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 ... 
Symmetry and Multiplicity of Solutions in a TwoDimensional Landau–de Gennes Model for Liquid Crystals
(Archive for Rational Mechanics and Analysis, 20200520)We consider a variational twodimensional Landau–de Gennes model in the theory of nematic liquid crystals in a disk of radius R. We prove that under a symmetric boundary condition carrying a topological defect of degree ... 
The dynamics of vortex filaments with corners
(Communications on Pure and Applied Analysis (CPAA), 20150701)This paper focuses on surveying some recent results obtained by the author together with V. Banica on the evolution of a vortex filament with one corner according to the socalled binormal flow. The case of a regular polygon ... 
The initial value problem for the binormal flow with rough data
(Annales Scientifiques de l'Ecole Normale Superieure, 20151231)In this article we consider the initial value problem of the binormal flow with initial data given by curves that are regular except at one point where they have a corner. We prove that under suitable conditions on the ... 
The Vortex Filament Equation as a Pseudorandom Generator
(Acta Applicandae Mathematicae, 20150801)In this paper, we consider the evolution of the socalled vortex filament equation (VFE), $$ X_t = X_s \wedge X_{ss},$$ taking a planar regular polygon of M sides as initial datum. We study VFE from a completely novel ... 
Three Observations on Commutators of Singular Integral Operators with BMO Functions
(AWMSpringer Series, Harmonic Analysis, Partial Differentail Equations, Complex Analysis, Banach Spaces, and Operator Theory, 20160701)Three observations on commutators of Singular Integral Operators with BMO functions are exposed, namely 1  The already known subgaussian local decay for the commutator, namely $\[\frac{1}{Q}\left\left\{x\in Q\, : ... 
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 ... 
Topological singular set of vectorvalued maps, I: application to manifoldconstrained Sobolev and BV spaces
(Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations, 20190330)We introduce an operator $\mathbf{S}$ on vectorvalued maps $u$ which has the ability to capture the relevant topological information carried by $u$. In particular, this operator is defined on maps that take values in a ... 
Twoweight mixed norm estimates for a generalized spherical mean Radon transform acting on radial functions
(SIAM Journal on Mathematical Analysis, 2018)We investigate a generalized spherical means operator, viz. generalized spherical mean Radon transform, acting on radial functions. We establish an integral representation of this operator and find precise estimates of ... 
Unique determination of the electric potential in the presence of a fixed magnetic potential in the plane
(201812)For electric and magnetic potentials with compact support, we consider the magnetic Schrödinger equation with fixed positive energy. Under a mild additional regularity hypothesis, and with fixed magnetic potential, we show ... 
Uniqueness and Properties of Distributional Solutions of Nonlocal Equations of Porous Medium Type
