Solar flares are explosions on the Sun. They happen when energy stored in magnetic fields around solar active regions (ARs) is suddenly released. Solar flares and accompanied coronal mass ejections are sources of space weather, which negatively affects a variety of technologies at or near Earth, ranging from blocking highfrequency radio waves used for radio communication to degrading power grid operations. Monitoring and providing early and accurate prediction of solar flares is therefore crucial for preparedness and disaster risk management. In this article, we present a transformerbased framework, named SolarFlareNet, for predicting whether an AR would produce a

Abstract p and a homogeneous system ofm linear equations for$$a_{j,1}x_1+\dots +a_{j,k}x_k=0$$ ${a}_{j,1}{x}_{1}+\cdots +{a}_{j,k}{x}_{k}=0$ with coefficients$$j=1,\dots ,m$$ $j=1,\cdots ,m$ . Suppose that$$a_{j,i}\in \mathbb {F}_p$$ ${a}_{j,i}\in {F}_{p}$ , that$$k\ge 3m$$ $k\ge 3m$ for$$a_{j,1}+\dots +a_{j,k}=0$$ ${a}_{j,1}+\cdots +{a}_{j,k}=0$ and that every$$j=1,\dots ,m$$ $j=1,\cdots ,m$ minor of the$$m\times m$$ $m\times m$ matrix$$m\times k$$ $m\times k$ is nonsingular. Then we prove that for any (large)$$(a_{j,i})_{j,i}$$ ${\left({a}_{j,i}\right)}_{j,i}$n , any subset of size$$A\subseteq \mathbb {F}_p^n$$ $A\subseteq {F}_{p}^{n}$ contains a solution$$A> C\cdot \Gamma ^n$$ $\leftA\right>C\xb7{\Gamma}^{n}$ to the given system of equations such that the vectors$$(x_1,\dots ,x_k)\in A^k$$ $({x}_{1},\cdots ,{x}_{k})\in {A}^{k}$ are all distinct. Here,$$x_1,\dots ,x_k\in A$$ ${x}_{1},\cdots ,{x}_{k}\in A$C and are constants only depending on$$\Gamma $$ $\Gamma $p ,m andk such that . The crucial point here is the condition for the vectors$$\Gamma in the solution$$x_1,\dots ,x_k$$ ${x}_{1},\cdots ,{x}_{k}$ to be distinct. If we relax this condition and only demand that$$(x_1,\dots ,x_k)\in A^k$$ $({x}_{1},\cdots ,{x}_{k})\in {A}^{k}$ are not all equal, then the statement would follow easily from Tao’s slice rank polynomial method. However, handling the distinctness condition is much harder, and requires a new approach. While all previous combinatorial applications of the slice rank polynomial method have relied on the slice rank of diagonal tensors, we use a slice rank argument for a nondiagonal tensor in combination with combinatorial and probabilistic arguments.$$x_1,\dots ,x_k$$ ${x}_{1},\cdots ,{x}_{k}$ 
Abstract Solar energetic particles (SEPs) are an essential source of space radiation, and are hazardous for humans in space, spacecraft, and technology in general. In this paper, we propose a deeplearning method, specifically a bidirectional long shortterm memory (biLSTM) network, to predict if an active region (AR) would produce an SEP event given that (i) the AR will produce an M or Xclass flare and a coronal mass ejection (CME) associated with the flare, or (ii) the AR will produce an M or Xclass flare regardless of whether or not the flare is associated with a CME. The data samples used in this study are collected from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite's Xray flare catalogs provided by the National Centers for Environmental Information. We select M and Xclass flares with identified ARs in the catalogs for the period between 2010 and 2021, and find the associations of flares, CMEs, and SEPs in the Space Weather Database of Notifications, Knowledge, Information during the same period. Each data sample contains physical parameters collected from the Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager on board the Solar Dynamics Observatory. Experimental results based on different performance metrics demonstrate that the proposed biLSTM network is better than related machinelearning algorithms for the two SEP prediction tasks studied here. We also discuss extensions of our approach for probabilistic forecasting and calibration with empirical evaluation.

Abstract Based on the recent development of the framework of Volterra rough paths (Harang and Tindel in Stoch Process Appl 142:34–78, 2021), we consider here the probabilistic construction of the Volterra rough path associated to the fractional Brownian motion with
and for the standard Brownian motion. The Volterra kernel$$H>\frac{1}{2}$$ $H>\frac{1}{2}$k (t ,s ) is allowed to be singular, and behaving similar to for some$$ts^{\gamma }$$ ${ts}^{\gamma}$ . The construction is done in both the Stratonovich and Itô senses. It is based on a modified Garsia–Rodemich–Romsey lemma which is of interest in its own right, as well as tools from Malliavin calculus. A discussion of challenges and potential extensions is provided.$$\gamma \ge 0$$ $\gamma \ge 0$ 
Abstract We performed a differential emission measure (DEM) analysis of candleflameshaped flares observed with the
Atmospheric Imaging Assembly onboard theSolar Dynamic Observatory . The DEM profile of flaring plasmas generally exhibits a double peak distribution in temperature, with a cold component around and a hot component around$\log T\approx6.2$ $logT\approx 6.2$ . Attributing the cold component mainly to the coronal background, we propose a mean temperature weighted by the hot DEM component as a better representation of flaring plasma than the conventionally defined mean temperature, which is weighted by the whole DEM profile. Based on this corrected mean temperature, the majority of the flares studied, including a confined flare with a double candleflame shape sharing the same cuspshaped structure, resemble the famous Tsuneta flare in temperature distribution,$\log T\approx7.0$ $logT\approx 7.0$i.e. , the cuspshaped structure has systematically higher temperatures than the rounded flare arcade underneath. However, the M7.7 flare on 19 July 2012 poses a very intriguing violation of this paradigm: the temperature decreases with altitude from the tip of the cusp toward the top of the arcade; the hottest region is slightly above the Xray looptop source that is cospatial with the emissionmeasureenhanced region at the top of the arcade. This signifies that a different heating mechanism from the slowmode shocks attached to the reconnection site operates in the cusp region during the flare decay phase. 
Abstract We study thin films with residual strain by analyzing the
limit of nonEuclidean elastic energy functionals as the material’s thickness tends to 0. We begin by extending prior results (Bhattacharya et al. in Arch Ration Mech Anal 228: 143–181, 2016); (Agostiniani et al. in ESAIM Control Opt Calculus Var 25: 24, 2019); (Lewicka and Lucic in Commun Pure Appl Math 73: 1880–1932, 2018); (Schmidt in J de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées 88: 107–122, 2007) , to a wider class of films, whose prestrain depends on both the midplate and the transversal variables. The ansatz for our$$\Gamma $$ $\Gamma $ convergence result uses a specific type of wrinkling, which is built on exotic solutions to the MongeAmpere equation, constructed via convex integration (Lewicka and Pakzad in Anal PDE 10: 695–727, 2017). We show that the expression for our$$\Gamma $$ $\Gamma $ limit has a natural interpretation in terms of the orthogonal projection of the residual strain onto a suitable subspace. We also show that some type of wrinkling phenomenon is necessary to match the lower bound of the$$\Gamma $$ $\Gamma $ limit in certain circumstances. These results all assume a prestrain of the same order as the thickness; we also discuss why it is natural to focus on that regime by considering what can happen when the prestrain is larger.$$\Gamma $$ $\Gamma $
