Abstract
Although much of the theory of Fourier multipliers has focused on the $(L^{p},L^{p})$-boundedness
 of such operators, for many applications it suffices that a Fourier multiplier operator is bounded
 from $L^{p}$ to $L^{q}$ with p and q not necessarily equal. Moreover, one can derive 
(L^{p},L^{q})-boundedness results for $p\neq q$ under different, and often weaker, assumptions
 than in the case $p=q$. In this talk I will explain some recent results on the
 $(L^{p},L^{q})$-boundedness of operator-valued Fourier multipliers. Also, I will sketch some
 applications to the stability theory for $C_{0}$-semigroups and functional calculus theory. 

 

This talk will be transmitted from Warsaw to us and Dresden, provided that Warsaw get things set up.  We will not be using the TCC facility,

so the location will be C1.

Abstract

We consider a system of coupled second order integro-differential evolution equations in a Hilbert space, which is partially damped through memory effects. A global existence theorem regarding the solutions to its Cauchy problem is given, only under basic conditions that the memory kernels possess positive definite primitives but without nonnegative/decreasing assumptions. Following this, we find an approach to successfully obtain the stability of the system energy and various decay rates. Moreover, the abstract results are applied to several concrete systems in the real world, including the Timoshenko type. This is a joint work with Professor Ti-Jun Xiao (Fudan University) and Professor Jin Liang (Shanghai Jiaotong University)

Abstract

A subshift is characterized by a set of allowable words on $d$ symbols. In a sense it encodes the allowable operations an automaton performs. In the late 1990's Matsumoto constructed a C*-algebra associated to a subshift, deriving initially his motivation from the work of Cuntz-Krieger. These C*-algebras were then studied in depth in a series of papers. In 2009 Shalit-Solel discovered a relation of the subshift algebras with their variants of operator algebras related to homogeneous ideals. In particular a subshift corresponds to a monomial ideal under this prism.

In a recent work with Shalit we take a closer look at these cases and study them in terms of classification programmes on nonselfadjoint operator algebras and Arveson's Programme on the C*-envelope. We investigate two nonselfadjoint operator algebras from one SFT and show that they completely classify the SFT: (a) up to the same allowable words, and (b) up to local conjugacy of the quantized dynamics. In addition we discover that the C*-algebra fitting Arveson's Programme is the quotient by the generalized compacts, rather than taking unconditionally all compacts as Matsumoto does. Actually there is a nice dichotomy that depends on the structure of the monomial ideal.

Nevertheless in the process we accomplish more in different directions. This happens as our case study is carried in the intersection of C*-correspondences, subproduct systems, dynamical systems and subshifts. In this talk we will give the basic steps of our results with some comments on their proofs.

Abstract

The Bergman space $A_2(\mathbb D)$ is the closed subspace of $L^2(\mathbb D)$ consisting of analytic functions, where $\mathbb D$ denotes the unit
disk. One considers the projection from $L^2(\mathbb D)$ into $A_2(\mathbb D)$, such a projection can be written as an integral operator
with a singular kernel. In this talk, we will present the recent advances on the one weight and two weight theory for the
Bergman projection, in particular we will discuss the Sarason Conjecture for the Bergman space, sharp weighted estimates for the Bergman projection and a description of a $B_{\infty}$ class that has been until now absent. This is joint work with A. Aleman and S. Pott from Lund University (Sweden).
