Mathematical modeling and quantitative study of biological motility (in particular, of motility at microscopic scales) is producing new biophysical insight and is offering opportunities for new discoveries at the level of both fundamental science and technology. These range from the explanation of how complex behavior at the level of a single organism emerges from body architecture, to the understanding of collective phenomena in groups of organisms and tissues, and of how these forms of swarm intelligence can be controlled and harnessed in engineering applications, to the elucidation of processes of fundamental biological relevance at the cellular and sub-cellular level. In this paper, some of the most exciting new developments in the fields of locomotion of unicellular organisms, of soft adhesive locomotion across scales, of the study of pore translocation properties of knotted DNA, of the development of synthetic active solid sheets, of the mechanics of the unjamming transition in dense cell collectives, of the mechanics of cell sheet folding in volvocalean algae, and of the self-propulsion of topological defects in active matter are discussed. For each of these topics, we provide a brief state of the art, an example of recent achievements, and some directions for future research.

Examples of the ROM application, in the naval field, can be found in [31, 24]. Mandatory ingredient for the ROM methods is the relation between the high-fidelity solutions and the parameters. Dealing with geometrical parameters, especially in the industrial context, this relation may be unknown and not trivial (simulations over hand morphed geometries) or very complex (high number of parameters or many nested morphing techniques). To overcome these scenarios, we propose in this contribution an efficient and complete data-driven framework involving ROM techniques for shape design and optimization, extending the pipeline presented in [7]. By applying the singular value decomposition (SVD) to the points coordinates defining the hull geometry –- assuming the topology is inaltered by the deformation –-, we are able to compute the optimal space which the deformed geometries belong to, hence using the modal coefficients as the new parameters we can reconstruct the parametric formulation of the domain. Finally the output of interest is approximated using the proper orthogonal decomposition with interpolation technique. To conclude, we apply this framework to a naval shape design problem where the bulbous bow is morphed to reduce the total resistance of the ship advancing in calm water.

The main idea of this work is to operate on a multidisciplinary level to identify propeller shapes that lead to reduced tip vortex-induced pressure and increased efficiency without altering the thrust. First, a specific tool for the bottom-up construction of parameterized propeller blade geometries has been developed. The algorithm proposed operates with a user defined number of arbitrary shaped or NACA airfoil sections, and employs arbitrary degree NURBS to represent the chord, pitch, skew and rake distribution as a function of the blade radial coordinate. The control points of such curves have been modified to generate, in a fully automated way, a family of blade geometries depending on as many as 20 shape parameters. Such geometries have then been used to carry out potential flow simulations with the Boundary Element Method based software PROCAL. Given the high number of parameters considered, such a preliminary stage allowed for a fast evaluation of the performance of several hundreds of shapes. In addition, the data obtained from the potential flow simulation allowed for the application of a parameter space reduction methodology based on active subspaces (AS) property, which suggested that the main propeller performance indices are, at a first but rather accurate approximation, only depending on a single parameter which is a linear combination of all the original geometric ones. AS analysis has also been used to carry out a constrained optimization exploiting response surface method in the reduced parameter space, and a sensitivity analysis based on such surrogate model. The few selected shapes were finally used to set up high fidelity RANS simulations and select an optimal shape.

In the dilute regime, when the interaction potentials have the length scale of order O(N−1), we show that the leading order of the ground state energy is captured correctly by the Gross–Pitaevskii energy functional and that the many-body ground state fully condensates on the Gross–Pitaevskii minimizers. In the mean-field regime, when the interaction length scale is O(1), we are able to verify Bogoliubov’s approximation and obtain the second order expansion of the ground state energy. While such asymptotic results have several precursors in the literature on one-component condensates, the adaptation to the multi-component setting is non-trivial in various respects and the analysis will be presented in detail.

As a consequence we deduce a stability result on the associated Cauchy problem in Sobolev spaces. By the identification between first order operators and vector fields this problem can be formulated as the problem of finding a change of coordinates which conjugates a weakly perturbed constant vector field on Tν+d to a constant diophantine flow. For this purpose we generalize Moser's straightening theorem: considering smooth perturbations we prove that the corresponding straightening torus diffeomorphism is smooth, under the assumption that the perturbation is small only in some given Sobolev norm and that the initial frequency belongs to some Cantor-like set. In view of applications in KAM theory for PDEs we provide also tame estimates on the change of variables.

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.

Labrosse %XThe introduction of computational models in cardiovascular sciences has been progressively bringing new and unique tools for the investigation of the physiopathology. Together with the dramatic improvement of imaging and measuring devices on one side, and of computational architectures on the other one, mathematical and numerical models have provided a new, clearly noninvasive, approach for understanding not only basic mechanisms but also patient-specific conditions, and for supporting the design and the development of new therapeutic options. The terminology in silico is, nowadays, commonly accepted for indicating this new source of knowledge added to traditional in vitro and in vivo investigations. The advantages of in silico methodologies are basically the low cost in terms of infrastructures and facilities, the reduced invasiveness and, in general, the intrinsic predictive capabilities based on the use of mathematical models. The disadvantages are generally identified in the distance between the real cases and their virtual counterpart required by the conceptual modeling that can be detrimental for the reliability of numerical simulations.

The physical problem considered is the one of the simulation of the hydrodynamic flow past the hull of a ship advancing in calm water. Such problem is extremely relevant at the preliminary stages of the ship design, when several flow simulations are typically carried out by the engineers to assess the dependence of the hull total resistance on the geometrical parameters of the hull, and others related with flows and hull properties. Given the high number of geometric and physical parameters which might affect the total ship drag, the main idea of this work is to employ the active subspaces properties to identify possible lower dimensional structures in the parameter space. Thus, a fully automated procedure has been implemented to produce several small shape perturbations of an original hull CAD geometry, in order to exploit the resulting shapes to run high fidelity flow simulations with different structural and physical parameters as well, and then collect data for the active subspaces analysis. The free form deformation procedure used to morph the hull shapes, the high fidelity solver based on potential flow theory with fully nonlinear free surface treatment, and the active subspaces analysis tool employed in this work have all been developed and integrated within SISSA mathLab as open source tools. The contribution will also discuss several details of the implementation of such tools, as well as the results of their application to the selected target engineering problem.

In spinor condensates, which represent one of the recent frontiers in the manipulation of ultra-cold atoms, particles interact with a two-body spatial interaction and a spin–spin interaction. The effective dynamics is well-known to be governed by a system of coupled semi-linear Schrödinger equations: we recover this system, in the sense of marginals in the limit of infinitely many particles, with a mean-field re-scaling of the many-body Hamiltonian. When the resulting control of the dynamical persistence of condensation is quantified with the parameters of modern observations, we obtain a bound that remains quite accurate for the whole typical duration of the experiment.

Several parametric deformations of an initial hull shape are considered to assess the influence of the shape parameters considered on the hull total drag. The hull resistance is typically computed by means of numerical simulations of the hydrodynamic flow past the ship. Given the high number of parameters involved - which might result in a high number of time consuming hydrodynamic simulations - assessing whether the parameters space can be reduced would lead to considerable computational cost reduction. Thus, the main idea of this work is to employ the active subspaces to identify possible lower dimensional structures in the parameter space, or to verify the parameter distribution in the position of the control points. To this end, a fully automated procedure has been implemented to produce several small shape perturbations of an original hull CAD geometry which are then used to carry out high-fidelity flow simulations and collect data for the active subspaces analysis. To achieve full automation of the open source pipeline described, both the free form deformation methodology employed for the hull perturbations and the solver based on unsteady potential flow theory, with fully nonlinear free surface treatment, are directly interfaced with CAD data structures and operate using IGES vendor-neutral file formats as input files. The computational cost of the fluid dynamic simulations is further reduced through the application of dynamic mode decomposition to reconstruct the steady state total drag value given only few initial snapshots of the simulation. The active subspaces analysis is here applied to the geometry of the DTMB-5415 naval combatant hull, which is which is a common benchmark in ship hydrodynamics simulations. %B The 28th International Ocean and Polar Engineering Conference %I International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers %C Sapporo, Japan %G eng %U https://www.onepetro.org/conference-paper/ISOPE-I-18-481 %0 Journal Article %J Journal of Mathematical Physics %D 2018 %T Fractional powers and singular perturbations of quantum differential Hamiltonians %A Alessandro Michelangeli %A Andrea Ottolini %A Raffaele Scandone %XWe consider the fractional powers of singular (point-like) perturbations of the Laplacian and the singular perturbations of fractional powers of the Laplacian, and we compare two such constructions focusing on their perturbative structure for resolvents and on the local singularity structure of their domains.

Under our assumptions, it is not possible to study the problem by means of usual arguments like resolvent techniques or Fourier integral operators, for example. We use a parabolic regularisation, and we solve the approximating Cauchy problem. This is achieved by obtaining suitable smoothing estimates for the dissipative evolution. The total mass and energy bounds allow to extend the solution globally in time. We then infer sufficient compactness properties in order to produce a global-in-time finite energy weak solution to our original problem.

These two problems are technically equivalent, albeit sometimes treated by their own in the the literature. Based on such scheme, we then recover the formula to determine the eigenvalues of each self-adjoint extension, which are corrections to the non-relativistic hydrogenoid energy levels.We discuss in which respect the Kreĭn-Višik-Birman scheme is somehow more natural in yielding the typical boundary condition of self-adjointness at the centre of the perturbation and in identifying the eigenvalues of each extension. %G en %U http://preprints.sissa.it/handle/1963/35321 %1 35631 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %$ Submitted by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2018-08-27T06:42:30Z No. of bitstreams: 1 GM-hydrogenoid-2018-SISSA-Preprint.pdf: 480482 bytes, checksum: 228ebe556a2688a43dcbbd1edeeaa5c4 (MD5) %0 Report %D 2018 %T On Krylov solutions to infinite-dimensional inverse linear problems %A Noe Caruso %A Alessandro Michelangeli %A Paolo Novati %X We discuss, in the context of inverse linear problems in Hilbert space, the notion of the associated infinite-dimensional Krylov subspace and we produce necessary and sufficient conditions for the Krylov-solvability of the considered inverse problem.

Finally, we present some examples that show the sharpness of these results and counterexamples to related questions, namely regularity in the kinetic formulation and a property of the fractional BV spaces.

The latter is a singular, self-adjoint perturbation of the free Laplacian, modelling a contact interaction at a fixed point. The resulting non-linear equation is the typical effective equation for the dynamics of condensed Bose gases with fixed point-like impurities. We control the local solution theory in the perturbed Sobolev spaces of fractional order between the mass space and the operator domain.

This includes the set-up of a consistent notation for inverse problems that are genuinely infinite-dimensional, the analysis of the finite-dimensional truncations, a discussion of the mechanisms why the error or the residual generically fail to vanish in norm, and the identification of practically plausible sufficient conditions for such indicators to be small in some weaker sense.

In this work a Reduced Order Model (ROM) of the incompressible flow around a circular cylinder, built performing a Galerkin projection of the governing equations onto a lower dimensional space is presented. The reduced basis space is generated using a Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD) approach. In particular the focus is into (i) the correct reproduction of the pressure field, that in case of the vortex shedding phenomenon, is of primary importance for the calculation of the drag and lift coefficients; (ii) for this purpose the projection of the Governing equations (momentum equation and Poisson equation for pressure) is performed onto different reduced basis space for velocity and pressure, respectively; (iii) all the relevant modifications necessary to adapt standard finite element POD-Galerkin methods to a finite volume framework are presented. The accuracy of the reduced order model is assessed against full order results.

