Tamás Mészáros - Freie Universität Berlin
Given a set $S$ of $v\geq 2$ symbols, and integers $k \geq t \geq 2$ and $N \geq 1$,  an $N \times k$ array $A \in S^{N \times k}$ is an $(N; t, k, v)$-covering array if all sequences in $S^t$ appear...

Jim Isenberg - University of Oregon
The Hawking-Penrose theorems tell us that solutions of Einstein’s equations are generally singular, in the sense of the incompleteness of causal geodesics (the paths of physical observers). These...
