A gravitational effective action on a finite triangulation as a discrete model of continuous concepts

Albert Ko, Martin Roček (2006)

Archivum Mathematicum

We recall how the Gauss-Bonnet theorem can be interpreted as a finite dimensional index theorem. We describe the construction given in hep-th/0512293 of a function that can be interpreted as a gravitational effective action on a triangulation. The variation of this function under local rescalings of the edge lengths sharing a vertex is the Euler density, and we use it to illustrate how continuous concepts can have natural discrete analogs.

A new characterization of r -stable hypersurfaces in space forms

H. F. de Lima, M. A. Velásquez (2011)

Archivum Mathematicum

In this paper we study the r -stability of closed hypersurfaces with constant r -th mean curvature in Riemannian manifolds of constant sectional curvature. In this setting, we obtain a characterization of the r -stable ones through of the analysis of the first eigenvalue of an operator naturally attached to the r -th mean curvature.
