Monotonicity and convexity of the ratios of the first kind modified Bessel functions and applications
(Mathematical Inequalities & Applications, 20170718)Let $I_{v}\left( x\right) $ be modified Bessel functions of the first kind. We prove the monotonicity property of the function $x\mapsto I_{u}\left( x\right) I_{v}\left( x\right) /I_{\left( u+v\right) /2}\left( x\right) ... 
HartreeFock theory with a selfgenerated magnetic field
(Journal of Mathematical Physics, 20170601)We prove the existence of a ground state within the HartreeFock theory for atoms and molecules, in the presence of selfgenerated magnetic fields, with and without direct spin coupling. The ground state exists provided ... 
Sharp bounds for the ratio of modified Bessel functions
(Mediterranean Journal of Mathematics, 20170621)Let $I_{\nu }\left( x\right) $ be the modified Bessel functions of the first kind of order $\nu $, and $S_{p,\nu }\left( x\right) =W_{\nu }\left( x\right) ^{2}2pW_{\nu }\left( x\right) x^{2}$ with $W_{\nu }\left( x\right) ... 
Lorentz estimates for asymptotically regular fully nonlinear parabolic equations
(Mathematische Nachrichten, 20170620)We prove a global Lorentz estimate of the Hessian of strong solutions to the CauchyDirichlet problem for a class of fully nonlinear parabolic equations with asymptotically regular nonlinearity over a bounded $C^{1,1}$ ... 
Some remarks on the $L^p$ regularity of second derivatives of solutions to nondivergence elliptic equations and the Dini condition
(Rendiconti Lincei  Matematica e Applicazioni, 20170530)In this note we prove an endpoint regularity result on the $L^P$ integrability of the second derivatives of solutions to nondivergence form uniformly elliptic equations whose second derivatives are a priori only known ... 
Gaussian Decay of Harmonic Oscillators and related models
(Journal of Mathematical Analysis and Applications, 20170515)We prove that the decay of the eigenfunctions of harmonic oscillators, uniform electric or magnetic fields is not stable under 0order complex perturbations, even if bounded, of these Hamiltonians, in the sense that we can ... 
An efficient multigrid strategy for largescale molecular mechanics optimization
(Journal of Computational Physics, 20170801)Static mechanical properties of materials require largescale nonlinear optimization of the molecular mechanics model under various controls. This paper presents an efficient multigrid strategy to solve such problems. This ... 
A quantitative approach to weighted Carleson condition
(Concrete Operators, 20170505)Quantitative versions of weighted estimates obtained by F. Ruiz and J.L. Torrea for the operator \[ \mathcal{M}f(x,t)=\sup_{x\in Q,\,l(Q)\geq t}\frac{1}{Q}\int_{Q}f(x)dx \qquad x\in\mathbb{R}^{n}, \, t \geq0 \] are ... 
Sparse domination theorem for multilinear singular integral operators with $L^{r}$Hörmander condition
(Michigan Mathematical Journal, 20170401)In this note, we show that if $T$ is a multilinear singular integral operator associated with a kernel satisfies the socalled multilinear $L^{r}$Hörmander condition, then $T$ can be dominated by multilinear sparse operators. 
A characterization of two weight norm inequality for LittlewoodPaley $g_{\lambda}^{*}$function
(Journal of Geometric Analysis, 2017)Let $n\ge 2$ and $g_{\lambda}^{*}$ be the wellknown high dimensional LittlewoodPaley function which was defined and studied by E. M. Stein, $$g_{\lambda}^{*}(f)(x)=\bigg(\iint_{\mathbb R^{n+1}_{+}} \Big(\frac{t}{t+xy ... 
Quantitative weighted estimates for rough homogeneous singular integrals
(Israel Journal of Mathematics, 20170311)We consider homogeneous singular kernels, whose angular part is bounded, but need not have any continuity. For the norm of the corresponding singular integral operators on the weighted space $L^2(w)$, we obtain a bound ... 
The Calderón problem with corrupted data
(Inverse Problems, 201701)We consider the inverse Calderón problem consisting of determining the conductivity inside a medium by electrical measurements on its surface. Ideally, these measurements determine the DirichlettoNeumann map and, therefore, ... 
Inverse scattering for a random potential
(201605)In this paper we consider an inverse problem for the $n$dimensional random Schrödinger equation $(\Deltaq+k^2)u = 0$. We study the scattering of plane waves in the presence of a potential $q$ which is assumed to be a ... 
Global Uniqueness for The Calderón Problem with Lipschitz Conductivities
(Forum of Mathematics, Pi, 20160101)We prove uniqueness for the Calderón problem with Lipschitz conductivities in higher dimensions. Combined with the recent work of Haberman, who treated the three and fourdimensional cases, this confirms a conjecture of ... 
Uniqueness properties for discrete equations and Carleman estimates
(Journal of Functional Analysis, 20170325)Using Carleman estimates, we give a lower bound for solutions to the discrete Schrödinger equation in both dynamic and stationary settings that allows us to prove uniqueness results, under some assumptions on the decay of ... 
Singularity formation for the 1D cubic NLS and the Schrödinger map on $\mathbb{S}^2$
(20170202)In this note we consider the 1D cubic Schrödinger equation with data given as small perturbations of a Dirac$\delta$ function and some other related equations. We first recall that although the problem for this type of ... 
Partial regularity and smooth topologypreserving approximations of rough domains
(Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations, 20170101)For a bounded domain $\Omega\subset\mathbb{R}^m, m\geq 2,$ of class $C^0$, the properties are studied of fields of `good directions', that is the directions with respect to which $\partial\Omega$ can be locally represented ... 
Liquid crystal defects in the Landau–de Gennes theory in two dimensions — Beyond the oneconstant approximation
(Mathematical Models and Methods in Applied Sciences, 20161231)We consider the twodimensional Landaude Gennes energy with several elastic constants, subject to general $k$radially symmetric boundary conditions. We show that for generic elastic constants the critical points consistent ... 
Hardy uncertainty principle, convexity and parabolic evolutions
(Communications in Mathematical Physics, 20160901)We give a new proof of the $L^2$ version of Hardy’s uncertainty principle based on calculus and on its dynamical version for the heat equation. The reasonings rely on new logconvexity properties and the derivation of ... 
A strategy for selfadjointness of Dirac operators: Applications to the MIT bag model and deltashell interactions
(20161221)We develop an approach to prove selfadjointness of Dirac operators with boundary or transmission conditions at a $C^2$compact surface without boundary. To do so we are lead to study the layer potential induced by the ...
