We obtain improved fractional Poincaré inequalities in John domains of a metric space (X,d) endowed with a doubling measure μ under some mild regularity conditions on the measure μ. We also give sufficient conditions on a bounded domain to support fractional Poincaré type inequalities in this setting.
We continue the study in  in the setting of weighted pluripotential theory arising from polynomials associated to a convex body P in (R+)d. Our goal is to establish a large deviation principle in this setting specifying the rate function in terms of P-pluripotential-theoretic notions. As an important preliminary step, we first give an existence proof for the solution of a Monge–Ampère equation in an appropriate finite energy class. This is achieved using a variational approach.
We study Legendrian embeddings of a compact Legendrian submanifold L sitting in a closed contact manifold (M,ξ) whose contact structure is supported by a (contact) open book OB on M. We prove that if OB has Weinstein pages, then there exist a contact structure ξ′ on M, isotopic to ξ and supported by OB, and a contactomorphism f:(M,ξ)→(M,ξ′) such that the image f(L) of any such submanifold can be Legendrian isotoped so that it becomes disjoint from the closure of a page of OB.
Let Λ be a numerical semigroup, C⊆An the monomial curve singularity associated to Λ, and T its tangent cone. In this paper we provide a sharp upper bound for the least positive integer in Λ in terms of the codimension and the maximum degree of the equations of T, when T is not a complete intersection. A special case of this result settles a question of J. Herzog and D. Stamate.
A method of constructing Cohomological Field Theories (CohFTs) with unit using minimal classes on the moduli spaces of curves is developed. As a simple consequence, CohFTs with unit are found which take values outside of the tautological cohomology of the moduli spaces of curves. A study of minimal classes in low genus is presented in the Appendix by D. Petersen.
