An additive subfamily of enlargements of a maximally monotone Operator

We introduce a subfamily of additive enlargements of a maximally monotone operator $T$. Our definition is inspired by the seminal work of Fitzpatrick presented in 1988. These enlargements are a subfamily of the family of enlargements introduced by Svaiter in 2000. For the case $T = \partial f$, we prove that some members of the subfamily are smaller than the $\varepsilon$-subdifferential enlargement. For this choice of $T$, we can construct a specific enlargement which coincides with the$\varepsilon$-subdifferential. Since these enlargements are all additive, they can be seen as structurally closer to the $\varepsilon$-subdifferential enlargement.

Joint work with Juan Enrique Martínez-Legaz (Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona), Mahboubeh Rezaei (University of Isfahan, Iran), and Michel Théra (University of Limoges).

Arithmetic Applications of Hankel Determinants

In this talk I will present the main results of my PhD thesis (by the same name), which focuses on the application of matrix determinants as a means of producing number-theoretic results.

Motivated by an investigation of properties of the Riemann zeta function, we examine the growth rate of certain determinants of zeta values. We begin with a generalisation of determinants based on the Hurwitz zeta function, where we describe the arithmetic properties of its denominator and establish an asymptotic bound. We later employ a determinant identity to bound the growth of positive Hankel determinants. Noting the positivity of determinants of Dirichlet series allows us to prove specific bounds on determinants of zeta values in particular, and of Dirichlet series in general. Our results are shown to be the best that can be obtained from our method of bounding, and we conjecture a slight improvement could be obtained from an adjustment to our specific approach.

Within the course of this investigation we also consider possible geometric properties which are necessary for the positivity of Hankel determinants, and we examine the role of Hankel determinants in irrationality proofs via their connection with Padé approximation.
