Abstract: After a short presentation of my research in different areas of Statistical Mechanics (monomer-dimer models, deep Boltzmann machines, and multi-bath Langevin dynamics), I will focus on recent results about convergence of multi-bath dynamics to a stationary non-equilibrium measure. This (explicit) measure is related to the scheme proposed by F. Guerra to prove the validity of Parisi solution for the S-K spin glass model. In a joint work with N. Macris and E. Mingione we have considered two finite subsystems -coupled by a potential V(x,y)- which evolve with wildly different time-scales, in contact with two thermal baths. We have shown that when the potential satisfies two suitable logarithmic Sobolev inequalities, the long-time behaviour of the finite system is described by the aforementioned measure. Examples and open problems related to spin glass theory and high-dimensional inference will be discussed.
Abstract: In this talk, we will present some recent and new results on the optimal control of the Moreau’s Sweeping Process (SP). In particular, we will present a novel approach for proving a version of the Pontryagin Maximum Principle in a quite general setting. Such an approach exploits a kind of small-time local controllability property that the SP dynamics naturally satisfies in a neighborhood of the moving constraint. Open problems and further research directions will be extensively discussed.
Abstract: A remarkable result of Alexandrov shows that a compact and embedded smooth hypersurface in the Euclidean space is a sphere, provided its scalar mean curvature is a constant function. The aim of this talk is to discuss some generalizations of this result to a general class of hypersurfaces arising in convex and integral geometry. These hypersurfaces can have a priori complicated singular sets. We also mention analogous generalizations in the anisotropic setting.
