Inequalities for Schwarz maps on matrix algebras

This talk will present joint work with Mueller-Hermes and Zhang in which duality is exploited to give simple proofs of known and new inequalities for Schwarz maps. It will be shown how these yield celebrated convexity and concavity theorems, such as those of Lieb and Epstein as simple corollaries. The ideas may be applied in a more elaborate operator algebra setting, but by presenting them in the matrix algebra setting, the talk will require no specialized knowledge as background.

Numerical examples illustrate the theoretical findings and investigate an adaptive approach for the computation of the time-dependent basis functions.

On the other hand, we will also briefly discuss the setting of spatially homogeneous, temporal multiscale coefficients. (Higher-order) multiscale expansions may help to interpret effective physical material properties and are numerically illustrated.

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Informatik]]>

In a "game show", a human composer competes against an AI composition in each of five chapters. The audience hears two versions per chapter and piece and chooses which piece was AI and which was human. The pieces are composed in the style of Bach, Chopin, Messiaen, Bartok, Brahms and are played by a human ensemble (the ensemble also does not know which is human and which is AI).

In collaboration with the composition classes of the Basel University of Music, outstanding students compose the "human" part; the well-known Latvian composer Platons Buravickis "creates" the AI compositions. Fascinating visual arts by Luca Scarzella and Michele Innocente will accompany the performance.

The performance will be moderated and complemented by scientific intermezzi in collaboration with the Responsible Digital Society RDS research network at the University of Basel. At the aperitif afterwards, scientists from AI ethicists to AI medical researchers will mingle with the audience and look forward to answering questions about artificial intelligence.

The event will be opened with a speech by Conradin Cramer, member of the cantonal government. Please scan the QR code at the entrance to the Voltahalle to take part in the voting via smartphone.

A big telescope and a big computer: how HPC and AI will enable next breakthroughs in our understanding of the Universe

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Informatik, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Perlenkolloquium]]>

More information here.

Abstract:

The upcoming mega-telescopes, such as European Space Agency’s recently launched Euclid satellite, and the upcoming radio Square Kilometer Array (SKA), will provide images of our universe over 10 billion years of cosmic history, and enable us to study its evolution with unprecedented level of detail. In the framework of simulations-based inference, the big telescopes deliver a throve of high-resolution observations and big computers provide the feature-rich numerical theory prediction. By using AI trained on simulations and performing inference on observations, we will be able us to differentiate between complex models of dark matter, dark energy, modified gravity, and astrophysics; a task unattainable by classical pen-and-paper analysis. This way, big computers paired with big telescopes will enable next breakthroughs in our understanding of the universe. In this talk, I will review the current and future applications of HPC and AI in cosmology in astrophysics, focusing on areas where they already play an indispensable role. I will also present a number of yet-unsolved problems in data science, the solutions to which are critical for enabling next generation measurements in cosmology.

Microscopic derivation of a nonlinear Schrödinger equation with a nonlinear point interaction in 1D]]>

We assume introducing a tiny impurity located at the origin and considering that the interaction between every pair of bosons is mediated by the impurity through a three-body interaction. Moreover, by assuming short-range scaling and choosing an initial fully condensed state, we prove convergence of one-particle density operators in the trace-class topology. This is the first derivation of the so-called nonlinear delta model. This research is a collaborative work with Prof. Riccardo Adami. ]]>

]]>A mean field planning approach to regularizations of the optimal transport problem

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Assuming the initial and terminal measures to have densities, we prove that the optimal curve remains positive and locally bounded in time. We focus on the case that the transport problem is set on a compact Riemannian manifold with Ricci curvature bounded below.

The approach follows ideas introduced by P.L. Lions in the theory of mean-field games about optimization problems with penalizing congestion terms. Crucial steps of our strategy include displacement convexity properties in the Eulerian approach and the analysis of distributional subsolutions to Hamilton-Jacobi equations.

The result provides a smooth approximation of Wasserstein-2 geodesics.

Harmonic Analysis meets Applications: Wavelet-based Function Spaces and Optimal Approximations of their Embeddings

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

In this lecture, we first review the Fourier analytic approach towards by now well-established (Besov and Triebel-Lizorkin) scales of distribution spaces that measure either isotropic or dominating-mixed regularity. In addition, we introduce new function spaces of hybrid smoothness which are able to simultaneously capture both types of regularity at the same time. As a further generalization of the aforementioned scales, they particularly include standard Sobolev spaces on domains. On the other hand, our new spaces yield an appropri- ate framework to study break-of-scale embeddings by means of harmonic analysis. We shall present (non-)adaptive wavelet-based multiscale algorithms that approximate such embed- dings at optimal dimension-independent rates of convergence. Important special cases cover the approximation of functions having dominating-mixed Sobolev smoothness w.r.t. Lp in the norm of the (isotropic) energy space H1.

The talk is based on a recent paper [1] which represents the first part of a joint work with Glenn Byrenheid (FSU Jena), Markus Hansen (PU Marburg), and Janina Hübner (RU Bochum).

A Kernel-based Multilevel Approximation Method for Higher-Dimensional Problems on Sparse Grids

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

In machine learning, support vector machines heavily rely on RKHSs. For neural networks Barron spaces are connected to certain RKHSs and offer a possibility for a theoretical analysis of these networks.

Another application of RKHSs is in high(er)-dimensional approximation. For instance in the field of quasi Monte-Carlo methods, kernel-techniques are used to derive an error analysis for high-dimensional quadrature rules. We also developed a novel kernel-based approximation method for higher-dimensional meshfree function reconstruction, based on Smolyak operators.

In this talk I will provide an introduction into the theory of RKHSs, their kernels and associated kernel methods. In particular, I will focus on a multiscale approximation scheme for rescaled radial basis functions. This method will then be used to derive the new tensor product multilevel method for higher- dimensional meshfree approximation, which I will discuss in detail.

In this talk we present enhancement strategies of such ensemble methods based on sample enrichment and homotopy formalism, that ultimately lead to time-dependent drift terms that possible assimilate a larger class of target distributions while providing faster mixing times.

Furthermore, we present an alternative route to construct time-inhomogeneous drift terms based on reverse Diffusion processes that are popular in state-of-the-art Generative Modelling such as Diffusion maps. Here, we propose learning these log-densities by propagation of the target distribution through an Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process. For this, we solve the associated Hamilton-Jabobi-Bellman equation through an adaptive explicit Euler discretization using low-rank compression such as functional Tensor Trains for the spatial discretization.

Upper bounds on the ground state energy of dilute hard-core bosons

We present a new upper bound for a dilute gas of hard core bosons in the thermodynamic limit, where the number of particles and the size of the box are sent to infinity while keeping the density fixed. Our result resolves the ground state energy up to an error of the order of the sub-leading correction. We also discuss the Gross-Pitaevskii regime, in which N hard spheres with radius of order 1/N move on the unit torus; in this setting, we show an upper bound for the energy, capturing the correct second order correction.

In this colloquium, Dr. McGilchrist will discuss the implications of his lateralization hypothesis on our approach to basic research, particularly in the life sciences. This will be followed by a round table discussion with Professor Cristina Granziera of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, and Professor Philipp Sterzer at the Psychiatric Hospital UPK.

Dr. McGilchrist will also be speaking in Geneva on May 8th at IdeaSquare (CERN) and May 9th at The Fab (the Graduate Institute).

]]>The cold-plasma model and simulation of wave propagation using B-Spline Finite Elements

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

This model has applications in magnetic confinement fusion devices, like the Tokamak. Namely, electromagnetic waves are used to heat up the plasma (Electron cyclotron resonance heating (ECRH)) or for interferometry and reflectometry diagnostics (to measure plasma density and position, etc.).

In the first part of this talk, we introduce the cold-plasma model, together with a qualitative study of the plasma modes which expose the complexity of the problem.

In the second part, we describe the problem and the simplifications we carry out, which yield the indefinite Helmholtz equation. It is solved with B-Spline Finite Elements provided by the Psydac library and some results are shown. Lastly, we discuss the performance and potential ways of preconditioning.

A least squares Hessian/Gradient recovery method for fully nonlinear PDEs in Hamilton–Jacobi–Bellman form (joint work wit Amireh Mousavi)

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

This idea allows the creation of efficient solvers for fully nonlinear elliptic equations, the linearization of which leaves us with an equation in nondivergence form. An important class of fully nonlinear elliptic PDEs can be written in Hamilton--Jacobi--Bellman (Dynamic Programming) form, i.e., as the supremum of a collection of linear operators acting on the unkown.

The least-squares FEM approach, a variant of the nonvariational finite element method, is based on gradient or Hessian recovery and allows the use of FEMs of arbitrary degree. The price to pay for using higher order FEMs is the loss of discrete-level monotonicity (maximum principle), which is valid for the PDE and crucial in proving the convergence of many degree one FEM and finite difference schemes.

Suitable functional spaces and penalties in the least-squares's cost functional must be carefully crafted in order to ensure stability and convergence of the scheme with a good approximation of the gradient (or Hessian) under the Cordes condition on the family of linear operators being optimized.

Furthermore, the nonlinear operator which is not necessarily everywhere differentiable, must be linearized in appropriate functional spaces using semismooth Newton or Howard's policy iteration method. A crucial contribution of our work, is the proof of convergence of the semismooth Newton method at the continuum level, i.e., on infinite dimesional functionals spaces. This allows an easy use of our non-monotone schemes which provides convergence rates as well as a posteriori error estimates.

Singular Stochastic PDEs

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

∂_{t}u = △u + F (u, ∂_{x}u, ξ),

where ξ is an irregular driving noise, arise in a variety of situations from quantum field theory to probability. After introducing some specific examples, we describe the main difficulty they share; they are singular due to the irregularity of the driving noise ξ.

In the first part of the talk we discuss a simple example where using the so-called “Da Prato-Debusche trick” is sufficient to deal with this difficulty. In the second half, we give a birds-eye view on how regularity structures provide a solution theory for such equations. In particular, we explain the role of subcriticality (super-renormalisability) and (half) Feynman diagrams in this theory. Lastly, we shall mention some recent results on the class of differential operators that are compatible with this general machinery and how this relates to the geometry of the underlying space.

