In this talk I will discuss concentration phenomena of eigenfunctions of the Laplacian on closed Riemannian manifolds. I will show that the volume measure of a closed manifold concentrates around nodal sets of eigenfunctions exponentially. I will also explain restricted exponential concentration inequalities and Sogge type reverse Holder inequalities for eigenfunctions. This talk is based ...

The study of quantum materials in out-of-equilibrium conditions following excitation with ultrafast lasers represents one of the novel research frontiers in condensed matter physics. With femtosecond optical pulses, electronic and lattice degrees of freedom can be transiently decoupled, giving the opportunity of stabilizing new states inaccessible by quasi-adiabatic pathways. This becomes particularly interesting for the ... Read more about "Ultrafast study of out-of-equilibrium quantum materials - LACUS Seminar"

Pathogen properties in infected host tissues are crucial for disease and control. Novel single-cell technologies reveal an astonishing diversity of pathogen cells with disparate molecular compositions, fates, and impact on overall disease progression. A current key challenge is to understand the relation between these various pathogen subsets and their respective host microenvironments. As a first ...
