Title: Nonlinear equations for fractional Laplacians, I: Regularity, maximum principles, and Hamiltonian estimates
Authors: Cabré Vilagut, Xavier; Sire, Yannick
Abstract: This is the first of two articles dealing with the equation (-)sv = f (v) in Rn, with s ¿ (0,1), where (-)s stands for the fractional Laplacian — the in¿nitesimal generator of a Lévy process. This equation can be realized as a local linear degenerate elliptic equation in Rn+1+ together with a nonlinear Neumann boundary condition on ¿Rn+1 + =Rn.
In this ¿rst article, we establish necessary conditions on the nonlinearity f to admit certain type of solutions, with special interest in bounded increasing solutions in all of R. These necessary conditions (which will be proven in a follow-up paper to be also suficient for the existence of a bounded increasing solution) are derived from an equality and an estimate involving a Hamiltonian — in the spirit of a result of Modica for the Laplacian. Our proofs are uniform ass ¿1, establishing in the limit the corresponding known results for the Laplacian.
In addition, we study regularity issues, as well as maximum and Harnack principles associated to the equation.http://hdl.handle.net/2117/22391Cabré Vilagut, Xavier; Sire, YannicknoThis is the first of two articles dealing with the equation (-)sv = f (v) in Rn, with s ¿ (0,1), where (-)s stands for the fractional Laplacian — the in¿nitesimal generator of a Lévy process.

Title: A note on symplectic and Poisson linearization of semisimple Lie algebra actions
Authors: Miranda Galcerán, Eva
Abstract: In this note we prove that an analytic symplectic action of a semisimple Lie algebra can be locally linearized in Darboux coordinates. This result yields simultaneous analytic linearization for Hamiltonian vector fields in a neighbourhood of a common zero. We also provide an example of smooth non-linearizable Hamiltonian action with semisimple linear part. The smooth analogue only holds if the semisimple Lie algebra is of compact type. An analytic equivariant b-Darboux theorem for b-Poisson manifolds and an analytic equivariant Weinstein splitting theorem for general Poisson manifolds are also obtained in the Poisson settingMon, 23 Mar 2015 16:46:48 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/269602015-03-23T16:46:48ZMiranda Galcerán, EvanoIn this note we prove that an analytic symplectic action of a semisimple Lie algebra can be locally linearized in Darboux coordinates.

Title: A distributed attitude control law for formation flying based on the Cucker-smale model
Authors: Paita, Fabrizio; Gómez Muntané, Gerard; Masdemont Soler, Josep
Abstract: In this paper we consider the attitude synchronization problem for a swarm of spacecrafts flying in formation.
Starting from previous works on consensus dynamics, we construct a distributed attitude control law and derive analytically
sufficient conditions for the formation to converge asymptotically towards a synchronized, non–accelerating state (possibly defined a priori). Moreover, motivated by the results obtained on a particular consensus model, first introduced by F. Cucker and S. Smale to modellize the translational dynamics of flocks, we numerically explore
the dependence of the convergence process on the dimension of the formation and the relative initial conditions of the spacecrafts. Finally, we generalize the class of weights defined by the previous authors in order to dampen the aforementioned effects, thus making our control law suitable for very large formations.Thu, 12 Mar 2015 09:06:25 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/266702015-03-12T09:06:25ZPaita, Fabrizio; Gómez Muntané, Gerard; Masdemont Soler, JosepnoIn this paper we consider the attitude synchronization problem for a swarm of spacecrafts flying in formation.

Title: Credit risk contributions under the Vasicek one-factor model: a fast wavelet expansion approximation
Authors: Masdemont Soler, Josep; Ortiz-Gracia, Luis
Abstract: To measure the contribution of individual transactions inside the total risk of a credit portfolio is a major issue in financial institutions. VaR Contributions (VaRC) and Expected Shortfall Contributions (ESC) have become two popular ways of quantifying the risks. However, the usual Monte Carlo (MC) approach is known to be a very time consum-
ing method for computing these risk contributions. In this paper we consider the Wavelet Approximation (WA) method for Value at Risk (VaR) computation presented in [Mas10] in order to calculate the Expected Shortfall (ES) and the risk contributions under the Vasicek
one-factor model framework. We decompose the VaR and the ES as a sum of sensitivities representing the marginal impact on the total portfolio risk. Moreover, we present technical improvements in the Wavelet Approximation (WA) that considerably reduce the computa-
tional effort in the approximation while, at the same time, the accuracy increasesThu, 05 Mar 2015 12:53:03 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/265972015-03-05T12:53:03ZMasdemont Soler, Josep; Ortiz-Gracia, LuisnoTo measure the contribution of individual transactions inside the total risk of a credit portfolio is a major issue in financial institutions.

Title: Structural stability of planar bimodal linear systems
Authors: Ferrer Llop, Josep; Peña Carrera, Marta; Susín Sánchez, Antonio
Abstract: Structural stability ensures that the qualitative behavior of a system is preserved under small perturbations. We study it for planar bimodal linear dynamical systems, that is, systems consisting of two linear dynamics acting on each side of a given hyperplane and assuming continuity along the separating hyperplane. We describe which one of these systems is structurally stable when (real) spiral does not appear and when it does we give necessary and sufficient conditions concerning finite periodic orbits and saddle connections. In particular, we study the finite periodic orbits and the homoclinic orbits in the saddle/spiral case.Thu, 05 Feb 2015 10:53:33 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/262262015-02-05T10:53:33ZFerrer Llop, Josep; Peña Carrera, Marta; Susín Sánchez, AntonionoVECTOR-FIELDSStructural stability ensures that the qualitative behavior of a system is preserved under small perturbations.

Abstract: Motivated by phylogenetics, our aim is to obtain a system of low degree equations that define a phylogenetic variety on an open set containing the biologically meaningful points. In this paper we consider phylogenetic varieties defined via group-based models. For any finite abelian group G , we provide an explicit construction of codimX polynomial equations (phylogenetic invariants) of degree at most |G| that define 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 confirms (Michalek, Toric varieties: phylogenetics and derived categories, PhD thesis, Conjecture 7.9, 2012) and, on the set U , Conjectures 29 and 30 of Sturmfels and Sullivant (J Comput Biol 12:204–228, 2005).Thu, 22 Jan 2015 12:01:03 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/260292015-01-22T12:01:03ZCasanellas Rius, Marta; Fernández Sánchez, Jesús; Michalek, MateusznoMotivated by phylogenetics, our aim is to obtain a system of low degree equations that define a phylogenetic variety on an open set containing the biologically meaningful points.

We prove that under additional conditions on the nonlinearity uniqueness holds up to isometry. Then we provide several symmetry results and qualitative properties of the layer solutions. Finally, we consider the multilayer case, at least when gamma is close to one.Thu, 08 Jan 2015 12:16:16 GMThttp://hdl.handle.net/2117/251752015-01-08T12:16:16ZGonzález Nogueras, María del Mar; Saéz, Mariel; Sire, YannicknoFractional Laplacian, Hyperbolic space, Layer solution, Symmetry, SEMILINEAR ELLIPTIC-EQUATIONS, PHASE-TRANSITIONS, SYMMETRY, CONJECTURE, REGULARITY, MANIFOLDS, GIORGIWe investigate the equation; (-Delta(Hn))(gamma) w = f(w) in H-n,; where (-Delta(Hn))(gamma) corresponds to the fractional Laplacian on hyperbolic space for gamma is an element of(0, 1) and f is a smooth nonlinearity that typically comes from a double well potential.
