Abstract arXiv:2010.09793 ) that on uniformly rectifiable sets the Green function is almost affine in the weak sense, and moreover, in some scenarios such Green function estimates are equivalent to the uniform rectifiability of a set. The present paper tackles a strong analogue of these results, starting with the “flagship degenerate operators on sets with lower dimensional boundaries. We consider the elliptic operators associated to a domain$$L_{\beta ,\gamma } = {\text {div}}D^{d+1+\gamma n} \nabla $$ ${L}_{\beta ,\gamma}=\text{div}{D}^{d+1+\gamma n}\nabla $ with a uniformly rectifiable boundary$$\Omega \subset {\mathbb {R}}^n$$ $\Omega \subset {R}^{n}$ of dimension$$\Gamma $$ $\Gamma $ , the now usual distance to the boundary$$d < n1$$ $d<n1$ given by$$D = D_\beta $$ $D={D}_{\beta}$ for$$D_\beta (X)^{\beta } = \int _{\Gamma } Xy^{d\beta } d\sigma (y)$$ ${D}_{\beta}{\left(X\right)}^{\beta}={\int}_{\Gamma}{Xy}^{d\beta}d\sigma \left(y\right)$ , where$$X \in \Omega $$ $X\in \Omega $ and$$\beta >0$$ $\beta >0$ . In this paper we show that the Green function$$\gamma \in (1,1)$$ $\gamma \in (1,1)$G for , with pole at infinity, is well approximated by multiples of$$L_{\beta ,\gamma }$$ ${L}_{\beta ,\gamma}$ , in the sense that the function$$D^{1\gamma }$$ ${D}^{1\gamma}$ satisfies a Carleson measure estimate on$$\big  D\nabla \big (\ln \big ( \frac{G}{D^{1\gamma }} \big )\big )\big ^2$$ $D\nabla (ln(\frac{G}{{D}^{1\gamma}})){}^{2}$ . We underline that the strong and the weak results are different in nature and, of course, at the level of the proofs: the latter extensively used compactness arguments, while the present paper relies on some intricate integration by parts and the properties of the “magical distance function from David et al. (Duke Math J, to appear).$$\Omega $$ $\Omega $ 
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 In this paper, we study multistage stochastic mixedinteger nonlinear programs (MSMINLP). This general class of problems encompasses, as important special cases, multistage stochastic convex optimization with
nonLipschitzian value functions and multistage stochastic mixedinteger linear optimization. We develop stochastic dual dynamic programming (SDDP) type algorithms with nested decomposition, deterministic sampling, and stochastic sampling. The key ingredient is a new type of cuts based on generalized conjugacy. Several interesting classes of MSMINLP are identified, where the new algorithms are guaranteed to obtain the global optimum without the assumption of complete recourse. This significantly generalizes the classic SDDP algorithms. We also characterize the iteration complexity of the proposed algorithms. In particular, for a stage stochastic MINLP satisfying$$(T+1)$$ $(T+1)$L exact Lipschitz regularization withd dimensional state spaces, to obtain an optimal root node solution, we prove that the number of iterations of the proposed deterministic sampling algorithm is upper bounded by$$\varepsilon $$ $\epsilon $ , and is lower bounded by$${\mathcal {O}}((\frac{2LT}{\varepsilon })^d)$$ $O\left({\left(\frac{2LT}{\epsilon}\right)}^{d}\right)$ for the general case or by$${\mathcal {O}}((\frac{LT}{4\varepsilon })^d)$$ $O\left({\left(\frac{\mathrm{LT}}{4\epsilon}\right)}^{d}\right)$ for the convex case. This shows that the obtained complexity bounds are rather sharp. It also reveals that the iteration complexity depends$${\mathcal {O}}((\frac{LT}{8\varepsilon })^{d/21})$$ $O\left({\left(\frac{\mathrm{LT}}{8\epsilon}\right)}^{d/21}\right)$polynomially on the number of stages. We further show that the iteration complexity dependslinearly onT , if all the state spaces are finite sets, or if we seek a optimal solution when the state spaces are infinite sets, i.e. allowing the optimality gap to scale with$$(T\varepsilon )$$ $\left(T\epsilon \right)$T . To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work that reports global optimization algorithms as well as iteration complexity results for solving such a large class of multistage stochastic programs. The iteration complexity study resolves a conjecture by the late Prof. Shabbir Ahmed in the general setting of multistage stochastic mixedinteger optimization. 
