Link identifier share facebook archive #share-link-archive-27808 Link identifier share twitter archive #share-link-archive-32086
We will describe network processes in which, at each step, each node communicates with its neighbors, or a random subset of neighbors, and updates its state according to the outcome of these communications. We will…

Link identifier share facebook archive #share-link-archive-21151 Link identifier share twitter archive #share-link-archive-99471
Given a complete Riemannian manifold that looks enough like Euclidean space at infinity, physicists have defined a quantity called the “mass” that measures the asymptotic deviation of the geometry from the Euclidean model. After first…

Link identifier share facebook archive #share-link-archive-52929 Link identifier share twitter archive #share-link-archive-32015
We review some probabilistic interpretations of symmetric and skew-symmetric Fock spaces related to Markov processes. Most results will be presented in the simple context of finite graphs.

Link identifier share facebook archive #share-link-archive-14482 Link identifier share twitter archive #share-link-archive-56575
Giving meaning to programs through axiomatic, denotational, and operational semantics is one of the main goals of theoretical computer science since its early days. Traditionally, program semantics is built around notions of program equivalence and…
