Scherk-Schwarz reductions are a generalization of Kaluza-Klein reductions in which the higher dimensional fields are allowed to have a dependence on the compactiifed coordinates. This is possible only if the higher dimensional theory has a global symmetry and the dependence is dictated by this symmetry. In this thesis we consider generalised Scherk Schwarz reductions of supergravity and superstring theories with twists by electromagnetic dualities that are symmetries of the equations of motion but not of the action, such as the S-duality of ÞD=4, N=4Þ super-Yang-Mills coupled to supergravity. The reduction cannot be done on the action itself, but must be done either on the field equations or on a duality invariant form of the action, such as one in the doubled formalism in which potentials are introduced for both electric and magnetic fields. The resulting theory in odd dimensions has massive form fields satisfying a self-duality condition ÞdA

Toeplitz operators on Arveson and Dirichlet spaces
Alpay, Daniel; Kaptanoglu, H. Turgay (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2007-05-01)
We define Toeplitz operators on all Dirichlet spaces on the unit ball of C-N and develop their basic properties. We characterize bounded, compact, and Schatten-class Toeplitz operators with positive symbols in terms of Carleson measures and Berezin transforms. Our results naturally extend those known for weighted Bergman spaces, a special case applies to the Arveson space, and we recover the classical Hardy-space Toeplitz operators in a limiting case; thus we unify the theory of Toeplitz operators on all th...
Galois structure of modular forms of even weight
Gurel, E. (Elsevier BV, 2009-10-01)
We calculate the equivariant Euler characteristics of powers of the canonical sheaf on certain modular curves over Z which have a tame action of a finite abelian group. As a consequence, we obtain information on the Galois module structure of modular forms of even weight having Fourier coefficients in certain ideals of rings of cyclotomic algebraic integers.

ON PARAMETRIC LOWER BOUNDS FOR DISCRETE-TIME FILTERING
Fritsche, Carsten; Orguner, Umut; Gustafsson, Fredrik (2016-03-25)
Parametric Cramer-Rao lower bounds (CRLBs) are given for discrete-time systems with non-zero process noise. Recursive expressions for the conditional bias and mean-square-error (MSE) (given a specific state sequence) are obtained for Kalman filter estimating the states of a linear Gaussian system. It is discussed that Kalman filter is conditionally biased with a non-zero process noise realization in the given state sequence. Recursive parametric CRLBs are obtained for biased estimators for linear state esti...
Fibre products of Kummer covers and curves with many points
Özbudak, Ferruh (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2007-10-01)
We study the general fibre product of any two Kummer covers of the projective line over finite fields. Under some assumptions, we obtain an involved condition for the existence of rational points in the fibre product over a rational point of the projective line so that we determine the exact number of the rational points. Using this, we construct explicit examples of such fibre products with many rational points. In particular we obtain a record and a new entry for the table (http://www.science.uva.nl/(simi...
AdS-plane wave and pp-wave solutions of generic gravity theories
GÜRSES, METİN; Sisman, Tahsin Cagri; Tekin, Bayram (2014-12-02)
We construct the anti-de Sitter-plane wave solutions of generic gravity theory built on the arbitrary powers of the Riemann tensor and its derivatives in analogy with the pp-wave solutions. In constructing the wave solutions of the generic theory, we show that the most general two-tensor built from the Riemann tensor and its derivatives can be written in terms of the traceless Ricci tensor. Quadratic gravity theory plays a major role; therefore, we revisit the wave solutions in this theory. As examples of o...
