<br />
Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />
<br />
<br />
===Son Tu===<br />
<br />
Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).<br />
<br />

<br />
Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce a recent development in the global well-posedness of the Landau equation (1936) in a general smooth bounded domain, which has been a long-outstanding open problem. This work proves the global stability of the Landau equation in an $L^\infty_{x,v}$ framework with the Coulombic potential in a general smooth bounded domain with the specular reflection boundary condition for initial perturbations of the Maxwellian equilibrium states. Our methods consist of the generalization of the well-posedness theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equation (HJV-2014, HJJ-2018) and the extension of the boundary value problem to a whole space problem, as well as the use of a recent extension of De Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equations (GIMV-2016) and the Morrey estimates (BCM-1996) to further control the velocity derivatives, which ensures the uniqueness. This is a joint work with Y. Guo, H. J. Hwang, and Z. Ouyang.<br />
<br />

===Stefania Patrizi===<br />
<br />
Title: <br />
Dislocations dynamics: from microscopic models to macroscopic crystal plasticity<br />
<br />
Abstract: Dislocation theory aims at explaining the plastic behavior of materials by the motion of line defects in crystals. Peierls-Nabarro models consist in approximating the geometric motion of these defects by nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations. We study the asymptotic limit of solutions of Peierls-Nabarro equations. Different scalings lead to different models at microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic scale. This is joint work with E. Valdinoci.<br />
<br />
<br />
===Claude Bardos===<br />
Title: From the d'Alembert paradox to the 1984 Kato criteria via the 1941 $1/3$ Kolmogorov law and the 1949 Onsager conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: Several of my recent contributions, with Marie Farge, Edriss Titi, Emile Wiedemann, Piotr and Agneska Gwiadza, were motivated by the following issues: The role of boundary effect in mathematical theory of fluids mechanic and the similarity, in presence of these effects, of the weak convergence in the zero viscosity limit and the statistical theory of turbulence. As a consequence, I will recall the Onsager conjecture and compare it to the issue of anomalous energy dissipation.<br />
<br />
Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.<br />
<br />
===Albert Ai===<br />
Title: Two dimensional gravity waves at low regularity: Energy estimates<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider the gravity water wave equations in two space dimensions. Our focus is on sharp cubic energy estimates and low regularity solutions. Precisely, we will introduce techniques to prove a new class of energy estimates, which we call balanced cubic estimates. This yields a key improvement over the earlier cubic estimates of Hunter-Ifrim-Tataru, while preserving their scale invariant character and their position-velocity potential holomorphic coordinate formulation. Even without using Strichartz estimates, these results allow us to significantly lower the Sobolev regularity threshold for local well-posedness. This is joint work with Mihaela Ifrim and Daniel Tataru.<br />
<br />
===Ilyas Khan===<br />
Title: The Uniqueness of Asymptotically Conical Self-Shrinkers in High Codimension.<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider self-shrinking solitons of the mean curvature flow that are smoothly asymptotic to a Riemannian cone in $\mathbb{R}^n$. In 2011, L. Wang proved the uniqueness of self-shrinking ends asymptotic to a cone $C$ in the case of hypersurfaces (codimension 1) by using a backwards uniqueness result for the heat equation due to Escauriaza, Sverak, and Seregin. Later, J. Bernstein proved the same fact using purely elliptic methods. We consider the case of self-shrinkers in high codimension, and outline how to prove the same uniqueness result in this significantly more general case, by using geometric arguments and extending Bernstein’s result.<br />
<br />
===Mathew Langford===<br />
Title: Concavity of the arrival time<br />
<br />
Abstract: We present a simple connection between differential Harnack inequalities for hypersurface flows and natural concavity properties of their time-of-arrival functions. We prove these concavity properties directly for a large class of flows by applying a novel concavity maximum principle argument to the corresponding level set flow equations. In particular, this yields a short proof of Hamilton’s differential Harnack inequality for mean curvature flow and, more generally, Andrews’ differential Harnack inequalities for certain “$\alpha$-inverse-concave” flows.<br />
<br />
===Philippe LeFloch===<br />
Title: Nonlinear stability of self-gravitating matter under low decay and weak regularity conditions<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will present recent progress on the global evolution problem for self-gravitating matter. (1) For Einstein's constraint equations, motivated by a scheme proposed by Carlotto and Schoen I will show the existence of asymptotically Euclidean Einstein spaces with low decay; joint work with T. Nguyen. <br />
<br />
(2) For Einstein's evolution equations in the regime near Minkowski spacetime, I will show the global nonlinear stability of massive matter fields; joint work with Y. Ma. <br />
<br />
(3) For the colliding gravitational wave problem, I will show the existence of weakly regular spacetimes containing geometric singularities across which junction conditions are imposed; joint work with B. Le Floch and G. Veneziano.<br />
<br />
<br />
===Joonhyun La===<br />
Title: On a kinetic model of polymeric fluids<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we prove global well-posedness of a system describing behavior of dilute flexible polymeric fluids. This model is based on kinetic theory, and a main difficulty for this system is its multi-scale nature. A new function space, based on moments, is introduced to address this issue, and this function space allows us to deal with larger initial data.<br />
<br />
<br />
===Yannick Sire===<br />
Title: Minimizers for the thin one-phase free boundary problem<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider the thin one-phase free boundary problem, associated to minimizing a weighted Dirichlet energy of thefunction in the half-space plus the area of the positivity set of that function restricted to the boundary. I will provide a rather complete picture of the (partial ) regularity of the free boundary, providing content and structure estimates on the singular set of the free boundary when it exists. All of these results hold for the full range of the relevant weight related to an anomalous diffusion on the boundary. The approach does not follow the standard one introduced in the seminal work of Alt and Caffarelli. Instead, the nonlocal nature of the distributional measure associated to a minimizer necessitates arguments which are less reliant on the underlying PDE. This opens several directions of research that I will try to describe. <br />
<br />
===Matthew Schrecker===<br />
Title: Existence theory and Newtonian limit for 1D relativistic Euler equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will present the results of my recent work with Gui-Qiang Chen on the Euler equations in the conditions of special relativity. I will show how the theory of compensated compactness may be used to obtain the existence of entropy solutions to this system. Moreover, it is expected that as the light speed grows to infinity, solutions to the relativistic Euler equations will converge to their classical (Newtonian) counterparts. The theory we develop is also sufficient to demonstrate this convergence rigorously.<br />
<br />
===Zhiyan Ding===<br />
Title: Ensemble Kalman Sampling: well-posedness, mean-field limit and convergence analysis<br />
<br />
Abstract: Ensemble Kalman Sampling (EKS) is a method to find iid samples from a target distribution. As of today, why the algorithm works and how it converges is mostly unknown. In this talk, I will focus on the continuous version of EKS with linear forward map, a coupled SDE system. I will talk about its well-posedness and justify its mean-filed limit is a Fokker-Planck equation, whose equilibrium state is the target distribution.<br />
<br />
===Adrian Tudorascu===<br />
Title: On the Lagrangian description of the Sticky Particle flow <br />
<br />
Abstract: R. Hynd has recently proved that for absolutely continuous initial velocities the Sticky Particle system admits solutions described by monotone flow maps in Lagrangian coordinates. We present a generalization of this result to general initial velocities and discuss some consequences. (This is based on ongoing work with M. Suder.)</div>Hunghttps://www.math.wisc.edu/wiki/index.php?title=PDE_Geometric_Analysis_seminar&diff=19148PDE Geometric Analysis seminar2020-02-26T03:36:07Z<p>Hung: /* Abstracts */</p>

<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />

Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).<br />

Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce a recent development in the global well-posedness of the Landau equation (1936) in a general smooth bounded domain, which has been a long-outstanding open problem. This work proves the global stability of the Landau equation in an $L^\infty_{x,v}$ framework with the Coulombic potential in a general smooth bounded domain with the specular reflection boundary condition for initial perturbations of the Maxwellian equilibrium states. Our methods consist of the generalization of the well-posedness theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equation (HJV-2014, HJJ-2018) and the extension of the boundary value problem to a whole space problem, as well as the use of a recent extension of De Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equations (GIMV-2016) and the Morrey estimates (BCM-1996) to further control the velocity derivatives, which ensures the uniqueness. This is a joint work with Y. Guo, H. J. Hwang, and Z. Ouyang.<br />

Title: <br />
Dislocations dynamics: from microscopic models to macroscopic crystal plasticity<br />
<br />
Abstract: Dislocation theory aims at explaining the plastic behavior of materials by the motion of line defects in crystals. Peierls-Nabarro models consist in approximating the geometric motion of these defects by nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations. We study the asymptotic limit of solutions of Peierls-Nabarro equations. Different scalings lead to different models at microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic scale. This is joint work with E. Valdinoci.<br />

Title: From the d'Alembert paradox to the 1984 Kato criteria via the 1941 $1/3$ Kolmogorov law and the 1949 Onsager conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: Several of my recent contributions, with Marie Farge, Edriss Titi, Emile Wiedemann, Piotr and Agneska Gwiadza, were motivated by the following issues: The role of boundary effect in mathematical theory of fluids mechanic and the similarity, in presence of these effects, of the weak convergence in the zero viscosity limit and the statistical theory of turbulence. As a consequence, I will recall the Onsager conjecture and compare it to the issue of anomalous energy dissipation.<br />
<br />
Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.<br />

