Abstract: The theory of elliptic differential-difference equations has many interesting
applications e.g. to
• the theory of sandwich shells and plates,
• the Kato problem concerning the analyticity of the square root of an analytic
function of dissipative operators,
• nonlocal boundary value problems arising in plasma theory,
• the theory of multidimensional diffusion processes,
• nonlinear optics, …
This theory is based on the properties of difference operators acting in Sobolev
spaces. Most important property of a regular difference operator:
It maps the Sobolev space of the first order with the homogeneous Dirichlet
boundary condition onto the subspace of the Sobolev space of the first order with
nonlocal boundary conditions continuously and bijectively. This result allows to
reduce boundary value problems for strongly elliptic differential-difference
equations to elliptic equations with nonlocal boundary conditions. Conversely, in
some cases nonlocal elliptic boundary value problems can be reduced to elliptic
differential-difference equations.


Teaching in Second Semester 2017

Prof. Dr. Elena Grachova from Saint-Petersburg State University gives a compact course of interdisciplinary lectures: “Noble metal complexes as „antenna“ for origanically modified polyoxovanadates”

August 23-25, 2017 in Institute of Inorganic Chemistry at RWTH Aachen University

A series of the scientific talks in the form of lectures or workshop will be given in Institute of Inorganic Chemistry at RWTH Aachen University, to introduce our German colleagues into the interdisciplinary aspects of coordination chemistry and luminescence of transition metal complexes. The lectures will be hosted by Kirill Monakhov, the head of the DFG's Emmy Noether research group. The lecture course will include the general description of luminescence in organometallic systems, principles of molecular emitters design and short communication about the main application field of luminescent compounds based on transition metal complexes. Workshop will be held from 23.08.2017 to 25.08.2017 (2 lectures per day).
