tps://ucla.zoom.us/j/9264073849.\n\nAbstract\nGiven a set E of dimension s
>1\, Falconer conjectured that its distance set \\Delta(E)=\\{|x-y|: x\, y
\\in E\\} should have positive Lebesgue measure. Orponen\, Shmerkin and Ke
leti-Shmerkin proved the conjecture for tightly spaced sets\, for example\
, AD-regular sets.\n\nIn this talk\, we are going to discuss the opposite
type: well-separated sets. This is joint work with Larry Guth and Noam Sol

P. Painleve\, 1900.\n\n\nAbstract:
\n\nNewton noticed that the gravitational potential of a spherical mass wi
th constant density equals\, outside the ball\, the potential of the poin
t-mass at the center. Rephrasing\, the gravitational potential of the bal
l with constant mass density continues as a harmonic function inside the b
all except for the center. Fairly recently\, it was noted that the latter
statement holds for any polynomial\, or even for entire densities.\n\nIf a
harmonic in a spherical shell function vanishes on one piece of a line th
rough the center piercing the shell\, then it must vanish on the second pi
ece of that line. Yet\, the similar statement fails for tori.\n\nIf we sol
ve the Dirichlet problem in an ellipse with entire data\, the solution wil
l always be an entire harmonic function. Yet\, if we do that in a domain b
ounded by the curve x^4 + y^4 =1\, with the data as simple as x^2+y^2\, th
e solution will have infinitely many singularities outside the curve. \nWh
ere and why do eigenfunctions of the Laplacian in domains bounded by algeb
raic curves start having singularities?\n\nWe shall discuss these and some
other questions under the unified umbrella of analytic continuation of s

d PDE seminar\n\nLecture held in https://ucla.zoom.us/j/9264073849.\n\nAbs
tract\nAn ellipsephic set is a subset of the natural numbers whose element
s have digital restrictions in some fixed prime base. Such sets have a fra
ctal structure and can be viewed as p-adic Cantor sets. The particular ell
ipsephic sets that interest us have certain additive properties - for exam
ple\, the set of integers whose digits are squares forms a key motivating
example\, because there are few representations of an integer as the sum o
f two squares.\n\n\nWe obtain discrete restriction estimates for the momen
t curve over ellipsephic sets—in number theoretic terms\, we bound the n
umber of ellipsephic solutions to a Vinogradov system of equations—using
Wooley’s nested efficient congruencing method. These results generalise
previous work of the speaker\, on the quadratic case of this problem\, to
the moment curve of arbitrary degree.\n

CLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\nLecture held in https://caltech.zoom.us/j/
747242458.\n\nAbstract\nWe all know how to do Fourier Analysis on an inter
val\, on {\\mathbb R}^d\, or other groups. But what if our functions live
on a subset of Euclidean space\, let's say on a regular hexagon in the pla
ne? Can we use our beloved exponentials\, functions of the form e_\\lambda
(x) = \\exp(2\\pi i \\lambda\\cdot x) to analyze the functions defined on
our domain? In other words\, can we select a set of frequencies \\lambda s
uch that the corresponding exponentials form an orthogonal basis for L^2 o
f our domain? It turns out that the existence of such an orthogonal basis
depends heavily on the domain. So the answer is yes\, we can find an ortho
gonal basis of exponentials for the hexagon\, but if we ask the same quest
ion for a disk\, the answer turns out to be no.\n\nFuglede conjectured in
the 1970s that the existence of such an exponential basis is equivalent to
the domain being able to tile space by translations (the hexagon\, that w
e mentioned\, indeed can tile\, while the disk cannot). In this talk we wi
ll track this conjecture and the mathematics created by the attempts to se
ttle it and its variants. We will see some of its rich connections to geom
etry\, number theory and harmonic analysis and some of the spectacular rec
ent successes in our efforts to understand exponential bases. We will emph
asize several problems that are still open.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Roots of polynomials under repeated differentiation: a
nonlocal evolution equation with infinitely many conservation laws (and s
ome universality phenomena)\nby Stefan Steinerberger (U. Washington) a
s part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nSuppose you have a
polynomial of degree $p_n$ whose $n$ real roots are roughly distributed li
ke a Gaussian (or some other nice distribution) and you differentiate $t\\
cdot n$ times where $0< t<1$. What's the distribution of the $(1-t)n$ root
s of that $(t\\cdot n)$-th derivative? How does it depend on $t$? We iden
tify a relatively simple nonlocal evolution equation (the nonlocality is g
iven by a Hilbert transform)\; it has two nice closed-form solutions\, a s
hrinking semicircle and a family of Marchenko-Pastur distributions (this s
ounds like random matrix theory and we make some remarks in that direction
). Moreover\, the underlying evolution satisfies an infinite number of con
servation laws that one can write down explicitly. This suggests a lot of
questions: Sean O'Rourke and I proposed an analogous equation for complex-
valued polynomials. Motivated by some numerical simulations\, Jeremy Hosk
ins and I conjectured that $t=1$\, just before the polynomial disappears\,
the shape of the remaining roots is a semicircle and we prove that for a
class of random polynomials. I promise lots of open problems and pretty p
ictures.\n

which was developed in the context of periodic boundary conditions on a fl
at background\, and which is based on a maximum principle for Fourier coef
ficients. The extension to general manifolds requires several new ideas\,
connected to the less favorable spectral localization properties in our se

LA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk\, I will discuss w
hether all stationary/uniformly-rotating solutions of 2D Euler equation mu
st be radially symmetric\, if the vorticity is compactly supported. For a
stationary solution that is either smooth or of patch type\, we prove that
if the vorticity does not change sign\, it must be radially symmetric up
to a translation. It turns out that the fixed-sign condition is necessary
for radial symmetry result: indeed\, we are able to find non-radial sign c
hanging stationary solution with compact support. We have also obtained so
me sharp criteria on symmetry for uniformly-rotating solutions for 2D Eule
r equation and the SQG equation. The symmetry results are mainly obtained
by calculus of variations and elliptic equation techniques\, and the const
ruction of non-radial solution is obtained from bifurcation theory. Part o

DESCRIPTION:Title: Spectral structure and arithmetic progressions\nby
Thomas Bloom (Cambridge) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAb
stract\nHow much additive structure can we guarantee in sets of integers\,
knowing only their density? The study of which density thresholds are suf
ficient to guarantee the existence of various kinds of additive structures
is an old and fascinating subject with connections to analytic number the
ory\, additive combinatorics\, and harmonic analysis.\n\nIn this talk we w
ill discuss recent progress on perhaps the most well-known of these thresh
olds: how large do we need a set of integers to be to guarantee the existe
nce of a three-term arithmetic progression? In recent joint work with Olof
Sisask we broke through the logarithmic density barrier for this problem\
, establishing in particular that if a set is dense enough such that the s
um of reciprocals diverges\, then it must contain a three-term arithmetic
progression\, establishing the first case of an infamous conjecture of Erd
os.\n\nWe will give an introduction to this problem and sketch some of the
recent ideas that have made this progress possible. We will pay particula
r attention to the ways we exploit 'spectral structure' - understanding co
mbinatorially sets of large Fourier coefficients\, which we hope will have
further applications in number theory and harmonic analysis.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Two results on the interaction energy\nby Yao Yao
(Georgia Tech) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nFor
any nonnegative density $f$ and radially decreasing interaction potential
$W$\, the celebrated Riesz rearrangement inequality shows the interaction
energy $E[f] = \\int f(x)f(y)W(x-y) dxdy$ satisfies $E[f] \\leq E[f^*]$\,
where $f^*$ is the radially decreasing rearrangement of $f$. It is a natu
ral question to look for a quantitative version of this inequality: if its
two sides almost agree\, how close must $f$ be to a translation of $f^*$?
Previously the stability estimate was only known for characteristic funct
ions. I will discuss a recent work with Xukai Yan\, where we found a simpl
e proof of stability estimates for general densities. \n\nI will also disc
uss another work with Matias Delgadino and Xukai Yan\, where we constructe
d an interpolation curve between any two radially decreasing densities wit
h the same mass\, and show that the interaction energy is convex along thi
s interpolation. As an application\, this leads to uniqueness of steady st
ates in aggregation-diffusion equations with any attractive interaction po
tential for diffusion power $m\\geq 2$\, where the threshold is sharp.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Stable big bang formation in general relativity: the c
omplete sub-critical regime\nby Jared Speck (Vanderbilt) as part of UC
LA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nThe celebrated theorems of Hawk
ing and Penrose show that under appropriate assumptions on the matter mode
l\, a large\, open set of initial data for Einstein's equations lead to ge
odesically incomplete solutions. However\, these theorems are "soft" in th
at they do not yield any information\nabout the nature of the incompletene
ss\, leaving open the possibilities that \n\ni) it is tied to the blowup o
f some invariant quantity (such as curvature) or \n\nii) it is due to a mo
re sinister phenomenon\, such as\nincompleteness due to lack of informatio
n for how to uniquely continue the solution (this is roughly\nknown as the
formation of a Cauchy horizon). \n\nDespite the "general ambiguity" in th
e mathematical physics literature\, there are heuristic results\, going ba
ck 50 years\, suggesting that whenever a certain "sub-criticality" conditi
on holds\, the Hawking-Penrose incompleteness is caused by the formation o
f a Big Bang singularity\, that is\, curvature blowup along an entire spac
elike hypersurface. In\nrecent joint work with I. Rodnianski and G. Fourno
davlos\, we have given a rigorous proof of the heuristics. More precisely\
, our results apply to Sobolev-class perturbations - without symmetry - of
generalized Kasner solutions whose exponents satisfy the sub-criticality
condition. Our main\ntheorem shows that - like the generalized Kasner solu
tions - the perturbed solutions develop Big Bang singularities. \n\nIn thi
s talk\, I will provide an overview of our result and explain how it is ti
ed to some of the main themes of investigation by the mathematical general
relativity community\, including the remarkable work of Dafermos-Luk on t
he stability of Kerr Cauchy horizons. I will also discuss the new gauge th

