Existence, uniqueness and vector analysis on fractals

The talk will describe how the heat kernel estimates, which are mainly due to Grigor'yan and Telcs, and related functional spaces and potential theory, imply the existence and uniqueness of self-similar Dirichlet forms (and hence Laplacians and diffusion processes) on generalized Sierpinski carpets. This is a joint result with Barlow, Bass and Kumagai. The second part of my talk will review recent results on vector analysis on such spaces, such as quasilinear PDEs, Dirac and magnetic Schrödinger operators, spectral triples, Hodge theory, Navier-Stokes equations, and some unusual properties of the classical curl operator. This includes joint results with J.P. Chen, M. Hinz, D. Kelleher, M. Röckner. The motivation for this vector analysis come from physics, such as studying magnetic properties of fractal structures.

Affine vs. Euclidean isoperimetric inequalities

In this talk we explain how every even, zonal measure on the Euclidean unit sphere gives rise to an isoperimetric inequality for sets of finite perimeter which directly implies the classical Euclidean isoperimetric inequality. The strongest member of this large family of inequalities is shown to be the only affine invariant one among them - the Petty projection inequality. As an application, a family of sharp Sobolev inequalities for functions of bounded variation is obtained, each of which is stronger than the classical Sobolev inequality. This is joint work with Christoph Haberl.

Random polytopes: limit theorems

Let η be the set of random points of a Poisson point process in Rd, and let K be a convex set of volume 1. Denote by s the mean number of random points in K, and by Ks the convex hull of these points. We are interested in properties of Ks as s tends to infinity: expectations, variances, limit theorems and large deviations for functionals of Ks.