Colloquium by Prof. Henning Müller followed by an Apéro

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Informatik]]>

This presentation will summarize the main work done in the research group of Henning Müller at the HES-SO Valais in Sierre on medical multimodal data analysis. This work ranges from image creation differences, to biomarker extraction from radiology and histopathology images towards clinical decision support. An essential part of integrating the mainly deep learning based approaches is to be able to explain decisions and predictions, whereas deep learning networks are usually black boxes.

All these aspects can help to create a digital view on patients where several options for prevention or treatment can be adapted interactively. This is also name digital twins in industry and is a concept that we expect to become more common in the medical field when longitudinal data on patients is available.

__Biography:__

Henning Müller studied medical informatics at the University of Heidelberg, Germany, then worked at Daimler-Benz research in Portland, OR, USA. From 1998-2002 he worked on his PhD degree in computer vision at the University of Geneva, Switzerland with a research stay at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. Since 2002, Henning has been working for the medical informatics service at the University Hospital of Geneva. Since 2007, he has been a full professor at the HES-SO Valais and since 2011 he is responsible for the eHealth unit of the school. Since 2014, he is also professor at the medical faculty of the University of Geneva. In 2015/2016 he was on sabbatical at the Martinos Center, part of Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA, USA to focus on research activities. Henning is coordinator of the ExaMode EU project, was coordinator of the Khresmoi EU project, scientific coordinator of the VISCERAL EU project. Since early 2020 he is also a member of the Swiss National Research Council.

T-coercivity: a practical tool for the study of variational formulations

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

In this talk, I will focus on an approach that is completely equivalent to the inf-sup condition for problems set in Hilbert spaces, the **T-coercivity approach**. This approach relies on the design of an *explicit* operator to realize the inf-sup condition. If the operator is carefully chosen, it can provide useful insight for a straightforward definition of the approximation of the exact problem. As a matter of fact, the derivation of the discrete inf-sup condition often becomes elementary, at least when one considers conforming methods, that is when the discrete spaces are subspaces of the exact Hilbert spaces. In this way, both the exact and the approximate problems are considered, analysed and solved at once.

In itself, T-coercivity is not a new theory, however it seems that some of its strengths have been overlooked, and that, if used properly, it can be a simple, yet powerful tool to analyse and solve linear PDEs. In particular, it provides guidelines such as, which abstract tools and which numerical methods are the most “natural” to analyse and solve the problem at hand. In other words, it allows one to select simply appropriate tools in the mathematical, or numerical, toolboxes. This claim will be illustrated on classical linear PDEs, and for some generalizations of those models.

Nebst dem Lesen und Schreiben wird auch das Programmieren im Bildungswesen bald den Stellenwert einer Grundfertigkeit haben, die alle Schülerinnen und Schüler im Rahmen der allgemeinen Bildung erlernen sollten. Dabei werden Fähigkeiten wie Kreativität und konstruktives Problemlösen gefördert, die wichtige Voraussetzungen sind, um sich in den noch ungewissen Berufen der Zukunft behaupten zu können. Wie aber sollen Kinder im Primarschulalter programmieren lernen ohne fliessend Lesen und Schreiben zu können? Wie gelingt der Übergang von den verspielten block-basierten Programmiersprachen ins „echte“ Programmieren? Und wie geht man damit um, dass das Programmieren eine äusserst fehleranfällige Lern-Aktivität ist? Dank geeigneter Unterrichtsmaterialien und Lernumgebungen ist es möglich, das Programmieren parallel zu den anderen Grundfertigkeiten zu erlernen, fächerübergreifende Synergieeffekte zu nutzen und grundlegende Programmierkonzepte über viele Jahre kontinuierlich zu festigen. Wir präsentieren unser Spiralcurriculum und die dazugehörige Lernumgebung XLogoOnline.

Jacqueline Staub ist eine Schweizer Informatikerin, die international bekannt ist für die Leitung in der Entwicklung der pädagogischen Programmierumgebung "XLogoOnline".

Determination of a learnt best basis for two geoscientific inverse problems

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Traditionally, an approximation of such a linear(ized) inverse problem is obtained in one, a-priori chosen basis system: either a global one, e.g. spherical harmonics or polynomials on the ball, or a local one, e.g. radial basis functions and wavelets on the sphere or finite elements on the ball.

In the Geomathematics Group Siegen, we developed methods that enable us to combine different types of trial functions for such an approximation. The idea is to make the most of the benefits of different types of available trial functions. The algorithms are called the (Learning) Inverse Problem Matching Pursuits (LIPMPs). They construct an approximation iteratively from an intentionally overcomplete set of trial functions, the dictionary, such that the Tikhonov functional is reduced. Due to the learning add-on, the dictionary can very well be infinite. Moreover, the computational costs are usually decreased.

In this talk, we give details on the LIPMPs and show some current numerical results.

Given a set E in R^d with finite volume, is it possible to find an hyperplane P that cuts E in two parts with equal volume, and such that the area of the cut (that is, the intersection of P and E) is of the expected order, namely (vol(E))^{1−1/d}?

We can show that this question, even in a stronger form, has a positive answer if the dimension d is 3 or higher.But, interestingly enough, our proof breaks down completely in dimension d=2, and we do not know the answer in this case (but we know that the answer is positive if we allow cuts that are not exactly planar, but close to planar). It turns out that this question has some interesting connection with the Kakeya problem.

Riccati-Feedback Stabilization of Optimal Control Problems with PDE Constraints

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

On the other hand, the linear-quadratic regulator problem in system theory is an approach to make a dynamical system react to perturbation via feedback controls that can be expressed by the solutions of matrix Riccati equations. It’s applicability is limited by the linearity of the dynamical system and the efficient solvability of the quadratic matrix equation.

In this talk, we discuss how certain classes of non-stationary PDEs can be reformulated (after spatial semi-discretization) into structured linear dynamical systems that allow the Riccati feedback to be computed. This allows us to combine both approaches and thus steer solutions of perturbed PDEs back to the optimized trajectories. The key to efficient solvers for the Riccati equations is the usage of the specific structure in the problems and the fact that the Riccati solutions usually feature a strong singular value decay, and thus good low-rank approximability.

On integers which are(n't) the sum of two rational cubes

Tags: TAG Events Zahlentheorie, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

I will explain joint work with Bhargava and Shnidman in which we show:

1. At least a sixth of integers are not the sum of two rational cubes,

and

2. At least a sixth of odd integers are the sum of two rational cubes!

(--- with 2. relying on new 2-converse results of Burungale-Skinner.)

The basic principle is that "there aren't even enough 2-Selmer elements to go around" to contradict e.g. 1., and we show this by using the circle method "inside" the usual geometry of numbers argument applied to a particular coregular representation. Even then the resulting constant isn't small enough to conclude 1., so we use the clean form of root numbers in the family x^3 + y^3 = n and the p-parity theorem of Nekovar/Dokchitser-Dokchitser to succeed.

Linear Divisibility sequences

In a sequence of papers in the 1930s, Marshall Hall further developed several of Lucas' themes, including studying and trying to classify third order linear divisibility sequences; that is, linear recurrences like the Fibonacci numbers which have the additional property that $F_m$ divides $F_n$ whenever $m$ divides $n$. Because of many special cases, Hall was unable to even conjecture what a general theorem should look like, and despite developments over the years by various authors, such as Lehmer, Morgan Ward, van der Poorten, Bezivin, Petho, Richard Guy, Hugh Williams,... with higher order linear divisibility sequences, even the formulation of the classification has remained mysterious.

In this talk we present our ongoing efforts to classify all linear divisibility sequences, the key new input coming from a wonderful application of the Schmidt/Schlickewei subspace theorem from the theory of diophantine approximation, due to Corvaja and Zannier.

Structure-Preserving Model Reduction for Symmetric Second-Order Systems

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Our method guarantees to preserve passivity of the reduced-order model as well as the positive definiteness of the mass and stiffness matrices and admits an a priori gap metric error bound.

Our construction of the second-order reduced model is based on the consideration of an internal symmetry structure and the invariant zeros of the system and their sign-characteristics for which we derive a normal form.

The results are available in [1].

]]>The isoperimetric problem on spaces with curvature bounded from below

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

When the space is compact, the existence of isoperimetric regions for every volume is established through a simple application of the direct method of Calculus of Variations. In the noncompact case, part of the mass could be lost at infinity in the minimization process. Such a mass can be recovered in isoperimetric regions sitting in limits at infinity of the space. Following this heuristics, and building on top of results by Ritoré--Rosales and Nardulli, I will state a generalized existence result for the isoperimetric problem on Riemannian manifolds with Ricci curvature bounded from below and a uniform bound from below on the volumes of unit balls. The main novelty in such an approach is the use of the synthetic theory of curvature bounds to describe in a rather natural way where the mass is lost at infinity. Later, I will use the latter described generalized existence result to prove new existence criteria for the isoperimetric problem on manifolds with nonnegative Ricci curvature. In particular, I will show that on a complete manifold with nonnegative sectional curvature and Euclidean volume growth at infinity, isoperimetric regions exist for every sufficiently big volume. Time permitting, I will describe some forthcoming works and some open problems.

This talk is based on several papers and ongoing collaborations with E. Bruè, M. Fogagnolo, S. Nardulli, E. Pasqualetto, M. Pozzetta, and D. Semola. ]]>

Positivity Preserving Limiters for Time-Implicit Higher Order Accurate Discontinuous Galerkin Discretizations

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

In this presentation, we will discuss a different approach to ensure that a higher order accurate DG solution satisfies the positivity constraints. Instead of using a limiter, we impose the positivity constraints directly on the algebraic equations resulting from a higher order accurate time-implicit DG discretization using techniques from mathematical optimization theory. This approach ensures that the positivity constraints are satisfied and does not affect the higher order accuracy of the time-implicit DG discretization. The resulting algebraic equations are then solved using a specially designed semi-smooth Newton method that is well suited to deal with the resulting nonlinear complementarity problem. We will demonstrate the algorithm on several parabolic model problems.

Scales of Knowledge - Multilevel Minimization in Scientific Computing and Machine Learning

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Traditional multilevel decompositions are the basic ingredient of the most efficient class of solution methods for linear systems, i.e. of multigrid methods, which allow to solve certain classes of linear systems with optimal complexity. The transfer of these concepts to non-linear problems, however, is not straightforward, neither in terms of the design of the multilevel decomposition nor in terms of convergence properties. In this talk, we will discuss multilevel decompositions for convex, non-convex and possibly non-smooth minimization problems. We will discuss in detail how multilevel optimization methods can be constructed and analyzed and we will illustrate the sometimes significant gain in performance, which can be achieved by multilevel minimization techniques. Examples from mechanics, geophysics, and machine learning will illustrate our discussion.