Title: Two dimensional gravity waves at low regularity: Energy estimates<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider the gravity water wave equations in two space dimensions. Our focus is on sharp cubic energy estimates and low regularity solutions. Precisely, we will introduce techniques to prove a new class of energy estimates, which we call balanced cubic estimates. This yields a key improvement over the earlier cubic estimates of Hunter-Ifrim-Tataru, while preserving their scale invariant character and their position-velocity potential holomorphic coordinate formulation. Even without using Strichartz estimates, these results allow us to significantly lower the Sobolev regularity threshold for local well-posedness. This is joint work with Mihaela Ifrim and Daniel Tataru.<br />

Title: The Uniqueness of Asymptotically Conical Self-Shrinkers in High Codimension.<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider self-shrinking solitons of the mean curvature flow that are smoothly asymptotic to a Riemannian cone in $\mathbb{R}^n$. In 2011, L. Wang proved the uniqueness of self-shrinking ends asymptotic to a cone $C$ in the case of hypersurfaces (codimension 1) by using a backwards uniqueness result for the heat equation due to Escauriaza, Sverak, and Seregin. Later, J. Bernstein proved the same fact using purely elliptic methods. We consider the case of self-shrinkers in high codimension, and outline how to prove the same uniqueness result in this significantly more general case, by using geometric arguments and extending Bernstein’s result.<br />
<br />
===Mathew Langford===<br />
Title: Concavity of the arrival time<br />
<br />
Abstract: We present a simple connection between differential Harnack inequalities for hypersurface flows and natural concavity properties of their time-of-arrival functions. We prove these concavity properties directly for a large class of flows by applying a novel concavity maximum principle argument to the corresponding level set flow equations. In particular, this yields a short proof of Hamilton’s differential Harnack inequality for mean curvature flow and, more generally, Andrews’ differential Harnack inequalities for certain “$\alpha$-inverse-concave” flows.<br />

Title: Nonlinear stability of self-gravitating matter under low decay and weak regularity conditions<br />

Abstract: I will present recent progress on the global evolution problem for self-gravitating matter. (1) For Einstein's constraint equations, motivated by a scheme proposed by Carlotto and Schoen I will show the existence of asymptotically Euclidean Einstein spaces with low decay; joint work with T. Nguyen. <br />
<br />
(2) For Einstein's evolution equations in the regime near Minkowski spacetime, I will show the global nonlinear stability of massive matter fields; joint work with Y. Ma. <br />
<br />
(3) For the colliding gravitational wave problem, I will show the existence of weakly regular spacetimes containing geometric singularities across which junction conditions are imposed; joint work with B. Le Floch and G. Veneziano.<br />

Title: On a kinetic model of polymeric fluids<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we prove global well-posedness of a system describing behavior of dilute flexible polymeric fluids. This model is based on kinetic theory, and a main difficulty for this system is its multi-scale nature. A new function space, based on moments, is introduced to address this issue, and this function space allows us to deal with larger initial data.<br />

Title: Minimizers for the thin one-phase free boundary problem<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider the thin one-phase free boundary problem, associated to minimizing a weighted Dirichlet energy of thefunction in the half-space plus the area of the positivity set of that function restricted to the boundary. I will provide a rather complete picture of the (partial ) regularity of the free boundary, providing content and structure estimates on the singular set of the free boundary when it exists. All of these results hold for the full range of the relevant weight related to an anomalous diffusion on the boundary. The approach does not follow the standard one introduced in the seminal work of Alt and Caffarelli. Instead, the nonlocal nature of the distributional measure associated to a minimizer necessitates arguments which are less reliant on the underlying PDE. This opens several directions of research that I will try to describe. <br />

Title: Existence theory and Newtonian limit for 1D relativistic Euler equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will present the results of my recent work with Gui-Qiang Chen on the Euler equations in the conditions of special relativity. I will show how the theory of compensated compactness may be used to obtain the existence of entropy solutions to this system. Moreover, it is expected that as the light speed grows to infinity, solutions to the relativistic Euler equations will converge to their classical (Newtonian) counterparts. The theory we develop is also sufficient to demonstrate this convergence rigorously.<br />

Title: Ensemble Kalman Sampling: well-posedness, mean-field limit and convergence analysis<br />
<br />
Abstract: Ensemble Kalman Sampling (EKS) is a method to find iid samples from a target distribution. As of today, why the algorithm works and how it converges is mostly unknown. In this talk, I will focus on the continuous version of EKS with linear forward map, a coupled SDE system. I will talk about its well-posedness and justify its mean-filed limit is a Fokker-Planck equation, whose equilibrium state is the target distribution.<br />

Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />

Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).<br />

Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce a recent development in the global well-posedness of the Landau equation (1936) in a general smooth bounded domain, which has been a long-outstanding open problem. This work proves the global stability of the Landau equation in an $L^\infty_{x,v}$ framework with the Coulombic potential in a general smooth bounded domain with the specular reflection boundary condition for initial perturbations of the Maxwellian equilibrium states. Our methods consist of the generalization of the well-posedness theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equation (HJV-2014, HJJ-2018) and the extension of the boundary value problem to a whole space problem, as well as the use of a recent extension of De Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equations (GIMV-2016) and the Morrey estimates (BCM-1996) to further control the velocity derivatives, which ensures the uniqueness. This is a joint work with Y. Guo, H. J. Hwang, and Z. Ouyang.<br />

Title: <br />
Dislocations dynamics: from microscopic models to macroscopic crystal plasticity<br />
<br />
Abstract: Dislocation theory aims at explaining the plastic behavior of materials by the motion of line defects in crystals. Peierls-Nabarro models consist in approximating the geometric motion of these defects by nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations. We study the asymptotic limit of solutions of Peierls-Nabarro equations. Different scalings lead to different models at microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic scale. This is joint work with E. Valdinoci.<br />

Title: From the d'Alembert paradox to the 1984 Kato criteria via the 1941 $1/3$ Kolmogorov law and the 1949 Onsager conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: Several of my recent contributions, with Marie Farge, Edriss Titi, Emile Wiedemann, Piotr and Agneska Gwiadza, were motivated by the following issues: The role of boundary effect in mathematical theory of fluids mechanic and the similarity, in presence of these effects, of the weak convergence in the zero viscosity limit and the statistical theory of turbulence. As a consequence, I will recall the Onsager conjecture and compare it to the issue of anomalous energy dissipation.<br />
<br />
Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.<br />

Title: Two dimensional gravity waves at low regularity: Energy estimates<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider the gravity water wave equations in two space dimensions. Our focus is on sharp cubic energy estimates and low regularity solutions. Precisely, we will introduce techniques to prove a new class of energy estimates, which we call balanced cubic estimates. This yields a key improvement over the earlier cubic estimates of Hunter-Ifrim-Tataru, while preserving their scale invariant character and their position-velocity potential holomorphic coordinate formulation. Even without using Strichartz estimates, these results allow us to significantly lower the Sobolev regularity threshold for local well-posedness. This is joint work with Mihaela Ifrim and Daniel Tataru.<br />

Title: The Uniqueness of Asymptotically Conical Self-Shrinkers in High Codimension.<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider self-shrinking solitons of the mean curvature flow that are smoothly asymptotic to a Riemannian cone in $\mathbb{R}^n$. In 2011, L. Wang proved the uniqueness of self-shrinking ends asymptotic to a cone $C$ in the case of hypersurfaces (codimension 1) by using a backwards uniqueness result for the heat equation due to Escauriaza, Sverak, and Seregin. Later, J. Bernstein proved the same fact using purely elliptic methods. We consider the case of self-shrinkers in high codimension, and outline how to prove the same uniqueness result in this significantly more general case, by using geometric arguments and extending Bernstein’s result.<br />
<br />
===Mathew Langford===<br />
Title: Concavity of the arrival time<br />
<br />
Abstract: We present a simple connection between differential Harnack inequalities for hypersurface flows and natural concavity properties of their time-of-arrival functions. We prove these concavity properties directly for a large class of flows by applying a novel concavity maximum principle argument to the corresponding level set flow equations. In particular, this yields a short proof of Hamilton’s differential Harnack inequality for mean curvature flow and, more generally, Andrews’ differential Harnack inequalities for certain “$\alpha$-inverse-concave” flows.<br />

Title: Nonlinear stability of self-gravitating matter under low decay and weak regularity conditions<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will present recent progress on the global evolution problem for self-gravitating matter. (1) For Einstein's constraint equations, motivated by a scheme proposed by Carlotto and Schoen I will show the existence of asymptotically Euclidean Einstein spaces with low decay; joint work with T. Nguyen. <br />
<br />
(2) For Einstein's evolution equations in the regime near Minkowski spacetime, I will show the global nonlinear stability of massive matter fields; joint work with Y. Ma. <br />
<br />
(3) For the colliding gravitational wave problem, I will show the existence of weakly regular spacetimes containing geometric singularities across which junction conditions are imposed; joint work with B. Le Floch and G. Veneziano.<br />

Title: On a kinetic model of polymeric fluids<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we prove global well-posedness of a system describing behavior of dilute flexible polymeric fluids. This model is based on kinetic theory, and a main difficulty for this system is its multi-scale nature. A new function space, based on moments, is introduced to address this issue, and this function space allows us to deal with larger initial data.<br />
<br />

