We derive local integral and sup- estimates for the curvature of stable marginally outer trapped surfaces in a sliced space-time. The estimates bound the shear of a marginally outer trapped surface in terms of the intrinsic and extrinsic curvature of a slice containing the surface. These estimates are well adapted to situations of physical interest, such as dynamical horizons.
We develop monopole and instanton Floer homology groups for balanced sutured manifolds, in the spirit of A. Juhász. "Holomorphic discs and sutured manifolds." Algebr. Geom. Topol., 6:1429–1457 (electronic), 2006. Applications include a new proof of Property P for knots.
The sharp affine isoperimetric inequality that bounds the volume of the centroid body of a star body (from below) by the volume of the star body itself is the Busemann-Petty centroid inequality. A decade ago, the $L_p$ analogue of the classical Busemann- Petty centroid inequality was proved. Here, the definition of the centroid body is extended to an Orlicz centroid body of a star body, and the corresponding analogue of the Busemann-Petty centroid inequality is established for convex bodies.
In this paper, we build properly embedded singly periodic minimal surfaces which have infinite total curvature in the quotient by their period. These surfaces are constructed by adding a handle to the toroidal half-plane layers defined by H. Karcher. The technics that we use are to solve a Jenkins-Serrin problem over a strip domain and to consider the conjugate minimal surface to the graph. To construct the Jenkins Serrin graph, we solve in fact the maximal surface equation and use an other conjugation technic.
We relate previously defined quantum characteristic classes to Morse theoretic aspects of the Hofer length functional on Ham (M, ω). As an application we prove a theorem which can be interpreted as stating that this functional is “virtually” a perfect Morse-Bott functional. This can be applied to study the topology and Hofer geometry of Ham(M, ω). We also use this to give a prediction for the index of some geodesics for this functional, which was recently partially verified by Yael Karshon and Jennifer Slimowitz.
We study adiabatic limits of Ricci-flat Kähler metrics on a Calabi-Yau manifold which is the total space of a holomorphic fibration when the volume of the fibers goes to zero. By establishing some new a priori estimates for the relevant complex Monge-Ampère equation, we show that the Ricci-flat metrics collapse (away from the singular fibers) to a metric on the base of the fibration. This metric has Ricci curvature equal to a Weil- Petersson metric that measures the variation of complex structure of the Calabi-Yau fibers. This generalizes results of Gross-Wilson for $K3$ surfaces to higher dimensions.
