We construct the rank-one, singular (point-like) perturbations of the d-dimensional fractional Laplacian in the physically meaningful norm-resolvent limit of fractional Schrödinger operators with regular potentials centred around the perturbation point and shrinking to a delta-like shape. We analyse both possible regimes, the resonance-driven and the resonance-independent limit, depending on the power of the fractional Laplacian and the spatial dimension. To this aim, we also qualify the notion of zero-energy resonance for Schrödinger operators formed by a fractional Laplacian and a regular potential.

The model depends on a parameter and the asymptotic distribution of the eigenvalues undergoes a transition for a special value of the parameter, where it develops a corner-type singularity. In the double scaling limit near the transition we determine the asymptotic behaviour of the orthogonal polynomials in terms of a solution of the Painlev´e IV equation. We determine the Fredholm determinant associated to such solution and we compute it numerically on the real line, showing also that the corresponding Painlev´e transcendent is pole-free on a semiaxis.

Mimicking peristalsis in bio-inspired robots has attracted considerable attention in the literature. It has recently been observed that maximal velocity in a metameric earthworm-like robot is achieved by actuating the segments using a “phase coordination” principle. This paper shows that, in fact, peristalsis (which requires not only phase coordination, but also that all segments oscillate at same frequency and amplitude) emerges from optimization principles. More precisely, basing our analysis on the assumption of small deformations, we show that peristaltic waves provide the optimal actuation solution in the ideal case of a periodic infinite system, and that this is approximately true, modulo edge effects, for the real, finite length system. Therefore, this paper confirms the effectiveness of mimicking peristalsis in bio-inspired robots, at least in the small-deformation regime. Further research will be required to test the effectiveness of this strategy if large deformations are allowed.

We study the periodic boundary value problem associated with the second order nonlinear equation u''+(λa+(t)−μa−(t))g(u)=0, where g(u) has superlinear growth at zero and sublinear growth at infinity. For λ,μ positive and large, we prove the existence of 3^m−1 positive T-periodic solutions when the weight function a(t) has m positive humps separated by m negative ones (in a T-periodicity interval). As a byproduct of our approach we also provide abundance of positive subharmonic solutions and symbolic dynamics. The proof is based on coincidence degree theory for locally compact operators on open unbounded sets and also applies to Neumann and Dirichlet boundary conditions. Finally, we deal with radially symmetric positive solutions for the Neumann and the Dirichlet problems associated with elliptic PDEs.

The proof, which applies to a larger class of indefinite equations, combines coincidence degree theory (yielding a positive harmonic solution) with the Poincaré–Birkhoff fixed point theorem (giving subharmonic solutions oscillating around it).

