Magnitude spectrum of a cascade of filter

Given is a input vector $x=[x_1 x_2 x_3] \in \mathbb{R}^{3N}$ with 3 consecutive sub-blocks $x_1,x_2,x_3 \in \mathbb{R}^{N}$, which goes through a cascade of filtering operations defined as Step 1 (1-...

Posets which extend centered sets to filters

(Post cross-posted from math.se.) Suppose $(\mathcal O, \leq)$ is an arbitrary poset. Let us say that $\mathcal O$ is compact if every $\mathcal C\subseteq\mathcal O$ which is centered (any finite ...

Without Choice: Are there filters of cardinality continuum?

Is it provable, in ZF (without Choice), that every filter can be extended to one of cardinality continuum? The extended filter is not requested to be an ultrafilter.

Is certain topology-related set a distributive lattice?

In my research the following problem appeared (and if it is true, this solves positively several my conjectures): Let $U$ be a fixed set (usually $U$ is infinite). Let $n$ be a fixed index set ($n$ ...

Why the intersection of a scott open (or \w the relatively compactness property) filter on a topology of a sober (and 2nd countable) space is compact?

Definitions and notations. Let $\mathcal{P}(X)$ the power set of $X$. Let $\tau_X\subseteq\mathcal{P}(X)$ a topology on X. We call $A$ irreducible if every time $A=B\cup C$ with $B,C$ closed set ...

Intersections of open sets and $\alpha$-favorable spaces

I would like to ask about some classes of topological spaces whether they have been studied, what are they called (if they have a name) and whether they have some interesting properties. For the ...

Analogous filter to Kalman filter that maximized mode instead (as opposed to minimizing variance)

I may have a potential application where maximizing the mode (as opposed to typically minimizing the variance) would be useful for state estimates. The situation may arise from skewed distributions ...

A characterization of the poset of filters on a set

For the lattices of all subsets of a given set it is known an axiomatic characterization: A poset is isomorphic to a set of all subsets of some set iff it is a complete atomic boolean algebra. The ...

About ordering and equivalence of filters

Let $U$ is a set. I will speak about filters on this set. If $f$ is a function and $a$ is a filter then I define $f \left[ a \right]$ as the filter whose base is $\lbrace f[A] | A \in a \rbrace$. I ...

Spaces of filters

This question arose more from curiosity than from an actual problem. There are situations when you embed some space $X$ in a set of filters on $X$, which inherits properties of $X$ or has even better ...

Do filters complementive to a given filter form a complete lattice?

Really I should first ask this question here on MathOverflow and only then post it as an open problem in Open Problem Garden and propose it as a polymath problem. Indeed I did the reverse and now hope ...
