Algebra Research Group (Group Theory)

Algebra is one of the fundamental areas of mathematics which studies, in a general sense, abstract structures arising as a generalization of ordinary arithmetic and its invariants. This area of pure mathematics also has numerous applications in other branches of science and technology such as physics, chemistry or computer science. The research interest of the group is mainly group theory and  focuses on studying the internal structure of groups from their factorizations, the lattice of its subgroups and arithmetical properties, both in finite groups and infinite groups with certain finiteness conditions, in many cases from the perspective of the theory of classes. In the applied counterpart, the group is interested in the interaction of groups and semigroups  with automata and formal languages.

Applications of Functional Analysis to Engineering

Our work consists of applying the techniques from functional analysis to the rigorous solution of mathematical problems in engineering, by modelling them through ordinary differential equations and partial differential equations, and by the analysis of their solutions and the mathematical properties they possess.

Applications of Topology and Analysis (APLANTOP)

We are concerned with specific problems on the relationship between topology and the functional analysis, for certain kinds of locally convex spaces, including spaces of Fréchet, their topological duals, spaces of continuous functions C(X) and the spaces of distributions and analytical functions. We study topological invariants, such as tightness, Lindelof, Souslin and Hewitt numbers with applications to the topological characterization of properties of concrete objects of functional analysis, to obtain new characterizations, applications and better understanding of certain properties. Combinative techniques of descriptive topology of sets as K-analiticity, analiticity, almost-Souslin, semicontinuity, etc with techniques of local convexity. This topics are in part developed in the monograph “Descriptive Topology in Selected Topics of Functional Analysis”, Developments in Mathematics 24, Springer 2011

Topological vector spaces.

Barrlledness and applications vector spaces with and without local convexity conditions and properties of strong and weak barrelledness. Countably additive vector measures, location properties and Banach spaces including spaces $L_p$ are also studied as well as the wavelets in solving differential models.

Integration of new technologies to the Mathematics education.

The different aspects that involve the use of new technologies, including the use of mathematical programs and educational platforms are studied.

Banach Spaces and Infinite-Dimensional Holomorphy

The research interest of the group is the geometry of Banach spaces and the infinite-dimensional complex analysis. In the first setting, we study differentiability of norms and renorming. In the second, we deal with properties of polynomials and multilinear mappings in Banach spaces.

Functional Analysis and Applications to Physics (FUNAPHY)

Funaphy is an interdisciplinary research group mainly devoted to the study of mathematical problems in the area of the functional analysis and its applications to other areas, both of theoretical and applied science, such as Classical and Quantum Mechanics and signal analysis in Acoustics. Our group members are leading experts in functional analysis, physics and topology. Nowadays, regarding the research in mathematics, our publications deal with classical and new problems of the general theory of Banach lattices, operator theory, vector measures and integration, and scattering theory.

Also applications of the so called non symmetric topology in the context of the functional analysis have been developed by the members of the group in recent years. Simultaneously, an applied project for the signal analysis of acoustic spectra that gives mathematical support to a research group in experimental physics of our university is being developed at the moment.

Hypercyclic Operators and Linear Chaos

Our main research area is the study of the chaotic dynamics of linear operators on infinite-dimensional spaces (Banach and Fréchet spaces). This is a topic which combines techniques of Dynamical Systems and operator theory. We are mainly concerned with the analysis of topological properties related to chaos, like the existence of dense orbits (hypercyclicity, within our framework), other stronger properties (mixing, weakly mixing, etc.), and general notions of irregularity for orbits (Li-Yorke chaos, distributional chaos,etc.). We also study notions from ergodic theory (given an infinite-dimensional linear dynamical system, the existence of invariant measures with certain additional properties, etc.) and their consequences in the frequently recurrent behaviour of dense orbits.

We are interested in discrete and continuous dynamical systems. In the latter case, we mainly concentrate our attention on continuous dynamical systems which come from solution semigroups of linear partial differential equations and of infinite systems of linear ordinary differential equations.

Interdisciplinary Modelling Group- InterTech

InterTech (www.intertech.upv.es) activities are based on collaborations from researchers of different areas aiming at the creation of new ideas of scientific and technological value. The interdisciplinary nature of the group allows to cover various fields like non-linear optics, in collaboration with the optics department of the UVEG; biotechnology, with researchers form Universidad Católica de Valencia; or in the advanced modelling in energetic engineering. As a result of the research activities of the group an spin off, Energesis Ingeniería  (www.energesis.es), was created fulfilling one of the main goals of InterTech members of transferring the scientific findings to society.

Methods of Functional Analysis for Mathematical Analysis

Our main research area is the study of methods of functional analysis and their applications to several areas of mathematical analysis, like complex analysis, operator theory, Fourier analysis, dynamical systems and linear partial differential operators.

More precisely, we work in the following problems:

(1) Spaces of analytic functions and operators between them: weighted spaces of analytic functions, composition, superposition and Toeplitz operators, operators on spaces of real analytic functions.
(2) Localization operators and time-frequency analysis: Stockwell transform, uncertainty principles, weighted modulation spaces, frames for Fréchet spaces.
(3) Linear partial differential and convolution operators on spaces of ultradifferentiable functions and ultradistributions: solution operators, hypoellipticity, iterates of the operator, quasianalytic classes, extension of smooth functions, and
(4) Abstract functional analytic developments: splitting of short exact sequences, mean ergodic operators, topological algebras and linear dynamical systems.

Singularity Theory and its Applications

The research topics of our group focus on the study of the singularities of real and complex maps, both from the algebraic and the differential point of view. Therefore, our research topics include current problems of algebraic geometry, commutative algebra and differential geometry. We also consider the applications of singularity theory to other fields, like the theory of error correcting codes.

Topology and its Applications

Our research group is mainly interested in several branches of general topology (asymmetric topology, fixed point theory, fuzzy distances, topological algebra, hyperspaces, etc.) as well as its applications to other fields: domain theory, construction of quantitative models in theoretical computer science, image processing, approximation of functions, applications of denotational semantics to the complexity analysis of algorithms, etc.