For the latter, Sommerfeld’s celebrated fine structure formula provides the well-known expression for the eigenvalues in the gap of the continuum spectrum. Exploiting our recent general classification of all other self-adjoint realisations, we generalise Sommerfeld’s formula so as to determine the discrete spectrum of all other self-adjoint versions of the Dirac-Coulomb Hamiltonian. Such discrete spectra display naturally a fibred structure, whose bundle covers the whole gap of the continuum spectrum. %G en %U http://preprints.sissa.it/handle/1963/35300 %1 35606 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %$ Submitted by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2017-11-06T14:27:38Z No. of bitstreams: 1 SISSA_preprint_44-2017-MATE.pdf: 1573857 bytes, checksum: 728e94322471701d89ed5741cda85d99 (MD5) %0 Book Section %B Advances in Quantum Mechanics: Contemporary Trends and Open Problems %D 2017 %T Dispersive Estimates for Schrödinger Operators with Point Interactions in ℝ3 %A Felice Iandoli %A Raffaele Scandone %E Alessandro Michelangeli %E Gianfausto Dell'Antonio %XThe study of dispersive properties of Schrödinger operators with point interactions is a fundamental tool for understanding the behavior of many body quantum systems interacting with very short range potential, whose dynamics can be approximated by non linear Schrödinger equations with singular interactions. 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 theory was recast in an abstract Hilbert space setting by Ern, Guermond and Caplain (2007), and by Antonić and Burazin (2010). In this work we make a further step, presenting a purely operator-theoretic description of abstract Friedrichs systems, and proving that any pair of abstract Friedrichs operators admits bijective extensions with a signed boundary map. Moreover, we provide suffcient and necessary conditions for existence of infinitely many such pairs of spaces, and by the universal operator extension theory (Grubb, 1968) we get a complete identification of all such pairs, which we illustrate on two concrete one-dimensional examples. %G en %U http://preprints.sissa.it/handle/1963/35280 %1 35587 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %$ Submitted by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2017-04-11T07:42:37Z No. of bitstreams: 1 SISSA_preprint_16-2017-MATE.pdf: 323262 bytes, checksum: 17892409d83085ec46707fac64056fc1 (MD5) %0 Journal Article %J Journal of Nonlinear Mathematical Physics %D 2017 %T Gross-Pitaevskii non-linear dynamics for pseudo-spinor condensates %A Alessandro Michelangeli %A Alessandro Olgiati %XWe derive the equations for the non-linear effective dynamics of a so called pseudo-spinor Bose-Einstein condensate, which emerges from the linear many-body Schrödinger equation at the leading order in the number of particles. The considered system is a three-dimensional diluted gas of identical bosons with spin, possibly confined in space, and coupled with an external time-dependent magnetic field; particles also interact among themselves through a short-scale repulsive interaction. The limit of infinitely many particles is monitored in the physically relevant Gross-Pitaevskii scaling. In our main theorem, if at time zero the system is in a phase of complete condensation (at the level of the reduced one-body marginal) and with energy per particle fixed by the Gross-Pitaevskii functional, then such conditions persist also at later times, with the one-body orbital of the condensate evolving according to a system of non-linear cubic Schrödinger equations coupled among themselves through linear (Rabi) terms. The proof relies on an adaptation to the spinor setting of Pickl’s projection counting method developed for the scalar case. Quantitative rates of convergence are available, but not made explicit because evidently non-optimal. In order to substantiate the formalism and the assumptions made in the main theorem, in an introductory section we review the mathematical formalisation of modern typical experiments with pseudo-spinor condensates.

Such a result holds for all the values of the depth parameter in a Borel set of asymptotically full measure. This is a small divisor problem. The main difficulties are the quasi-linear nature of the gravity water waves equations and the fact that the linear frequencies grow just in a sublinear way at infinity. We overcome these problems by first reducing the linearized operators obtained at each approximate quasi-periodic solution along the Nash-Moser iteration to constant coefficients up to smoothing operators, using pseudo-differential changes of variables that are quasi-periodic in time. Then we apply a KAM reducibility scheme which requires very weak Melnikov non-resonance conditions (losing derivatives both in time and space), which we are able to verify for most values of the depth parameter using degenerate KAM theory arguments. %G en %U http://preprints.sissa.it/handle/1963/35296 %1 35602 %2 Mathematics %$ Submitted by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2017-09-27T15:46:10Z No. of bitstreams: 1 1708.01517.pdf: 1909445 bytes, checksum: 71fc741593666cacf41187c00b092503 (MD5) %0 Journal Article %J Journal of Ship Research %D 2017 %T Wet and Dry Transom Stern Treatment for Unsteady and Nonlinear Potential Flow Model for Naval Hydrodynamics Simulations %A Andrea Mola %A Luca Heltai %A Antonio DeSimone %XWe present a model for the fast evaluation of the total drag of ship hulls operating in both wet and dry transom stern conditions, in calm or wavy water, based on the combination of an unsteady semi-Lagrangian potential flow formulation with fully nonlinear free-surface treatment, experimental correlations, and simplified viscous drag modeling. The implementation is entirely based on open source libraries. The spatial discretization is solved using a streamline upwind Petrov‐Galerkin stabilization of an iso-parametric, collocation based, boundary element method, implemented using the open source library deal.II. The resulting nonlinear differential-algebraic system is integrated in time using implicit backward differentiation formulas, implemented in the open source library SUNDIALS. The Open CASCADE library is used to interface the model directly with computer-aided design data structures. The model accounts automatically for hulls with a transom stern, both in wet and dry regimes, by using a specific treatment of the free-surface nodes on the stern edge that automatically detects when the hull advances at low speeds. In this case, the transom stern is partially immersed, and a pressure patch is applied on the water surface detaching from the transom stern, to recover the gravity effect of the recirculating water on the underlying irrotational flow domain. The parameters of the model used to impose the pressure patch are approximated from experimental relations found in the literature. The test cases considered are those of the U.S. Navy Combatant DTMB-5415 and the National Physical Laboratory hull. Comparisons with experimental data on quasi-steady test cases for both water elevation and total hull drag are presented and discussed. The quality of the results obtained on quasi-steady simulations suggests that this model can represent a promising alternative to current unsteady solvers for simulations with Froude numbers below 0.35.

Reduced order methods need to face increasingly complex problems in computational mechanics, especially into a multiphysics setting. Several issues should be faced: stability of the approximation, efficient treatment of nonlinearities, uniqueness or possible bifurcations of the state solutions, proper coupling between fields, as well as offline-online computing, computational savings and certification of errors as measure of accuracy. Moreover, efficient geometrical parametrization techniques should be devised to efficiently face shape optimization problems, as well as shape reconstruction and shape assimilation problems. A related aspect deals with the management of parametrized interfaces in multiphysics problems, such as fluid-structure interaction problems, and also a domain decomposition based approach for complex parametrized networks. We present some illustrative industrial and biomedical problems as examples of recent advances on methodological developments.

In the framework of linear elasticity, by fixing a suitable boundary condition for the strain (prescribed non-vanishing boundary integral), we manage to confine the dislocations inside the material. More precisely, in the presence of an external strain with circulation equal to n times the lattice spacing, it is energetically convenient to have n distinct dislocations lying inside the crystal. The novelty of introducing a Dirichlet boundary condition for the tangential strain is crucial to the confinement: it is well known that, if Neumann boundary conditions are imposed, the dislocations tend to migrate to the boundary. The results are achieved using PDE techniques and Ƭ-convergence theory, in the framework of the so-called core radius approach. %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/35247 %1 35558 %2 Mathematics %$ Submitted by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2016-10-20T11:44:46Z No. of bitstreams: 1 LMSZ-preprint.pdf: 547676 bytes, checksum: 5c7add921deefef560aac54da6a584cc (MD5) %0 Journal Article %J Annales Henri Poincaré %D 2016 %T Construction of Real-Valued Localized Composite Wannier Functions for Insulators %A Domenico Fiorenza %A Domenico Monaco %A Gianluca Panati %XWe consider a real periodic Schrödinger operator and a physically relevant family of $m \geq 1$ Bloch bands, separated by a gap from the rest of the spectrum, and we investigate the localization properties of the corresponding composite Wannier functions. To this aim, we show that in dimension $d\leq 3$, there exists a global frame consisting of smooth quasi-Bloch functions which are both periodic and time-reversal symmetric. Aiming to applications in computational physics, we provide a constructive algorithm to obtain such a Bloch frame. The construction yields the existence of a basis of composite Wannier functions which are real-valued and almost-exponentially localized. The proof of the main result exploits only the fundamental symmetries of the projector on the relevant bands, allowing applications, beyond the model specified above, to a broad range of gapped periodic quantum systems with a time-reversal symmetry of bosonic type.

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. %I Submitted %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/35240 %1 35545 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %# MAT/08 %$ Submitted by Gianluigi Rozza (grozza@sissa.it) on 2016-10-14T23:07:40Z No. of bitstreams: 1 BMMB_SISSA_report.pdf: 16374062 bytes, checksum: 7ee82fd9d989ed91bf9cc721ae2114a0 (MD5) %0 Report %D 2016 %T Large KAM tori for perturbations of the dNLS equation %A Massimiliano Berti %A Thomas Kappeler %A Riccardo Montalto %X We prove that small, semi-linear Hamiltonian perturbations of the defocusing nonlinear Schr\"odinger (dNLS) equation on the circle have an abundance of invariant tori of any size and (finite) dimension which support quasi-periodic solutions. When compared with previous results the novelty consists in considering perturbations which do not satisfy any symmetry condition (they may depend on x in an arbitrary way) and need not be analytic. The main difficulty is posed by pairs of almost resonant dNLS frequencies. The proof is based on the integrability of the dNLS equation, in particular the fact that the nonlinear part of the Birkhoff coordinates is one smoothing. We implement a Newton-Nash-Moser iteration scheme to construct the invariant tori. The key point is the reduction of linearized operators, coming up in the iteration scheme, to 2×2 block diagonal ones with constant coefficients together with sharp asymptotic estimates of their eigenvalues. %G en %U http://preprints.sissa.it/handle/1963/35284 %1 35589 %2 Mathematics %$ Submitted by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2017-05-30T09:09:35Z No. of bitstreams: 1 1603.09252.pdf: 1306610 bytes, checksum: 1e34137dcb21eb2e2a8e93d0c2d009a3 (MD5) %0 Journal Article %J COMPUTERS & MATHEMATICS WITH APPLICATIONS %D 2016 %T LinearOperator – a generic, high-level expression syntax for linear algebra %A Matthias Maier %A Mauro Bardelloni %A Luca Heltai %B COMPUTERS & MATHEMATICS WITH APPLICATIONS %V 72 %P 1–24 %G eng %R 10.1016/j.camwa.2016.04.024 %0 Report %D 2016 %T A model for the quasistatic growth of cracks with fractional dimension %A Gianni Dal Maso %A Marco Morandotti %X We study a variational model for the quasistatic growth of cracks with fractional dimension in brittle materials.