Randomness

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events Zahlentheorie]]>

Humanity has pondered the meaning and utility of randomness for millennia.

There is a remarkable variety of ways in which we utilize perfect coin tosses to our advantage: in statistics, cryptography, game theory, algorithms, gambling... Indeed, randomness seems indispensable! Which of these applications survive if the universe had no (accessible) randomness in it at all? Which of them survive if only poor quality randomness is available, e.g. that arises from somewhat "unpredictable" phenomena like the weather or the stock market?

A computational theory of randomness, developed in the past several decades, reveals (perhaps counter-intuitively) that very little is lost in such deterministic or weakly random worlds. In the talk I'll explain the main ideas and results of this theory, notions of pseudo-randomness, and connections to computational intractability.

It is interesting that Number Theory played an important role throughout this development. It supplied problems whose algorithmic solution make randomness seem powerful, problems for which randomness can be eliminated from such solutions, and problems where the power of randomness remains a major challenge for computational complexity theorists and mathematicians. I will use these problems (and others) to demonstrate aspects of this theory.

]]>Boltzmann-Grad limit of a hard sphere system in a box with diffusive boundary conditions]]>

In its formal derivation Boltzmann supposed that two different particles are almost independent, so the probability of having two particles at the same place is the the product of probability. The validity of such equation is *a priori *not clear since it adds some irreversibly that does not exist in the hard sphere model.

Lanford solved the problem in its ‘75 paper: Boltzmann’s equation is true, up to a time independent of the number of particles (however each particle will have in mean less than one collision).

Now comes the question of the boundary. We expect to find some “Lanfords” theorem even if we add some boundary condition. A first example are the specular reflections, for a deterministic law. An other example, which would be very important in physics, is the evolution of a gas between two hot plaques. Then the reflection condition is stochastic. I am interested in a third type of reflection, also stochastic, which is a modeling of a rough boundary.

During my talk I will present some ideas of the proof of Boltzmann in the torus R^3/Z^3 and the adaptation in the case of a domain with boundaries.

Semiclassical limit for almost fermionic anyons]]>

Quasi-particles obeying such statistics can be described as ordinary bosons and fermions with magnetic interactions.

We study a limit situation where the statistics/magnetic interaction is seen as a “perturbation from the fermionic end”.

We vindicate a mean-field approximation, proving that the ground state of a gas of anyons is described to leading order by a semi-classical, Vlasov-like, energy functional.

The ground state of the latter displays anyonic behavior in its momentum distribution. After introducing and stating this result I will give elements of proof based on coherent states,

On Arithmetic Dynamical Systems]]>

Nonlinear acoustics: time integration, optimization, and open domain problems

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

- absorbing boundary conditions for the treatment of open domain problems;
- optimization tasks for ultrasound focusing.

Strictly speaking, acoustic sound propagation takes place in full space or at least in a domain that is typically much larger than the region of interest Ω. To restrict attention to a bounded domain Ω, e.g, for computational purposes, artificial reflections on the boundary ∂Ω have to be avoided. This can be done by imposing so-called absorbing boundary conditions ABC that induce dissipation of outgoing waves. Here it will turn out to be crucial to take into account nonlinearity of the PDE also in these ABC. This is joint work with Igor Shevchenko (Imperial College London).

In the context of applications in HIFU, focusing of nonlinearly propagating waves amounts to optimization problems. The design of ultrasound excitation via piezoelectric transducers leads to a boundary control problem; focusing high intensity ultrasound by a silicone lens requires shape optimization. For both problem classes, we will discuss the derivation of gradient information in order to formulate optimality conditions and drive numerical optimization methods.

]]>Bosons in a double well: two-mode approximation and fluctuations]]>

The leading-order physics is governed by a Bose-Hubbard Hamiltonian coupling two low-energy modes, each supported in the bottom of one well. Fluctuations beyond these two modes are ruled by two independent Bogoliubov Hamiltonians, one for each well.

Our main result is that the variance of the number of particles in the low-energy modes is suppressed. This is a violation of the Central Limit Theorem which holds in the occurrence of Bose-Einstein condensation, and therefore it signals that particles develop correlations in the ground state. We achieve our result by proving a precise energy expansion in term of Bose-Hubbard and Bogoliubov energies.

Multilevel Scheduling of Computations on Parallel Large-scale Systems

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Informatik]]>

Understanding the relation between different scheduling levels is crucial for solving the aforementioned research question. However, it is challenging due to (1) the absence of methods, models, and tools to examine and analyze the interaction and the mutual impact of these scheduling levels, and (2) the different nature and performance targets of each of these scheduling levels. This doctoral dissertation addresses these challenges in the context of two specific HPC scheduling classes: queuing-based job scheduling at the batch level and dynamic loop self-scheduling (DLS) at the application level. One of the main contributions of this doctoral dissertation is proposing and evaluating a multilevel scheduling (MLS) prototype that effectively solves the problem by bridging the schedulers at different scheduling levels. The MLS prototype aims to (1) decrease applications’ execution time and (2) increase system utilization. The MLS prototype employs two novel scheduling approaches introduced in this doctoral dissertation. The first approach is the distributed chunk calculation approach (DCA) and its hierarchical version (HDCA). The second approach is the resourceful coordination approach (RCA).

At the application level, the DCA and HDCA address the scalability challenge of existing DLS implementations. We apply DCA and HDCA to several state-of-the-art DLS techniques, and show how they benefit applications’ execution time; therefore, fulfilling the MLS prototype’s first target. At the batch level, the RCA enables application schedulers to share their allocated but idle computing resources with other applications through a batch system. The significance of RCA is that it leverages and combines the advantages of node sharing and dynamic resource management. It offers efficient resource sharing and avoids shrinkage and expansion operations at the application side. RCA allows batch systems to reassign computing resources once they become free; therefore, fulfilling the MLS prototype’s second target. By employing DCA and RCA, the MLS prototype answers the aforementioned research question and shows a creative and useful way for exploiting the multilevel parallelism of modern HPC systems through scheduling.

This doctoral dissertation advances the state-of-the-art by demonstrating the usefulness and the performance potential of coordinated scheduling decisions at different levels. Moreover, this doctoral dissertation introduces certain methods and tools that allow the HPC community to analyze the mutual impact of scheduling decisions at different scheduling levels.

]]>High-regularity Invariant Measures for 2d and 3d Euler Equations and Growth of the Sobolev Norms

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

In this talk, I will present some results obtained in this direction. We will construct invariant measures for the 2d Euler equation at high regularity ($H^s$, $s>2$) and prove that on the support of the measure, Sobolev norms do not grow faster than polynomially.

Refining the method allows to construct an invariant measure to the 3d Euler equations at high regularity ($H^s$, $s>7/2$) and thus construct

global dynamics on the support of the measure, exhibiting at most polynomial growth.

Finally, it time permits we will discuss the properties of the measures constructed. ]]>

Asymptotic expansion of low-energy excitations for weakly interacting bosons

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

We consider a system of N bosons in the mean-field scaling regime in an external trapping potential. We derive an asymptotic expansion of the low-energy eigenstates and the corresponding energies, which provides corrections to Bogoliubov theory to any order in 1/N. We show that the structure of the ground state and of the non-degenerate low-energy eigenstates is preserved by the dynamics if

the external trap is switched off. This talk is based on joint works with Sören Petrat, Peter Pickl, Robert Seiringer, and Avy Soffer (arXiv:1912.11004 and arXiv:2006.09825).

Uniqueness and global convergence for a discretized inverse coefficient problem

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

We then demonstrate that this result can be used to prove uniqueness, stability and global convergence for an inverse coefficient problem with finitely many measurements. We consider the problem of determining an unknown inverse Robin transmission coefficient in an elliptic PDE. Using a relation to monotonicity and localized potentials techniques, we show that a piecewise-constant coefficient on an a-priori known partition with a-priori known bounds is uniquely determined by finitely many boundary measurements and that it can be uniquely and stably reconstructed by a globally convergent Newton iteration. We derive a constructive method to identify these boundary measurements, calculate the stability constant and give a numerical example.

]]>Existence of weak solutions and incompressible limit for quantum Navier-Stokes equations

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

First, we prove global existence of finite energy weak solutions (FEWS) in dimension two and three. To compensate for the lack of control of the velocity field around vacuum regions, we construct approximate solutions to a truncated formulation of (QNS) on a sequence of invading domains. Suitable compactness properties are inferred from the Bresch-Desjadins entropy estimates. This is joint work with P. Antonelli and S. Spirito.

Second, we address the low Mach number limit for FEWS to the (QNS) system (in collaboration with P. Antonelli and P. Marcati). The main novelty is a precise analysis of the acoustic dispersion altered by the presence of the dispersive capillarity tensor. The linearised system is governed by the Bogoliubov dispersion relation. The desired decay of the acoustic part follows from refined Strichartz estimates.

This talk provides an introduction to the formulation and solution of optimal control problems governed by the Liouville equation and related models.

For this purpose, expected-value cost functionals are considered that include attracting potentials and different costs of the controls, whereas the control mechanism in the governing models is part of the drift or is included in a collision term.

In this talk, theoretical and numerical results concerning ensemble optimal control problems with Liouville, Fokker-Planck and linear Boltzmann equations are presented.

Iterative Methods for Linear Systems over two Centuries

Tags: TAG Events Perlenkolloquium, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

Iterative methods for linear systems were invented for the same reasons as they are used today, namely to reduce computational cost. Gauss states in a letter to his friend Gerling in 1823: "you will in the future hardly eliminate directly, at least not when you have more than two unknowns". Richardson's paper from 1910 was then very influential, and is a model of a modern numerical analysis paper: modeling, discretization, approximate solution of the discrete problem, and a real application. More general vector extrapolation methods were then introduced and studied in the pioneering work of Bresinzki, and they can be shown to be equivalent to Krylov method. It was however the work of Stiefel, Hestenes and Lanczos in the early 1950 that sparked the success story of Krylov methods with the invention of the conjugate gradient method, and there are now many Krylov methods to choose from. For general linear systems, they come in two main classes, the ones that minimize the residual in a Krylov space, and the ones that make the residual orthogonal to it. This will bring us finally to the modern iterative methods for solving partial differential equations, which also come in two main classes: domain decomposition methods and multigrid methods. Domain decomposition methods go back to the alternating Schwarz method invented by Herman Amandus Schwarz in 1869 to close a gap in the proof of Riemann's famous Mapping Theorem. Multigrid goes back to the seminal work by Fedorenko in 1961, with main contributions by Brandt and Hackbusch in the Seventies.

