One of the overarching goal in our lab is to understand cortical plasticity in adult circuits.

Seminar | June 14 | 4:10-5 p.m. | 740 Evans Hall

We study weighted resolvent bounds for semiclassical Schrödinger operators. When the potential function is Lipschitz with long range decay, the resolvent norm grows exponentially in the inverse semiclassical parameter $h$. When the potential belongs to $L^\infty $ and has compact support, the resolvent norm grows exponentially in $h^{-4/3}\log (h^{-1})$. This extends the works of Burq,...   More >
