8.1 PhD thesis 1510
The aim of this work is to improve our description of global anomalies and the tools we have at our disposal for their computation. In particular, we focus on general fermionic quantum field theories with a global finite group symmetry G^f in 2-dimensions, with a special regard for the torus spacetime. The modular transformation properties of the family of partition functions with different backgrounds is determined by the ’t Hooft anomaly of G^f. For a general G^f, possibly non-abelian or tw...
Being able to successfully and adaptively interact with our environment often requires us to process and learn various forms of temporal regularities, involving different types of temporal features and structures. In many cases the presence of such regularities makes us experience a series of events as a temporal pattern. We often identify a series of events as a pattern based on its temporal properties, like the duration of the events, their order and temporal relationship. Temporal pattern...
Defining the functional properties of chronotopic maps in the human brain:the role of temporal context and stimulus features
How is millisecond unit of time represented in the human brain? Recent empirical evidences have shown that tuning and topography lay at the foundation of duration representation in the human brain. Duration-selective neuronal populations have been found in wide network of brain areas from occipital to frontal regions. These duration-selective neuronal populations are also topographically organized along the cortical surface as to form “chronomaps”. Through a series of high-spatial resolution ...
In this thesis we study a surprising connection relating the second Painlevé transcendent, anharmonic oscillators and degenerate orthogonal polynomials. This connection arose from the investigations into the similarity of two sets of points in the complex plane. On one side is the set of zeroes of the Vorob’evYablonskii polynomials, that is, the poles of rational solutions of the second Painlevé transcendent where u = u(t) is a complex function of the complex variable t. On the other side is ...
The first part of this thesis is devoted to the combinatorics, geometry, and effective computation of correlators of unitary invariant ensembles of random hermitian matrices with classical potentials. The main results are the subject of the publications [7, 8] with my supervisors T.~Grava and G.~Ruzza, and are summarized as follows. We provide generating functions for correlators of general Hermitian matrix models; formulae of this sort have already appeared in the literature [1, 5],...
