Title: Generalized Clifford-Severi inequality and the volume of irregular varieties
Authors: Barja Yáñez, Miguel Ángel
Abstract: We give a sharp lower bound for the selfintersection of a nef li
ne bundle L on an irregular variety X in terms of its continuous global sections and the Albanese dim
ension of X, which we call the Generalized Clifford-Severi inequality. We also extend the result to nef
vector bundles and give a slope inequality for fibred irregular varieties. As a byproduct we obtain a lower b
ound for the volume of irregular varieties; when X is of maximal Albanese dimension the bound is vol(X)=2n!¿¿X
and it is sharp.

Title: Local description of phylogenetic group-based models

Abstract: Motivated by phylogenetics, our aim is to obtain a system of equations that
de ne a phylogenetic variety on an open set containing the biologically meaningful points. In
this paper we consider phylogenetic varieties de ned via group-based models. For any nite
abelian group G, we provide an explicit construction of codimX phylogenetic invariants
(polynomial equations) of degree at most jGj that de ne the variety X on a Zariski open set
U. The set U contains all biologically meaningful points when G is the group of the Kimura
3-parameter model. In particular, our main result con rms [Mic12, Conjecture 7.9] and, on
the set U, Conjectures 29 and 30 of [SS05].2014-03-25T19:26:25ZTesting of the three multiplicatively closed (Lie Markov) model heirarchies which respect purine/pyrimidine, Watson-Crick, and amino/keto nucleotide groupings

Title: Testing of the three multiplicatively closed (Lie Markov) model heirarchies which respect purine/pyrimidine, Watson-Crick, and amino/keto nucleotide groupings
Authors: Woodhams, Michael D.; Fernández Sánchez, Jesús; Sumner, Jeremy
Abstract: We present three hierarchies of Lie Markov models of DNA sequence evolution. These models are
(locally) “multiplicatively closed,” meaning that the composition of two Markov matrices in the
model results, with some (rare) exceptions, in a third Markov matrix that is still in the model.
Additionally, the models in each hierarchy respectively distinguish between (i) purines and pyrimadines
(RY), (ii) Watson-Crick pairs (WS), and (iii) amino/keto pairs (MK), but otherwise treat
the four nucleotides without distinction. The multiplicative closure property allows mathematically
consistent modeling of time-inhomogeneous scenarios, unlike models that are not closed, such
as the general time-reversible model (GTR) and many of its submodels. We derive the nesting
relationships of the three model hierarchies and present software implementing the models. For a
diverse range of biological data sets, we perform Bayesian information criterion model comparision
analogous to that of the ModelTest framework. We find that our models outperform the GTR
model in some (but not all) cases.2014-03-25T17:59:41ZLie Markov models with purine/pyrimidine symmetry

Title: Lie Markov models with purine/pyrimidine symmetry
Authors: Fernández Sánchez, Jesús; Sumner, Jeremy; Jarvis, Peter; Woodhams, Michael D.
Abstract: Continuous-time Markov chains are a standard tool in phylogenetic inference. If homogeneity is assumed, the chain is formulated by specifying time-independent rates of substitutions between states in the chain. In applications, there are usually extra constraints on the rates, depending on the situation. If a model is formulated in this way, it is possible to generalise it and allow for an inhomogeneous process, with time-dependent rates satisfying the same constraints. It is then useful to require that there exists a homogeneous average of this inhomogeneous process within the same model. This leads to the definition of "Lie Markov models", which are precisely the class of models where such an average exists. These models form Lie algebras and hence concepts from Lie group theory are central to their derivation. In this paper, we concentrate on applications to phylogenetics and nucleotide evolution, and derive the complete hierarchy of Lie Markov models that respect the grouping of nucleotides into purines and pyrimidines -- that is, models with purine/pyrimidine symmetry. We also discuss how to handle the subtleties of applying Lie group methods, most naturally defined over the complex field, to the stochastic case of a Markov process, where parameter values are restricted to be real and positive. In particular, we explore the geometric embedding of the cone of stochastic rate matrices within the ambient space of the associated complex Lie algebra.2014-03-25T17:13:58ZPeriodic orbits of planar integrable birational maps

