Hi, I am Davide Masoero
You are welcome to my Homepage

I work as a FCT Investigator at the mathematical department of Lisbon university, and I am a member of the Grupo de Fisica Matematica da Universidade de Lisboa. In 2010, I have obtained the PhD in Mathematical Physics at SISSA under the supervision of Boris Dubrovin, and recently I have obtained the (Italian) habilitation to associate professor in Mathematical Physics. Here are my contacts .

Of late I have been working on the ODE/IM correspondence, on Painleve equations and anharmonic oscillators, and on the semiclassical analysis of models of population dynamics. My latest findings are:
  1. ODE/IM. In a collaboration with Andrea Raimondo and Daniele Valeri, we have built solutions of the Bethe Ansatz equations from the opers described by Boris Feigin and Edward Frenkel. The results are contained in two papers published in Communications in Mathematical Physics (CMP).  The first paper (arXiv version) concerns the case of the Bethe Ansatz for simply-laced Lie algebras which corresponds to opers defined on untwisted affine Kac Moody algebras, the second paper (arXiv version)concerns the Bethe Ansatz for NON-simply-laced (ADE) Lie algebras corresponding to opers defined on twisted affine Kac Moody algebras.
  2. Painleve equations and anharmonic oscillators. In a recent collaboration with Pieter Roffelsen published on SIGMA, we studied the singularities distribution of rational solutions of the fourth Painleve equation (PIV), by means of the isomonodromic deformation method.  We showed that the singularities are described by an inverse monodromy problem for a quantum anharmonic oscillators of degree two, and classified them by means of the monodromy representation of a class of meromorphic functions introduced by Nevanlinna. Finally, we computed the asymptotic distribution of the singularities of rational solutions of Hermite type: roots condensate on a some curves in the complex plane and, for each curve the real part of the roots is distributed in accordance with the Wigner's semicircle law.
  3. In collaboration wtih Daniele De Martino, we solved a model describing the growth-distribution in colonies of E. Coli from their metabolism.  We retrieve two scaling laws relating the mean growth with the standard deviation and the time-response. In particular, we show that suboptimal growth-rates have faster response and therefore colonies with smaller mean growth rate have faster adaptation. Our findings are published in the paper Asymptotic analysis of noisy fitness maximization, applied to metabolism and growth JSTAT 2016 (arXiv version).

I am the principal investigator of the FCT exploratory project 'A mathematical framework for the ODE/IM correspondence'. Please contact me in case you are interested in proposing any acitivity related to the ODE/IM correspondence and my ongoing work.

With some PhD colleagues, we organized a conference in Lisbon few years ago:  Contemporary Ways of Integrability Lisbon, May 16-19, 2012
