Links between functions and subdifferentialsFeb 17 2018Oct 15 2018A function in a class $\mathcal{F}(X)$ is said to be subdifferentially determined in $\mathcal{F}(X)$ if it is equal up to an additive constant to any function in $\mathcal{F}(X)$ with the same subdifferential. A function is said to be subdifferentially ... More

Modular hyperbolas and Beatty sequencesAug 01 2018Aug 02 2018Bounds for $\max\{m,\tilde{m}\}$ subject to $m,\tilde{m} \in \mathbb{Z}\cap[1,p)$, $p$ prime, $z$ indivisible by $p$, $m\tilde{m}\equiv z\bmod p$ and $m$ belonging to some fixed Beatty sequence $\{ \lfloor n\alpha+\beta \rfloor : n\in\mathbb{N} \}$ are ...

Local methods for blocks of finite simple groupsDec 24 2017This survey is about old and new results about the modular representation theory of finite reductive groups with a strong emphasis on local methods. This includes subpairs, Brauer's Main Theorems, fusion, Rickard equivalences. In the defining characteristic ... More

Non-resonant tori in symplectic twist maps without conjugate pointsFeb 08 2018We study the dynamics of a symplectic twist map without conjugate points. We show that in a neighborhood of a totally periodic Lagrangian manifold, there exists a large family of invariant Lagrangian tori on which the twist map is conjugated to a translation ... More
