The low density Fermi gas in three dimensions

In recent decades, the study of many-body systems has been an active area of research in both physics and mathematics. In this talk we consider a system of N interacting fermions with spin 1/2 confined in a box in the dilute regime. We are interested in studying the correlation energy, defined as the difference between the energy of the fundamental state and that of the free Fermi gas. We will discuss some recent results on a first-order asymptotic for the correlation energy in the thermodynamic limit, where the number of particles and the size of the box are sent to infinity while keeping the density fixed. In particular, we will present some recent results for the correlation energy that go in the direction of a rigorous proof of the well-known Huang-Yang formula of 1957.

Regularity theory for elliptic and parabolic PDE

In this talk, we’ll explore how regularity theory is crucial for understanding partial differential equations (PDEs), and how it has consequences in physics and numerical analysis. We’ll first focus on why regularity matters, then take elliptic and parabolic PDEs as examples to talk about classical and recent regularity results. The goal is to give a practical overview, explaining when PDE solutions are smooth or singular.

Aspects of free and interacting quantum field theories on curved backgrounds

This initiative is part of the “PhD Lectures” activity of the project “Departments of Excellence 2023-2027” of the Department of Mathematics of Politecnico di Milano. This activity consists of seminars open to PhD students, followed by meetings with the speaker to discuss and go into detail on the topics presented at the talk.
