In this paper we give a derivation for the allometric scaling relation between the metabolic rate and the mass of animals and plants. We show that the characteristic scaling exponent of 3/4 occurringâ€¦ (More)

It is well known that, in the first-order formalism, pure three-dimensional gravity is just the BF theory. Similarly, four-dimensional general relativity can be formulated as BF theory with anâ€¦ (More)

1.Introduction The approaching date for broad band gravity wave detectors to come online makes the study of astrophysical sources of gravitational radiation immediately pressing. Collisions amongâ€¦ (More)

We prove that the Gauss map of a surface of constant mean curvature embedded in Minkowski space is harmonic. This fact will then be used to study 2+1 gravity for surfaces of genus higher than one. Byâ€¦ (More)

Whereas formal mathematical theories are well studied, computers cannot yet adequately represent and reason about mathematical dialogues and other informal texts. To address this gap, we haveâ€¦ (More)
