Congratualations to Michael Khanevsky

Who was awarded the prestigious Azrieli Faculty Fellowship for academic and research excellence.

The fellowship is awarded to 8 young faculty who are to receive their first full-time faculty appointment at an Israeli university during the academic year 2016-17.

Out of these 8 young faculty, 3 are from the Technion!

Title : Scaling transformations in definitions of spaces, convergence and inequalities
Speaker : Cyril Tintarev, Uppsala University
Place : Amado 814, Technion
Abstract    

Scaling transformations (translations and dilations) are known to define wavelet bases, give equivalent definitions of important functional spaces, and prove optimal inequalities. We will summarize some known results in the Euclidean case and on nilpotent Lie groups, and discuss the work in progress dealing with analogous transformations on manifolds, where scaling is defined via the Green's function of Laplace-Beltrami operator. Preliminary results include sharp inequalities of Caffarelli-Kohn-Nirenberg type on the hyperbolic space. The work involves collaborations with L. Skrzypczak and K. Sandeep.

Title : Localized states of non-local Cahn-Hilliard equations
Speaker : Idan Versano
Place : Amado 719, Technion
Abstract    

Advisor: Nir Gavish

Abstract:  The non-local Cahn-Hilliard (Ohta-Kawasaki) equation manifests spatio-temporal behaviors driven by competing short-range forces and long-range Coulombic interactions. These models

are often being employed to study di-block copolymers, and for renewable energy applications that are based on complex nano-materials, such as ionic liquids and polyelectrolyte membranes. Asymmetric properties between different materials, e.g, phase-dependent permittivity and tilted free energy potential, are included in extended Ohta-Kawasaki model.

 Using perturbation  methods and numerical continuation methods, we study the distinct solution families of Ohta-Kawasaki equations. Specifically, we focus on spatially localized states in 1-space dimensions, and show that in gradient coupled parabolic and elliptic PDEs (phase separation coupled to electrostatics), 1D homoclinic snaking appears as not-slanted and describe the dependence of localized stripes vs. hexagons, on the domain size.
