A bstract We derive a nonBPS linear ansatz using the charged Weyl formalism in string and Mtheory backgrounds. Generic solutions are static and axiallysymmetric with an arbitrary number of nonBPS sources corresponding to various brane, momentum and KKm charges. Regular sources are either fourcharge nonextremal black holes or smooth nonBPS bubbles. We construct several families such as chains of nonextremal black holes or smooth nonBPS bubbling geometries and study their physics. The smooth horizonless geometries can have the same mass and charges as nonextremal black holes. Furthermore, we find examples that scale towards the fourcharge BPS black hole when the nonBPS parameters are taken to be small, but the horizon is smoothly resolved by adding a small amount of nonextremality.

A bstract We construct a family of smooth charged bubbling solitons in $$ \mathbbm{M} $$ M 4 ×T 2 , fourdimensional Minkowski with a twotorus. The solitons are characterized by a degeneration pattern of the torus along a line in $$ \mathbbm{M} $$ M 4 defining a chain of topological cycles. They live in the same parameter regime as nonBPS nonextremal fourdimensional black holes, and are ultracompact with sizes ranging from miscroscopic to macroscopic scales. The sixdimensional framework can be embedded in type IIB supergravity where the solitons are identified with geometric transitions of nonBPS D1D5KKm bound states. Interestingly, the geometries admit a minimal surface that smoothly opens up to a bubbly end of space. Away from the solitons, the solutions are indistinguishable from a new class of singular geometries. By taking a limit of large number of bubbles, the soliton geometries can be matched arbitrarily close to the singular spacetimes. This provides the first classical resolution of a curvature singularity beyond the framework of supersymmetry and supergravity by blowing up topological cycles wrapped by fluxes at the vicinity of the singularity.

A bstract We construct smooth static bubble solutions, denoted as topological stars, in fivedimensional EinsteinMaxwell theories which are asymptotic to ℝ 1 , 3 ×S 1 . The bubbles are supported by allowing electromagnetic fluxes to wrap smooth topological cycles. The solutions live in the same regime as nonextremal static charged black strings, that reduce to black holes in four dimensions. We generalize to multibody configurations on a line by constructing closedform generalized charged Weyl solutions in the same theory. Generic solutions consist of topological stars and black strings stacked on a line, that are wrapped by electromagnetic fluxes. We embed the solutions in type IIB String Theory on S 1 ×T 4 . In this framework, the charged Weyl solutions provide a novel class in String Theory of multiple charged objects in the nonsupersymmetric and nonextremal black hole regime.

Given a closed [Formula: see text]dimensional submanifold [Formula: see text], encapsulated in a compact domain [Formula: see text], [Formula: see text], we consider the problem of determining the intrinsic geometry of the obstacle [Formula: see text] (such as volume, integral curvature) from the scattering data, produced by the reflections of geodesic trajectories from the boundary of a tubular [Formula: see text]neighborhood [Formula: see text] of [Formula: see text] in [Formula: see text]. The geodesics that participate in this scattering emanate from the boundary [Formula: see text] and terminate there after a few reflections from the boundary [Formula: see text]. However, the major problem in this setting is that a ray (a billiard trajectory) may get stuck in the vicinity of [Formula: see text] by entering some trap there so that this ray will have infinitely many reflections from [Formula: see text]. To rule out such a possibility, we modify the geometry of a tube [Formula: see text] by building it from spherical bubbles. We need to use [Formula: see text] many bubbling tubes [Formula: see text] for detecting certain global invariants of [Formula: see text], invariants that reflect its intrinsic geometry. Thus, the words “layered scattering” are in the title.more »

Sparse learning models are popular in many application areas. Objective functions in sparse learning models are usually nonsmooth, which makes it difﬁcult to solve them numerically. We develop a fast and convergent twostep iteration scheme for solving a class of nondifferentiable optimization models motivated from sparse learning. To overcome the difﬁculty of the nondifferentiability of the models, we ﬁrst present characterizations of their solutions as ﬁxedpoints of mappings involving the proximity operators of the functions appearing in the objective functions. We then introduce a twostep ﬁxedpoint algorithm to compute the solutions. We establish convergence results of the proposed twostep iteration scheme and compare it with the alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM). In particular, we derive speciﬁc twostep iteration algorithms for three models in machine learning: l1SVM classiﬁcation, l1SVM regression, and the SVM classiﬁcation with the group LASSO regularizer. Numerical experiments with some synthetic datasets and some benchmark datasets show that the proposed algorithm outperforms ADMM and the linear programming method in computational time and memory storage costs.
