We prove local in time well-posedness for a large class of quasilinear Hamiltonian, or parity preserving, Schrödinger equations on the circle. After a paralinearization of the equation, we perform several paradifferential changes of coordinates in order to transform the system into a paradifferential one with symbols which, at the positive order, are constant and purely imaginary. This allows to obtain a priori energy estimates on the Sobolev norms of the solutions.

To achieve this goal, we study the perturbative path integral quantization for 2D Yang–Mills theory on surfaces with boundaries and corners in the Batalin–Vilkovisky formalism (or, more precisely, in its adaptation to the setting with boundaries, compatible with gluing and cutting–-the BV-BFV formalism). We prove that cutting a surface (e.g. a closed one) into simple enough pieces–-building blocks–-and choosing a convenient gauge-fixing on the pieces, and assembling back the partition function on the surface, one recovers the known non-perturbative answers for 2D Yang–Mills theory.

In this work we proved that, in the case of one point interaction in $\mathbb{R}^3$, the perturbed Laplacian satisfies the same $L^p$−$L^q$ estimates of the free Laplacian in the smaller regime $q \in [2,3)$. These estimates are implied by a recent result concerning the Lpboundedness of the wave operators for the perturbed Laplacian. Our approach, however, is more direct and relatively simple, and could potentially be useful to prove optimal weighted estimates also in the regime $q \geq 3$.

This is especially useful to perform a sensitivity analysis of the haemodynamics for different flow conditions occurring in native coronary arteries and bypass grafts, the investigation of the progression of the coronary artery disease and the choice of the most appropriate surgical procedure. A complete pipeline, from the acquisition of patientspecific medical images to fast parametrized computational simulations, is proposed. Complex surgical configurations employed in the clinical practice, such as Y-grafts and sequential grafts, are studied. A virtual surgery platform based on model reduction of unsteady Navier Stokes equations for blood dynamics is proposed to carry out sensitivity analyses in a very rapid and reliable way. A specialized geometrical parametrization is employed to compare the effect of stenosis and anastomosis variation on the outcome of the surgery in several relevant cases.1 aBallarin, Francesco1 aFaggiano, Elena1 aManzoni, Andrea1 aRozza, Gianluigi1 aQuarteroni, Alfio1 aIppolito, Sonia1 aScrofani, Roberto1 aAntona, Carlo uhttp://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/3524001905nas a2200157 4500008004100000245012000041210006900161260002200230300000800252490000700260520128900267100002101556700002201577700002101599856012701620 2016 en d00aReduced basis method and domain decomposition for elliptic problems in networks and complex parametrized geometries0 aReduced basis method and domain decomposition for elliptic probl bElsevierc01/2016 a4300 v713 aThe aim of this work is to solve parametrized partial differential equations in computational domains represented by networks of repetitive geometries by combining reduced basis and domain decomposition techniques. The main idea behind this approach is to compute once, locally and for few reference shapes, some representative finite element solutions for different values of the parameters and with a set of different suitable boundary conditions on the boundaries: these functions will represent the basis of a reduced space where the global solution is sought for. The continuity of the latter is assured by a classical domain decomposition approach. Test results on Poisson problem show the flexibility of the proposed method in which accuracy and computational time may be tuned by varying the number of reduced basis functions employed, or the set of boundary conditions used for defining locally the basis functions. The proposed approach simplifies the pre-computation of the reduced basis space by splitting the global problem into smaller local subproblems. Thanks to this feature, it allows dealing with arbitrarily complex network and features more flexibility than a classical global reduced basis approximation where the topology of the geometry is fixed.1 aIapichino, Laura1 aQuarteroni, Alfio1 aRozza, Gianluigi uhttps://www.math.sissa.it/publication/reduced-basis-method-and-domain-decomposition-elliptic-problems-networks-and-complex01820nas a2200169 4500008004100000245015600041210006900197520118400266100002401450700002001474700002001494700002001514700002201534700002101556700002201577856005101599 2015 en d00aFast simulations of patient-specific haemodynamics of coronary artery bypass grafts based on a POD-Galerkin method and a vascular shape parametrization0 aFast simulations of patientspecific haemodynamics of coronary ar3 aIn this work a reduced-order computational framework for the study of haemodynamics in three-dimensional patient-specific configurations of coronary artery bypass grafts dealing with a wide range of scenarios is proposed. We combine several efficient algorithms to face at the same time both the geometrical complexity involved in the description of the vascular network and the huge computational cost entailed by time dependent patient-specific flow simulations. Medical imaging procedures allow to reconstruct patient-specific configurations from clinical data. A centerlines-based parametrization is proposed to efficiently handle geometrical variations. POD–Galerkin reduced-order models are employed to cut down large computational costs. This computational framework allows to characterize blood flows for different physical and geometrical variations relevant in the clinical practice, such as stenosis factors and anastomosis variations, in a rapid and reliable way.

