Korn's inequality plays an important role in linear elasticity theory. This inequality bounds the norm of the derivatives of the displacement vector by the norm of the linearized strain tensor. The kernel of the linearized strain tensor are the infinitesimal rigid-body translations and rotations (Killing vectors). We generalize this inequality by replacing the linearized strain tensor by its trace free part. That is, we obtain a stronger inequality in which the kernel of the relevant operator are the conformal Killing vectors. The new inequality has applications in General Relativity.

    We derive the multi-parameter Cramér-Rao inequality using only multivariate calculus, and an elementary property of partitioned positive-definite matrices. The derivation is straightforward and brief, and assumes only the commutativity of a vector derivative and a multiple integral. Thus, the...

    Existing fractional-order Perona-Malik Diffusion (FOPMD) algorithms are defined as fully spatial fractional-order derivatives (FSFODs). However, we argue that FSFOD is not the best way for diffusion since different parts of spatial derivative play different roles in Perona-Malik diffusion (PMD)...
