DESCRIPTION:Title: Spectral properties of spiral quantum waveguides\nby Pave
l Exner (Doppler Institute for Mathematical Physics and Applied Mathematic
s) as part of Spectral theory and related topics\n\n\nAbstract\nWe discuss
properties of a particle confined to a spiral-shaped region with Dirichle
t boundary. As a case study we analyze in detail the Archimedean spiral fo
r which the spectrum above the continuum threshold is absolutely continuou
s away from the thresholds. The subtle difference between the radial and p
erpendicular width implies\, however\, that in contrast to ‘less curved
’ waveguides\, the discrete spectrum is empty in this case. We also disc
uss modifications such a multi-arm Archimedean spirals and spiral waveguid
es with a central cavity\; in the latter case bound state already exist if
the cavity exceeds a critical size. For more general spiral regions the s
pectral nature depends on whether they are ‘expanding’ or ‘shrinking
’. The most interesting situation occurs in the asymptotically Archimede
an case where the existence of bound states depends on the direction from
which the asymptotics is reached.\n

eters\nby Konstantin Pankrashkin (Carl von Ossietzky University of Old

nsider Euclidean Dirac operators with piecewise constant mass potentials a
nd investigate their spectra in several asymptotic regimes in which the ma
ss becomes large in some regions. If the mass jumps along a smooth interfa
ce\, then it appears that the (low-lying) discrete spectrum of such an ope
rator converges to the (low-lying) discrete spectrum of an effective opera
tor acting either on or in the interior of the interface. The effective op
erators admit a simple geometric interpretation in terms of the spin geome
try\, and the results can be extended to a class of spin manifolds as well
. Most questions remain open if the jump interface is non-smooth. Based on
joint works with Brice Flamencourt\, Markus Holzmann\, Andrei Moroianu\,
and Thomas Ourmieres-Bonafos.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A new complex frequency spectrum for the analysis of transmis
sion efficiency in waveguide-like geometries\nby Anne-Sophie Bonnet-Be
n Dhia (Institut Polytechnique de Paris) as part of Spectral theory and re
lated topics\n\n\nAbstract\nWe consider a waveguide\, with one inlet and o
ne outlet\, and some arbitrary perturbation in between. In general\, an in
going wave in the inlet will produce a reflected wave\, due to interaction
with the perturbation. Our objective is to give an answer to the followin
g important questions: what are the frequencies at which the transmission
is the best one? And in particular\, do they exist frequencies for which t
he transmission is perfect\, in the sense that nothing is propagating back
in the inlet?\n\nOur approach relies on a simple idea\, which consists in
using a complex scaling in an original manner: while the same stretching
parameter is classically used in the inlet and the outlet\, here we take
them as two complex conjugated parameters. As a result\, we select ingoing
waves in the inlet and outgoing waves in the outlet\, which is exactly wh
at arises when the transmission is perfect. This simple idea works very we
ll\, and provides useful information on the transmission qualities of the
system\, much faster than any traditional approach. More precisely\, we de
fine a new complex spectrum which contains as real eigenvalues both the fr
equencies where perfect transmission occurs and the frequencies correspond
ing to trapped modes (also known as bound states in the continuum). In add
ition\, we also obtain complex eigenfrequencies which can be exploited to
predict frequency ranges of good transmission. Let us finally mention that
this new spectral problem is PT -symmetric for systems with mirror symmet
ry.\n\nSeveral illustrations performed with finite elements in several si
mple 2D cases will be shown.\n\nIt is a common work with Lucas Chesnel (IN
RIA) and Vincent Pagneux (CNRS).\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Homogenization of the Robin Laplacian in a domain with small
