DESCRIPTION:Title: Maximal directional singular integrals\nby Natalia Acco
mazzo Scotti (University of the Basque Country - University of British Col

Maximal directional operators are formed by taking a one-dimensional opera
tor acting along a line\, and then studying the maximal value as the line
changes through a set of directions. One important example of this type of
operators is when we consider the one arising from the maximal function\,
which we can find has been broadly studied in the literature. In this tal
k we will review a little bit the history of these operators and we will g
ive some new results on the operator that arises from a singular integral.

f$ has independent translates if $\\{L_xf : x ∈ E\\}$ is linearly indepe

DESCRIPTION:Title: Sharp endpoint estimates for eigenfunctions restricted to
submanifolds of codimension 2\nby Cheng Zhang (University of Rochester
) as part of CUNY Harmonic Analysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nBurq-
Gérard-Tzvetkov and Hu established $L^p$ estimates ($2\\le p\\le \\infty$
) for the restriction of eigenfunctions to submanifolds. The estimates are
sharp\, except for the log loss at the endpoint $L^2$ estimates for subma
nifolds of codimension 2. It has long been believed that the log loss at t
he endpoint can be removed in general\, while the problem is still open. S
o in this talk we will talk about the study of sharp endpoint restriction
estimates for eigenfunctions in this case. Recall that Chen-Sogge removed
the log loss for the geodesics on 3-dimensional manifolds. In a joint work
with Xing Wang\, we generalize their result to higher dimensions and prov
e that the log loss can be removed for totally geodesic submanifolds of co
dimension 2. Moreover\, on 3-dimensional manifolds\, we can remove the log
loss for curves with nonvanishing geodesic curvatures\, and more general
finite type curves. The problem in 3D is essentially related to Hilbert tr
ansforms along curves in the plane and a class of singular oscillatory int
egrals studied by Phong-Stein\, Ricci-Stein\, Pan\, Seeger\, Carbery-Pére

\nby Máté Vizer (Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics\, Hungary) as p

roperty of a given bounded measurable subset $T \\subset \\mathbf{R}^d$. I
t states that $T$ accepts a complete orthogonal basis of exponential funct
ions if and only if it tiles $\\mathbf{R}^d$ by translations. This conject
ure has been disproved by Tao in 2004. The counterexample has been achieve
d by lifting counterexamples of Fuglede's conjecture in finite abelian gro
ups to counterexamples in Euclidean spaces.\n\n \nThis connection motivate
d researchers to pay more attention to the discrete version of Fuglede's c
onjecture. I would like to briefly overview recent progress on this conjec
ture\, including some work of the speaker\, that is joint with Kiss\, Mali

DESCRIPTION:Title: On the Fuglede conjecture for the product of elementary ab
elian groups over prime fields\nby Gergely Kiss (Alfréd Rényi Instit
ute of Mathematics\, Hungary) as part of CUNY Harmonic Analysis and PDE's
Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nFuglede in 1974 conjectured that a bounded domain $
S \\subset \\mathbb{R}^d$\ntiles the $d$-dimensional\nEuclidean space if a
nd only if the set of functions in $L^2(S)$ admits an orthogonal\nbasis of
exponential functions.\n\nIn my talk we will focus on the discrete versio
n of Fuglede’s conjecture that can be formulated as follows. Let $G$ be
a finite Abelian group $G$ and $\\widehat{G}$ the set of characters of $G$
\, indexed by the elements of $G$. Then $S\\subset G$ is *spectral* i
f and only if there exists a $\\Lambda\\in G$ such that ($\\chi_l)_{l\\in
\\Lambda}$ is an orthogonal base of complex valued functions defined on $S
$.\nFor a finite group $G$ and a subset $S$ of $G$ we say that $S$ is *a
tile* of $G$ if there is a $T \\subset G$ such that $S+T=G$ and $|S|\\
cdot |T|=|G|$. The discrete version Fuglede conjecture states that for an
abelian group $G$ a subset $S$ is spectral if and only if $S$ is a tile.\n
\nI will talk about the Fuglede conjecture for the product of elementary a
belian groups over prime fields. The importance of this particular case ca
n be illustrated with the fact that Fuglede's original conjecture were dis
proved first by Tao and his proof is based on a counterexample for the dis
crete Fuglede conjecture on elementary abelian $p$-groups.\n\nFirst I will
summarize the known results concerning the product of elementary abelian
groups over prime fields. In the second part of my talk I will present our
recent result which shows that the discrete Fuglede conjecture holds on\n
$\\mathbb{Z}_p^2 \\times \\mathbb{Z}_q$\, where $p$ and $q$ are different
primes.\n\n(joint work with **Gábor Somlai**)\n

