New challenges for spectral theory:
geometry, advanced materials and complex fields


The ultimate goal of the project is to develop unconventional tools in spectral theory in order to tackle various newly born, or more classical but recently revived, open problems in mathematics and physics. Among the variety of problems, I intend to particularly consider hot open questions in: spectral geometry of optimal shapes and eigenfunction properties; mathematical models of modern nanostructures, graphene and metamaterials; new concepts in quantum mechanics with non-self-adjoint operators, Schrödinger and Dirac operators with complex potentials, damped wave systems, non-standard stochastic processes and asymptotic distribution of eigenvalues of structured matrices. These apparently unrelated problems are in fact interlinked and a cross-fertilisation of ideas and techniques will constitute an important part of the project. As examples of the synergy, I propose to develop the method of multipliers to become a standard tool in spectral theory of differential operators with complex coefficients and explain the cloaking effect in metamaterials by operator-theoretic methods.
