Generalized mechanics, branes and n-Lie algebras

n-Lie algebra, where n ≥ 2, is a generalization of the notion of Lie algebra. An integer n indicates the number of elements of algebra necessary to form a Lie bracket. Thus, a Lie bracket of n-Lie algebra g is an n-ary multilinear mapping g×g×…×g (n times) → g, which is skew-symmetric and satisfies the […]

Studying uncertainty for robot localization with multiple sensors using Monte Carlo Localization

Mobile robots have gained a lot of attention in the last years with a lot of applications in various fields. The robot’s ability to navigate its environment of operation is critical in fulfilling its mission. One of the key tasks in robot navigation is the self-localization which is simply determining the position of the robot […]

Differential Geometry, Topology of Manifolds, Triple Systems and Physics

Differential geometry and topology of manifolds represent one of the currently most active areas in mathematics, honored by a number of Fields Medals in the recent past to mention only the names of Donaldson, Witten, Jones, Kontsevich and Perelman. The recent vitality of these areas is largely due to interactions with theoretical physics that have […]