The transcriptome profiling revealed that the pool of genes up-regulated by GabT, besides being strongly related to the regulation of growth and synaptic transmission, is also endowed with neuro-protective and pro-survival properties. By using RT-PCR, we quantified a time-course of the transient expression for 33 of the highest up-regulated genes, with an average sampling rate of 10 minutes and covering the time interval [10:90] minutes. The cluster analysis of the time-course disclosed the existence of three different dynamical patterns, one of which proved, in a statistical analysis based on results from previous works, to be significantly related with SRF-dependent regulation (p-value<0.05). The chromatin immunoprecipitation (chip) assay confirmed the rich presence of working CArG boxes in the genes belonging to the latter dynamical pattern and therefore validated the statistical analysis. Furthermore, an in silico analysis of the promoters revealed the presence of additional conserved CArG boxes upstream of the genes Nr4a1 and Rgs2. The chip assay confirmed a significant SRF signal in the Nr4a1 CArG box but not in the Rgs2 CArG box.1 aIacono, Giovanni1 aAltafini, Claudio1 aTorre, Vincent uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/728700902nas a2200121 4500008004100000245005300041210005200094260004800146520050700194100002100701700002200722856003600744 2013 en d00aFracture models as Gamma-limits of damage models0 aFracture models as Gammalimits of damage models bAmerican Institute of Mathematical Sciences3 aWe analyze the asymptotic behavior of a variational model for damaged elastic materials.

If, as we have recently shown, the signed social networks currently available have a limited amount of true disorder (or frustration), it is also interesting to investigate how this frustration is organized, by exploring the landscape of near-optimal structural balance. What we obtain in this paper is that while one of the networks analyzed shows a unique valley of minima, and a funneled landscape that gradually and smoothly worsens as we move away from the optimum, another network shows instead several distinct valleys of optimal or near-optimal structural balance, separated by energy barriers determined by internally balanced subcommunities of users, a phenomenon similar to the replica-symmetry breaking of spin glasses. Multiple, essentially isoenergetic, arrangements of these communities are possible. Passing from one valley to another requires one to destroy the internal arrangement of these balanced subcommunities and then to reform it again. It is essentially this process of breaking the internal balance of the subcommunities which gives rise to the energy barriers.1 aFacchetti, Giuseppe1 aIacono, Giovanni1 aAltafini, Claudio uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/650401286nas a2200145 4500008004100000245007900041210006900120260003300189520078400222653003101006100002401037700002101061700002201082856003601104 2011 en d00aComputing global structural balance in large-scale signed social networks.0 aComputing global structural balance in largescale signed social bNational Academy of Sciences3 aStructural balance theory affirms that signed social networks (i.e., graphs whose signed edges represent friendly/hostile interactions among individuals) tend to be organized so as to avoid conflictual situations, corresponding to cycles of negative parity.

A possible interpretation of this result is in terms of energetic cost of an interaction: an erroneous or contradictory transcriptional action costs much more than a signaling/metabolic error, and therefore must be avoided as much as possible. Averaging over all possible perturbations, however, we also find that unlike for transcriptional networks, in the signaling/metabolic networks the probability of finding the system in its least frustrated configuration tends to be high also in correspondence of a moderate energetic regime, meaning that, in spite of the higher frustration, these networks can achieve a globally ordered response to perturbations even for moderate values of the strength of the interactions. Furthermore, an analysis of the energy landscape shows that signaling and metabolic networks lack energetic barriers around their global optima, a property also favouring global order.\\nConclusion. \\nIn conclusion, transcriptional and signaling/metabolic networks appear to have systematic differences in both the index of frustration and the transition to global order. These differences are interpretable in terms of the different functions of the various classes of networks.1 aIacono, Giovanni1 aAltafini, Claudio uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/405500369nas a2200085 4500008004100000245006200041210006200103100002200165856009600187 2010 eng d00aNew approximation results for free discontinuity problems0 aNew approximation results for free discontinuity problems1 aIurlano, Flaviana uhttps://www.math.sissa.it/publication/new-approximation-results-free-discontinuity-problems00857nas a2200133 4500008004100000245010700041210007200148300001200220490000700232520040100239100002000640700001700660856004600677 2009 eng d00aSolutions of the Schrödinger–Poisson problem concentrating on spheres, part I: necessary conditions0 aSolutions of the Schrödinger–Poisson problem concentrating on sp a707-7200 v193 aIn this paper we study a coupled nonlinear Schrödinger–Poisson problem with radial functions. This system has been introduced as a model describing standing waves for the nonlinear Schrödinger equations in the presence of the electrostatic field. We provide necessary conditions for concentration on sphere for the solutions of this kind of problem extending the results already known.
