Selected Lecture notes

Here you can find a selection of handwritten notes I took for some of my classes. These notes are not complete and I sometimes paraphrased, shortened or changed parts of the notes. Personal comments are written in grey.

  • PDE 2 held by Nataša Pavlović in Spring 2017
  • PDE 1 held by Alexis Vasseur in Fall 2017 (still in progress)
  • Mathematical Physics held by Thomas Chen in Fall 2017 (still in progress)
  • Application of QFT to Geometry held by Andy Neitzke in Fall 2017 (still in progress)
  • Additional material

    Over the years, I gave seminar talks on several topics where I worked out the details of some papers. The notes and slides may contain minor mistakes but should provide the general idea.

  • Positive part of Onsager's conjecture based on this paper by Cheskidov, Constantin, Friedlander, Shvydkoy.
  • Derivation of the Quantum Boltzmann equation based on this paper by Erdős, Salmhofer, Yau.
  • Geometric topology based on this paper by Lewin.
  • Derivation of the NLS: This is a beamer presentation for my work on BEC.
