14/12/20 | Seminario | 16:00 | 17:00 | Edoardo Persichetti | Florida Atalantic University | Code-based Cryptography and Post Quantum Standardization
Code-based cryptography has emerged as one of the strongest candidate to replace current cryptographic standards based on classical number theory problems such as RSA and El Gamal. In this talk, I will give an overview of the area, and describe some of my work towards the design of secure and efficient post-quantum primitives.

DinAmicI: Another Internet Seminar (DAI Seminar) Locating Ruelle-Pollicott resonances
- in streaming mode -
(see the instructions in the abstract)
We study the spectrum of transfer operators associated to various dynamical systems. Our aim is to obtain precise information on discrete spectrum. To this end we propose a unitary approach. We consider various settings where new information can be obtained following different branches along the proposed path. These settings include affine expanding Markov maps, uniformly expanding Markov maps, non-uniformly expanding maps, hyperbolic diffeomorphisms. We believe this to be the germ of a general theory. Joint work with O. Butterley and N. Kiamari.
Note:
The zoom link to the seminar will be posted on the DinAmicI website and on Mathseminars.org. Moreover, it will be also streamed live via the youtube DinAmicI channel.

03/12/20 | Colloquium | 16:00 | 17:00 | Andrei Okounkov | Columbia University (NY, USA) | Lie theory without groups
Lie theory, which deals with smooth groups of transformations, is one of the cornerstones of mathematics and has great importance for both theory and applications. It is also visibly limited, as the globe of Lie groups has been explored and inhabited. However, in recent years, some new geometric and algebraic structures have been recognized as being as good as Lie groups in every respect, including e.g. their contribution to the supply of special functions. My goal in this talk will be to explain where these new avenues of Lie theory lead.

26/11/20 | Seminario | 17:00 | 18:00 | Anna Miriam Benini | Università di Parma | DinAmicI: Another Internet Seminar (DAI Seminar) Infinite entropy for transcendental entire functions
- in streaming mode -
(see the instructions in the abstract)
Defining entropy on noncompact metric spaces is a tricky business, since there are several natural and nonequivalent generalizations of the usual notions of entropy for continuous maps on compact spaces. By defining entropy for transcendental maps on the complex plane as the sup over the entropy restricted to compact forward invariant subsets, we prove that with this definition the entropy of such functions is infinite. The proof relies on covering results which are distinctive to holomorphic maps.

26/11/20 | Seminario | 14:00 | 15:00 | Elsa Marchini | Politecnico di Milano | Minimal time optimal control for the moon lander problem We study a variant of the classical safe landing optimal control problem in aerospace, introduced by Miele in the Sixties, where the target was to land a spacecraft on the moon by minimizing the consumption of fuel. Assuming that the spacecraft has a failure and that the thrust (representing the control) can act in both vertical directions, the new target becomes to land safely by minimizing time, no matter of what the consumption is. In dependence of the initial data (height, velocity, and fuel), we prove that the optimal control can be of four different kinds, all being piecewise constant. Our analysis covers all possible situations, including the nonexistence of a safe landing strategy due to the lack of fuel or for heights/velocities for which also a total braking is insufficient to stop the spacecraft.

19/11/20 | Seminario | 14:00 | 15:00 | Sara Daneri | Gran Sasso Science Institute | Symmetry breaking for local/nonlocal interaction functionals
In this talk I will review some recent results obtained in collaboration with E. Runa and A. Kerschbaum on the one-dimensionality of the minimizers of a family of continuous local/nonlocal interaction functionals in general dimension. Such functionals have a local term, typically the perimeter or its Modica-Mortola approximation, which penalizes interfaces, and a nonlocal term favouring oscillations which are high in frequency and in amplitude. The competition between the two terms is expected by experiments and simulations to give rise to periodic patterns at equilibrium. Functionals of this type are used to model pattern formation, either in material science or in biology. The difficulty in proving the emergence of such structures is due to the fact that the functionals are symmetric with respect to permutation of coordinates, while minimizers are not.
We will present new techniques and results showing that for two classes of functionals (used to model generalized anti-ferromagnetic systems, respectively colloidal suspensions), both in sharp interface and in diffuse interface models, minimizers are one-dimensional and periodic, in general dimension.
In the discrete setting such results had been previously obtained for a smaller set of functionals with a different approach by Giuliani and Seiringer.

