Título: Approximation and Sobolev Orthogonal Polynomials on Unit Ball
Abstract: For the spectral Galerkin method in numerical solution of partial differential equations, we need to understand the approximation by polynomials in the Sobolev spaces. For this purpose, it is necessary to study orthogonal structure of the Sobolev space $W_2^r$ that consists of functions whose derivatives up to $r$-th order are all in $L^2$. In this talk, we discuss new result on Sobolev orthogonal polynomials in $W_2^r$ for all positive integer $r$ and approximation in the Sobolev space on the unit ball in $\mathbb{R}^d$, and describe sharp estimate for the error of best approximation in the Sobolev space and its application in the spectral Galerkin methods.

Sesión 12:45. Andrei Martínez Finkelshtein (Universidad de Almería)
Title: Equilibrium problems related to asymptotics of Hermite-Padé polynomials.
Abstract: Polynomials of multiple orthogonality (or Hermite-Padé polynomials) arise in many problems related to number theory, random matrix theory and stochastic processes, to mention a few. It became clear recently that understanding their asymptotic is crucial for solving many open problems in these areas. It is well-known that the logarithmic potential and in particular, equilibrium measures, provide the description of the leading term of asymptotics for standard orthogonal polynomials. However, the situation is much more difficult and less clear for the Hermite-Padé polynomials, where the general theory is still to be created. I will explain some ideas about the vector equilibrium for these polynomials, based on the work of Gonchar, Rakhmanov, Aptekarev and others.

Project Summary

We will study different aspects of the geometry of symmetric spaces: geometric structures, actions of thin groups and integral geometry. More precisely the questions are:

  1. We rise the study of the space of representations of groups in the isometries of a symmetric spaces, either locally (deformations) and globally (moduli spaces). We want to study geometric structures associated to those representations, with special interest in projective structures.
  2. We aim to understand the action of thin groups in the ideal boundary of a symmetric space of higher rank. The goal is to describe the dynamics in terms of the Tits building structure, in particular we seek for discontinuity domains at infinity, if possible cocompact.
  3. We want to develop integral geometry in symmetric spaces, starting with rank one, taking the approach of valuations. We aim to deepen the results for complex projective and hyperbolic spaces and to extend them to quaternionic spaces (projective, hyperbolic and affine).

Pre-doctoral grant in Mathematical Modeling

The research group M2S2M (Mathematical Modeling and Simulation of Environmental Systems) offers two 4-year term pre-doctoral contract to prepare a Ph D Thesis. The group M2S2M performs a research activity since 1982 in Computational Fluid Dynamics, dealing with numerical modeling of environmental flows (shallow water and oceanic flows), turbulence modeling, numerical analysis, scientific computing and domain decomposition techniques. It has developed over 30 research projects with private and national and international public funding, published over 200 research papers and advised 10 Ph D Thesis.

The group M2S2M is seeking young, highly motivated researchers with good formation in applied mathematics (mathematicians, physicists, engineers, architects), who meet the following requirements:

  1. Very good ability for team work and learning.
  2. A master degree in mathematics (engineering, architecture or physics might also be considered).
  3. High level of proficiency in English or Spanish.
  4. Special interest in the fields of numerical analysis and scientific computing.

The two pre-doctoral contracts are funded by the Spanish Government, within two research projects:

  • “Development of reduced models of aero-thermal flows in buildings”.  The objective of the project is to build numerical models for the computation of the energetic efficiency of buildings, based upon the  accurate parameterization of the thermal exchange between the air and the building.  It is developed by a research team composed by applied mathematicians and thermal engineers. It is a highly challenging subject, as usual procedures for the computation of the heat exchange are un-useful due to the huge amount of degrees of freedom required.The long-term application of this research is the elaboration of computed-aided programs for the eco-efficient design of buildings, much as today structural computer-aided program allow to compute the structural charges in the process of design of building by architects.
  • “Development, analysis, and efficient implementation of high order numerical methods for simplified fluid models with data uncertainty”.   The ultimate aim of this project is the development of efficient geophysical flow simulators that are expected to become useful tools to model river and channel flows, marine currents, sedimentation/erosion processes, turbidity currents, etc. These tools play a fundamental role in operational forecasting and risk management in natural hazards, as floods, avalanches, tsunami waves, etc. To achieve this goal, simplified depth-integrated flow models will be considered whose mathematical form are nonlinear hyperbolic PDE systems that may include source terms and/or nonconservative products.

Interested candidates are requested to send their CV to Prof. Tomás Chacón, chacon@us.esand to Prof. Enrique Fernández-Nieto, edofer@us.es, specifying their interest for contract 1 or 2.

The deadline for the call is next September 10, 2013.

Detailed information (in Spanish) including the formal submission procedure is available at:http://www.idi.mineco.gob.es/portal/site/MICINN/menuitem.dbc68b34d11ccbd5d52ffeb801432ea0/?vgnextoid=68eb71d255dcf310VgnVCM1000001d04140aRCRD
