Rendiconti dell'Istituto di Matematica dell'Università di Trieste: an International Journal of Mathematics vol.41 (2009)


Editorial policy The journal Rendiconti dell’Istituto di Matematica dell’università di Trieste publishes original articles in all areas of mathematics. Special regard is given to research papers, but attractive expository papers may also be considered for publication. The journal usually appears in one issue per year. Additional issues may however be published. In particular, the Managing Editors may consider the publication of supplementary volumes related to some special events, like conferences, workshops, and advanced schools. All submitted papers will be refereed. Manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that the work has not been published before and is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Our journal can be obtained by exchange agreements with other similar journals.

Instructions for Authors Authors are invited to submit their papers by e-mail directly to one of the Managing Editors in PDF format. All the correspondence regarding the submission and the editorial process of the paper are done by e-mail. Papers have to be written in one of the following languages: English, French, German, or Italian. Abstracts should not exceed ten printed lines, except for papers written in French, German, or Italian, for which an extended English summary is required. After acceptance, manuscripts have to be prepared in LaTeX using the style rendiconti.cls which can be downloaded from the web page. Any figure should be recorded in a single PDF, PS (PostScript), or EPS (Encapsulated PostScript) file.

    Variational Theory for Liouville Equations with Singularities
    (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2009)
    Malchiodi, Andrea
    In this note we consider a singular Liouville equation on compact surfaces, arising from the study of Chern-Simons vortices. Using improved versions of the Moser-Trudinger inequality and a min-max scheme, we prove existence of solutions in cases with lack of coercivity. Full details and further references can be found in the forthcoming paper [17].

    A Deformed Bargmann Transform by an SU(2) Matrix Parameter
    (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2009)
    Ghanmi, Allal
    Mouayn, Zouhaïr
    The Laguerre 2D polynomials depending on an arbitrary matrix Q in SU(2) as a fixed parameter are used to construct a set of coherent states. The corresponding coherent state transforms constitute a deformation by matrix Q of a generalized Bargmann transform.

    Invariants of Moduli Spaces and Modular Forms
    (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2009)
    Göttsche, Lothar
    Generating functions for invariants of moduli spaces in algebraic geometry of are often related to modular forms. In this paper we give an overview of many instances of this phenomenon and in some cases relate it to predictions from theoretical physics. In this paper we only consider moduli spaces of objects on surfaces. The examples include Euler numbers of moduli spaces of sheaves on surfaces, Donaldson invariants, and enumerative invariants of curves on surfaces.

    Period Two implies Chaos for a Class of ODEs: a Dynamical System Approach
    (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2009)
    Pireddu, Marina
    The aim of this note is to set in the field of dynamical systems a recent theorem by Obersnel and Omari in [19] about the presence of subharmonic solutions of all orders for a class of scalar time-periodic first order differential equations without uniqueness, provided a subharmonic solution (for instance, of order two) does exist. Indeed, making use of the Bebutov flow, we try to clarify in what sense the term “chaos” has to be understood and which dynamical features can be inferred for the system under analysis.

    A Connection between Viscous Profiles and Singular ODEs
    (EUT Edizioni Università di Trieste, 2009)
    Bianchini, Stefano
    Spinolo, Laura V.
    We deal with the viscous profiles for a class of mixed hyperbolic-parabolic systems in one space dimension. We focus, in particular, on the case of the compressible Navier Stokes equation in one space variable written in Eulerian coordinates. We describe the link between these profiles and a singular ordinary differential equation in the form$\frac{dV}{dt} = \frac{1}{\zeta (V)} F(V).$ Here $V \in \mathbb{R}^d$ and the function $F$ takes values into $\mathbb{R}^d$ and is smooth. The real valued function $\zeta $ is as well regular: the equation is singular in the sense that $\zeta (V)$ can attain the value $0$.