High order finite element discretizations of Helmholtz problems

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

It has received much attention since it is widely employed in applications,

but still challenging to numerically simulate in the high-frequency regime.

In this seminar, we focus on acoustic waves for the sake of simplicity

and consider finite element discretizations. The main goal of the

presentation is to highlight the improved performance of high order

methods (as compared to linear finite elements) when the frequency is large.

We will very briefly cover the zero-frequency case, that corresponds to the well-studied Poisson equation. We take advantage of this classical setting to recall central concepts of the finite element theory such as quasi-optimality and interpolation error.

The second part of the seminar is devoted to the high-frequency case.

We show that without restrictive assumptions on the mesh size,

the finite element method is unstable, and quasi-optimality is lost.

We provide a detailed analysis, as well as numerical examples, which

show that higher order methods are less affected by this phenomena,

and thus more suited to discretize high-frequency problems.

Before drawing our main conclusions, we briefly discuss advanced topics,

such as the use of unfitted meshes in highly heterogeneous media

and mesh refinements around re-entrant corners.

On error estimates for optimal control problems with functions of bounded variation

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

We consider a convex optimal control problem governed by a partial differential equation in one space dimension which is controlled by a right-hand-side living in the space of functions with bounded variation. These functions tend to favor optimal controls that are piecewise constant with often finitely many jump poins. We are interested in deriving finite element discretization error estimates for the controls when the state ist discretized with usual piecewise linear finite elements, and the controls is either variationally discrete or piecwise constant. Due to the structure of the objective function, usual techniques for estimating the control error cannot be applied. Instead, these have to be derived from (suboptimal) error estimates for the state, which can later be improved.

Multirate explicit stabilized integrators for stiff differential equations

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

The efficiency of these methods deteriorates as the system becomes stiffer, even if stiffness is induced by only few degrees of freedom. In the framework of discretized parabolic PDEs, the number of function evaluations has to be chosen inversely proportional to the smallest element size in order to achieve stability, thus largely wasting computational resources on locally-refined meshes. We first tackle this issue by replacing the right hand side of the PDE with an averaged force, which is obtained by damping the high modes down using the dissipative effect of the equation itself and which is cheap to evaluate. Combining RKC methods with the averaged force we give rise to multirate RKC schemes, for which the number of expensive function evaluations is independent of the small elements' size.

The stability properties of our method are demonstrated on a model problem and numerical experiments confirm that the stability bottleneck caused by a few of fine mesh elements can be overcome without sacrificing accuracy.

C^0-closedness of the set of symplectomorphisms, spherical symplectic nonsqueezing, and holomorphic maps

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Symplectic geometry originated from classical mechanics, where the canonical symplectic form on phase space appears in Hamilton's equation. A (smooth) diffeomorphism on a symplectic manifold is called a symplectomorphism iff it preserves the symplectic form. This happens iff the diffeomorphism solves a certain inhomogeneous quadratic first order system of PDE's. In classical mechanics symplectomorphisms play the role of canonical transformations.

A famous result by Eliashberg and Gromov states that the set of symplectomorphisms is $C^0$-closed in the set of all diffeomorphisms. This is remarkable, since in general, the $C^0$-limit of a sequence of solutions of a first order system of PDE's need not solve the system. A well-known proof of the Eliashberg-Gromov theorem is based on Gromov's symplectic nonsqueezing theorem for balls.

In my talk I will sketch this proof. Furthermore, I will present a symplectic nonsqueezing result for spheres that sharpens Gromov's theorem. The proof of this result is based on the existence of a holomorphic map from the (real) two-dimensional unit disk to a certain symplectic manifold, satisfying some Lagrangian boundary condition. Such a map solves the Cauchy-Riemann equation for a certain almost complex structure. ]]>

Tensor B-Spline Numerical Method for PDEs: a High Performance Approach

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Informatik]]>

ABSTRACT:

Solutions of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) form the basis of many mathematical models

in physics and medicine. In this work, a novel Tensor B-spline methodology for numerical

solutions of linear second-order PDEs is proposed. The methodology applies the B-spline

signal processing framework and computational tensor algebra in order to construct high-

performance numerical solvers for PDEs. The method allows high-order approximations, is

mesh-free, matrix-free and computationally and memory efficient.

The first chapter introduces the main ideas of the Tensor B-spline method, depicts the main

contributions of the thesis and outlines the thesis structure.

The second chapter provides an introduction to PDEs, reviews the numerical methods for

solving PDEs, introduces splines and signal processing techniques with B-splines, and describes

tensors and the computational tensor algebra.

The third chapter describes the principles of the Tensor B-spline methodology. The main

aspects are 1) discretization of the PDE variational formulation via B-spline representation

of the solution, the coefficients, and the source term, 2) introduction to the tensor B-spline

kernels, 3) application of tensors and computational tensor algebra to the discretized variational

formulation of the PDE, 4) tensor-based analysis of the problem structure, 5) derivation of

the efficient computational techniques, and 6) efficient boundary processing and numerical

integration procedures.

The fourth chapter describes 1) different computational strategies of the Tensor B-spline

solver and an evaluation of their performance, 2) the application of the method to the forward

problem of the Optical Diffusion Tomography and an extensive comparison with the state-

of-the-art Finite Element Method on synthetic and real medical data, 3) high-performance

multicore CPU- and GPU-based implementations, and 4) the solution of large-scale problems

on hardware with limited memory resources.

The talk is open to members of the university.

]]>Recent results on singular limits for Vlasov-Poisson

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

The Vlasov-Poisson system is a kinetic equation that models collisionless plasma. A plasma has a characteristic scale called the Debye length, which is typically much shorter than the scale of observation. In this case the plasma is called ‘quasineutral’. This motivates studying the limit in which the ratio between the Debye length and the observation scale tends to zero. Under this scaling, the formal limit of the Vlasov-Poisson system is the Kinetic Isothermal Euler system.

The Vlasov-Poisson system itself can formally be derived as the limit of a system of ODEs describing the dynamics of a system of N interacting particles, as the number of particles approaches infinity. The rigorous justification of this mean field limit remains a fundamental open problem.

In this talk we present how the mean field and quasineutral limits can be combined to derive the Kinetic Isothermal Euler system from a regularised particle model.

Quantitative seismic imaging using reciprocity waveform inversion with arbitrary probing sources

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

We investigate the deployment of new devices developed in the acoustic setting: the dual-sensors, which are able to capture both the pressure field and the vertical velocity of the waves. For solving the inverse problem, we define a new cost function, adapted to these two types of data and based upon the reciprocity. We first note that the stability of the problem can be shown to be Lipschitz, assuming piecewise linear parameters. In addition, reciprocity waveform inversion allows a separation between the observational and numerical acquisitions. In fact, the numerical sources do not have to coincide with the observational ones, offering new possibilities to create adapted computational acquisitions, consequently reducing the numerical cost. We illustrate our approach with three-dimensional medium reconstructions, where we start with minimal information on the target models. We also extend the methodology for elasticity.

Eventually, if time allows, we shall explore the model representation in numerical seismic inversion, where the adaptive eigenspace method appears as a promising approach to have a compromise between number of unknowns and resolution.

The degree of a map between two spheres of same dimension can be estimated by Sobolev norm of said map (of the right class).

The Local Density Approximation in Density Functional Theory

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Density Functional Theory (DFT) is the main method used in practical computations to approximate solutions of the many-body Schrödinger equation. The main idea is to express everything in terms of the one-particle density instead of the many-body wave function. The Local Density Approximation (LDA) is the simplest nonlinear functional used in this context and it has played a central role in the construction of better empirical approximations since the 60s.

In this talk I will first explain what DFT and LDA are. I will then give the first rigorous justification of the LDA. More precisely, I will show that the exact Levy-Lieb functional of DFT converges to the LDA in the limit of very flat densities. Joint work with Elliott H. Lieb (Princeton) and Robert Seiringer (IST Austria).

Some recent results on the approximation of conservation laws: revisiting the notion of conservation

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

However, this is not the end of the story. All these works use a one dimensional way of thinking: the main player is the normal flux across cell interfaces. In addition there are several excellent numerical methods that do not fit the form of the lax Wendroff theorem.

In that talk, I will introduce a more general setting and show that any reasonable scheme for conservation law can be put in that framework. In addition, I will show that an equivalent flux formulation, with a suitable definition of what is a flux, can be explicitly constructed (and computed), so that any reasonable scheme can be put in a finite volume form.

I will end the talk by showing some applications: how to systematically construct entropy stable scheme, or starting from the non conservative form of a system-say the Euler equations-, how to construct a suitable discretisation. And more.

A distributional approach to fractional Sobolev spaces and fractional variation

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Somewhat surprisingly, the first appearance of the concept of a fractional derivative is found in a letter written to de l'Hôpital by Leibniz in 1695. Since then, Fractional Calculus has fascinated generations of mathematicians and several definitions of fractional derivatives have appeared. In more recent years, the fractional operator defined as the gradient of the Riesz potential has received particular attention, since it has revealed to be a useful tool for the study of fractional-order PDEs and fractional Sobolev spaces. In a joint work with G. E. Comi, combining the PDE approach developed by Spector and his collaborators with the distributional point of view adopted by Šilhavý, we introduced new notions of fractional variation and fractional Caccioppoli perimeter in analogy with the classical BV theory. Within this framework, we were able to partially extend De Giorgi’s Blow-up Theorem to sets of locally finite fractional Caccioppoli perimeter, proving existence of blow-ups and giving a first characterisation of these (possibly non-unique) limit sets. In this talk, after a quick overview on Fractional Calculus, I will introduce the main features of the fractional operators involved and then give an account on the main results on the fractional variation we were able to achieve so far.

