[Seminar] Growth estimates for \(p-\)harmonic Green functions on weighted \(R^n\) and metric spaces | Professor Jana Björn, Linköping University and OIST TSVP Visiting Scholar

Wednesday, May 15, 2024 - 10:00 to 11:00
L4E48 and Zoom

Speaker: Professor Jana Björn , Linköping University and OIST TSVP Visiting Scholar Title: The Dirichlet Problem and Boundary Regularity for Nonlinear Parabolic Equations

Abstract: As shown by Serrin in 1964, the growth at an isolated singularity of solutions to the elliptic equation div A(x, ∇u) = 0 in Rn (including p-harmonic functions with p > 1) is exactly determined by the dimension n and the parameter p associated with the equation. In this talk, I will discuss growth and integrability properties for p-harmonic Green functions and their gradients on weighted Rn, with a p-admissible weight, as well as on complete metric spaces equipped with a doubling measure supporting a p-Poincar´e inequality. In these situations, the dimension n is replaced by the local growth of the underlying measure near the isolated singularity, and the obtained growth and integrability exponents are sharp.

【Seminar】The Dirichlet problem and boundary regularity for nonlinear parabolic equations | Prof. Professor Anders Björn, Linköping University and OIST TSVP Visiting Scholar

Wednesday, May 8, 2024 - 10:00 to 11:00
L4E48 and Zoom

Speaker: Professor Anders Björn, Linkoping University and OIST TSVP Visiting Scholar Title: The Dirichlet problem and boundary regularity for nonlinear parabolic equations

Abstract: The p-parabolic equation \[ \partial_t u = \Delta_p u := \dvg(|\nabla u|^{p-2}\nabla u) \] is a nonlinear cousin of the classical heat equation. As such, it offers both difficulties and advantages compared with the heat equation. In the talk, we consider the Perron method for solving the Dirichlet problem for the p-parabolic equation in general bounded domains in $R^{n+1}$. Compared to space-time cylinders, such domains allow the space domain to change in time. Of particular interest will be boundary regularity for such domains, i.e. whether solutions attain their boundary data in a continuous way. Relations between regular boundary points and barriers will be discussed, as well as some peculiar examples and surprising phenomena related to boundary regularity. Towards the end I will discuss the same type of questions for two other nonlinear cousins of the heat equation, the porous medium equation \[ \partial_t u = \dvg(u^m) \] and the so-called normalized p-parabolic equation \[ \partial_t u = |\nabla u|^{2-p}\Delta_p u. \] The talk is based on collaborations with Jana Bj\"orn (Link\"oping), Ugo Gianazza (Pavia), Mikko Parviainen (Jyv\"askyl\"a) and Juhana Siljander (Jyv\"askyl\"a).

Graduate School Mini Course Series: Introduction to Supersymmetric QFT

Thursday, April 25, 2024 - 10:00
L5EF11

Supersymmetry is a remarkable invariance property of physical theories which extends the usual notion of a symmetry algebra to allow for the inclusion of fermionic generators. Field theories with supersymmetry exhibit many physically relevant phenomena such as quark confinement, dynamical symmetry breaking and non-perturbative dualities in a setting where they can be studied precisely using analytic methods. Supersymmetric QFTs have also played a key role in the development of the AdS/CFT correspondence, for which they provide the best understood examples. In this course, Dr. Nick Dorey will give an overview of these developments emphasizing those things which we can calculate exactly.