Abstract\nIn this talk we examine computationally a continuous data assimi

lly\, we look at using the Azouani-Olson-Titi data assimilation algorithm
in the context of measurement devices which move in time\, such as satelli
tes or drones. We find that\, in the context of the 1D Allen-Cahn equation
s\, by moving the sampling points dynamically\, we can greatly reduce the
number of sampling points required\, while achieving better accuracy. Addi
tionally we look at the adaptation of this algorithm to the 2D Incompressi
ble Navier-Stokes equations using observers that move according to various
regimes\, where we obtain similar results.\n

act\nA major trend in Non-commutative Harmonic Analysis is to investigate
function spaces related to Fourier analysis (and representation theory) of
non-abelian groups.\nThe Fourier algebra\, which is associated with the l
eft regular representation of the ambient group\, is an important example
of such function spaces. This function algebra encodes the properties of t
he group in various ways\; for instance the existence of derivations on th
is algebra translates into information about the commutativity of the grou
p itself. \n\nIn this talk\, we investigate the Fourier algebra of the gro
up of ${\\mathbb R}$-affine transformations. In particular\, we discuss t
he non-commutative Fourier transform for this group\, and provide an expl
icit formula for the convolution product on the "dual side" of this transf
orm. As an application of this new dual convolution product\, we show an e
asy dual formulation for (the only known) symmetric derivative on the Four
ier algebra of the group. \n\nThis talk is mainly based on joint articles

eminar\n\n\nAbstract\nSuppose $E$ is an arbitrary subset of $R^n$. Let $f:
E \\rightarrow [0\, \\infty)$. How can we decide if $f$ extends to a no
nnegative $C^m$ function $F$ defined on all of $R^n$? Suppose $E$ is finit
e. Can we compute a nonnegative $C^m$ function $F$ on $R^n$ that agrees wi
th $f$ on $E$ with the least possible $C^m$ norm? How many computer operat
ions does this take? In this talk\, I will explain recent results on these
problems. Non-negativity is one of the most important shape preserving pr
operties for interpolants. In real life applications\, the range of the in
terpolant is imposed by nature. For example\, probability density\, the am
ount of snow\, rain\, humidity\, chemical concentration are all nonnegativ
e quantities and are of interest in natural sciences. Even in one dimensio
n\, the existing techniques can only handle nonnegative interpolation unde
r special assumptions on the data set. Our results work without any assump
tions on the data sets.\n

DE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nAbstract:\nIn this talk we discuss how to cons
truct Parseval wavelet frames in $L^2(M)$ for a general Riemannian manifol
d $M$. We also show the existence of wavelet unconditional frames in $L^p(
M)$ for $1 < p <\\infty$. This construction is made possible thanks to smo
oth orthogonal projection decomposition of the identity operator on $L^2(M
)$\, which is an operator version of a smooth partition of unity. We also
show some applications such as a characterization of Triebel-Lizorkin $F_{
p\,q}^s(M)$ and Besov $B_{p\,q}^s(M)$ spaces on compact manifolds in terms
of magnitudes of coefficients of Parseval wavelet frames. This talk is ba

