ABSTRACT
Discusses how fractal trees can be obtained by symmetric binary branching. Alternatives in drawing Koch curves for the canopy and the set of branch tips; Angles for marking topological discontinuities called the critical points; Distinctions of the structures of self-avoiding and self-contacting trees with their canopies and shortest paths.

    We derive an equation to determine the coordinates of the points at which unstable periodic orbits emerge from a zero-velocity contour in an arbitrary rotationally symmetric potential. Examples of such orbits are given for several model potentials.

This result is an extension of an earlier theorem, which required...

    In this paper we provide an axiomatization of the Shapley value for TU-games using a fairness property. This property states that if to a game we add another game in which two players are symmetric then their payoffs change by the same amount. We show that the Shapley value is characterized by...

    Abstract. Symmetric net structure yields symmetric net behaviour. Thus, knowing the symmetries of a net, redundant calculations can be skipped. We present a framework for the calculation of symmetries for several net classes including place/transition nets, timed nets, stochastic nets,...
