Solvability of some integro-differential equations with the double scale anomalous diffusion in higher dimensions

The work is devoted to the studies of the existence of
solutions of an integro-differential equation in the case of the double
scale anomalous diffusion with the sum of the two negative Laplacians
raised to two distinct fractional powers in \(\mathbb{R}^d\), \(d=4,5\). The proof of the
existence of solutions is based on a fixed point technique. Solvability
conditions for the non-Fredholm elliptic operators in unbounded domains
are used.

Wavelet representation and Sobolev regularity of quasiregular maps

Extending the Sobolev theory of quasiconformal and quasiregular maps to subdomains of the complex plane motivates our investigation of Sobolev regularity of singular integral operators on domains. We introduce new paraproducts which lead to higher order T1-type testing conditions. A special case provides weighted Sobolev estimates for the compressed Beurling transform which imply quantitative Sobolev estimates for the Beltrami resolvent. This is joint work with Francesco Di Plinio and Brett D. Wick.

The Picard group of the stack of pointed hyperelliptic curves

The problem of computing invariants of natural stacks of curves has a long history, starting from Mumford's seminal paper on the Picard group of the stack of 1-pointed elliptic curves. The Picard group of the stack \(\mathcal{M}_{g,n}\) of \(n\)-pointed smooth curves of genus \(g\geq3\) was later computed over \(\mathbb{C}\) by Harer.

We study the closed substack \(\mathcal{H}_{g,n}\) in \(\mathcal{M}_{g,n}\) of \(n\)-pointed smooth hyperelliptic curves of genus \(g\), and compute its Picard group. As a corollary, taking \(g=2\) and recalling that \(\mathcal{H}_{2,n}=\mathcal{M}_{2,n}\), we obtain \(\mathrm{Pic}(\mathcal{M}_{2,n})\) for all \(n\).

Moreover, we give a very explicit description of the generators of the Picard group, which have evident geometric meaning.

Update on singular integrals and entangled dilations

We discuss various results on singular integrals adapted to entangled dilations from the past two years. The existing results are mostly on the so-called Zygmund dilations that constitute the simplest intermediate dilation structure lying in between the classical one-parameter setting and the multi-parameter setting. We start with an overview of the subtle optimal weighted theory in the Zygmund case, the techniques behind that, and the implications these have for further results, such as, commutator estimates.  We then discuss the more recent multilinear versions of this theory, the current limitations and, time permitting, some possible further directions and challenges in the area.

The compactness of multilinear Calder\’{o}n-Zygmund operators.

We prove a wavelet $T(1)$ theorem for compactness of multilinear Calder\'{o}n-Zygmund (CZ) operators. Our approach characterizes compactness in terms of testing conditions and yields a representation theorem for compact CZ forms in terms of wavelet and paraproduct forms that reflect the compact nature of the operator. This talk is based on joint work with Walton Green and Brett Wick.

On containment of trace ideals in ideals of finite projective or injective dimension

Motivated by recent result of F. Perez and R.R.G. on equality of test ideal of module closure operation and trace ideal, and the well-known result by K.E. Smith that parameter test ideal can never be contained in parameter ideals, we study the obstruction of containment of trace ideals in ideals of finite projective (or injective) dimension. As consequences of our results , we give upper bounds on m-adic order of trace ideals of certain modules. We also prove analogous results for ideal of entries of maps in a free resolution of certain modules. This is joint work with Souvik Dey.

Spectral analysis of the traveling waves of the CH-KP equation under transverse perturbation

The Camassa-Holm-Kadomtsev-Petviashvili equation (CH-KP) is a two dimensional generalization of the Camassa-Holm equation which has been recently derived in the context of shallow water waves and nonlinear elasticity. In this talk we will discuss the stability of the one-dimensional traveling waves, solitary or periodic, with respect to two dimensional perturbations which are periodic in the transverse direction. We show that the stability or instability depends on a sign parameter of the transverse dispersion term. In particular, a nonlinear instability of the one-dimensional solitary waves of any size can be proved for the so-called CH-KP-I model, while for one-dimensional periodic waves we are able to obtain spectral instability for small amplitude CH-KP-I waves.  This is a joint work with Lili Fan, Jie Jin, Xingchang Wang and Runzhang Xu.
