The purpose of this paper is to develop an equivariant intersection theory for actions of linear algebraic groups on algebraic schemes. The theory is based on our construction of equivariant Chow groups. They are algebraic analogues of equivariant cohomology groups which have all the functorial properties of ordinary Chow groups. In addition, they enjoy… (More)
We will construct new classes of Parseval frames for a Hilbert space which allow signal reconstruction from the absolute value of the frame coefficients. As a consequence, signal reconstruction can be done without using phase or its estimation. This verifies a longstanding conjecture of the speech processing community.
The primary goal of this paper is to develop fast algorithms for signal reconstruction from magnitudes of frame coefficients. This problem is important to several areas of research in signal processing, especially speech recognition technology, as well as state tomography in quantum theory. We present linear reconstruction algorithms for tight frames… (More)
We analyze a fundamental question in Hilbert space frame theory: What is the optimal decomposition of a Parseval frame? We will see that this question impacts several famous unsolved problems in different areas of mathematics. As a step towards the solution of this question, we give a new identity which holds for all Parseval frames.
A complex frame is a collection of vectors that span C M and define measurements , called intensity measurements, on vectors in C M. In purely mathematical terms, the problem of phase retrieval is to recover a complex vector from its intensity measurements, namely the modulus of its inner product with these frame vectors. We show that any vector is uniquely… (More)
A natural question is to determine which algebraic stacks are qoutient stacks. In this paper we give some partial answers and relate it to the old question of whether, for a scheme X, the natural map from the Brauer goup (equivalence classes of Azumaya algebras) to the cohomological Brauer group (the torsion subgroup of H 2 (X, G m) is surjective.
We will construct new classes of Parseval frames for a Hilbert space which allow signal reconstruction from the absolute value of the frame coefficients. As a consequence, signal reconstruction can be done without using noisy phase or its estimation. This verifies a longstanding conjecture of the speech processing community.
Let G be a reductive algebraic group over an algebraically closed field k. An algebraic characteristic class of degree i for principal G-bundles on schemes is a function c assigning to each principal G-bundle E → X an element c(E) in the Chow group A i X, natural with respect to pullbacks. These classes are analogous to topological characteristic classes… (More)
