Potassium-argon dating of five basalts from the three main islands of the Juan Fernández (or Robinson Crusoe) Islands of Chile in the southeastern Pacific gives ages of 1.01 +/- 0.12 and 2.44 +/- 0.14 million years for Masafuera, 3.79 +/- 0.20 and 4.23 +/- 0.16 for Masatierra, and 5.8 +/- 2.1 for Santa Clara. These ages are much younger than that of the(More)
Let T n denote the set of triangulations of a convex polygon K with n sides. We study the random walk on T n whose transitions are \\ips" of one of the n ? 3 internal diagonals of the current triangulation, the choice of diagonal being random. By bounding the conductance of this graph we show that the walk mixes rapidly, namely in time O(n). A direct(More)