This result is a consequence of a detailed analysis of the structure of the characteristics. In particular the characteristic curves are segments outside a countably 1-rectifiable set and the left and right traces of the solution exist in a $C^0$-sense up to the degeneracy due to the segments where $f''=0$. We prove also that the initial data is taken in a suitably strong sense and we give some counterexamples which show that these results are sharp.

We investigate the existence of periodic and time-reversal invariant Bloch frames in dimensions 2 and 3. In 2d, the obstruction to the existence of such a frame is shown to be encoded in a $\mathbb{Z}_2$-valued topological invariant, which can be computed by a simple algorithm. We prove that the latter agrees with the Fu-Kane index. In 3d, instead, four $\mathbb{Z}_2$ invariants emerge from the construction, again related to the Fu-Kane-Mele indices. When no topological obstruction is present, we provide a constructive algorithm yielding explicitly a periodic and time-reversal invariant Bloch frame. The result is formulated in an abstract setting, so that it applies both to discrete models and to continuous ones.

In particular we study the unitary regime, i.e., the case of infinite two-body scattering length. The Hamiltonians describing the system are, by definition, self-adjoint extensions of the free Hamiltonian restricted on smooth functions vanishing at the two-body coincidence planes, i.e., where the positions of two interacting particles coincide. It is known that for $m$ larger than a critical value $m^* \simeq (13.607)^{-1}$ a self-adjoint and lower bounded Hamiltonian $H_0$ can be constructed, whose domain is characterized in terms of the standard point-interaction boundary condition at each coincidence plane. Here we prove that for $m\in(m^*,m^{**})$, where $m^{**}\simeq (8.62)^{-1}$, there is a further family of self-adjoint and lower bounded Hamiltonians $H_{0,\beta}$, $\beta \in \mathbb{R}$, describing the system. Using a quadratic form method, we give a rigorous construction of such Hamiltonians and we show that the elements of their domains satisfy a further boundary condition, characterizing the singular behavior when the positions of all the three particles coincide. %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/34469 %1 34644 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %$ Submitted by Alessandro Michelangeli (alemiche@sissa.it) on 2015-05-21T06:33:20Z No. of bitstreams: 1 SISSA_preprint_22-2015-MATE.pdf: 438261 bytes, checksum: ca05e5e2c5d78d87225a11073cb09d47 (MD5) %0 Journal Article %J Mathematical Methods in the Applied Sciences %D 2015 %T A compatible-incompatible decomposition of symmetric tensors in Lp with application to elasticity %A Maggiani, Giovanni Battista %A Riccardo Scala %A Nicolas Van Goethem %K 35J58 %K 35Q74 %K compatibility conditions %K elasticity %K Korn inequality %K strain decomposition %K subclass74B05 %XIn this paper, we prove the Saint-Venant compatibility conditions in $L^p$ for $p\in(1,∞)$, in a simply connected domain of any space dimension. As a consequence, alternative, simple, and direct proofs of some classical Korn inequalities in Lp are provided. We also use the Helmholtz decomposition in $L^p$ to show that every symmetric tensor in a smooth domain can be decomposed in a compatible part, which is the symmetric part of a displacement gradient, and in an incompatible part, which is the incompatibility of a certain divergence-free tensor. Moreover, under a suitable Dirichlet boundary condition, this Beltrami-type decomposition is proved to be unique. This decomposition result has several applications, one of which being in dislocation models, where the incompatibility part is related to the dislocation density and where $1 < p < 2$. This justifies the need to generalize and prove these rather classical results in the Hilbertian case ($p = 2$), to the full range $p\in(1,∞)$. Copyright © 2015 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

Bonaschi %A Patrick Van Meurs %A Marco Morandotti %X The gradient flow structure of the model introduced in [CG99] for the dynamics of screw dislocations is investigated by means of a generalised minimising-movements scheme approach. The assumption of a finite number of available glide directions, together with the "maximal dissipation criterion" that governs the equations of motion, results into solving a differential inclusion rather than an ODE. This paper addresses how the model in [CG99] is connected to a time-discrete evolution scheme which explicitly confines dislocations to move each time step along a single glide direction. It is proved that the time-continuous model in [CG99] is the limit of these time-discrete minimising-movement schemes when the time step converges to 0. The study presented here is a first step towards a generalization of the setting in [AGS08, Chap. 2 and 3] that allows for dissipations which cannot be described by a metric. %I SISSA %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/34495 %1 34692 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %$ Submitted by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2015-09-04T08:36:59Z No. of bitstreams: 1 BvMM_03_9_15-MM.pdf: 773084 bytes, checksum: 686749d206d2f9c676ab004b860799f4 (MD5) %0 Report %D 2015 %T Explicit formulas for relaxed disarrangement densities arising from structured deformations %A Ana Cristina Barroso %A Jose Matias %A Marco Morandotti %A David R. Owen %X Structured deformations provide a multiscale geometry that captures the contributions at the macrolevel of both smooth geometrical changes and non-smooth geometrical changes (disarrangements) at submacroscopic levels. For each (first-order) structured deformation (g,G) of a continuous body, the tensor field G is known to be a measure of deformations without disarrangements, and M:=∇g−G is known to be a measure of deformations due to disarrangements. The tensor fields G and M together deliver not only standard notions of plastic deformation, but M and its curl deliver the Burgers vector field associated with closed curves in the body and the dislocation density field used in describing geometrical changes in bodies with defects. Recently, Owen and Paroni [13] evaluated explicitly some relaxed energy densities arising in Choksi and Fonseca’s energetics of structured deformations [4] and thereby showed: (1) (trM)+ , the positive part of trM, is a volume density of disarrangements due to submacroscopic separations, (2) (trM)−, the negative part of trM, is a volume density of disarrangements due to submacroscopic switches and interpenetrations, and (3) trM, the absolute value of trM, is a volume density of all three of these non-tangential disarrangements: separations, switches, and interpenetrations. The main contribution of the present research is to show that a different approach to the energetics of structured deformations, that due to Ba\'{i}a, Matias, and Santos [1], confirms the roles of (trM)+, (trM)−, and trM established by Owen and Paroni. In doing so, we give an alternative, shorter proof of Owen and Paroni’s results, and we establish additional explicit formulas for other measures of disarrangements. %I SISSA %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/34492 %1 34687 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %$ Submitted by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2015-08-28T10:09:53Z No. of bitstreams: 1 SISSA_Preprint_37_2015_MATE.pdf: 315599 bytes, checksum: 2bd676c192205d3a2edd7c48bf53c11c (MD5) %0 Report %D 2015 %T Fast simulations of patient-specific haemodynamics of coronary artery bypass grafts based on a POD-Galerkin method and a vascular shape parametrization %A Francesco Ballarin %A Elena Faggiano %A Sonia Ippolito %A Andrea Manzoni %A Alfio Quarteroni %A Gianluigi Rozza %A Roberto Scrofani %X In 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.

Its application is straightforward when the problem at hand is solved using Galerkin methods. Applications of boundary integral formulations often resort to collocation techniques which are computationally more tractable. In this framework, the Galerkin method and the stabilisation may still be used to successfully apply boundary conditions and resolve instabilities that are frequently observed in transport dominated problems. We apply this technique to an adaptive collocation boundary element method for the solution of stationary potential flows, where we solve a mixed Poisson problem in boundary integral form, with the addition of linearised free surface boundary conditions. We use a mixed boundary element formulation to allow for different finite dimensional spaces describing the flow potential and its normal derivative, and we validate our method simulating the flow around both a submerged body and a surface piercing body. The coupling of mixed surface finite elements and strongly consistent stabilisation techniques with boundary elements opens up the possibility to use non conformal unstructured grids with local refinement, without introducing the inconsistencies of other stabilisation techniques based on up-winding and finite difference schemes.

They all focus on geometric phases in solid state physics. We first study topological phases of 2-dimensional periodic quantum systems, in absence of a spectral gap, like e.g. (multilayer) graphene. A topological invariant n_v in Z, baptized eigenspace vorticity, is attached to any intersection of the energy bands, and characterizes the local topology of the eigenprojectors around that intersection. With the help of explicit models, each associated to a value of n_v in Z, we are able to extract the decay at infinity of the single-band Wannier function w in mono- and bilayer graphene, obtaining |w(x)| <= const |x|^{-2} as |x| tends to infinity. Next, we investigate gapped periodic quantum systems, in presence of time-reversal symmetry. When the time-reversal operator Theta is of bosonic type, i.e. it satisfies Theta^2 = 1, we provide an explicit algorithm to construct a frame of smooth, periodic and time-reversal symmetric (quasi-)Bloch functions, or equivalently a frame of almost-exponentially localized, real-valued (composite) Wannier functions, in dimension d <= 3. In the case instead of a fermionic time-reversal operator, satisfying Theta^2 = -1, we show that the existence of such a Bloch frame is in general topologically obstructed in dimension d=2 and d=3. This obstruction is encoded in Z_2-valued topological invariants, which agree with the ones proposed in the solid state literature by Fu, Kane and Mele. %I SISSA %G en %1 34702 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %# MAT/07 %$ Submitted by Domenico Monaco (dmonaco@sissa.it) on 2015-09-13T00:09:51Z No. of bitstreams: 1 Monaco_PhDThesis.pdf: 1801696 bytes, checksum: 83cdd0dee2cc65cb246735d92f21c74a (MD5) %0 Report %D 2015 %T Global well-posedness of the magnetic Hartree equation with non-Strichartz external fields %A Alessandro Michelangeli %X We study the magnetic Hartree equation with external fields to which magnetic Strichartz estimates are not necessarily applicable.

