We study the almost everywhere pointwise convergence of the solutions to Schrödinger equations in $\mathbb{R}^2$. It is shown that $\lim_{t \to 0} e^{it\Delta}f(x) = f(x)$ almost everywhere for all $f \in H^s (\mathbb{R}^2)$ ...

Let E denote a Morava E-theory at a prime p and height h. We characterize the power operations on π0 of a K(h)-local E∞-E-algebra in terms of a small amount of algebraic data. This involves only the E-cohomology of two ...

Cells use actin to provide structure and stability to the membrane, to drive motility, and to adhere to, pull on, and reorganize the extracellular matrix. Here I demonstrate that α-actinin-4, a well-known actin crosslinking ...