Logunov (Princeton) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract
\nIn the beginning of 19th century Napoleon set a prize for the best mathe
matical explanation of Chladni’s resonance experiments. Nodal geometry s
tudies the zeroes of solutions to elliptic differential equations such as
the visible curves that appear in these physical experiments. We will disc
uss geometrical and analytic properties of zero sets of harmonic functions
and eigenfunctions of the Laplace operator. For harmonic functions on the
plane there is an interesting relation between local length of the zero s
et and the growth of harmonic functions. The larger the zero set is\, the
faster the growth of harmonic function should be and vice versa. Zero sets
of Laplace eigenfunctions on surfaces are unions of smooth curves with eq
uiangular intersections. Topology of the zero set could be quite complicat
ed\, but Yau conjectured that the total length of the zero set is comparab
le to the square root of the eigenvalue for all eigenfunctions. We will st

to study nodal sets.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Sharpening the triangle inequality in Lp spaces\nb
y Paata Ivanisvili (NC State) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n
\nAbstract\nThe classical triangle inequality in Lp estimates the norm of
the sum of two functions in terms of the sums of the norms of these functi
ons. Perhaps one drawback of this estimate is that it does not see how "or
thogonal" these functions are. For example\, if f and g are not identicall
y zero and they have disjoint supports then the triangle inequality is pre
tty strict (say for p>1).\n\nMotivated by the L2 case\, where one has a tr
ivial inequality ||f+g||^2 \\leq ||f||^2 + ||g||^2 + 2 |fg|_1\, one can th
ink about the quantity |fg|_1 as measuring the "overlap" between f and g.
What is the correct analog of this estimate in Lp for p different than 2?\
n\nMy talk will be based on a joint work with Carlen\, Frank and Lieb wher
e we obtain one extension of this estimate in Lp\, thereby proving and imp
roving the suggested possible estimates by Carbery\, and another work with
Mooney where we further refine these estimates. The estimates will be pro
vided for all real p's.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Uncertain signs\nby Emanuel Carneiro (ICTP) as par
t of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe consider a generalize
d version of the sign uncertainty\nprinciple for the Fourier transform\, f
irst proposed by Bourgain\, Clozel and\nKahane in 2010 and revisited by Co
hn and Gonçalves in 2019\, in connection\nto the sphere packing problem.
In our setup\, the signs of a function and\nits Fourier transform resonate
with a generic given function P outside of\na ball. One essentially wants
to know if and how soon this resonance can\nhappen\, when facing a suitab
le competing weighted integral condition. The\noriginal version of the pro
blem corresponds to the case P=1.\nSurprisingly\, even in such a rough set
up\, we are able to identify sharp\nconstants in some cases. This is a joi

of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nhe AdS instability conjec
ture provides an example of weak turbulence appearing in the dynamics of t
he Einstein equations in the presence of a negative cosmological constant.
The conjecture claims the existence of arbitrarily small perturbations to
the initial data of Anti-de Sitter spacetime which\, under evolution by t
he vacuum Einstein equations with reflecting boundary conditions at confo
rmal infinity\, lead to the formation of black holes after sufficiently lo
ng time. \n In this talk\, I will present a rigorous proof of the AdS i
nstability conjecture in the setting of the spherically symmetric Einstei
n-scalar field system. The construction of the unstable initial data will
require carefully designing a family of initial configurations of localize
d matter beams and estimating the exchange of energy taking place between
interacting beams over long periods of time\, as well as estimating the de
coherence rate of those beams. I will also discuss possible paths for exte

n asymptotic expansion of a suitable family of averaging operators (to be
applied on u)\; the operators are parametrized by the radius \\epsilon of
averaging\, and the coefficient in the expansion that multiplies the appro
priate power of \\epsilon should equal Lu\, the "appropriate power" refers
to the order of L\;\n\n(ii) study the related mean value equation by remo

ue equation as the dynamic programming principle of a two-player game inco
rporating deterministic and stochastic components\;\n\n(iv) pass to the li
mit in the radius of averaging \\epsilon\, in order to recover solutions t
o Lu=0 from the values of the game process.\n\nIn my talk\, I will explain
this approach in the contexts of p-Laplacian and the non-local geometric
p-Laplacian. Other applications include: Robin boundary conditions and wei

oth solutions $M_t$ ($t<0$) of MCF that form a one-point singularity at ti
me $t=0$\, after which there exist at least $2k$ forward evolutions $M_t^1
\, \\dots\, M_t^k\, N_t^1\, \\dots\, N_t^k$ ($t>0$) by the flow. The solu
tions $M_t^j$ and $N_t^j$ are topologically distinct. The analogous stat
ement for Ricci Flow also holds\, and I will explain both.\n\nBuilding on
these self similar solutions to MCF\, I will also describe non-self simila
r solutions that have a given cone as their initial data. One conclusion
is that for any $k>1$ there is a smooth self similar solution to MCF that
forms a one point singularity\, and for which the set of possible smooth f
orward evolutions contains a k-dimensional continuum. Another conclusion
is that the set of smooth solutions to MCF whose initial condition is one

DESCRIPTION:Title: Magnetic skyrmions in the conformal limit\nby Cyri
ll Muratov (New Jersey Institute of Technology) as part of UCLA analysis a

magnetic films as local minimizers of a reduced micromagnetic energy appro
priate for quasi two-dimensional materials with perpendicular magnetic ani
sotropy and interfacial Dzyaloshinskii-Moriya interaction. The minimizatio
n is carried out in a suitable class of two-dimensional magnetization conf
igurations that prevents the energy from going to negative infinity\, whil
e not imposing any restrictions on the spatial scale of the configuration.
We first demonstrate existence of minimizers for an explicit range of the
model parameters when the energy is dominated by the exchange energy. We
then investigate the conformal limit\, in which only the exchange energy s
urvives and identify the asymptotic profiles of the skyrmions as degree $1
$ harmonic maps from the plane to the sphere\, together with their radii\,
angles and energies. A byproduct of our analysis is a quantitative rigidi

s in constructing local-in-time dynamics in the support of the measure. Si

instead prove deterministic local well-posedness in some Fourier-Lebesgue
spaces containing the support of the Gibbs measures. New key ingredients
are bilinear and trilinear Strichartz estimates adapted to the Fourier-Leb
esgue setting. Once we construct local-in-time dynamics\, we apply Bourgai
n's invariant measure argument to prove almost sure global well-posedness
of the defocusing gKdV with respect to the Gibbs measure and invariance of
the Gibbs measure under the gauged gKdV dynamics.\n\nThis talk is based o

E seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nWe consider the blow-up dynamics of the self-dual
Chern-Simons-Schrödinger equation (CSS) under equivariance symmetry. (CS
S) is $L^2$-critical\, has the pseudoconformal symmetry\, and admits a sol
iton $Q$ for each equivariance index $m \\geq 0$. An application of the ps
eudoconformal transformation to $Q$ yields an explicit finite-time blow-up
solution $S(t)$ which contracts at the pseudoconformal rate $|t|$. In the
high equivariance case $m \\geq 1$\, the pseudoconformal blow-up for smoo
th finite energy solutions in fact occurs in a codimension one sense\; it
is stable under a codimension one perturbation\, but also exhibits an inst
ability mechanism. In the radial case $m=0$\, however\, $S(t)$ is no longe
r a finite energy blow-up solution. Interestingly enough\, there are smoot
h finite energy blow-up solutions whose blow-up rates differ from the pseu
doconformal rate by a power of logarithm. We will explore these interestin
g blow-up dynamics (with more focus on the latter) via modulation analysis

