    We study the first homology group H-1(F,C) of the Milnor fiber F of sharp arrangements (A) over bar in P-R(2). Our work relies on the minimal complex C-*(S(A)) of the deconing arrangement A and its boundary map. We describe an algorithm which computes possible eigenvalues of the monodromy operator h(1) of H-1(F, C). We prove that, if a condition on some intersection points of lines in A is satisfied, then the only possible nontrivial eigenvalues of h(1) are cubic roots of the unity. Moreover we give sufficient conditions for just eigenvalues of order 3 or 4 to appear in cases in which this condition is not satisfied. (C) 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    The paper presents a new framework to assess firm level heterogeneity and to study the rate and direction of technical change. Building on the analysis of revealed short-run production functions by Hildenbrand (), we propose the (normalized) volume of the zonotope composed by vectors-firms as indicator of inter-firm heterogeneity. Moreover, the angles that the zonotope's main diagonal form with the axes provide a measure of the rates and directions of productivity change. The proposed framework also accounts for n-inputs and m-outputs and, crucially, the measures of heterogeneity and technical change do not require many of the standard assumptions from production theory.

    In this paper we give a very natural description of the bijections between
    the minimal CW-complex homotopy equivalent to the complement of a supersolvable
    arrangement $\mathcal{A}$, the $\textbf{nbc}$ basis of the Orlik-Solomon
    algebra associated to $\mathcal{A}$ and the set of chambers of $\mathcal{A}$.
    We use these bijections to get results on the first (co)homology group of the
    Milnor fiber of $\mathcal{A}$ and to describe a bijection between the symmetric
    group and the $\textbf{nbc}$ basis of the braid arrangement.

  • Social choice among complex objects
    Luigi Marengo, Simona Settepanella
    ANNALI DELLA SCUOLA NORMALE SUPERIORE DI PISA-CLASSE DI SCIENZE 13 (4) 1039 - 1064 0391-173X 2014 [Refereed][Not invited]
     
    We present a geometric model of social choice when the latter takes place among bundles of interdependent elements, that we will call objects. We show that the outcome of the social choice process is highly dependent on the way these bundles are formed. By bundling and unbundling the same set of constituent elements an authority enjoys a vast power of determining the social outcome. We provide necessary and sufficient conditions under which a social outcome may be a local or global optimum for a set of objects, and we show that, by appropriately redefining the set of objects, intransitive cycles may be broken and the median voter may be turned into a loser.

    Suppose R is the complement of an essential arrangement of toric hyperlanes in the complex torus (C*)(n) and pi = pi(1)(R). We show that H* (R; A) vanishes except in the top degree n when A is one of the following systems of local coefficients: (a) a system of nonresonant coefficients in a complex line bundle, (b) the von Neumann algebra N pi, or (c) the group ring Z pi. In case (a) the dimension of H-n is vertical bar e(R)vertical bar where e(R) denotes the Euler characteristic, and in case (b) the nth l(2) Betti number is also vertical bar e(R)vertical bar.

    Marengo and Settepanella (2010) have developed a geometric model of social choice when it takes place among bundles of interdependent elements, showing that by bundling and unbundling the same set of constituent elements an authority has the power of determining the social outcome. In this article, we will tie the model above to tournament theory, solving some of the mathematical problems arising in their work and opening new questions which are interesting from both a mathematical and social choice point of view. In particular, we will introduce the notion of u-local optima and study it from both a theoretical and a numerically probabilistic point of view; we will also describe an algorithm that computes the universal basin of attraction of a social outcome in O(M(3) log M) time (where M is the number of social outcomes).

    A toric arrangement is a finite set of hypersurfaces in a complex torus, every hypersurface being the kernel of a character. In the present paper, we build a CW-complex homotopy equivalent to the arrangement complement, with a combinatorial description similar to that of the well-known Salvetti complex. If the toric arrangement is defined by a Weyl group, we also provide an algebraic description, very handy for cohomology computations. In the last part, we give a description in terms of tableaux for a toric arrangement appearing in robotics. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

    Polar orderings arose in recent work of Salvetti and the second author on minimal CW-complexes for complexified hyperplane arrangements. We study the combinatorics of these orderings in the classical framework of oriented matroids, and reach thereby a weakening of the conditions required to actually determine such orderings. A class of arrangements for which the construction of the minimal complex is particularly easy, called recursively orderable arrangements, can therefore be combinatorially defined. We initiate the study of this class, giving a complete characterization in dimension 2 and proving that every supersolvable complexified arrangement is recursively orderable. (C) 2009 Elsevier Inc.

    Consider the ring R := Q vertical bar tau. tau(-1)vertical bar of Laurent polynomials in the variable tau. The Artin's Pure Braid Groups (or Generalized Pure Braid Groups) act over R. where the action of every standard generator is the multiplication by tau. In this paper we consider the cohomology of these groups with coefficients in the module R (it is well known that such cohomology is strictly related to the untwisted integral cohomology, of the Milnor fibration naturally associated to the reflection arrangement). We compute this cohomology for the cases I(2)(m). H(3), H(4), F(4) and An with 1 <= n <= 7. (c) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
  • On the Cohomology with local coefficients of Pure Braid Groups

    The need to calculate local system cohomolgy of the complement of an hyper plane arrangement arises in various contexts. Nevertheless until now very few it's known on the direct computation of such cohomology. In this paper the author describes all generators of the first homology group of braid arrangement giving also a complete description of its first characteristic variety, fulfilling results obtained by D.Cohenand A.Suciuin [7]. Moreover she gives also a complete description of the first characteristic variety in the case of the generalized braid arrangement coming from the dihedral group.

    Using combinatorial Morse theory on the CW-complex S constructed in Salvetti [15] which gives the homotopy type of the complement to a complexified real arrangement of hyperplanes, we find an explicit combinatorial gradient vector field on S, such that S contracts over a minimal CW-complex. The existence of such minimal complex was proved before Dimca and Padadima [5] and Randell [14] and there exists also some description of it by Yoshinaga [19]. Our description seems much more explicit and allows to find also an algebraic complex computing local system cohomology, where the boundary operator is effectively computable.

    Consider the ring R := Q[tau, tau(-1)] of Laurent polynomials in the variable tau. The Artin's pure braid groups (or generalized pure braid groups) act over R, where the action of every standard generator is the multiplication by tau. In this paper we consider the cohomology of such groups with coefficients in the module R (it is well known that such cohomology is strictly related to the untwisted integral cohomology of the Milnor fibration naturally associated to the reflection arrangement). We give a sort of stability theorem for the cohomologies of the infinite series A, B and D, finding that these cohomologies stabilize, with respect to the natural inclusion, at some number of copies of the trivial R-module Q. We also give a formula which computes this number of copies. (C) 2003 Elsevier B.V. All fights reserved.
