ABSTRACT
The article examines the significant relationship between the mathematics and dance. It explores the mathematical ideas involved in each dance tradition including symmetry, geometry of the moving body and the topology of links between dancers. Moreover, it also discusses the use of mathematics in dealing with the choreographic issues.

    We prove that for each partition of the Lobachevsky plane into finitely many Borel pieces one of the cells of the partition contains an unbounded centrally symmetric subset.

    Recently, some researchers investigated the topology identification for complex networks via LaSalle’s invariance principle. The principle cannot be directly applied to time-varying systems since the positive limit sets are generally not invariant. In this paper, we study the topology...

    The Lie jet Lλ of a field of geometric objects λ on a smooth manifold M with respect to a field θ of Weil A-velocities is a generalization of the Lie derivative Lλ of a field λ with respect to a vector field v. In this paper, Lie jets Lλ are applied to the study of A-smooth...

    In the present note we have considered Mn to be a Riemannian manifold admitting a semi-symmetric recurrent metric connection. The aim of the present paper is to obtain the conditions under which the quasi-conformal curvature tensor and M-projective curvature tensor of semi-symmetric recurrent...

    In this note we show finite-time blowup of radially symmetric solutions to the quasilinear parabolic-parabolic two-dimensional Keller-Segel system for any positive mass. We prove this result by slightly adapting M. Winkler's method, which he introduced in (Winkler in J. Math. Pures Appl., , )...

    We provide necessary and sufficient conditions for a bi-Darboux theorem on triplectic manifolds. Here, triplectic manifolds are manifolds equipped with two compatible, jointly non-degenerate Poisson brackets with mutually involutive Casimirs, and with ranks equal to 2/3 of the manifold...

    We study conformally flat Lorentzian three-manifolds which are either semi-symmetric or pseudo-symmetric. Their complete classification is obtained under hypotheses of local homogeneity and curvature homogeneity. Moreover, examples which are not curvature homogeneous are described.

    We study a quantum version of the SU(2) Hopf fibration $${S^7 \to S^4}$$ and its associated twistor geometry. Our quantum sphere $${S^7_q}$$ arises as the unit sphere inside a q-deformed quaternion space $${\mathbb{H}^2_q}$$ . The resulting four-sphere $${S^4_q}$$ is a quantum analogue of the...