===Yannick Sire===<br />
Title: Minimizers for the thin one-phase free boundary problem<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider the thin one-phase free boundary problem, associated to minimizing a weighted Dirichlet energy of thefunction in the half-space plus the area of the positivity set of that function restricted to the boundary. I will provide a rather complete picture of the (partial ) regularity of the free boundary, providing content and structure estimates on the singular set of the free boundary when it exists. All of these results hold for the full range of the relevant weight related to an anomalous diffusion on the boundary. The approach does not follow the standard one introduced in the seminal work of Alt and Caffarelli. Instead, the nonlocal nature of the distributional measure associated to a minimizer necessitates arguments which are less reliant on the underlying PDE. This opens several directions of research that I will try to describe. <br />
<br />
===Matthew Schrecker===<br />
Title: Existence theory and Newtonian limit for 1D relativistic Euler equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will present the results of my recent work with Gui-Qiang Chen on the Euler equations in the conditions of special relativity. I will show how the theory of compensated compactness may be used to obtain the existence of entropy solutions to this system. Moreover, it is expected that as the light speed grows to infinity, solutions to the relativistic Euler equations will converge to their classical (Newtonian) counterparts. The theory we develop is also sufficient to demonstrate this convergence rigorously.<br />

Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />

Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).<br />

Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce a recent development in the global well-posedness of the Landau equation (1936) in a general smooth bounded domain, which has been a long-outstanding open problem. This work proves the global stability of the Landau equation in an $L^\infty_{x,v}$ framework with the Coulombic potential in a general smooth bounded domain with the specular reflection boundary condition for initial perturbations of the Maxwellian equilibrium states. Our methods consist of the generalization of the well-posedness theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equation (HJV-2014, HJJ-2018) and the extension of the boundary value problem to a whole space problem, as well as the use of a recent extension of De Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equations (GIMV-2016) and the Morrey estimates (BCM-1996) to further control the velocity derivatives, which ensures the uniqueness. This is a joint work with Y. Guo, H. J. Hwang, and Z. Ouyang.<br />

Title: <br />
Dislocations dynamics: from microscopic models to macroscopic crystal plasticity<br />
<br />
Abstract: Dislocation theory aims at explaining the plastic behavior of materials by the motion of line defects in crystals. Peierls-Nabarro models consist in approximating the geometric motion of these defects by nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations. We study the asymptotic limit of solutions of Peierls-Nabarro equations. Different scalings lead to different models at microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic scale. This is joint work with E. Valdinoci.<br />

Title: From the d'Alembert paradox to the 1984 Kato criteria via the 1941 $1/3$ Kolmogorov law and the 1949 Onsager conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: Several of my recent contributions, with Marie Farge, Edriss Titi, Emile Wiedemann, Piotr and Agneska Gwiadza, were motivated by the following issues: The role of boundary effect in mathematical theory of fluids mechanic and the similarity, in presence of these effects, of the weak convergence in the zero viscosity limit and the statistical theory of turbulence. As a consequence, I will recall the Onsager conjecture and compare it to the issue of anomalous energy dissipation.<br />
<br />
Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.<br />

Title: Two dimensional gravity waves at low regularity: Energy estimates<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider the gravity water wave equations in two space dimensions. Our focus is on sharp cubic energy estimates and low regularity solutions. Precisely, we will introduce techniques to prove a new class of energy estimates, which we call balanced cubic estimates. This yields a key improvement over the earlier cubic estimates of Hunter-Ifrim-Tataru, while preserving their scale invariant character and their position-velocity potential holomorphic coordinate formulation. Even without using Strichartz estimates, these results allow us to significantly lower the Sobolev regularity threshold for local well-posedness. This is joint work with Mihaela Ifrim and Daniel Tataru.<br />

Title: The Uniqueness of Asymptotically Conical Self-Shrinkers in High Codimension.<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider self-shrinking solitons of the mean curvature flow that are smoothly asymptotic to a Riemannian cone in $\mathbb{R}^n$. In 2011, L. Wang proved the uniqueness of self-shrinking ends asymptotic to a cone $C$ in the case of hypersurfaces (codimension 1) by using a backwards uniqueness result for the heat equation due to Escauriaza, Sverak, and Seregin. Later, J. Bernstein proved the same fact using purely elliptic methods. We consider the case of self-shrinkers in high codimension, and outline how to prove the same uniqueness result in this significantly more general case, by using geometric arguments and extending Bernstein’s result.<br />
<br />
===Mathew Langford===<br />
Title: Concavity of the arrival time<br />
<br />
Abstract: We present a simple connection between differential Harnack inequalities for hypersurface flows and natural concavity properties of their time-of-arrival functions. We prove these concavity properties directly for a large class of flows by applying a novel concavity maximum principle argument to the corresponding level set flow equations. In particular, this yields a short proof of Hamilton’s differential Harnack inequality for mean curvature flow and, more generally, Andrews’ differential Harnack inequalities for certain “$\alpha$-inverse-concave” flows.<br />

===Philippe LeFloch===<br />
Title: Nonlinear stability of self-gravitating matter under low decay and weak regularity conditions<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will present recent progress on the global evolution problem for self-gravitating matter. (1) For Einstein's constraint equations, motivated by a scheme proposed by Carlotto and Schoen I will show the existence of asymptotically Euclidean Einstein spaces with low decay; joint work with T. Nguyen. <br />
<br />
(2) For Einstein's evolution equations in the regime near Minkowski spacetime, I will show the global nonlinear stability of massive matter fields; joint work with Y. Ma. <br />
<br />
(3) For the colliding gravitational wave problem, I will show the existence of weakly regular spacetimes containing geometric singularities across which junction conditions are imposed; joint work with B. Le Floch and G. Veneziano.<br />
<br />

===Joonhyun La===<br />
Title: On a kinetic model of polymeric fluids<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we prove global well-posedness of a system describing behavior of dilute flexible polymeric fluids. This model is based on kinetic theory, and a main difficulty for this system is its multi-scale nature. A new function space, based on moments, is introduced to address this issue, and this function space allows us to deal with larger initial data.<br />
<br />

===Yannick Sire===<br />
Title: Minimizers for the thin one-phase free boundary problem<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider the thin one-phase free boundary problem, associated to minimizing a weighted Dirichlet energy of thefunction in the half-space plus the area of the positivity set of that function restricted to the boundary. I will provide a rather complete picture of the (partial ) regularity of the free boundary, providing content and structure estimates on the singular set of the free boundary when it exists. All of these results hold for the full range of the relevant weight related to an anomalous diffusion on the boundary. The approach does not follow the standard one introduced in the seminal work of Alt and Caffarelli. Instead, the nonlocal nature of the distributional measure associated to a minimizer necessitates arguments which are less reliant on the underlying PDE. This opens several directions of research that I will try to describe. <br />
<br />
===Matthew Schrecker===<br />
Title: Existence theory and Newtonian limit for 1D relativistic Euler equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will present the results of my recent work with Gui-Qiang Chen on the Euler equations in the conditions of special relativity. I will show how the theory of compensated compactness may be used to obtain the existence of entropy solutions to this system. Moreover, it is expected that as the light speed grows to infinity, solutions to the relativistic Euler equations will converge to their classical (Newtonian) counterparts. The theory we develop is also sufficient to demonstrate this convergence rigorously.<br />

Title: On the Lagrangian description of the Sticky Particle flow <br />
<br />
Abstract: R. Hynd has recently proved that for absolutely continuous initial velocities the Sticky Particle system admits solutions described by monotone flow maps in Lagrangian coordinates. We present a generalization of this result to general initial velocities and discuss some consequences. (This is based on ongoing work with M. Suder.)</div>Hunghttps://www.math.wisc.edu/wiki/index.php?title=PDE_Geometric_Analysis_seminar&diff=19013PDE Geometric Analysis seminar2020-02-12T23:16:36Z<p>Hung: /* PDE GA Seminar Schedule Fall 2019-Spring 2020 */</p>

I will provide a rather complete picture of the (partial ) regularity of the free boundary, providing content and structure estimates on the singular set of the free boundary when it exists. All of these results hold for the full range of the relevant weight related to an anomalous diffusion on the boundary. The approach does not follow the standard one introduced in the seminal work of Alt and Caffarelli. Instead, the nonlocal nature of the distributional measure associated to a minimizer necessitates arguments which are less reliant on the underlying PDE. This opens several directions of research that I will try to describe. <br />

Title: Existence theory and Newtonian limit for 1D relativistic Euler equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will present the results of my recent work with Gui-Qiang Chen on the Euler equations in the conditions of special relativity. I will show how the theory of compensated compactness may be used to obtain the existence of entropy solutions to this system. Moreover, it is expected that as the light speed grows to infinity, solutions to the relativistic Euler equations will converge to their classical (Newtonian) counterparts. The theory we develop is also sufficient to demonstrate this convergence rigorously.<br />

Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />

Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).<br />

Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce a recent development in the global well-posedness of the Landau equation (1936) in a general smooth bounded domain, which has been a long-outstanding open problem. This work proves the global stability of the Landau equation in an $L^\infty_{x,v}$ framework with the Coulombic potential in a general smooth bounded domain with the specular reflection boundary condition for initial perturbations of the Maxwellian equilibrium states. Our methods consist of the generalization of the well-posedness theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equation (HJV-2014, HJJ-2018) and the extension of the boundary value problem to a whole space problem, as well as the use of a recent extension of De Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equations (GIMV-2016) and the Morrey estimates (BCM-1996) to further control the velocity derivatives, which ensures the uniqueness. This is a joint work with Y. Guo, H. J. Hwang, and Z. Ouyang.<br />

