DESCRIPTION:Title: On the dynamics of the focusing energy critical NLS with inverse squar
e potential\nby Chongchun Zeng (Georgia Tech) as part of MU-MST joint
analysis seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe consider the focusing energy critical N
LS with inverse square potential in dim 3\, 4\, and 5. We characterize sol
utions on the energy surface of the ground state. We prove that solutions
with kinetic energy less that that of the ground state must scatter to zer
o or belong to the stable/unstable manifolds of the ground state. In the l
atter case they converge to the ground state exponentially in the energy s
pace as $t\\to \\pm \\infty$. (In 3-dim without radial assumption\, this h
olds under the compactness assumption of non-scattering solutions on the e
nergy surface.) When the kinetic energy is greater than that of the ground
state\, we show that radial $H^1$ solutions either blow up in finite time
or again belong to the stable/unstable manifold of the ground state. The
proof relies on the detailed spectral analysis\, local invariant manifold
theory\, and a global virial analysis. This is a joint work with Kai Yang
and Xiaoyi Zhang.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On the rigorous derivation of the wave kinetic equations\nby Zaher
Hani (University of Michigan) as part of MU-MST joint analysis seminar\n\
n\nAbstract\nWave turbulence theory conjectures that the behavior of “ge
neric" solutions of nonlinear dispersive equations is governed (at least o
ver certain long timescales) by the so-called wave kinetic equation (WKE).
This approximation is supposed to hold in the limit when the size L of th
e domain goes to infinity\, and the strength \\alpha of the nonlinearity g
oes to 0. We will discuss some recent progress towards settling this conje
cture\, focusing on a recent joint work with Yu Deng (USC)\, in which we s
how that the answer seems to depend on the “scaling law” with which th
e limit is taken. More precisely\, we identify two favorable scaling laws
for which we justify rigorously this kinetic picture for very large times
that are arbitrarily close to the kinetic time scale (i.e. within $L^\\eps
ilon$ for arbitrarily small $\\epsilon$). These two scaling laws are simil
ar to how the Boltzmann-Grad scaling law is imposed in the derivation of B
oltzmann's equation. We also give counterexamples showing certain divergen
ces for other scaling laws.\n

\nAbstract\nFor self-adjoint pseudodifferential operators of order 0\,\nCo
lin de Verdiere and Saint-Raymond introduced natural dynamical\nconditions
(motivated by the study of internal waves in fluids)\nguaranteeing absolu
te continuity of the spectrum. I will present an\nalter-native approach to
obtaining such results based on Melrose’s\nradial propagation estimates
from scattering theory (joint work with\nS. Dyatlov). I will then explain
how an adaptation of the\nHelffer–Sjoestrand theory of scattering reson
ances shows that in a\ncomplex neighbourhood of the continuous spectrum vi
scosity\neigenvalues have limits as viscosity goes to 0. Here the viscosit
y\neigenvalues are the eigenvalues of the original operator to which an\na
nti-self-adjoint elliptic 2nd order operator is added. This justifies\ncla

DESCRIPTION:Title: Strong instability of Novikov peakons\nby Ming Chen (University of
Pittsburgh) as part of MU-MST joint analysis seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn th
is talk we consider a quasilinear dispersive equation with cubic nonlinear
ities which arises from integrable systems and shallow water modeling. A c
haracteristic feature of this equation is its ability to support solitary
waves with corner singularities\, called peakons. These peakons have been
shown to be orbitally and asymptotically stable in $H^1$. However it is al
so known that the equation loses continuous dependence on data (and hence
is not well-posed in the Hadamard sense) in $H^1$. We are able to find a f
unction space more suitable for the well-posedness theory for the peakons\
, and prove that a single peakon fails to be stable in this finer topology
. Indeed we show that perturbation in this class leads to finite-time blow
-up of the corresponding solutions. This is a joint work with Dmitry Pelin
ovsky.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Proof of modulational instability of Stokes waves in deep water\nb
y Huy Nguyen (Brown University) as part of MU-MST joint analysis seminar\n
\n\nAbstract\nIt is proven that small-amplitude steady periodic water wave
s with infinite depth are unstable with respect to long-wave perturbations
. This modulational instability was first observed more than half a centur
y ago by Benjamin and Feir. It has never been proven rigorously except in
the case of finite depth. We provide a completely different and self-conta
ined approach to prove the spectral modulational instability for water wav
es in both the finite and infinite depth cases. Our linearization retains
the physical variables and is compatible with energy estimates for the non
linear problem.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A nonlinear Brascamp-Lieb inequality\nby Taryn Flock (Macalester

