Abstract p and a homogeneous system ofm linear equations for$$a_{j,1}x_1+\dots +a_{j,k}x_k=0$$ ${a}_{j,1}{x}_{1}+\cdots +{a}_{j,k}{x}_{k}=0$ with coefficients$$j=1,\dots ,m$$ $j=1,\cdots ,m$ . Suppose that$$a_{j,i}\in \mathbb {F}_p$$ ${a}_{j,i}\in {F}_{p}$ , that$$k\ge 3m$$ $k\ge 3m$ for$$a_{j,1}+\dots +a_{j,k}=0$$ ${a}_{j,1}+\cdots +{a}_{j,k}=0$ and that every$$j=1,\dots ,m$$ $j=1,\cdots ,m$ minor of the$$m\times m$$ $m\times m$ matrix$$m\times k$$ $m\times k$ is nonsingular. Then we prove that for any (large)$$(a_{j,i})_{j,i}$$ ${\left({a}_{j,i}\right)}_{j,i}$n , any subset of size$$A\subseteq \mathbb {F}_p^n$$ $A\subseteq {F}_{p}^{n}$ contains a solution$$A> C\cdot \Gamma ^n$$ $\leftA\right>C\xb7{\Gamma}^{n}$ to the given system of equations such that the vectors$$(x_1,\dots ,x_k)\in A^k$$ $({x}_{1},\cdots ,{x}_{k})\in {A}^{k}$ are all distinct. Here,$$x_1,\dots ,x_k\in A$$ ${x}_{1},\cdots ,{x}_{k}\in A$C and are constants only depending on$$\Gamma $$ $\Gamma $p ,m andk such that . The crucial point here is the condition for the vectors$$\Gamma in the solution$$x_1,\dots ,x_k$$ ${x}_{1},\cdots ,{x}_{k}$ to be distinct. If we relax this condition and only demand that$$(x_1,\dots ,x_k)\in A^k$$ $({x}_{1},\cdots ,{x}_{k})\in {A}^{k}$ are not all equal, then the statement would follow easily from Tao’s slice rank polynomial method. However, handling the distinctness condition is much harder, and requires a new approach. While all previous combinatorial applications of the slice rank polynomial method have relied on the slice rank of diagonal tensors, we use a slice rank argument for a nondiagonal tensor in combination with combinatorial and probabilistic arguments.$$x_1,\dots ,x_k$$ ${x}_{1},\cdots ,{x}_{k}$ 
Abstract We continue the program of proving circuit lower bounds via circuit satisfiability algorithms. So far, this program has yielded several concrete results, proving that functions in
and other complexity classes do not have small circuits (in the worst case and/or on average) from various circuit classes$\mathsf {Quasi}\text {}\mathsf {NP} = \mathsf {NTIME}[n^{(\log n)^{O(1)}}]$ $\mathrm{Quasi}\mathrm{NP}=\mathrm{NTIME}\left[{n}^{{\left(\mathrm{log}n\right)}^{O\left(1\right)}}\right]$ , by showing that$\mathcal { C}$ $C$ admits nontrivial satisfiability and/or$\mathcal { C}$ $C$# SAT algorithms which beat exhaustive search by a minor amount. In this paper, we present a new strong lower bound consequence of having a nontrivial# SAT algorithm for a circuit class . Say that a symmetric Boolean function${\mathcal C}$ $C$f (x _{1},…,x _{n}) issparse if it outputs 1 onO (1) values of . We show that for every sparse${\sum }_{i} x_{i}$ ${\sum}_{i}{x}_{i}$f , and for all “typical” , faster$\mathcal { C}$ $C$# SAT algorithms for circuits imply lower bounds against the circuit class$\mathcal { C}$ $C$ , which may be$f \circ \mathcal { C}$ $f\circ C$stronger than itself. In particular:$\mathcal { C}$ $C$# SAT algorithms forn ^{k}size circuits running in 2^{n}/$\mathcal { C}$ $C$n ^{k}time (for allk ) implyN E X P does not have circuits of polynomial size.$(f \circ \mathcal { C})$ $(f\circ C)$# SAT algorithms for size$2^{n^{{\varepsilon }}}$ ${2}^{{n}^{\epsilon}}$ circuits running in$\mathcal { C}$ $C$ time (for some$2^{nn^{{\varepsilon }}}$ ${2}^{n{n}^{\epsilon}}$ε > 0) implyQ u a s i N P does not have circuits of polynomial size.$(f \circ \mathcal { C})$ $(f\circ C)$Applying
# SAT algorithms from the literature, one immediate corollary of our results is thatQ u a s i N P does not haveE M A J ∘A C C ^{0}∘T H R circuits of polynomial size, whereE M A J is the “exact majority” function, improving previous lower bounds againstA C C ^{0}[Williams JACM’14] andA C C ^{0}∘T H R [Williams STOC’14], [MurrayWilliams STOC’18]. This is the first nontrivial lower bound against such a circuit class. 
