Generalized vector bundles on curves (Prepublished version)
(de Gruyter, 1998)In their paper [14] G. Harder and M.S. Narasimhan (and independently D. Quillen) have constructed a canonical flag of subbundles on any vector bundle on a complete smooth algebraic curve over a field. This flag measures ... 
Moduli schemes of generically simple Azumaya modules
(Documenta Mathematica, 2005)Let A be an Azumaya algebra over a smooth projective variety X or more generally, a torsion free coherent sheaf of algebras over X whose generic fiber is a central simple algebra. We show that generically simple torsion ... 
Mitigating collinearity in linear regression models using ridge, surrogate and raised estimators
(Cogent OA, 2016)Collinearity in the design matrix is a frequent problem in linear regression models, for example, with economic or medical data. Previous standard procedures to mitigate the effects of collinearity included ridge regression ... 
Response surface designs using the generalized variance inflation factors
(Cogent OA, 2015)We study response surface designs using the generalized variance inflation factors for subsets as an extension of the variance inflation factors. 
Ireland's participation in the 50th international mathematical olympiad
(Irish Mathematical Society, 2009)The 50th International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) took place in Bremen (Germany) from 12th July until 22nd July 2009. With 565 participants (59 of whom were girls) from 104 countries, this was the IMO with the largest ... 
Minimizing oblique errors for robust estimating
(Irish Mathematical Society, 2008)The slope of the best fit line from minimizing the sum of the squared oblique errors is shown to be the root of a polynomial of degree four. We introduce a median estimator for the slope and, using a case study, we show ... 
Analytic moduli spaces of simple sheaves on families of integral curves (Preprint version)
(Wiley, 2013)We prove the existence of fine moduli spaces of simple coherent sheaves on families of irreducible curves. Our proof is based on the existence of a universal upper bound of the Castelnuovo–Mumford regularity of such sheaves, ... 
Solving cubic equations in two variables
(Irish Mathematical Society, 2007)After recalling a geometric construction of all Pythagorean triples of integers, the same idea is applied to find rational solutions of cubic equations in two variables. This leads to the definition of the MordellWeil ... 
Elliptic curves – an introduction

The BelavinDrinfeld theorem on nondegenerate solutions of the classical YangBaxter equation
(IOP Publishing, 2010)We give a coordinate free proof of Belavin and Drinfeld's Theorem about the classi cation of nondegenerate solutions of the classical YangBaxter equation. The equivalence of different characterisations of nondegeneracy ... 
Algebraic dimension of twistor spaces whose fundamental system is a pencil (prepublished version)
(London Mathematical Society, 2017)We show that the algebraic dimension of a twistor space over nℂℙ2 cannot be two if n>4 and the fundamental system (that is, the linear system associated to the half‐anti‐canonical bundle, which is available on any twistor ... 
Moishezon twistor spaces without effective divisors of degree one (prepublished version)
(Universität Kaiserslautern, 1995)We study simply connected compact twistor spaces Z of positive type. Assuming that the fundamental linear system j \Gamma 1 2 Kj is at least a pencil, we prove the following theorem: the existence of an irreducible curve ... 
Twistor spaces with a pencil of fundamental divisors
(Documenta Mathematica, 1999)In this paper simply connected twistor spaces Z containing a pencil of fundamental divisors are studied. The Riemannian base for such spaces is diffeomorphic to the connected sum nCP2 . We obtain for n 5 a complete ... 
Homological algebra with locally compact abelian groups (Prepublished Version)
(Elsevier, 2007)In this article we study locally compact abelian (LCA) groups from the viewpoint of derived categories, using that their category is quasiabelian in the sense of J.P. Schneiders. We deﬁne a wellbehaved derived Homcomplex ... 
Some moduli stacks of symplectic bundles on a curve are rational (Prepublished version)
(Elsevier, 2008)Let C be a smooth projective curve of genus g ≥ 2 over a ﬁeld k. Given a line bundle L on C, let Sympl2n,L be the moduli stack of vector bundles E of rank 2n on C endowed with a nowhere degenerate symplectic form b : E ⊗ ... 
EinsteinHermitian connection on twisted Higgs bundles (Prepublished Version)
(Elsevier Masson, 2010)Let X be a smooth projective variety over C. We prove that a twisted Higgs vector bundle (E , θ) on X admits an Einstein–Hermitian connection if and only if (E , θ) is polystable. A similar result for twisted vector bundles ... 
Torelli theorem for the DeligneHitchin moduli space (Prepublished version)
(Springer Verlag, 2009)Fix integers g ≥ 3 and r ≥ 2, with r ≥ 3 if g = 3. Given a compact connected Riemann surface X of genus g, let M DH (X) denote the corresponding SL(r,C) Deligne–Hitchin moduli space. We prove that the complex analytic ... 
The moduli stack of vector bundles on a curve (Prepublished Version)
(Ramanujan Mathematical Society, 2010)This expository text tries to explain brie y and not too technically the notions of stack and algebraic stack, emphasizing as an example the moduli stack of vector bundles on an algebraic curve. 
Trace forms of Symbol Algebras(PrePublished Version)
(World Scientific Publishing Complany, 2012)Let S be a symbol algebra. The trace form of S is computed and it is shown how this form can be used to determine whether S is a division algebra or not. In addition, the exterior powers of the trace form of S are computed. 
SU(5) heterotic standard model bundles (Prepublished version)
(Springer Verlag, 2012)We construct a class of stable SU(5) bundles on an elliptically ﬁbered CalabiYau threefold with two sections, a variant of the ordinary Weierstrass ﬁbration, which admits a free involution. The bundles are invariant under ...
