This paper concerns with some of the results related to the singular solutions of certain types of non-linear integrable differential equations (NIDE) and behavior of the singularities of those equations. The approach heavily relies on the Method of Operator Identities which proved to be a powerful tool in different areas such as interpolation problems, spectral analysis, inverse spectral problems, dynamic systems, non-linear equations. We formulate and solve a number of problems (direct and inverse) related to the singular solutions of sinh-Gordon, non-linear Schr\"{o}dinger and modified Korteweg - de Vries equations. Read More


We consider an abstract pseudo-Hamiltonian for the nuclear optical model, given by a dissipative operator of the form $H = H_V - i C^* C$, where $H_V = H_0 + V$ is self-adjoint and $C$ is a bounded operator. We study the wave operators associated to $H$ and $H_0$. We prove that they are asymptotically complete if and only if $H$ does not have spectral singularities on the real axis. Read More


We consider sequences of random quantum channels defined using the Stinespring formula with Haar-distributed random orthogonal matrices. For any fixed sequence of input states, we study the asymptotic eigenvalue distribution of the outputs through tensor powers of random channels. We show that the input states achieving minimum output entropy are tensor products of maximally entangled states (Bell states) when the tensor power is even. Read More


For a determinantal point process induced by the reproducing kernel of the weighted Bergman space $A^2(U, \omega)$ over a domain $U \subset \mathbb{C}^d$, we establish the mutual absolute continuity of reduced Palm measures of any order provided that the domain $U$ contains a non-constant bounded holomorphic function. The result holds in all dimensions. The argument uses the $H^\infty(U)$-module structure of $A^2(U, \omega)$. Read More


We present a detailed analysis of the orbital stability of the Pais-Uhlenbeck oscillator, using Lie-Deprit series and Hamiltonian normal form theories. In particular, we explicitly describe the reduced phase space for this Hamiltonian system and give a proof for the existence of stable orbits for a certain class of self-interaction, found numerically in previous works. Read More


We demonstrate that the geometric volume of a soliton coincides with the thermodynamical volume also for field theories with higher-dimensional vacuum manifolds (e.g., for gauged scalar field theories supporting vortices or monopoles). Read More


In this paper we study the probability distribution of the position of a tagged particle in the $q$-deformed Totally Asymmetric Zero Range Process ($q$-TAZRP) with site dependent jumping rates. For a finite particle system, it is derived from the transition probability previously obtained by Wang and Waugh. We also provide the probability distribution formula for a tagged particle in the $q$-TAZRP with the so-called step initial condition in which infinitely many particles occupy one single site and all other sites are unoccupied. Read More


For the multi-particle Anderson model with correlated random potential in the continuum, we show under fairly general assumptions on the inter-particle interaction and the random external potential, the Anderson localization which consists of both the spectral, exponential localization and the strong dynamical localization. The localization results are proven near the lower spectral edge of the almost sure spectrum and the proofs require the uniform log-H\"older continuity assumption of the probability distribution functions of the random field in addition of the Rosenblatt's strongly mixing condition.

We consider Pauli--Dirac fermion submitted to an inhomogeneous magnetic field. It is showed that the propagator of the neutral Dirac particle with an anomalous magnetic moment in an external linear magnetic field is the causal Green function $S^{c}(x_{b},x_{a})$ of the Pauli--Dirac equation. The corresponding Green function is calculated via path integral method in global projection, giving rise to the exact eigenspinors expressions. Read More


We revisit the notion of quantum Lie algebra of symmetries of a noncommutative spacetime, its elements are shown to be the generators of infinitesimal transformations and are naturally identified with physical observables. Wave equations on noncommutative spaces are derived from a quantum Hodge star operator. This general noncommutative geometry construction is then exemplified in the case of k-Minkowski spacetime. Read More


We propose a general method to construct symmetric tensor polynomials in the D-dimensional Euclidean space which are orthonormal under a general weight. The D-dimensional Hermite polynomials are a particular case of the present ones for the case of a gaussian weight. Hence we obtain generalizations of the Legendre and of the Chebyshev polynomials in D dimensions that reduce to the respective well-known orthonormal polynomials in D=1 dimensions. Read More


Within the recent reformulation of quantum mechanics where a potential function is not required, we show how to reconstruct the potential so that a correspondence with the standard formulation could be established. However, severe restriction is placed by the correspondence on the kinematics of such problems. Read More


We construct a linear system non-local game which can be played perfectly using a limit of finite-dimensional quantum strategies, but which cannot be played perfectly on any finite-dimensional Hilbert space, or even with any tensor-product strategy. In particular, this shows that the set of (tensor-product) quantum correlations is not closed. The constructed non-local game provides another counterexample to the "middle" Tsirelson problem, with a shorter proof than our previous paper (though at the loss of the universal embedding theorem). Read More


