Multilevel SMC Samplers
[ Abstract ]

The approximation of expectations w.r.t. probability distributions associated to the solution of partial differential equations (PDEs) is considered herein; this scenario appears routinely in Bayesian inverse problems. In practice, one often has to solve the associated PDE numerically, using, for instance finite element methods and leading to a discretisation bias, with step-size level h_L. In addition, the expectation cannot be computed analytically and one often resorts to Monte Carlo methods. In the context of this problem, it is known that the introduction of the multi-level Monte Carlo (MLMC) method can reduce the amount of computational effort to estimate expectations, for a given level of error. This is achieved via a telescoping identity associated to a Monte Carlo approximation of a sequence of probability distributions with discretisation levels \infty>h_0>h_1\cdots>h_L. In many practical problems of interest, one cannot achieve an i.i.d. sampling of the associated sequence of probability distributions. A sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) version of the MLMC method is introduced to deal with this problem. It is shown that under appropriate assumptions, the attractive property of a reduction of the amount of computational effort to estimate expectations, for a given level of error, can be maintained in the SMC context. The approach is numerically illustrated on a Bayesian inverse problem. This is a joint work with Kody Law (ORNL), Yan Zhou (NUS), Raul Tempone (KAUST) and Alex Beskos (UCL).

On approximation of stability radius for an infinite-dimensional closed-loop control system
(JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
We discuss the problem of approximating stability radius appearing
in the design procedure of finite-dimensional stabilizing controllers
for an infinite-dimensional dynamical system. The calculation of
stability radius needs the value of the H-infinity norm of a transfer
function whose realization is described by infinite-dimensional
operators in a Hilbert space. From the practical point of view, we
need to prepare a family of approximate finite-dimensional operators
and then to calculate the H-infinity norm of their transfer functions.
However, it is not assured that they converge to the value of the
H-infinity norm of the original transfer function. The purpose of
this study is to justify the convergence. In a numerical example,
we treat parabolic distributed parameter systems with distributed
control and distributed/boundary observation.

Hamilton-Jacobi equations for optimal control on 2-dimensional junction (English)
[ Abstract ]
We are interested in infinite horizon optimal control problems on 2-dimensional junctions (namely a union of half-planes sharing a common straight line) where different dynamics and different running costs are allowed in each half-plane. As for more classical optimal control problems, ones wishes to determine the Hamilton-Jacobi equation which characterizes the value function. However, the geometric singularities of the 2-dimensional junction and discontinuities of data do not allow us to apply the classical results of the theory of the viscosity solutions.
We will explain how to skirt these difficulties using arguments coming both from the viscosity theory and from optimal control theory. By this way we prove that the expected equation to characterize the value function is well posed. In particular we prove a comparison principle for this equation.

Ricci-mean curvature flows in gradient shrinking Ricci solitons (JAPANESE)
[ Abstract ]
A Ricci-mean curvature flow is a coupled parabolic PDE system of a mean
curvature flow and a Ricci flow.
In this talk, we consider a Ricci-mean curvature flow in a gradient
shrinking Ricci soliton, and give a generalization of a well-known result
of Huisken which states that if a mean curvature flow in a Euclidean space
develops a singularity of type I, then its parabolic rescaling near the singular
point converges to a self-shrinker.

Holomorphic motions and the monodromy (Japanese)
[ Abstract ]
Holomorphic motions, which was introduced by Mane, Sad and Sullivan, is a useful tool for Teichmuller theory as well as for complex dynamics. In particular, Slodkowski’s theorem makes a significant contribution to them. The theorem says that every holomorphic motion of a closed set on the Riemann sphere parametrized by the unit disk is extended to a holomorphic motion of the whole Riemann sphere parametrized by the unit disk. In this talk, we consider a generalization of the theorem. If time permits, we will discuss applications of our results.