DESCRIPTION:Title: Counterexamples for high-degree analogues of the Schr
ödinger maximal operator\nby Lillian Pierce (Duke) as part of UCLA an
alysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn 1980 Carleson posed a question on
the minimal regularity of an initial data function that implies pointwise
convergence for the solution of the linear Schrodinger equation. After pr
ogress by many authors\, this was recently resolved (up to the endpoint) b
y Bourgain\, whose counterexample construction for the Schrodinger maximal
operator proved a necessary condition on the regularity\, and Du and Zhan
g\, who proved a sufficient condition. In this talk we describe how Bourga
in's counterexamples can be constructed from first principles. Then we des
cribe a new flexible number-theoretic method for constructing counterexamp
les\, which proves a necessary condition for high-degree analogues of the
Schrodinger maximal operator to be bounded from H^s to\nlocal L^1.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The HRT Conjecture\nby Kasso Okoudjou (Tufts) as p
art of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn 1996\, C.~Heil\, J.
~Ramanatha\, and P.~Topiwala conjectured that the (finite) set $\\mathcal{
G}(g\, \\Lambda)=\\{e^{2\\pi i b_k \\cdot}g(\\cdot - a_k)\\}_{k=1}^N$ is l
inearly independent for any non-zero square integrable function $g$ and
subset $\\Lambda=\\{(a_k\, b_k)\\}_{k=1}^N \\subset \\mathbb{R}^2.$ This p
roblem is now known as the HRT Conjecture\, and is still largely unresolv
ed. \n \n\nIn the first part of the talk\, I will give an overview of the
state of the conjecture. I will then introduce an inductive approach to in
vestigate the conjecture\, by attempting to answer the following question.
Suppose the HRT conjecture is true for a function $g$ and a fixed set of
$N$ points $\\Lambda=\\{(a_k\, b_k)\\}_{k=1}^N \\subset \\mathbb{R}^2.$ Fo
r what other point $(a\, b)\\in \\mathbb{R}^2\\setminus \\Lambda$ will the
HRT remain true for the same function $g$ and the new set of $N+1$ points
$\\Lambda'=\\Lambda \\cup \\{(a\, b)\\}$? I will illustrate this inductiv
e argument on special classes of sets $\\Lambda$ when $N\\leq 4$.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Extrapolation of compactness on weighted spaces\nb
y Tuomas Hytonen (U. Helsinki) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\
n\nAbstract\nThe extrapolation theorem of Rubio de Francia is one of the m
ost powerful tools in the theory of weighted norm inequalities: it allows
one to deduce an inequality (often but not necessarily: the bounded of an
operator) on all weighted L^p spaces with a range of p\, by checking it ju
st for one exponent p (but all relevant weights). My topic is an analogous
method for extrapolation of compactness. In a relatively soft way\, it re
covers several recent results about compactness of operators on weighted s
paces and also gives some new ones. I expect there to be many more applica
tions to discover.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Spectral large deviations for sparse random matrices\nby Kyeongsik Nam (UCLA) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\n
Abstract\nThe large deviation problem for the spectrum of random matrices
has attracted immense interest. It was first studied for GUE and GOE\, whi
ch are exactly solvable\, and subsequently studied for Wigner matrices wit
h general distributions. Once the sparsity is induced (i.e. each entry is
multiplied by the independent Bernoulli distribution\, Ber(p))\, eigenvalu
es can exhibit a drastically different behavior. For a large class of Wign
er matrices\, including Gaussian ensembles and the adjacency matrix of Erd
os-Renyi graphs\, dense behavior ceases to hold near the constant average
degree of sparsity\, p~1/n (up to a poly-logarithmic factor). In this talk
\, I will talk about the spectral large deviation for Gaussian ensembles w
ith a sparsity p=1/n. Joint work with Shirshendu Ganguly.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The mysteries of low-degree Boolean functions\nby
Nathan Keller (Bar Ilan University) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE semin
ar\n\n\nAbstract\nAnalysis of Boolean functions studies functions on the d
iscrete cube {-1\,1}^n\, aiming at understanding what the structure of the
(discrete) Fourier transform tells us about the function. In this talk we
focus on the structure of low-degree functions on the discrete cube\, nam
ely\, on functions whose Fourier coefficients are concentrated on low degr
ees. While such functions look very simple\, we are surprisingly far from
understanding them well\, even in the most basic first-degree case. \nWe s
hall present several results on first-degree Boolean functions\, including
the recent proof of Tomaszewski's conjecture (1986) which asserts that an
y first-degree function (viewed as a random variable) lies within one stan
dard deviation from its expectation with probability at least 1/2. Then we
shall discuss several core open questions\, which boil down to understand
ing\, what does the knowledge that a low-degree function is bounded\, or i
s two-valued\, tell us about its structure.\n\nBased on joint work with Oh

DESCRIPTION:Title: The extremals of the Alexandrov-Fenchel inequality
\nby Ramon van Handel (Princeton) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar
\n\n\nAbstract\nIt is a basic fact of convexity that the volume of convex
bodies is a polynomial\, whose coefficients (mixed volumes) define a large
family of natural geometric parameters. A fundamental result of convex ge
ometry\, the Alexandrov-Fenchel inequality\, states that these coefficient
s are log-concave. This result proves to have striking connections with ot
her areas of mathematics\, such as combinatorics and algebraic geometry.\n
\nThere is a long-standing problem surrounding the Alexandrov-Fenchel ineq
uality that has remained open since the original works of Minkowski (1903)
and Alexandrov (1937): in what cases is equality attained? This question
corresponds to the solution of certain unusual isoperimetric problems\, wh
ose extremal bodies turn out to be numerous and strikingly bizarre. With Y
. Shenfeld\, we recently succeeded to settle this problem completely in th
e setting of convex polytopes\, as well as to develop new tools for the st
udy of general convex bodies. In this talk\, I aim to sketch what the extr
emals look like and to indicate some combinatorial\, analytic\, and geomet
ric issues that arise in their characterization.\n

f a matrix weight between the Doob type\nmaximal operator in the dyadic se

maximal operator (with absolute\nvalues inside). The former is $L^2$ boun

onvex bodies to\nreplace absolute values. (equivalent to the more familiar
\nChrist-Goldberg type definition). We will also discuss the Carleson\nEmb

and observe a different behaviour as well.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Tiling the integers with translates of one tile: the C

Laba (University of British Columbia) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE se
minar\n\n\nAbstract\nIt is well known that if a finite set of integers A t
iles the integers by translations\, then the translation set must be perio
dic\, so that the tiling is equivalent to a factorization A+B=Z_M of a fin
ite cyclic group. Coven and Meyerowitz (1998) proved that when the tiling
period M has 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 n
ot known whether this behaviour persists for all tilings with no restricti
ons on the number of prime factors of M.\n\nIn joint work with Itay Londne
r\, we proved that this is true when M=(pqr)^2 is odd. (We are currently f
inalizing the even case.) In my talk I will discuss this problem and intro
duce the main ingredients in the proof.\n

the Euclidean space is greater than or equal to $3\\pi^2/D^2$. In sever
al joint works with X. Dai\, Z. He\, S. Seto\, L. Wang (in various subse

convex domains in the unit sphere. In sharp contrast\, in recent joint w

r\, we prove that the product of the fundamental gap with the square of th
e diameter can be arbitrarily small for convex domains of any diameter in

DESCRIPTION:Title: Sendov's conjecture for sufficiently high degree polyn
omials\nby Terence Tao (UCLA) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar
\n\n\nAbstract\nIn 1958\, Blagovest Sendov made the following conjecture:
if a polynomial $f$ of degree $n \\geq 2$ has all of its zeroes in the uni
t disk\, and $a$ is one of these zeroes\, then at least one of the critica
l points of $f$ lies within a unit distance of $a$. Despite a large amoun
t of effort by many mathematicians and several partial results (such as th
e verification of the conjecture for degrees $n \\leq 8$)\, the full conje
cture remains unresolved. In this talk we present a new result that estab
lishes the conjecture whenever the degree $n$ is larger than some sufficie
ntly large absolute constant $n_0$. A result of this form was previously
established in 2014 by Degot assuming that the distinguished zero $a$ stay
ed away from the origin and the unit circle. To handle these latter cases
we study the asymptotic limit as $n \\to \\infty$ using techniques from p
otential theory (and in particular the theory of balayage)\, which has con
nections to probability theory (and Brownian motion in particular). Apply
ing unique continuation theorems in the asymptotic limit\, one can control
the asymptotic behavior of both the zeroes and the critical points\, whic
h allows us to resolve the case when $a$ is near the origin via the argume
nt principle\, and when $a$ is near the unit circle by careful use of Tayl
or expansions to gain fine asymptotic control on the polynomial $f$.\n

case where the cost considered is allowed to assume infinite values (that

ost. In this talk we will discuss function classes and transforms induced
by costs\, their associated cost-subgradients and optimal transportation.
We will discuss a new result\, characterizing plans which admit a “poten

permits\, we will also discuss an analogue of the Brenier/McCann theorem\
, which holds whenever two measures are strongly-compatible. All definitio

s for the shape of liquid droplets on rough solid surfaces\, especially Be
rnoulli-type free boundary problems. In these models small scale roughnes
s leads to large scale non-uniqueness\, hysteresis\, and anisotropies. In
technical terms we need to understand laminating/foliating families of pl