ful in a wide range of applications but operate more-or-less as black boxe
s. Mathematicians have an opportunity to crack the mystery. In this talk\,
after a gentle introduction to neural networks\, three approaches to math
ematically analyze neural networks will be presented. First\, singular va
lues will be generalized to better understand the inherent rank of weight
matrices in a certain type of neural network. Second\, a tool from high-di
mensional geometry\, Gaussian mean width\, will be shown empirically to di
stinguish between correctly and incorrectly classified data as they travel
through a neural network. Finally\, we will analyze approximation proper
ties of spaces of neural networks of a fixed architecture.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Sharpness of Falconer-type estimates for dot products\
nby Steven Senger (Missouri State University) as part of CUNY Harmonic Ana
lysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn 1985\, Falconer conjectured that
if a subset has Hausdorff dimension sufficiently high with respect to the
ambient dimension\, then the Lebesgue measure of the set of distances it
determines should be positive. His first partial result toward this end hi
nged on a lemma showing that if a measure satisfies an energy condition re
lated to the ambient dimension\, then its support must not have a high con
centration of points separated by any given distance. Since then\, this le
mma has been explored in other contexts\, and serves as a bit of a litmus
test on how much we can say about various functionals under similar circum
stances. We employ techniques from discrete geometry to construct a family
of sharpness examples showing that this energy condition is sharp in the
analogous problem for dot products.\n

erfacial instabilities\nby Pooja Rao (The State University of New York
at Stony Brook) as part of CUNY Harmonic Analysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n\n
Abstract\nHydrodynamic instabilities\, such as the shock-driven Richtmyer-
Meshkov instability (RMI) and the gravity-driven Rayleigh-Taylor instabili
ty (RTI)\, occur in unstable configurations where the density differs bet
ween two fluids. The physical interface between two fluids is imperfect a
nd the localized perturbations give rise to the growth of these instabilit
ies when accelerated either via shock or gravity.\n\nThese instabilities p
lay a critical role in numerous applications ranging from performance degr
adation in inertial confinement fusion (ICF) capsules to supernova explosi
ons. Oftentimes\, they occur in tandem\, such as in the ICF experiments.\n
\nTo accurately model the instability growth requires special treatment of
the discrete representation of the interface between the two fluids. Usin
g one such numerical approach\, Front-tracking\, we investigate a simplifi
ed representation of the instability growth in inertial confinement experi
ments\, focusing on the growth profile of a Rayleigh-Taylor instability wh
ich is seeded by a Richtmyer-Meshkov instability.\n

\nWe develop a theory of self-similar solutions to the critical surface qu

rily large data in various regularity classes and demonstrate\, in the sma
ll data regime\, uniqueness and global asymptotic stability. These solutio
ns are non-decaying in space which leads to ambiguity in the drift velocit
y. This ambiguity is corrected by imposing m-fold rotational symmetry. The
self-similar solutions exhibited here lie just beyond the known well-pose

due to symmetry-breaking bifurcations\, in analogy with work of Jia and Sv

DESCRIPTION:Title: An Autoencoder and Reduced Basis for Dynamical Systems
\nby David Sondak (Harvard University) as part of CUNY Harmonic Analysis a
nd PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe governing equations of nature are near
ly always nonlinear and often exhibit chaos. Nevertheless\, scientists and
engineers must still make informative predictions based on solutions to t
he governing equations. One promising approach for making predictions in r
egimes of scientific interest is to develop reliable reduced models of the
physics. These models should be fast and easy to compute while respecting
the\nunderlying dynamics of the system. The present work leverages the ex
pressibility of modern machine learning models to learn a basis for the re
duced space of dynamical systems. An autoencoder with a sparsity-promoting
latent space penalization is trained on data from the periodic Kuramoto-S
ivashinsky (K-S) equation and the damped and undamped KdV equations. It is
shown that the dimension of the learned reduced space is consistent with
that of the inertial manifold for the K-S equation. From here\, a nonlinea
r basis is determined for the K-S equation from the trained autoencoder mo
del. For the KdV equations\, it is shown\, over a large range of damping c
oefficients\, that the autoencoder learns a reduced manifold and that the
dimension of this manifold\ndecreases with increasing damping coefficient.