Flexibility and Rigidity of Isometric Embeddings

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

The problem of embedding abstract Riemannian manifolds isometrically (i.e. preserving the lengths) into Euclidean space stems from the conceptually fundamental question of whether abstract Riemannian manifolds and submanifolds of Euclidean space are the same. As it turns out, such embeddings have a drastically different behaviour at low regularity (i.e. C^1) than at high regularity (i.e. C^2): for example, it's possible to find C^1 isometric embeddings of the standard 2-sphere into arbitrarily small balls in R^3, and yet, in the C^2 category there is (up to translation and rotation) just one isometric embedding, namely the standard inclusion. Analoguous to the Onsager conjecture, one might ask if there is a regularity threshold in the Hölder scale which distinguishes these behaviours. In my talk I will give an overview of what is known concerning the latter question.

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Many time-dependent nonlinear Schrödinger equations admit an invariant Gibbs measure, which is a probability measure on the space of distributions that is left invariant by the time evolution. Such measures have been extensively studied as tool to construct global solutions of time-dependent nonlinear Schrödinger equations with rough initial data. I review some recent progress on deriving these measures in dimensions 1,2,3 as high-temperature limits of many-body quantum mechanics. In one dimension, I also explain how time-dependent correlation functions of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation arise as limits of corresponding quantum many-body correlation functions.

]]>Metastability results for the Navier-Stokes equations and related models

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

We study diffusion and mixing in the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations and related scalar models. In this setting, mixing is a purely advective effect which causes a transfer of energy to high frequency. In turn, mixing acts to enhance the dissipative forces, giving rise to what we refer to as enhanced dissipation: this can be understood by the identification of a time-scale faster than the purely diffusive one. This talk is based on two recently obtained results: (1) a general quantitative criterion that links mixing rates (in terms of decay of negative Sobolev norms) to enhanced dissipation time-scales, and (2) a precise identification of the enhanced dissipation time-scale for the Navier-Stokes equations linearized around the Poiseuille flow, along with metastability results and nonlinear transition stability thresholds.

Soon we will no longer have a choice between government regulation and no government regulation. Our choice is between smart government regulation and stupid government regulation. Given this future, it's vital that we look back at what we've learned from past attempts to secure these systems, and forward at what technologies, laws, regulations, economic incentives, and social norms we need to secure them in the future.

Almost homogeneous curves and surfaces

In this talk, I will explain how to classify the pairs (X,G) where X is a curve or a surface and G is a smooth and connected algebraic group acting on X with a dense orbit.

For curves, I will mainly focus on the regular ones, defined over an arbitrary field. Over an algebraically closed field, the "natural" notion of non-singularity is "smoothness". However, over an arbitrary field, the weaker notion of "regularity" is more suitable. I will recall the difference between those two notions and show that there exist regular homogeneous curves which are not smooth.

For surfaces, I will restrict to the smooth ones, defined over an algebraically closed field. The situation is more complicated than for curves. Moreover, new phenomena and several difficulties appear in positive characteristic, and I will highlight them. ]]>

Probabilistic numerical methods, Bayesian inference and multiscale inverse problems

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

In the second part of the talk, we will discuss a Bayesian approach for inverse problems involving elliptic partial differential equations with multiple scales. Computing repeated forward problems in a multiscale context is computationnally too expensive and we propose a new strategy based on the use of "effective" forward models originating from homogenization theory. Convergence of the true posterior distribution for the parameters of interest towards the homogenized posterior is established via G-convergence for the Hellinger metric. A computational approach based on numerical homogenization and reduced basis methods is proposed for an efficient evaluation of the forward model in a Markov Chain Monte-Carlo procedure.

Propagation of regularity and mixing estimates for solutions of the incompressible continuity equation with Sobolev vector field

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Since the work by DiPerna and Lions (1989) the continuity and transport equation under mild regularity assumptions on the vector field have been extensively studied, becoming a florid research field. The applicability of this theory is very wide, especially in the study of partial differential equations and very recently also in the field of non-smooth geometry.

The aim of this talk is to give an overview of the quantitative side of the theory initiated by Crippa and De Lellis. We address the problem of mixing and propagation of regularity for solutions to the continuity equation drifted by Sobolev fields. The problem is well understood when the vector field enjoys a Sobolev regularity with integrability exponent p>1 and basically nothing is known (at the quantitative level) in the case p=1.

We present sharp regularity estimates for the case p>1 and new attempts to attack the challenging question in the case p=1. This is a join work with Quoc-Hung Nguyen.

Decentralized Collective Learning for Self-managed Sharing Economies

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Informatik, TAG Events Alumni Informatik]]>

Abstract:

The Internet of Things equips citizens with phenomenal new means for online participation in sharing economies. When agents self-determine options from which they choose, for instance their resource consumption and production, while these choices have a collective system-wide impact, optimal decision-making turns into a combinatorial optimization problem known as NP-hard. In such challenging computational problems, centrally managed (deep) learning systems often require personal data with implications on privacy and citizens’ autonomy. This paper envisions an alternative unsupervised and decentralized collective learning approach that preserves privacy, autonomy and participation of multi-agent systems self-organized into a hierarchical tree structure.

Remote interactions orchestrate a highly efficient process for decentralized collective learning. This disruptive concept is realized by I-EPOS, the Iterative Economic Planning and Optimized Selections, accompanied by a paradigmatic software artifact. Strikingly, I-EPOS outperforms related algorithms that involve non-local brute-force operations or exchange full information. This paper contributes new experimental findings about the influence of network topology and planning on learning efficiency as well as findings on techno-socio-economic trade-offs and global optimality. Experimental evaluation with real-world data from energy and bike sharing pilots demonstrates the grand potential of collective learning to design ethically and socially responsible participatory sharing economies.

Modeling and Individualizing Learning in Computer-Based Environments

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Informatik, TAG Events Alumni Informatik]]>

Abstract:

Learning technologies are becoming increasingly important in today's education. This includes game-based learning and simulations, which produce high volume output, and MOOCs (massive open online courses), which reach a broad and diverse audience at scale. The users of such systems often are of very different backgrounds, for example in terms of age, prior knowledge, and learning speed. Adaptation to the specific needs of the individual user is therefore essential. In this talk, I will present two of my contributions on modeling and predicting student learning in computer-based environments with the goal to enable individualization. The first contribution introduces a new model and algorithm for representing and predicting student knowledge. The new approach is efficient and has been demonstrated to outperform previous work regarding prediction accuracy. The second contribution introduces models, which are able to not only take into account the accuracy of the user, but also the inquiry strategies of the user, improving prediction of future learning. Furthermore, students can be clustered into groups with different strategies and targeted interventions can be designed based on these strategies. Finally, I will also describe lines of future research.

Transparent boundary conditions for sound propagation in human lungs, modelled by fractal trees

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

The construction of such transparent conditions relies on the approximation of the Dirichlet-to-Neumann (DtN) operator, whose symbol is a meromorphic function that satisfies a certain non-linear functional equation. We present two approaches to approximate the DtN in the time domain, alternative to the low-order absorbing boundary conditions, which appear inefficient in this case.

The first approach stems from the use of the convolution quadrature (cf. [Lubich 1988], [Banjai, Lubich, Sayas 2016]), which consists in constructing an exact DtN for a semi-discretized in time problem. In this case the combination of the explicit leapfrog method for the volumic terms and the implicit trapezoid rule for the boundary terms leads to a second-order scheme stable under the classical CFL condition.

The second approach is motivated by the Engquist-Majda ABCs (cf. [Engquist, Majda 1977]), and consists in approximating the DtN by local operators, obtained from the truncation of the meromorphic series which represents the symbol of the DtN. We show how the respective error can be controlled and provide some complexity estimates.

On Goormaghtigh's equation

Tags: TAG Events Zahlentheorie, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

\begin{equation}\label{eq}

\frac{x^m-1}{x-1} = \frac{y^n-1}{y-1}, \; \; y>x>1, \; m > n > 2.

\end{equation}

There are two known solutions $(x, y,m, n)=(2, 5, 5, 3), (2, 90, 13, 3)$ and it is believed that these are the only solutions. It is not known if this equation has finitely or infinitely many solutions, and not even if that is the case if we fix one of the variables. It is known that there are finitely many solutions if we fix any two variables. Moreover, there are effective results in all cases, except when the two fixed variables are the exponents $m$ and $n$. If the fixed $m$ and $n$ additionally satisfy $\gcd(m-1, n-1)>1$, then there is an effective finiteness result. My co-authors and me showed that if $n \geq 3$ is a fixed integer, then there exists an effectively computable constant $c (n)$ such that $\max \{ x, y, m \} < c (n)$ for all $x, y$ and $m$ that satisfy Goormaghtigh's equation with $\gcd(m-1,n-1)>1$. In case $n \in \{ 3, 4, 5 \}$, we solved the equation completely, subject to this non-coprimality condition. ]]>

Medical Video Analytics

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Informatik, TAG Events DMI]]>

**Abstract:**In hospitals all around the world, medical multimedia information systems have gained high importance over the last few years. One of the reasons is that an increasing number of interventions is performed in a minimally invasive way. These endoscopic inspections and surgeries are conducted with a tiny camera – the endoscope – which enables clinicians to control the intervention via an external display. Apart from the viewing purpose, the video signal can also be recorded and used for post-procedural scenarios, such as communicating operation techniques (i.e., training and teaching), planning future interventions, and medical forensics and analytics. The problem, however, is the sheer amount of unstructured video data that is added to the multimedia archive on a daily basis. Without proper management and content analytics the videos cannot be used efficiently by clinicians. In this talk I will summarize our recent investigations in this challenging research field and conclude on the achieved results.

**Bio:**Dr. Klaus Schöffmann is an Associate Professor in the Distributed Multimedia Systems research group at the Institute of Information Technology (ITEC) at Klagenfurt University, Austria.

Emerging real-world graph problems include: detecting and preventing disease in human populations; revealing community structure in large social networks; and improving the resilience of the electric power grid. Unlike traditional applications in computational science and engineering, solving these social problems at scale often raises new challenges because of the sparsity and lack of locality in the data, the need for research on scalable algorithms and development of frameworks for solving these real-world problems on high performance computers, and for improved models that capture the noise and bias inherent in the torrential data streams. In this talk, Bader will discuss the opportunities and challenges in massive data-intensive computing for applications in social sciences, physical sciences, and engineering.

David Bader is Professor and Chair of the School of Computational Science and Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, and is regarded as one of the world’s leading experts in data sciences.

Advances in the TAU Performance System and the Need for Dynamic Performance Introspection, In Situ Analysis, and Adaptation

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Informatik, TAG Events DMI]]>

**Abstract:** Since the beginning of ``high-performance'' parallel computing, observing

and analyzing performance for purposes of finding bottlenecks and

identifying opportunities for improvement has been at the heart of

delivering the performance potential of next-generation scalable systems.

