21/06/24  Seminario  14:30  15:30  1101 D'Antoni  Adam Doron  Haifa University  Arveson's hyperrigidity conjecture is false
A classical result in approximation theory due to Korovkin asserts that a sequence of positive unital maps on C([0,1]) converges pointwise to the identity if they merely converge to the identity on the functions 1,x,x^2. This result was later generalized by Saskin, who showed that convergence to the identity on a generating function system implies convergence to the identity everywhere if and only if the system has full Choquet boundary.
Arveson's last open conjecture in his seminal work on noncommutative boundary theory predicts that a noncommutative analogue of Saskin's result holds. We refute Arveson's conjecture with an elementary counterexample. All notions will be explained during the talk.

19/06/24  Seminario  16:00  17:00  1201 Dal Passo  Nicola Pinamonti  University of Genova  Secular growths and their relation to Equilibrium states in perturbative Quantum Field Theories
During this talk we discuss the emergence of secular growths in the correlation functions of interacting quantum field theories when treated with perturbation methods. It is known in the literature that these effects are present if the interaction Lagrangian density changes adiabatically in a finite interval of time. If this happens, the perturbative approach cannot furnish reliable results in the evaluation of scattering amplitudes or in the evaluation of various expectation values.
We show, during this talk, that these effects can be avoided for adiabatically switchedon interactions, if the spatial support of the interaction is compact and if the background state is suitably chosen. In particular, this is the case when the background state is chosen to be at equilibrium and when thermalisation occurs at late time. The same result holds also if the background state is only invariant under time translation or if the explicit time dependence is not too strong, in a precise sense which will be discussed in the talk.

17/06/24  Seminario  15:00  16:00  1201 Dal Passo  Tan BuiThanh  University of Texas at Austin  Learn2Solve: A Deep Learning Framework for RealTime Solutions of Forward, Inverse, and UQ Problems
Digital models (DMs) are designed to be replicas of systems and processes. At the core of a digital model (DM) is a physical/mathematical model that captures the behavior of the real system across temporal and spatial scales. One of the key roles of DMs is enabling “what if” scenario testing of hypothetical simulations to understand the implications at any point throughout the life cycle of the process, to monitor the process, to calibrate parameters to match the actual process and to quantify the uncertainties. In this talk, we will present various (faster than) realtime Scientific Deep Learning (SciDL) approaches for forward, inverse, and UQ problems. Both theoretical and numerical results for various problems including transport, heat, Burgers, (transonic and supersonic) Euler, and NavierStokes equations will be presented.

12/06/24  Seminario  16:00  17:00  1201 Dal Passo  Ko Sanders  FAU ErlangenNuremberg  On distributions of positive type and applications to QFT
When quantum fields are represented as operators on a Hilbert space, their twopoint distributions naturally give rise to distributions of positive type. A number of basic results on such distributions, especially for translation invariant twopoint distributions, have been known for a long time. E.g., the BochnerSchwartz Theorem fully characterises translation invariant distributions of positive type. In this talk I will present two apparently new results on distributions of positive type, one pertaining to pointwise products and the other to methods for cutting and pasting. Both results were motivated by physical questions and extend the toolbox of theoretical physics. I will present the results in a general mathematical context before discussing their applications to quantum energy inequalities and to separable states for a free scalar QFT.

07/06/24  Seminario  14:30  15:30  1201 Dal Passo  "Bundles on quantum projective varieties and their differential geometry" N.B.: this talk is part of the activity of the MIUR Excellence Department Project MatMod@TOV (CUP E83C23000330006)
We study quantum principal bundles on projective varieties using a sheaf theoretic approach. Differential calculi are introduced in this context. The main class of examples is given by covariant calculi over quantum flag manifolds, which we provide via an explicit Ore extension construction. We next introduce principal covariant calculi by requiring a local compatibility of the calculi on the total sheaf, base sheaf and the structure Hopf algebra in terms of exact sequences. The examples of principal (covariant) calculi on the quantum principal bundles SL_{q}(2,C) and GL_{q}(2,C) over the projective space P^{1}(C) are presented.
 
