Stochastic spatial models in ecology: a statistical physics approach
(Journal of Statistical Physics, 20171121)Ecosystems display a complex spatial organization. Ecologists have long tried to characterize them by looking at how different measures of biodiversity change across spatial scales. Ecological neutral theory has provided ... 
Fractional kinetics in random/complex media
(Handbook of Fractional Calculus with Applications Volume 5 Applications in Physics, Part B, 2019)In this chapter, we consider a randomlyscaled Gaussian process and discuss a number of applications to model fractional diffusion. Actually, this approach can be understood as a Gaussian diffusion in a medium characterized ... 
Fractional Brownian motion in a finite interval: correlations effect depletion or accretion zones of particles near boundaries
(New Journal of Physics, 201902)Fractional Brownian motion (FBM) is a Gaussian stochastic process with stationary, longtime correlated increments and is frequently used to model anomalous diffusion processes. We study numerically FBM confined to a finite ... 
Surrogatebased uncertainty and sensitivity analysis for bacterial invasion in multispecies biofilm modeling
(Communications Nonlinear Sciences and Numerical Simulation, 2019)In this work, we present a probabilistic analysis of a detailed onedimensional biofilm model that explicitly accounts for planktonic bacterial invasion in a multispecies biofilm. The objective is (1) to quantify and ... 
Finiteenergy Lévytype motion through heterogeneous ensemble of Brownian particles
(Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical, 20190201)Complex systems are known to display anomalous diffusion, whose signature is a space/time scaling $x \sim t^\delta$ with $\delta \neq 1/2$ in the probability density function (PDF). Anomalous diffusion can emerge jointly ... 
Firespotting generated fires. Part I: The role of atmospheric stability
(Applied Mathematical Modelling, 201902)This is the first part of two papers concerning firespotting generated fires. In this part we deal with the impact of macroscale factors, such as the atmospheric stability, and in the second part we deal with mesoscale ... 
Noncooperative Equilibria of Fermi Systems With Long Range Interactions
(Memoirs of the AMS, 201307)We define a Banach space $\mathcal{M}_{1}$ of models for fermions or quantum spins in the lattice with long range interactions and explicit the structure of (generalized) equilibrium states for any $\mathfrak{m}\in ... 
Modeling anomalous heat diffusion: Comparing fractional derivative and nonlinear diffusivity treatments
(International Journal of Thermal Sciences, 201811)In the Fourier heat conduction equation, when the flux definition is expressed as the product of a constant diffusivity and the temperature gradient, the characteristic length scale evolves as the square root of time. ... 
Isotropic BipolaronFermionExchange Theory and Unconventional Pairing in Cuprate Superconductors
(Ann. Phys. (Berl.), 20181210)The discovery of hightemperature superconductors in 1986 represented a major experimental breakthrough (Nobel Prize 1987), but their theoretical explanation is still a subject of much debate. These materials have many ... 
Accuracy of Classical Conductivity Theory at Atomic Scales for Free Fermions in Disordered Media
(J. Math. Pures Appl., 20190122)The growing need for smaller electronic components has recently sparked the interest in the breakdown of the classical conductivity theory near the atomic scale, at which quantum effects should dominate. In 2012, experimental ... 
Decay of Complextime Determinantal and Pfaffian\ Correlation Functionals in Lattices
(Commun. Math. Phys., 20180124)We supplement the determinantal and Pfaffian bounds of Sims and Warzel (Commun Math Phys 347:903931, 2016) for manybody localization of quasifree fermions, by considering the high dimensional case and complextime ... 
Modeling nonstationarities in highfrequency financial time series
(Physica A: Statistical Mechanics and its Applications, 201901)We study tickbytick financial returns for the FTSE MIB index of the Italian Stock Exchange (Borsa Italiana). We confirm previously detected nonstationarities. Scaling properties reported before for other highfrequency ... 
Centreofmass like superposition of OrnsteinUhlenbeck processes: A pathway to nonautonomous stochastic differential equations and to fractional diffusion
(Fractional Calculus and Applied Analysis, 20181025)We consider an ensemble of Ornstein–Uhlenbeck processes featuring a population of relaxation times and a population of noise amplitudes that characterize the heterogeneity of the ensemble. We show that the centreofmass ... 
The Discretenessdriven Relaxation of Collisionless Gravitating Systems: Entropy Evolution in External Potentials, Ndependence, and the Role of Chaos
(The Astrophysical Journal, 20190110)We investigate the old problem of the fast relaxation of collisionless Nbody systems that are collapsing or perturbed, emphasizing the importance of (noncollisional) discreteness effects. We integrate orbit ensembles in ... 
A jacobian module for disentanglements and applications to Mond's conjecture
(Revista Matemática Complutense, 2019)Let $f:(\mathbb C^n,S)\to (\mathbb C^{n+1},0)$ be a germ whose image is given by $g=0$. We define an $\mathcal O_{n+1}$module $M(g)$ with the property that $\mathscr A_e$$\operatorname{codim}(f)\le \dim_\mathbb C M(g)$, ... 
RandomFront 2.3 A physical parametrisation of firespotting for operational fire spread models: Implementation in WRFSfire and response analysis with LSFire+
(Geoscientific Model Development, 201812)Firespotting is often responsible for a dangerous flare up in the wildfire and causes secondary ignitions isolated from the primary fire zone leading to perilous situations. The main aim of the present research to provide ... 
On Zariski’s multiplicity problem at infinity
(Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society, 20180814)We address a metric version of Zariski's multiplicity conjecture at infinity that says that two complex algebraic affine sets which are biLipschitz homeomorphic at infinity must have the same degree. More specifically, ... 
Measurevalued weak solutions to some kinetic equations with singular kernels for quantum particles
(20181219)In this thesis, we present a mathematical study of three problems arising in the kinetic theory of quantum gases. In the first part, we consider a Boltzmann equation that is used to describe the time evolution of the ... 
Singularities in Geometry and Topology
(20180618)This thesis consists of two different topics that are not related. The thesis has two different and independent parts that can be read in any order. The purpose of this work is to study two topics in singularity theory: ... 
Crossover from anomalous to normal diffusion: truncated powerlaw noise correlations and applications to dynamics in lipid bilayers
(New Journal of Physics, 20181018)The emerging diffusive dynamics in many complex systems shows a characteristic crossover behaviour from anomalous to normal diffusion which is otherwise fitted by two independent powerlaws. A prominent example for a ...
