PhD Seminar

We are happy to introduce you to the talks of our PhD seminar!

Next PhD Seminar:02.12.2020, 16:30-17:00. Florian Fischer (Universität Potsdam)

  • We will start with coffee and introduction round and Infos about the planned SIAM student chapter at 16:00!
  • Title: What are Optimal Hardy Inequalities?
  • Abstract: I will give an overview of recent developments in the study of Hardy-type inequalities on manifolds and on graphs. In particular, I will present a technique to get 'as large as possible' Hardy weights which is made precise by the notion of optimality. Moreover, I will restrict myself to Laplacians on smooth manifolds and bounded combinatorial graphs, although the results remain true in far greater generality. This talk will summarise a survey paper by Keller, Pinchover and Pogorzelski (2020).
Next Social Events:
  • Pub quiz: tba
