Intrinsic definition of arc length
Does your formula give the same value as the usual definition of arc length? How is the + to be interpreted? As a Minkowski sum? Thanks. |

Intrinsic definition of arc length
@DavidRoberts I've considered this option, but I think there's a catch: to talk about line segments created by a set of points $S$ sampled from the curve, we would need to rely on a (sensible) ordering of the points in $S$ - which seems to throw us back to the need for a parametrization of sorts. Do you agree or am I missing something here? |

power laws emerging from the sandpile model
Thanks, @YoavKallus, this is very interesting. |

Does this inequality always hold?
So, what is the motivation/context for this conjecture? |

How large can a set of nearly equidistant points be?
@BenoîtKloeckner I am more interested in $\epsilon>\frac{1}{n-1}$ and fixed. |

How large can a set of nearly equidistant points be?
@BillJohnson JL says that if I have such a set in a higher dimension $n \approx e^{k}$ , then I can embed it into $\mathbb{R}^{k}$ while (almost) preserving the distance property. But I don't see how it guarantees the existence of such a set to begin with. Am I missing something here? P.S. JL does not assume anything on the relation of the pairwise distances to each other, while in this case I need to. P.P.S. The question actually originates in an attempt to understand a result related to JL. :) |

What are the external triumphs of matroid theory?
Can you share it now...? |

When does a d.r.v. take a value very close to the mean?
@Suvrit Yes, sort of. These are the volumes of all $n \times k$ submatrices of a fixed $n \times m$ matrix. |

@Turbo Yes, I think it does. |

@Turbo In that case, things are open again.... :( If you want to discuss the specific case, feel free to email me. |
