### Metric 1-current decomposition

I've been reading Paolini-Stepanov arcticle and in section 4, at page 6, they define a metric current from a transport:
$$T_{\eta}(\omega)=\int_{\Theta}[[\theta]](\omega)d\eta(\theta),$$
which ...

### Approximate a Lipschitz function by an affine function [on hold]

Suppose $\mathcal{F}$ is a Lipschitz function (Lipschitz constant $L$) space defined on $A$. $A$ is a bounded subset of $\mathbb{R^n}$. The $\mathcal{G}$ is an affine function space defined on $A$. ...

### Is a polytope with vertices on a sphere and all edges of same length already rigid?

Let's say $P\subset\Bbb R^d$ is some convex polytope with the following two properties:
all vertices are on a common sphere.
all edges are of the same length.
I suspect that such a polytope is ...

### Which cubic graphs can be orthogonally embedded in $\mathbb R^3$?

By an orthogonal embedding of a finite simple graph I mean an embedding in $\mathbb R^3$ such that each edge is parallel to one of the three axis. To avoid trivialities, let's require that (the ...

### An isoperimetric inequality for curve in the plane?

Let $f(x,y)=0$ be a (smooth) simple closed curve $C$ on the plane and $R$ the region bounded by $C$ (appropriately oriented). Assume the origin lies in the interior of $R$.
QUESTION. Let $r=\sqrt{x^...

### Estimation of the Gromov–Wasserstein distance of spheres

Let $(X,d_X,\mu_X)$ and $(Y,d_Y,\mu_Y)$ be two metric measure spaces. A probability measure $\mu$ over $X\times Y$ is called a coupling if $(\pi_1)_\sharp \mu=\mu_X$ and $(\pi_2)_\sharp \mu=\mu_Y$. We ...