holes: operator estimates\nby Andrii Khrabustovskyi (University of Hra
dec Kralove) as part of Spectral theory and related topics\n\n\nAbstract\n
In the talk we revisit the problem of homogenization of the Robin Laplacia
n in a domain with a lot of tiny holes.\n\nLet $\\varepsilon>0$ be a small
parameter\, $\\Omega$ be an open set in $\\mathbb{R}^n$ with $n\\ge 2$\,
and $\\Omega_\\varepsilon$ be a perforated domain obtained by removing fro
m $\\Omega$ a family of tiny identical balls of the radius $d_\\varepsilon
=o(\\varepsilon)$ $(\\varepsilon\\to 0)$ distributed periodically with a p
eriod \\varepsilon. We denote by $\\Delta_{\\Omega_\\varepsilon\,\\alpha_\
\varepsilon}$ the Laplacian on $\\Omega_\\varepsilon$ subject to the Diric
hlet condition $u=0$ on the external boundary of $\\Omega_\\varepsilon$ an
d the Robin conditions on the boundary of the balls:\n\n \\[{\\partial u\
\over\\partial \\nu}+\\alpha_\\varepsilon u=0\,\\quad \\alpha_\\varepsilon
>0\,\\]\n\nwhere $\\nu$ is an outward-facing unit normal. By $\\Delta_\\Om
ega$ we denote the Dirichlet Laplacian on $\\Omega$. It is known (Kaizu (1
985\, 1989)\, Berlyand & Goncharenko (1990)\, Goncharenko (1997)\, Shaposh
nikova et al. (2018)) that $\\Delta_{\\Omega_\\varepsilon\,\\alpha_\\varep
silon}$ converges in a strong resolvent sense either to zero (solidifying
holes)\, to $\\Delta_\\Omega$ (fading holes) or to the operator $\\Delta_{
\\Omega}-q$ with a constant potential $q>0$ (critical case) as $\\varepsil
on\\to 0$. The form of the limiting operator depends on certain relations
between$ \\varepsilon$\, $d_\\varepsilon$ and $\\alpha_\\varepsilon$.\n\nW
e will discuss our recent improvements of these results. Namely\, for all
three cases we show the norm resolvent convergence of the above operators
and derive estimates in terms of operator norms. As an application we esta
blish the Hausdorff convergence of spectra.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A new look at localization\nby Frédéric Klopp (Institut
de Mathématiques de Jussieu – Paris Rive Gauche) as part of Spectral t
heory and related topics\n\n\nAbstract\nThe talk is devoted to new\, impro
ved bounds for the eigenfunctions of random operators in the localized re
gime. We prove that\, in the localized regime with good probability\, ea
ch eigenfunction is exponentially decaying outside a ball of a certain ra
dius\, which we call the "localization onset length." We count the number
of eigenfunctions having onset length larger than\, say\, $\\ell>0$ and
find it to be smaller than $\\exp(-c\\ell)$ times the total number of eig
enfunctions in the system (for some positive constant $c$). Thus\, most
eigenfunctions localize on finite size balls independent of the system si
ze.\n\nWe apply our techniques to obtain decay estimates for the $k$-part
icles density matrices of eigenstates of $n$ non interacting fermionic qu
antum particles subjected to the random potential $V_\\omega$ in a large
box.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Nodal sets\, quasiconformal mappings and how to apply them to
Landis’ conjecture\nby Alexander Logunov (Princeton University) as
part of Spectral theory and related topics\n\n\nAbstract\nA while ago Nadi
rashvili proposed a beautiful idea how to attack problems on zero sets of
Laplace eigenfunctions using quasiconformal mappings\, aiming to estimate
the length of nodal sets (zero sets of eigenfunctions) on closed two-dimen
sional surfaces. The idea have not yet worked out as it was planned. Howev
er it appears to be useful for Landis' Conjecture. We will explain how to
apply the combination of quasiconformal mappings and zero sets to quantita
tive properties of solutions to $\\Delta u + V u =0$ on the plane\, where
$V$ is a real\, bounded function. The method reduces some questions about
solutions to Shrodinger equation $\\Delta u + V u =0$ on the plane to ques
tions about harmonic functions. Based on a joint work with E.Malinnikova\,
N.Nadirashvili and F. Nazarov.\n\nThis will be a joint session with Saint

