The log-Sobolev inequality for unbounded spin systems
LSK 200
Fri 16 Jan 2015, 3:00pm-4:00pm

Abstract

The log-Sobolev inequality (LSI) is a very useful tool for analyzing high-dimensional situations. For example, the LSI can be used for deriving hydrodynamic limits, for estimating the error in stochastic homogenization, for deducing upper bounds on the mixing times of Markov chains, and even in the proof of the Poincaré conjecture by Perelman. For most applications, it is crucial that the constant in the LSI is uniform in the size of the underlying system. In this talk, we discuss when to expect a uniform LSI  in the setting of unbounded spin systems. We will also explain a connection to the KLS conjecture.

Abstract

Adhesive Dynamics is a method to simulate the dynamics of cell adhesion to surfaces. Adhesion receptors are modeled as reactive mechanical entities with adhesive tips, and the formation and breakage of adhesion molecules with cognate ligands is simulated using random number sampling. Once the bonds form, the contact points they make with surfaces are tracked, and a force balance is used to calculate the motion of the cell. Specific rheological laws relate stress (or strain) to bond failure rates, and the parameters of these laws dictate the quantitative sensitivity of adhesion molecules to force, and ultimately affect the dynamics of cell adhesion as a whole. We summarize major findings of cell adhesion that have been enabled by Adhesive Dynamics - the development of state diagrams of adhesion, that link distinct states of adhesion to molecular identity, such as leukocyte rolling; specification of what is required for firm arrest of a leukocyte; a description of the shear threshold effect in which adhesion increases with shear rate; and understanding how two molecules can act in synergy to secure adhesion that cannot be secured by either molecule alone. Finally, we show how signal transduction networks can be integrated within adhesive dynamics to understand how cell activation can lead to changes in adhesion and arrest, and use predictions to understand how cells might behave when molecular components are altered or eliminated in knock-out mice, or in various diseases due to molecular defects.
