On a hyperbolic system arising in liquid crystal modelling
(Journal of Hyperbolic Differential Equations, 201711)We consider a model of liquid crystals, based on a nonlinear hyperbolic system of differential equations, that represents an inviscid version of the model proposed by Qian and Sheng. A new concept of dissipative solution ... 
Spherevalued harmonic maps with surface energy and the K13 problem
(Advances in the Calculus of Variations, 201711)We consider an energy functional motivated by the celebrated K13 problem in the OseenFrank theory of nematic liquid crystals. It is defined for spherevalued functions and appears as the usual Dirichlet energy with an ... 
Global wellposedness and twistwave solutions for the inertial QianSheng model of liquid crystals
(Journal of Differential Equations, 20171002)We consider the inertial QianSheng model of liquid crystals which couples a hyperbolictype equation involving a secondorder material derivative with a forced incompressible NavierStokes system. We study the energy law ... 
Klein's Paradox and the Relativistic $\delta$shell Interaction in $\mathbb{R}^3$
(Analysis & PDE, 201711)Under certain hypothesis of smallness of the regular potential $\mathbf{V}$, we prove that the Dirac operator in $\mathbb{R}^3$ coupled with a suitable rescaling of $\mathbf{V}$, converges in the strong resolvent sense ... 
Asymptotic behaviour for fractional diffusionconvection equations
(201710)We consider a convectiondiffusion model with linear fractional diffusion in the subcritical range. We prove that the large time asymptotic behavior of the solution is given by the unique entropy solution of the convective ... 
Existence of weak solutions for a general porous medium equation with nonlocal pressure
(submitted, 201710)We study the general nonlinear diffusion equation $u_t=\nabla\cdot (u^{m1}\nabla (\Delta)^{s}u)$ that describes a flow through a porous medium which is driven by a nonlocal pressure. We consider constant parameters ... 
Threedimensional coarsening dynamics of a conserved, nematic liquid crystalisotropic fluid mixture
(Journal of NonNewtonian Fluid Mechanics, 201709)We present a numerical investigation of the threedimensional coarsening dynamics of a nematic liquid crystalisotropic fluid mixture using a conserved phase field model. The model is a coupled system for a generalized ... 
SPECTRAL ASYMPTOTICS FOR $\delta$INTERACTIONS ON SHARP CONES
(Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications, 2017)We investigate the spectrum of threedimensional Schr\"odinger operators with $\delta$interactions of constant strength supported on circular cones. As shown in earlier works, such operators have infinitely many eigenvalues ... 
Weighted mixed weaktype inequalities for multilinear operators
(Studia Mathematica, 2017)In this paper we present a theorem that generalizes Sawyer's classic result about mixed weighted inequalities to the multilinear context. Let $\vec{w}=(w_1,...,w_m)$ and $\nu = w_1^\frac{1}{m}...w_m^\frac{1}{m}$, the main ... 
Mixed norm estimates for the Cesàro means associated with DunklHermite expansions
(Transactions of the American Mathematical Society, 2017)Our main goal in this article is to study mixed norm estimates for the Cesàro means associated with DunklHermite expansions on $\mathbb{R}^d$. These expansions arise when one considers the DunklHermite operator ... 
Dispersive effects of weakly compressible and fast rotating inviscid fluids
(Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems  Series A, 201708)We consider a system describing the motion of an isentropic, inviscid, weakly compressible, fast rotating fluid in the whole space $\mathbb{R}^3$, with initial data belonging to $ H^s \left( \mathbb{R}^3 \right), s>5/2 $. ... 
On pointwise and weighted estimates for commutators of CalderónZygmund operators
(Advances in Mathematics, 2017)In recent years, it has been well understood that a CalderónZygmund operator T is pointwise controlled by a finite number of dyadic operators of a very simple structure (called the sparse operators). We obtain a similar ... 
Weak and strong $A_p$$A_\infty$ estimates for square functions and related operators
(Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, 201707)We prove sharp weak and strong type weighted estimates for a class of dyadic operators that includes majorants of both standard singular integrals and square functions. Our main new result is the optimal bound $[w]_{A_p} ... 
The relativistic spherical $\delta$shell interaction in $\mathbb{R}^3$: spectrum and approximation
(Journal of Mathematical Physics, 20170803)This note revolves on the free Dirac operator in $\mathbb{R}^3$ and its $\delta$shell interaction with electrostatic potentials supported on a sphere. On one hand, we characterize the eigenstates of those couplings by ... 
Highly rotating fluids with vertical stratification for periodic data and vanishing vertical viscosity
(Revista Matemática Iberoamericana, 201707)We prove that the threedimensional, periodic primitive equations with zero vertical diffusivity are globally well posed if the Rossby and Froude number are sufficiently small. The initial data is considered to be of zero ... 
Sharp weighted estimates involving one supremum
(Comptes Rendus Mathematique, 201707)In this note, we study the sharp weighted estimate involving one supremum. In particular, we give a positive answer to an open question raised by Lerner and Moen. We also extend the result to rough homogeneous singular ... 
Derivation of limit equation for a singular perturbation of a 3D periodic Boussinesq system
(Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems  Series A, 20170715)We consider a system describing the dynamics of an hydrodynamical, densitydependent flow under the effects of gravitational forces. We prove that if the Froude number is sufficiently small such system is globally well ...