DESCRIPTION:Title: Uniform Distribution and Incidence Theory\nby Ayla
Gafni (University of Mississippi) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE semina
r\n\n\nAbstract\nThe Szemeredi-Trotter Incidence Theorem\, a central resul
t in geometric combinatorics\, bounds the number of incidences between n p
oints and m lines in the Euclidean plane. Replacing lines with circles le
ads to the unit distance problem\, which asks how many pairs of points in
a planar set of n points can be at a unit distance. The unit distance pro
blem breaks down in dimensions 4 and higher due to degenerate configuratio
ns that attain the trivial bound. However\, nontrivial results are possib
le under certain structural assumptions about the point set. In this talk
\, we will introduce a quantitative version of uniform distribution and us
e that property to obtain nontrivial bounds on unit distances and point-hy
perplane incidences in higher-dimensional Euclidean space. This is based
on joint work with Alex Iosevich and Emmett Wyman.\n

i (University of Turku) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbst
ract\nA two-dimensional configuration is a coloring of the infinite grid Z
^2 using a finite number of colors. For a finite subset D of Z^2\, the D-p
atterns of a configuration are the patterns of shape D that appear in the
configuration. The number of distinct D-patterns of a configuration is a n
atural measure of its complexity. We consider low-complexity configuration
s where the number of distinct D-patterns is at most |D|\, the size of the
shape. We use algebraic tools to study periodicity of such configurations
[1]. In the case D is a rectangle - or in fact any convex shape - we esta
blish that a uniformly recurrent configuration that has low-complexity wit
h respect to shape D must be periodic [2]. This implies an algorithm to de
termine if a given collection of mn rectangular patterns of size mxn admit
a configuration containing only these patterns. Without the complexity bo
und the question is the well-known undecidable domino problem. We also sho
w\, for an arbitrary shape D\, that a low-complexity configuration must be
periodic if it comes from the well-known Ledrappier subshift\, or from a
wide family of other similar algebraic subshifts [3].\n\nReferences\n[1] J

DESCRIPTION:Title: A structure theorem for Gowers-Host-Kra seminorms for
non-finitely generated countable abelian groups of unbounded torsion\n
by Or Shalom (HUJI) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract
\nFurstenberg's famous proof of Szemeredi's theorem leads to a natural que
stion about the convergence and limit of some multiple ergodic averages. I
n the case of $\\mathbb{Z}$-actions these averages were studied by Host-Kr
a and Ziegler. They show that the limiting behavior of such multiple ergod
ic average is determined on a certain factor that can be given the structu
re of an inverse limit of nilsystems (i.e. rotations on a nilmanifold). Th
is structure result can be generalized to $\\mathbb{Z}^d$ actions (where t
he average is taken over a Folner sequence)\, but the non-finitely generat
ed case is still open. The only progress prior to our work is due to Berge
lson Tao and Ziegler\, who studied actions of the infinite direct sum $\\m
athbb{Z}/p\\mathbb{Z}$. In our work we generalize this further to the case
where the sum is taken over different primes (the most interesting case i
s when the multiset of primes is unbounded). We will explain how this case
is significantly different from the work of Bergelson Tao and Ziegler by
describing a new phenomenon that only happens in these settings. Moreover\
, we will discuss a generalized version of nilsystems that plays a role in
our work and some corollaries. If time allows we will also discuss the gr
oup actions of other abelian groups.\n

up or interval of integers lacking points in some 'arithmetic' configurati
on. One example of such a question is\, "What is the largest subset of {1\
,...\,N} with no nontrivial k-term arithmetic progressions x\,x+y\,...\,x+
(k-1)y?". Gowers initiated the study of higher order Fourier analysis whil
e seeking to answer this question and used it to give the first reasonable
quantitative bounds. In this talk\, I'll discuss what higher order Fourie
r analysis is and why it is relevant to the study of arithmetic progressio

of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations is whether boundedness of th
e velocity in various norms implies regularity of the solution. Critical n
orms are conjectured to be (roughly) the threshold between positive and ne
gative answers to this question. Of particular interest are 3D solutions i
n the critical endpoint space $L_t^\\infty L_x^3$ for which Escauriaza-Ser
egin-Sverak famously proved global regularity. Recently Tao improved upon
this result by proving quantitative bounds on the solution and conditions
on a hypothetical blowup. In this talk we discuss the quantitative approac

DESCRIPTION:Title: Iterated Cauchy--Schwarz arguments and true complexity
\nby Frederick Manners (UCSD) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar
\n\n\nAbstract\nThis talk is about useful facts that can be proved by repe
ated application of the Cauchy--Schwarz inequality. For example\, it is s
tandard that expressions $\\sum_{x\,y} f(x\,y) a(x) b(y)$ are controlled b
y the matrix norm $\\sum_{x\,y\,x'\,y'} f(x\,y) f(x\,y') f(x'\,y) f(x'\,y'
)$\, and an elementary proof is by applying Cauchy--Schwarz twice. Simila
rly in additive combinatorics\, counting three-term arithmetic progression
s (x\,x+y\,x+2y) (i.e.\, averages $\\sum_{x\,y} f_1(x) f_2(x+y) f_3(x+2y)$
) is controlled by the Gowers $U^2$-norm $\\sum_{x\,y\,x'\,y'} f(x+y) f(x+
y') f(x'+y) f(x'+y')$: generalizations of this are the starting point of G
owers' proof of Szemeredi's theorem.\n\nHowever\, seemingly simple general
izations of this statement quickly become subtle. For example\, linear co
nfigurations $(x\, x+z\, x+y\, x+y+z\, x+2y+3z\, 2x+3y+6z)$ are controlled
by the $U^2$-norm (and so by Fourier analysis) but it is not at all strai
ghtforward to prove this just with Cauchy--Schwarz\; whereas controlling $
(x\, x+z\, x+y\, x+y+z\, x+2y+3z\, 13x+12y+9z)$ requires the $U^3$-norm (i
.e.\, quadratic Fourier analysis) and this can be proved just with Cauchy-
-Schwarz. A conjecture of Gowers and Wolf (resolved by the joint efforts
of various authors) gives a condition to determine when a configuration is
controlled by the $U^k$-norm\, but the proofs require deep structure theo
rems and (unlike Cauchy--Schwarz arguments) give very weak bounds.\n\nIn t
his talk\, I will describe how it is (sometimes) possible to find the miss
ing Cauchy--Schwarz arguments by "mining proofs". The equality cases of t
hese Cauchy--Schwarz inequalities correspond (it turns out) to facts about
functional equations. For example\, the 3-term progression case states t
he following: if $f_1\,f_2\,f_3$ are functions such that $f_1(x)+f_2(x+h)+
f_3(x+2h) = 0$ for all $x\,h$\, then each $f_i$ must be affine-linear. Th
is statement is not completely obvious but has a short elementary proof.\n
\nGiven such an elementary proof\, sometimes we can reverse the process to
find an iterated Cauchy--Schwarz proof of the corresponding inequality --
albeit a very long and complicated one that would be hard to discover by
hand\, and requiring a proof of a very specific type. This answers the Go
wers--Wolf question with polynomial bounds\, and hopefully other questions
where the availability of complicated Cauchy--Schwarz arguments is a limi
ting factor.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A decoupling interpretation of an old argument for Vi
nogradov's Mean Value Theorem\nby Zane Li (IU) as part of UCLA analysi

Value Theorem (VMVT)\, the harmonic analysis decoupling proof by Bourgain
\, Demeter\, and Guth from 2015 and the number theoretic efficient congrue
ncing proof by Wooley from 2017. While there has been recent work illustra
ting the relation between these two methods\, VMVT has been open since 193
5. It is then natural to ask: What does old partial progress on VMVT look
like in harmonic analysis language? How similar or different does it look
from current decoupling proofs? We talk about an old argument that shows V
MVT "asymptotically" due to Karatsuba and interpret this in decoupling lan
guage. This is ongoing work in progress with Brian Cook\, Kevin Hughes\, O
livier Robert\, Akshat Mudgal\, and Po-Lam Yung.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A tale of two tails\nby Sung-Jin Oh (UC Berkeley)
as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn this talk\, I
will introduce a general method for understanding the late-time tail for s
olutions to wave equations on asymptotically flat spacetimes with odd spat
ial dimensions. A particular consequence of the method is a re-proof of Pr
ice’s law-type results\, which concern the sharp decay rate of the late-
time tails on stationary spacetimes. Moreover\, the method also applies to
dynamical spacetimes. In this case\, I will explain how the late-time tai
ls are in general different(!) from the stationary case in the presence of
dynamical and/or nonlinear perturbations of the problem. This is joint wo
rk with Jonathan Luk (Stanford).\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Small cap decoupling for the moment curve in R^3\
nby Dominique Maldague (MIT) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\
nAbstract\nI will present the full solution to a small cap decoupling prob
lem for the moment curve in R^3 motivated by a question about exponential
sums. In particular\, we prove Conjecture 2.5 in dimension 3 from the orig
inal small cap decoupling paper (https://arxiv.org/pdf/1908.09166.pdf) of
Demeter\, Guth\, and Wang. Decoupling for the moment curve involves the fo
llowing set-up. Begin with a function $f$ with Fourier transform supported
on a small neighborhood of a curve. Break the curve up into pieces which
are approximately linear blocks. Then we estimate the size of $f$ in terms
of an expression with the Fourier projections onto each of these blocks.
This is possible since the Fourier projections of $f$ onto different block
s cannot both be large for a long time\, which we exploit using a high-low
frequency argument. This is based on in-progress work in collaboration wi
th Larry Guth.\n

