(1997)In (Da92) E.C. Dade announcing the first of what has to be a series of conjectures concerned with counting characters in the blocks of finite groups. Specifically, Dade's socalled Ordinary Conjecture asserts that if a ...

(1980)It is known that many decision problems are unsolvable in the class of all finitely presented groups. When the class of groups is restricted, problems previously unsolvable can become solvable. In this work we investigate ...

(2002)Given an (undecidable) elementary theory of a computabilitytheoretic structure, it is natural to ask how much of the theory is decidable. An AEsentence is a sentence in prenex normal form with all universal quantifiers ...

(1992)A theory T admits elimination of imaginaries (EI) if every definable equivalence relation $\sim$ is the kernel of a definable map f. (I.e., $\vec{x}\sim\vec{y}\Longleftrightarrow f(\vec{x})=f(\vec{y}).)$ This term was ...

(20140530)The Hilbert scheme of $n$ points in a smooth del Pezzo surface $S$ parameterizes zerodimensional subschemes with length $n$ on $S$. We construct a flat family of deformations of Hilb$^n S$ which can be conceptually ...

(1999)Having explicitly calculated universal deformations, the next logical question is whether we can calculate deformations with local restrictions. In fact, the ordinary deformation problem is representable, and we explain ...

(20120918)We examine several problems in extremal graph theory, emphasizing problems involving games on graphs. In Chapter 2, we study a variant of Ramsey theory, seeking Ramsey hosts with small maximum degree. We focus on finding ...

(1987)Consider the second order nonlinear differential operator ${\cal L}y$ = Ly + $\eta y\sp3$, where $\eta$ = $\pm$1 and L, the linear part of ${\cal L}$, is of the form Ly = $y\sp{\prime\prime}$ + $p(x)y\sp\prime$ + q(x)y. ...

(20120918)For finite group presentations, the word problem is solvable if and only if the Dehn function is computable. Additionally, the bounded word problem is always solvable. For finitely generated decidable group presentations, ...

(2008)Our final problem is one in graph representations. We develop a lemma on traces of hypergraphs, extending results of Balogh and Bollobas. We then use this lemma, along with probabilistic methods, to show that for every ...