Title: <br />
Dislocations dynamics: from microscopic models to macroscopic crystal plasticity<br />
<br />
Abstract: Dislocation theory aims at explaining the plastic behavior of materials by the motion of line defects in crystals. Peierls-Nabarro models consist in approximating the geometric motion of these defects by nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations. We study the asymptotic limit of solutions of Peierls-Nabarro equations. Different scalings lead to different models at microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic scale. This is joint work with E. Valdinoci.<br />

Title: From the d'Alembert paradox to the 1984 Kato criteria via the 1941 $1/3$ Kolmogorov law and the 1949 Onsager conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: Several of my recent contributions, with Marie Farge, Edriss Titi, Emile Wiedemann, Piotr and Agneska Gwiadza, were motivated by the following issues: The role of boundary effect in mathematical theory of fluids mechanic and the similarity, in presence of these effects, of the weak convergence in the zero viscosity limit and the statistical theory of turbulence. As a consequence, I will recall the Onsager conjecture and compare it to the issue of anomalous energy dissipation.<br />
<br />
Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.<br />

Title: Two dimensional gravity waves at low regularity: Energy estimates<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider the gravity water wave equations in two space dimensions. Our focus is on sharp cubic energy estimates and low regularity solutions. Precisely, we will introduce techniques to prove a new class of energy estimates, which we call balanced cubic estimates. This yields a key improvement over the earlier cubic estimates of Hunter-Ifrim-Tataru, while preserving their scale invariant character and their position-velocity potential holomorphic coordinate formulation. Even without using Strichartz estimates, these results allow us to significantly lower the Sobolev regularity threshold for local well-posedness. This is joint work with Mihaela Ifrim and Daniel Tataru.<br />

Title: The Uniqueness of Asymptotically Conical Self-Shrinkers in High Codimension.<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider self-shrinking solitons of the mean curvature flow that are smoothly asymptotic to a Riemannian cone in $\mathbb{R}^n$. In 2011, L. Wang proved the uniqueness of self-shrinking ends asymptotic to a cone $C$ in the case of hypersurfaces (codimension 1) by using a backwards uniqueness result for the heat equation due to Escauriaza, Sverak, and Seregin. Later, J. Bernstein proved the same fact using purely elliptic methods. We consider the case of self-shrinkers in high codimension, and outline how to prove the same uniqueness result in this significantly more general case, by using geometric arguments and extending Bernstein’s result.<br />
<br />
===Mathew Langford===<br />
Title: Concavity of the arrival time<br />
<br />
Abstract: We present a simple connection between differential Harnack inequalities for hypersurface flows and natural concavity properties of their time-of-arrival functions. We prove these concavity properties directly for a large class of flows by applying a novel concavity maximum principle argument to the corresponding level set flow equations. In particular, this yields a short proof of Hamilton’s differential Harnack inequality for mean curvature flow and, more generally, Andrews’ differential Harnack inequalities for certain “$\alpha$-inverse-concave” flows.<br />

===Philippe LeFloch===<br />
Title: Nonlinear stability of self-gravitating matter under low decay and weak regularity conditions<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will present recent progress on the global evolution problem for self-gravitating matter. (1) For Einstein's constraint equations, motivated by a scheme proposed by Carlotto and Schoen I will show the existence of asymptotically Euclidean Einstein spaces with low decay; joint work with T. Nguyen. <br />
<br />
(2) For Einstein's evolution equations in the regime near Minkowski spacetime, I will show the global nonlinear stability of massive matter fields; joint work with Y. Ma. <br />
<br />
(3) For the colliding gravitational wave problem, I will show the existence of weakly regular spacetimes containing geometric singularities across which junction conditions are imposed; joint work with B. Le Floch and G. Veneziano.<br />
<br />
<br />
===Joonhyun La===<br />
Title: On a kinetic model of polymeric fluids<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we prove global well-posedness of a system describing behavior of dilute flexible polymeric fluids. This model is based on kinetic theory, and a main difficulty for this system is its multi-scale nature. A new function space, based on moments, is introduced to address this issue, and this function space allows us to deal with larger initial data.<br />

Title: Minimizers for the thin one-phase free boundary problem<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider the thin one-phase free boundary problem, associated to minimizing a weighted Dirichlet energy of thefunction in the half-space plus the area of the positivity set of that function restricted to the boundary. I will provide a rather complete picture of the (partial ) regularity of the free boundary, providing content and structure estimates on the singular set of the free boundary when it exists. All of these results hold for the full range of the relevant weight related to an anomalous diffusion on the boundary. The approach does not follow the standard one introduced in the seminal work of Alt and Caffarelli. Instead, the nonlocal nature of the distributional measure associated to a minimizer necessitates arguments which are less reliant on the underlying PDE. This opens several directions of research that I will try to describe. <br />

Abstract: We present a simple connection between differential Harnack inequalities for hypersurface flows and natural concavity properties of their time-of-arrival functions. We prove these concavity properties directly for a large class of flows by applying a novel concavity maximum principle argument to the corresponding level set flow equations. In particular, this yields a short proof of Hamilton’s differential Harnack inequality for mean curvature flow and, more generally, Andrews’ differential Harnack inequalities for certain “$\alpha$-inverse-concave” flows.<br />

Title: On a kinetic model of polymeric fluids<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we prove global well-posedness of a system describing behavior of dilute flexible polymeric fluids. This model is based on kinetic theory, and a main difficulty for this system is its multi-scale nature. A new function space, based on moments, is introduced to address this issue, and this function space allows us to deal with larger initial data.<br />

Title: Minimizers for the thin one-phase free boundary problem<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider the thin one-phase free boundary problem, associated to minimizing a weighted Dirichlet energy of thefunction in the half-space plus the area of the positivity set of that function restricted to the boundary. I will provide a rather complete picture of the (partial ) regularity of the free boundary, providing content and structure estimates on the singular set of the free boundary when it exists. All of these results hold for the full range of the relevant weight related to an anomalous diffusion on the boundary. The approach does not follow the standard one introduced in the seminal work of Alt and Caffarelli. Instead, the nonlocal nature of the distributional measure associated to a minimizer necessitates arguments which are less reliant on the underlying PDE. This opens several directions of research that I will try to describe. <br />

Title: Existence theory and Newtonian limit for 1D relativistic Euler equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will present the results of my recent work with Gui-Qiang Chen on the Euler equations in the conditions of special relativity. I will show how the theory of compensated compactness may be used to obtain the existence of entropy solutions to this system. Moreover, it is expected that as the light speed grows to infinity, solutions to the relativistic Euler equations will converge to their classical (Newtonian) counterparts. The theory we develop is also sufficient to demonstrate this convergence rigorously.<br />

Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />

Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).<br />

Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce a recent development in the global well-posedness of the Landau equation (1936) in a general smooth bounded domain, which has been a long-outstanding open problem. This work proves the global stability of the Landau equation in an $L^\infty_{x,v}$ framework with the Coulombic potential in a general smooth bounded domain with the specular reflection boundary condition for initial perturbations of the Maxwellian equilibrium states. Our methods consist of the generalization of the well-posedness theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equation (HJV-2014, HJJ-2018) and the extension of the boundary value problem to a whole space problem, as well as the use of a recent extension of De Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equations (GIMV-2016) and the Morrey estimates (BCM-1996) to further control the velocity derivatives, which ensures the uniqueness. This is a joint work with Y. Guo, H. J. Hwang, and Z. Ouyang.<br />

Title: <br />
Dislocations dynamics: from microscopic models to macroscopic crystal plasticity<br />
<br />
Abstract: Dislocation theory aims at explaining the plastic behavior of materials by the motion of line defects in crystals. Peierls-Nabarro models consist in approximating the geometric motion of these defects by nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations. We study the asymptotic limit of solutions of Peierls-Nabarro equations. Different scalings lead to different models at microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic scale. This is joint work with E. Valdinoci.<br />

Title: From the d'Alembert paradox to the 1984 Kato criteria via the 1941 $1/3$ Kolmogorov law and the 1949 Onsager conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: Several of my recent contributions, with Marie Farge, Edriss Titi, Emile Wiedemann, Piotr and Agneska Gwiadza, were motivated by the following issues: The role of boundary effect in mathematical theory of fluids mechanic and the similarity, in presence of these effects, of the weak convergence in the zero viscosity limit and the statistical theory of turbulence. As a consequence, I will recall the Onsager conjecture and compare it to the issue of anomalous energy dissipation.<br />
<br />
Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.<br />

Title: Two dimensional gravity waves at low regularity: Energy estimates<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider the gravity water wave equations in two space dimensions. Our focus is on sharp cubic energy estimates and low regularity solutions. Precisely, we will introduce techniques to prove a new class of energy estimates, which we call balanced cubic estimates. This yields a key improvement over the earlier cubic estimates of Hunter-Ifrim-Tataru, while preserving their scale invariant character and their position-velocity potential holomorphic coordinate formulation. Even without using Strichartz estimates, these results allow us to significantly lower the Sobolev regularity threshold for local well-posedness. This is joint work with Mihaela Ifrim and Daniel Tataru.<br />
<br />
===Ilyas Khan===<br />
Title: The Uniqueness of Asymptotically Conical Self-Shrinkers in High Codimension.<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider self-shrinking solitons of the mean curvature flow that are smoothly asymptotic to a Riemannian cone in $\mathbb{R}^n$. In 2011, L. Wang proved the uniqueness of self-shrinking ends asymptotic to a cone $C$ in the case of hypersurfaces (codimension 1) by using a backwards uniqueness result for the heat equation due to Escauriaza, Sverak, and Seregin. Later, J. Bernstein proved the same fact using purely elliptic methods. We consider the case of self-shrinkers in high codimension, and outline how to prove the same uniqueness result in this significantly more general case, by using geometric arguments and extending Bernstein’s result.<br />