DESCRIPTION:Title: The role of energy dissipation in modeling turbulence\
nby Ali Pakzad (Indiana University Bloomington) as part of CUNY Harmonic A
nalysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nA distinguishing feature of turbu
lent flows is the emergence of complicated chaotic structures involving a
wide range of length scales. Simulating all these scales is infeasible for
practical problems\, such as simulating storm fronts and hurricanes using
direct numerical simulation. To overcome this difficulty\, turbulence mod
els\, which model the universal effect of small scales on large scales\, a
re introduced to account for sub-mesh scale effects on a coarse mesh. Key
to getting a good approximation for a turbulence model is to correctly cal
ibrate the energy dissipation in the model on a coarse mesh. Energy dissip
ation rates of various turbulence models have been analyzed but assuming a
super-fine mesh.\n\nIn this talk\, I present a calculation of the energy
dissipation in a turbulence model discretized on a coarse mesh. Motivated
by this result\, I will show how the Smagorinsky model\, a common turbulen
ce model used in Large Eddy Simulation\, can be modified for better perfor
mance. If time allows\, I would describe some recent results in this direc
tion for shear driven turbulence with noise at the boundary.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Diffuse Interface modeling for two-phase flows: from the m
odel H to the AGG model\nby Andrea Giorgini (Indiana University Bloomi
ngton) as part of CUNY Harmonic Analysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\n
In the last decades\, the Diffuse Interface theory (also known as Phase Fi
eld theory) has made significant progresses in the description of multi-ph
ase flows from modeling to numerical simulations. A particularly active to
pic has been the development of thermodynamically consistent models extend
ing the well-known Model H in the case of unmatched fluid densities. In th
is talk\, I will focus on the AGG model proposed by H. Abels\, H. Garcke a
nd G. Grün in 2012. The model consists of a Navier-Stokes-Cahn-Hilliard s
ystem characterized by a concentration-dependent density and an additional
flux term due to interface diffusion. Using the method of matched asympto
tic expansions\, the sharp interface limit of the AGG model corresponds to
the two-phase Navier-Stokes equations. In the literature\, the analysis o
f the AGG system has only been focused on the existence of weak solutions.
During the seminar\, I will present the first results concerning the exis
tence\, uniqueness and stability of strong solutions for the AGG model in
two dimensions.\n

ar\n\n\nAbstract\nThis talk is based on recent works in which we study the
dissipative generalized surface quasi-geostrophic equations in a supercri

of the velocity\, and the velocities are less regular than the advected s
calar by up to one order of derivative. The existence and uniqueness theor
y of these equations in the borderline Sobolev spaces is addressed\, as we
ll as the instantaneous Gevrey class smoothing of their corresponding solu
tions. These results appear to be the first of its kind for a quasilinear
parabolic equation whose coefficients are of higher order than its linear
term. The main tool is the use of an approximation scheme suitably adapted
to preserve the underlying commutator structure. We also study a family o
f inviscid generalized SQG equations where the velocities have been mildly
regularized\, for instance\, logarithmically. The well-posedness of these
equations in borderline Sobolev spaces is addressed.\n

tudy the semiclassical limit of the sine-Gordon (sG) equation with below t
hreshold pure impulse initial data of Klaus-Shaw type. The Whitham average
d approximation of this system exhibits a gradient catastrophe in finite t

und that in an O(ε4/5) neighborhood near the gradient catastrophe point\,
the asymptotics of the sG solution are universally described by the Painl
evé I tritronquée solution. A linear map can be explicitly made from the
tritronquée solution to this neighborhood. Under this map: away from the
tritronquée poles\, the first correction of sG is universally given by t
he real part of the Hamiltonian of the tritronquée solution\; localized d
efects appear at locations mapped from the poles of tritronquée solution\
; the defects are proved universally to be a two parameter family of speci

