Model Spaces of Regularity Structures for Space-Fractional SPDEs

We study model spaces, in the sense of Hairer, for stochastic partial differential equations involving the fractional Laplacian. We prove that the fractional Laplacian is a singular kernel suitable to apply the theory of regularity structures. Our main contribution is to study the dependence of the model space for a regularity structure on the three-parameter problem involving the spatial dimension, the polynomial order of the nonlinearity and the exponent of the fractional Laplacian. The goal is to investigate the growth of the model space under parameter variation. In particular, we prove several results in the approaching subcriticality limit leading to universal growth exponents of the regularity structure. A key role is played by the viewpoint that model spaces can be identified with families of rooted trees. Our proofs are based upon a geometrical construction similar to Newton polygons for classical Taylor series and various combinatorial arguments. We also present several explicit examples listing all elements with negative homogeneity by implementing a new symbolic software package to work with regularity structures. We use this package to illustrate our analytical results and to obtain new conjectures regarding coarse-grained network measures for model spaces.

Let $F$ be a non-discrete non-Archimedean local field. For any subset $S\subset F$ with finite Haar measure, there is a stationary determinantal point process on $F$ with correlation kernel $\widehat{\mathbb{1}}_S(x-y)$, where $\widehat{\mathbb{1}}_S$ is the Fourier transform of the indicator function $\mathbb{1}_S$. In this note, we give a geometrical condition on the subset $S$, such that the associated determinantal point process is rigid in the sense of Ghosh and Peres. Read More


We show that every symmetric random variable with log-concave tails satisfies the convex infimum convolution inequality with an optimal cost function (up to scaling). As a result, we obtain nearly optimal comparison of weak and strong moments for symmetric random vectors with independent coordinates with log-concave tails. Read More


We study the large time behaviour of the mass (size) of particles described by the fragmentation equation with homogeneous breakup kernel. We give necessary and sufficient conditions for the convergence of solutions to the unique self-similar solution. Read More


For spectrally negative L\'evy processes, we prove several results involving a general draw-down time from the running maximum. In particular, we find expressions of Laplace transforms for two-sided exit problems involving the draw-down time. We also find Laplace transforms for hitting time and creeping time over a maximum related draw-down level, and an associated potential measure. Read More


Meerschaert and Sabzikar [12], [13] introduced tempered fractional Brownian/stable motion (TFBM/TFSM) by including an exponential tempering factor in the moving average representation of FBM/FSM. The present paper discusses another tempered version of FBM/FSM, termed tempered fractional Brownian/stable motion of second kind (TFBM II/TFSM II).We prove that TFBM/TFSM and TFBM II/TFSM II are different processes.

Random matrices like GUE, GOE and GSE have been studied for decades and have been shown that they possess a lot of nice properties. In 2005, a new property of independent GUE random matrices is discovered by Haagerup and Thorbj{\o}rnsen in their paper [18], it is called strong convergence property and then more random matrices with this property are followed (see [27], [5], [1], [24], [10] and [3]). In general, the definition can be stated for a sequence of tuples over some \text{C}^{\ast}-algebras. Read More


We investigate a general relation between stationary product measures and factorized (self-)duality functions. This yields a constructive approach to find (self-)duality functions from the stationary product measures. We introduce a new generating function approach which simplifies the search for (self-)duality functions. Read More


We consider an exclusion process with long jumps in the box $\Lambda_N=\{1, \ldots,N-1\}$, for $N \ge 2$, in contact with infinitely extended reservoirs on its left and on its right. The jump rate is described by a transition probability $p(\cdot)$ which is symmetric, with infinite support but with finite variance. The reservoirs add or remove particles with rate proportional to $\kappa N^{-\theta}$, where $\kappa>0$ and $\theta \in \mathbb{R}$. Read More


We prove a strong duality result for a linear programming problem which has the interpretation of being a discretised optimal Skorokhod embedding problem, and we recover this continuous time problem as a limit of the discrete problems. With the discrete setup we show that for a suitably chosen objective function, the optimiser takes the form of a hitting time for a random walk. In the limiting problem we then reprove the existence of the Root, Rost, and cave embedding solutions of the Skorokhod embedding problem. Read More


A leveraged exchange traded fund (LETF) is an exchange traded fund that uses financial derivatives to amplify the price changes of a basket of goods. In this paper, we consider the robust hedging of European options on a LETF, finding model-free bounds on the price of these options. To obtain an upper bound, we establish a new optimal solution to the Skorokhod embedding problem (SEP) using methods introduced in Beiglb\"ock-Cox-Huesmann. Read More
