Hard disks systems are often considered as prototypes for simple fluids. In a statistical mechanics context, the hard disk configuration space is generally quotiented by the action of various symmetry groups. The changes in the topological and geometric properties of the configuration spaces effected by such quotient maps are studied for small numbers of disks on a square and hexagonal torus. A metric is defined on the configuration space and the various quotient spaces that respects the desired symmetries. This is used to construct explicit triangulations of the configuration spaces as

Abstract rational points on all the 64 maximal AtkinLehner quotients$$\mathbb {Q}$$ $Q$ such that the quotient is hyperelliptic. To achieve this, we use a combination of various methods, namely the classical Chabauty–Coleman, elliptic curve Chabauty, quadratic Chabauty, and the bielliptic quadratic Chabauty method (from a forthcoming preprint of the fourthnamed author) combined with the MordellWeil sieve. Additionally, for squarefree levels$$X_0(N)^*$$ ${X}_{0}{\left(N\right)}^{\ast}$N , we classify all rational points as cusps, CM points (including their CM field and$$\mathbb {Q}$$ $Q$j invariants) and exceptional ones. We further indicate how to use this to compute the rational points on all of their modular coverings.$$\mathbb {Q}$$ $Q$ 
Abstract Twodimensional (2D) Dirac states with linear dispersion have been observed in graphene and on the surface of topological insulators. 2D Dirac states discovered so far are exclusively pinned at highsymmetry points of the Brillouin zone, for example, surface Dirac states at
in topological insulators Bi_{2}Se(Te)_{3}and Dirac cones at$$\overline{{{\Gamma }}}$$ $\overline{\Gamma}$K and points in graphene. The lowenergy dispersion of those Dirac states are isotropic due to the constraints of crystal symmetries. In this work, we report the observation of novel 2D Dirac states in antimony atomic layers with phosphorene structure. The Dirac states in the antimony films are located at generic momentum points. This unpinned nature enables versatile ways such as lattice strains to control the locations of the Dirac points in momentum space. In addition, dispersions around the unpinned Dirac points are highly anisotropic due to the reduced symmetry of generic momentum points. The exotic properties of unpinned Dirac states make antimony atomic layers a new type of 2D Dirac semimetals that are distinct from graphene.$$K^{\prime}$$ ${K}^{\prime}$ 
Abstract Let
be a configuration of$$\textbf{p}$$ $p$n points in for some$$\mathbb R^d$$ ${R}^{d}$n and some . Each pair of points defines an edge, which has a Euclidean length in the configuration. A path is an ordered sequence of the points, and a loop is a path that begins and ends at the same point. A path or loop, as a sequence of edges, also has a Euclidean length, which is simply the sum of its Euclidean edge lengths. We are interested in reconstructing$$d \ge 2$$ $d\ge 2$ given a set of edge, path and loop lengths. In particular, we consider the unlabeled setting where the lengths are given simply as a set of real numbers, and are not labeled with the combinatorial data describing which paths or loops gave rise to these lengths. In this paper, we study the question of when$$\textbf{p}$$ $p$ will be uniquely determined (up to an unknowable Euclidean transform) from some given set of path or loop lengths through an exhaustive trilateration process. Such a process has already been used for the simpler problem of reconstruction using unlabeled edge lengths. This paper also provides a complete proof that this process must work in that edgesetting when given a sufficiently rich set of edge measurements and assuming that$$\textbf{p}$$ $p$ is generic.$$\textbf{p}$$ $p$ 
Abstract Harmonic Hilbert spaces on locally compact abelian groups are reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces (RKHSs) of continuous functions constructed by Fourier transform of weighted
spaces on the dual group. It is known that for suitably chosen subadditive weights, every such space is a Banach algebra with respect to pointwise multiplication of functions. In this paper, we study RKHSs associated with subconvolutive functions on the dual group. Sufficient conditions are established for these spaces to be symmetric Banach$$L^2$$ ${L}^{2}$ algebras with respect to pointwise multiplication and complex conjugation of functions (here referred to as RKHAs). In addition, we study aspects of the spectra and state spaces of RKHAs. Sufficient conditions are established for an RKHA on a compact abelian group$$^*$$ ${}^{\ast}$G to have the same spectrum as the algebra of continuous functions on$$C^*$$ ${C}^{\ast}$G . We also consider oneparameter families of RKHSs associated with semigroups of selfadjoint Markov operators on , and show that in this setting subconvolutivity is a necessary and sufficient condition for these spaces to have RKHA structure. Finally, we establish embedding relationships between RKHAs and a class of Fourier–Wermer algebras that includes spaces of dominating mixed smoothness used in highdimensional function approximation.$$L^2(G)$$ ${L}^{2}\left(G\right)$ 
Abstract Consider two halfspaces
and$$H_1^+$$ ${H}_{1}^{+}$ in$$H_2^+$$ ${H}_{2}^{+}$ whose bounding hyperplanes$${\mathbb {R}}^{d+1}$$ ${R}^{d+1}$ and$$H_1$$ ${H}_{1}$ are orthogonal and pass through the origin. The intersection$$H_2$$ ${H}_{2}$ is a spherical convex subset of the$${\mathbb {S}}_{2,+}^d:={\mathbb {S}}^d\cap H_1^+\cap H_2^+$$ ${S}_{2,+}^{d}:={S}^{d}\cap {H}_{1}^{+}\cap {H}_{2}^{+}$d dimensional unit sphere , which contains a great subsphere of dimension$${\mathbb {S}}^d$$ ${S}^{d}$ and is called a spherical wedge. Choose$$d2$$ $d2$n independent random points uniformly at random on and consider the expected facet number of the spherical convex hull of these points. It is shown that, up to terms of lower order, this expectation grows like a constant multiple of$${\mathbb {S}}_{2,+}^d$$ ${S}_{2,+}^{d}$ . A similar behaviour is obtained for the expected facet number of a homogeneous Poisson point process on$$\log n$$ $logn$ . The result is compared to the corresponding behaviour of classical Euclidean random polytopes and of spherical random polytopes on a halfsphere.$${\mathbb {S}}_{2,+}^d$$ ${S}_{2,+}^{d}$