Three are the main results which we collect in this work. The first and the second result (denoted in the thesis by Theorem A and Theorem B respectively) deal with the following problem. The most comprehensive result about existence, uniqueness and stability of the solution to the Cauchy problem \begin{equation}\tag{$\mathcal C$} \label{E:abstract} \begin{cases} u_t + F(u)_x = 0, \\u(0, x) = \bar u(x), \end{cases} \end{equation} where $F: \R^N \to \R^N$ is strictly hyperbolic, $u = u(t,x) \in \R^N$, $t \geq 0$, $x \in \R$, $\TV(\bar u) \ll 1$, can be found in [Bianchini, Bressan 2005], where the well-posedness of \eqref{E:abstract} is proved by means of vanishing viscosity approximations. After the paper [Bianchini, Bressan 2005], however, it seemed worthwhile to develop a \emph{purely hyperbolic} theory (based, as in the genuinely nonlinear case, on Glimm or wavefront tracking approximations, and not on vanishing viscosity parabolic approximations) to prove existence, uniqueness and stability results. The reason of this interest can be mainly found in the fact that hyperbolic approximate solutions are much easier to study and to visualize than parabolic ones. Theorems A and B in this thesis are a contribution to this line of research. In particular, Theorem A proves an estimate on the change of the speed of the wavefronts present in a Glimm approximate solution when two of them interact; Theorem B proves the convergence of the Glimm approximate solutions to the weak admissible solution of \eqref{E:abstract} and provides also an estimate on the rate of convergence. Both theorems are proved in the most general setting when no assumption on $F$ is made except the strict hyperbolicity. The third result of the thesis, denoted by Theorem C, deals with the Lagrangian structure of the solution to \eqref{E:abstract}. The notion of Lagrangian flow is a well-established concept in the theory of the transport equation and in the study of some particular system of conservation laws, like the Euler equation. However, as far as we know, the general system of conservations laws \eqref{E:abstract} has never been studied from a Lagrangian point of view. This is exactly the subject of Theorem C, where a Lagrangian representation for the solution to the system \eqref{E:abstract} is explicitly constructed. The main reasons which led us to look for a Lagrangian representation of the solution of \eqref{E:abstract} are two: on one side, this Lagrangian representation provides the continuous counterpart in the exact solution of \eqref{E:abstract} to the well established theory of wavefront approximations; on the other side, it can lead to a deeper understanding of the behavior of the solutions in the general setting, when the characteristic field are not genuinely nonlinear or linearly degenerate. %I SISSA %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/34542 %1 34739 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %# MAT/05 %$ Submitted by smodena@sissa.it (smodena@sissa.it) on 2015-09-22T13:24:32Z No. of bitstreams: 1 Modena_tesi_2015_09_22.pdf: 1531188 bytes, checksum: 814a6709a4fcbf8b10bc95a9e3d155c7 (MD5) %0 Thesis %D 2015 %T Normal matrix models and orthogonal polynomials for a class of potentials with discrete rotational symmetries %A Dario Merzi %K Mathematical Physics %X In this thesis we are going to study normal random matrix models which generalize naturally the polynomially perturbed Ginibre ensamble, focusing in particular on their eigenvalue distribution and on the asymptotics of the associated orthogonal polynomials. \\ The main result we are going to present are the following: \begin{itemize} \item we describe the explicit derivation of the equilibrium measure for a class of potentials with discrete rotational symmetries, namely of the form \[V(z)=|z|^{2n}-t(z^{d}+\bar{z}^{d})\qquad n,d\in\mathbb{N},\ \ d\leq2n\ \ t>0 .\] \item We obtain the strong asymptotics for the orthogonal polynomials associated to the weight \[ e^{-NV(z)},\quad V(z)=|z|^{2s}-t(z^s+\bar{z}^{s}) \qquad z \in \mathbb{C},\;s\in \mathbb{N},\quad t>0,\] and we will show how the density of their zeroes is related to the eigenvalue distribution of the corresponding matrix model; \item We show how the conformal maps used to describe the support of the equilibrium measure for polynomial perturbation of the potential $V(z)=|z|^{2n}$ lead to a natural generalization of the concept of polynomial curves introduced in by Elbau. \end{itemize} %I SISSA %G en %1 34938 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %# MAT/07 %$ Submitted by Dario Merzi (dmerzi@sissa.it) on 2015-10-24T00:25:34Z No. of bitstreams: 1 Tesi.pdf: 2303697 bytes, checksum: 620bce2fe472d72e2a7050687b21dc08 (MD5) %0 Journal Article %J Atti Accad.

We present a reduced basis method for such coupled problems. The reduced basis method is a model order reduction method applied in the context of parametrized systems. Our approach is based on a heterogeneous domain decomposition formulation, namely the Stokes-Darcy problem. Thanks to an offline/online-decomposition, computational times can be drastically reduced. At the same time the induced error can be bounded by fast evaluable a-posteriori error bounds. In the offline-phase the proposed algorithms make use of the decomposed problem structure. Rigorous a-posteriori error bounds are developed, indicating the accuracy of certain lifting operators used in the offline-phase as well as the accuracy of the reduced coupled system. Also, a strategy separately bounding pressure and velocity errors is extended. Numerical experiments dealing with groundwater flow scenarios demonstrate the efficiency of the approach as well as the limitations regarding a-posteriori error estimation.

For this model all spectral gaps at the centre of the Brillouin zone are known to vanish, although so far this noticeable property has only been proved through a very delicate analysis of the discriminant of the corresponding ODE and the associated monodromy matrix. We provide a new, alternative proof by showing that this model can be approximated, in the norm resolvent sense, by a model of regular periodic interactions with finite range for which all gaps at the centre of the Brillouin zone are still vanishing. In particular this shows that the vanishing gap property is stable in the sense that it is present also for the "physical" approximants and is not only a feature of the idealised model of zero-range interactions. %I SISSA %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/34460 %1 34629 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %$ Submitted by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2015-04-01T14:57:03Z No. of bitstreams: 1 SISSA_preprint_16-2015-MATE.pdf: 349807 bytes, checksum: f5e6dacd85fb41c96420795cc37cc12c (MD5) %0 Report %D 2015 %T Stability of the (2+2)-fermionic system with zero-range interaction %A Alessandro Michelangeli %A Paul Pfeiffer %X We introduce a 3D model, and we study its stability, consisting of two distinct pairs of identical fermions coupled with a two-body interaction between fermions of different species, whose effective range is essentially zero (a so called (2+2)-fermionic system with zero-range interaction). The interaction is modelled by implementing the the celebrated (and ubiquitous, in the literature of this field) Bethe-Peierls contact condition with given two-body scattering length within the Krein-Visik-Birman theory of extensions of semi-bounded symmetric operators, in order to make the Hamiltonian a well-defined (self-adjoint) physical observable.

-topology. A global minimality result in small tubular neighborhoods of the discontinuity set is also established.

We describe some applications of group- and bundle-theoretic methods in solid state physics, showing how symmetries lead to a proof of the localization of electrons in gapped crystalline solids, as e.g. insulators and semiconductors. We shortly review the Bloch-Floquet decomposition of periodic operators, and the related concepts of Bloch frames and composite Wannier functions. We show that the latter are almost-exponentially localized if and only if there exists a smooth periodic Bloch frame, and that the obstruction to the latter condition is the triviality of a Hermitian vector bundle, called the Bloch bundle. The rôle of additional Z_2-symmetries, as time-reversal and space-reflection symmetry, is discussed, showing how time-reversal symmetry implies the triviality of the Bloch bundle, both in the bosonic and in the fermionic case. Moreover, the same Z_2-symmetry allows to define a finer notion of isomorphism and, consequently, to define new topological invariants, which agree with the indices introduced by Fu, Kane and Mele in the context of topological insulators.

It consists of three spheres connected by two rods which change their lengths periodically in non-reciprocal fashion. Here we investigate a variant of this model in which one rod is periodically actuated while the other is replaced by an elastic spring. We show that the competition between the elastic restoring force and the hydrodynamic drag produces a delay in the response of the passive elastic arm with respect to the active one. This leads to non-reciprocal shape changes and self-propulsion. After formulating the equations of motion, we study their solutions qualitatively and numerically. The leading-order term of the solution is computed analytically. We then address questions of optimization with respect to both actuation frequency and swimmer's geometry.

I. negative eigenvalues and curvature prescription %A Rod R. Gover %A Yaiza Canzani %A Dmitry Jakobson %A Raphaël Ponge %A Andrea Malchiodi %X In this paper, we study conformal invariants that arise from nodal sets and negative eigenvalues of conformally covariant operators; more specifically, the Graham, Jenne, Mason, and Sparling (GJMS) operators, which include the Yamabe and Paneitz operators. We give several applications to curvature prescription problems. We establish a version in conformal geometry of Courant's Nodal Domain Theorem. We also show that on any manifold of dimension n≥3, there exist many metrics for which our invariants are nontrivial. We prove that the Yamabe operator can have an arbitrarily large number of negative eigenvalues on any manifold of dimension n≥3. We obtain similar results for some higher order GJMS operators on some Einstein and Heisenberg manifolds. We describe the invariants arising from the Yamabe and Paneitz operators associated to left-invariant metrics on Heisenberg manifolds. Finally, in Appendix, the second named author and Andrea Malchiodi study the Q-curvature prescription problems for noncritical Q-curvatures. %I Oxford University Press %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/35128 %1 35366 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %$ Submitted by gfeltrin@sissa.it (gfeltrin@sissa.it) on 2015-12-02T16:09:57Z No. of bitstreams: 1 preprint2014.pdf: 356671 bytes, checksum: 20e817f9f20d9c72d717e04f94f86bd9 (MD5) %R 10.1093/imrn/rns295 %0 Journal Article %D 2014 %T Critical points of the Moser-Trudinger functional on a disk %A Andrea Malchiodi %A Luca Martinazzi %X On the 2-dimensional unit disk $B_1$ we study the Moser-Trudinger functional $$E(u)=\int_{B_1}(e^{u^2}-1)dx, u\in H^1_0(B_1)$$ and its restrictions to $M_\Lambda:=\{u \in H^1_0(B_1):\|u\|^2_{H^1_0}=\Lambda\}$ for $\Lambda>0$. We prove that if a sequence $u_k$ of positive critical points of $E|_{M_{\Lambda_k}}$ (for some $\Lambda_k>0$) blows up as $k\to\infty$, then $\Lambda_k\to 4\pi$, and $u_k\to 0$ weakly in $H^1_0(B_1)$ and strongly in $C^1_{\loc}(\bar B_1\setminus\{0\})$. Using this we also prove that when $\Lambda$ is large enough, then $E|_{M_\Lambda}$ has no positive critical point, complementing previous existence results by Carleson-Chang, M.

A challenging problem is how to generate a mesh of such a surface that well approximates the geometry of the surface, preserves its topology and important geometric features, and contains nicely shaped elements. In this work, we present an optimization-based surface remeshing method that is able to satisfy many of these requirements simultaneously. This method is inspired by the recent work of Lévy and Bonneel (Proc. 21th International Meshing Roundtable, October 2012), which embeds a smooth surface into a high-dimensional space and remesh it uniformly in that embedding space. Our method works directly in the 3d spaces and uses an embedding space in R6 to evaluate mesh size and mesh quality. It generates a curvatureadapted anisotropic surface mesh that well represents the geometry of the surface with a low number of elements. We illustrate our approach through various examples.