Let Bun_G be the moduli space of G-bundles on a smooth complex projective curve. Motivated by a study of boundary conditions in mirror symmetry, D. Gaiotto associated to any symplectic representation of G a Lagrangian subvariety of T^*Bun_G. Read More


This is the first of two articles on the study of a particle system model that exhibits a Turing instability type effect. The model is based on two discrete lines (or toruses) with Ising spins, that evolve according to a continuous time Markov process defined in terms of macroscopic Kac potentials and local interactions. For fixed time, we prove that the density fields weakly converge to the solution of a system of partial differential equations involving convolutions. Read More


We study the spectral properties of the energy of the motion of the quantum Mixmaster universe in the anisotropy potential. We first derive the explicit asymptotic expressions for the spectrum in the limit of large and small volumes of the universe. Then we rigorously prove that the spectrum is purely discrete for any volume of the universe. Read More


We present a list of formulae useful for Weyl-Heisenberg integral quantizations, with arbitrary weight, of functions or distributions on the plane. Most of these formulae are known, others are original. The list encompasses particular cases like Weyl-Wigner quantization (constant weight) and coherent states (CS) or Berezin quantization (Gaussian weight). Read More


D. Ruelle considered a general setting where he is able to describe a formulation of the concept of Gibbs state based on conjugating homeomorphism in the so called Smale spaces. On this setting he shows a relation of KMS states of $C^*$-algebras and equilibrium probabilities of Thermodynamic Formalism. Read More


This paper investigates bicovariant differential calculus on noncommutative spaces of the Lie algebra type. For a given Lie algebra $g_0$ we construct a Lie superalgebra $g=g_0\oplus g_1$ containing noncommutative coordinates and one--forms. We show that $g$ can be extended by a set of generators $T_{AB}$ whose action on the enveloping algebra $U(g)$ gives the commutation relations between monomials in $U(g_0)$ and one--forms. Read More


In this thesis we study properties of open quantum dissipative evolutions of spin systems on lattices described by Lindblad generators, in a particular regime that we denote rapid mixing. We consider dissipative evolutions with a unique fixed point, and which compress the whole space of input states into increasingly small neighborhoods of the fixed point. The time scale at which this compression takes place, or in other words the time we have to wait for any input state to become almost indistinguishable from the fixed point, is called the mixing time of the process. Read More


We investigate the nonequilibrium steady state (NESS) in an open quantum XXZ chain with strong $XY$ plane boundary polarization gradient. Using the general theory developed in [1], we show that in the critical $XXZ$ $|\Delta|<1$ easy plane case, the steady current in large systems under strong driving shows resonance-like behaviour, by an infinitesimal change of the spin chain anisotropy or other parameters. Alternatively, by fine tuning the system parameters and varying the boundary dissipation strength, we observe a change of the NESS current from diffusive (of order $1/N$, for small dissipation strength) to ballistic regime (of order 1, for large dissipation strength).

The cuscuton was introduced in the context of cosmology as a field with infinite speed of propagation. It has been claimed to resemble Ho\v{r}ava gravity in a certain limit, and it is a good candidate for an ether theory in which a time-dependent cosmological constant appears naturally. The analysis of its properties is usually performed in the Lagrangian framework, which makes issues like the counting of its dynamical degrees of freedom less clear-cut. Read More


We study the global symmetries of naive lattices Dirac operators in QCD-like theories in any dimension larger than two. In particular we investigate how the chosen number of lattice sites in each direction affects the global symmetries of the Dirac operator. These symmetries are important since they do not only determine the infra-red spectrum of the Dirac operator but also the symmetry breaking pattern and, thus, the lightest pseudo-scalar mesons.

A one-channel operator is a self-adjoint operator on $\ell^2(\mathbb{G})$ for some countable set $\mathbb{G}$ with a rank 1 transition structure along the sets of a quasi-spherical partition of $\mathbb{G}$. Jacobi operators are a very special case. In essence, there is only one channel through which waves can travel across the shells to infinity. Read More


Working in the abstract framework of Mourre theory, we derive a pair of propagation estimates for scattering states at certain energies of a Hamiltonian H. The propagation of these states is understood in terms of a conjugate operator A. A similar estimate has long been known for Hamiltonians having a good regularity with respect to A thanks to the limiting absorption principle (LAP). Read More


We prove the existence of a discrete correlation spectrum for Morse-Smaleflows acting on smooth forms on a compact manifold. This is done by constructing spacesof currents with anisotropic Sobolev regularity on which the Lie derivative has a discretespectrum. Read More


The goal of the present work is to compute explicitely the correlation spectrum of a Morse-Smale flow in terms of the Lyapunov exponents of the Morse--Smale flow, the topology of the flow around periodic orbits and the monodromy of some given flat connection. The corresponding eigenvalues exhibit vertical bands when the flow has periodic orbits. As a corollary, we obtain sharp Weyl asymptotics for the dynamical resonances. Read More