Title: Concavity of the arrival time<br />
<br />
Abstract: We present a simple connection between differential Harnack inequalities for hypersurface flows and natural concavity properties of their time-of-arrival functions. We prove these concavity properties directly for a large class of flows by applying a novel concavity maximum principle argument to the corresponding level set flow equations. In particular, this yields a short proof of Hamilton’s differential Harnack inequality for mean curvature flow and, more generally, Andrews’ differential Harnack inequalities for certain “$\alpha$-inverse-concave” flows.<br />

Title: On Chowla's Conjecture over F_q[T]<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Mobius function in number theory is a sequences of 1s, <br />
-1s, and 0s, which is simple to define and closely related to the <br />
prime numbers. Its behavior seems highly random. Chowla's conjecture <br />
is one precise formalization of this randomness, and has seen recent <br />
work by Matomaki, Radziwill, Tao, and Teravainen making progress on <br />
it. In joint work with Mark Shusterman, we modify this conjecture by <br />
replacing the natural numbers parameterizing this sequence with <br />
polynomials over a finite field. Under mild conditions on the finite <br />
field, we are able to prove a strong form of this conjecture. The <br />
proof is based on taking a geometric perspective on the problem, and <br />
succeeds because we are able to simplify the geometry using a trick <br />
based on the strange properties of polynomial derivatives over finite <br />
fields.<br />

Title: Riemann-Hilbert correspondence and Fukaya categories<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk I am going to discuss the role of Fukaya categories in the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence<br />
for differential, q-difference and elliptic difference equations in dimension one.<br />
This approach not only gives a unified answer for several versions of the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence but also leads to a natural formulation<br />
of the non-abelian Hodge theory in dimension one. It also explains why periodic monopoles<br />
should appear as harmonic objects in this generalized non-abelian Hodge theory.<br />
All that is a part of the bigger project ``Holomorphic Floer theory",<br />
joint with Maxim Kontsevich.<br />

Title: Algebra and geometry in the study of enzymatic cascades<br />
<br />
Abstract: In recent years, techniques from computational and real algebraic geometry have been successfully used to address mathematical challenges in systems biology. The algebraic theory of chemical reaction systems aims to understand their dynamic behavior by taking advantage of the inherent algebraic structure in the kinetic equations, and does not need the determination of the parameters a priori, which can be theoretically or practically impossible.<br />
I will give a gentle introduction to general results based on the network structure. In particular, I will describe a general framework for biological systems, called MESSI systems, that describe Modifications of type Enzyme-Substrate or Swap with Intermediates, and include many networks that model post-translational modifications of proteins inside the cell. I will also outline recent methods to address the important question of multistationarity, in particular in the study of enzymatic cascades, and will point out some of the mathematical challenges that arise from this application.<br />

Title: How to ``localize" the computation?<br />
<br />
It is often desirable to restrict the numerical computation to a local region to achieve best balance between accuracy and affordability in scientific computing. It is important to avoid artifacts and guarantee predictable modelling while artificial boundary conditions have to be introduced to restrict the computation. In this talk, we will discuss some recent understanding on how to achieve such local computation in the context of topological edge states and elliptic random media.<br />

Title: Character vs gender in mathematics and beyond<br />
<br />
Abstract: This presentation will be based on my experience of being a female mathematician, and teaching mathematics at all levels from elementary school to grad school. The question of why women are under-represented in mathematics is complex and there are no simple answers, only many many contributing factors. I will focus on character traits, and argue that if we focus on this rather than gender we can have a more productive and less divisive conversation. To try and focus on characters rather than genders I will introduce gender-neutral character adjectives "ingressive" and "congressive" to replace masculine and feminine. I will share my experience of teaching congressive abstract mathematics to art students, in a congressive way, and the possible effects this could have for everyone in mathematics, not just women.<br />

Title: Generic flat pregeometries<br />
<br />
Abstract: In model theory, the tamest of structures are the strongly minimal ones -- those in which every equation in a single variable has either finitely many or cofinitely many solution. Algebraically closed fields and vector spaces are the canonical examples. Zilber’s conjecture, later refuted by Hrushovski, states that the source of geometric complexity in a strongly minimal structure must be algebraic. The property of "flatness" (strict gammoid) of a geometry (matroid) is that which guarantees Hrushovski's construction is devoid of any associative structure.<br />
The majority of the talk will explain what flatness is, how it should be thought of, and how closely it relates to hypergraphs and Hrushovski's construction method. Model theory makes an appearance only in the second part, where I will share results pertaining to the specific family of geometries arising from Hrushovski's methods.<br />

Title: Harmonic Analysis on GL(n) over Finite Fields.<br />
<br />
Abstract: There are many formulas that express interesting properties of a finite group G in terms of sums over its characters. For evaluating or estimating these sums, one of the most salient quantities to understand is the character ratio:<br />
<br />
trace(ρ(g)) / dim(ρ),<br />
<br />
for an irreducible representation ρ of G and an element g of G. For example, Diaconis and Shahshahani stated a formula of the mentioned type for analyzing certain random walks on G.<br />
<br />
Recently, we discovered that for classical groups G over finite fields there is a natural invariant of representations that provides strong information on the character ratio. We call this invariant rank. <br />
<br />
This talk will discuss the notion of rank for the group GLn over finite fields, demonstrate how it controls the character ratio, and explain how one can apply the results to verify mixing time and rate for certain random walks.<br />

Abstract: Determining the closest point to a model (subset of Euclidean space) is an important problem in many applications in science,<br />
engineering, and statistics. One way to solve this problem is by minimizing the squared Euclidean distance function using a gradient<br />
descent approach. However, when there are multiple local minima, there is no guarantee of convergence to the true global minimizer.<br />
An alternative method is to determine the critical points of an objective function on the model.<br />
In algebraic statistics, the models of interest are algebraic sets, i.e., solution sets to a system of multivariate polynomial equations. In this situation, the number of critical points of the squared Euclidean distance function on the model’s Zariski closure is a topological invariant called the Euclidean distance degree (ED degree).<br />
In this talk, I will present some models from computer vision and statistics that may be described as algebraic sets. Moreover,<br />
I will describe a topological method for determining a Euclidean distance degree and a numerical algebraic geometry approach for<br />
determining critical points of the squared Euclidean distance function.<br />

Abstract: An abelian surface 'splits' if it admits a non-trivial map to some elliptic curve. It is well known that the set of abelian surfaces that split are sparse in the set of all abelian surfaces. Nevertheless, we prove that there are infinitely many split abelian surfaces in arithmetic one-parameter families of generically non-split abelian surfaces. I will describe this work, and if time permits, mention generalizations of this result to the setting of K3 surfaces, as well as applications to the dynamics of hecke orbits. This is joint work with Tang, Maulik-Tang, and Shankar-Tang-Tayou.<br />

Title: Gradient Flows: From PDE to Data Analysis.<br />
<br />
Abstract: Certain diffusive PDEs can be viewed as infinite-dimensional gradient flows. This fact has led to the development of new tools in various areas of mathematics ranging from PDE theory to data science. In this talk, we focus on two different directions: model-driven approaches and data-driven approaches.<br />
In the first part of the talk we use gradient flows for analyzing non-linear and non-local aggregation-diffusion equations when the corresponding energy functionals are not necessarily convex. Moreover, the gradient flow structure enables us to make connections to well-known functional inequalities, revealing possible links between the optimizers of these inequalities and the equilibria of certain aggregation-diffusion PDEs.<br />
In the second part, we use and develop gradient flow theory to design novel tools for data analysis. We draw a connection between gradient flows and Ensemble Kalman methods for parameter estimation. We introduce the Ensemble Kalman Sampler - a derivative-free methodology for model calibration and uncertainty quantification in expensive black-box models. The interacting particle dynamics underlying our algorithm can be approximated by a novel gradient flow structure in a modified Wasserstein metric which reflects particle correlations. The geometry of this modified Wasserstein metric is of independent theoretical interest.<br />

Title: Affine geometry and the Auslander Conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Auslander Conjecture is an analogue of Bieberbach’s theory of Euclidean crystallographic groups in the setting of affine geometry. It predicts that a complete affine manifold (a manifold equipped with a complete torsion-free flat affine connection) which is compact must have virtually solvable fundamental group. The conjecture is known up to dimension six, but is known to fail if the compactness assumption is removed, even in low dimensions. We discuss some history of this conjecture, give some basic examples, and then survey some recent advances in the study of non-compact complete affine manifolds with non-solvable fundamental group. <br />
Tools from the deformation theory of pseudo-Riemannian hyperbolic manifolds and also from higher Teichm&uuml;ller theory will enter the picture.<br />