Abstract We propose a new observable for the measurement of the forward–backward asymmetry
in Drell–Yan lepton production. At hadron colliders, the$$(A_{FB})$$ $\left({A}_{\mathrm{FB}}\right)$ distribution is sensitive to both the electroweak (EW) fundamental parameter$$A_{FB}$$ ${A}_{\mathrm{FB}}$ , the weak mixing angle, and the parton distribution functions (PDFs). Hence, the determination of$$\sin ^{2} \theta _{W}$$ ${sin}^{2}{\theta}_{W}$ and the updating of PDFs by directly using the same$$\sin ^{2} \theta _{W}$$ ${sin}^{2}{\theta}_{W}$ spectrum are strongly correlated. This correlation would introduce large bias or uncertainty into both precise measurements of EW and PDF sectors. In this article, we show that the sensitivity of$$A_{FB}$$ ${A}_{\mathrm{FB}}$ on$$A_{FB}$$ ${A}_{\mathrm{FB}}$ is dominated by its average value around the$$\sin ^{2} \theta _{W}$$ ${sin}^{2}{\theta}_{W}$Z pole region, while the shape (or gradient) of the spectrum is insensitive to$$A_{FB}$$ ${A}_{\mathrm{FB}}$ and contains important information on the PDF modeling. Accordingly, a new observable related to the gradient of the spectrum is introduced, and demonstrated to be able to significantly reduce the potential bias on the determination of$$\sin ^{2} \theta _{W}$$ ${sin}^{2}{\theta}_{W}$ when updating the PDFs using the same$$\sin ^{2} \theta _{W}$$ ${sin}^{2}{\theta}_{W}$ data.$$A_{FB}$$ ${A}_{\mathrm{FB}}$ 
Abstract This paper presents a search for dark matter,
, using events with a single top quark and an energetic$$\chi $$ $\chi $W boson. The analysis is based on proton–proton collision data collected with the ATLAS experiment at 13 TeV during LHC Run 2 (2015–2018), corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 139 fb$$\sqrt{s}=$$ $\sqrt{s}=$ . The search considers final states with zero or one charged lepton (electron or muon), at least one$$^{1}$$ ${}^{1}$b jet and large missing transverse momentum. In addition, a result from a previous search considering twochargedlepton final states is included in the interpretation of the results. The data are found to be in good agreement with the Standard Model predictions and the results are interpreted in terms of 95% confidencelevel exclusion limits in the context of a class of dark matter models involving an extended twoHiggsdoublet sector together with a pseudoscalar mediator particle. The search is particularly sensitive to onshell production of the charged Higgs boson state, , arising from the twoHiggsdoublet mixing, and its semiinvisible decays via the mediator particle,$$H^{\pm }$$ ${H}^{\pm}$a : . Signal models with$$H^{\pm } \rightarrow W^\pm a (\rightarrow \chi \chi )$$ ${H}^{\pm}\to {W}^{\pm}a(\to \chi \chi )$ masses up to 1.5 TeV and$$H^{\pm }$$ ${H}^{\pm}$a masses up to 350 GeV are excluded assuming a value of 1. For masses of$$\tan \beta $$ $tan\beta $a of 150 (250) GeV, values up to 2 are excluded for$$\tan \beta $$ $tan\beta $ masses between 200 (400) GeV and 1.5 TeV. Signals with$$H^{\pm }$$ ${H}^{\pm}$ values between 20 and 30 are excluded for$$\tan \beta $$ $tan\beta $ masses between 500 and 800 GeV.$$H^{\pm }$$ ${H}^{\pm}$
