Norm Attaining Operators and BPB Property on Banach Spaces

School
MATHEMATICS

We study the Bishop-Phelps-Bollobas property for operators and Bishop-Phelps-Bollobas property for numerical radius of operators. Firstly sufficient conditions are given for generalized direct sums of Banach spaces with respect to a uniformly monotone Banach sequence lattice to have the approximate hyperplane series property. This result implies that Bishop-Phelps-Bollobas theorem holds for operators from $l_1$ into such direct sums of Banach spaces. We also show that the direct sum of two spaces with the approximate hyperplane series property has such property whenever the norm of the directed sum is absolute. Secondly we introduce the n ...

A Molecular Dynamics Study on the Role of Glycosylation in Developing Anti-cancer Therapeutics

The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a tyrosine kinase protein, overexpressed in several cancers. The extracellular domain of EGFR is known to be heavily glycosylated. Growth factor (mostly epidermal growth factor or EGF) binding activates EGFR. This occurs by inducing the transition from the autoinhibited tethered conformation to an extended conformation of the monomeric form of EGFR and by stabilizing the flexible preformed dimer. Activated EGFR adopts a back-to-back dimeric conformation after binding of another homolog ...

Hamiltonian structure of Chern-Simons-like theories

School
PARTICLES AND ACCELERATORS

Considering Chern-Simons like gravity theories in three dimensions as first order systems, we analyze the Hamiltonian structure of three theories TMG, NMG and ZDG. We show that these systems demonstrate a new feature of the constrained systems in which a new kind of constraints emerge due to factorization of determinant of the matrix of Poisson brackets of constraints. We find the desired number of degrees of freedom as well as the generating functional of local Lorentz transformations and diffeomorphism through canonical structure of the system. We also compare the Hamiltonian structure of linearized version of the considered models with the ...