Interestingly, it is the ever-changing parallel computing landscape that is

the main driver of requirements for parallel performance technology and the

improvements necessary beyond the current state-of-the-art. Indeed, the

development and application of our TAU Performance System over many years

largely follows an evolutionary path of addressing measurement and analysis

problems in new parallel machines and programming environments.

However, the outlook to future parallel systems with high degrees of

concurrency, heterogeneous components, dynamic runtime environments,

asynchronous execution, and power constraints suggests a new perspective

will be needed on the role of performance observation and analysis in

respect to tool technology integration and performance optimization

methods. The reliance on post-mortem analysis of application-level

("1st person") performance measurements is prohibitive for

exascale-class machines because of the performance data volume, the

primitive basis for performance data attribution, and the fundamental

problem of performance variation that will exist. Instead, it will be

important to provide introspection support across the exascale software

stack to understand how system ("3rd person") resources are used during

execution. Furthermore, the opportunity to couple a global performance

introspection capability (a "performance backplane") with online

performance decision analytics inspires the concept of an autonomic

performance system that can feed back policy-based decisions to guide

the computation to better states of execution.

The talk will explore these issues by giving a brief retrospective on

performance tool evolution, setting the stage for current research

projects where a new performance perspective is being pursued. It will

also speculate on what might be included in next-generation parallel

systems hardware, specifically to make the exascale machines more

performance-aware and dynamically-adaptive. **Speaker Bio: **Allen D. Malony is a Professor in the Department of Computer and

Information Science at the University of Oregon (UO) where he directs

and has developed performance evaluation tools for a range of parallel

machines during the last 30 years. Malony is also interested in

on a Lipschitz domain Ω and, more generally, on a manifold with or without boundary.

In earlier work, Filoche and Mayboroda introduced the function u solving Lu = 1, and showed numerically that it strongly reflects this localization. Here, we deepen the connection between the eigenfunctions and this landscape function u by proving that its reciprocal 1/u acts as an effective potential. The effective potential governs the exponential decay of the eigenfunctions of the system and delivers information on the distribution of eigenvalues near the bottom of the spectrum.

From Location to Location Pattern Privacy

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Informatik]]>

**Abstract:** Location privacy is getting increased attention due to mass use of Location Based Services (LBSs). Location privacy aims at protecting individuals' exact location from LBS providers. For this purpose, sharing coarse locations respecting users' location privacy profiles are commonly applied. The problem gets more complicated especially in urban areas where user movements are restricted on roads and the visited places are semantically annotated like bars, night clubs etc. This way location can act as an intrusive inference on people's personal preferences and habits. So, location privacy is not confined to privacy of location itself. Moreover, any sensitive pattern in users' trajectories can be resurfaced by data mining.

In this talk, especially for urban area mobility, I will give how location privacy profiles can be defined and maintained w.r.t. possible attack models. Then, I will introduce temporally annotated sequences as a means to define sensitive location patterns. Finally, a sensitive location pattern suppression mechanism running in online stream fashion of LBS access will be detailed. **Speaker Bio:** Osman Abul is currently an associate professor of computer science at TOBB University of Economics and Technology, Ankara, Turkey.

Machine Learning Driving Innovative Computing Concepts

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Perlenkolloquium]]>

The study of dynamical systems has a long history. Many people consider Henri Poincaré as the founder (at the end of the 19th century) of the modern theory of dynamical systems. Further important contributions at the beginning of the 20th are due to George David Birkhoff, Gaston Julia and Pierre Fatou.

In the talk we will discuss some aspects of the theory of dynamical systems with a view toward arithmetic. As an example we will show that Birkhoff's multiple recurrence Theorem can be used to provide an alternative proof of van der Waerden's Theorem on arithmetic progressions. We will also show that Julia sets are useful to understand the dynamic given by a rational function. ]]>

Some affine plane bundles over the punctured affine plane

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

The famous Dolgachev-Weisfeiler conjecture predicts that such fibrations are in fact isomorphic to the trivial bundle. We will show that this holds true in some particular examples. For instance, we will recover a result of Drew Lewis which states that the $\mathbb{A}^2$-fibration induced by the second Vénéreau polynomial is trivial.

Our proof is inspired by a previous work of Kaliman and Zaidenberg and consists in first showing that the considered fibrations have a fiber bundle structure when restricted over the punctured affine plane.

This is a joint work in progress with Jérémy Blanc. ]]>

Optimal adaptivity in finite and boundary element methods

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

In this talk, we first consider an adaptive FEM with hierarchical splines of arbitrary degree for linear elliptic PDE systems of second order with Dirichlet boundary condition for arbitrary dimension d≥2. We assume that the problem geometry can be parametrized over the d-dimensional unit cube. We propose a refinement strategy to generate a sequence of locally refined meshes and corresponding discrete solutions. Adaptivity is driven by some weighted-residual a posteriori error estimator. In [1], we proved linear convergence of the error estimator with optimal algebraic rate.

Next, we consider an adaptive BEM with hierarchical splines of arbitrary degree for weakly-singular integral equations of the first kind that arise from the solution of linear elliptic PDE systems of second order with constant coefficients and Dirichlet boundary condition. We assume that the boundary of the geometry is the union of surfaces that can be parametrized over the unit square. Again, we propose a refinement strategy to generate a sequence of locally refined meshes and corresponding discrete solutions, where adaptivity is driven by some weighted-residual a posteriori error estimator. In [2], we proved linear convergence of the error estimator with optimal algebraic rate. In contrast to prior works, which are restricted to the Laplace model problem, our analysis allows for arbitrary elliptic PDE operators of second order with constant coefficients.

Finally, for one-dimensional boundaries, we investigate an adaptive BEM with standard splines instead of hierarchical splines. We modify the corresponding algorithm so that it additionally uses knot multiplicity increase which results in local smoothness reduction of the ansatz space. In [3], we proved linear convergence of the employed weighted-residual error estimator with optimal algebraic rate.

The Pathfinding Engine of Dragon Age: Origins

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Informatik]]>

**Abstract:** What does it take to build a high-quality pathfinding engine? One might think that pathfinding in games is a simple case of using A*, which finds shortest paths. But, in practice, there are many other considerations for finding high-quality paths quickly in dynamic environments. This talk will give an overview of the techniques required to build the pathfinding engine of Dragon Age: Origins. Five iterations of improvements will be presented, starting from basic pathfinding approaches, and moving to a final system that creates high-quality, smooth paths. To conclude, we will discuss open challenges in pathfinding and what it would take to create a pathfinding system that finds human-quality paths.

**Speaker Bio:** Nathan Sturtevant is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at the University of Denver. His scientific research focuses on search in Artificial Intelligence. This includes work on heuristic and combinatorial search for single and multiple agents, including bidirectional search, automated abstraction, heuristics, refinement search, search for game design, heuristic learning, inconsistent heuristics, cooperative search, large-scale and parallel search.

Particular applications include pathfinding and planning in memory-constrained real-time environments (e.g. commercial video games) as well as algorithms for building and using memory-based heuristics via large-scale search. Other work considers theoretical and practical issues in games with more than two players, including opponent modeling, learning, and imperfect information.

]]>Quantitative estimates of propagation of chaos for stochastic systems with singular interactions

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

We derive quantitative estimates proving the propagation of chaos for large stochastic systems of interacting particles. We obtain explicit bounds on the relative entropy between the joint law of the particles and the tensorized law at the limit. We have to develop for this new laws of large numbers at the exponential scale. But our result only requires very weak regularity on the interaction kernel in the negative Sobolev space W^{-1,∞}, thus including the Biot-Savart law and the point vortices dynamics for the 2d incompressible Navier-Stokes.

Tidal energy in Newtonian two-body motion

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

In this work, which is based on an essential linear analysis by Christodoulou, we study the tidal energy for the motion of two gravitating incompressible fluid balls with free boundaries, obeying the Euler-Poisson equations. The orbital energy is defined as the mechanical energy of the center of mass of the two bodies. When the fluids are replaced by point masses, according to the classical analysis of Kepler and Newton, the conic curve describing the trajectories of the bodies is a hyperbola when the orbital energy is positive and an ellipse when the orbital energy is negative. If the point masses are initially very far, then the orbital energy, which is conserved in the case of point masses, is positive corresponding to hyperbolic motion. However, in the motion of fluid balls the orbital energy is no longer conserved, as part of the conserved energy is used in deforming the boundaries of the bodies. This energy is called the tidal energy. If the tidal energy becomes larger than the total energy during the evolution, the orbital energy must change its sign, signaling a qualitative change in the orbit of the bodies. We will show that under appropriate conditions on the initial configuration this change of sign occurs. Our analysis relies on an a-priori estimates which we establish up to the point of closest approach.

Dirac operators with magnetic links

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

We consider Dirac operators on the 3-sphere with singular magnetic fields which are supported on links, that is on one-dimensional manifolds which are diffeomorphic to finitely many copies of S^{1}. Each connected component carries a flux 2πα which exhibits a 2π-periodicity, just like Aharonov-Bohmsolenoids in the complex plane. We study the kernel of such operators through the spectral flow of loops corresponding to tuning some flux from 0 to 2π, that is the number of eigenvalues crossing 0 along the loop (counted algebraically). It turns out that the spectral flow is generically non-zero and depends on the shape of the curves and their linking number. Through the stereographic projection the result extends to R^{3}. And then by smearing out the magnetic fields we obtain new solutions (ψ,A) to the zero-mode equation on R^{3}:

σ·(-i∇+A)=0,

(ψ,A) ∈ H^{1}(R^{3})^{2} × \dot{H}^{1}(R^{3})^{3 }∩ L^{6}(R^{3})^{3},

where σ=(σ)_{j=1...3} denotes the family of the Pauli matrices, A is the magnetic potential associated to the magnetic field ∇×A, and σ⋅(-i∇+A) is the corresponding Dirac operator in R^{3}.

External boundary control of the motion of a rigid body immersed in a perfect two-dimensional fluid

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

We consider the motion of a rigid body due to the pressure of a surrounded two-dimensional irrotational perfect incompressible fluid, the whole system being confined in abounded domain with an impermeable condition on a part of the external boundary. Thanks to an impulsive control strategy we prove that there exists an appropriate boundary condition on the remaining part of the external boundary (allowing some fluid going in and out the domain) such that the immersed rigid body is driven from some given initial position and velocity to some final position and velocity in a given positive time, without touching the external boundary. The controlled part of the external boundary is assumed to have a nonvoid interior and the final position is assumed to be in the same connected component of the set of possible positions as the initial position.