re $\\Delta$ is the discrete Laplacian and $V:\\Z^d\\to \\R$ is periodic.
We prove that for any $d\\geq3$\, the Fermi variety at every energy level
is irreducible (modulo periodicity). For $d=2$\, we prove that the Fe
rmi variety at every energy level except for the average of the potential
is irreducible (modulo periodicity) and the Fermi variety at the averag
e of the potential has at most two irreducible components (modulo period
icity). This is sharp since for $d=2$ and a constant potential $V$\, the
Fermi variety at $V$-level has exactly two irreducible components (mod
ulo periodicity). In particular\, we show that the Bloch variety is irr
educible \n(modulo periodicity) for any $d\\geq 2$.\n

nAbstract\nWe develop a comprehensive theory of reflectionless canonical s
ystems with an arbitrary Dirichlet-regular Widom spectrum with the Direct
Cauchy Theorem property. This generalizes\, to an infinite gap setting\, t
he constructions of finite gap quasiperiodic (algebro-geometric) solutions
of stationary integrable hierarchies. Instead of theta functions on a com
pact Riemann surface\, the construction is based on reproducing kernels of
character-automorphic Hardy spaces in Widom domains with respect to Marti
n measure. We also construct unitary character-automorphic Fourier transfo
rms which generalize the Paley-Wiener theorem. Finally\, we find the corre
ct notion of almost periodicity which holds for canonical system parameter
s in Arov gauge\, and we prove generically optimal results for almost peri
odicity for Potapov-de Branges gauge\, and Dirac operators. Based on joint
work with Roman Bessonov and Milivoje Lukic.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Spectra of the Robin-Laplace- and Steklov-problems in bounde
d\, cuspidal domains\nby Jari Taskinen (University of Helsinki) as par
t of Spectral theory and related topics\n\n\nAbstract\nIt is well-known by
works of several authors that the spectrum of the Neumann-Laplace operat
or may be non-discrete even in bounded domains\, if the boundary of the
domain has some irregularities. In the same direction\, in a paper in 2008
with S.A. Nazarov we considered the Steklov spectral problem in a bounded
domain $\\Omega \\subset \\mathbb{R}^n$\, $n \\geq 2$\, with a peak and
showed that the spectrum may be discrete or continuous depending on the s
harpness of the peak. Later\, we proved that the spectrum of the Robin Lap
lacian in non-Lipschitz domains may be quite pathological since\, in addit
ion\nto countably many eigenvalues\, the residual spectrum may cover the
whole complex plain. \n\nWe have recently complemented this study in two
papers\, where we consider the spectral Robin-Laplace- and Steklov-proble
ms in a bounded domain $\\Omega$ with a peak and also in\na family $\\Omeg
a_\\varepsilon$ of domains blunted at the small distance $\\varepsilon >0$
from the peak tip. The blunted domains are Lipschitz and the spectra of t
he corresponding problems on\n$\\Omega_\\varepsilon$ are discrete. We st
udy the behaviour of the discrete spectra as $\\varepsilon \\to 0$ an
d their relations with the spectrum of case with $\\Omega$. In particular
we find various subfamilies of eigenvalues which behave in different way
s (e.g. "blinking" and "stable" families") and we describe a mechanism how
the discrete spectra turn into the continuous one in this process. \n\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Virtual levels and virtual states of Schrodinger operators\nby Andrew Comech (Texas A&M University and IITP RAS) as part of Spectr
al theory and related topics\n\n\nAbstract\nVirtual levels admit several e
quivalent characterizations:\n\n(1) there are corresponding eigenstates fr
om $L^2$ or a space “slightly weaker” than $L^2$\;\n\n(2) there is no
limiting absorption principle in the vicinity of a virtual level (e.g. no
weights such that the “sandwiched” resolvent remains uniformly bounded
)\;\n\n(3) an arbitrarily small perturbation can produce an eigenvalue.\n\
nWe study virtual levels in the context of Schrodinger operators\, with no
nselfadjoint potentials and in all dimensions. In particular\, we derive t
he “missing” limiting absorption principle — the estimates on the re
solvent — near the threshold in two dimensions in the case when the thre
shold is not a virtual level.\n\nThis is a joint work with Nabile Boussaid

DESCRIPTION:Title: The stability of dynamical systems with switches: a geometri
c approach\nby Vladimir Protasov (University of L’Aquila\, Moscow St
ate University) as part of Spectral theory and related topics\n\n\nAbstrac
t\nLinear switching system is a systems of ODE $x'(t) = A(t)x(t)$ with the
matrix $A(t)$ taken from a given control set $U$ independently for each $
t$. In other words\, this is a linear system with a matrix control. The sy
stem is Lyapunov asymptotically stable if its trajectory tends to zero for
every switching low $A(t)$. The stability problem has been studied in gre
at details starting with pioneering works of Molchanov\, Pyatnicky\, Opoit
sev\, etc.\, due to many engineering applications. While in case of consta
nt matrix $A$\, i.e.\, when $U$ is one-element\, the stability problem is
solved by the eigenvalues of $A$\, the systems with switches are much more
complicated. Even for two-element sets $U$\, this problem is in general a
lgorithmically undecidable (Blondel\, Tsitsiclis\, 2000). It can be solved
approximately by the Lyapunov function\, which diverges along every traje
ctory. Among them\, invariant Lyapunov functions (Barabanov norms) are esp
ecially interesting. In 2017 in a joint work with N.Guglielmi we develop a
method of construction of invariant functions. Moreover\, recently it was
proved that for a generic system\, the invariant function is unique and h
as a simple structure: it is either piecewise linear or piecewise quadrati
c. This fact is rather surprising since all specialists believed that the
general Barabanov norm possesses fractal properties and can hardly be foun
d explicitly. To solve the stability problem one needs first to discretize
the system\, and the main issue is to estimate the discretization step (t
he dwell time). We derive that estimate by the sharp constant in the Marko
v-Bernstein inequality for exponential polynomials. We present new results
in this direction and formulate several open problems.\n

rs and applications to the NP operator in 3D elasticity\nby Grigori Ro
zenblum (Chalmers University of Technology\, Sweden\; IEMI\, Sirius Univer
sity\, Russia) as part of Spectral theory and related topics\n\n\nAbstract
\nIt is known that the Neumann-Poincaré operator $K$ in 3D elasticity is
a zero order pseudodifferential operator on a closed surface. For a homoge
neous isotropic body\, it is known that the essential spectrum of $K$ cons
ists of 3 points determined by the Lamé constants $\\lambda$\, $\\mu$ of
the material. Therefore\, the eigenvalues of $K$ can converge only to thes
e three points. We discuss a new method for the study of eigenvalues of su
ch\, polynomially compact\, pseudodifferential operators and\, in particul
ar\, find their asymptotics. The formulas for the asymptotic coefficients
are rather irrational\, however for the two-sided asymptotics of eigenvalu
es these coefficients are shown to be linear combinations of the Euler cha
racteristic and the Willmore energy of the surface with coefficients deter
mined by the Lamé constants. Some results are obtained for the eigenvalue
s of the NP operator for the case when the material of the body is non-hom
ogeneous - when the essential spectrum may consist of intervals.\n
