Robust numerical methods for nonlocal diffusion and convection-diffusion equations.

Prof. Espen Jakobsen

In this talk we will introduce and analyse a class of robust numerical methods for nonlocal possibly nonlinear diffusion and convection-diffusion equations. Diffusion and convection-diffusion models are popular in Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, and Economics, and in many models the diffusion is anomalous or nonlocal. This means that the underlying “particle" distributions are not Gaussian, but rather follow more general Levy distributions, distributions that need not have second moments and can satisfy (generalised) central limit theorems. We will focus on models with nonlinear possibly degenerate diffusions like fractional Porous Medium Equations, Fast Diffusion Equations, and Stefan (phase transition) Problems, with or without convection. The solutions of these problems can be very irregular and even possess shock discontinuities. The combination of nonlinear problems and irregular solutions makes these problems challenging to solve numerically.
The methods we will discuss are monotone finite difference quadrature methods that are robust in the sense that they “always” converge. By that we mean that under very weak assumptions, they converge to the correct generalised possibly discontinuous generalised solution. In some cases we can also obtain error estimates. The plan of the talk is: 1. to give a short introduction to the models, 2. explain the numerical methods, 3. give results and elements of the analysis for pure diffusion equations, and 4. give results and ideas of the analysis for convection-diffusion equations.

From classical tilting to 2-term silting

Aslak Buan

We give a short reminder about central results of classical tilting theory, 
including the Brenner-Butler tilting theorem, and
homological properties of tilted and quasi-tilted algebras. We then discuss 
2-term silting complexes and endomorphism algebras of such objects,
and in particular show that some of these classical results have very natural 
generalizations in this setting.

Grothendieck groups of higher triangulated categories

Petter Bergh
By classical results of Thomason, the Grothendieck group of a

triangulated category classifies the triangulated subcategories. More

precisely, there is a bijective correspondence between the set of

triangulated subcategories and the set of subgroups of the Grothendieck

group. In this talk, we extend Thomason's results to "higher"

triangulated categories, namely the recently introduced n-angulated

categories. This is joint work with Marius Thaule.

Tate-Hochschild cohomology of Frobenius algebras

Petter Bergh
This is based on joint work with Dave Jorgensen. Given a Gorenstein algebra,

one can define Tate-Hochschild cohomology groups. These are defined for all

degrees, non-negative as well as negative, and they agree with the usual

Hochschild cohomology groups for all degrees larger than the injective

dimension of the algebra. We prove certain duality theorems relating the

cohomology groups in positive degree to those in negative degree, in the

case where the algebra is Frobenius (for example symmetric). We explicitly

compute all Tate-Hochschild cohomology groups for certain classes of

Frobenius algebras, namely, certain quantum complete intersections.
