Sharp Threshold of the Gross-Pitaevskii Equation with Trapped Dipolar Quantum Gases
In this paper, we consider the Gross-Pitaevskii equation for the trapped dipolar quantum gases. We obtain the sharp criterion for the global existence and finite time blow up in the unstable regime by constructing a variational problem and the so-called invariant manifold of the evolution flow.

Keywords:Gross-Pitaevskii equation, sharp threshold, global existence, blow up

Semiclassical Limits of Eigenfunctions on Flat $n$-Dimensional Tori
We provide a proof of a conjecture by Jakobson, Nadirashvili, and Toth stating that on an $n$-dimensional flat torus $\mathbb T^{n}$, and the Fourier transform of squares of the eigenfunctions $|\varphi_\lambda|^2$ of the Laplacian have uniform $l^n$ bounds that do not depend on the eigenvalue $\lambda$. The proof is a generalization of an argument by Jakobson, et al. for the lower dimensional cases. These results imply uniform bounds for semiclassical limits on $\mathbb T^{n+2}$. We also prove a geometric lemma that bounds the number of codimension-one simplices satisfying a certain restriction on an $n$-dimensional sphere $S^n(\lambda)$ of radius $\sqrt{\lambda}$, and we use it in the proof.

Keywords:semiclassical limits, eigenfunctions of Laplacian on a torus, quantum limits

von Renesse, Max-K.
An Optimal Transport View of Schrödinger's Equation
We show that the Schrödinger equation is a lift of Newton's third law of motion $\nabla^\mathcal W_{\dot \mu} \dot \mu = -\nabla^\mathcal W F(\mu)$ on the space of probability measures, where derivatives are taken with respect to the Wasserstein Riemannian metric. Here the potential $\mu \to F(\mu)$ is the sum of the total classical potential energy $\langle V,\mu\rangle$ of the extended system and its Fisher information $ \frac {\hbar^2} 8 \int |\nabla \ln \mu |^2 \,d\mu$. The precise relation is established via a well-known (Madelung) transform which is shown to be a symplectic submersion of the standard symplectic structure of complex valued functions into the canonical symplectic space over the Wasserstein space. All computations are conducted in the framework of Otto's formal Riemannian calculus for optimal transportation of probability measures.

Keywords:Schrödinger equation, optimal transport, Newton's law, symplectic submersion

On the Negative Index Theorem for the Linearized Non-Linear Schrödinger Problem
A new and elementary proof is given of the recent result of Cuccagna, Pelinovsky, and Vougalter based on the variational principle for the quadratic form of a self-adjoint operator. It is the negative index theorem for a linearized NLS operator in three dimensions.

Quantum Multiple Construction of Subfactors
We construct the quantum $s$-tuple subfactors for an AFD II$_{1}$ subfactor with finite index and depth, for an arbitrary natural number $s$. This is a generalization of the quantum multiple subfactors by Erlijman and Wenzl, which in turn generalized the quantum double construction of a subfactor for the case that the original subfactor gives rise to a braided tensor category. In this paper we give a multiple construction for a subfactor with a weaker condition than braidedness of the bimodule system.

Quantum Ergodicity of Boundary Values of Eigenfunctions: A Control Theory Approach
Consider $M$, a bounded domain in ${\mathbb R}^d$, which is a Riemanian manifold with piecewise smooth boundary and suppose that the billiard associated to the geodesic flow reflecting on the boundary according to the laws of geometric optics is ergodic. We prove that the boundary value of the eigenfunctions of the Laplace operator with reasonable boundary conditions are asymptotically equidistributed in the boundary, extending previous results by G\'erard and Leichtnam as well as Hassell and Zelditch, obtained under the additional assumption of the convexity of~$M$.

Postcards from the Edge, or Snapshots of the Theory of Generalised Moonshine
We begin by reviewing Monstrous Moonshine. The impact of Moonshine on algebra has been profound, but so far it has had little to teach number theory. We introduce (using `postcards') a much larger context in which Monstrous Moonshine naturally sits. This context suggests Moonshine should indeed have consequences for number theory. We provide some humble examples of this: new generalisations of Gauss sums and quadratic reciprocity.

On Quantizing Nilpotent and Solvable Basic Algebras
We prove an algebraic ``no-go theorem'' to the effect that a nontrivial \pa\ cannot be realized as an associative algebra with the commu\-ta\-tor bracket. Using it, we show that there is an obstruction to quantizing the \pa\ of polynomials generated by a nilpotent \ba\ on a \sm. This result generalizes \gr 's famous theorem on the impossibility of quantizing the Poisson algebra of polynomials on $\r^{2n}$. Finally, we explicitly construct a polynomial quantization of a \sm\ with a solvable \ba, thereby showing that the obstruction in the nilpotent case does not extend to the solvable case.
