Tensor Network / 2018

Understanding quantum many-body systems is probably the most  challenging problem in condensed matter physics. The standard approach to understand these systems is based on proposing simplified models that are believed to reproduce the relevant interactions responsible for the observed physics. As far as numerical simulation algorithms are concerned, Tensor Network methods have become increasingly popular in recent years to simulate strongly correlated systems. Describing this phenomena from a mathematical point of view requires the usage of secant varieties of Segre varieties and tensor decomposition techniques.

Groebner basis and zero-dimensional schemes / 2018

Let f_1, ..., f_m be polynomials in Q [x_1, ..., x_n] with only a finite number of zeros in common in C^n. Then the ideal I = (f_1, ... f_m) is zero-dimensional. How to use Groebner bases to calculate I's zeros?

Sui complessi lineari di piani sullo spazio a 5 dimensioni /

The title of this thesis is in italian since I propose to read a paper of Corrado Segre (1918) written in italian.
My proposal is to read this paper and translate it (or a part of it) into a more modern mathematical language.

Complexity of Matrix Multiplication / 2018

Strassen was convinced that it was not possible to improve the classical algorithm for the multiplication of matrices. In an attempt to prove this fact, he found a simpler algorithm for multiplying 2x2 matrices. This algorithm is shown to be the best possible one. For matrix nxn with n> 2 only bounds the complexity are known.

Mathematics and Phylogenetics / 2018

Given a group of species with a common ancestor, we are interested in reconstructing the phylogenetic tree from the species known to the common ancestor. To do this we need algebraic varieties called secant varieties of Segre varietis.

Multiplication of numbers and digital music / 2018

Fast Fourier Transform is the fastest way to multiply two numbers. It is used whenever multiplication of large numbers is needed. This happens in cryptography, in the separation of musical traces, in the reconstruction of images...
