The following question of V. Stakhovskii was passed to us by N. Dolbilin [4]. Take the barycentric subdivision of a triangle to obtain six triangles, then take the barycentric subdivision of each of these six triangles and so on; is it true that the resulting collection of triangles is dense (up to similarities) in the space of all triangles? We shall show(More)
There are many results on edge-magic, and vertex-magic, labellings of finite graphs. Here we consider magic labellings of countably infinite graphs over abelian groups. We also give an example of a finite connected graph that is edge-magic over one, but not over all, abelian groups of the appropriate order.
In an earlier paper [Journal of Mathematical Economics, 37 (2002) 17–38], we proved that if a preference relation on a commodity space is non-representable by a real-valued function then that chain is necessarily a long chain, a planar chain, an Aronszajn-like chain or a Souslin chain. In this paper, we study the class of planar chains, the simplest example(More)

Abstract We unify and extend three classical theorems in continued fraction theory, namely the Stern-Stolz Theorem,(More)
This paper contains some tentative steps towards describing the structure of non-discrete subgroups of SL(2; R). The main idea is that if a one-parameter family of groups G z varies analytically with the parameter z , then, using analytic continuation, certain results about discrete groups can be analytically continued to those groups in the family that are(More)