ies play a central role in harmonic analysis. However\, in many cases the
fundamental question "When and how can one achieve equality?" is left unan

rturbed versions of the inequality. The focus of the talk will be a nonli
near generalization of the classical Brascamp–Lieb inequality in a gener
al setting. A first step in this analysis is understanding the regularit
y of the sharp constant in the Brascamp-Lieb inequality. Time permitting\
, I will highlight connections to computer science\, geometry\, and number
theory. (works discussed will include joint work with Jon Bennett\, Neal

helor-regime passive scalar turbulence\nby Jacob Bedrossian (Universit
y of Maryland) as part of MU-MST joint analysis seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn
1959\, Batchelor predicted that passive scalars advected in incompressible
fluids with small diffusivity k should display a $|k|^{−1}$ power spect
rum in a statistically stationary experiment at scales small enough for th
e velocity to be effectively smooth. This prediction has since been tested
extensively in physics. Results obtained with Alex Blumenthal and Sam Pun
shon-Smith provide the first mathematically rigorous proof of this law in
the fixed Reynolds number case under stochastic forcing. We show that the
origin of the Batchelor spectrum is the existence of a uniform\, exponenti
al rate that all passive scalar fields are mixed at (up to a random prefac
tor)\, which we prove using ideas from random dynamical systems such as a
la Furstenberg and two-point geometric ergodicity for quenched correlation

\nAbstract\nThis talk will focus on spectral stability of small-amplitude\

tions. In particular\, it has been shown in the past that periodic travell
ing wave solutions to the full Euler equations describing inviscid\, incom
pressible fluid flow\, exhibit high frequency instabilities. However\, som

ture of these instabilities\, how they arise\, and present a general condi

ring the interval in which there are roots of a polynomial half the degree
of the polynomial describing the dispersion relation. We will illustrate
the method for computing spectral stability by considering solutions to th

