We will look at representation theory of a complete KacMoody group G over a finite field. G is a locally compact totally disconnected group, similar, yet slightly different to the group of points of a reductive group scheme over a local field. After defining the group we will prove that the category of smooth representations has finite homological dimension. At the end we discuss localisation and homological duality for this category.

26/03/19  Seminario  14:30  15:30  1201 Dal Passo  Alessandro Fortunati  University of Bristol (UK)  Arnold’s diffusion and variational methods: a constructive proof.
The talk is focused on the well known phenomenon of topological instability that can occour in a class of quasiintegrable systems, as pointed out by V.I. Arnold in 1964.
Right after the publication of the comprehensive work by Chierchia and Gallavotti in 1994 (based on geometric methods), a pioneering paper by U. Bessi proposed a variational formulation for the very same model studied in the original paper by Arnold. However, the constructivity of this approach is not as manifest as in techniques of geometric nature such as the ChierchiaGallavotti or the Windows methods.
The work presented is based on a revisitation of the tools proposed by Bessi then developed by Berti, Biasco and Bolle, in order to obtain a rigorous and constructive proof in the case of the Arnold example. New tools are introduced in order to formulate the quantitative estimates necessary for a machine implementation apt to construct the diffusing trajectories.

Perpetuant is one of the several concepts invented (in 1882) by J. J. Sylvester in his investigations of covariants for binary forms. It appears in one of the first issues of the American Journal of Mathematics which he had founded a few years before. It is a name which will hardly appear in a mathematical paper of the last 70 years, due to the complex history of invariant theory which was at some time declared dead only to resurrect several decades later. I learned of this word from GianCarlo Rota who pronounced it with an enigmatic smile.
In this talk I want to explain the concept, a Theorem of Stroh, and some new explicit description.

This short course addresses the theory of Kolmogorov nwidths in the setting of Hilbert spaces. Starting from Kolmogorov's original paper we cover the main results up until the present day. The application of this theory to spline approximation and the modern field of Isogeometric Analysis will be explained