Reduced Order Model (ROM) can be employed whenever fast simulations are required, or in general, whenever a trade-off between computational cost and solution accuracy is a preeminent issue as in process optimization and control. In this work, the efforts have been put to develop a ROM for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) application based on Finite Volume approximation, starting from the results available in turbulent Reynold-Averaged Navier Stokes simulations in order to enlarge the application field of Proper Orthogonal Decomposition – Reduced Order Model (POD – ROM) technique to more industrial fields. The approach is tested in the classic benchmark of the numerical simulation of the 2D lid-driven cavity. In particular, two simulations at Re = 103 and Re = 105 have been considered in order to assess both a laminar and turbulent case. Some quantities have been compared with the Full Order Model in order to assess the performance of the proposed ROM procedure i.e., the kinetic energy of the system and the reconstructed quantities of interest (velocity, pressure and turbulent viscosity). In addition, for the laminar case, the comparison between the ROM steady-state solution and the data available in literature has been presented. The results have turned out to be very satisfactory both for the accuracy and the computational times. As a major outcome, the approach turns out not to be affected by the energy blow up issue characterizing the results obtained by classic turbulent POD-Galerkin methods.1 aLorenzi, Stefano1 aCammi, Antonio1 aLuzzi, Lelio1 aRozza, Gianluigi uhttps://www.math.sissa.it/publication/pod-galerkin-method-finite-volume-approximation-navier-stokes-and-rans-equations01502nas a2200121 4500008004100000245010500041210007100146260001000217520097200227100002401199700002101223856013601244 2016 en d00aPOD–Galerkin monolithic reduced order models for parametrized fluid-structure interaction problems0 aPOD–Galerkin monolithic reduced order models for parametrized fl bWiley3 aIn this paper we propose a monolithic approach for reduced order modelling of parametrized fluid-structure interaction problems based on a proper orthogonal decomposition (POD)–Galerkin method. Parameters of the problem are related to constitutive properties of the fluid or structural problem, or to geometrical parameters related to the domain configuration at the initial time. We provide a detailed description of the parametrized formulation of the multiphysics problem in its components, together with some insights on how to obtain an offline-online efficient computational procedure through the approximation of parametrized nonlinear tensors. Then, we present the monolithic POD–Galerkin method for the online computation of the global structural displacement, fluid velocity and pressure of the coupled problem. Finally, we show some numerical results to highlight the capabilities of the proposed reduced order method and its computational performances1 aBallarin, Francesco1 aRozza, Gianluigi uhttps://www.math.sissa.it/publication/pod%E2%80%93galerkin-monolithic-reduced-order-models-parametrized-fluid-structure-interaction01116nas a2200109 4500008004100000245007800041210006900119520071700188100002900905700002100934856005100955 2016 en d00aOn point interactions realised as Ter-Martirosyan-Skornyakov Hamiltonians0 apoint interactions realised as TerMartirosyanSkornyakov Hamilton3 aFor quantum systems of zero-range interaction we discuss the mathematical scheme within which modelling the two-body interaction by means of the physically relevant ultra-violet asymptotics known as the ``Ter-Martirosyan--Skornyakov condition'' gives rise to a self-adjoint realisation of the corresponding Hamiltonian. This is done within the self-adjoint extension scheme of Krein, Visik, and Birman. We show that the Ter-Martirosyan--Skornyakov asymptotics is a condition of self-adjointness only when is imposed in suitable functional spaces, and not just as a point-wise asymptotics, and we discuss the consequences of this fact on a model of two identical fermions and a third particle of different nature.1 aMichelangeli, Alessandro1 aOttolini, Andrea uhttp://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/3519502865nas a2200121 4500008004100000245007000041210006900111260001000180520240500190653002302595100002302618856010202641 2016 en d00aPositive solutions to indefinite problems: a topological approach0 aPositive solutions to indefinite problems a topological approach bSISSA3 aThe present Ph.D. thesis is devoted to the study of positive solutions to indefinite problems. In particular, we deal with the second order nonlinear differential equation u'' + a(t) g(u) = 0, where g : [0,+∞[→[0,+∞[ is a continuous nonlinearity and a : [0,T]→R is a Lebesgue integrable sign-changing weight. We analyze the Dirichlet, Neumann and periodic boundary value problems on [0,T] associated with the equation and we provide existence, nonexistence and multiplicity results for positive solutions. In the first part of the manuscript, we investigate nonlinearities g(u) with a superlinear growth at zero and at infinity (including the classical superlinear case g(u)=u^p, with p>1). In particular, we prove that there exist 2^m-1 positive solutions when a(t) has m positive humps separated by negative ones and the negative part of a(t) is sufficiently large. Then, for the Dirichlet problem, we solve a conjecture by Gómez‐Reñasco and López‐Gómez (JDE, 2000) and, for the periodic problem, we give a complete answer to a question raised by Butler (JDE, 1976). In the second part, we study the super-sublinear case (i.e. g(u) is superlinear at zero and sublinear at infinity). If a(t) has m positive humps separated by negative ones, we obtain the existence of 3^m-1 positive solutions of the boundary value problems associated with the parameter-dependent equation u'' + λ a(t) g(u) = 0, when both λ>0 and the negative part of a(t) are sufficiently large. We propose a new approach based on topological degree theory for locally compact operators on open possibly unbounded sets, which applies for Dirichlet, Neumann and periodic boundary conditions. As a byproduct of our method, we obtain infinitely many subharmonic solutions and globally defined positive solutions with complex behavior, and we deal with chaotic dynamics. Moreover, we study positive radially symmetric solutions to the Dirichlet and Neumann problems associated with elliptic PDEs on annular domains. Furthermore, this innovative technique has the potential and the generality needed to deal with indefinite problems with more general differential operators. Indeed, our approach apply also for the non-Hamiltonian equation u'' + cu' + a(t) g(u) = 0. Meanwhile, more general operators in the one-dimensional case and problems involving PDEs will be subjects of future investigations.10apositive solutions1 aFeltrin, Guglielmo uhttps://www.math.sissa.it/publication/positive-solutions-indefinite-problems-topological-approach00453nas a2200133 4500008004100000022001400041245008800055210006900143300001500212490000700227100001900234700001300253856005300266 2015 eng d a1751-811300aThe partition function of the extended $r$-reduced Kadomtsev-Petviashvili hierarchy0 apartition function of the extended rreduced KadomtsevPetviashvil a195205, 200 v481 aBertola, Marco1 aYang, Di uhttp://dx.doi.org/10.1088/1751-8113/48/19/19520500827nas a2200193 4500008004100000022001400041245005300055210005100108300001200159490000800171520026300179653002100442653001500463653002000478653002400498100002200522700001800544856007100562 2015 eng d a0362-546X00aA permanence theorem for local dynamical systems0 apermanence theorem for local dynamical systems a73 - 810 v1213 aWe provide a necessary and sufficient condition for permanence related to a local dynamical system on a suitable topological space.

