Variational problems and dynamics
MetadataShow full item record
The work performed under this grant can be divided into three areas, kinetic theory, random Schrödinger operators and sharp functional inequalities. The scientific objective of the grant was three-fold. One goal was to finish a program concerning approach to equilibrium for a model of colliding hard spheres. The second goal was to push ahead on the problem of proving localization for the random displacement model - a problem that has been open for 20 years. The third part consisted in establishing some classical Sobolev type inequalities for fractional derivatives.
