ANALYSIS/MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS SEMINAR

Concentration phenomena for Laplacian eigenfunctions can be studied by obtaining estimates for their $L^{p}$ growth. By considering eigenfunctions as quasimodes (approximate eigenfunctions) within the semiclassical framework we can extend such estimates to a more general class of semiclassical operators. This talk will focus on $L^{p}$ estimates for quasimodes restricted to hypersurfaces and the links between such estimates and properties of classical flow.