This problem was considered by Gowers and improved by Eberhard. It appear
s as number 4 in Green's list of his 100 favorite open problems. In the ta
lk we will completely solve the problem by determining the largest product
free subset of $A_n$. \n\nOur proof combines a representation theoretic a

r global functions. We also make use of a dichotomy between structure and
pseudorandomness of functions over the symmetric group.\nBased on a joint

points) $L^p\\to L^q$ estimates for local maximal operators associated wit
h dilates of two different surfaces on Heisenberg groups. The first is the
``horizontal sphere" of codimension two. The second is the Kor\\'anyi sp
here: a surface of codimension one compatible with the non-isotropic dilat
ion structure on the group but with points of vanishing curvature. We shal
l examine the geometry of these surfaces in light of two different notions
of curvature and compare their effect on the estimates for the correspond
ing maximal operators. The Heisenberg group structure will play a crucial
role in our arguments. However\, the theory of Oscillatory Integral Operat
ors will be central despite the non-Euclidean setting. We shall also discu

endpoints). Partly based on joint work with Joris Roos and Andreas Seeger

elocalization in two-dimensions\nby Jacob Shapiro (Princeton) as part
of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nInteger-valued fields are
restricted to take values in Z and usually their Gibbs factor depends only
on the gradient of the field. When the Gibbs factor is such that the typi
cal value of the gradients is much larger than 1 (the spacing of points in
Z)\, the integer constraint becomes less relevant so the field behaves as
if it were real-valued and “delocalizes”. In 2D\, this delocalization
is associated with the Berezinskii–Kosterlitz–Thouless phase of the d
ual O(2) spin model. I will explain these notions for various models and p
resent recent monotonicity theorems for fluctuations which are important t

ching\nby Jiajie Chen (Caltech) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE semin
ar\n\n\nAbstract\nWhether the 3D incompressible Euler equations can develo
p a finite-time singularity from smooth initial data is an outstanding ope
n problem. The presence of vortex stretching is the primary source of a po
tential finite-time singularity. However\, to construct a singularity\, th
e effect of the advection is one of the obstacles. In this talk\, we will
first show some examples in incompressible fluids about the competition be
tween advection and vortex stretching. Then we will discuss the De Gregori
o (DG) model\, which adds an advection term to the Constantin-Lax-Majda mo
del to model this competition. In an effort to establish singularity forma
tion in incompressible fluids\, we develop a novel approach based on dynam
ic rescaling formulation. Using this approach\, we construct finite time s
ingularities of the DG model on the real line from smooth initial data and
on a circle from C^{\\alpha} initial data with any $0<\\alpha < 1$. On th
e other hand\, for $C^1$ initial data with the same sign and symmetry prop
erties as those of the blowup solution\, we prove that the solution of the
DG model on a circle exists globally.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Existence of effective burning velocity in cellular f
low for curvature G-equation\nby Yifeng Yu (UC Irvine) as part of UCLA
analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nG-equation is a popular level set
model in turbulent combustion\, and\nbecomes an advective mean curvature
type evolution equation when the curvature effect is considered:\n$$\nG_t
+ \\left(1-d\\\, \\Div{\\frac{DG}{|DG|}}\\right)_+|DG|+V(x)\\cdot DG=0.\n$
$\nIn this talk\, I will show the existence of effective burning velocity
under the above curvature G-equation model when $V$ is a two dimensional
cellular flow. Our proof combines PDE methods with a dynamical analysis o
f the Kohn-Serfaty deterministic game characterization of the curvature G-
equation based on the special structure of the cellular flow. This is a jo

DESCRIPTION:Title: Lorentz gases on quasicrystals\nby Agnieszka Zele
rowicz (UC Riverside) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\nLecture
held in Caltech Linde 310.\n\nAbstract\nThe Lorentz gas was originally int
roduced as a model for the movement of electrons in metals.\n\n It consist
s of a massless point particle (electron) moving through Euclidean space b
ouncing off a given set of scatterers $\\mathcal{S}$ (atoms of the metal)
with elastic collisions at the boundaries $\\partial \\mathcal{S}$. If the
set of scatterers is periodic in space\, then the quotient system\, which
is compact\, is known as the Sinai billiard. There is a great body of wor
k devoted to Sinai billiards and in many ways their dynamics is well under
stood.\n\n In contrast\, very little is known about the behavior of the Lo
rentz gases with aperiodic configurations of scatterers which model quasic
rystals and other low-complexity aperiodic sets. This case is the focus of
our joint work with Rodrigo Trevi\\~no. \n\nWe establish some dynamical p
roperties which are common for the periodic and quasiperiodic billiards. W
e also point out some significant differences between the two. The novelty
of our approach is the use of tiling spaces to obtain a compact model of
the aperiodic Lorentz gas on the plane.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: The gradient flow structure of the Landau equation\nby Jeremy Wu (UCLA) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\nLecture
held in UCLA Math 6221.\n\nAbstract\nThe Landau equation is one of the co
rnerstones of kinetic theory. It describes the evolution of a gas of plasm
a particles. Complementing its physical relevance\, the mathematical theor
y of the Landau equation is very deep\, yet incomplete owing to the compet
ing effects of quasilinear diffusion and quadratic growth. Global regulari
ty has eluded researchers because of this competition and a related open q
uestion is global uniqueness of weak solutions. This talk introduces the g
radient flow structure of the Landau equation to set the foundation for an
approach to answering this problem. The construction of the metric which
induces the gradient flow structure builds upon the dynamic formulation of
classical Wasserstein metrics. This is based on joint work with José A.
Carrillo\, Matias G. Delgadino\, and Laurent Desvillettes.\n

r\n\n\nAbstract\nI will present a joint work with Jacek Jendrej (CRNS\, So
rbonne Paris Nord) on equivariant wave maps with values in the two-sphere.
We prove that every finite energy solution resolves\, as time passes\, in
to a superposition of harmonic maps (solitons) and radiation\, settling th
e soliton resolution problem for this equation. It was proved in works of
Côte\, and Jia-Kenig\, that such a decomposition holds along a sequence
of times. We show the resolution holds continuously-in-time via a “no-re
turn” lemma based on the virial identity. The proof combines a modulatio
n analysis of solutions near a multi-soliton configuration with concentrat
ion compactness techniques. As a byproduct of our analysis we prove that t
here are no pure multi-solitons in equivariance class k=1 and no elastic c
ollisions between pure multi-solitons in the higher equivariance classes.\

DESCRIPTION:Title: Random matrices and heat flow on polynomials\nby
Brian Hall (Notre Dame) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbst
ract\nSeveral recent results have demonstrated a “model deformation phen
omenon” in random matrix theory\, in which the limiting eigenvalue distr
ibutions of two different random matrix models are\, in certain cases\, re
lated by push-forward under an explicit\, canonical map of the plane to it
self. The prototype example is the case of the circular and semicircular l
aws\, which are related by push-forward under the map z —> 2Re(z). There
are by now several broad families of examples extending this simple case.
\n\nI will discuss a conjecture\, developed with Ching Wei Ho\, that prov
ides a finite-N version of the model deformation phenomenon\, at the level
of characteristic polynomials. Specifically\, the conjecture says that ap
plying the heat operator to the characteristic polynomial of one random ma
trix gives a polynomial whose bulk distribution of zeros resembles that of
a different random matrix. As an example\, consider applying the heat ope
rator for time 1/N to the characteristic polynomial of an NxN GUE matrix.
We believe that the zeros of the resulting polynomial will be almost surel
y asymptotically uniform over the unit disk. Thus\, the heat operator can
turn the semicircular law into the circular law. I will explain the conjec
ture and describe some rigorous results in this direction.\n

ature tensor is a symmetric (0\,2)-tensor field which describes how close
the underlying geometry is to being hyperbolic. The cross curvature was in
troduced by Chow and Hamilton in 2004\; they hoped that the corresponding
cross curvature flow could be used to continuously deform an arbitrary Rie
mannian metric of negative sectional curvature into one of constant negati
ve sectional curvature. In this talk\, I will discuss the 'prescribed cros
s curvature equation'\, which is the underlying inhomogeneous steady-state
version of the cross curvature flow. About this problem\, Hamilton conjec
tured that any positive symmetric tensor on the three-sphere was the cross
curvature of exactly one Riemannian metric. I will discuss some recent re
sults which support the existence component of this conjecture\, and refut
e the uniqueness component. Joint work with Artem Pulemotov.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Wave patterns generated by large-amplitude rogue wave
s and their universal character\nby Deniz Bilman (University of Cincin
nati) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE 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 Robert Bu
ckingham) of the nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation exhibit the same un
iversal asymptotic behavior in the limit of large order in a shrinking reg
ion near their peak amplitude point\, despite the quite different boundary
conditions these solutions satisfy at infinity. This behavior is describe
d by a special solution of again the NLS equation that also satisfies ordi
nary differential equations from the Painlev\\’e-III hierarchy. We revie
w these results and show that this profile also arises universally from ar
bitrary background fields. We then show how rogue waves and solitons of ar
bitrary orders can be placed within a common analytical framework in which
the "order" becomes a continuous parameter\, allowing one to tune continu
ously between types of solutions satisfying different boundary conditions.
In this framework\, 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\, i
n the unbounded complementary region one sees qualitatively different asym
ptotic behavior along different sequences. This is joint work with Peter M
iller (U. Michigan).\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Nonlocal particle approximations of the porous medium
equation and applications to sampling and two-layer neural networks\n
by Katy Craig (UC Santa Barbara) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\
n\n\nAbstract\nGiven a desired target distribution and an initial guess of
its samples\, what is the best way to evolve the locations of the samples
so that they accurately represent the desired distribution? A classical s
olution to this problem is to evolve the samples according to Langevin dyn
amics\, a stochastic particle method for the Fokker-Planck equation. In to
day’s talk\, I will contrast this with a nonlocal\, deterministic partic
le method inspired by the porous medium equation. Using the Wasserstein gr
adient flow structure of the equations and Serfaty’s scheme of Gamma-con
vergence of gradient flows\, I will show that\, as the number of samples i
ncreases and the interaction scale goes to zero\, the interacting particle
system indeed converges to a solution of the porous medium equation. I wi
ll close by discussing practical implications of this result to both sampl
ing and the training dynamics two-layer neural networks. This is based on
joint work with Karthik Elamvazhuthi\, Matt Haberland\, and Olga Turanova.

E seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nConsider a closed surface of genus at least 2 end
owed with a Riemannian metric g\, and let (S\,g) be its universal cover. T
here are two important invariants for (S\,g): the first eigenvalue \\lambd
a of the Laplacian and the volume entropy h\, which measures the exponenti
al growth rate of the volume of geodesic balls. We can normalize g so that
h=1. Then a classical inequality states that \\lambda is at most 1/4. Whe
n g is a hyperbolic metric\, equality holds. We will discuss a stability p
roperty for the hyperbolic plane: if \\lambda is close to the upper bound
1/4\, then (S\,g) is close to the hyperbolic plane in a Benjamini-Schramm
topology.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Heterogeneous gradient flows with applications to col
lective dynamics\nby Jan Peszek (University of Warsaw) as part of UCLA
analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nIn 2001 F. Otto discovered a (now
adays well-known) relationship between the continuity equation and gradien
t flows with respect to the 2-Wasserstein metric. This connection provides
a convenient description of many new and classical models and PDEs includ
ing Keller-Segel and Fokker-Planck as well as models of first-order collec
tive dynamics. \nI am going to present a recent work (joint with David Poy
ato)\, wherein we introduce the so-called fibered 2-Wasserstein metric (wh
ich admits only transportation along fibers controlled by a prescribed pro
babilistic distribution) and explore its applicability in gradient flows.
Based on such a metric\, we develop the notion of heterogeneous gradient f
lows\, and prove that they are equivalent to solutions of parameterized co
ntinuity equations. Lastly\, I will present a collection of applications r
anging from mixtures of fluids\, to multispecies models of collective dyna
mics\, and to (the essential) applications in alignment models.\n

PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nI will talk about joint work with A. Kiselev (D
uke) on patch solutions of the Euler and alpha-SQG equations. It is well-k
nown that the vortex patch of the 2D Euler equation is globally well-posed
in non-endpoint Holder spaces. We prove that the Euler vortex patch is il
l-posed at the C^2 endpoint by showing the existence of a patch with C^2 i
nitial data such that the curvature of the patch boundary becomes infinite
instantaneously. The alpha-SQG equations are a family of active scalar in
terpolating the 2D Euler and SQG equations. In contrast to the Euler case\
, we show that the alpha-SQG patch\, in a suitable regime of regularity\,
is ill-posed in all non-L^2 Sobolev spaces and Holder spaces.\n

ifard (University of California\, Riverside) as part of UCLA analysis and
PDE seminar\n\nLecture held in Linde Hall 310\, Caltech.\n\nAbstract\nThe
long-term dynamics of the equations arising in fluid mechanics is a ubiqui
tous and well-studied subject\, and several methods have been developed. I
n this talk\, we introduce the scaled variable method of Gallay-Wayne. We
expand the method to cover a wider range of equations/models. \n\nThe met
hod is then applied to the quasi-geostrophic equation and the Boussinesq s
ystem\, both subject to fractional dissipation. We also present the stabil
ity of the plane wave equations in higher dimensions. The method produces
sharp time rates\, the leading order terms as well as sharp asymptotics.\n
\nOur work\, joint with Prof. A. Stefanov\, generalizes the classical wor
ks on the Navier-Stokes system. Since the Green's functions in the fractio
nal dissipation context are not sufficiently decaying at infinity\, the c
enter-stable manifold construction of Gallay-Wayne appears to be out of re
ach. Instead\, we rely on appropriate a priori estimates for the solutions
(both in weighted and unweighted settings) to derive the asymptotic profi
les.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: On embedding finitely generated groups of polynomial
growth into Euclidean spaces\nby Seung-Yeon Ryoo (Princeton) as part

nitely generated group of \npolynomial growth embeds bilipschitzly into\nE
uclidean space (or Hilbert space) if and only if it is virtually \nabelian
. Thus\, in the not virtually abelian case\,\nthe Euclidean distortion of
the ball of radius $n$ in the group grows \nto infinity as $n\\to\\infty$.
\nWe may therefore ask: what is the precise asymptotics of the Euclidean \
ndistortion of $n$-balls?\nAnd what role does the dimension of the target
Euclidean space play in \nthe distortion?\nWe compute the (infinite-dimens
ional) Euclidean distortion of \n$n$-balls to be a constant multiple of $\
\sqrt{\\log n}$\,\nby establishing for nilpotent Lie groups the classical
Dorronsoro \ntheorem\, which measures the $L^p$ norm of the fractional Lap
lacian\nof a function in terms of a singular integral measuring the local
\ndeviation of the function from suitable polynomials at all points\nand a
t all scales. We then show that\, in the special case of lattices \nof Car
not groups\, the target dimension essentially does not affect\nthe distort
ion\, by constructing embeddings that simultaneously \noptimize the distor
tion and target dimension.\nThis construction involves a combination of th
e Lovász Local Lemma\, \nthe concentration of measure on the Euclidean sp
here\,\nand a version of the Nash-Moser iteration scheme pioneered by Tao
(2018).\n

stationary solution to the hyperbolic vanishing mean curvature flow\, whic
h is the hyperbolic analog of the (elliptic) minimal hypersurface equation
\, and study its nonlinear stability under no symmetry assumptions. The ma
in result\, which is a recent joint work with Jonas Luhrmann and Sohrab Sh

a perturbations of the n-dimensional catenoid\, the corresponding flow asy
mptotes to an adequate translation and Lorentz boost of the catenoid for n
greater than or equal to 5. Note that the codimension one condition is ne
cessary and sharp in view of the fact that the catenoid is an index 1 mini
mal hypersurface. \n\nAmong the key challenges of the present problem comp
ared to the more classical stability problems for nontrivial stationary so
lutions are: (1) the quasilinearity of the equation\, (2) the slow (polyno
mial) decay of the catenoid at infinity\, and (3) the lack of symmetry ass

DESCRIPTION:Title: The Master Equation in Mean Field Games\nby Mohit
Bansil (UCLA) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nA M
ean Field Game is a differential game (in the sense of game theory) where
instead of a finite number of players we have a continuous distribution of
(infinitely) many players\, however we make the simplifying assumption th
at all players are identical.\n\nIn this talk we consider the existence an
d uniqueness of Nash Equilibrium in Mean Field Games. We show why the stud
y of Nash Equilibrium naturally leads to the study of a Hamilton-Jacobi eq
uation over the space of measures called the master equation\, whose solut
ions give rise to Nash Equilibrium for our game.\n\nFor mean field games t
here isn't a general theory of viscosity solutions analogous to Hamilton-J
acobi equations in finite dimensions. Motivated by this we revisit the cla
s-\nsical solution theory (as opposed to viscosity solutions) of Hamilton
Jacobi equations and identify a symmetry that extends the well-posedness t
heory into new regimes. This\nsymmetry also yields results for the master
equation in mean field games.\n\nWe will see that there are two natural ty
pes of noise that one can impose in a Mean Field Game\, individual noise a
nd common noise\, which correspond to cases where the noise of each player
is independent and identical respectively. Individual noise has a regular
izing effect that is utilized in most well-posedness results for the maste
r equation.\nWe explore well-posedness for the master equation in the case
without individual noise\, under a monotonicity condition.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Ghost effect from Boltzmann theory\nby Lei Wu (Le
high) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\nLecture held in Caltech.
\n\nAbstract\nThe hydrodynamic limit aims to derive fluid equations (such\
nas the Euler and Navier-Stokes equations) from kinetic theory (such as th
e Boltzmann and Landau equations) in a rigorous manner. This is a key ingr
edient for addressing the Hilbert Sixth Problem. As the Knudsen number (w
hich measures mean free path) approaches zero\, almost all standard fluid
equations can be derived through proper scaling. Our work presents an unus
ual hydrodynamic limit that shows genuine kinetic effects\, known as the g
host effect. The density and\ntemperature of order are coupled with the v
elocity of order which acts like a "ghost" that can't be observed at the
fluid level. This suggests that standard fluid mechanics is incomplete in
describing many-particle systems even at the continuum regime. This is joi
nt work with Raffaele Esposito\, Yan Guo and Rossana Marra\, and is mainly
based on preprints https://arxiv.org/abs/2301.09427 and https://arxiv.org