Title: Random matrix theory and supersymmetry techniques<br />
<br />
Abstract: Starting from the works of Erdos, Yau, Schlein with coauthors, the significant progress in understanding the universal behavior of many random graph and random matrix models were achieved. However for the random matrices with a special structure our understanding is still very limited. In this talk I am going to overview applications of another approach to the study of the local eigenvalues statistics in random matrix theory based on so-called supersymmetry techniques (SUSY). SUSY approach is based on the representation of the determinant as an integral over the Grassmann (anticommuting) variables. Combining this representation with the representation of an inverse determinant as an integral over the Gaussian complex field, SUSY allows to obtain an integral representation for the main spectral characteristics of random matrices such as limiting density, correlation functions, the resolvent's elements, etc. This method is widely (and successfully) used in the physics literature and is potentially very powerful but the rigorous control of the integral representations, which can be obtained by this method, is quite difficult, and it requires powerful analytic and statistical mechanics tools. In this talk we will discuss some recent progress in application of SUSY to the analysis of local spectral characteristics of the prominent ensemble of random band matrices, i.e. random matrices<br />
whose entries become negligible if their distance from the main diagonal exceeds a certain parameter called the band width. <br />

Title: Manifold Learning on Fibre Bundles<br />
<br />
Abstract: Spectral geometry has played an important role in modern geometric data analysis, where the technique is widely known as Laplacian eigenmaps or diffusion maps. In this talk, we present a geometric framework that studies graph representations of complex datasets, where each edge of the graph is equipped with a non-scalar transformation or correspondence. This new framework models such a dataset as a fibre bundle with a connection, and interprets the collection of pairwise functional relations as defining a horizontal diffusion process on the bundle driven by its projection on the base. The eigenstates of this horizontal diffusion process encode the “consistency” among objects in the dataset, and provide a lens through which the geometry of the dataset can be revealed. We demonstrate an application of this geometric framework on evolutionary anthropology.<br />

Title: Intrinsic and extrinsic geometries in several complex variables<br />
<br />
Abstract: A bounded domain in complex Euclidean space, despite being one of the simplest types of manifolds, has a number of interesting geometric structures. When the domain is pseudoconvex, it has a natural intrinsic geometry: the complete Kaehler-Einstein metric constructed by Cheng-Yau and Mok-Yau. When the domain is smoothly bounded, there is also a natural extrinsic structure: the CR-geometry of the boundary. In this talk, I will describe connections between these intrinsic and extrinsic geometries. Then, I will discuss how these connections can lead to new analytic results.<br />

Title: Flag varieties and representations of p-adic groups<br />
<br />
Abstract: In the 1950s, Borel, Weil, and Bott showed that the<br />
irreducible representations of a complex reductive group can be<br />
realized in the cohomology of line bundles on flag varieties. In the<br />
1970s, Deligne and Lusztig constructed a family of subvarieties of<br />
flag varieties whose cohomology realizes the irreducible<br />
representations of reductive groups over finite fields. I will survey<br />
these stories, explain recent progress towards finding geometric<br />
constructions of representations of p-adic groups, and discuss<br />
interactions with the Langlands program.<br />

Title: Singular sets in obstacle problems<br />
<br />
Abstract: One of the most important free boundary problems is the obstacle problem. The regularity of its free boundary has been studied for over half a century. In this talk, we review some classical results as well as exciting new developments. In particular, we discuss the recent resolution of the regularity of the singular set for the fully nonlinear obstacle problem. This talk is based on a joint work with Ovidiu Savin at Columbia University.<br />

Title: Gauge theory and geometric flows<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will give a brief introduction to two major areas of research in differential geometry: gauge theory and geometric flows. I'll then introduce a geometric flow (Yang-Mills flow) arising from a variational problem with origins in physics, which has been studied by geometric analysts since the early 1980s. I'll conclude by discussing my own work on the behavior of Yang-Mills flow in the critical dimension (n = 4).<br />

Title: Challenges in Multivalued Matrix Functions<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this lecture I will discuss multivalued matrix functions that arise in solving various kinds of matrix equations. The matrix logarithm is the prototypical example, and my first interaction with Hans Schneider was about this function. Another example is the Lambert W function of a matrix, which is much less well known but has been attracting recent interest. A theme of the talk is the importance of choosing appropriate principal values and making sure that the correct choices of signs and branches are used,<br />
both in theory and in computation. I will give examples where incorrect results have previously been obtained.<br />
<br />
I focus on matrix inverse trigonometric and inverse hyperbolic functions, beginning by investigating existence and characterization. Turning to the principal values, various functional identities are derived, some of which are new even in the scalar case, including a “round trip” formula that relates acos(cos A) to A and similar formulas for the other inverse functions. Key tools used in the derivations are the matrix unwinding function and the matrix sign function.<br />
<br />
A new inverse scaling and squaring type algorithm employing a Schur decomposition and variable-degree Pade approximation is derived for computing acos, and it is shown how it can also be used to compute asin, acosh, and asinh.<br />

Title: Kazhdan's theorem on metric graphs<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will give an introduction to the concept of canonical (arakelov) metric on a metric graph, which is related to combinatorial questions like the counting of spanning trees, and generalizes the corresponding concept on Riemann surfaces. I will also present a recent result in collaboration with Farbod Shokrieh on the convergence of canonical metric under normal covers.<br />

Title: Geometry and analysis of degenerating Calabi-Yau manifolds<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk concerns a naturally occurring family of degenerating Calabi-Yau manifolds. A primary tool in analyzing their behavior is to combine the recently developed structure theory for Einstein manifolds and multi-scale singularity analysis for degenerating nonlinear PDEs in the collapsed setting. Based on the algebraic degeneration, we will give precise and more quantitative descriptions of singularity formation from both metric and analytic points of view.<br />

Title: Positive geometries and string theory amplitudes<br />
<br />
Abstract: Inspired by developments in quantum field theory, we<br />
recently defined the notion of a positive geometry, a class of spaces<br />
that includes convex polytopes, positive parts of projective toric<br />
varieties, and positive parts of flag varieties. I will discuss some<br />
basic features of the theory and an application to genus zero string<br />
theory amplitudes. As a special case, we obtain the Euler beta<br />
function, familiar to mathematicians, as the "stringy canonical form"<br />
of the closed interval.<br />

Title: What can we compute from solutions to combinatorial problems?<br />
<br />
Abstract: This will be an introductory talk to an exciting current <br />
research area in mathematical logic. Mostly we are interested in <br />
solutions to Ramsey's Theorem. Ramsey's Theorem says for colorings <br />
C of pairs of natural numbers, there is an infinite set H such that <br />
all pairs from H have the same constant color. H is called a homogeneous <br />
set for C. What can we compute from H? If you are not sure, come to <br />
the talk and find out!<br />

Title: Introduction to phase field models and their efficient numerical implementation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk we will provide an introduction to phase field models. We will focus in models<br />
related to the Cahn-Hilliard (CH) type of partial differential equation (PDE). We will discuss the<br />
challenges associated in solving such higher order parabolic problems. We will present several<br />
new numerical methods that are fast and efficient for solving CH or CH-extended type of problems.<br />
The new methods and their energy-stability properties will be discussed and tested with several computational examples commonly found in material science problems. If time allows, we will talk about more applications in which phase field models are useful and applicable.<br />

Title: Hausdorff dimension and gap distribution in billiards<br />
<br />
Abstract: A classical “unfolding” procedure allows one to turn questions about billiard trajectories in a Euclidean polygon into questions about the geodesic flow on a surface equipped with a certain geometric structure. Surprisingly, the flow on the surface is in turn related to the geodesic flow on the classical moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces. Building on recent breakthrough results of Eskin-Mirzakhani-Mohammadi, we prove a large deviations result for Birkhoff averages as well as generalize a classical theorem of Masur on geodesics in the moduli spaces of translation surfaces. <br />

Title: Topological dynamics of countable groups and structures<br />
<br />
Abstract: We give an introduction to the abstract topological dynamics <br />
of topological groups, i.e. the study of the continuous actions of a <br />
topological group on a compact space. We are particularly interested <br />
in the minimal actions, those for which every orbit is dense. <br />
The study of minimal actions is aided by a classical theorem of Ellis, <br />
who proved that for any topological group G, there exists a universal <br />
minimal flow (UMF), a minimal G-action which factors onto every other <br />
minimal G-action. Here, we will focus on two classes of groups: <br />
a countable discrete group and the automorphism group of a countable <br />
first-order structure. In the case of a countable discrete group, <br />
Baire category methods can be used to show that the collection of <br />
minimal flows is quite rich and that the UMF is rather complicated. <br />
For an automorphism group G of a countable structure, combinatorial <br />
methods can be used to show that sometimes, the UMF is trivial, or <br />
equivalently that every continuous action of G on a compact space <br />
admits a global fixed point.<br />

Title: On Bourgain’s counterexample for the Schrödinger maximal function<br />
<br />
Abstract: In 1980, Carleson asked a question in harmonic analysis: to which Sobolev space $H^s$ must an initial data function belong, for a pointwise a.e. convergence result to hold for the solution to the associated linear Schrödinger equation? Over the next decades, many people developed counterexamples to push the (necessary) range of s up, and positive results to push the (sufficient) range of s down. Now, these ranges are finally meeting: Bourgain’s 2016 counterexample showed s < n/(2(n+1)) fails, and Du and Zhang’s 2019 paper shows that s>n/(2(n+1)) suffices. <br />
In this talk, we will give an overview of how to rigorously derive Bourgain’s 2016 counterexample, based on simple facts from number theory. We will show how to build Bourgain’s counterexample starting from “zero knowledge," and how to gradually optimize the set-up to arrive at the final counterexample. The talk will be broadly accessible, particularly if we live up to the claim of starting from “zero knowledge.”<br />

