Physical Applications of Heat Kernels on Fractals

TYPETheor./Math. Physics Seminar
Speaker:Professor Gerald Dunne
Affiliation:University of Connecticut
Location:Lewiner Seminar Room (412)
Abstract:Recent mathematical results concerning spectral properties of
Laplacians on fractals are applied to physical problems such as quantum
transport and quantum statistical mechanics for particles on fractals. Of
particular interest are the roles of the spectral and Hausdorff dimensions
and characteristic log-periodic oscillations of certain physical