We give evidence of the fact that if the limit dynamics exists and is induced by the Laplacian on the graph with certain self-adjoint boundary conditions, such conditions are determined by the possible presence of a zero energy resonance on the fat graph. Pictorially, one may say that in the shrinking limit the resonance acts as a bridge connecting the boundary values at the vertex along the different rays. %I SISSA %G en_US %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/7485 %1 7598 %$ Submitted by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2014-12-12T13:16:15Z No. of bitstreams: 1 sissa-preprint-69-2014-mate.pdf: 137454 bytes, checksum: 4d4571bd97df46ee020c81057ce78620 (MD5) %0 Report %D 2014 %T An efficient computational framework for reduced basis approximation and a posteriori error estimation of parametrized Navier-Stokes flows %A Andrea Manzoni %K Reduced Basis Method, parametrized Navier-Stokes equations, steady incompressible fluids, a posteriori error estimation, approximation stability %X We present the current Reduced Basis framework for the efficient numerical approximation of parametrized steady Navier-Stokes equations. We have extended the existing setting developed in the last decade (see e.g. [Deparis, Veroy & Patera, Quarteroni & Rozza] to more general affine and nonaffine parametrizations (such as volume-based techniques), to a simultaneous velocity-pressure error estimates and to a fully decoupled Offline/Online procedure in order to speedup the solution of the reduced-order problem. This is particularly suitable for real-time and many-query contexts, which are both part of our final goal. Furthermore, we present an efficient numerical implementation for treating nonlinear advection terms in a convenient way. A residual-based a posteriori error estimation with respect to a truth, full-order Finite Element approximation is provided for joint pressure/velocity errors, according to the Brezzi-Rappaz-Raviart stability theory. To do this, we take advantage of an extension of the Successive Constraint Method for the estimation of stability factors and of a suitable fixed-point algorithm for the approximation of Sobolev embedding constants. Finally, we present some numerical test cases, in order to show both the approximation properties and the computational efficiency of the derived framework. %G en %1 7291 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %# MAT/08 ANALISI NUMERICA %$ Submitted by Andrea Manzoni (amanzoni@sissa.it) on 2014-02-12T17:36:11Z No. of bitstreams: 1 AM_2014_M2AN_preprint.pdf: 5678588 bytes, checksum: 9589729cb84fffc5229b4b071e5e69fb (MD5) %0 Journal Article %J Annales de l'Institut Henri Poincare (C) Non Linear Analysis %D 2014 %T Existence of immersed spheres minimizing curvature functionals in non-compact 3-manifolds %A Andrea Mondino %A Johannes Schygulla %K Direct methods in the calculus of variations %K General Relativity %K Geometric measure theory %K second fundamental form %K Willmore functional %XWe study curvature functionals for immersed 2-spheres in non-compact, three-dimensional Riemannian manifold $(M,h)$ without boundary. First, under the assumption that $(M,h)$ is the euclidean 3-space endowed with a semi-perturbed metric with perturbation small in $C^1$ norm and of compact support, we prove that if there is some point $\bar{x}\in M$ with scalar curvature $R^M(\bar{x})>0$ then there exists a smooth embedding $ f:\mathbb{S}^2 \hookrightarrow M$ minimizing the Willmore functional $\frac{1}{4}\int |H|^2$, where $H$ is the mean curvature. Second, assuming that $(M,h)$ is of bounded geometry (i.e. bounded sectional curvature and strictly positive injectivity radius) and asymptotically euclidean or hyperbolic we prove that if there is some point $\bar{x}\in M$ with scalar curvature $R^M(\bar{x})>6$ then there exists a smooth immersion $f:\mathbb{S}^2\hookrightarrow M$ minimizing the functional $\int (\frac{1}{2}|A|^2+1)$, where $A$ is the second fundamental form. Finally, adding the bound $K^M \leq 2$ to the last assumptions, we obtain a smooth minimizer $f:\mathbb{S}^2 \hookrightarrow M$ for the functional $\int \frac{1}{4}(|H|^2+1)$. The assumptions of the last two theorems are satisfied in a large class of 3-manifolds arising as spacelike timeslices solutions of the Einstein vacuum equation in case of null or negative cosmological constant.

To this aim we introduce the following new tools: some monotonicity formulas for varifolds in ${\mathbb{R }^S}$ involving $\int |H|^p$to avoid degeneracy of the minimizer, and a sort of isoperimetric inequality to bound the mass in terms of the mentioned functionals.

They are relative compactified Prym varieties associated to curves on symplectic surfaces with an antisymplectic involution. They are identified with the fixed locus of a symplectic involution on singular moduli spaces of sheaves of dimension 1. An explicit example, giving a singular irreducible symplectic 6-fold without symplectic resolutions, is described for a K3 surface which is the double cover of a cubic surface. In the case of abelian surfaces, a variation of this construction is studied to get irreducible symplectic varieties: relative compactified 0-Prym varieties. A partial classification result is obtained for involutions without fixed points: either the 0-Prym variety is birational to an irreducible symplectic variety of K3[n]-type, or it does not admit symplectic resolutions. %I SISSA %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/7434 %1 7511 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %# MAT/03 %$ Submitted by Tommaso Matteini (tommatte@sissa.it) on 2014-09-15T12:25:24Z No. of bitstreams: 1 PhDThesis.pdf: 910291 bytes, checksum: 263baffb058a78779fea853930868b2e (MD5) %0 Report %D 2014 %T Homogenization of functional with linear growth in the context of A-quasiconvexity %A Jose Matias %A Marco Morandotti %A Pedro M.

For Hamiltonian or reversible nonlinearities we also prove their linear stability. The key analysis concerns the reducibility of the linearized operator at an approximate solution, which provides a sharp asymptotic expansion of its eigenvalues. For quasi-linear perturbations this cannot be directly obtained by a KAM iteration. Hence we first perform a regularization procedure, which conjugates the linearized operator to an operator with constant coefficients plus a bounded remainder. These transformations are obtained by changes of variables induced by diffeomorphisms of the torus and pseudo-differential operators. At this point we implement a Nash-Moser iteration (with second order Melnikov non-resonance conditions) which completes the reduction to constant coefficients. © 2014 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. %B Mathematische Annalen %P 1-66 %G eng %R 10.1007/s00208-013-1001-7 %0 Thesis %D 2014 %T KAM for quasi-linear and fully nonlinear perturbations of Airy and KdV equations %A Riccardo Montalto %I SISSA %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/7476 %1 7571 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %# MAT/05 %$ Submitted by rmontalt@sissa.it (rmontalt@sissa.it) on 2014-10-27T10:15:33Z No. of bitstreams: 1 Tesi-Phd-Montalto-Riccardo.pdf: 1843377 bytes, checksum: b4e504e6ad1860c3d3580beb4e24efff (MD5) %0 Journal Article %J C.

We generalize the results of \cite{Moore:1991ir}, \cite{Belavin:2008kv}, where Lee-Yang series $(2,2s+1)$ was studied, to $(3,3s+p_0)$ Minimal Liouville Gravity, where $p_0=1,2$. We demonstrate that there exist such coordinates $\tau_{m,n}$ on the space of the perturbed Minimal Liouville Gravity theories, in which the partition function of the theory is determined by the Douglas string equation. The coordinates $\tau_{m,n}$ are related in a non-linear fashion to the natural coupling constants $\lambda_{m,n}$ of the perturbations of Minimal Lioville Gravity by the physical operators $O_{m,n}$. We find this relation from the requirement that the correlation numbers in Minimal Liouville Gravity must satisfy the conformal and fusion selection rules. After fixing this relation we compute three- and four-point correlation numbers when they are not zero. The results are in agreement with the direct calculations in Minimal Liouville Gravity available in the literature \cite{Goulian:1990qr}, \cite{Zamolodchikov:2005sj}, \cite{Belavin:2006ex}. %I Springer %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/34588 %1 34795 %2 Physics %4 2 %$ Submitted by gfeltrin@sissa.it (gfeltrin@sissa.it) on 2015-09-28T14:45:32Z No. of bitstreams: 1 art2014.pdf: 914777 bytes, checksum: 6f6d70a301b22d993393d16ad5abef80 (MD5) %R 10.1007/JHEP01(2014)156 %0 Journal Article %D 2014 %T Model Order Reduction in Fluid Dynamics: Challenges and Perspectives %A Toni Lassila %A Andrea Manzoni %A Alfio Quarteroni %A Gianluigi Rozza %X This chapter reviews techniques of model reduction of fluid dynamics systems. Fluid systems are known to be difficult to reduce efficiently due to several reasons. First of all, they exhibit strong nonlinearities - which are mainly related either to nonlinear convection terms and/or some geometric variability - that often cannot be treated by simple linearization. Additional difficulties arise when attempting model reduction of unsteady flows, especially when long-term transient behavior needs to be accurately predicted using reduced order models and more complex features, such as turbulence or multiphysics phenomena, have to be taken into consideration. We first discuss some general principles that apply to many parametric model order reduction problems, then we apply them on steady and unsteady viscous flows modelled by the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. We address questions of inf-sup stability, certification through error estimation, computational issues and-in the unsteady case - long-time stability of the reduced model. Moreover, we provide an extensive list of literature references. %I Springer %G en %1 34923 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %$ Submitted by gfeltrin@sissa.it (gfeltrin@sissa.it) on 2015-10-22T15:11:51Z No. of bitstreams: 1 preprint2014.pdf: 287014 bytes, checksum: b195410aa3f63643829ed25f1adb6520 (MD5) %R 10.1007/978-3-319-02090-7_9 %0 Journal Article %D 2014 %T A modular spectral triple for κ-Minkowski space %A Marco Matassa %X We present a spectral triple for κ-Minkowski space in two dimensions. Starting from an algebra naturally associated to this space, a Hilbert space is built using a weight which is invariant under the κ-Poincaré algebra. The weight satisfies a KMS condition and its associated modular operator plays an important role in the construction. This forces us to introduce two ingredients which have a modular flavour: the first is a twisted commutator, used to obtain a boundedness condition for the Dirac operator, and the second is a weight replacing the usual operator trace, used to measure the growth of the resolvent of the Dirac operator. We show that, under some assumptions related to the symmetries and the classical limit, there is a unique Dirac operator and automorphism such that the twisted commutator is bounded.

The non-self-adjoint scattering problem and ill-posed limiting Whitham equations associated to focusing NLS make rigorous asymptotic results difficult. Previous studies have focused on special classes of analytic initial data for which the limiting elliptic Whitham equations are wellposed. In this paper we consider another exactly solvable family of initial data,the family of square barriers,ψ 0(x) = qχ[-L,L] for real amplitudes q. Using Riemann-Hilbert techniques, we obtain rigorous pointwise asymptotics for the semiclassical limit of focusing NLS globally in space and up to an O(1) maximal time. In particular, we show that the discontinuities in our initial data regularize by the immediate generation of genus-one oscillations emitted into the support of the initial data. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case in which the genus structure of the semiclassical asymptotics for focusing NLS have been calculated for nonanalytic initial data. %I Wiley Periodicals %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/35066 %1 35301 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %$ Submitted by gfeltrin@sissa.it (gfeltrin@sissa.it) on 2015-11-30T14:57:14Z No. of bitstreams: 1 preprint2014.pdf: 5320973 bytes, checksum: 457b6c96cf2335a7c55084d85eed3dbc (MD5) %R 10.1002/cpa.21494 %0 Journal Article %D 2014 %T Shape Optimization by Free-Form Deformation: Existence Results and Numerical Solution for Stokes Flows %A Francesco Ballarin %A Andrea Manzoni %A Gianluigi Rozza %A Sandro Salsa %X Shape optimization problems governed by PDEs result from many applications in computational fluid dynamics. These problems usually entail very large computational costs and require also a suitable approach for representing and deforming efficiently the shape of the underlying geometry, as well as for computing the shape gradient of the cost functional to be minimized. Several approaches based on the displacement of a set of control points have been developed in the last decades, such as the so-called free-form deformations. In this paper we present a new theoretical result which allows to recast free-form deformations into the general class of perturbation of identity maps, and to guarantee the compactness of the set of admissible shapes. Moreover, we address both a general optimization framework based on the continuous shape gradient and a numerical procedure for solving efficiently three-dimensional optimal design problems. This framework is applied to the optimal design of immersed bodies in Stokes flows, for which we consider the numerical solution of a benchmark case study from literature. %I Springer %G en %U http://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/34698 %1 34914 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %$ Approved for entry into archive by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2015-10-22T11:24:27Z (GMT) No. of bitstreams: 0 %R 10.1007/s10915-013-9807-8 %0 Journal Article %J J.

