Size Multipartite Ramsey Numbers of Graphs

School
MATHEMATICS

Given two graphs $H$ and $G$‎, ‎the size multipartite Ramsey number $ m_j (H,G )$ is the smallest natural number $t$ such that an arbitrary coloring of the edges‎ ‎of $K_{j imes t}$‎, ‎complete multipartite graph whose vertex set is partitioned into $j$ parts each of size $t$‎, ‎using two colors red and blue‎, ‎necessarily forces a red copy of $H$ or a blue copy of $G$ as a subgraph‎. ‎The notion of size multipartite Ramsey number has been introduced by Burger and Vuuren in 2004‎. ‎It is worth noting that‎, ‎this concept is derived by u ...

The multi-component quantum chemistry: A brief survey on some theoretical, computational and conceptual challenges

School
NANO SCIENCES

The orthodox many-body theory of atoms, molecules and condensed phases is the electronic structure theory plus the theory of nuclear vibrations and rotations. The basic tent of this theory is the Born-Oppenheimer separation of the electronic and nuclear dynamics through deriving two Schrodinger equations, one for electrons, and the other for nuclei. The electronic Schrodinger equation, which conceives electrons as the sole quantum particles within the external field produced by clamped nuclei, yields the electronic eigenvalues, i.e. the potential energy surfaces, and the electronic eigenfunctions. On the other hand, the nuclear Schrodinger eq ...

Automorphic Functions and Parity via Dynamics

School
MATHEMATICS

The interplay of the geometric and the spectral properties of Riemannian manifolds are highly influential in essentially all areas of mathematics, but are far from being fully understood. Some of the recent advancements in understanding this relation could be achieved by means of transfer operators. I shall overview some recent developments in this area with a focus on hyperbolic surfaces, automorphic functions, resonances and the dynamics of the geodesic flow and with an emphasis on insights and heuristics. In particular, I will, at the example of Hecke triangle groups, discuss how an outer symmetry in the dynamics tran ...

Hironaka's Question F and its Simplification

School
MATHEMATICS

A special case of Hironaka's QUESTION F, named F', asks about the strong factorization of birational maps between reduced nonsingular algebraic schemes, which is still open. Suppose that $varphi : Xdashrightarrow Y$ is such a map, and let $Usubset X$ be the open subset where $varphi$ is an isomorphism. This problem asks if there exists a diagram $$xymatrix{ & Z ar[dl]_{varphi_{1}}ar[dr]^{varphi_{2}}X ar[rr]^{varphi} & & Y}$$ where the morphisms $varphi_{1}$ and $varphi_{2}$ are sequences of blow-ups of non-singular centers disjoint from $U$. In this talk, we will discuss how strong factorization can be simplified by providing a complete ...
