# Research Groups

Main research topics of the group refer to: variational methods for image segmentation and inpainting; shape optimization: geometric-functional inequalities, optimal partitions; free discontinuity problems; noncoercive minimum problems in continuum mechanics; free boundary problems associated to variational inequalities; convex analysis and control problems. Spectral analysis of scalar operators and functional calculus based on holomorphic functions theory are cornerstones of Functional Analysis with many applications to the theory of differential equations. Since 2006 a new spectral theory was introduced (based on the notion of S-spectrum) for vector-valued operators, providing a hyper-holomorphic vector functional calculus that allows to introduce a new class of fractional diffusion problems.

Analysis and modeling of random phenomena in physics, biology, finance, econometry. Stochastic optimization, filtering, control, backward stochastic equations. Bayesian inference. Quantum probability and information: quantum open systems, quantum optics applications, quantum uncertainty.

Applications of models based on stochastic processes:

- Optimal control in finite and infinite dimensions of Markovian and non-Markovian processes, of diffusive or pure-jump types; quadratic linear control. Applications to financial modeling.
- Pricing and hedging of financial derivatives, in particular traded on Energy Markets.
- Study of stochastic models of information/epidemic diffusion. This has a natural application, for instance, in the development of strategies to curb epidemics (vaccinations) or to favour the rapid dissemination of information.
- Construction and statistical analysis of Cox-Markov models, construction of Bayesian semi-Markov processes, Bayesian survival analysis with applications to biological and seismic data. Bayesian econometric models of the regional population. Long experience in developing the theory and in applications of dynamical equations for quantum open systems and generators of quantum dynamical semigroups, the Schrödinger stochastic equation, quantum stochastic differential equations. Development of entropy techniques for information and uncertainty analysis in quantum systems that finds its natural application in the emerging field of quantum technologies.

The group activity is focused on statistical models and methods applied to industrial problems or arising in biomedical sciences, geosciences and social sciences. Beside an intense theoretical research, also along the Bayesian approach, applied research is pursued within the MOX laboratory (http://mox.polimi.it) in the area Statistics@MOX (https://statistics.mox.polimi.it). Specific domains are those related to the analysis of complex and high dimensional data and to health analytics. The research focus in Bayesian statistics is on modelling and computational aspects, in particular on __mixture models for clustering__

Big data, statistical learning, functional data analysis, Bayesian statistics, data mining, generalized linear models with mixed effects, urn models for adaptive design of experiment, geostatistics, health care management.
