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 ... 
On a Boltzmann equation for Compton scattering, from non relativistic electrons at low density.
(20180815)A Boltzmann equation, used to describe the Compton scattering in the nonrelativistic limit is considered. A truncation of the very singular redistribution function is introduced and justified. The existence of weak solutions ... 
On a system of equations for the normal fluid  condensate interaction in a Bose gas
(20180327)The existence of global solutions for a system of differential equations is proved, and some of their properties are described. The system involves a kinetic equation for quantum particles. It is a simplified version of ... 
Existence of “$d$wave” Pairs and Density Waves in a Class of Microscopic Models for High Transition Temperature Superconductors
(20180321)Hightemperature superconductors have different properties than conventional superconductors, one of these important properties is nonisotropic symmetry of the order parameter. In this work we present a model that shows ... 
Universal bounds for large determinants from noncommutative Hölder inequalities in fermionic constructive quantum field theory
(Mathematical Models and Methods in Applied Sciences (M3AS), 20170802)Efficiently bounding large determinants is an essential step in nonrelativistic fermionic constructive quantum field theory to prove the absolute convergence of the perturbation expansion of correlation functions in terms ... 
Isotropic BipolaronFermionExchange Theory and Unconventional Pairing in Cuprate Superconductors
(20170503)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 ... 
Geometric inequalities from phase space translations
(20160722)We establish a quantum version of the classical isoperimetric inequality relating the Fisher information and the entropy power of a quantum state. The key tool is a Fisher information inequality for a state which results ... 
DWave pairing driven by bipolaric modes related to giant electronphonon anomalies in highTc superconductors
(Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment, 20151231)Taking into account microscopic properties of most usual highTc superconductors, like cuprates, we define a class of microscopic model Hamiltonians for two fermions (electrons or holes) and one boson (bipolaron) on the ... 
Heat production of noninteracting fermions subjected to electric fields
(Communications on Pure and Applied Mathematics, 20140721)Electric resistance in conducting media is related to heat (or entropy) production in the presence of electric fields. In this paper, by using Araki's relative entropy for states, we mathematically define and analyze the ... 
From the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics to AC–Conductivity Measures of Interacting Fermions in Disordered Media
(Mathematical Models and Methods in Applied Sciences, 20150520)We study the dynamics of interacting lattice fermions with random hopping amplitudes and random static potentials, in presence of timedependent electromagnetic fields. The interparticle interaction is shortrange and ... 
ACConductivity Measure from Heat Production of Free Fermions in Disordered Media
(Archive for Rational Mechanics and Analysis, 20151231)We extend (Bru et al. in J Math Phys 56:051901151, 2015) in order to study the linear response of free fermions on the lattice within a (independently and identically distributed) random potential to a macroscopic electric ...

Lieb–Robinson Bounds for Multi–Commutators and Applications to Response Theory
(20160101)We generalize to multi–commutators the usual Lieb–Robinson bounds for commutators. In the spirit of constructive QFT, this is done so as to allow the use of combinatorics of minimally connected graphs (tree expan sions) ...
