Petermichl (2000), Dyadic shifts and a logarithmic estimate for Hankel operators with matrix symbol) is a Calder\'{o}n-Zygmund type operator on an adequate metric normal space of homogeneous ...

Hierarchy of correlations: Application to Green's functions and interacting topological phasesDec 24 2015Jul 20 2016We study the many-body physics of different quantum systems using a hierarchy of correlations, which corresponds to a generalization of the $1/\mathcal{Z}$ hierarchy. The decoupling scheme obtained from this hierarchy is adapted to calculate double-time ... More

Hierarchy of correlations for the Ising model in the Majorana representationMay 10 2017Oct 12 2017We study the quantum Ising model in D dimensions with the equation of motion technique, in combination with the Majorana representation for spins. The decoupling scheme used for the Green's functions is based on the hierarchy of correlations in position ... More

The velocity anisotropy of the Milky Way satellite systemOct 24 2018We analyse the orbital kinematics of the Milky Way (MW) satellite system utilizing the latest systemic proper motions for 38 satellites based on data from $Gaia$ Data Release 2. Combining these data with distance and line-of-sight velocity measurements ... More

Optimization of anemia treatment in hemodialysis patients via reinforcement learningSep 14 2015Objective: Anemia is a frequent comorbidity in hemodialysis patients that can be successfully treated by administering erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs). ESAs dosing is currently based on clinical protocols that often do not account for the high ... More
