Introduction to equilibrium states of stochastic dynamical systems - Fernanda Cipriano

It is widely recognized that the equilibrium of dynamic real-world systems is essential for the maintenance of life on our planet, and that the equilibrium of the economy and financial systems is essential for ensuring better living conditions for all human beings. The study of equilibrium of real-world dynamical systems is a difficult task. One difficulty is related to the presence of randomness or uncertainty. From a mathematical point of view, relevant dynamical systems incorporating randomness or uncertainty can be described by solutions of stochastic differential equations. The main goal of this talk is to introduce the notion of an equilibrium state, or a stationary statistical solution, to these random dynamical systems. Starting from the concept of Gaussian measure, we define the Gaussian Wiener process, which allows the introduction of stochastic dynamical systems, described by solutions of stochastic differential equations. Special emphasis will be given to the Ornstein-Uhenbeck stochastic process, its associated semigroup, and the corresponding invariant measure.

Partial Isometries of Some Simple Connected Graphs - Tânia Paulista

According to the Vagner- Preston Theorem, every inverse semigroup is isomorphic to a subsemigroup of an appropriate symmetric inverse semigroup IX. Hence the study of subsemigroups of the symmetric inverse semigroup IX, for some set X, is of high importance. We focus essentially in two inverse semigroups: the inverse semigroup of partial isometries of the star graph Sn and the inverse semigroup of partial isometries of the cycle graph Cn.