DESCRIPTION:Title: High-Order Rogue Waves and Solitons\, and Solutions Interp
olating Between Them\nby Deniz Bilman (University of Cincinnati) as pa
rt of CUNY Harmonic Analysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIt is known
from our recent work that both fundamental rogue wave solutions (with Pete
r Miller and Liming Ling) and multi-pole soliton solutions (with R. Buckin
gham) of the nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation exhibit the same asympt
otic behavior in the limit of large order in a shrinking region near the p
eak amplitude point\, despite the quite different boundary conditions thes
e solutions satisfy at infinity. We show how rogue waves and solitons of a
rbitrary orders can be placed within a common analytical framework in whic
h the ''order'' becomes a continuous parameter\, allowing one to tune cont
inuously between types of solutions satisfying different boundary conditio
ns. In this scheme\, solitons and rogue waves of increasing integer orders
alternate as the continuous order parameter increases. We show that in a
bounded region of the space-time of size proportional to the order\, these
solutions all appear to be the same when the order is large. However\, in
the unbounded complementary region one sees qualitatively different asymp
totic behavior along different sequences. In this talk we focus on the beh
avior in this exterior region. The asymptotic behavior is most interesting
for solutions that are neither rogue waves nor solitons. This is joint wo
rk with Peter Miller.\n

Young University) as part of CUNY Harmonic Analysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n
\nAbstract\nA well-known conserved quantity of the Navier-Stokes equations
is the total energy. This conservation law has been used extensively in t
he local regularity theory\, especially since the groundbreaking work of C
affarelli-Kohn-Nirenberg in 1982. In the Fourier space\, the Navier-Stokes
equations are naturally associated with a stochastic cascade as noted by
Le Jan and Sznitman in 1997. In the dynamic of this stochastic cascade\, t
he initial frequency is conserved. In this talk\, I will explain how the c
onservation of frequencies can be used to study the well-posedness problem
of the Navier-Stokes equations. A notable application is that any initial
data in L2 whose Fourier transform is supported in the half-space produce
s a unique global mild solution.\n

PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nFrame theory has become a tremendously active
research field\, with connection to many mathematical disciplines but als
o applications. In short\, frames are a sequence of elements that allow st
able representation of elements in a Hilbert space. One generalization of
the original definition considers not a sequence indexed by a discrete set
\, but a function indexed by a continuous set. This will be the topic of t
his talk\, in particular\, how closely this concept is intertwined with re
producing kernel Hilbert spaces (RKHS). We start with a short motivation w
hy frame theory is important\, also for applications. We introduce the bas
ic definitions. We show recent developments which focus on the various fac
ets of the interplay of continuous frames and RKHS. In particular\, we ana
lyze the structure of the reproducing kernel of a RKHS using frames and re
producing pairs. We show that finite redundancy of a continuous frame impl
ies atomic structure of the underlying measure space. This implies that al
l the attempts to extend the notion of Riesz basis to general measure spac
es are fruitless since every such family can be identified with a discrete
Riesz basis\, by using the RKHS structure of the range of the analysis op
erator. This can also be used to formulate a result that classifies all du
al functions to a given continuous frame. Finally\, we will give general k
ernel theorems for operators acting between coorbit spaces\, which are Ban
ach spaces associated to continous frame representations and contain most
of the usual function spaces (Besov spaces\, modulation spaces\, etc.). Th
is collects work with K. Gröchenig\, M. Speckbacher and N. Teofanov.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Singular Values of Random Subensembles of Frame Vectors\nby Mark Magsino (Ohio State University) as part of CUNY Harmonic Analys
is and PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nFrame theory studies redundant represe
ntations in a Hilbert space. In finite dimensions\, this is simply a spann
ing set but there are many interesting and useful frames in these settings
. One application involves compressed sensing\, which is a method for effi
cient acquisition and reconstruction of signals using underrepresented sys
tems. However\, verifying the key property of compressed sensing frames is
NP-hard which makes constructing them difficult. One way around this is t
o examine random subensembles of these frames and try to control their sin
gular values. We will show that the singular values of random subensembles
of so-called equiangular tight frames are closely linked to the Kesten-Mc
Kay distribution. This is joint work with Dustin Mixon and Hans Parshall.\

