Feynman-Kac Equations for Reaction and Diffusion ProcessesJun 01 2017This paper provides a theoretical framework of deriving the forward and backward Feynman-Kac equations for the distribution of functionals of the path of a particle undergoing both diffusion and chemical reaction. Very general forms of the equations are ... More

Hardy Spaces ($0<p<\infty$) over Lipschitz DomainsAug 27 2017Let $0<p<\infty$, $\Gamma$ be a Lipschitz curve on the complex plane~$\mathbb{C}$ and $\Omega_+$ is the domain above $\Gamma$, we define Hardy space $H^p(\Omega_+)$ as the set of analytic functions $F$ satisfying $\sup_{\tau>0}(\int_{\Gamma} |F(\zeta+\mathrm{i}\tau)|^p ...

Convex Set of Doubly Substochastic MatricesNov 18 2017Denote $\mathcal{A}$ as the set of all doubly substochastic $m \times n$ matrices and let $k$ be a positive integer. Let $\mathcal{A}_k$ be the set of all $1/k$-bounded doubly substochastic $m \times n$ matrices, i.e., $\mathcal{A}_k \triangleq \{E \in ... More

On the global behavior of weak null quasilinear wave equationsApr 13 2018We consider a class of quasilinear wave equations in $3+1$ space-time dimensions that satisfy the "weak null condition" as defined by Lindblad and Rodnianski \cite{LR1}, and study the large time behavior of solutions to the Cauchy problem. The prototype ... More

3d steady Gradient Ricci Solitons with linear curvature decayDec 17 2016In this note, we prove that a 3-dimensional steady Ricci soliton is rotationally symmetric if its scalar curvature $R(x)$ satisfies $$\frac{C_0^{-1}}{\rho(x)}\le R(x)\le \frac{C_0}{\rho(x)}$$ for some constant $C_0>0$, where $\rho(x)$ denotes the distance ...