Abstract Let
be an elliptically fibered$$X\rightarrow {{\mathbb {P}}}^1$$ $X\to {P}^{1}$K 3 surface, admitting a sequence of Ricciflat metrics collapsing the fibers. Let$$\omega _{i}$$ ${\omega}_{i}$V be a holomorphicSU (n ) bundle overX , stable with respect to . Given the corresponding sequence$$\omega _i$$ ${\omega}_{i}$ of Hermitian–Yang–Mills connections on$$\Xi _i$$ ${\Xi}_{i}$V , we prove that, ifE is a generic fiber, the restricted sequence converges to a flat connection$$\Xi _i_{E}$$ ${\Xi}_{i}{}_{E}$ . Furthermore, if the restriction$$A_0$$ ${A}_{0}$ is of the form$$V_E$$ ${V}_{E}$ for$$\oplus _{j=1}^n{\mathcal {O}}_E(q_j0)$$ ${\oplus}_{j=1}^{n}{O}_{E}({q}_{j}0)$n distinct points , then these points uniquely determine$$q_j\in E$$ ${q}_{j}\in E$ .$$A_0$$ ${A}_{0}$ 
Abstract The Coulombfree^{1}
S _{0}protonproton (p p ) scattering length relies heavily on numerous and distinct theoretical techniques to remove the Coulomb contribution. Here, it has been determined from the halfofftheenergyshellp p scattering cross section measured at centerofmass energies below 1 MeV using the quasifreep +d →p +p +n reaction. A Bayesian datafitting approach using the expression of the swave nucleonnucleon scattering cross section returned ap p scattering length fm and effective range$${a}_{pp}=18.1{7}_{0.58}^{+0.52}{ }_{stat}\pm 0.0{1}_{syst}$$ ${a}_{pp}=18.1{7}_{0.58}^{+0.52}{\mid}_{stat}\pm 0.0{1}_{syst}$r _{0} = 2.80 ± 0.05_{stat} ± 0.001_{syst}fm. A model based on universality concepts has been developed to interpret this result. It accounts for the shortrange interaction as a whole, nuclear and residual electromagnetic, according to what the swave phaseshiftδ does in the description of lowenergy nucleonnucleon scattering data. We conclude that our parameters are representative of the shortrange physics and propose to assess the charge symmetry breaking of the shortrange interaction instead of just the nuclear interaction. This is consistent with the current understanding that the charge dependence of nuclear forces is due to different masses of updown quarks and their electromagnetic interactions. This achievement suggests that these properties have a lesser than expected impact in the context of the charge symmetry breaking. 
Abstract We present a chemodynamical study of the Grus I ultrafaint dwarf galaxy (UFD) from mediumresolution (
R ∼ 11,000) Magellan/IMACS spectra of its individual member stars. We identify eight confirmed members of Grus I, based on their low metallicities and coherent radial velocities, and four candidate members for which only velocities are derived. In contrast to previous work, we find that Grus I has a very low mean metallicity of 〈[Fe/H]〉 = −2.62 ± 0.11 dex, making it one of the most metalpoor UFDs. Grus I has a systemic radial velocity of −143.5 ± 1.2 km s^{−1}and a velocity dispersion of km s^{−1}, which results in a dynamical mass of ${\sigma}_{\mathrm{rv}}={2.5}_{0.8}^{+1.3}$ ${M}_{1/2}({r}_{h})={8}_{4}^{+12}\times {10}^{5}$M _{⊙}and a masstolight ratio ofM/L _{V}= ${440}_{250}^{+650}$M _{⊙}/L _{⊙}. Under the assumption of dynamical equilibrium, our analysis confirms that Grus I is a darkmatterdominated UFD (M/L > 80M _{⊙}/L _{⊙}). However, we do not resolve a metallicity dispersion (σ _{[Fe/H]}< 0.44 dex). Our results indicate that Grus I is a fairly typical UFD with parameters that agree with mass–metallicity and metallicityluminosity trends for faint galaxies. This agreement suggests that Grus I has not lost an especially significant amount of mass from tidal encounters with the Milky Way, in line with its orbital parameters. Intriguingly, Grus I has among the lowest central densities ( ${\rho}_{1/2}\sim {3.5}_{2.1}^{+5.7}\times {10}^{7}$M _{⊙}kpc^{−3}) of the UFDs that are not known to be tidally disrupting. Models of the formation and evolution of UFDs will need to explain the diversity of these central densities, in addition to any diversity in the outer regions of these relic galaxies.
