Macroscopic fluctuation theory for nonequilibrium stationary states, I
[ Abstract ]
We present a review of recent work on the statistical mechanics of nonequilibrium processes based on the analysis of large deviations properties of microscopic systems. Stochastic lattice gases are non trivial models of such phenomena and can be studied rigorously providing a source of challenging mathematical problems. In this way, some principles of wide validity have been obtained leading to interesting physical consequences.

On a parabolic free boundary problem modelling price formation
[ Abstract ]
We will discuss existence and uniqueness of solutions for a one dimensional parabolic evolution equation with a free boundary. This problem was introduced by J.-M. Lasry and P.-L. Lions as description of the dynamical formation of the price of a trading good. Short time existence and uniqueness is established by a contraction argument. Then we discuss the issue of global-in time-extension of the local solution which is intimately connected to the regularity of the free boundary.
We also present numerical results.

A two phase free boundary problem with applications in potential theory
[ Abstract ]
In this talk I will present some recent directions, still to be developed, in potential theory, that are connected to a two-phase free boundary problems. The potential theoretic topic that I will discuss is the so called Quadrature Domains.

The most simple free boundary/potential problem that we can present is the following. Given constants $a_\\pm, \\lambda_\\pm >0$ and two points $x^\\pm$ in ${\\bf R}^n$. Find a function $u$ such that
$$\\Delta u = \\left( \\lambda_+ \\chi_{\\{u>0 \\}} - a_+\\delta_{x^+}\\right) - \\left( \\lambda_- \\chi_{\\{u<0 \\}} - a_-\\delta_{x^-}\\right),$$
where $\\delta$ is the Dirac mass.

In general this problem is solvable for two Dirac masses. The requirement, somehow implicit in the above equation, is that the support of the measures (in this case the Dirac masses) is to be in included in the positivity and the negativity set (respectively).

In general this problem does not have a solution, and there some strong restrictions on the measures, in order to have some partial results.

Global compact attractors and their tripartition under persistence (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
The study of the dynamics of a semiflow (inertial manifolds, persistence) is largely facilitated if there is a global compact attractor, i.e. a compact invariant subset which attracts a sufficiently broad class of subsets of the state space.
Unfortunately, there in no uniform use of the concept of a global compact attractor in the literature: it has been used for a compact attractor of points, compact attractor of neighborhoods of compact sets, and compact attractor of bounded sets.
Persistence theory allows to discuss the long-term survival of populations in a dynamical systems framework. There is a two-way interaction between persistence and global compact attractors. On the one hand, the existence of a compact attractor of points helps to establish the persistence of the semiflow. On the other hand, the global attractor of a uniformly persistent semiflow divides into three invariant parts: an extinction attractor, a persistence attractor, and a set of orbits that connect the extinction to the persistence attractor. The persistence attractor has further interesting properties like local stability and connectedness. Examples are presented where the persistence attractor can be used to prove the global stability of the persistence equilibrium. (joint work with Hal L. Smith)

Glenn Webb (Vanderbilt University)
Analysis of a Model for Transfer Phenomena in Biological Populations (ENGLISH)
[ Abstract ]
We study the problem of transfer in a population structured by a continuum variable corresponding to the quantity being transferred. The transfer of the quantity occurs between individuals according to specified rules. The model is of Boltzmann type with kernel corresponding to the transfer process. We prove that the transfer process preserves total mass of the transferred quantity and the solutions of the simple model converge weakly to Radon measures. We generalize the model by introducing proliferation of individuals and production and diffusion of the transferable quantity. It is shown that the generalized model admits a globally asymptotically stable steady state, provided that transfer is sufficiently small. We discuss an application of our model to cancer cell populations, in which individual cells exchange the surface protein P-glycoprotein, an important factor in acquired multidrug resistance against cancer chemotherapy.

Decay of smooth vectors for regular representations
[ Abstract ]
Let $G/H$ be a homogeneous space of a Lie group, and consider the regular representation $L$ of $G$ on $E=L^p(G/H)$. A smooth vector for $L$ is a function $f$ in $E$ such that $g$ mapsto $L(g)f$ is smooth, $G$ to $E$. We investigate circumstances under which all such functions decay at infinity (jt with B. Krotz)

On the $p$-parity conjecture in the function field case
[ Abstract ]
Let $F$ be a function field in one variable with field of constant a finite field of characteristic $p>0$. Let $E/F$ be an elliptic curve over $F$. We show that the order of the Hasse-Weil $L$-function of $E/F$ at $s=1$ and the corank of the $p$-Selmer group of $E/F$ have the same parity (joint work with C. Wuthrich).

