    • Abstract
      Wetting phenomena at small scales are an area where chemistry,
      physics, mathematics, and engineering intersect. In recent years,
      driven also by molecular dynamics, new concepts have been introduced
      to describe the statics and dynamics of wetting, allowing new
      insights into the old problems of surface forces. Among these
      problems, two prominent ones are an appropriate mathematical modeling
      of the moving contact line where liquid, solid, and surrounding vapor
      meet, and how such models influence the macroscopic properties of the
      flow. After a general framing -- the classical setting of droplets'
      statics and dynamics, diffuse and sharp interface models, classical
      and new descriptions of the contact line -- I shall review the PDE
      theory for one of such models -- the so-called thin-film equation --, mainly focusing on the two aforementioned problems and on some of the most interesting current challenges.

    • A prescribed anisotropic mean curvature equation modeling the corneal shape: a paradigm of nonlinear analysis
    • Tuesday, 2 July 2019 at 15:15
    • Aula seminari 3° piano
    • Abstract
      In this talk, we survey some recent results concerning the Dirichlet problem for the prescribed anisotropic mean curvature equation
      \begin{equation*}
      {\rm -div}\left({\nabla u}/{\sqrt{1 + |\nabla u|^2}}\right) = -au + {b}/{\sqrt{1 + |\nabla u|^2}},
      \end{equation*}
      in a bounded Lipschitz domain $\Omega \subset \RR^N$, with $a,b>0$ parameters.
      This equation appears in the description of the geometry of the human cornea, as well as in the modeling theory of capillarity phenomena for compressible fluids.

      In this talk, we show how various techniques of nonlinear functional analysis can successfully be applied to derive a complete picture of the solvability patterns of the problem.

    • Thursday, 11 July 2019 at 14:00
    • Aula consiglio VII piano, Edificio 14, Dipartimento di Matematica POLITECNICO DI MILANO
    • Abstract
      In this talk we will discuss preconditioning algorithms for monolithic schemes of coupled problems involving the coupling of porous and viscous flow as well as fluid-structure interaction and dimension reduction problems.
      We explore how fractional Laplacian solvers may be utilized to obtain parameter robust schemes. The schemes are discussed in the context of biomechanical modelling of the waste clearance processes in the brain that is believed to fail in various forms of dementia such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.

    • Kent - Andre  Mardal
      Kent-Andre Mardal is a Professor at the University of Oslo and an adjuct researcher at Simula Research Laboratory. His research focus is on computational methods for life-science applications, where focus areas are robust multi-physics algorithms, high-performance preconditioning techniques, generic scientific software components, the microcirculation and metabolism of the brain, the cause of dementia such as Alzheimer’s disease and normal pressure hydrocephalus, and multi-dimensional coupling problems. Mardal has made core contributions to the FEniCS software library, the operator preconditioning technique, demonstrated transitional flow at low Reynolds number in blood flow and made crucial observations concerning the g-lymphatic system potentially involved in Alzheimer´s disease development.

    • Dipartimento di Matematica - 7° piano, Politecnico di Milano
    • Abstract
      In this talk, I will discuss our recent advances in understanding phenotypic plasticity of cancer cells using a combination of experiments, analysis of big data and computational models of complex regulatory networks. Next, I will discuss our results on protein aggregation in neurodegenerative pathologies, such as Alzheimer's and Huntington's disease.

      In particular, I will report on the importance of protein clearance from the endoplasmic reticulum to drive protein aggregation and on our recent results on huntingtin heterogenous aggregation in which mutated forms of the protein are able to form oligomers with non-mutated forms.
