Each of them deals with problems in the design of linear time-invariant systems with certain prescribed properties, such as stability and cost optimality. The first part addresses ... application/pdf PDF (503kB) • (2012-09-18) The$q$-Gaussian von Neumann algebras were first defined and studied by Bo\.{z}ejko and Speicher in connection with noncommutative brownian motion. The main results of the present work is to establish that the$q$-Gaussian ... application/pdf PDF (326kB) • (2018-04-10) We consider generalizations of no$k$-equal spaces as well as their relations to other concepts. For any topological space$X$, the$n^{th}$no$k$-equal space of$X$is the space of$n$points from$X$such that no$k\$ ...

The spaces of coverings (SoC) arise from various configuration spaces of the covering problems. We study the topology of these spaces for different domains and covering agents. In particular, we study the SoCs for grid ...