DESCRIPTION:Title: Whitney Extension and Lusin Approximation in Carnot Groups
\nby Gareth Speight (University of Cincinnati) as part of CUNY Harmoni
c Analysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nLusin's theorem states that an
y measurable function can be approximated by a continuous function\, excep
t on a set of small measure. Analogous results for higher smoothness give
conditions under which a function may admit a Lusin type approximation by
C^m functions. Such results can often be obtained as a consequence of a su
itable Whitney extension theorem. We review what is known in the Euclidean
setting then describe some recent extensions to Carnot groups\, a family
of non-Euclidean spaces that nevertheless have a rich geometric structure.

DESCRIPTION:Title: Function approximation with one-bit Bernstein and one-bit
neural networks\nby Weilin Li (New York University) as part of CUNY Ha
rmonic Analysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe celebrated universal
approximation theorems for neural networks (NNs) typically state that ever
y sufficiently nice function can be arbitrarily well approximated by a neu
ral network with carefully chosen real parameters. Motivated by recent que
stions regarding NN compression\, we ask whether it is possible to represe
nt any reasonable function with a quantized NN -- a NN whose parameters ar
e only allowed to be selected from a small set of allowable parameters. We
answer this question in the affirmative. Our main theorem shows that any
continuously differentiable multivariate function can be approximated by a
one-bit quadratic NN (a NN with quadratic activation whose nonzero weight
s and biases are only allowed to contain +1 or -1 entries) and the rate of
approximation of our scheme is able to exploit any additional smoothness
of the target function. A key component of our work is a novel approximati
on result by linear combinations of multivariate Bernstein polynomials\, w
ith only +1 and -1 coefficients. Joint work with Sinan Gunturk.\n

-Meyerowitz tiling conditions\nby Itay Londner (Weizmann Institute of
Science) as part of CUNY Harmonic Analysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract
\nIt is well known that if a finite set of integers $A$ tiles the integers
by translations\, then the translation set must be periodic\, so that the
tiling is equivalent to a factorization $A+B=\\Z_M$ of a finite cyclic gr
oup. Coven and Meyerowitz (1998) proved that when the tiling period $M$ ha
s at most two distinct prime factors\, each of the sets $A$ and $B$ can be
replaced by a highly ordered "standard" tiling complement. It is not know
n whether this behaviour persists for all tilings with no restrictions on
the number of prime factors of $M$.\n\nIn joint work with Izabella Laba (U
BC)\, we proved that this is true for all sets tiling the integers with pe
riod $M=(pqr)^2$. In my talk I will discuss this problem and introduce som
e ideas from the proof.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Verifying global stability of fluid flows despite transien
t growth of energy (Special Time)\nby David Goluskin as part of CUNY H
armonic Analysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nVerifying nonlinear stab
ility of a laminar fluid flow against all perturbations is a classic chall
enge in fluid dynamics. All past results rely on monotonic decrease of a p
erturbation energy or a similar quadratic generalized energy. This energy
method cannot show global stability of any flow in which perturbation ener
gy may grow transiently. For the many flows that allow transient energy gr
owth but seem to be globally stable (e.g. pipe flow and other parallel she
ar flows at certain Reynolds numbers) there has been no way to mathematica
lly verify global stability. After explaining why the energy method was th
e only way to verify global stability of fluid flows for over 100 years\,
I will describe a different approach that is broadly applicable but more t
echnical. This approach\, proposed in 2012 by Goulart and Chernyshenko\, u
ses sum-of-squares polynomials to computationally construct non-quadratic
Lyapunov functions that decrease monotonically for all flow perturbations.
I will present a computational implementation of this approach for the ex
ample of 2D plane Couette flow\, where we have verified global stability a
t Reynolds numbers above the energy stability threshold. This energy stabi
lity result for 2D Couette flow had not been improved upon since being fou
nd by Orr in 1907. The results I will present are the first verification o
f global stability - for any fluid flow - that surpasses the energy method
. This is joint work with Federico Fuentes (Universidad Catolica de Chile)