Title: Inverse Problems, Imaging and Tensor Decomposition<br />
<br />
Abstract: Perspectives from computational algebra and optimization are brought <br />
to bear on a scientific application and a data science application. <br />
In the first part of the talk, I will discuss cryo-electron microscopy <br />
(cryo-EM), an imaging technique to determine the 3-D shape of <br />
macromolecules from many noisy 2-D projections, recognized by the 2017 <br />
Chemistry Nobel Prize. Mathematically, cryo-EM presents a <br />
particularly rich inverse problem, with unknown orientations, extreme <br />
noise, big data and conformational heterogeneity. In particular, this <br />
motivates a general framework for statistical estimation under compact <br />
group actions, connecting information theory and group invariant <br />
theory. In the second part of the talk, I will discuss tensor rank <br />
decomposition, a higher-order variant of PCA broadly applicable in <br />
data science. A fast algorithm is introduced and analyzed, combining <br />
ideas of Sylvester and the power method.<br />

Title: Matroids, log-concavity, and expanders<br />
<br />
Abstract: Matroids are combinatorial objects that model various types of independence. They appear several fields mathematics, including graph theory, combinatorial optimization, and algebraic geometry. In this talk, I will introduce the theory of matroids along with the closely related class of polynomials called strongly log-concave polynomials. Strong log-concavity is a functional property of a real multivariate polynomial that translates to useful conditions on its coefficients. Discrete probability distributions defined by these coefficients inherit several of these nice properties. I will discuss the beautiful real and combinatorial geometry underlying these polynomials and describe applications to random walks on the faces of simplicial complexes. Consequences include proofs of Mason's conjecture that the sequence of numbers of independent sets of a matroid is ultra log-concave and the Mihail-Vazirani conjecture that the basis exchange graph of a matroid has expansion at least one. This is based on joint work with Nima Anari, Kuikui Liu, and Shayan Oveis Gharan.<br />

Title: Mass transfer through fluid-structure interactions<br />
<br />
Abstract: The advancement of mathematics is closely associated with new discoveries from physical experiments. On one hand, mathematical tools like numerical simulation can help explain observations from experiments. On the other hand, experimental discoveries of physical phenomena, such as Brownian motion, can inspire the development of new mathematical approaches. In this talk, we focus on the interplay between applied math and experiments involving fluid-structure interactions -- a fascinating topic with both physical relevance and mathematical complexity. One such problem, inspired by geophysical fluid dynamics, is the experimental and numerical study of the dissolution of solid bodies in a fluid flow. The results of this study allow us to sketch mathematical answers to some long standing questions like the formation of stone forests in China and Madagascar, and how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. We will also talk about experimental math problems at the micro-scale, focusing on the mass transport process of diffusiophoresis, where colloidal particles are advected by a concentration gradient of salt solution. Exploiting this phenomenon, we see that colloids are able to navigate a micro-maze that has a salt concentration gradient across the exit and entry points. We further demonstrate that their ability to solve the maze is closely associated with the properties of a harmonic function – the salt concentration.<br />

Title: Definable infinitary combinatorics under determinacy<br />
<br />
Abstract: The axiom of determinacy, AD, states that in any infinite two player integer game of a certain form, one of the two players must have a winning strategy. It is incompatible with the ZFC set theory axioms with choice; however, it is a succinct extension of ZF which implies many subsets of the real line possess familiar regularity properties and eliminates many pathological sets. For instance, AD implies all sets of reals are Lebesgue measurable and every function from the reals to the reals is continuous on a comeager set. Determinacy also implies that the first uncountable cardinal has the strong partition property which can be used to define the partition measures. This talk will give an overview of the axiom of determinacy and will discuss recent results on the infinitary combinatorics surrounding the first uncountable cardinal and its partition measures. I will discuss the almost everywhere continuity phenomenon for functions outputting countable ordinals and the almost-everywhere uniformization results for closed and unbounded subsets of the first uncountable cardinal. These will be used to describe the rich structure of the cardinals below the powerset of the first and second uncountable cardinals under determinacy assumptions and to investigate the ultrapowers by these partition measures.<br />

Title: Fluctuations for products of random matrices<br />
<br />
Abstract: Products of large random matrices appear in many modern applications such as high dimensional statistics (MANOVA estimators), machine learning (Jacobians of neural networks), and population ecology (transition matrices of dynamical systems). Inspired by these situations, this talk concerns global limits and fluctuations of singular values of products of independent random matrices as both the size N and number M of matrices grow. As N grows, I will show for a variety of ensembles that fluctuations of the Lyapunov exponents converge to explicit Gaussian fields which transition from log-correlated for fixed M to having a white noise component for M growing with N. I will sketch our method, which uses multivariate generalizations of the Laplace transform based on the multivariate Bessel function from representation theory.<br />

Title: Quantitative Methods for the Mean Field Limit Problem<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study the mean field limit of large systems of interacting particles. Classical mean field limit results require that the interaction kernels be essentially Lipschitz. To handle more singular interaction kernels is a longstanding and challenging question but which now has some successes. Joint with P.-E. Jabin, we use the relative entropy between the joint law of all particles and the tensorized law at the limit to quantify the convergence from the particle systems towards the macroscopic PDEs. This method requires to prove large deviations estimates for non-continuous potentials modified by the limiting law. But it leads to explicit convergence rates for all marginals. This in particular can be applied to the Biot-Savart law for 2D Navier-Stokes. To treat more general and singular kernels, joint with D. Bresch and P.-E. Jabin, we introduce the modulated free energy, combination of the relative entropy that we had previously developed and of the modulated energy introduced by S. Serfaty. This modulated free energy may be understood as introducing appropriate weights in the relative entropy to cancel the most singular terms involving the divergence of the kernels. Our modulated free energy allows to treat gradient flows with singular potentials which combine large smooth part, small attractive singular part and large repulsive singular part. As an example, a full rigorous derivation (with quantitative estimates) of some chemotaxis models, such as the Patlak-Keller-Segel system in the subcritical regimes, is obtained.<br />

Title: On Chowla's Conjecture over F_q[T]<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Mobius function in number theory is a sequences of 1s, <br />
-1s, and 0s, which is simple to define and closely related to the <br />
prime numbers. Its behavior seems highly random. Chowla's conjecture <br />
is one precise formalization of this randomness, and has seen recent <br />
work by Matomaki, Radziwill, Tao, and Teravainen making progress on <br />
it. In joint work with Mark Shusterman, we modify this conjecture by <br />
replacing the natural numbers parameterizing this sequence with <br />
polynomials over a finite field. Under mild conditions on the finite <br />
field, we are able to prove a strong form of this conjecture. The <br />
proof is based on taking a geometric perspective on the problem, and <br />
succeeds because we are able to simplify the geometry using a trick <br />
based on the strange properties of polynomial derivatives over finite <br />
fields.<br />

Title: Riemann-Hilbert correspondence and Fukaya categories<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk I am going to discuss the role of Fukaya categories in the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence<br />
for differential, q-difference and elliptic difference equations in dimension one.<br />
This approach not only gives a unified answer for several versions of the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence but also leads to a natural formulation<br />
of the non-abelian Hodge theory in dimension one. It also explains why periodic monopoles<br />
should appear as harmonic objects in this generalized non-abelian Hodge theory.<br />
All that is a part of the bigger project ``Holomorphic Floer theory",<br />
joint with Maxim Kontsevich.<br />

Title: Algebra and geometry in the study of enzymatic cascades<br />
<br />
Abstract: In recent years, techniques from computational and real algebraic geometry have been successfully used to address mathematical challenges in systems biology. The algebraic theory of chemical reaction systems aims to understand their dynamic behavior by taking advantage of the inherent algebraic structure in the kinetic equations, and does not need the determination of the parameters a priori, which can be theoretically or practically impossible.<br />
I will give a gentle introduction to general results based on the network structure. In particular, I will describe a general framework for biological systems, called MESSI systems, that describe Modifications of type Enzyme-Substrate or Swap with Intermediates, and include many networks that model post-translational modifications of proteins inside the cell. I will also outline recent methods to address the important question of multistationarity, in particular in the study of enzymatic cascades, and will point out some of the mathematical challenges that arise from this application.<br />

Title: How to ``localize" the computation?<br />
<br />
It is often desirable to restrict the numerical computation to a local region to achieve best balance between accuracy and affordability in scientific computing. It is important to avoid artifacts and guarantee predictable modelling while artificial boundary conditions have to be introduced to restrict the computation. In this talk, we will discuss some recent understanding on how to achieve such local computation in the context of topological edge states and elliptic random media.<br />

Title: Character vs gender in mathematics and beyond<br />
<br />
Abstract: This presentation will be based on my experience of being a female mathematician, and teaching mathematics at all levels from elementary school to grad school. The question of why women are under-represented in mathematics is complex and there are no simple answers, only many many contributing factors. I will focus on character traits, and argue that if we focus on this rather than gender we can have a more productive and less divisive conversation. To try and focus on characters rather than genders I will introduce gender-neutral character adjectives "ingressive" and "congressive" to replace masculine and feminine. I will share my experience of teaching congressive abstract mathematics to art students, in a congressive way, and the possible effects this could have for everyone in mathematics, not just women.<br />

