19/03/19  Seminario  14:30  15:30  1201 Dal Passo  Marcello Lucia  The City University of New York  Some results related to Schiffer problem
Motivated by some earlier work by Schiffer, we consider an
overdetermined semilinear problem in a two dimensional bounded domain
where the Dirichlet data and Neumann boundary conditions are prescribed.
In this talk I will provide some conditions that ensure the domain to
be a disc. This is a joint work with B. Kawohl.

12/03/19  Seminario  14:30  15:30  1201 Dal Passo  Alessandra Lunardi  Universita' di Parma  Sobolev and BV functions in infinite dimension.
In Hilbert or Banach spaces $X$ endowed with a good probability measure $mu$ there are a few "natural"
definitions of Sobolev spaces and of spaces of bounded variation functions. The available theory deals
mainly with Gaussian measures and Sobolev and BV functions defined in the
whole $X$, while the study and Sobolev and BV spaces in domains, and/or with respect to non Gaussian
measures, is largely to be developed.
As in finite dimension, Sobolev and BV functions are tools for the study of different problems, in particular
for PDEs with infinitely many variables, arising in mathematical physics in the modeling of systems with an
infinite number of degrees of freedom, and in stochastic PDEs through Kolmogorov equations.
In this talk I will describe some of the main features and open problems concerning such function spaces. 
11/03/19  Colloquium  14:30  15:30  1201 Dal Passo  Wolfgang SOERGEL  Freiburg University  KazhdanLusztig Theory
The study of continous actions of groups like GL(n;R) and GL(n;C) on Banach spaces leads to interesting algebraic questions.
This field has seen great progress recently, and I want to talk on it.

04/03/19  Seminario  14:30  15:30  1201 Dal Passo  Viola SICONOLFI  Università di Roma  Wonderful models for generalized Dowling lattices
Given a subspace arrangement, De Concini and Procesi in the '90s described the construction of a variety associated to it, namely its wonderful model. An important feature of these model is that some of its geometric aspects are linked to some combinatorical properties of the subspace arrangement, in particular the description of its boundary and its Betti numbers.
During the talk I will consider the subspace arrangement associated to a generalized Dowling lattice, a combinatorial object introduced by Hanlon.
The aim is to study the wonderful model associated to it and to give a description of its boundary. To deal with this I will use a bijection between the set of boundary components of the wonderful model and a family of graphs. This is a joint work with Giovanni Gaiffi.

27/02/19  Colloquium  14:30  15:30  1201 Dal Passo  Alberto ABBONDANDOLO  RuhrUniversität Bochum  Germany  On short closed geodesics, shadows of balls and polar bodies
How long is the shortest closed geodesic on a Riemannian sphere? How large is the shadow of a symplectic ball? How large is the volume of the polar of a centrally symmetric convex body? I will discuss how these seemingly different problems can be addressed within the setting of Reeb dynamics.

26/02/19  Seminario  16:00  17:00  1101 D'Antoni  Samuele Mongodi  Politecnico di Milano  Holomorphicity of sliceregular functions
Abstract: In 2010, Ghiloni and Perotti showed how a sliceregular function
f from a real alternative algebra A to itself is induced, in a suitable
sense, by a holomorphic function F from the complex numbers to the
complexification of A; however, there is no evident "holomorphic" link
between the values of f and the values of F.
I want to show, in the particular case where A is the algebra of
quaternions H, how the set of values of F which induce a zero of f is
actually a complex subspace of the complexification of H and how a number
of properties of sliceregular functions can be therefore deduced from the
classical properties of holomorphic functions.
Moreover, this approach gives an identification of the set of imaginary
units of H with a complex submanifold of a (complex) grassmannian, or, in
other words, how we obtain a natural complex structure on such set which is
compatible with sliceregularity; this point of view is linked to the work
of Gentili, Salamon, Stoppato on the twistorial lift of a sliceregular
function.
If time permits, I'll hint also to the general approach for the case of an
associative algebra. 
26/02/19  Seminario  14:30  15:30  1201 Dal Passo  Claudio Bonanno  Universita' di Pisa  Asymptotic behaviour of chains of interacting particles
One interesting problem in the study of chains of particles with nonlinear interactions is to describe and classify the possible asymptotic behaviours. The possible behaviours obviously depends on the nature of the interactions, but there are similarities in large classes of systems. Considering Hamiltonian systems I will discuss the role played by the existence of a conservation law independent from energy, and introduce a characterization of the asymptotic behaviours based on a notion of complexity. 
25/02/19  Seminario  14:30  15:30  1101 D'Antoni  Ghislain FOURIER  RWTH Aachen  Recent developments on degenerations of flag and Schubert varieties
I'll recall flag varieties and Schubert varieties, and building on that PBW and linear degenerations. This first part is meant to be an introduction for Master and Phdstudents.
I'll proceed with recent results on PBW degenerations of Schubert vareties, explaining triangular and rectangular Weyl group elements. The talk will end with several open questions, discussing the current limit of generalizations.

21/02/19  Seminario  16:00  17:00  1101 D'Antoni  Marco Abate  Universita' di Pisa  Carleson measures and Toeplitz operators on weighted Bergman spaces
Carleson measures were introduced by Carleson in his celebrated solution of the corona
problem; since then they have become an interesting subject of study
on their own, mainly because they can be characterised in many different ways, both analytic
and geometrical. In this talk we shall apply Carleson measures to the study of mapping
properties of Toeplitz operators between weighted Bergman spaces on strongly pseudo convex
domains. More precisely, if $T^eta_mu$ is the Toeplitz operator associated to the measure
$mu$ and having as kernel the Bergman kernel of the weighted Bergman space $A^2_eta$, then
(if $eta$ is large enough) $T^eta_mu$ maps $A^{p_1}_{alpha_1}$
into $A^{p_2}_{alpha_2}$ if and only if $mu$ is a Carleson measure of a suitable exponent.

In this talk we will survey on the state of the art of some relevant conjectures for the birational classification of complex projective varieties with respect to an invariant that has not been completely utilised but seems to be potentially meaningful: the pseudoeffective dimension.