Title: Periodic orbits of planar integrable birational maps
Authors: Gálvez Carrillo, Maria Immaculada; Mañosa Fernández, Víctor
Abstract: A birational planar map F possessing a rational ﬁrst integral preserves a
foliation of the plane given by algebraic curves which, if F is not globally periodic,
is given by a foliation of curves that have generically genus 0 or 1. In the genus 1
case, the group structure of the foliation characterizes the dynamics of any birational
map preserving it. We will see how to take advantage of this structure to ﬁnd periodic
orbits of such maps.2014-02-25T12:09:41ZSymplectic topology of b-symplectic manifolds

Abstract: A Poisson manifold (M2n; ) is b-symplectic if
Vn is transverse

to address global questions pertaining to b-symplectic manifolds. The main
results provide constructions of: b-symplectic submanifolds a la Donaldson,
b-symplectic structures on open manifolds by Gromov's h-principle, and of
b-symplectic manifolds with a prescribed singular locus, by means of surgeries.2014-02-11T13:34:06ZAn extension problem for the CR fractional Laplacian

. These are higher di-
mensional analogues, both in the center and hyperbolic directions,
of the models studied in [DLS03, DLS06a, GL06a, GL06b]. All
these models present the
large gap problem
.
We show that, for 0

1, under regularity and explicit non-
degeneracy conditions on the model, there are orbits whose action
variables
I
perform rather arbitrary excursions in a domain of size
O
(1). This domain includes resonance lines and, hence, large gaps
among
d
-dimensional KAM tori.
The method of proof follows closely the strategy of [DLS03,
DLS06a]. The main new phenomenon that appears when the di-
mension
d
of the center directions is larger than one, is the exis-
tence of multiple resonances. We show that, since these multiple
resonances happen in sets of codimension greater than one in the
space of actions
I
, they can be contoured. This corresponds to
the mechanism called
di usion across resonances
in the Physics
literature.
The present paper, however, di ers substantially from [DLS03,
DLS06a]. On the technical details of the proofs, we have taken
advantage of the theory of the scattering map [DLS08], not avail-
able when the above papers were written. We have analyzed the
conditions imposed on the resonances in more detail.
More precisely, we have found that there is a simple condition
on the Melnikov potential which allows us to conclude that the res-
onances are crossed. In particular, this condition does not depend
on the resonances. So that the results are new even when applied
to the models in [DLS03, DLS06a]2013-11-20T12:48:04ZToric actions on b-symplectic manifolds

Abstract: We study Hamiltonian actions on b-symplectic manifolds with a focus on the e ective case of half the dimension of the manifold.
In particular, we prove a Delzant-type theorem that classi es these manifolds using polytopes that reside in a certain enlarged and decorated version of the dual of the Lie algebra of the torus. At the end of the
paper we suggest further avenues of study, including an example of a toric action on a
b 2-manifold and applications of our ideas to integrable systems on b-manifolds2013-10-17T16:13:15ZExponentially small asymptotic estimates for the splitting of separatrices to whiskered tori with quadratic and cubic frequencies

Title: Exponentially small asymptotic estimates for the splitting of separatrices to whiskered tori with quadratic and cubic frequencies

Abstract: We study the splitting of invariant manifolds of whiskered t
ori with two or three frequencies in nearly-integrable
Hamiltonian systems. We consider 2-dimensional tori with a
frequency vector

irrational number, or 3-dimensional tori with a frequency v

Applying the Poincar ́e–Melnikov method, we find exponentia
lly small asymptotic estimates for the maximal splitting
distance between the stable and unstable manifolds associa
ted to the invariant torus, showing that such estimates
depend strongly on the arithmetic properties of the frequen
cies. In the quadratic case, we use the continued fractions
theory to establish a certain arithmetic property, fulfille
d in 24 cases, which allows us to provide asymptotic estimate
s
in a simple way. In the cubic case, we focus our attention to th
e case in which Ω is the so-called cubic golden number
(the real root of
x

similitudes and differences
between the results obtained for both the quadratic and cubi

Abstract: A signi cant research activity has occurred in the area of convex semi-

the algorithmic development. This article is motivated by the scarcity of con-
vex semi-in nite test problems and describes a procedure for generating convex