DESCRIPTION:Title: The Stochastic Heat Equation with multiplicative Lév

seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nI will introduce the Stochastic Heat Equation with
multiplicative noise and I will discuss its well-posedness and some of it
s properties. This has been well studied when the noise is Gaussian but it
is only recently that the case of non-Gaussian (Lévy) noise has been con
sidered. \nThis is based on joint work with Carsten Chong (Columbia) and H
ubert Lacoin (IMPA).\nDisclaimer: I come from a probability/statistical me
chanics background\, but I plan on introducing all objects that are not ne

DESCRIPTION:Title: The equidistribution of nilsequences\nby James Le
ng (UCLA) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nConsider
a Nilpotent Lie group $G$ and a discrete subgroup $\\Gamma$ such that the
topological quotient $G/\\Gamma$ is compact. Certain problems in arithmet
ic combinatorics are concerned with an equidistribution theory on $G/\\Gam
ma$. This theory studies the behavior of orbits $g^n\\Gamma$ and classific
ation of their limit sets in $G/\\Gamma$. \n\nIn 2012\, Green and Tao prov
ed a quantitative equidistribution theory on $G/\\Gamma$\, achieving polyn
omial bounds on the rate of equidistribution and with exponent single expo
nential in the dimension of $G$. In this talk\, we go over a recent result
\, which improves the bounds to have exponent polynomial in the dimension
of $G$. We also discuss implications of this result to arithmetic combinat
orics. A key obstruction that the proof of this result overcomes is "induc
tion on dimensions"\, which also seem to appear elsewhere in higher order
Fourier analysis over $\\mathbb{Z}/N\\mathbb{Z}$.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Lagrangian solutions to the Porous Media Equation (an
d friends)\nby Matthew Jacobs (U. Michigan) as part of UCLA analysis a
nd PDE seminar\n\n\nAbstract\nMany works have been devoted to understandin
g and predicting the time evolution of a growing population of cells (bact
erial colonies\, tumors\, etc...). At the macroscopic scale\, cell growth
is typically modeled through Porous Media type equations that describe t
he change in cell density. While these cell growth PDEs have been studied
since the 70s\, our understanding is far from complete\, particularly in t
he case where there are several distinct cell populations.\n\nAn important
open question is whether it is possible for two populations that were sep
arated at initial time to become mixed during the flow. For instance\, can
tumor cells get mixed into healthy cell regions? \n\nIn this talk\, I wi
ll show that it is possible to construct non-mixing solutions to these equ
ations. The key is to construct the Lagrangian flow map along the pressur
e gradient generated by the Porous Media Equation. The main obstruction i
s the fact that the pressure gradient is not sufficiently regular to apply
any generic theory for Lagrangian flows. To overcome this difficulty\, w
e develop a new argument combining features of the Porous Media Equation w
ith the quantitative Lagrangian flow theory of Crippa and De Lellis.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Dynamics of kink clusters for scalar fields in dimens

r classical scalar fields in dimension 1+1 with a symmetric double-well se
lf-interaction potential\, covering\, for example\, the phi-4 model and th
e sine-Gordon equation. Such equations admit non-trivial static solutions
called kinks and antikinks. We define a kink cluster to be a solution appr
oaching\, for large positive times\, a superposition of alternating kinks
and antikinks whose velocities converge to zero and mutual distances grow
to infinity. Our main result is a determination of the leading order asymp
totic behavior of any kink cluster. Our results are partially inspired by
the notion of "parabolic motions" in the Newtonian n-body problem. We expl
ain this analogy and its limitations. We also explain the role of kink clu
sters as universal profiles for the formation/annihilation of multi-kink c
onfigurations.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: A new conjecture to unify Fourier restriction and Boc
hner-Riesz\nby Ruixiang Zhang (UC Berkeley) as part of UCLA analysis a
nd PDE seminar\n\nLecture held in MS 6627.\n\nAbstract\nThe Fourier restri
ction conjecture and the Bochner-Riesz conjecture ask for Lebesgue space m
apping properties of certain oscillatory integral operators. They both are
central in harmonic analysis\, are open in dimensions $\\geq 3$\, and not
ably have the same conjectured exponents. In the 1970s\, H\\"{o}rmander as
ked if a more general class of operators (known as H\\"{o}rmander type ope
rators) all satisfy the same $L^p$-boundedness as in the above two conject
ures. A positive answer to H\\"{o}rmander's question would resolve the abo
ve two conjectures and have more applications such as in the manifold sett
ing. Unfortunately H\\"{o}rmander's question is known to fail in all dimen
sions $\\geq 3$ by the work of Bourgain and many others. It continues to f
ail in all dimensions $\\geq 3$ even if one adds a ``positive curvature''
assumption which one does have in restriction and Bochner-Riesz settings.
Bourgain showed that in dimension $3$ one always has the failure unless a
derivative condition is satisfied everywhere. Joint with Shaoming Guo and
Hong Wang\, we generalize this condition to arbitrary dimension and call i
t ``Bourgain's condition''. We unify Fourier restriction and Bochner-Riesz
by conjecturing that any H\\"{o}rmander type operator satisfying Bourgain
's condition should have the same $L^p$-boundedness as in those two conjec
tures. As evidence\, we prove that the failure of Bourgain's condition imm
ediately implies the failure of such an $L^p$-boundedness in every dimensi
on. We also prove that current techniques on the two conjectures apply equ
ally well in our conjecture and make some progress on our conjecture that
consequently improves the two conjectures in higher dimensions. I will tal
k about some history and some interesting components in our proof.\n

stract\nI will talk about a recent preprint in which we establish an optim

components of this result include: (i) Local well-posedness in the Hadamar
d sense\, i.e.\, local existence\, uniqueness\, and the first proof of con
tinuous dependence on the data\, all in low regularity Sobolev spaces\; (i
i) Enhanced uniqueness: A uniqueness result which holds at the level of th
e Lipschitz norm of the velocity and the $C^{1\,\\frac{1}{2}}$ regularity
of the free surface\; (iii) Stability bounds: We construct a nonlinear fu
nctional which measures\, in a suitable sense\, the distance between two s
olutions (even when defined on different domains) and we show that this di
stance is propagated by the flow\; (iv) Energy estimates: We prove essenti
ally scale invariant energy estimates for solutions\, relying on a newl
y constructed family of refined elliptic estimates\; (v) Continuation crit
erion: We give the first proof of a continuation criterion at the same sca
le as the classical Beale-Kato-Majda criterion for the Euler equation on t
he whole space. Roughly speaking\, we show that solutions can be continued
as long as the velocity is in $L_T^1W^{1\,\\infty}$ and the free surface
is in $L_T^1C^{1\,\\frac{1}{2}}$\; (vi) A novel proof of the construction
of regular solutions. \n \n Our entire approach is in the Eulerian framew

l discuss a small data-global wellposedness result for the three-dimension
al Half-Wave Maps equation in the critical Besov space. The Half-Wave Maps
equation is a nonlocal equation into the sphere\, with a close link to th
e better-known Wave Maps equation. The global wellposedness in dimensions
greater than or equal to 4 is already known\, however the 3 dimensional ca
se presents new difficulties due to the loss of a key Strichartz estimate.
To overcome this we use a simplified version of Tao’s gauge transformat
ion for the wave maps equation\, and a new argument involving commuting ve
ctor fields and Sterbenz’s improved Strichartz estimates for functions w
ith angular regularity. Naturally the use of these estimates comes at a co

DESCRIPTION:Title: Wave envelope estimates in Fourier restriction theory
\nby Dominique Maldague (MIT) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar
\n\nLecture held in MS 6627.\n\nAbstract\nWave packet decomposition allows
us to express functions with restricted frequency support as a superposit
ion of wave packets (simpler functions which are localized in both space a
nd frequency)\, with one "active" wave packet per direction. I will explai
n the significance of a new type of inequality called a wave envelope esti
mate\, which provides detailed information about the possible overlap patt
erns of wave packets that maximize the L^p norm. Wave envelope estimates w
ere first introduced in the work of Guth-Wang-Zhang (GWZ) proving the shar
p L^4 square function estimate for the cone in R^3. Guth-Maldague subseque
ntly introduced a stopping time algorithm based on the amplitude of the fu
nction compared to its square function which yielded a refined version of
the GWZ wave envelope estimates. Our so-called amplitude-dependent wave en
velope estimate simultaneously implies both sharp decoupling and sharp squ
are function estimates. Applications include sharp small cap decoupling es
timates for the cone\, new estimates for the size of exceptional sets in t
he 3D restricted projections problem\, and a sharp multiplier-type problem
for the moment curve.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Convergence rates for the incompressible limit of non
linear diffusion equations\nby Noemi David (Lyon) as part of UCLA anal
ysis and PDE seminar\n\nLecture held in MS 6627.\n\nAbstract\nNowadays a v
ast literature is available on the Hele-Shaw or incompressible limit for n
onlinear degenerate diffusion equations. This problem has attracted a lot
of attention due to its applications to tissue growth and crowd motion mod
elling as it constitutes a way to link soft congestion (or compressible) m
odels to hard congestion (or incompressible) descriptions. Nevertheless\,
little is known about the rate of convergence of this asymptotic. In this
talk\, I will address the question of estimating the rate in the presence
of external drifts. In a joint work with Tomasz Dębiec and Benoit Pertham
e\, we computed the rate in a negative Sobolev norm for generic bounded po
tentials\, while in a work in progress with Alpár Mészáros and Filippo
Santambrogio\, we provide improved results in the 2-Wasserstein distance w
hich are global in time thanks to the contractivity property that holds fo
r strictly convex potentials. I will present these two results\, which hol
d both for the barotropic pressure law (hence the porous medium equation)
and for a singular pressure law with density constraints.\n

