Spring 2017
We explore the connection between EynardOrantin Topological Recursion (EOTR) and the asymptotic solutions to differential equations constructed with the WKB method (named for its creators Wentzel, Kramers and Brillouin). Using the Airy spectral curve as an initial example, we propose a general...

Topological Recursion began its life as a series of recursive equations aimed at solving constraints which occur in matrix models of Quantum Field Theory. After its inception, Topological Recursion was given a more abstract formulation in terms of Quantum Airy Structures and has since been of...

This thesis is interested in the topological recursion first introduced in \cite{CEO} and generalized to algebraic curves in \cite{Eynard:2007,Eynard:2008}. A presentation of the Hermitian matrix model is given and includes a derivation of this topological recursion. The second part introduces a...

The topological recursion is a construction in algebraic geometry that takes in the data of a socalled spectral curve, $\mathcal{S}=\left(\Sigma,x,y\right)$ where $\Sigma$ is a Riemann surface and $x,y:\Sigma\to\mathbb{C}_\infty$ are meromorphic, and recursively constructs correlators which, in...

The first part of this thesis presents an exposition of some of the links between integrability, matrix models and Airy structures. We first introduce the notion of an integrable hierarchy and a tau function. We then probe tau functions further by considering matrix integrals. These are...

This thesis focuses on characterizing an optimal trading strategy for a large trader, who has to buy (or sell) a fixed large volume over a given time period. We propose a model in discrete time, based on VWAP (Volume Weighted Average Price). The objective is to minimize expected deviations...

This thesis concerns dynamical systems subject to small noise perturbations. Our purpose is to obtain a deep understanding of how small noise perturbations influence the original unperturbed dynamical system, especially over long but finite time intervals. We consider two special systems, the...

Hydrogen fuel cells convert the chemical energy of hydrogen directly into electricity, with the only byproducts being heat and water. The high cost of hydrogen fuel cells due to the expensive platinum catalyst is one of the limiting factors to their global commercialization. Improving fuelcell...

Translation operators on group von Neumann algebras and Banach algebras related to locally compact groups
DownloadFall 2010
Let $G$ be a locally compact group, $G^$ be the set of all extreme points of the set of normalized continuous positive definite functions of $G$ and $a(G)$ be the closed subalgebra generated by $G^$ in $B(G)$. When $G$ is abelian, $G^$ is the set of dirac measures of the dual group of $G$. The...

Cancer is one of the major causes of death in the world. In the field of Oncology, clinical trials form the crux of medical effort to find better treatment schedules. These trials are expensive, time consuming, and carry great risks for the patients involved. Mathematical models provide a...