We prove that the twisted De Rham cohomology of a flat vector bundleover some smooth manifold is isomorphic to the cohomology of invariant Pollicott--Ruelleresonant states associated with Anosov and Morse--Smale flows. As a consequence, weobtain generalized Morse inequalities for such flows. In the case of Morse--Smale flows,we relate the resonances lying on the imaginary axis with the twisted Fuller measuresused by Fried in his work on Reidemeister torsion. Read More


As lattice analogs of fractional quantum Hall systems, fractional Chern insulators (FCIs) exhibit enigmatic physical properties resulting from the intricate interplay between single-body and many-body physics. In particular, the design of ideal Chern band structures as hosts for FCIs necessitates the joint consideration of energy, topology, and quantum geometry of the Chern band. We devise an analytical optimization scheme that generates prototypical FCI models satisfying the criteria of band flatness, homogeneous Berry curvature, and isotropic quantum geometry. Read More


Applying the approach based on the equation for the derivative, we construct several expansions of the solutions of the general Heun equation in terms of the incomplete Beta functions. Several expansions in terms of the Appell generalized hypergeometric functions of two variables of the fist kind are also presented. The constructed expansions are applicable for arbitrary sets of the involved parameters. Read More


The paper addresses the exact evaluation of the generalized Stieltjes transform $S_{\lambda}[f]=\int_0^{\infty} f(x) (\omega+x)^{-\lambda}\mathrm{d}x$ about $\omega =0$ from which the asymptotic behavior of $S_{\lambda}[f]$ for small parameters $\omega$ is directly extracted. An attempt to evaluate the integral by expanding the integrand $(\omega+x)^{-\lambda}$ about $\omega=0$ and then naively integrating the resulting infinite series term by term lead to an infinite series whose terms are divergent integrals. Assigning values to the divergent integrals, say, by analytic continuation or by Hadamard's finite parts is known to reproduce only some of the correct terms of the expansion but completely misses out a group of terms. Read More


In this paper we consider models with nearest-neighbor interactions and with the set [0,1] of spin values, on a Bethe lattice (Cayley tree) of an arbitrary order. These models depend on parameter $\theta$. We describe all of Gibbs measures in any right parameter $\theta$ corresponding to the models. Read More


We give explicit Fredholm conditions for classes of pseudodifferential operators on suitable singular and non-compact spaces. In particular, we include a "user's guide" to Fredholm conditions on particular classes of manifolds including asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds, asymptotically Euclidean (or conic) manifolds, and manifolds with poly-cylindrical ends. The reader interested in applications should be able read right away the results related to those examples, beginning with Section 5. Read More


A third order real tensor is called a piezoelectric-type tensor if it is partially symmetric with respect to its last two indices. The piezoelectric tensor is a piezoelectric-type tensor of dimension three. We introduce C-eigenvalues and C-eigenvectors for piezoelectric-type tensors. Read More


In this paper we study certain integrability properties of the supersymmetric sine-Gordon equation. We construct Lax pairs with their zero-curvature representations which are equivalent to the supersymmetric sine-Gordon equation. From the fermionic linear spectral problem, we derive coupled sets of super Riccati equations and the auto-B\"acklund transformation of the supersymmetric sine-Gordon equation. Read More


We introduce and study a class of partition functions of integrable lattice models with triangular boundary. By using the $U_q(sl_2)$ $R$-matrix and a special class of the triangular $K$-matrix, we first introduce an analogue of the wavefunctions of the integrable six-vertex model with triangular boundary. We give a characterization of the wavefunctions by extending our recent work of the Izergin-Korepin analysis of the domain wall boundary partition function with triangular boundary. Read More


We study a semi-linear version of the Skyrme system due to Adkins and Nappi. The objects in this system are maps from $(1+3)$-dimensional Minkowski space into the $3$-sphere and 1-forms on $\mathbb{R}^{1+3}$, coupled via a Lagrangian action. Under a co-rotational symmetry reduction we establish the existence, uniqueness, and unconditional asymptotic stability of a family of stationary solutions $Q_n$, indexed by the topological degree $n \in \mathbb{N} \cup \{0\}$ of the underlying map. Read More


We investigate uniqueness of weak solutions for a system of partial differential equations capturing behavior of magnetoelastic materials. This system couples the Navier-Stokes equations with evolutionary equations for the deformation gradient and for the magnetization obtained from a special case of the micromagnetic energy. It turns out that the conditions on uniqueness coincide with those for the well-known Navier-Stokes equations in bounded domains: weak solutions are unique in two spatial dimensions, and weak solutions satisfying the Prodi-Serrin conditions are unique among all weak solutions in three dimensions. Read More