Since the decrease of the Wannier functions is characterised by the structure of the Bloch eigenspaces around the Dirac points, we introduce a geometric invariant of the family of eigenspaces, baptised eigenspace vorticity. We compare it with the pseudospin winding number. For every value n∈Z of the eigenspace vorticity, we exhibit a canonical model for the local topology of the eigenspaces. With the help of these canonical models, we show that the single band Wannier function w satisfies |w(x)|≤const |x|^{−2} as |x|→∞, both in monolayer and bilayer graphene.

In algebraic geometry such problem is the classification of algebraic varieties. In its strongest form it means to classify varieties up to biregular morphisms. However, birationally equivalent varieties share many interesting properties. Therefore for any birational equivalence class it is natural to work out a variety, which is the simplest in a suitable sense, and then study these varieties. This is the aim of birational geometry. In the first part of this thesis we deal with the biregular geometry of moduli spaces of curves, and in particular with their biregular automorphisms. However, in doing this we will consider some aspects of their birational geometry. The second part is devoted to the birational geometry of varieties of sums of powers and to some related problems which will lead us to computational geometry and geometric complexity theory. %I SISSA %G en %1 6962 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %# MAT/03 GEOMETRIA %$ Submitted by Alex Massarenti (massaren@sissa.it) on 2013-06-25T07:25:44Z No. of bitstreams: 1 AM_Thesis.pdf: 1175018 bytes, checksum: 8259bac19804f82ad17c11cd27d11c4a (MD5) %0 Journal Article %J Comptes Rendus Mathematique.

We state a result allowing to improve the computational performance of a three-step RB-ANOVA-RB method. This is a combination of the reduced basis (RB) method and the analysis of variations (ANOVA) expansion, aiming at compressing the parameter space without affecting the accuracy of the output. The idea of this method is to compute a first (coarse) RB approximation of the output of interest involving all the parameter components, but with a large tolerance on the a posteriori error estimate; then, we evaluate the ANOVA expansion of the output and freeze the least important parameter components; finally, considering a restricted model involving just the retained parameter components, we compute a second (fine) RB approximation with a smaller tolerance on the a posteriori error estimate. The fine RB approximation entails lower computational costs than the coarse one, because of the reduction of parameter dimensionality. Our result provides a criterion to avoid the computation of those terms in the ANOVA expansion that are related to the interaction between parameters in the bilinear form, thus making the RB-ANOVA-RB procedure computationally more feasible.

In this paper we show that single cell electrophysiological responses of vertebrate olfactory receptors and of photoreceptors to different input protocols exhibit several common features related to adaptation, and that these features can be used to investigate the dynamical structure of the feedback regulation responsible for the adaptation. In particular, we point out that two different forms of adaptation can be observed, in response to steps and to pairs of pulses. These two forms of adaptation appear to be in a dynamical trade-off: the more adaptation to a step is close to perfect, the slower is the recovery in adaptation to pulse pairs and viceversa. Neither of the two forms is explained by the dynamical models currently used to describe adaptation, such as the integral feedback model.

We argue that near the critical point of gradient catastrophe of the dispersionless system, the solutions to a suitable initial value problem for the perturbed equations are approximately described by particular solutions to the Painlev\'e-I (P$_I$) equation or its fourth order analogue P$_I^2$. As concrete examples we discuss nonlinear Schr\"odinger equations in the semiclassical limit. A numerical study of these cases provides strong evidence in support of the conjecture.

The swimmers are assumed to be of small size, and all inertial effects are neglected. Hydrodynamic interactions are treated in a simplified way, using the local drag approximation of resistive force theory. We prove existence and uniqueness of the solution of the equations of motion driven by shape changes of the swimmer. Moreover, we prove a controllability result showing that given any pair of initial and final states, there exists a history of shape changes such that the resulting motion takes the swimmer from the initial to the final state. We give a constructive proof, based on the composition of elementary maneuvers (straightening and its inverse, rotation, translation), each of which represents the solution of an interesting motion planning problem. Finally, we prove the existence of solutions for the optimal control problem of finding, among the histories of shape changes taking the swimmer from an initial to a final state, the one of minimal energetic cost.

As the thickness of the plate tends to zero, we prove via Γ-convergence techniques that solutions to the three-dimensional quasistatic evolution problem of Prandtl–Reuss elastoplasticity converge to a quasistatic evolution of a suitable reduced model. In this limiting model the admissible displacements are of Kirchhoff–Love type and the stretching and bending components of the stress are coupled through a plastic flow rule. Some equivalent formulations of the limiting problem in rate form are derived, together with some two-dimensional characterizations for suitable choices of the data.

First, we recast the optimal control problem in the framework of saddle-point problems in order to take advantage of the already developed RB theory for Stokes-type problems. Then, the usual ingredients of the RB methodology are called into play: a Galerkin projection onto a low-dimensional space of basis functions properly selected by an adaptive procedure; an affine parametric dependence enabling one to perform competitive offline-online splitting in the computational procedure; and an efficient and rigorous a posteriori error estimate on the state, control, and adjoint variables as well as on the cost functional. Finally, we address some numerical tests that confirm our theoretical results and show the efficiency of the proposed technique. %B SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing %V 35 %P A2316–A2340 %G eng %R 10.1137/120894737 %0 Report %D 2013 %T A Reduced Computational and Geometrical Framework for Inverse Problems in Haemodynamics %A Toni Lassila %A Andrea Manzoni %A Alfio Quarteroni %A Gianluigi Rozza %I SISSA %G en %1 6571 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %# MAT/08 ANALISI NUMERICA %$ Submitted by Gianluigi Rozza (grozza@sissa.it) on 2013-04-30T14:47:07Z No. of bitstreams: 1 LMQR_inverse_problems_Haemo.pdf: 2913600 bytes, checksum: 9bff594072e6c7b4a664bdade361a1a9 (MD5) %0 Report %D 2013 %T A reduced-order strategy for solving inverse Bayesian identification problems in physiological flows %A Toni Lassila %A Andrea Manzoni %A Alfio Quarteroni %A Gianluigi Rozza %I SISSA %G en %1 6555 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %# MAT/08 ANALISI NUMERICA %$ Submitted by Gianluigi Rozza (grozza@sissa.it) on 2013-04-12T10:16:42Z\nNo. of bitstreams: 1\nHanoi_RQML_2012_REVISED.pdf: 1360222 bytes, checksum: 4cb9ffaaf9fd67e3eacf4d9c060d0940 (MD5) %0 Report %D 2013 %T Reduction Strategies for Shape Dependent Inverse Problems in Haemodynamics %A Toni Lassila %A Andrea Manzoni %A Gianluigi Rozza %I SISSA %G en %1 6554 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %# MAT/08 ANALISI NUMERICA %$ Submitted by Gianluigi Rozza (grozza@sissa.it) on 2013-04-12T09:59:54Z\nNo. of bitstreams: 1\n03910397-1.pdf: 531448 bytes, checksum: 0ec611490748bed35d10f612e8296f27 (MD5) %0 Journal Article %J Advances in Nonlinear Analysis %D 2013 %T Remarks on the Moser–Trudinger inequality %A Gabriele Mancini %A Luca Battaglia %XWe extend the Moser-Trudinger inequality to any Euclidean domain satisfying Poincaré's inequality.

The equations of motion are written in a semi-Lagrangian framework, and the resulting integro-diff erential equations are discretized in space via an adaptive iso-parametric collocation Boundary Element Method, and in time via adaptive implicit Backward Di erentiation Formulas (BDF) with variable step and variable order. When the velocity of the advancing ship hull is non-negligible, the semi-Lagrangian formulation (also known as Arbitrary Lagrangian Eulerian formulation, or ALE) of the free surface equations contains dominant transport terms which are stabilized with a Streamwise Upwind Petrov-Galerkin (SUPG) method. The SUPG stabilization allows automatic and robust adaptation of the spatial discretization with unstructured quadrilateral grids. Preliminary results are presented where we compare our numerical model with experimental results on the case of a Wigley hull advancing in calm water with fi xed sink and trim.

Madabhushi %A Giulia M.B. Viggiani %K Centrifuge modelling %X This paper describes an experimental investigation of the behaviour of embedded retaining walls under seismic actions. Nine centrifuge tests were carried out on reduced-scale models of pairs of retaining walls in dry sand, either cantilevered or with one level of props near the top. The experimental data indicate that, for maximum accelerations that are smaller than the critical limit equilibrium value, the retaining walls experience significant permanent displacements under increasing structural loads, whereas for larger accelerations the walls rotate under constant internal forces. The critical acceleration at which the walls start to rotate increases with increasing maximum acceleration. No significant displacements are measured if the current earthquake is less severe than earthquakes previously experienced by the wall. The increase of critical acceleration is explained in terms of redistribution of earth pressures and progressive mobilisation of the passive strength in front of the wall. The experimental data for cantilevered retaining walls indicate that the permanent displacements of the wall can be reasonably predicted adopting a Newmark-type calculation with a critical acceleration that is a fraction of the limit equilibrium value. %B Geotechnique, Volume 62, Issue 12, December 2012, Pages 1081-1094 %I ICE Publishing %G en %U http://hdl.handle.net/1963/6933 %1 6912 %2 Mathematics %4 -1 %$ Submitted by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2013-05-30T10:11:44Z No. of bitstreams: 0 %R 10.1680/geot.11.P.029 %0 Journal Article %J Mathematical Modelling and Numerical Analysis, in press, 2012-13 %D 2012 %T Boundary control and shape optimization for the robust design of bypass anastomoses under uncertainty %A Toni Lassila %A Andrea Manzoni %A Alfio Quarteroni %A Gianluigi Rozza %K shape optimization %X We review the optimal design of an arterial bypass graft following either a (i) boundary optimal control approach, or a (ii) shape optimization formulation.

In this respect the fact that so far the implications of deformed Lorentz symmetry have been investigated only for flat (Minkowskian) spacetimes represents a very significant limitation, since for propagation over cosmological distances the curvature/expansion of spacetime is evidently tangible. We here provide a significant step toward filling this gap by exhibiting an explicit example of Planck-scale-deformed relativistic symmetries of a spacetime with constant rate of expansion (deSitterian). Technically we obtain the first ever example of a relativistic theory of worldlines of particles with 3 nontrivial relativistic invariants: a large speed scale (\"speed-of-light scale\"), a large distance scale (inverse of the \"expansion-rate scale\"), and a large momentum scale (\"Planck scale\"). We address some of the challenges that had obstructed success for previous attempts by exploiting the recent understanding of the connection between deformed Lorentz symmetry and relativity of spacetime locality. We also offer a preliminary analysis of the differences between the scenario we here propose and the most studied scenario for broken (rather than deformed) Lorentz symmetry in expanding spacetimes. %B Phys.

In terms of measured transduction current, multipulse adaptation appears as a decrease in the amplitude of the second of two consecutive responses when the olfactory neuron is stimulated with two brief pulses. Step adaptation occurs in response to a sustained steplike stimulation and is characterized by a return to a steady-state current amplitude close to the prestimulus value, after a transient peak. In this article, we formulate a dynamical model of the olfactory transduction pathway, which includes the kinetics of the CNG channels, the concentration of Ca ions flowing through them, and the Ca-complexes responsible for the regulation. Based on this model, a common dynamical explanation for the two types of adaptation is suggested. We show that both forms of adaptation can be well described using different time constants for the kinetics of Ca ions (faster) and the kinetics of the feedback mechanisms (slower). The model is validated on experimental data collected in voltage-clamp conditions using different techniques and animal species. %B Biophysical Journal.