[ Abstract ]
KdV方程式をはじめとする長波長近似の非線形分散型方程式は,水面波の運動やプラズマ中のイオンの運動を記述することで知られている. KdV方程式のソリトン解は安定的に伝播することが知られていたが,近年変分法に基づいたアプローチで非可積分系のモデルの場合にもソリトン解とよく似た解が安定的に存在することが証明された.第1回目の講演ではに変分原理に基づいた安定性の結果について概説し,次にFermi-Pasta-Ulam格子やある種の流体のbidirectional modelなど変分原理から安定性がうまく説明できないモデルの場合について述べる.

Dynamics of solitons in non-integrable systemsⅠ
[ Abstract ]
完全可積分系であるKdV方程式においては,多重ソリトン解の構造はすでに詳しく解明されており,ソリトンどうしが衝突した後,各ソリトンの形状がすぐに元通りに復元するなどの性質もよく知られている.しかし方程式中の指数を変えて得られる一般化KdV方程式の場合は,非可積分系であるため,多重ソリトン解の便利な表示式は存在せず,ソリトンどうしの衝突後に何が起こるのか,理論的には未解明であった.Merle氏は,最近Yvon Martel氏と共同でこの問題を解決し,衝突後にわずかな欠損が生じるもののソリトンの形状が見事に復元することを証明するとともに,大きなソリトンが微小なソリトンと衝突した際に生じる位相(phase)のズレに関して, KdV方程式の場合と全く違う現象が起こることも明らかにした.

Mapping class group for hyperkaehler manifolds
[ Abstract ]
A mapping class group is a group of orientation-preserving
diffeomorphisms up to isotopy. I explain how to compute a
mapping class group of a hyperkaehler manifold. It is
commensurable to an arithmetic lattice in a Lie group
$SO(n-3,3)$. This makes it possible to state and prove a
new version of Torelli theorem.

Carlos Simpson (CNRS, University of Nice)
Differential equations and the topology of algebraic varieties
[ Abstract ]
The study of the topology of complex algebraic varieties makes use of differential equations in several different ways. The classical notion of variation of Hodge structure contains, on the one hand, the Gauss-Manin differential equations, on the other hand Hodge metric data which satisfy harmonic bundle equations. These two aspects persist in the study of arbitrary representations of the fundamental group. Combining them leads to a notion of ``Hodge structure'' on the space of representations. This can be extended to the higher homotopical structure of a variety, by using ideas of ``shape'' and nonabelian cohomology.

On recursion relation of the KP hierarchy
[ Abstract ]
This talk is based on an ongoing project in collaboration with Takasaki and Tsuchiya. Our goal is to reconstruct and generalise results by Eynard et al. from the standpoint of the integrable systems. Eynard, Orantin and their collaborators found "topological recursion formulae" to describe partition functions and correlation functions of the matrix models, topological string theories etc., using simple algebro-geometric data called "spectral curves". On the other hand, it is well known that the partition functions of those theories are tau functions of integrable hierarchies.
We have found that any solution of the KP hierarchy (with an asymptotic expansion parameter h) can be recovered by recursion relations from its "dispersionless" part (which corresponds to the genus zero part in topological theories) and a quantised contact transformation (which corresponds to the string equations) specifying the solution.

Low Energy Asymptotics of the SSF for Pauli Operators with Non-Constant Magnetic Fields
[ Abstract ]
In my talk, I will consider the 3D Pauli operator with non-constant magnetic field of constant direction,
perturbed by a matrix-valued electric potential which decays fast enough at infinity. I will discuss
the low-energy asymptotics of the associated spectral shift function which is proportional to the eigenvalue
counting function at negative energies, and to the scattering phase at positive energies.

Holomorphic dynamics in several variables: equidistribution problems and statistical properties
[ Abstract ]
The main problem in the dynamical study of a map is to understand the long term behavior of orbits. The abstract theory of non uniformly hyperbolic systems is well understood but it is very difficult to decide when a given system is non uniformly hyperbolic and to study it's sharp ergodic properties.
Holomorphic dynamics in several variables provide large classes of examples of non uniformly hyperbolic systems. One can compute the entropy, construct a measure of maximal entropy and study the sharp statistical properties: central limit theorem, large deviations and exponential decay of correlations. It is also possible to prove sharp equidistribution results for preimages of analytic sets of arbitrary dimension. The main tools are: pluripotential theory, analytic geometry, and good estimates from PDE.
These systems appear naturally if we apply Newton's method to localise the common zeros of of polynomial equations in several variables. In the study of polynomial automorphisms of complex Euclidean spaces, or automorphisms of compact K\\"ahler manifolds.