16/11/20 | Seminario | 14:00 | 15:00 | Isaia Nisoli | Universidade Federal de Rio de Janeiro (Brasile) | DinAmicI: Another Internet Seminar (DAI Seminar) A simple system presenting Noise Induced Order
- in streaming mode -
(see the instructions in the abstract)
In this talk I will present a family of one dimensional systems with random additive noise such that, as the noise size increases, the Lyapunov exponent of the stationary measure transitions from positive to negative. This phenomena is known in literature as Noise Induced Order, and was first observed in a model of the Belosouv-Zhabotinsky reaction and its existence was proven only recently by Galatolo-Monge-Nisoli. In the talk I will show how this phenomena is strictly connected with non-uniform hyperbolicity and the coexistence of regions of expansion and contraction in phase space; the result is attained through a result on the continuity of the Lyapunov exponent of the stationary measure with respect to the size of the noise.

12/11/20 | Seminario | 16:00 | 17:00 | Stefano Marò | Università di Pisa | DinAmicI: Another Internet Seminar (DAI Seminar) Chaotic motion in the breathing circle billiard
- in streaming mode -
(see the instructions in the abstract)
We consider the free motion of a point particle inside a circular billiard with periodically moving
boundary, with the assumption that the collisions of the particle with the boundary are elastic so that the
energy of the particle is not preserved. It is known that if the motion of the boundary is regular enough
then the energy is bounded due to the existence of invariant curves. We show that it is nevertheless possible
that the motion of the particle is chaotic, also under regularity assumptions for the moving boundary. More
precisely, we show that there exists a class of functions describing the motion of the boundary for which
the billiard map admits invariant probability measures with positive metric entropy. The proof relies on
variational techniques based on Aubry-Mather theory. Joint work with Claudio Bonanno.

12/11/20 | Seminario | 14:00 | 15:00 | Claudianor Alves | Università Federale di Campina Grande (Brasile) | Super-critical Neumann problems on unbounded domains In this paper, by making use of a new variational principle, we prove existence of nontrivial solutions for two different types of semilinear problems with Neumann boundary conditions in unbounded domains. Namely, we study elliptic equations and Hamiltonian systems on the unbounded domain $Omega=R^{m} imes B_r$ where $B_r$ is a ball centered at the origin with radius $r$ in $mathbb{R}^{n}$. Our proofs consist of several new and novel ideas that can be used in broader contexts. This is a joint work with Abbas Moameni that was accepted for publication in Nonlinearity.

08/07/20 | Seminario | 17:00 | 18:00 | Françoise Pène | Université de Bretagne Occidentale (France) | DinAmicI: Another Internet Seminar (DAI Seminar) Invariance by induction of the asymptotic variance
- in streaming mode -
(see the instructions in the abstract)
It is well known that the integral of an observable is preserved by induction. We are interested here in extensions of this result to moments of order 2 and 3. We have two natural candidates for the second and third order moments: the classical asymptotic variance (given by the Green-Kubo formula) and an analogous quantity of the third order. This question arises from the proof of CLT. In some cases, the asymptotic variance in the CLT can be expressed on the one hand in terms of the classical Green-Kubo formula and on the other hand in terms of the Green-Kubo formula for the induced system. Under general assumptions (involving transfer operators), we prove that the asymptotic variance is preserved by induction and that the natural third order quantity is preserved up to an error term.
This is joint work with Damien Thomine. Note: |
