Here we study the nonlinear hyperbolic equations of the type of equations from theory of flows on networks, for which we prove the solvability theorem under the appropriate conditions and also investigate the behaviour of the solution. Read More

We consider a system of N particles interacting via a short-range smooth potential, in a intermediate regime between the weak-coupling and the low-density. We provide a rigorous derivation of the Linear Landau equation from this particle system. The strategy of the proof consists in showing the asymptotic equivalence between the one-particle marginal and the solution of the linear Boltzmann equation with vanishing mean free path. Read More

We consider a finite-dimensional quantum system coupled to the bosonic radiation field and subject to a time-periodic control operator. Assuming the validity of a certain dynamic decoupling condition we approximate the system's time evolution with respect to the non-interacting dynamics. For sufficiently small coupling constants $g$ and control periods $T$ we show that a certain deviation of coupled and uncoupled propagator may be estimated by $\mathcal{O}(gt \, T)$. Read More

This paper is intended to be a further step through our Killing spinor programme started with Class. Quantum Grav. \textbf{32}, 175007 (2015), and we will advance our programme in accordance with the road map recently given in arXiv:1611. Read More

Recent years witnessed an extensive development of the theory of the critical point in two-dimensional statistical systems, which allowed to prove {\it existence} and {\it conformal invariance} of the {\it scaling limit} for two-dimensional Ising model and dimers in planar graphs. Unfortunately, we are still far from a full understanding of the subject: so far, exact solutions at the lattice level, in particular determinant structure and exact discrete holomorphicity, play a cucial role in the rigorous control of the scaling limit. The few results about not-integrable (interacting) systems at criticality are still unable to deal with {\it finite domains} and {\it boundary corrections}, which are of course crucial for getting informations about conformal covariance.

The analysis of the entanglement entropy of a subsystem of a one-dimensional quantum system is a powerful tool for unravelling its critical nature. For instance, the scaling behaviour of the entanglement entropy determines the central charge of the associated Virasoro algebra. For a free fermion system, the entanglement entropy depends essentially on two sets, namely the set $A$ of sites of the subsystem considered and the set $K$ of excited momentum modes. Read More

This paper is concerned with the invisibility cloaking in electromagnetic wave scattering from a new perspective. We are especially interested in achieving the invisibility cloaking by completely regular and isotropic mediums. Our study is based on an interior transmission eigenvalue problem. Read More

A new generalized Wick theorem for interacting fields in 2D conformal field theory is described. We briefly discuss its relation to the Borcherds identity and its derivation by an analytic method. Examples of the calculations of the operator product expansions by using the generalized Wick theorems including fermionic fields are also presented. Read More

We discuss several classes of integrable Floquet systems, i.e. systems which do not exhibit chaotic behavior even under a time dependent perturbation. Read More

An efficient systematic procedure is provided for symbolic computation of Lie groups of equivalence transformations and generalized equivalence transformations of systems of differential equations that contain arbitrary elements (arbitrary functions and/or arbitrary constant parameters), using the software package GeM for Maple. Application of equivalence transformations to the reduction of the number of arbitrary elements in a given system of equations is discussed, and several examples are considered. First computational example of a generalized equivalence transformation where the transformation of the dependent variable involves the arbitrary constitutive function is presented. Read More
