### Asymptotically discrete ultrafilters

Definition 1. A ultrafilter $\mathcal U$ on $\omega$ is called discrete (resp. nowhere dense) if for any injective map $f:\omega\to \mathbb R$ there is a set $U\in\mathcal U$ whose image $f(U)$ is a ...

### Bishop-Gromov inequality strengthened for anisotropic metrics?

The Bishop-Gromov inequality provides an upper-bound on the rate of growth of volume of a ball of radius $r$ in spaces that have a lower-bound on the Ricci curvature, $Ric \geq (n-1)K$.
(I am ...

### Polygons such that $n^2 $ times magnification of a polygon could be covered by exactly $n^2$ original polygon

While studying about covering problems in combinatorics, I got to a simple question:
What polygons can be covered exactly, without any area that is covered twice or area that is outside the covered ...

### Uniform versus non-uniform group stability

Group stability considers the question of whether "almost"-homomorphisms are "close to" true homomorphisms. Here, "almost" and "close to" are made rigorous using a group metric.
More precisely, ...

### Metric 1-current decomposition

I've been reading Paolini-Stepanov arcticle and in section 4, at page 6, they define a metric current from a transport:
$$T_{\eta}(\omega)=\int_{\Theta}[[\theta]](\omega)d\eta(\theta),$$
which ...

### Is a polytope with vertices on a sphere and all edges of same length already rigid?

Let's say $P\subset\Bbb R^d$ is some convex polytope with the following two properties:
all vertices are on a common sphere.
all edges are of the same length.
I suspect that such a polytope is ...
