[1] It is well known that anomalies of the Indian Summer Monsoon Rainfall (ISMR) are linked to El NiÃ±o and Southern Oscillation (ENSO). We show that large anomalies of the ISMR are also linked to theâ€¦ (More)

PURPOSE
Intestinal myiasis is a condition when the fly larvae inhabit the gastrointestinal tract and are passed out in faeces. This type of infestation results when eggs or larvae of the fly,â€¦ (More)

We introduce the notion of a topological geodesic in a 3-manifold. Under suitable hypotheses on the fundamental group, for instance word-hyperbolicity, topological geodesics are shown to have theâ€¦ (More)

We give a description of degree-one maps between closed, oriented 3-manifolds in terms of surgery. Namely, we show that there is a degree-one map from a closed, oriented 3-manifold M to a closed,â€¦ (More)

Let X be a geometrically irreducible smooth projective curve defined over R, of genus at least 2, that admits a nontrivial automorphism, Ïƒ . Assume that X does not have any real points. Let Ï„ be theâ€¦ (More)

We show that if F is a smooth, closed, orientable surface embedded in a closed, orientable 3-manifold M such that for each Riemannian metric g on M , F is isotopic to a least-area surface F (g), thenâ€¦ (More)

We show that, for a closed non-orientable surface F , an automorphism of H1(F,Z) is induced by a homeomorphism of F if and only if it preserves the (mod 2) intersection pairing. We shall also proveâ€¦ (More)

We prove that there exists an obstruction to an open simply connected n-manifold of dimension n â‰¥ 5 being geometrically simply connected. In particular there exist uncountably many simply connectedâ€¦ (More)

We show that any 3-dimensional homotopy lens space M that is simple-homotopy equivalent to a lens space L(p, q) is s-cobordal to this lens space. It follows that M has the same multi-signature asâ€¦ (More)

We show that the algebraic intersection number of Scott and Swarup for splittings of free groups coincides with the geometric intersection number for the sphere complex of the connected sum of copiesâ€¦ (More)