DESCRIPTION:Title: A Nonnegative Version of Whitney's Extension Problem\nby Kevin O'
Neill (UC Davis) as part of MU-MST joint analysis seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nW
hitney's Extension Problem asks the following: Given a compact set $E\\sub
set\\mathbb{R}^n$ and a function $f:E\\to\\mathbb{R}$\, how can we tell if
there exists $F\\in C^m(\\mathbb{R}^n)$ such that $F|_E=f$? The classical
Whitney Extension theorem tells us that\, given potential Taylor polynomi
als $P^x$ at each $x\\in E$\, there is such an extension F if and only if
the $P^x$'s are compatible under Taylor's theorem. However\, this leaves o
pen the question of how to tell solely from $f$. A 2006 paper of Charles F
efferman answers this question. We explain some of the concepts of that pa
per\, as well as recent work of the speaker\, joint with Fushuai Jiang and
Garving K. Luli\, which establishes the analogous result when $f\\ge0$ an
d we require $F\\ge0$.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Shock formation for the 3d Euler equations\nby Steve Shkoller (UC
Davis) as part of MU-MST joint analysis seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this ta
lk\, I will discuss the shock formation process for the 3d compressible Eu
ler equations\, in which sounds waves interact with entropy waves to produ
ce vorticity. Smooth solutions form a generic stable shock with explicitl
y computable blowup time\, location\, and direction. Our method establishe
s the asymptotic stability of a generic shock profile in modulated self-si
milar variables\, controlling the interaction of wave families via: (i) po
intwise bounds along Lagrangian trajectories\, (ii) geometric vorticity st
ructure\, and (iii) high-order energy estimates in Sobolev spaces. This i
s joint work with T. Buckmaster and V. Vicol.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Toward soliton resolution in KdV-type equations\nby Svetlana Roud
enko (Florida International University) as part of MU-MST joint analysis s
eminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe questions about soliton resolution\, soliton sta
bility or formation of blow-up in KdV-type equations have been intriguing
the researchers for quite some time. \nIn this talk we will look at a high
er dimensional version of the KdV equation\, called Zakharov-Kuznetsov (ZK
) equation and discuss \nbehavior of solutions in the 2d and 3d models as
those are physically relevant. \nIn particular\, we will examine the behav
ior of solutions close to solitons in different settings. \n Direct nume
rical simulations for the KdV-type equations\, such as ZK\, with generic d
ata show that solutions split into\nsolitons traveling in the positive x-d
irection and radiation dispersing in the negative x-direction (possibly at
a specific angle in dimension 2 and higher). \nIn the L^2-critical and su
percritical cases (for example\, 2d cubic ZK equation)\, some of the solit
ons\, traveling\nto the right\, blow-up in finite time.\n Analytically\,
we prove existence of blow-up solutions in the 2d cubic (critical) ZK equ
ation. \nIn subcritical case\, such as 3d quadratic ZK\, we obtain asympto
tic stability of solitons in finite energy space. \nThe talk is based on j
oint works with Luiz Gustavo Farah\, Justin Holmer\, Christian Klein\, Nik
ola Stoilov\, and Kai Yang.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Stability of some stellar models\nby Zhiwu Lin (Georgia Tech) as
part of MU-MST joint analysis seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nI will discuss some r
esults on stability of non-rotating and rotating stars. First\, we proved
a turning point principle which states that the stability changes at the c
ritical points of the total mass for a family of nonrotating stars paramet
rized by the center density. This is joint with Chongchun Zeng. Then we wi
ll discuss some recent results with Yucong Wang on the stability and insta
bility of rotating stars with general angular velocity profiles.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Traveling wave solutions to the free boundary Navier-Stokes equations
\nby Ian Tice (Carnegie Mellon) as part of MU-MST joint analysis semin
ar\n\n\nAbstract\nConsider a layer of viscous incompressible fluid bounded
below\nby a flat rigid boundary and above by a moving boundary. The flui
d is\nsubject to gravity\, surface tension\, and an external stress that i
s\nstationary when viewed in coordinate system moving at a constant\nveloc
ity parallel to the lower boundary. The latter can model\, for\ninstance\
, a tube blowing air on the fluid while translating across the\nsurface.
In this talk we will detail the construction of traveling wave\nsolutions
to this problem\, which are themselves stationary in the same\ntranslating
coordinate system. While such traveling wave solutions to\nthe Euler equ
ations are well-known\, to the best of our knowledge this is\nthe first co
nstruction of such solutions with viscosity. This is joint\nwork with Gio
vanni Leoni.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Invariant Gibbs measures for the three-dimensional wave equation with
a Hartree nonlinearity\nby Bjoern Bringmann (UCLA) as part of MU-MST
joint analysis seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk\, we discuss the constr
uction and invariance of the Gibbs measure for a threedimensional wave equ
ation with a Hartree-nonlinearity.\nIn the first part of the talk\, we con
struct the Gibbs measure and examine its properties. We discuss the\nmutua
l singularity of the Gibbs measure and the so-called Gaussian free field.
In contrast\, the Gibbs\nmeasure for one or two-dimensional wave equations
is absolutely continuous with respect to the Gaussian\nfree field.\n\n\nI
n the second part of the talk\, we discuss the probabilistic well-posednes
s of the corresponding nonlinear\nwave equation\, which is needed in the p
roof of invariance. At the moment\, this is the only theorem proving\nthe
invariance of any singular Gibbs measure under a dispersive equation.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Enhanced dissipation and global existence for the 2D Kuramoto-Sivash

