    Marten, F; Tsaneva-Atanasova, Krasimira; Giuggioli, L (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2012)

  • Badly approximable affine forms and Schmidt games 

    Tseng, J (Elsevier for Academic Press, 2009-08-08)
    For any real number θ, the set of all real numbers x for which there exists a constant c(x) > 0 such that infp∈Z |θq − x − p| ≥ c(x) |q| for all q ∈ Z\{0} is an 1/8-winning set.

    Einsiedler, M; Tseng, J (De Gruyter, 2011-06-16)
    A badly approximable system of affine forms is determined by a matrix and a vector. We show Kleinbock's conjecture for badly approximable systems of affine forms: for any fixed vector, the set of badly approximable systems ...