06/06/24  Seminario  14:30  15:30  1201 Dal Passo  John Pearson  University of Edinburgh  Recent Developments in the Numerical Solution of PDEConstrained Optimization Problems
Optimization problems subject to PDE constraints form a mathematical tool that can be applied to a wide range of scientific processes, including fluid flow control, medical imaging, option pricing, biological and chemical processes, and electromagnetic inverse problems, to name a few. These problems involve minimizing some function arising from a particular physical objective, while at the same time obeying a system of PDEs which describe the process. It is necessary to obtain accurate solutions to such problems within a reasonable CPU time, in particular for timedependent problems, for which the “allatonce” solution can lead to extremely large linear systems.
In this talk we consider iterative methods, in particular Krylov subspace methods, to solve such systems, accelerated by fast and robust preconditioning strategies. In particular, we will survey several new developments, including block preconditioners for fluid flow control problems, a circulant preconditioning framework for solving certain optimization problems constrained by fractional differential equations, and multiple saddlepoint preconditioners for block tridiagonal linear systems. We will illustrate the benefit of using these new approaches through a range of numerical experiments.
This talk is based on work with Santolo Leveque (Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa), Spyros Pougkakiotis (Yale University), Jacek Gondzio (University of Edinburgh), and Andreas Potschka (TU Clausthal).

06/06/24  Seminario  14:00  15:00  1101 D'Antoni  Lei Zhang  University of Florida  (Nota: Cambio di giorno, orario e aula) Asymptotic Analysis and Uniqueness of blowup solutions of nonquantized singular mean field equations
For singular mean field equations defined on a compact Riemann surface, we prove the uniqueness of bubbling solutions when blowup points are either regular points or nonquantized singular sources. In particular the uniqueness result covers the most general case extending or improving all previous works. For example, unlike previous results, we drop the assumption of singular sources being critical points of a suitably defined KirchoffRouth type functional. Our argument is based on refined estimates, robust and flexible enough to be applied to a wide range of problems requiring a delicate blowup analysis. In particular we come up with a major simplification of previous uniqueness proofs. This is a joint work with Daniele Bartolucci and Wen Yang.

04/06/24  Colloquium  14:30  15:30  1201 Dal Passo  “Supercritical KPZ equations”
Like many discrete statistical mechanics models, stochastic PDEs can exhibit a “critical dimension” beyond which their largescale behaviour is expected to be trivial (i.e. governed by Gaussian fluctuations). While such sweeping heuristics allow us to formulate rather precise conjectures, there are relatively few cases where these have actually been proven. In this talk, we will mainly focus on the KPZ equation, a standard model of interface fluctuations. There has recently been substantial progress in our mathematical understanding of its largescale behaviour in the supercritical regime.
 
29/05/24  Seminario  17:30  18:30  1201 Dal Passo  Claudio Dappiaggi  Università di Pavia  On the stochastic SineGordon model: an AQFT perspective
We investigate the massive SineGordon model in the finite ultraviolet regime on the twodimensional Minkowski spacetime with an additive Gaussian white noise. In particular we construct the expectation value and the correlation functions of a solution of the underlying stochastic partial differential equation (SPDE) as a power series in the coupling constant, proving ultimately uniform convergence. This result is obtained combining an approach to study SPDEs at a perturbative level which a recent analysis of the quantum sineGordon model using techniques proper of the perturbative, algebraic approach to quantum field theory (pAQFT). This is a joint work with A. Bonicelli and P. Rinaldi, https://arxiv.org/pdf/2311.01558

29/05/24  Seminario  16:00  17:00  1201 Dal Passo  Stefaan Vaes  KU Leuven  Ergodic states on type III_1 factors and ergodic actions
I will report on a joint work with Amine Marrakchi. Since the early days of TomitaTakesaki theory, it is known that a von Neumann algebra that admits a state with trivial centralizer must be a type III_1 factor, but the converse remained open. I will present a solution of this problem, proving that such ergodic states form a dense G_delta set among all normal states on any III_1 factor with separable predual. Through Connes' RadonNikodym cocycle theorem, this problem is related to the existence of ergodic cocycle perturbations for outer group actions, which I will discuss in the second half of the talk.