DESCRIPTION:Title: Floquet Hamiltonians - effective gaps and resonant decay\nby Amir Sagiv (Columbia University) as part of CUNY Harmonic Analysis

dic forcing. Can their properties be understood from their first-principle
s continuum PDE models? Experimentally\, graphene is known to transform in
to an insulator under a time-periodic driving. A spectral gap\, however\,
is conjectured to not form. How do we reconcile these two facts? We show t
hat the original Schrodinger equation has an effective gap- a new and phys
ically-relevant relaxation of a spectral gap. Next\, we challenge the prev
ailing notion of Floquet edge modes\; due to resonance\, localized modes i
n periodically-forced media are only metasable. Sufficiently rapid forcing
couples the localized mode to the bulk\, and so energy eventually leaks a
way from the localized edge/defect\, in the spirit of the Fermi Golden Rul

\, first proposed in the 1930s\, have had a long history in computational
chemistry as a practical means to speed up calculations. Stated in a mathe
matical language\, Wannier functions are an orthonormal basis for certain
types of spectral subspaces which are generated by the action of a transla
tion group. In the 1980s however\, it was realized that there is an intima
te connection between Wannier functions and topology. In particular\, Wann
ier functions with fast spatial decay exist if and only if a certain vecto
r bundle is topologically trivial. Materials with non-trivial topology hos
t a number of remarkable properties which are robust to physical imperfect
ions. In this talk\, I will give a brief introduction to topological mater

L). Working on random geometric graphs (a.k.a point clouds) with few "labe
led points"\, our task is to propagate these labels to the rest of the poi
nt cloud. Algorithms that are based on the graph Laplacian often perform p
oorly in such pointwise learning tasks since minimizers develop localized
spikes near labeled data. We introduce a class of graph-based higher order
fractional Sobolev spaces (H^s) and establish their consistency in the la
rge data limit\, along with applications to the SSL problem. A crucial too
l is recent convergence results for the spectrum of the graph Laplacian to
that of the continuum.\nObtaining optimal convergence rates for such spec
tra is an open question in stochastic homogenization. In the rest of the t
alk\, we'll discuss how to get state-of-the-art and optimal rates of conve
rgence for the spectrum\, using tools from stochastic homogenization.\nThe

unction in the unit disc has radial limits a.e. on the unit circle $T$. Th
is talk presents the following new theorem in the converse direction. \n\n
Theorem 1. Let $E$ be a subset on $T$. There exists a bounded analytic fun
ction in the open unit disc which has no radial limits on $E$ but has unre
stricted limits at each point of $T\\backslash E$ if and only if $E$ is an
$F_\\sigma$ set of measure zero.\n\nThe sufficiency part of this theorem
immediately implies a well-known theorem of Lohwater and Piranian the proo
f of which is complicated enough. However\, the proof of Theorem 1 only us
es the Fatou's interpolation theorem\, for which too the author has recent
ly suggested a new simple proof.\n\nIt turns out that for the Blaschke pro
ducts\, a well-known subclass of bounded analytic functions\, Theorem 1 ta
kes the following form. \n\nTheorem 2. Let $E$ be a subset on the unit cir
cle $T$. There exists a Blaschke product which has no radial limits on $E$
but has unrestricted limits at each point of $T\\backslash E$ if and only
if $E$ is a closed set of measure zero. \n\nThe proof of the necessity pa
rt of Theorem 2 is completely elementary\, but it still contains some meth
odological novelty. The proof of the sufficiency uses Theorem 1 as well as
some known results on Blaschke products. (Theorem 2 is a joint result wit

