DESCRIPTION:Title:
A nonlocal generalisation of Green hyperbolicity\nby Christopher Fewst
er (University of York) as part of Scattering\, microlocal analysis and re
normalisation\n\n\nAbstract\nI describe how Bär's theory of Green hyperbo
lic partial differential operators can be generalized to nonlocal operator
s\, where the nonlocality is confined to a compact spacetime region. Opera
tors of this type arise in some models of the interaction between a field
and a particle detector\, but they can also be used to model fields on non
commutative spacetimes and "soft causality violation".\n\nIt is shown that
the nonlocal Green hyperbolic operators enjoy (suitable generalizations o
f) many of the properties of Green hyperbolic operators\; in particular\,
they can be used as the starting point for a quantum field theory on curve
d spacetimes.\n\nThe talk describes work in progress with Rainer Verch (Le
ipzig).\n

DESCRIPTION:Title:
Geometric wave propagator on Riemannian manifolds\nby Dmitri Vassiliev
(University College London) as part of Scattering\, microlocal analysis a
nd renormalisation\n\n\nAbstract\nWe study the propagator of the wave equa
tion on a closed Riemannian manifold M. We propose a geometric approach to
the construction of the propagator as a single oscillatory integral globa
l both in space and in time with a distinguished complex-valued phase func
tion. This enables us to provide a global invariant definition of the full
symbol of the propagator - a scalar function on the cotangent bundle - an
d an algorithm for the explicit calculation of its homogeneous components.
The central part of the talk is devoted to the detailed analysis of the s
ubprincipal symbol\; in particular\, we derive its explicit small time asy
mptotic expansion. We present a general geometric construction that allows
one to visualise topological obstructions and describe their circumventio
n with the use of a complex-valued phase function. We illustrate the gener
al framework with explicit examples in dimension two.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title:
Global propagator for the massless Dirac operator and spectral asymptotics
\nby Matteo Capoferri (Cardiff University) as part of Scattering\, mic
rolocal analysis and renormalisation\n\n\nAbstract\nWe construct the propa
gator of the massless Dirac operator W on a closed Riemannian 3-manifold a
s the sum of two invariantly defined oscillatory integrals\, global in spa
ce and in time\, with distinguished complex-valued phase functions. The tw
o oscillatory integrals – the positive and the negative propagators –
correspond to positive and negative eigenvalues of W\, respectively. This
enables us to provide a global invariant definition of the full symbols of
the propagators (scalar matrix-functions on the cotangent bundle)\, a clo
sed formula for the principal symbols and an algorithm for the explicit ca
lculation of all their homogeneous components. Furthermore\, we obtain sma
ll time expansions for principal and subprincipal symbols of the propagato
rs in terms of geometric invariants. Lastly\, we use our results to comput
e the third local Weyl coefficients in the asymptotic expansion of the eig
envalue counting functions of W.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title:
The Bisognano–Wichmann property for asymptotically complete massless QFT
\nby Wojciech Dybalski (TU München) as part of Scattering\, microloca
l analysis and renormalisation\n\n\nAbstract\nA novel algebraic criterion
for the Bisognano-Wichmann property of one-particle nets was recently foun
d by V. Morinelli. In this talk I will explain how to apply this criterion
to the case of massless\, integer spin particles using the Mackey subgrou
p theorem. In the next step the result will be lifted from the one-particl
e nets to Haag-Kastler nets using the assumption of asymptotic completenes
s. The argument relies on scattering theory of massless particles due to B
uchholz and its recent simplifications. Also ideas from the massive case\,
which had been solved by J. Mund\, enter into the discussion. The talk is
based on a joint paper with V. Morinelli.\n

The additive structure of the spectra of quantum graphs and discrete measu
res\nby Pavel Kurasov (Stockholm University) as part of Scattering\, m
icrolocal analysis and renormalisation\n\n\nAbstract\nIt is proven that th
e spectrum of the Laplacian on a metric graph $\\Gamma$ contains arithmeti
c sequences if and only if the graph has a loop -- an edge connected to on
e vertex\nby both end points. Moreover the length of the longest possible
arithmetic subsequence\nis estimated using the corresponding discrete grap
h $G$.\n \nOur main tool is diophantine analysis\, specifically ''Lang's $
G_m $ Conjecture'' concerning the intersection of the division group of a
finitely generated subgroup of $(\\mathbb C^*)^N$ with a subvariety of $(
\\mathbb C^*)^N$.\n On our way we prove recent Colin de Verdière's Conjec
ture concerning structure\n of polynomials associated with metric graphs.\
n\n\n \n The trace formula connecting spectra of standard Laplacians on me
tric graphs to the\n sets of periodic orbits allows us to construct a lar
ge family of exotic crystalline measures\, studied recently\n by Y. Meyer.
Crystalline measures are discrete measures with Fourier transform being a
discrete measure as well.\n Our analysis in the first part imply that con
structed measures are\n not just combinations of Poisson summation formula
e.\n\n\n\n\nThis is a joint work with Peter Sarnak.\n

Propagation of singularities on asymptotically AdS spacetimes with general
boundary conditions\nby Alessio Marta (University of Milan) as part o

onsider a Klein-Gordon equation on asymptotically anti-de Sitter spacetime
s subject to a very general class of boundary conditions implemented on th
e conformal boundary by pseudodifferential operators. Using microlocal est
imates\, we prove a propagation of singularities theorem along generalized
broken bicharacteristics and we study the well-posedness of the problem\,
proving existence and uniqueness theorems for a subset of the boundary co
nditions considered that includes interesting cases: In particular among t
his class of boundary conditions\, in addition to Neumann\, Dirichlet and
Robin\, there are dynamical boundary conditions (e.g. of Wentzell kind).\n