In this paper we review the generalized reduced basis method as a fast computational tool for the uniform approximation of the solution manifold. We focus on operators showing an affi ne parametric dependence, expressed as a linear combination of parameter-independent operators through some smooth, parameter-dependent scalar functions. In the case that the parameter-dependent operator has a dominant term in its affi ne expansion, one can prove the existence of exponentially convergent uniform approximation spaces for the entire solution manifold.

In comparison with alternative solid-phase techniques for diagnostic DNA detection, NAMs have the advantage of combining a small size with a high homogeneity of the DNA surface coverage. These two properties favour the extreme miniaturization and ultrasensitivity in high-throughput biosensing devices. The systematic use of NAMs for quantitative DNA (and protein) detection has so far suffered from the lack of a control on key fabrication parameters, such as the ss- or ds-DNA surface coverage. Here we report on a combined experimental-computational study that allows us to estimate the surface density of the grafted DNA by analyzing the sample mechanical response, that is the DNA patch height vs. applied tip load curves. It is shown that the same analysis scheme can be used to detect the occurrence of hybridization with complementary strands in solution and estimate its efficiency. Thanks to these quantitative relationships it is possible to use a single AFM-based setup to: (i) fabricate a DNA NAM, (ii) control the DNA surface coverage, and (iii) characterize its level of hybridization helping the design of NAMs with pre-determined fabrication parameters. %B Nanoscale. 2012 Mar; 4(5):1734-41 %I Royal Society of Chemistry %G en %1 6998 %2 Physics %4 -1 %$ Submitted by Maria Pia Calandra (calapia@sissa.it) on 2013-08-08T07:48:55Z No. of bitstreams: 0 %R 10.1039/c2nr11662f %0 Journal Article %J Central European Journal of Mathematics 10, nr. 4 (2012) 1232 %D 2012 %T Moduli of symplectic instanton vector bundles of higher rank on projective space $\\mathbbP^3$ %A Ugo Bruzzo %A Dimitri Markushevich %A Alexander Tikhomirov %X Symplectic instanton vector bundles on the projective space $\\mathbb{P}^3$ constitute a natural generalization of mathematical instantons of rank 2.

An explicit formula for the relative determinant of two conformally related metrics was computed by Branson in Branson (1996). A similar formula holds for Cheeger's half-torsion, which plays a role in self-dual field theory (see Juhl, 2009), and is defined in terms of regularized determinants of the Hodge laplacian on $p$-forms ($p < n/2$). In this article we show that the corresponding actions are unbounded (above and below) on any conformal four-manifold. We also show that the conformal class of the round sphere admits a second solution which is not given by the pull-back of the round metric by a conformal map, thus violating uniqueness up to gauge equivalence. These results differ from the properties of the determinant of the conformal Laplacian established in Chang and Yang (1995), Branson, Chang, and Yang (1992), and Gursky (1997). We also study entire solutions of the Euler-Lagrange equation of $\log \det P$ and the half-torsion $\tau_h$ on $\mathbb{R}^4 \setminus {0}$, and show the existence of two families of periodic solutions. One of these families includes Delaunay-type solutions. %B Communications in Mathematical Physics, Volume 315, Issue 1, September 2012, Pages 1-37 %I Springer %G en %U http://hdl.handle.net/1963/6559 %1 6488 %2 Mathematics %4 1 %# MAT/05 ANALISI MATEMATICA %$ Submitted by Andrea Malchiodi (malchiod@sissa.it) on 2013-03-14T10:25:46Z No. of bitstreams: 1 1105.3762v3.pdf: 658857 bytes, checksum: 2821cb9caed2f5cda3b406c745b73009 (MD5) %R 10.1007/s00220-012-1535-7 %0 Journal Article %J SIAM Journal on Mathematical Analysis 44, nr. 1 (2012) 245-292 %D 2012 %T Quasistatic evolution in non-associative plasticity - the cap models %A Jean-Francois Babadjian %A Gilles A.

In this paper we present a new reduced framework for the formulation, the analysis and the numerical solution of parametrized PDE-constrained optimization problems. This framework is based on a suitable saddle-point formulation of the optimal control problem and exploits the reduced basis method for the rapid and reliable solution of parametrized PDEs, leading to a relevant computational reduction with respect to traditional discretization techniques such as the finite element method. This allows a very efficient evaluation of state solutions and cost functionals, leading to an effective solution of repeated optimal control problems, even on domains of variable shape, for which a further (geometrical) reduction is pursued, relying on flexible shape parametrization techniques. This setting is applied to the solution of two problems arising from haemodynamics, dealing with both data reconstruction and data assimilation over domains of variable shape,\\r\\nwhich can be recast in a common PDE-constrained optimization formulation. %B European Congress on Computational Methods in Applied Sciences and Engineering (ECCOMAS 2012) J.

A plastic cell envelope called pellicle mediates these deformations. Unlike ciliary or flagellar motility, the biophysics of this mode is not well understood, including its efficiency and molecular machinery. We quantitatively examine video recordings of four euglenids executing such motions with statistical learning methods. This analysis reveals strokes of high uniformity in shape and pace. We then interpret the observations in the light of a theory for the pellicle kinematics, providing a precise understanding of the link between local actuation by pellicle shear and shape control. We systematically understand common observations, such as the helical conformations of the pellicle, and identify previously unnoticed features of metaboly. While two of our euglenids execute their stroke at constant body volume, the other two exhibit deviations of about 20% from their average volume, challenging current models of low Reynolds number locomotion. We find that the active pellicle shear deformations causing shape changes can reach 340%, and estimate the velocity of the molecular motors. Moreover, we find that metaboly accomplishes locomotion at hydrodynamic efficiencies comparable to those of ciliates and flagellates. Our results suggest new quantitative experiments, provide insight into the evolutionary history of euglenids, and suggest that the pellicle may serve as a model for engineered active surfaces with applications in microfluidics. %B Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.

A suitable functional setting is introduced to solve the Brinkman system for the velocity field and the pressure of the fluid by variational techniques. The equations of motion are written by imposing a self-propulsion constraint, thus allowing the viscous forces and torques to be the only ones acting on the swimmer. From an infinite-dimensional control on the shape of the swimmer, a system of six ordinary differential equations for the spatial position and the orientation of the swimmer is obtained. This is dealt with standard techniques for ordinary differential equations, once the coefficients are proved to be measurable and bounded. The main result turns out to extend an analogous result previously obtained for the Stokes system.

Anal. %D 2011 %T An Existence and Uniqueness Result for the Motion of Self-Propelled Microswimmers %A Gianni Dal Maso %A Antonio DeSimone %A Marco Morandotti %XWe present an analytical framework to study the motion of micro-swimmers in a viscous fluid. Our main result is that, under very mild regularity assumptions, the change of shape determines uniquely the motion of the swimmer. We assume that the Reynolds number is very small, so that the velocity field of the surrounding, infinite fluid is governed by the Stokes system and all inertial effects can be neglected. Moreover, we enforce the self propulsion constraint (no external forces and torques). Therefore, Newton\\\'s equations of motion reduce to the vanishing of the viscous drag force and torque acting on the body. By exploiting an integral representation of viscous force and torque, the equations of motion can be reduced to a system of six ordinary differential equations. Variational techniques are used to prove the boundedness and measurability of its coefficients, so that classical results on ordinary differential equations can be invoked to prove existence and uniqueness of the solution.

We show that in a suitable limit, corresponding to the Nekrasov-Shatashvili one, the loop equations of the matrix model reproduce the Hamiltonians of the quantum Hitchin system on the sphere and the torus with marked points. The eigenvalues of these Hamiltonians are shown to be the epsilon1-deformation of the chiral observables of the corresponding N=2 four ndimensional gauge theory.

Focal injection enabled us to separate the effects of proepileptic stimuli initiated by KA injection. Both the injected and contralateral hippocampus participated in the status epilepticus. However, neuronal death induced by KA treatment was restricted to the injected hippocampus, although there was some contralateral axonal degeneration. We profiled gene expression changes in dorsal and ventral regions of both the injected and contralateral hippocampus. Changes were detected in the expression of 1526 transcripts in samples from three time-points: (i) during the KA-induced status epilepticus, (ii) at 2 weeks, before recurrent seizures emerged, and (iii) at 6 months after seizures emerged. Grouping genes with similar spatio-temporal changes revealed an early transcriptional response, strong immune, cell death and growth responses at 2 weeks and an activation of immune and extracellular matrix genes persisting at 6 months. Immunostaining for proteins coded by genes identified from array studies provided evidence for gliogenesis and suggested that the proteoglycan biglycan is synthesized by astrocytes and contributes to a glial scar. Gene changes at 6 months after KA injection were largely restricted to tissue from the injection site. This suggests that either recurrent seizures might depend on maintained processes including immune responses and changes in extracellular matrix proteins near the injection site or alternatively might result from processes, such as growth, distant from the injection site and terminated while seizures are maintained.

Many-body states whose wave-function admits a representation in terms of a uniform binary-tree tensor decomposition are shown to obey to power-law two-body correlations functions. Any such state can be associated with the ground state of a translational invariant Hamiltonian which, depending on the dimension of the systems sites, involve at most couplings between third-neighboring sites. A detailed analysis of their spectra shows that they admit an exponentially large ground space.

Formaggia %A Andrea Mola %A N Parolini %A M Pischiutta %XThis paper proposes a new model describing the dynamics of a rowing boat for general three-dimensional motions. The complex interaction between the different components of the rowers–-oars–-boat system is analysed and reduced to a set of ordinary differential equations governing the rigid motion along the six degrees of freedom. To treat the unstable nature of the physical problem, a rather simple (but effective) control model is included, which mimics the main active control techniques adopted by the rowers during their action.

We investigate the class of one-dimensional periodic potentials for which all gaps vanish at the center of the Brillouin zone. We characterise themthrough a necessary and sufficient condition. Potentials of the form we focus on arise in different fields of Physics, from supersymmetric Quantum Mechanics, to Korteweg-de Vries equation theory and classical diffusion problems. The O.D.E. counterpart to this problem is the characterisation of periodic potentials for which coexistence occurs of linearly independent solutions of the corresponding Schrödinger equation (Hill\\\'s equation). This result is placed in the perspective of the previous related results available in the literature. %B Mem. Differential Equations Math.

More precisely, we show that stationary points of the nonlinear elastic functional $E^h$, whose energies (per unit cross-section) are bounded by $Ch^2$, converge to stationary points of the $\\\\varGamma$-limit of $E^h/h^2$. This corresponds to a nonlinear one-dimensional model for inextensible rods, describing bending and torsion effects. The proof is based on the rigidity estimate for low-energy deformations by Friesecke, James and Müller and on a compensated compactness argument in a singular geometry. In addition, possible concentration effects of the strain are controlled by a careful truncation argument. %B Proc. Roy. Soc. Edinburgh Sect.