DESCRIPTION:Title: Geometric Scattering on Measure Spaces\nby Michael A.
Perlmutter (University of California\, Los Angeles) as part of CUNY Harmon
ic Analysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nGeometric Deep Learning is an
emerging field of research that aims to extend the success of convolution
al neural networks (CNNs) to data with non-Euclidean geometric structure.
Despite being in its relative infancy\, this field has already found great
success in many applications such as recommender systems\, computer graph
ics\, and traffic navigation. In order to improve our understanding of the
networks used in this new field\, several works have proposed novel versi
ons of the scattering transform\, a wavelet-based model of CNNs for graphs
\, manifolds\, and more general measure spaces. In a similar spirit to the
original Euclidean scattering transform\, these geometric scattering tran
sforms provide a mathematically rigorous framework for understanding the s
tability and invariance of the networks used in geometric deep learning. A
dditionally\, they also have many interesting applications such as drug di
scovery\, solving combinatorial optimization problems\, and predicting pat
ient outcomes from single-cell data. In particular\, motivated by these ap
plications to single-cell data\, I will also discuss recent work proposing
a diffusion maps style algorithm with quantitative convergence guarantees
for implementing the manifold scattering transform from finitely many sam
ples of an unknown manifold.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Weaving Frames Linked with Fractal Convolutions\nby Ge
et Varma (RMIT University) as part of CUNY Harmonic Analysis and PDE's Sem
inar\n\n\nAbstract\nWeaving frames have been introduced to deal with some
problems in signal processing and wireless sensor networks. More recently\
, the notion of fractal operator and fractal convolutions have been linked
with perturbation theory of Schauder bases and frames. However\, the exis
ting literature has established limited connections between the theory of
fractals and frame expansions. In this paper we define Weaving frames gene
rated via fractal operators combined with fractal convolutions. The aim is
to demonstrate how partial fractal convolutions are associated to Riesz b

DESCRIPTION:Title: Coupling physics-deep learning inversion\nby Lu Zhang
(Columbia University) as part of CUNY Harmonic Analysis and PDE's Seminar\
n\n\nAbstract\nIn recent years\, there is an increasing interest in applyi
ng deep learning to geophysical/medical data inversion. However\, direct a
pplication of end-to-end data-driven approaches to inversion have quickly
shown limitations in the practical implementation. Indeed\, due to the lac
k of prior knowledge on the objects of interest\, the trained deep learnin
g neural networks very often have limited generalization. In this talk\, w
e introduce a new methodology of coupling model-based inverse algorithms w
ith deep learning for two typical types of inversion problems. In the firs
t part\, we present an offline-online computational strategy of coupling c
lassical least-squares based computational inversion with modern deep lear
ning based approaches for full waveform inversion to achieve advantages th
at can not be achieved with only one of the components. In the second part
\, we present an integrated data-driven and model-based iterative reconstr
uction framework for joint inversion problems. The proposed method couples
the supplementary data with the partial differential equation model to ma
ke the data-driven modeling process consistent with the model-based recons
truction procedure. We also characterize the impact of learning uncertaint
y on the joint inversion results for one typical inverse problem.`1\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On measure and topological Erdos similarity problems\n
by Chun-Kit Lai (San Francisco State University) as part of CUNY Harmonic
Analysis and PDE's Seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nA pattern is called universal in
another collection of sets\, when every set in the collection contains so
me linear and translated copy of the original pattern. Paul Erdős propose
d a conjecture that no infinite set is universal in the collection of sets
with positive measure.\n\nIn this talk\, we explore an analogous problem
in the topological setting. Instead of sets with positive measure\, we inv
estigate the collection of dense sets and in the collection of generic se
ts (dense G-delta and complement has Lebesgue measure zero). We refer to
such pattern as topologically universal and generically universal respecti
vely. We will show that Cantor sets on $R^d$ are never topologically unive
rsal and Cantor sets with positive Newhouse thickness on $R^1$ are not ge
nerically universal. This gives a positive partial answer to a question by
Svetic concerning the Erdős similarity problem on Cantor sets. Moreover\
, we also obtain a higher dimensional generalization of the generic univer
sality problem.\n\nThis is a joint work with John Gallagher\, who was a Ma
ster student in SFSU\, and Eric Weber from Iowa State University.\n