Patterns formation for minimizers of a local/non-local interaction functional in general dimension

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

We study a functional consisting of a perimeter term and a non-local term which are in competition, both in the discrete and continuous setting.In the discrete setting such functional was introduced by Giuliani, Lebowitz, Liebe and Seiringer. For both the continuous and discrete problem, we show that the global minimizers are exact periodic stripes. One striking feature of the functionals is that the minimizers are invariant under a smaller group of symmetries than the functional itself. In the continuous setting, to our knowledge this is the first example of a model with local/nonlocal terms in competition such that the functional is invariant under permutation of coordinates and the minimizers display a pattern formation which is one dimensional. Such behaviour for a smaller range of exponents in the discrete setting had been already shown,using different techniques. This is a joint work with E. Runa.

The Porous Medium Equation with Large Initial Data on Negatively Curved Riemannian Manifolds

We discuss existence and uniqueness of very weak solutions of the Cauchy problem for the porous medium equation on Cartan–Hadamard manifolds satisfying suitable lower bounds on Ricci curvature, with initial data that can grow at inﬁnity at a prescribed rate, that depends crucially on the curvature bounds. Furthermore, we give a precise estimate for the maximal existence time, and we show that in general solutions do not exist if the initial data grow at inﬁnity too fast. Such results have been recently obtained jointly with G. Grillo and M. Muratori.

SQP Methods for Shape Optimization Based on Weak Shape Hessians

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

The talk introduces shape optimization as a special sub-class of PDE constraint optimization problems. The main focus here will be on generating Newton-like methods for large scale applications. The key for this endeavor is the derivation of the shape Hessian, that is the second directional derivative of a cost functional with respect to geometry changes in a weak form based on material derivatives instead of classical local shape derivatives. To avoid human errors, a computer aided derivation system is also introduced.

The methodologies are tested on problem from fluid dynamics and geometric inverse problems.

The problem of extending a given metric on a finite three dimensional domain to one which is asymptotically flat and which satisfies the constraint equations of general relativity was proposed by Robert Bartnik.

In this talk we will describe this problem and recent results on it including a comparison of the Bartnik mass to other quasi-local mass notions.

Rademacher’s Theorem, Cheeger’s Conjecture and PDEs for measures

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Informatik, TAG Events DMI]]>

The classical Rademacher Theorem asserts that every Lipschitz function is differentiablea lmost everywhere with respect to Lebesgue measure. On the other hand, Preiss (’90) gave a surprising example of a nullset in the plane such that every Lipschitz function is differentiable at at least one point of this set. Thus, it is a natural question to ask whether there exists a singular measure such that all Lipschitz functions are differentiable with respect to this singular measure. It turns out that this question has an intricate connection to the geometric structure of normal one-currents. In this talk I will present a converse to Rademacher’s Theorem, which settles the question in the negative in all dimensions: if a positive measure μ has the property that all Lipschitz functions are μ-a.e. differentiable, then μ is absolutely continuous with respect to Lebesgue measure (in the plane, this question was already solved by Alberti, Csornyei and Preiss in ’05). In a geometric context, Cheeger conjectured in ’99 that in all Lipschitz differentiability spaces (which are essentially Lipschitz manifolds in which Rademacher’s Theorem holds) likewise there is a “functional converse” to Rademacher’s Theorem. As the second main result, I will present a recent solution to this conjecture.Technically, the proofs of both of these theorems are based on a recent structure result for the singular parts of PDE-constrained measures, its corollary on the structure of normalone-currents, and the powerful theory of Alberti representations.

Algorithmic patterns for hierarchical matrices on many-core processors

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

We are interested to use these many-core processors for the full H-matrix construction and application process. A motivation for this interest lies in the well-known claim that future standard processors will evolve towards many-core hardware, anyway. In order to be prepared for this development, we want to discuss many-core parallel formulations of classical H-matrix algorithms and adaptive cross approximations.

In the presentation, the use of H-matrices is motivated by the model application of kernel-based approximation for the solution of parametric PDEs, e.g. PDEs with stochastic coefficients. The main part of the talk will be dedicated to the challenges of H-matrix parallelizations on many-core hardware with the specific model hardware of GPUs. We propose a set of parallelization strategies which overcome most of these challenges. Benchmarks of our implementation are used to explain the effect of different parallel formulations of the algorithms.

Expanding large global solutions of the equations of compressible fluid mechanics

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

In a recent work Sideris constructed a finite-parameter family of compactly supported affine solutions to the free boundary isentropic compressible Euler equations satisfying the physical vacuum condition. The support of these solutions expands at a linear rate in time. We show that if the adiabatic exponent gamma belongs to the interval (1,5⁄3] then this moduli space of affine motions is non-linearly stable without any symmetry assumptions; small perturbations lead to global-in-time solutions that remain close to an affine motion, they are smooth in the interior of their support, and no shocks are formed in the process.Our strategy relies on two key ingredients: a new interpretation of the affine motions using an (almost) invariant action of GL(3) on the compressible Euler system and the use of Lagrangian coordinates. The former suggests a particular rescaling of time and a change of variables that elucidates a stabilisation mechanism, while the latter requires introducing new ideas with respect to the existing well-posedness theory for vacuum free boundary fluid equations.

Verifiable conditions for convergence rates of regularization methods for inverse problems

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

Over the last years Variational Source Conditions (VSCs) have become a standard assumption for the analysis of these methods. Compared to spectral source conditions they have a number of advantages: They can be used for general nonquadratic penalty and data fidelity terms, lead to simpler proofs, are often not only sufficient, but even necessary for certain convergence rates, and they do not involve the derivative of the forward operator (and hence do not require restrictive assumptions such as a tangential cone condition). However, so far only few sufficient conditions for VSCs for specific inverse problems are known.

To overcome this drawback, we propose a general strategy for the verification of VSCs, which consists of two sufficient conditions: One of them describes the smoothness of the solution, and the other one the degree of ill-posedness of the operator. For a number of important linear inverse problems this leads to equivalent characterizations of VSCs in terms of Besov spaces and necessary and sufficient conditions for rates of convergence. We also discuss the application of our strategy to nonlinear parameter identification and inverse medium scattering problems where it provides sufficient conditions for VSCs in terms of standard function spaces.

Hierarchical Tensor Approximation

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

We propose an alternative: the Galerkin trial space is constructed using a partition of unity. By multiplying local cut-off functions with polynomials, we can obtain discretizations of arbitrary order, and local grid refinement can be realized by reducing the supports of the cut-off functions. The main challenge lies in the construction of the corresponding system matrix, since even determining the sparsity pattern involves interactions between cut-off functions on different levels of the mesh hierarchy.

Our approach leads to a sparse system matrix, the basis functions are convenient tensor products of functions on lower-dimensional domains, and local regularity can be exploited by variable-order interpolation in order to obtain close to optimal complexity.

Uniqueness of weak solutions to transport equation with two-dimensional nearly incompressible BV vector field

Given a bounded, autonomous vector field b: R^{2} → R^{2}, we study the uniqueness of bounded solutions to the initial value problem for the related transport equation

(1) ∂tu + b · ∇u = 0.

We prove that uniqueness of weak solutions holds under the assumptions that b is of class BV and it is nearly incompressible. Our proof is based on a splitting technique (introduced previously by Alberti, Bianchini and Crippa) that allows to reduce (1) to a family of 1-dimensional equations which can be solved explicitly, thus yielding uniqueness for the original problem.

In order to perform this program, we use Disintegration Theorem and known results on the structure of level sets of Lipschitz maps: this is done after a suitable localization of the problem, in which we exploit also Ambrosio’s superposition principle.

Blowup Dynamics in the Keller-Segel Model of Chemotaxis

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

The Keller-Segel equations model chemotaxis of bio-organisms. In a reduced form, considered in this talk, they are related to Vlasov equation for self-gravitating systems and are used in social sciences in descriptions of crime patterns. It is relatively easy to show that in the critical dimension 2 and for the mass of initial conditions greater than 8π, the solutions break down in finite time. Understanding the mechanism of this breakdown turned out to be a subtle problem defying solution for a long time. Preliminary results indicate that the solutions “blowup”. This blowup is supposed to describe the chemotactic aggregation of the organisms and understanding its universal features would allow comparison of theoretical results with experimental observations. In this talk I discuss recent results on dynamics of solutions of the (reduced) Keller-Segel equations in the critical dimension 2, which include a formal derivation and partial rigorous results on the blowup dynamics of solutions.

In order to obtain uniqueness for solutions of scalar conservation laws with discontinuous flux, Kruzhkov’s entropy conditions are not enough and additional dissipation conditions have to be imposed on the discontinuity set of the flux.

I will show that under quite general assumptions on the flux, solutions admit traces on the discontinuity set of the flux. This allows to show that any pair of solutions satises a Kato type inequality with an explicit reminder term concentrated on the discontinuities of the flux. Applications to uniqueness is then discussed.

In this talk, I discuss the underlying phase-mixing mechanism of linear inviscid damping, its mathematical challenges and how to establish decay with optimal rates for a general class of monotone shear flows. Here, a particular focus will be on the setting of a channel with impermeable walls, where boundary effects asymptotically result in the formation of singularities.

We will discuss its uses and limitations and prove well-posedness of the Cauchy problem and attractivity of local minimizers.

Networks of curves in the plane moving by curvature

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

I consider the motion by curvature of a network of curves in the Euclidean plane and I discuss existence, uniqueness, and asymptotic behavior of the evolution. In particular, I focus on two model cases: a regular embedded network composed by three curves with fixed endpoints (triod) and a regular embedded network composed by two curves, one of which is closed (spoon). After talking about the state of art of the problem, I will present some new and possibly ”incoming” results obtained with Carlo Mantegazza and Matteo Novaga.

The Trudinger-Moser inequality is a substitute for the well known Sobolev embedding theorem when the limiting case is considered.