To cope with this problem, we have developed a novel method for the systematic in silico investigation of synergistic effects of currently available drugs on genome-scale metabolic networks. The algorithm finds the optimal combination of drugs which guarantees the inhibition of an objective function, while minimizing the side effect on the overall network. Results: Two different applications are considered: finding drug synergisms for human metabolic diseases (like diabetes, obesity and hypertension) and finding antitumoral drug combinations with minimal side effect on the normal human metabolism.The results we obtain are consistent with some of the available therapeutic indications and predict some new multiple drug treatments.A cluster analysis on all possible interactions among the currently available drugs indicates a limited variety on the metabolic targets for the approved drugs. Conclusion: The in silico prediction of drug synergism can represent an important tool for the repurposing of drug in a realistic perspective which considers also the selectivty of the therapy. Moreover, for a more profitable exploitation of drug-drug interactions, also drugs which show a too low efficacy but which have a non-common mechanism of action, can be reconsider as potential ingredients of new multicompound therapeutic indications.Needless to say the clues provided by a computational study like ours need in any case to be thoroughly evaluated experimentally.1 aFacchetti, Giuseppe1 aAltafini, Claudio1 aZampieri, Mattia uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/651500295nas a2200097 4500008004100000245004400041210004100085100001700126700001900143856003500162 2011 eng d00aA planar bi-Lipschitz extension Theorem0 aplanar biLipschitz extension Theorem1 aDaneri, Sara1 aPratelli, Aldo uhttp://arxiv.org/abs/1110.612400420nas a2200109 4500008004300000245009100043210006900134260003400203653001700237100002000254856003600274 2011 en_Ud 00aPlanar loops with prescribed curvature: existence, multiplicity and uniqueness results0 aPlanar loops with prescribed curvature existence multiplicity an bAmerican Mathematical Society10aPlane curves1 aMusina, Roberta uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/384200961nas a2200121 4500008004300000245005200043210005100095260001300146520059700159100002200756700002500778856003600803 2011 en_Ud 00aPoincaré covariance and κ-Minkowski spacetime0 aPoincaré covariance and κMinkowski spacetime bElsevier3 aA fully Poincaré covariant model is constructed out of the k-Minkowski spacetime.

We discuss some general properties of this moduli space by studying it in the framework of Huybrechts-Lehn theory of framed modules. We classify the fixed points under a toric action on the moduli space, and use this to compute the Poincare polynomial of the latter. This will imply that the moduli spaces we are considering are irreducible. We also consider fractional first Chern classes, which means that we are extending our computation to a stacky deformation of a Hirzebruch surface. From the physical viewpoint, our results provide the partition function of N=4 Vafa-Witten theory on total spaces of line bundles on P1, which is relevant in black hole entropy counting problems according to a conjecture due to Ooguri, Strominger and Vafa.

I show that the case of half-integer $\mu$ is integrable and that the solutions are of two types: the so-called Picard solutions and the so-called Chazy solutions. I give explicit formulae for them and completely determine their asymptotic behaviour near the singular points $0,1,\infty$ and their nonlinear monodromy. I study the structure of analytic continuation of the solutions to the PVI$\mu$ equation for any $\mu$ such that $2\mu\in\mathbb{Z}$. As an application, I classify all the algebraic solutions. For $\mu$ half-integer, I show that they are in one to one correspondence with regular polygons or star-polygons in the plane. For $\mu$ integer, I show that all algebraic solutions belong to a one-parameter family of rational solutions.

Actually, Jacobi curves are curves in the Lagrange Grassmannians. Differential geometry of these curves provides basic feedback or gauge invariants for a wide class of smooth control systems and geometric structures. In the present paper we mainly discuss two principal invariants: the generalized Ricci curvature, which is an invariant of the parametrized curve in the Lagrange Grassmanian providing the curve with a natural projective structure, and a fundamental form, which is a 4-oder differential on the curve.1 aAgrachev, Andrei, A.1 aZelenko, Igor uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/382500382nas a2200109 4500008004300000020001800043245007200061210007000133260001300203100002000216856003600236 1999 en_Ud a0-387-98888-200aPainlevé transcendents in two-dimensional topological field theory0 aPainlevé transcendents in twodimensional topological field theor bSpringer1 aDubrovin, Boris uhttp://hdl.handle.net/1963/323800698nas a2200133 4500008004300000245010800043210006900151260001300220520022700233100002400460700002600484700001800510856003600528 1999 en_Ud 00aPerturbation of $\Delta u+u^{(N+2)/(N-2)}=0$, the scalar curvature problem in $R^N$, and related topics0 aPerturbation of Delta uu N2N2 0 the scalar curvature problem in bElsevier3 aSome nonlinear elliptic equations on $R^N$ which arise perturbing the problem with the critical Sobolev exponent are studied.