Symmetries and locality in perturbative algebraic quantum field theory
\nby Kasia Rejzner (University of York) as part of Scattering\, microlocal
analysis and renormalisation\n\n\nAbstract\nPerturbative algebraic quantu
m field theory (pAQFT) is a rigorous framework for perturbative QFT\, appl
icable also on curved spacetimes\, which makes heavy use of microlocal ana
lysis. The key idea is that through constructing extensions of certain dis
tributions\, one obtains time-ordered products of quantum fields. This bec
omes more complicated when symmetries are involved\, e.g. in QED\, Yang-Mi
lls theories and gravity. In this talk I will explain how the idea of loca
lity and application of homological algebra naturally lead to a constructi
on known as BV formalism.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Localizations of bound states of a renormalized Hamiltonian\nby Fumio
Hiroshima (Kyushu University) as part of Scattering\, microlocal analysis
and renormalisation\n\n\nAbstract\nWe study the ground state of the renor
malized and non-renormalized Nelson model in quantum field theory. Localiz
ations of the ground state are discussed. The ground state can be seen as
a function of the position variable $x$ and the field variable $\\phi$. We
show the spatial exponential decay in $x$ in terms of the Agmon metric an
d Gaussian domination in $\\phi$ for the ground state. The super exponenti
al decay of the number of bosons in the ground state is also shown. To sho
w the localizations we apply the Gibbs measure associated with the ground
state.\n

scuss how we understand a three page note from Quillen's notebook where he
tries to make sense of the technique of "adding counterterms to the Lagra
ngian to remove the infinities" used in renormalized perturbation theory.
Then we explain what the counterterms are in the situation of a quantized
fermion field\, interacting with a\ngauge field treated as an external fie
ld. Our discussion will also be very much inspired by I.M Singer's lecture
on families of Dirac operators with application to physics.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Heat fluctuations in the two-time measurement framework and ultraviolet r
egularity\nby Annalisa Panati (Université de Toulon / CPT Marseille)
as part of Scattering\, microlocal analysis and renormalisation\n\n\nAbstr
act\nIn this talk I will present some recent results about the connection
between heat fluctuation in the two-time measurement framework and ultr
aviolet regularity\, and I will sketch what we expect to happen for (toy)-
models that can be renormalized through self-energy extraction.\n\nTo put
the result in context\, in the first part of the talk I will review the ce
lebrated fluctuation theorem in statistical mechanics and the two-time mea
surement framework. Since Kurchan’s seminal work (2000)\, two-time meas
urement statistics (also known as full counting statistics) has been sho
wn to have an important theoretical role in the context of quantum statist
ical mechanics\, as they allow for an extension of the celebrated fluctuat
ion relation to the quantum setting. \n\nIn the second part of the talk\,
I will present our recent results. We show that the description of heat fl
uctuation differs considerably from its classical counterpart\, in particu
lar a crucial role is played by ultraviolet regularity conditions. On a se
t of canonical examples\, with bounded and unbounded perturbations\, we sh
ow that\n\nour ultraviolet conditions are essentially necessary. If the fo
rm factor of the perturbation does\n\nnot meet our assumptions\, the heat
variation distribution exhibits heavy tails. The tails can be\n\nas heavy
as preventing the existence of a fourth moment of the heat variation. This
phenomenon has no classical analogue.\n\nI will conclude with some conjec
tures for models that can be renormalized through self-energy extraction.\

DESCRIPTION:Title: On Maxwell's equations on globally hyperbolic spacetimes with timelike bo
undary\nby Nicolò Drago (Universität Würzburg) as part of Scatterin
g\, microlocal analysis and renormalisation\n\n\nAbstract\nWe study Maxwel
l's equations as a theory for smooth $k$-forms on globally hyperbolic spac
etimes with a timelike boundary. For that\, we investigate the wave operat
or $\\Box_k$ with appropriate boundary conditions and characterize the spa
ce of solutions of the associated initial and boundary value problem under
reasonable assumptions. Subsequently we focus on the Maxwell operator $\\
delta d$. First we introduce two distinguished boundary conditions\, dubbe
d $\\delta d$-tangential and $\\delta d$-normal boundary conditions. Asso
ciated to these we introduce two different notions of gauge equivalence fo
r the solutions of the Maxwell's operator and we prove that in both cases
\, every equivalence class admits a representative abiding to the Lorentz
gauge. We then construct a unital $*$-algebras $\\mathcal{A}$ of observabl
es for the system described by the Maxwell's operator. Finally we prove th
at\, as in the case of the Maxwell operator on globally hyperbolic spaceti
mes with empty boundary\, $\\mathcal{A}$ possesses a non-trivial center.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Differentiability properties of stochastic flows and semigroup kernels in
nonrelativistic QED\nby Oliver Matte (Aalborg University) as part of
Scattering\, microlocal analysis and renormalisation\n\n\nAbstract\nIn thi
s talk we consider the Pauli-Fierz model for a finite number of nonrelativ
istic electrons in an external electrostatic potential interacting with th
e quantized\, ultraviolet cutoff electromagnetic field. The semigroup gene
rated by the corresponding Hamiltonian has a Fock space operator-valued in
tegral kernel. We study the differentiability properties of this kernel\,
with respect to time and electron positions\, away from the singularities
of the electrostatic potential. We further obtain new decay and regularity
results on possible ground state eigenvectors and more general elements o
f spectral subspaces. The proofs of our results are based on Feynman-Kac f
ormulas and an analysis of the differentiability properties of solutions t
o certain stochastic differential equations associated with the Pauli-Fier
z model. These equations have been introduced by Batu Güneysu\, Jacob Sch
ach Møller and the present author in an earlier work.\n
