Stochastic networks in general and stochastic block models in particular attracted a lot of attention in the last decade. The talk considers the Popularity Adjusted Block model (PABM) which generalizes the Stochastic Block model and the Degree Corrected Block Model by allowing more flexibility for block probabilities. We argue that the main appeal of the PABM is its less rigid spectral structure which makes the PABM an attractive choice for modeling networks that appear in biological sciences. Based on a joint work with Majid Noroozi and Ramchandra Rimal.

In this talk I will describe joint work in progress with Andre Henriques to construct functorial chiral conformal field theories from the data of a conformal net. The key idea is the use of "thin cobordisms", which can also be used to connect conformal nets to vertex operator algebras. I will introduce the idea of thin cobordisms and explain how they give a geometric description of a conformal net.

In this talk we will discuss existence and qualitative properties of solutions to a class of Hamiltonian elliptic systems with Neumann boundary conditions ,both in the sublinear and superlinear problems, in the subcritical regime. In balls and annuli we show that least energy solutions (l.e.s.) are not radial functions, but only partially symmetric (namely foliated Schwarz symmetric). A key element in the proof is a new L^t-norm-preserving transformation, which combines a suitable flipping with a decreasing rearrangement. This combination allows us to treat annular domains, sign-changing functions, and Neumann problems, which are non-standard settings to use rearrangements and symmetrizations. Our theorems also apply to the scalar associated model, where our approach provides new results as well as alternative proofs of known facts.
This is a joint work with Alberto Saldaña.

Random plane wave is conjectured to be a universal model for high-energy eigenfunctions of the Laplace operator on generic compact Riemannian manifolds. This is known to be true on average. In the present paper we discuss one of important geometric observable: critical points. We first compute one-point function for the critical point process, in particular we compute the expected number of critical points inside any open set. After that we compute the short-range asymptotic behaviour of the two-point function. This gives an unexpected result that the second factorial moment of the number of critical points in a small disc scales as the fourth power of the radius. Joint work with Dmitry Beliaev and Igor Wigman.

A graph with heterogeneous degrees has most of its nodes making a small number of connections, while the remaining nodes, called hubs, have very high degree. This type of graph is ubiquitously found in models of natural and artificial systems made of interacting components such as, among others, neuronal networks, gene-regulatory networks, and power grids. I will report results addressing the ergodic theoretical properties of uniformly expanding maps coupled on such graphs, focusing the attention on the case where the number of nodes in the graph is very large.
The results justify the emergence of macroscopic behaviour such as coherence of dynamics among hubs with the same number of connections. They also suggest an algorithm to reconstruct the network structure and dynamical features from observations of the dynamics at every node. Tested on computer simulations, the algorithm is able to effectively recover the degree distribution of the network, community structures, local dynamics and effective coupling.

We study a family of hyperplane sections of Grassmannians from the point of view of the GKM-theory. Starting from the Schubert divisor which corresponds to the most singular section and has a natural torus action we provide a uniform description of the equivariant cohomology of the whole family of sections including the smooth one.
This is a joint work in progress with Martina Lanini.

In this talk we deal with the controllability problem for some Sobolev's type equations. We show that the equations cannot be driven to zero if the control support is strictly contained within the domain. Nevertheless, we also prove that it is possible to control the equations asking the control support to move in time in order to cover the whole space domain.
