Paper of Ian Morris on fractals to appear in AMS Transactions

The paper “On equality of Hausdorff and affinity dimensions, via self-affine measures on positive subsystems“, co-authored by Ian Morris and Pablo Shmerkin (Torcuato Di Tella University, Argentina, and former Lecturer at Surrey), was recently accepted for publication by the Transactions of the American Mathematical Society. In this article they establish a new method for obtaining […]


Kostianko-Zelik paper on inertial manifolds published in CPAA

The paper “Inertial manifolds for 1D reaction-diffusion-advection systems. Part I: Dirichlet and Neumann boundary conditions” co-authored by Anna Kostianko and Sergey Zelik, has been published in Communications in Pure and Applied Analysis.  The paper is the first part of their study of inertial manifolds for systems of reaction-diffusion-advection equations in one space dimension, and covers […]
