    Title:
    On the vanishing depth for incompressible free boundary flows

    Abstract:
    In this talk we will present some new results regarding the dynamics of incompressible free boundary flows. We will show a number of results studying the case where the free surface is near the impervious bottom. In particular, we will show that a smooth capillary-gravity water waves cannot touch the bottom while being smooth. The results in this talk are in collaboration with Zhiyuan Geng (BCAM)

    Title:
    Scale invariant regularity estimates for second order elliptic equations with lower order coefficients in optimal spaces

    Abstract:
    We will discuss local and global scale invariant regularity estimates for subsolutions and supersolutions to the equation $-div(A\nabla u+bu)+c\nabla u+du=-div f+g$, assuming that $A$ is elliptic and bounded. In the setting of Lorentz spaces, under the assumptions $b,f\in L^{n,1}$, $d,g\in L^{\frac{n}{2},1}$ and $c\in L^{n,q}$ for $q\leq\infty$, we will see that, with the surprising exception of the reverse Moser estimate, estimates with ``good" constants (that is, depending only on the norms of the coefficients) do not hold in general. On the other hand, assuming a necessary smallness condition on $b,d$ or $c,d$, we will discuss a maximum principle and Moser's estimate for subsolutions with ``good" constants. We will also see that the reverse Moser estimate for nonnegative supersolutions with ``good" constants always holds, under no smallness assumptions when $q<\infty$, leading to the Harnack inequality for nonnegative solutions and local continuity of solutions. Finally, in the setting of Lorentz spaces, we will show that our assumptions are the sharp ones to guarantee these estimates.

    Title:
    Title: An estimate of Sidon constant for complex polynomials with unimodular coefficients

    Abstract:
    In this paper we are concerned with the Bohnenblust--Hille type inequalities for certain polynomials of bounded degree but of very large number of variables. As the polynomials will be defined on groups, one can think about the problem as the estimate of Sidon constants. In most cases the sharp constants are unknown. We estimate the universal constant concerning the Sidon type estimates of degree $d$ polynomials of $n$ variables $z_1, \dots, z_n$ with unimodular coefficients. For polynomials that have constant absolute value of coefficients, this allows us to improve the estimate obtained by Bayart, Pellegrino and Seoane-Sepulveda in their work on the Bohr radius of the n-dimensional polydisc.

    Title:
    Constructing global solutions for energy supercritical PDEs

    Abstract:
    In this talk, we will discuss invariant measures techniques to establish probabilistic global well-posedness for PDEs. We will go over the limitations that the Gibbs measures and the so-called fluctuation-dissipation measures encounter in the context of energy-supercritical PDEs. Then, we will present a new approach combining the two aforementioned methods and apply it to the energy supercritical Schrödinger equations. We will point out other applications as well.

    Title:
    Phase space projections

    Abstract:
    A partition into tiles of the area covered by a convex tree in the Walsh phase plane gives an orthonormal basis for a subspace of L2. There exists a related projection operator, which has been an important tool for dyadic models of the bilinear Hilbert transform. Extending such an approach to the Fourier model is strictly speaking not possible, but satisfactory substitutes can be constructed. This approach was pursued by Muscalu, Tao and Thiele (2002) for proving uniform bounds for multilinear singular integrals with modulation symmetry in dimension one. I discuss a multidimensional variant of the problem. This is based on joint work with Marco Fraccaroli and Christoph Thiele.

    Title:
    Local well-posedness theory of the Novikov-Veselov equation

    Abstract:
    The Novikov-Veselov equation is another generalization of the celebrated KdV equation. It is an interesting object of study in low-regularity well-posedness theory. In this talk, these merits are discussed, and recently published results concerning its local well-posedness both in the periodic and nonperiodic setting are presented. The arguments are mainly based on a symmetrization of the equation and, in the periodic case, a new bilinear estimate derived from number theory. Possible further paths for investigation and open questions are also discussed.

    Title:
    Sharp nonuniqueness for the Navier-Stokes equations

    Abstract:
    Weak solutions of the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations are unique in the so-called Ladyzhenskaya-Prodi-Serrin regime. A scaling analysis suggests that classical uniqueness results are sharp, but previous nonuniqueness constructions of convex integration are far below the critical threshold. In this talk, I will discuss sharp nonuniqueness results on two end-points of the Ladyzhenskaya-Prodi-Serrin regime. Joint work with Alexey Cheskidov.
