Optimal destabilizer for a Fano manifold (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
Around 2005, S. Donaldson asked whether the lower bound of the Calabi functional is achieved by a sequence of the normalized Donaldson-Futaki invariants.
For a Fano manifold we construct a sequence of multiplier ideal sheaves from a new geometric flow and answer to Donaldson's question.

Higher Hochschild homology as a functor (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Higher Hochschild homology generalizes classical Hochschild homology for rings. Recently, Turchin and Willwacher computed higher Hochschild homology of a finite wedge of circles with coefficients in the Loday functor associated to the ring of dual numbers over the rationals. In particular, they obtained linear representations of the groups Out(F_n) which do not factorize through GL(n,Z).

In this talk, I will begin by recalling what is Hochschild homology and higher Hochschild homology. Then I will explain how viewing higher Hochschild homology of a finite wedge of circles as a functor on the category of free groups provides a conceptual framework which allows powerful tools such as exponential functors and polynomial functors to be used. In particular, this allows the generalization of the results of Turchin and Willwacher; this gives rise to new linear representations of Out(F_n) which do not factorize through GL(n,Z).

Joseph Ayoub (University of Zurich)
P^1-localisation and a possible definition of arithmetic Kodaira-Spencer classes (English)
[ Abstract ]
A^1-localisation is a universal construction which produces "cohomology theories" for which the affine line A^1 is contractible. It plays a central role in the theory of motives à la Morel-Voevodsky. In this talk, I'll discuss the analogous construction where the affine line is replaced by the projective line P^1. This is the P^1-localisation which is arguably an unnatural construction since it produces "cohomology theories" for which the projective line P^1 is contractible. Nevertheless, I'll explain a few positive results and some computations around this construction which naturally lead to a definition of Kodaira-Spencer classes of arithmetic nature. (Unfortunately, it is yet unclear if these classes are really interesting and nontrivial.)

Varieties of dense globally F-split type with a non-invertible polarized
endomorphism
[ Abstract ]
Broustet and Gongyo conjectured that if a normal projective variety X has a non-invertible polaried endomorphism, then X is of Calabi-Yau type. Furthermore, Schwede and Smith conjectured that a projective variety is of Calabi-Yau type if and only if of dense globally F-split type. Therefore it is a natural question to ask if a normal projective variety X has a non-invertible polaried endomorphism, then X is of dense globally F-split type. In this talk, I will introduce simple points and difficult points of the question. Furthermore I will give the affirmative answer of my question for 2-dimensional case.

The porous medium equation on noncompact Riemannian manifolds with initial datum a measure
(English)
[ Abstract ]
We investigate existence and uniqueness of weak solutions of the Cauchy problem for the porous medium equation on Cartan-Hadamard manifolds. We show existence of solutions that take a finite Radon measure as initial datum, possibly sign-changing. We then prove uniqueness in the class of nonnegative solutions, upon assuming a quadratic lower bound on the Ricci curvature. Our result is "optimal" in the sense that any weak solution necessarily solves a Cauchy problem with initial datum a finite Radon measure. Moreover, as byproducts of the techniques we employ, we obtain some new results in potential analysis on manifolds, concerning the validity of a modified version of the mean-value inequality for superharmonic functions and related properties of potentials of positive Radon measures. Finally, we briefly discuss some work in progress regarding stability of the porous medium equation with respect to the Wasserstein distance, on Riemannian manifolds with Ricci curvature bounded below.

On sharp large deviations for the bridge of a general diffusion
(English)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk we provide sharp Large Deviation estimates for the probability of exit from a domain for the bridge of a d-dimensional general diffusion process X, as the conditioning time tends to 0. This kind of results is motivated by applications to numerical simulation. In particular we investigate the influence of the drift b of X. It turns out that the sharp asymptotics for the exit time probability are independent of the drift, provided b enjoyes a simple condition that is always satisfied in dimension 1. On the other hand, we show that the drift can be influential if this assumption is not satisfied. This talk is based on a joint work with P. Baldi and L. Caramellino.

Moduli space of l-adic Langlands parameters and the stable Bernstein center (English)
[ Abstract ]
Motivated by the description of the integral l-adic cohomology of certain Shimura varieties in middle degree, Emerton and Helm have conjectured the existence of a certain local Langlands correspondence for l-adic families of n-dimensional Galois representations. The proof of this conjecture by Helm and Moss relies on a beautiful isomorphism between the ring of functions of the moduli space of l-adic representations and the integral Bernstein center of GL_n(F). We will present a work in progress with Helm, Korinczuk and Moss towards a generalization of this result for arbitrary (tamely ramified) reductive groups.

Diagrammatic Algebra (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Three main ideas will be explored. First, a higher dimensional category (a category that has arrows, double arrows, triple arrows, and quadruple arrows) that is based upon the axioms of a Frobenius algebra will be outlined. Then these structures will be promoted into one higher dimension so that braiding can be introduced. Second, relationships between braiding and multiplication will be studied from a homological perspective. Third, the next order relations will be used to formulate a system of abstract tensor equations that are analogous to the Yang-Baxter relation. In this way, a broad outline of the notion of diagrammatic algebra will be presented.

'Oumuamua, the Gömböc and the Pebbles of Mars (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
In this talk I will concentrate on two examples from planetary science, which made the headlines in recent years to highlight the power and significance of nonlinear geometric partial differential equations (PDEs) explaining puzzles presented by Nature. One key link between PDE theory of shape evolution and natural phenomena is the Gömböc, the first mono-monostatic object whose existence was first conjectured by V.I. Arnold in 1995. I will explain the connection and illustrate the process how mathematical models of Nature may be identified.

Part 1 : Categorical analogues of surface singularities
Part 2 : Prismatic Homology (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
Part 1 :
Isotopy classes of surfaces that are embedded in 3-space can be described as a free 4-category that has one object and one weakly invertible arrow. That description coincides with a fundamental higher homotopy group. The surface singularities that correspond to cusps and optimal points on folds can be used to develop categorical analogues of swallow-tails and horizontal cusps. In this talk, the 4-category will be constructed from the ground up, and the general structure will be described.

Part 2 :
A qualgebra is a set that has two binary operations whose relationships to each other are similar to the relations between group multiplication and conjugation. The axioms themselves are described in terms of isotopies of knotted trivalent graphs and the handle-body knots that are represented. The moves naturally live in prisms. By using a generalization of the tensor product of chain complexes, a homology theory is presented that encapsulates these axioms and the higher order relations between them. We show how to use this homology theory to give a solution a system of tensor equations related to the Yang-Baxter relation.

Solutions to two conjectures in branched transport: stability and regularity of optimal paths (English)
[ Abstract ]
Models involving branched structures are employed to describe several supply-demand systems such as the structure of the nerves of a leaf, the system of roots of a tree and the nervous or cardiovascular systems. The transportation cost in these models is proportional to a concave power $\alpha \in (0,1)$ of the intensity of the flow. We focus on the stability of the optimal transports, with respect to variations of the source and target measures. The stability was known when $\alpha$ is bigger than a critical threshold, but we prove it for every exponent $\alpha \in (0,1)$ and we provide a counterexample for $\alpha=0$. Thus we completely solve a conjecture of the book Optimal transportation networks by Bernot, Caselles and Morel. Moreover the robustness of our proof allows us to get the stability for more general lower semicontinuous functional. Furthermore, we prove the stability for the mailing problem, which was completely open in the literature, solving another conjecture of the aforementioned book. We use the latter result to show the regularity of the optimal networks. (Joint works with Maria Colombo and Andrea Marchese)