]]>Model order reduction with adaptive finite element POD and application to uncertainty quantification

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

Standard techniques assume that all snapshots use one and the same spatial mesh. I present a generalization for unsteady adaptive finite elements, where the mesh can change from time step to time step and, in the case of stochastic sampling, from realization to realization. I will answer the following questions: How can the coding effort for creating such a reduced-order model be minimized? How can the union of all snapshot meshes be avoided? What is the main difference between static and adaptive snapshots in the error analysis of Galerkin reduced-order models?

As a numerical test case I consider a two-dimensional viscous Burgers equation with smooth initial data multiplied by a normally distributed random variable. The results illustrate the convergence properties with respect to the number of POD basis functions and indicate possible savings of computation time.

The finiteness problem for minimal surfaces of bounded index in a 3-manifold

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Given a closed, Riemannian 3-manifold (N, g) without symmetries (more precisely: generic) and a non-negative integer p, can we say something about the number of minimal surfaces it contains whose Morse index is bounded by p? More realistically, can we prove that such number is necessarily finite? This is the classical ”generic finiteness” problem, which has a rich history and exhibits interesting subtleties even in its basic counterpart concerning closed geodesics on surfaces. We settle such question when g is a bumpy metric of positive scalar curvature by proving that either finiteness holds or N does contain a copy of RP^{3} in its prime decomposition and we discuss the obstructions to any further generalisation of such result. When g is assumed to be strongly bumpy (meaning that all closed, immersed minimal surfaces do not have Jacobi fields, a notion recently proved to be generic by White) then the finiteness conclusion is true for any compact 3-manifold without boundary.

Nonlinear Bounds in Hölder Spaces for the Monge-Ampère Equation

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

It is well known that for many second-order PDEs the solution v gains two derivatives with respect to the right-hand side g in Hölder spaces. Often, however, it is useful to have a quantitative understanding of regularity. In ’89, Caffarelli proved interior a priori estimates for fully nonlinear, uniformly elliptic equations. Specifically, he showed that ‖v‖_{C2,α(B_{1/2})}≤C(‖v‖_{L∞(B_{1})}+‖g‖_{Cα(B_{1})}) and C∼1/α as α→0. The natural question to ask is then: Can one extend such quantitative estimates to other equations? An equation that appears frequently in analysis, geometry, and applications is the Monge-Ampére equation det(D^{2}u) = f. The Monge-Ampère equation enjoys the same qualitative regularity gains as its linear counterpart the Poisson equation in the appropriate setting, and so we ask whether or not the quantitative picture is also the same. This is not the case. In this talk, we will first review Caffarelli’s interior a priori estimates. Then, we will move to the Monge-Ampère equation and see a different picture.

Invariant manifolds for the porous medium equation

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

We investigate the speed of convergence and higher-order asymptotics of solutions to the porous medium equation. Applying a nonlinear change of variables, we rewrite the equation as a diffusion on a fixed domain with quadratic nonlinearity.The degeneracy is cured by viewing the dynamics on a hypocycloidic manifold. It is in this framework that we can prove a differentiable dependency of solutions on the initial data, and thus, dynamical systems methods are applicable. Our main result is the construction of invariant manifolds in the phase space of solutions which are tangent at the origin to the eigenspaces of the linearized equation. We show how these invariant manifolds can be used to extract information on higher-order long-time asymptotic expansions.

Moreover, we hope also the audience to see how naturally the barycenter technique fits into conformally invariant variational problems verifying the structure of quantization and strong interaction phenomena.

Results and conjectures about some isoperimetric problems with density

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

The standard isoperimetric inequality states that among all sets with a given fixed volume(or area in dimension 2) the ball has the smallest perimeter. That is, written here for simplicity in dimension 2, the following infimum is attained by the ball

2πR= inf{∫_{∂Ω} 1 dσ(x) : Ω⊂**R**^{2} and ∫_{Ω} 1 dx=πR^{2}}.

The isoperimetric problem with density is a generalization of this question: given two positive functions f,g:**R**^{2}→**R**^{2} one studies the existence of minimizers of

I(C) = inf{∫_{∂Ω} g(x) dσ(x) : Ω⊂**R**^{2} and ∫_{Ω} f(x) dx=C}.

A generalization of Gromov’s almost flat manifold theorem

Almost flat manifolds are the solutions of bounded size perturbations of the equation Sec=0 (Sec is the sectional curvature). In a celebrated theorem, Gromov proved that the presence of an almost flat metric implies a precise topological description of the underlying manifold.

Integral pinching theorems express curvature assumptions in terms of certain L^{p}-norms and try to deduce topological conclusions. But typically one needs to require p >n2, where n is the dimension of the manifold, to prove such rigidity theorems.

During this talk we will explain how, under lower sectional curvature bounds, to imposeanL1-pinching condition on the curvature is surprisingly rigid, leading indeed to the same conclusion as in Gromov’s theorem under more relaxed curvature conditions.

One Shot Inverse Scattering and Source Splitting

Tags: TAG Events DMI, TAG Events Forschung Mathematik]]>

Besides standard regularization methods, which are often iterative, a completely different methodology - so-called qualitative reconstruction methods - has attracted a lot of interest recently. These algorithms recover specific qualitative properties of scattering objects or anomalies inside a medium in a reliable and fast way. They avoid the simulation of forward models and need no a priori information on physical or topological properties of the unknown objects or inhomogeneities to be reconstructed. One of the drawbacks of currently available qualitative reconstruction methods is the large amount of data required by most of these algorithms. It is usually assumed that measurement data of waves scattered by the unknown objects corresponding to infinitely many primary waves are given - at least theoretically.

We consider the inverse source problem for the Helmholtz equation as a means to provide a qualitative inversion algorithm for inverse scattering problems for acoustic or electromagnetic waves with a single excitation only. Probing an ensemble of obstacles by just one primary wave at a fixed frequency and measuring the far field of the corresponding scattered wave, the inverse scattering problem that we are interested in consists in reconstructing the support of the scatterers. To this end we rewrite the scattering problem as a source problem and apply two recently developed algorithms - the inverse Radon approximation and the convex scattering support - to recover information on the support of the corresponding source. The first method builds upon a windowed Fourier transform of the far field data followed by a filtered backprojection, and although this procedure yields a rather blurry reconstruction, it can be applied to identify the number and the positions of well separated source components. This information is then utilized to split the far field into individual far field patterns radiated by each of the well separated source components using a Galerkin scheme. Finally we compute the convex scattering supports associated to the individual source components as a reconstruction of the individual scatterers. We discuss this algorithm and present numerical results.

Geometric Lang-Vojta Conjecture in P^2

In the (split) function field case the conjecture predicts (weak) algebraic hyperbolicity for log-general type varieties.When the completion of the variety is the projective plane the conjecture is known both if the divisor at infinity consits of four lines in general position (Brownawell-Masser and,independently, Voloch) and for a conic and two lines with five singular points (Corvaja and Zannier). With different methods Chen and Pacienza-Rousseau proved that the conjecture holds in the hyperbolic case, i.e. the complement of a very generic curve of degree at least 5.

In the talk, after an introduction to this fascinating subject, we will show how to prove the conjecture in general for the complement of a very generic curve of degree at least four.The proof relies on a deformation argument applied to a conic and two lines and on the theory of logarithmic stable maps as defined by Abramovich-Chen (and independently by Gross and Siebert) which extends usual stable maps to the logarithmic category (in the sense of Kato and Illusie). ]]>

In this joint work with Giovanni Alberti, we prove a Frobenius property for inte-gral currents: namely, if R=[∑,ξ,θ] k-dimensional integral current with a simple tangent vector field ξ∈C^{1}(**R**^{d};Λ_{k}(**R**^{d})), then ξ is involtive at almost every point in ∑. This result is related to the following decomposition problem formulated by F.Morgan: given a k-dimensional normal current T, do there exist a measure space L and a family of rectifiable currents {R_{λ}}_{λ∈L} such that T = ∫_{L} R_{λ} dλ and the mass decomposes consistently as M(T) = ∫_{L} M(R_{λ}) dλ? The aforementioned Frobenius property allows us to provide a counterexample to the existence of such a decomposition with a family of integral currents.

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

Given a domain R of characteristic p >0, there exist two subgroups of the group GAn(R) of polynomial automorphisms which are natural generalisations of the linear group GL_{n}(R).

1) The subgroup of additive automorphisms, i.e. automorphisms with n components satisfying f(x+y) =f(x)+f(y) where x and y are set of n variables.

2) The subgroup of automorphisms with a Jacobian matrix in GL_{n}(R).

The subgroup generated by the translations and automorphisms of the type 1 (resp. 2) is called geometrically affine (resp. differentially affine). This group, together with the triangular automorphisms, generates the subgroup of geometrically tame (resp. differentially tame) automorphisms. We study these groups in dimension 2. We prove that they are different and endowed with a nice structure of amalgamated product.

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

In this talk I will discuss the problem of the approximation of suitable weak solutions of Navier-Stokes equations in the sense of Scheffer and Caffarelli-Kohn-Nirenberg. It is well-known that suitable weak solutions enjoy the partial regularity theorem proved in the famous paper of Caffarelli-Kohn-Nirenberg, hence they are more regular than a Leray weak solutions. However, since the uniqueness of weak solutions of Navier-Stokes is unknown we don’t know if different approximation methods lead to a suitable weak solution. I will present a recent result obtained with L. C. Berselli (University of Pisa) where we proved that weak solutions obtained by some artificial compressibility approximation are suitable. The novelty of the result is that the Navier-Stokes equations are considered in a bounded domain with Navier boundary conditions.

The structure of complex unimodular maps

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

We describe the structure of maps u:(0,1)^{n} → S^{1} having a given Sobolev regularity. Such maps are described by their singularities and phases. This is the analog of the Weierstrass factorization theorem for holomorphic functions; the singularities of the Sobolev maps play the role of the zeroes of holomorphic maps. We will present implications of this result to functional analytic questions related to manifold valued maps. If the time permits it, we will discuss the question of the control of the phases, and present some applications to some model PDEs and nonlocal problems.

Compactness issues and bubbling phenomena for the prescribed Gaussian curvature equation

Tags: TAG Events Forschung Mathematik, TAG Events DMI]]>

A classical question in differential geometry concerns which smooth functions f can arise as Gauss curvature of a conformal metric on a 2-dim Riemannian manifold M. This amounts to solve a PDE which is the Euler-Lagrange equation of an energy functional. In this talk we will discuss about compactness issues and bubbling phenomena for this equation on surfaces of genus greater than 1 (joint work with Borer and Struwe) and on the torus.