Let $X$ be a compact connected Riemann surface of genus at least two, and let ${\mathcal Q}_X(r,d)$ be the quot scheme that parametrizes all the torsion coherent quotients of ${\mathcal O}^{\oplus r}_X$ of degree $d$. This ${\mathcal Q}_X(r,d)$ is also a moduli space of vortices on $X$. Its geometric properties have been extensively studied. Read More


We consider the operator ${\mathcal A}_h=-\Delta+iV$ in the semi-classical $h\rightarrow 0$, where $V$ is a smooth real potential with no critical points. We obtain both the left margin of the spectrum, as well as resolvent estimates on the left side of this margin. We extend here previous results obtained for the Dirichlet realization of ${\mathcal A}_h$ by removing significant limitations that were formerly imposed on $V$. Read More


In this paper, we construct the fundamental solution to a degenerate diffusion of Kolmogorov type and develop a time-discrete variational scheme for its adjoint equation. The so-called mean squared derivative cost function plays a crucial role occurring in both the fundamental solution and the variational scheme. The latter is implemented by minimizing a free energy functional with respect to the Kantorovich optimal transport cost functional associated with the mean squared derivative cost. Read More


On an infinite, radial metric tree graph we consider the corresponding Laplacian equipped with self-adjoint vertex conditions from a large class including $\delta$- and weighted $\delta'$-couplings. Assuming the numbers of different edge lengths, branching numbers and different coupling conditions to be finite, we prove that the presence of absolutely continuous spectrum implies that the sequence of geometric data of the tree as well as the coupling conditions are eventually periodic. On the other hand, we provide examples of self-adjoint, non-periodic couplings which admit absolutely continuous spectrum. Read More


We study asymptotics of $q$-distributed random lozenge tilings of sawtooth domains (equivalently, of random interlacing integer arrays with fixed top row). Under the distribution we consider each tiling is weighted proportionally to $q^{\mathsf{vol}}$, where $\mathsf{vol}$ is the volume under the corresponding 3D stepped surface. We prove the following Interlacing Central Limit Theorem: as $q\rightarrow1$, the domain gets large, and the fixed top row approximates a given nonrandom profile, the vertical lozenges are distributed as the eigenvalues of a GUE random matrix and of its successive principal corners. Read More


We study many-body localization properties of the disordered XXZ spin chain in the Ising phase. Disorder is introduced via a random magnetic field in the $z$-direction. We prove a strong form of exponential clustering for eigenstates in the droplet spectrum: For any pair of local observables separated by a distance $\ell$, the sum of the associated correlators over these states decays exponentially in $\ell$, in expectation. Read More


In this paper, we study traveling wave solutions and peakon weak solutions of the modified Camassa-Holm (mCH) equation with dispersive term $2ku_x$ for $k\in\mathbb{R}$. We study traveling wave solutions through a Hamiltonian system obtained from the mCH equation by using a nonlinear transformation. The typical traveling wave solutions given by this Hamiltonian system are unbounded or multi-valued. Read More


Nowadays projective quantum states can be constructed for a number of field theories including Loop Quantum Gravity. However, these states are kinematic in this sense that their construction does not take into account the dynamics of the theories. In particular, the construction neglects constraints on phase spaces. Read More


We give identifications of the $q$-deformed Segal-Bargmann transform and define the Segal-Bargmann transform on mixed $q$-Gaussian variables. We prove that, when defined on the random matrix model of \'Sniady for the $q$-Gaussian variable, the classical Segal-Bargmann transform converges to the $q$-deformed Segal-Bargmann transform in the large $N$ limit. We also show that the $q$-deformed Segal-Bargmann transform can be recovered as a limit of a mixture of classical and free Segal-Bargmann transform. Read More


A geometric entropy is defined as the Riemannian volume of the parameter space of a statistical manifold associated with a given network. As such it can be a good candidate for measuring networks complexity. Here we investigate its ability to single out topological features of networks proceeding in a bottom-up manner: first we consider small size networks by analytical methods and then large size networks by numerical techniques. Read More


We generalize the method of computing functional determinants with excluded zero mode developed by McKane and Tarlie to the differential operators with degenerate zero modes. We consider a $2\times 2$ matrix differential operator with two independent zero modes and show that its functional determinant can be expressed only in terms of these modes in the spirit of Gel'fand-Yaglom approach. Our result can be easily extended to the case of $N\times N$ matrix differential operators with $N$ zero modes. Read More


We consider the Thomas--Fermi--Dirac--von Weizs{\"a}cker model for a system composed of infinitely many nuclei placed on a periodic lattice and electrons with a periodic density. We prove that if the Dirac constant is small enough, the electrons have the same periodicity as the nuclei. On the other hand if the Dirac constant is large enough, the 2-periodic electronic minimizer is not 1-periodic, hence symmetry breaking occurs. Read More