analysis seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe consider the Kuramoto-Sivashinsky equa
tion (KSE) on the two-dimensional torus in scalar form. We prove global ex
istence for small data in the absence of growing modes. If growing modes a
re present\, we show that global existence for arbitrary data holds for th
e advective KSE\, provided the advecting flow field induces a sufficient s
mall diffusion time for the linearized operator\, for example if the flow
is mixing with large amplitude. If the advecting flow is a shear flow\, t
hen we show global existence still holds by using pseudo-spectral estimate
s.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Dynamics of Periodic Lugiato-Lefever Waves\nby Mat Johnson (Unive
rsity of Kansas) as part of MU-MST joint analysis seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nI
n this talk\, we will consider the liner and nonlinear dynamics of perturb
ations of spectrally stable periodic stationary solutions of the Lugiato-L
efever equation (LLE)\, a damped nonlinear Schrodinger equation with forci
ng that arises in optics. It is known that spectrally stable T-periodic s
olutions are nonlinearly stable to subharmonic perturbations\, i.e. to NT-
periodic perturbations for some integer N\, with exponential decay rates.
However\, both the exponential rates of decay and the allowable size of i
nitial perturbations both tend to zero as $N\\to\\infty$\, and hence such
subharmonic stability results are not uniform in N and are\, in fact\, emp
ty in the limit $N=\\infty$. The primary goal of this talk is to introduc
e a methodology\, in the context of the LLE\, by which a uniform in N stab
ility result for subharmonic perturbations may be achieved (at least at th
e linear level). The obtained uniform decay rates are shown to agree prec
isely with the polynomial decay rates of localized\, i.e. integrable on th
e line\, perturbations of such spectrally stable periodic solutions of LLE
. If time permits\, I will also discuss recent progress towards extending
these results for the LLE to the nonlinear level. This is joint with wit

nd Bjorn de-Rijk (Stuttgart)\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Quasi-periodic water waves\nby Jon Wilkening (UC Berkeley) as par
t of MU-MST joint analysis seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe present a framework t
o compute and study two-dimensional water waves that are quasi-periodic in
space and/or time. This means they can be represented as periodic functio
ns on a higher-dimensional torus by evaluating along irrational directions
. In the spatially quasi-periodic case\, the nonlocal Dirichlet-Neumann op
erator is computed using conformal mapping methods and a quasi-periodic va
riant of the Hilbert transform. In the temporally quasi-periodic case\, we
devise a shooting method to compute standing waves with 3 quasi-periods a
s well as hybrid traveling-standing waves that return to a spatial transla
tion of their initial condition at a later time. Many examples will be giv
en to illustrate the types of behavior that can occur.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Mathematics of magic angles for bilayer graphene\nby Maciej Zwors
ki (UC Berkeley) as part of MU-MST joint analysis seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nM
agic angles are a hot topic in condensed matter physics:\nwhen two sheets
of graphene are twisted by those angles the resulting\nmaterial is superco
nducting. I will present a very simple operator\nwhose spectral propertie
s are thought to determine which angles are magical.\nIt comes from a rece
nt PR Letter by Tarnopolsky--Kruchkov--Vishwanath.\nThe mathematics behind
this is an elementary blend of representation theory\n(of the Heisenberg
group in characteristic three)\, Jacobi theta functions and\nspectral inst
ability of non-self-adjoint operators (involving Hörmander's\nbracket con
dition in a very simple setting). The results will be illustrated by\ncolo
urful numerics which suggest some open problems (joint work\nwith S Becker
\, M Embree and J Wittsten).\n
