We review some analytic, measure-theoretic and topological techniques for studying ergodicity and entropy of discrete dynamical systems, with a focus on Boole-type transformations and their generalizations. In particular, we present a new proof of the ergodicity of the 1-dimensional Boole map and prove that a certain 2-dimensional generalization is...

Finding effective finite-dimensional criteria for closed subspaces in Lp, endowed with some additional functional constraints, is a well-known and interesting problem. In this work, we are interested in some sufficient constraints on closed functional subspaces, Sp⊂Lp, whose finite dimensionality is not fixed a priori and can not be checked directl...

The aim of this paper is to develop an algebraically feasible approach to solutions of the oriented associativity equations. Our approach was based on a modification of the Adler–Kostant–Symes integrability scheme and applied to the co-adjoint orbits of the diffeomorphism loop group of the circle. A new two-parametric hierarchy of commuting to each...

There are studied Lie-algebraic structures of a wide class of heavenly type non-linear integrable equations, related with coadjoint flows on the adjoint space to a loop vector field Lie algebra on the torus. These flows are generated by the loop Lie algebras of vector fields on a torus and their coadjoint orbits and give rise to the compatible Lax-...

Statistics of natural images have shown to be non-Gaussian quantities displaying high kurtosis, heavy tails and sharp central cusps, i.e. sparse distributions. In this paper we extend on these results to show that the non-linear filter response distributions of natural colour images are also sparse. We then incorporate the statistics of natural ima...

Dirac-Sobolev and Dirac-Hardy inequalities in $L^1$ are established in which the $L^p$ spaces which feature in the classical Sobolev and Hardy inequalities are replaced by weak $L^p$ spaces. Counter examples to the analogues of the classical inequalities are shown to be provided by zero modes for appropriate Pauli operators constructed by Loss and...

Non-linear filter responses of natural colour images have been shown to display non-Gaussian heavy tailed distributions which we call sparse. These filters operate in the YUV colour space on the chroma channel U (and V) using weighting functions obtained from the gray image Y. In this paper we utilise this knowledge for denoising the chroma channel...

In this article we establish a connection between semi-supervised learning and compressive sampling. We show that sparsity and compressibility of the learning function can be obtained from heavy-tailed distributions of filter responses or coefficients in spectral decompositions. In many cases the NP-hard problems of finding sparsest solutions can b...

We obtain lower bounds for the magnetic Dirichlet form in dimensions d greater than or equal to 2. For d = 2 the results generalize a well known lower bound by the magnetic field strength: we replace the actual magnetic field B by an non-vanishing effective field which decays outside the support of B as dist( x, supp B)(-2). In the case d greater t...
