ANISOTROPIC HYPOELLIPTIC ESTIMATES FOR LANDAUTYPE OPERATORS
"... Abstract. We establish global hypoelliptic estimates for linear Landautype operators. Linear Landautype equations are a class of inhomogeneous kinetic equations with anisotropic diffusion whose study is motivated by the linearization of the Landau equation near the Maxwellian distribution.

Abstract. We establish global hypoelliptic estimates for linear Landautype operators. Linear Landautype equations are a class of inhomogeneous kinetic equations with anisotropic diffusion whose study is motivated by the linearization of the Landau equation near the Maxwellian distribution. By introducing a microlocal method by multiplier which can be adapted to various hypoelliptic kinetic equations, we establish for linear Landautype operators optimal global hypoelliptic estimates with loss of 4/3 derivatives in a Sobolev scale which is exactly related to the anisotropy of the diffusion. 1.

Abstract. We study the problem of convergence to equilibrium for evolution equations associated to general quadratic operators. Quadratic operators are nonselfadjoint differential operators with complexvalued quadratic symbols. Under appropriate assumptions, a complete description of the spectrum of such operators is given and the exponential return to equilibrium with sharp estimates on the rate of convergence is proven. Some applications to the study of chains of oscillators and the generalized Langevin equation are given. 1.
On a Linear Stochastic Wave Equation Modeling Heat Flow
"... Abstract. We consider a stochastic KleinGordon wave equation modeling heat flow in a linear field that is coupled to thermal reservoirs at different temperatures. We discuss, in a perturbative context, the approach to a stationary, nonequilibrium state, and show that the state is supported on fiel ..."

Abstract. We consider a stochastic KleinGordon wave equation modeling heat flow in a linear field that is coupled to thermal reservoirs at different temperatures. We discuss, in a perturbative context, the approach to a stationary, nonequilibrium state, and show that the state is supported on field configurations which are Hölder continuous, with any exponent less than 1/2. We determine the heat flux to lowest order in perturbation theory. 1.

We consider the nonlinear VPFP system with a coulombian repulsive interaction potential and a generic confining potential in space dimension d ≥ 3. Using spectral and kinetic methods we prove the existence and uniqueness of a mild solution with bounds uniform in time in weighted spaces, and for small total charge we find an explicit exponential rate of convergence toward the equilibrium in terms of the Witten Laplacian associated to the linear equation. Résumé: On considère le système de VlasovPoissonFokkerPlanck avec un potentiel Coulombien répulsif et un potentiel confinant générique en dimension d ≥ 3. Avec des méthodes spectrales et cinétiques on prouve l’existence et l’unicité d’une solution douce dans des espaces à poids, bornée uniformément en temps, et pour petite charge totale on trouve un taux de retour exponentiel explicite vers l’équilibre en fonction du Laplacien de Witten associé à l’équation linéaire.

Abstract. The spectra of the second quantization and the symmetric second quantization of a strict Hilbert space contraction are computed explicitly and shown to coincide. As an application, we compute the spectrum of the nonsymmetric OrnsteinUhlenbeck operator L associated with the infinitedimensional Langevin equation dU(t) = AU(t) dt + dW(t) where A is the generator of a strongly continuous semigroup on a Banach space E and W is a cylindrical Wiener process in E. Assuming the existence of an invariant measure µ for L, under suitable assumptions on A we show that the spectrum of L in the space L p (E, µ) (1 < p < ∞) is given by { ∑n σ(L) = j=1 kjzj: kj ∈ N, zj ∈ σ(Aµ); j = 1,..., n; n ≥ 1, where Aµ is the generator of a Hilbert space contraction semigroup canonically associated with A and µ. We prove that the assumptions on A are always satisfied in the strong Feller case and in the finitedimensional case. In the latter case we recover the recent MetafunePallaraPriola formula for σ(L). 1.