.\n\nAbstract\nWe consider the well-posedness of the generalized surface q
uasi-geostrophic (gSQG) front equation. By making use of the null structur
e of the equation\, we carry out a paradifferential normal form analysis i
n order to obtain balanced energy estimates\, which allows us to prove the
local well-posedness of the g-SQG front equation in the non-periodic case
at a low level of regularity (in\nthe SQG case\, this is only one half of
a derivative above scaling).\n\nIn addition\, we establish global well-po
sedness for small and localized rough initial data\, as well as modified s
cattering\, by using the testing by wave packet approach of Ifrim-Tataru.\

onsider a Kantorovich potential associated to an optimal transportation pr
oblem between measures that are not necessarily absolutely continuous with
respect to the Lebesgue measure\, but are comparable to the Lebesgue meas
ure when restricted to balls with radius greater than some $\\delta>0$. Su
ch a framework is very natural in the context of the numerical computation
s of optimal maps\, which often involves approximating "nice" measures by
sums of Dirac masses.\n\nWe will present some recent results (collaboratio

ory of optimal transportation to this framework. In particular\, we establ
ish both Hölder and Sobolev regularity results for Kantorovich potentials
up to some critical length scale depending on $\\delta$.\n

sis and PDE seminar\n\nLecture held in MS 6627.\n\nAbstract\nMagic angles
are a topic of current interest in condensed matter physics and refer to a
remarkable theoretical (Bistritzer--MacDonald\, 2011) and experimental (J
arillo-Herrero et al\, 2018) discovery: two sheets of graphene twisted by
a certain (magic) angle display unusual electronic properties\, such as su
perconductivity. In this talk\, we shall discuss a simple periodic Hamilto
nian describing the chiral limit of twisted bilayer graphene (Tarnopolsky-
Kruchkov-Vishwanath\, 2019)\, whose spectral properties are thought to det
ermine which angles are magical. We show that the corresponding eigenfunct
ions decay exponentially in suitable geometrically determined regions as t
he angle of twisting decreases\, which can be viewed as a form of semiclas
sical analytic hypoellipticity. This is joint work with Maciej Zworski.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Asymptotics of block Toeplitz determinants with piece
wise continuous symbols\nby Jani Virtanen (U. Reading) as part of UCLA
analysis and PDE seminar\n\nLecture held in MS 6627.\n\nAbstract\nA Toepl
itz matrix can be easily defined as a matrix constant along the parallels
to the main diagonal given by the Fourier coefficients of an integrable fu
nction (referred to as the symbol) on the unit circle. The study of the de
terminants of Toeplitz matrices dates back to Szegő\, who described their
asymptotic behavior for sufficiently smooth symbols in 1915 and 1952. The
latter result was generalized to the case of matrix-valued symbols by Wid
om in the 1970s using operator theoretic methods. In the scalar case\, the
asymptotic behavior of Toeplitz determinants with Fisher-Hartwig symbols\
, which allow for zeros\, (integrable) singularities\, discontinuities\, a
nd nonzero winding numbers\, was described completely by Deift\, Its\, and
Krasovsky in 2011 using the Riemann-Hilbert approach. In this talk\, I di
scuss the case of matrix-valued symbols that have finitely many discontinu
ities and some of their applications\, such as the study of entanglement e
ntropy in quantum spin chain models. The approach is largely based on oper
ator theoretic methods\, and it requires a new localization theorem for To
eplitz determinants and a new method of computing the Fredholm index of To
eplitz operators with piecewise continuous matrix-valued symbols. Joint wo
rk with Estelle Basor and Torsten Ehrhardt.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Nearly self-similar blowup of the slightly perturbed
homogeneous Landau equation with very soft potentials\nby Jiajie Chen
(Courant) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\nLecture held in MS 6
627.\n\nAbstract\nWhether the Landau equation can develop a finite time si
ngularity is an important open problem in kinetic equations. In this talk\
, we will first discuss several similarities between the Landau equation a
nd some incompressible fluids equations. Then we will focus on the slightl
y perturbed homogeneous Landau equation with very soft potentials\, where
we increase the nonlinearity from $ c(f) f$ in the Landau equation to $\\a
lpha c(f) f$ with $\\alpha>1$. For $\\alpha > 1 $ and close to $1$\, we es
tablish finite time nearly self-similar blowup from some smooth non-negati
ve initial data\, which can be radially symmetric or non-radially symmetri
c. The blowup results are sharp as the homogeneous Landau equation $(\\alp
ha=1)$ is globally well-posed\, which was recently established by Guillen
and Silvestre. The proof builds on our previous framework on sharp blowup
results of the De Gregorio model with nearly self-similar singularity to o
vercome the diffusion. Our results shed light on potential singularity for
mation in the inhomogeneous setting\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Lattice Covering Densities and Additive Combinatorics
\nby Alexandria Rose (ANU) as part of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\
nLecture held in MS 6627.\n\nAbstract\nThe well-known Lattice Covering Pro
blem asks for the most optimal way to cover the space $\\mathbb{R}^n$\, $n
\\geq 2$\, by using copies of an Euclidean ball centered at points of a g
iven lattice. More precisely\, consider a closed Euclidean ball $B$ and a
lattice $L \\subset \\mathbb{R}^d$\, we say that $L$ is a covering lattice
for $B$ if\n$$ \\mathbb{R}^n = L + B \\tag{1}$$\nThe {\\emph{covering den
sity} $\\displaystyle \\Theta (L)$ of whole space $\\mathbb{R}^n$ is defin
ed as the minimal volume of a closed Euclidean Ball $B$ for which (1) hold
s. Define\n$$\\Theta_n := \\inf \\left \\{ \\Theta (L): L \\text{ is a
lattice in $\\mathbb{R}^n$ of covolume one} \\right \\} $$\nto be the mini
mal density of lattice coverings of $\\mathbb{R}^n$. Where the covolume of
$L$ is the volume of its fundamental parallepipeds (sometimes refer as th
e determinant of $L$). Thus the Lattice Covering Problem asks for the best
upper bound for $\\displaystyle \\Theta_n$.\nSo far\, this problem has on
ly been studied geometrically using Kakeya-type methods to obtain results
for convex bodies in place of balls. In this talk\, we make a connection b
etween lattice covering densities and additive combinatorics\, and conside
r the more general setting of approximate groups and sets with low doublin
g or high additive energy. This is joint work with Francisco Romero Acosta

outstanding question of the theory of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equ

due to Jia and Sverak of a reflection symmetry-breaking phenomenon leading
to non-uniquness. In this talk we propose a new non-uniqueness scenario b
ased on breaking of the (discrete) scaling symmetry\, demonstrated in a sh
ell model of the Navier-Stokes equations first formulated by Obukhov. We c
onstruct data in a critical space that gives rise to distinct Leray soluti

interface between two fluids of distinct densities in a porous medium tha
t sits atop an impermeable layer\, such as oil and water in an aquifer abo
ve bedrock. We develop a local well-posedness theory for this model in th
e stable regime (lighter fluid above the heavier one)\, which includes con
siderably more general fluid interface geometries than even existing whole
plane results and allows the interface to touch the bottom. The latter a
pplies to the important scenario of the heavier fluid invading a region oc
cupied by the lighter fluid along the impermeable layer. We also show tha
t finite time singularities do arise in this setting\, including from arbi
trarily small smooth initial data\, by obtaining maximum principles for th

ps://ucla.zoom.us/j/9264073849\n\nAbstract\nWe put forward two principles
of decoupling\, aiming to provide a new algebraic approach of reducing dec
oupling for new manifolds to decoupling for known manifolds.\n

DESCRIPTION:Title: Sparsity of Fourier mass of passively advected scalar
s in the Batchelor regime\nby Huynh\, Manh Khang (Georgia Tech) as par
t of UCLA analysis and PDE seminar\n\nInteractive livestream: https://ucla
.zoom.us/j/9264073849\nLecture held in MS 6627.\n\nAbstract\nIn this paper
we propose a general dynamical mechanism that can lead to the failure of
the Batchelor's mode-wise power spectrum law in passive scalar turbulence
and hyperbolic dynamics\, while the cumulative law remains true. Of techni
cal interest\, we also employ a novel method of power spectral variance to
establish an exponential radial shell law for the Batchelor power spectru
m. An accessible explanation of the power spectrum laws via harmonic analy
sis is also given.\n
