Professor Miguel Martín, from the Department of Mathematical Analysis at the University of Granada, welcomes postdoctoral candidates interested in applying for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) in 2020 at this University. Please note that applicants must comply with the Mobility Rule (more information: http://sl.ugr.es/0aNV).

Brief description of the institution:

The University of Granada (UGR), founded in 1531, is one of the largest and most important universities in Spain. The UGR has been awarded with the "Human Resources Excellence in Research (HRS4R)", which reflects the UGR’s commitment to continuously improve its human resource policies in line with the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers. The UGR is also a leading institution in research, located in the top 5/10 of Spanish universities by a variety of ranking criteria, such as national R&D projects, fellowships awarded, publications, or international funding.

UGR is one of the few Spanish Universities listed in the Shanghai Top 500 ranking (http://sl.ugr.es/0aw0). The Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) places the UGR in 268th position in the world and as the 4th highest ranked University in Spain, reaffirming its position as an institution at the forefront of national and international research. From the perspective of specialist areas in the ARWU rankings, the UGR is outstanding in Documentation (ranked in the 36th in the world) or Food science technology (ranked 37th in the world), Mathematics and Computer Science (ranked among the top 76-100 in the world).

The UGR has 4 researchers at the top of the Highly Cited Researchers (HCR) list in the Computer Science area. With regard to broader subject fields, the UGR is ranked in 45th position in the universities worldwide in the discipline of Engineering. It is also well recognized for its web presence (http://sl.ugr.es/0a6i) taking 36th place in the top 200 Universities in Europe. Internationally, we bet decidedly by our participation in the calls of the Framework Programme of the European Union. For the duration of the last two Framework Programmes, the UGR has obtained a total of 66 projects, with total funding of 18.02 million euros, and for H2020, 80 projects with total funding around 20.6 million euros.

Brief description of the Centre/Research Group

IEMath-GR is a mathematics research institute located in Granada (Spain). It was selected in November 2007 as one of the four physical locations of the Spanish Institute of Mathematics (IEMath), in a competitive public call, which also selected the Centre de Recerca Matemática (CRM) in Barcelona, the ICMAT in Madrid (ICMAT) and IEMath-Galicia. IEMath-GR is now part of the University of Granada as a local Research Institute. The Institute is an instrument for the mathematical community, in order to enhance and spread the knowledge in mathematics. To develop this task, the Institute receives visitor researchers in collaboration with local or national researchers, and hosts different kinds of math events: Conferences, Workshops, Seminars, Advanced Courses, etc.

Starting formally its activities in March 2013, more than 120 researchers have enrolled the institute since its inception, including internal and external members; a full list can be found at http://iemath.ugr.es/members/

The research developed in IEMath-GR is done along many different areas of Mathematics as Differential Geometry, PDEs, Functional Analysis, Statistic, Modelization, Geometric Analysis… The research proposed in the present project is set in the area of Functional Analysis, more concretely in the Geometry of Banach spaces in the frame of a research group formed by more than 10 active researchers in the field.

Project description

Title: “Geometric techniques in the study of operators on Banach spaces”

This project is mainly devoted to study operators between Banach spaces through geometric methods. Moreover, the project also deals with the study of geometric and algebraic properties of Banach spaces. We are focused on the following basic topics:

- Optimization of operators and functionals: operators attaining the norm, Bishop-Phelps-Bollobás property, compact operators attaining the norm, Bishop-Phelps-Bollobás modulus, proximinality and Read’s norms.

- Numerical index of operators and Daugavet like properties: numerical range with respect to an operator, numerical index of an operator, Daugavet centers, numerical index and second numerical index.

- Geometry of the unit ball of a Banach space: diameter two properties, Radon-Nikodým property, nice operators and spaces, slicely countably determined spaces, octahedrality.

- Lipschitz operators and functionals: isometric and isomorphic properties of spaces of Lipschitz functions on metric spaces and of Lipschitz-free spaces, Lipschitz operators and functionals attaining the norm, numerical range of Lipschitz operators, Lipschitz Spears and Lipschitz Daugavet centers.

More information about the current objectives and recent results can be found in the web page


On the other hand, the proposal is open to the study of any topic inside the geometry of Banach spaces which would be of common interest.