We first prove that the TOS is characterized by a \\\"two-snakes\\\" configuration on the whole $S^2$, except for a neighborhood $U_\\\\alpha$ of the south pole $(0,0,-1)^T$ of diameter at most ${\\\\cal O}(\\\\alpha)$. We next show that, inside $U_\\\\alpha$, the TOS depends on the relationship between $r(\\\\alpha):=\\\\pi/2\\\\alpha-[\\\\pi/2\\\\alpha]$ and $\\\\alpha$. More precisely, we characterize three main relationships by considering sequences $(\\\\alpha_k)_{k\\\\geq 0}$ satisfying (a) $r(\\\\alpha_k)=\\\\bar{r}$, (b) $r(\\\\alpha_k)=C\\\\alpha_k$, and (c) $r(\\\\alpha_k)=0$, where $\\\\bar{r}\\\\in (0,1)$ and $C>0$. In each case, we describe the TOS and provide, after a suitable rescaling, the limiting behavior, as $\\\\alpha$ tends to zero, of the corresponding TOS inside $U_\\\\alpha$. %B SIAM J.

It is expressed in terms of a sign condition for a nonlocal quadratic form on $H^1_0(\\\\Gamma)$, $\\\\Gamma$ being a submanifold of the regular part of the discontinuity set of the critical point. Two equivalent formulations are provided: one in terms of the first eigenvalue of a suitable compact operator, the other involving a sort of nonlocal capacity of $\\\\Gamma$. A sufficient condition for minimality is also deduced. Finally, an explicit example is discussed, where a complete characterization of the domains where the second variation is nonnegative can be given. %B Calc. Var.

The presence of a nonconvex term due to the softening phenomenon requires a nontrivial extension of the variational framework for rate-independent problems to the case of a nonconvex energy functional. We argue that, in this case, the use of global minimizers in the corresponding incremental problems is not justified from the mechanical point of view. Thus, we analize a different selection criterion for the solutions of the quasistatic evolution problem, based on a viscous approximation. This leads to a generalized formulation in terms of Young measures, developed in the first part of the paper. In the second part we apply our approach to some concrete examples. %B Arch. Ration.

The need and the nature of scaling limits of infinitely many particles is discussed, which imposes that a physically meaningful and mathematically well-posed definition of asymptotic condensation is placed at the level of marginals.\\nThe topic of correlations in the condensed state is addressed in order to show their influence at this level of marginals, both in the true condensed state and in the suitable trial functions one introduces to approximate the many-body structure and energy. Complete condensation is shown to be equivalently defined at any fixed k-body level, both for pure and mixed states. Further, it is proven to be equivalent to some other characterizations in terms of asymptotic factorization of the many-body state, which are currently present in the literature. %G en_US %U http://hdl.handle.net/1963/1986 %1 2210 %2 Mathematics %3 Mathematical Physics %$ Submitted by Andrea Wehrenfennig (andreaw@sissa.it) on 2007-08-07T12:22:30Z\\nNo. of bitstreams: 1\\n39-2007MP.pdf: 563889 bytes, checksum: b6688b840128220a2e61def6a60ff7d9 (MD5) %0 Journal Article %J Differential equations and quantum groups, IRMA Lect.

In particular, it is concluded that the surfactant segregates to the interfaces, and that the prescriptionof the distribution of surfactant will dictate the locus of interfaces, what is in agreement with experimentation. %B Arch.

Agrachev %A Andrea Nistri %A Rashid Giniatullin %X The function of ATP-activated P2X3 receptors involved in pain sensation is modulated by desensitization, a phenomenon poorly understood. The present study used patch-clamp recording from cultured rat or mouse sensory neurons and kinetic modeling to clarify the properties of P2X3 receptor desensitization. Two types of desensitization were observed, a fast process (t1/2 = 50 ms; 10 microM ATP) following the inward current evoked by micromolar agonist concentrations, and a slow process (t1/2 = 35 s; 10 nM ATP) that inhibited receptors without activating them. We termed the latter high-affinity desensitization (HAD). Recovery from fast desensitization or HAD was slow and agonist-dependent. When comparing several agonists, there was analogous ranking order for agonist potency, rate of desensitization and HAD effectiveness, with 2-methylthioadenosine triphosphate the strongest and beta,gamma-methylene-ATP the weakest. HAD was less developed with recombinant (ATP IC50 = 390 nM) than native P2X3 receptors (IC50 = 2.3 nM). HAD could also be induced by nanomolar ATP when receptors seemed to be nondesensitized, indicating that resting receptors could express high-affinity binding sites. Desensitization properties were well accounted for by a cyclic model in which receptors could be desensitized from either open or closed states. Recovery was assumed to be a multistate process with distinct kinetics dependent on the agonist-dependent dissociation rate from desensitized receptors. Thus, the combination of agonist-specific mechanisms such as desensitization onset, HAD, and resensitization could shape responsiveness of sensory neurons to P2X3 receptor agonists. By using subthreshold concentrations of an HAD-potent agonist, it might be possible to generate sustained inhibition of P2X3 receptors for controlling chronic pain. %B Molecular pharmacology. 2006 Jul; 70(1):373-82 %I the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics %G en %U http://hdl.handle.net/1963/4974 %1 4799 %2 Neuroscience %3 Neurobiology %4 -1 %$ Submitted by Alireza Alemi-neissi (alemi@sissa.it) on 2011-10-30T18:23:32Z\\nNo. of bitstreams: 0 %R 10.1124/mol.106.023564 %0 Report %D 2006 %T N=1 superpotentials from multi-instanton calculus %A Francesco Fucito %A Jose F.

On the Bloch sphere (i.e. after a suitable Hopf projection), this problem can be attacked with techniques of optimal syntheses on 2-D manifolds. Let (-E,E) be the two energy levels, and |omega (t)| ≤ M the bound on the field amplitude. For each couple of values E and M, we determine the time optimal synthesis starting from the level -E and we provide the explicit expression of the time optimal trajectories steering the state one to the state two, in terms of a parameter that can be computed solving numerically a suitable equation. For M/E << 1, every time optimal trajectory is bang-bang and in particular the corresponding control is periodic with frequency of the order of the resonance frequency wR = 2E. On the other side, for M/E > 1, the time optimal trajectory steering the state one to the state two is bang-bang with exactly one switching. Fixed E we also prove that for M → ∞ the time needed to reach the state two tends to zero. In the case M/E > 1 there are time optimal trajectories containing a singular arc. Finally we compare these results with some known results of Khaneja, Brockett and Glaser and with those obtained by controlling the magnetic field both on the x and y directions (or with one external field, but in the rotating wave approximation). As byproduct we prove that the qualitative shape of the time optimal synthesis presents different patterns, that cyclically alternate as M/E → 0, giving a partial proof of a conjecture formulated in a previous paper. %B Journal of Mathematical Physics 47, 062101 (2006) %G en_US %U http://hdl.handle.net/1963/1734 %1 2418 %2 Mathematics %3 Functional Analysis and Applications %$ Submitted by Andrea Wehrenfennig (andreaw@sissa.it) on 2006-02-03T08:14:36Z\\nNo. of bitstreams: 1\\nquant-ph0512074.pdf: 550597 bytes, checksum: 588a3483219fa1360d5f71c131e2488e (MD5) %R 10.1063/1.2203236 %0 Journal Article %J Comm.

We define the notion of (p-)mean curvature and of the associated (p-)minimal surfaces, extending some concepts previously given for the (flat) Heisenberg group. We interpret the p-mean curvature not only as the tangential sublaplacian of a defining function, but also as the curvature of a characteristic curve, and as a quantity in terms of calibration geometry. As a differential equation, the p-minimal surface equation is degenerate (hyperbolic and elliptic). To analyze the singular set, we formulate some {\em extension} theorems, which describe how the characteristic curves meet the singular set. This allows us to classify the entire solutions to this equation and to solve a Bernstein-type problem (for graphs over the $xy$-plane) in the Heisenberg group $H_1$. In $H_{1}$, identified with the Euclidean space $R^{3}$, the p-minimal surfaces are classical ruled surfaces with the rulings generated by Legendrian lines. We also prove a uniqueness theorem for the Dirichlet problem under a condition on the size of the singular set in two dimensions, and generalize to higher dimensions without any size control condition. We also show that there are no closed, connected, $C^{2}$ smoothly immersed constant p-mean curvature or p-minimal surfaces of genus greater than one in the standard $S^{3}.$ This fact continues to hold when $S^{3}$ is replaced by a general spherical pseudohermitian 3-manifold. %B Annali della Scuola Normale Superiore di Pisa, Classe di Scienze (5), 4 (2005) 129-177. %I Scuola Normale Superiore %G en %U http://hdl.handle.net/1963/4579 %1 4347 %2 Mathematics %3 Functional Analysis and Applications %4 -1 %$ Submitted by Andrea Wehrenfennig (andreaw@sissa.it) on 2011-10-07T09:39:45Z No. of bitstreams: 1 math_0401136v3.pdf: 476553 bytes, checksum: 85c9b54a1f7e6c159e8fbc2486849a53 (MD5) %R 10.2422/2036-2145.2005.1.05 %0 Journal Article %J Ann.

We discuss the scaling of the elastic energy with respect to the film thickness, and show that in certain regimes the optimal energy scaling can be reached\\nby self-similar folding patterns that refine towards the boundary, in agreement with experimental observations. We then extend the analysis\\nto anisotropic compression, and discuss a simplified scalar model which suggests the presence of a transition between a regime where\\nthe deformation is governed by global properties of the domain and another one where the direction of maximal compression dominates and the scale of the folds is mainly determined by the distance to the boundary in the direction of the folds themselves. %B Comput.

When the matrices H-converge to a matrix A^0, we prove that there exist a subsequence and a measure mu^0 in M_0 such that the limit problem is the relaxed Dirichlet problem corresponding to A^0 and mu^0.

We specifically focus on problems relating to the structure of the reachable set of such systems, which may turn out to be either dense or discrete. We report results on the reachable set of linear quantized systems, and on a particular but interesting class of nonlinear systems, i.e., nonholonomic chained-form systems. For such systems, we provide a complete characterization of the reachable set, and, in case the set is discrete, a computable method to completely and succinctly describe its structure. Implications and open problems in the analysis and synthesis of quantized control systems are addressed. %B IEEE Trans. Automat.

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.

In our approach we use the conservation laws for KdV - type equations depending explicitly on times t1, t2, . . . to find the ǫ2-expansion of u(x, t1, t2, . . .) after the infinite number of shifts of u(x, 0, 0, . . .) ≡ x along t1, t2, . . . in recurrent form. The formulas for the free energy expansion are just obtained then as a result of quite simple integration procedure applied to un(x).

The problem is equivalent to a small perturbation of the Euler system. The difficulty is that the unperturbed system is properly degenerate, namely the unperturbed Hamiltonian depends only on two actions. Following the scheme used by Arnol\\\'d for the N-body problem, we use part of the perturbation to remove the degeneracy: precisely, we construct Birkhoff normal form up to a suitable finite order, thus eliminating the two fast angles; the resulting system is nearly integrable and (generically) no more degenerate, so KAM theorem applies. The resulting description of the motion is that, if the initial kinetic energy is sufficiently large, then for most initial data the angular momentum has nearly constant module, and moves slowly in the space, practically following the level curves of the initial potential averaged on the two fast angles; on the same time the body precesses around the instantaneous direction of the angular momentum, essentially as in the Euler-Poinsot motion. We also provide two simple physical examples, where the procedure does apply. %B Z. Angew. Math.

We also introduce a new Fourier-Mukai type transform for such surfaces.
