Infinite Particle Systems: Complex Systems III (June 2007, Kazimierz Dolny, Poland)
In the years 2002-2005, a group of German and Polish mathematicians worked under a DFG research project No 436 POL 113/98/0-1 entitled "Methods of stochastic analysis in the theory of collective phenomena: Gibbs states and statistical hydrodynamics". The results of their study were summarized at the German-Polish conference, which took place in Poland in October 2005. The venue of the conference was Kazimierz Dolny upon Vistula - a lovely town and a popular place for various cultural, scientific, and even political events of an international significance. The conference was also attended by scientists from France, Italy, Portugal, UK, Ukraine, and USA, which predetermined its international character. Since that time, the conference, entitled "Infinite Particle Systems: Complex Systems" has become an annual international event, attended by leading scientists from Germany, Poland and many other countries. The present volume of the "Condensed Matter Physics" contains proceedings of the conference "Infinite Particle Systems: Complex Systems III", which took place in June 2007.

We apply the flow equation method to the study of the fermion systems with pairing interactions which lead to the BCS instability signalled by the appearance of the off-diagonal order parameter. For this purpose we rederive the continuous Bogoliubov transformation in a fashion of renormalization group procedure where the low and high energy sectors are treated subsequently. We further generalize this procedure to the case of fermions interacting with the discrete boson mode. Andreev-type interactions are responsible for developing a gap in the excitation spectrum. However, the long-range coherence is destroyed due to strong quantum fluctuations.

We consider a simple model of discrete-time random walk on Ζν, ν=1,2,... in a random environment independent in space and with Markov evolution in time. We focus on the application of methods based on the properties of the transfer matrix and on spectral analysis. In section 2 we give a new simple proof of the existence of invariant subspaces, with an explicit condition on the parameters. The remaining part is devoted to a review of the results obtained so far for the quenched random walk and the environment from the point of view of the random walk, with a brief discussion of the methods.

We deal with the two following classes of equilibrium stochastic dynamics of infinite particle systems in continuum: hopping particles (also called Kawasaki dynamics), i.e., a dynamics where each particle randomly hops over the space, and birth-and-death process in continuum (or Glauber dynamics), i.e., a dynamics where there is no motion of particles, but rather particles die, or are born at random. We prove that a wide class of Glauber dynamics can be derived as a scaling limit of Kawasaki dynamics. More precisely, we prove the convergence of respective generators on a set of cylinder functions, in the L2-norm with respect to the invariant measure of the processes. The latter measure is supposed to be a Gibbs measure corresponding to a potential of pair interaction, in the low activity-high temperature regime. Our result generalizes that of [Random. Oper. Stoch. Equa., 2007, 15, 105], which was proved for a special Glauber (Kawasaki, respectively) dynamics.

Harmonic analysis on configuration spaces is used in order to extend explicit expressions for the images of creation, annihilation, and second quantization operators in L2-spaces with respect to Poisson point processes to a set of functions larger than the space obtained by directly using chaos expansion. This permits, in particular, to derive an explicit expression for the generator of the second quantization of a sub-Markovian contraction semigroup on a set of functions which forms a core of the generator.

The distribution μ of a Poisson cluster process in Χ=Rd (with n-point clusters) is studied via the projection of an auxiliary Poisson measure in the space of configurations in Χn, with the intensity measure being the convolution of the background intensity (of cluster centres) with the probability distribution of a generic cluster. We show that μ is quasi-invariant with respect to the group of compactly supported diffeomorphisms of Χ, and prove an integration by parts formula for μ. The corresponding equilibrium stochastic dynamics is then constructed using the method of Dirichlet forms.
Invariance principle for diffusions in random environment

Condensed Matter Physics, 2008, vol. 11, No. 2(54), p. 275, English
We will show an invariance principle for the diffusive motion of a particle interacting with a random frozen configuration of infinitely many other particles in Rd. The interaction is described by a symmetric, translation invariant pair potential with repulsion at zero distance and proper decay at infinity.

We present an application of birth-and-death processes on configuration spaces to a generalized mutation-selection balance model. The model describes the aging of population as a process of accumulation of mutations in a genotype. A rigorous treatment demands that mutations correspond to points in abstract spaces. Our model describes an infinite-population, infinite-sites model in continuum. The dynamical equation which describes the system, is of Kimura-Maruyama type. The problem can be posed in terms of evolution of states (differential equation) or, equivalently, represented in terms of Feynman-Kac formula. The questions of interest are the existence of a solution, its asymptotic behavior, and properties of the limiting state. In the non-epistatic case the problem was posed and solved in [Steinsaltz D., Evans S.N., Wachter K.W., Adv. Appl. Math., 2005, 35(1)]. In our model we consider a topological space X as the space of positions of mutations and the influence of an epistatic potential on these mutations.

We give in the paper a brief overview of how the Gibbs fields and related dynamics approaches are applied in image processing. We discuss classical pixel-wise models as well as more recent spatial point process models in the framework of the Gibbs fields approach. We present a new multi-object adapted algorithm for object detection based on a spatial birth-and-death process and a discrete time approximation of this process.

We analyze the dual graph representation of urban textures by the methods of complex network theory and spectral graph theory. We present the empirical diagrams of distributions of the nearest and far-away neighbors in the several European compact urban patterns and the spectra of normalized Laplace operator defined on their dual graphs.
Modelling complex networks by random hierarchical graphs

Numerous complex networks contain special patterns, called network motifs. These are specific subgraphs, which occur oftener than in randomized networks of Erdős-Rényi type. We choose one of them, the triangle, and build a family of random hierarchical graphs, being Sierpiński gasket-based graphs with random "decorations". We calculate the important characteristics of these graphs - average degree, average shortest path length, small-world graph family characteristics. They depend on probability of decorations. We analyze the Ising model on our graphs and describe its critical properties using a renormalization-group technique.

The paper is devoted to computer implementation of some graph based stream ciphers. We compare the time performance of this new algorithm with fast, but no very secure RC4, and with DES. It turns out that some of new algorithms are faster than RC4. They satisfy the Madryga requirements, which is unusual for stream ciphers (like RC4). The software package with new encryption algorithms is ready for the demonstration.

Natural iterative methods converge to the exact solution of a differential-functional von Foerster-type equation which describes a single population dependent on its past time and state densities as well as on its total size. On the lateral boundary we impose a renewal condition.

We present almost sure central limit theorems for stochastic processes whose time parameter ranges over the d-dimensional unit cube. Our purpose here is to generalize the classic functional central limit theorem of Prokhorov (1956) for such processes. We prove multidimensional analogues of Glivenko-Cantelli type theorems.

Let Χ be an algebraic curve of genus g ≥ 2 defined over a field Fq of characteristic p > 0. From Χ, under certain conditions, we can construct an algebraic geometry code C. If the code C is self-orthogonal under the symplectic product then we can construct a quantum code Q, called a QAG-code. In this paper we study the construction of such codes from curves with automorphisms and the relation between the automorphism group of the curve Χ and the codes C and Q.