Title: Generic flat pregeometries<br />
<br />
Abstract: In model theory, the tamest of structures are the strongly minimal ones -- those in which every equation in a single variable has either finitely many or cofinitely many solution. Algebraically closed fields and vector spaces are the canonical examples. Zilber’s conjecture, later refuted by Hrushovski, states that the source of geometric complexity in a strongly minimal structure must be algebraic. The property of "flatness" (strict gammoid) of a geometry (matroid) is that which guarantees Hrushovski's construction is devoid of any associative structure.<br />
The majority of the talk will explain what flatness is, how it should be thought of, and how closely it relates to hypergraphs and Hrushovski's construction method. Model theory makes an appearance only in the second part, where I will share results pertaining to the specific family of geometries arising from Hrushovski's methods.<br />

Title: Harmonic Analysis on GL(n) over Finite Fields.<br />
<br />
Abstract: There are many formulas that express interesting properties of a finite group G in terms of sums over its characters. For evaluating or estimating these sums, one of the most salient quantities to understand is the character ratio:<br />
<br />
trace(ρ(g)) / dim(ρ),<br />
<br />
for an irreducible representation ρ of G and an element g of G. For example, Diaconis and Shahshahani stated a formula of the mentioned type for analyzing certain random walks on G.<br />
<br />
Recently, we discovered that for classical groups G over finite fields there is a natural invariant of representations that provides strong information on the character ratio. We call this invariant rank. <br />
<br />
This talk will discuss the notion of rank for the group GLn over finite fields, demonstrate how it controls the character ratio, and explain how one can apply the results to verify mixing time and rate for certain random walks.<br />

Abstract: Determining the closest point to a model (subset of Euclidean space) is an important problem in many applications in science,<br />
engineering, and statistics. One way to solve this problem is by minimizing the squared Euclidean distance function using a gradient<br />
descent approach. However, when there are multiple local minima, there is no guarantee of convergence to the true global minimizer.<br />
An alternative method is to determine the critical points of an objective function on the model.<br />
In algebraic statistics, the models of interest are algebraic sets, i.e., solution sets to a system of multivariate polynomial equations. In this situation, the number of critical points of the squared Euclidean distance function on the model’s Zariski closure is a topological invariant called the Euclidean distance degree (ED degree).<br />
In this talk, I will present some models from computer vision and statistics that may be described as algebraic sets. Moreover,<br />
I will describe a topological method for determining a Euclidean distance degree and a numerical algebraic geometry approach for<br />
determining critical points of the squared Euclidean distance function.<br />

Abstract: An abelian surface 'splits' if it admits a non-trivial map to some elliptic curve. It is well known that the set of abelian surfaces that split are sparse in the set of all abelian surfaces. Nevertheless, we prove that there are infinitely many split abelian surfaces in arithmetic one-parameter families of generically non-split abelian surfaces. I will describe this work, and if time permits, mention generalizations of this result to the setting of K3 surfaces, as well as applications to the dynamics of hecke orbits. This is joint work with Tang, Maulik-Tang, and Shankar-Tang-Tayou.<br />

Title: Gradient Flows: From PDE to Data Analysis.<br />
<br />
Abstract: Certain diffusive PDEs can be viewed as infinite-dimensional gradient flows. This fact has led to the development of new tools in various areas of mathematics ranging from PDE theory to data science. In this talk, we focus on two different directions: model-driven approaches and data-driven approaches.<br />
In the first part of the talk we use gradient flows for analyzing non-linear and non-local aggregation-diffusion equations when the corresponding energy functionals are not necessarily convex. Moreover, the gradient flow structure enables us to make connections to well-known functional inequalities, revealing possible links between the optimizers of these inequalities and the equilibria of certain aggregation-diffusion PDEs.<br />
In the second part, we use and develop gradient flow theory to design novel tools for data analysis. We draw a connection between gradient flows and Ensemble Kalman methods for parameter estimation. We introduce the Ensemble Kalman Sampler - a derivative-free methodology for model calibration and uncertainty quantification in expensive black-box models. The interacting particle dynamics underlying our algorithm can be approximated by a novel gradient flow structure in a modified Wasserstein metric which reflects particle correlations. The geometry of this modified Wasserstein metric is of independent theoretical interest.<br />

Title: Affine geometry and the Auslander Conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Auslander Conjecture is an analogue of Bieberbach’s theory of Euclidean crystallographic groups in the setting of affine geometry. It predicts that a complete affine manifold (a manifold equipped with a complete torsion-free flat affine connection) which is compact must have virtually solvable fundamental group. The conjecture is known up to dimension six, but is known to fail if the compactness assumption is removed, even in low dimensions. We discuss some history of this conjecture, give some basic examples, and then survey some recent advances in the study of non-compact complete affine manifolds with non-solvable fundamental group. <br />
Tools from the deformation theory of pseudo-Riemannian hyperbolic manifolds and also from higher Teichm&uuml;ller theory will enter the picture.<br />

Title: Random matrix theory and supersymmetry techniques<br />
<br />
Abstract: Starting from the works of Erdos, Yau, Schlein with coauthors, the significant progress in understanding the universal behavior of many random graph and random matrix models were achieved. However for the random matrices with a special structure our understanding is still very limited. In this talk I am going to overview applications of another approach to the study of the local eigenvalues statistics in random matrix theory based on so-called supersymmetry techniques (SUSY). SUSY approach is based on the representation of the determinant as an integral over the Grassmann (anticommuting) variables. Combining this representation with the representation of an inverse determinant as an integral over the Gaussian complex field, SUSY allows to obtain an integral representation for the main spectral characteristics of random matrices such as limiting density, correlation functions, the resolvent's elements, etc. This method is widely (and successfully) used in the physics literature and is potentially very powerful but the rigorous control of the integral representations, which can be obtained by this method, is quite difficult, and it requires powerful analytic and statistical mechanics tools. In this talk we will discuss some recent progress in application of SUSY to the analysis of local spectral characteristics of the prominent ensemble of random band matrices, i.e. random matrices<br />
whose entries become negligible if their distance from the main diagonal exceeds a certain parameter called the band width. <br />

Title: Manifold Learning on Fibre Bundles<br />
<br />
Abstract: Spectral geometry has played an important role in modern geometric data analysis, where the technique is widely known as Laplacian eigenmaps or diffusion maps. In this talk, we present a geometric framework that studies graph representations of complex datasets, where each edge of the graph is equipped with a non-scalar transformation or correspondence. This new framework models such a dataset as a fibre bundle with a connection, and interprets the collection of pairwise functional relations as defining a horizontal diffusion process on the bundle driven by its projection on the base. The eigenstates of this horizontal diffusion process encode the “consistency” among objects in the dataset, and provide a lens through which the geometry of the dataset can be revealed. We demonstrate an application of this geometric framework on evolutionary anthropology.<br />

Title: Intrinsic and extrinsic geometries in several complex variables<br />
<br />
Abstract: A bounded domain in complex Euclidean space, despite being one of the simplest types of manifolds, has a number of interesting geometric structures. When the domain is pseudoconvex, it has a natural intrinsic geometry: the complete Kaehler-Einstein metric constructed by Cheng-Yau and Mok-Yau. When the domain is smoothly bounded, there is also a natural extrinsic structure: the CR-geometry of the boundary. In this talk, I will describe connections between these intrinsic and extrinsic geometries. Then, I will discuss how these connections can lead to new analytic results.<br />

<br />
Title: Flag varieties and representations of p-adic groups<br />
<br />
Abstract: In the 1950s, Borel, Weil, and Bott showed that the<br />
irreducible representations of a complex reductive group can be<br />
realized in the cohomology of line bundles on flag varieties. In the<br />
1970s, Deligne and Lusztig constructed a family of subvarieties of<br />
flag varieties whose cohomology realizes the irreducible<br />
representations of reductive groups over finite fields. I will survey<br />
these stories, explain recent progress towards finding geometric<br />
constructions of representations of p-adic groups, and discuss<br />
interactions with the Langlands program.<br />

Title: Singular sets in obstacle problems<br />
<br />
Abstract: One of the most important free boundary problems is the obstacle problem. The regularity of its free boundary has been studied for over half a century. In this talk, we review some classical results as well as exciting new developments. In particular, we discuss the recent resolution of the regularity of the singular set for the fully nonlinear obstacle problem. This talk is based on a joint work with Ovidiu Savin at Columbia University.<br />

Title: Gauge theory and geometric flows<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will give a brief introduction to two major areas of research in differential geometry: gauge theory and geometric flows. I'll then introduce a geometric flow (Yang-Mills flow) arising from a variational problem with origins in physics, which has been studied by geometric analysts since the early 1980s. I'll conclude by discussing my own work on the behavior of Yang-Mills flow in the critical dimension (n = 4).<br />

<br />
Title: Challenges in Multivalued Matrix Functions<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this lecture I will discuss multivalued matrix functions that arise in solving various kinds of matrix equations. The matrix logarithm is the prototypical example, and my first interaction with Hans Schneider was about this function. Another example is the Lambert W function of a matrix, which is much less well known but has been attracting recent interest. A theme of the talk is the importance of choosing appropriate principal values and making sure that the correct choices of signs and branches are used,<br />
both in theory and in computation. I will give examples where incorrect results have previously been obtained.<br />
<br />
I focus on matrix inverse trigonometric and inverse hyperbolic functions, beginning by investigating existence and characterization. Turning to the principal values, various functional identities are derived, some of which are new even in the scalar case, including a “round trip” formula that relates acos(cos A) to A and similar formulas for the other inverse functions. Key tools used in the derivations are the matrix unwinding function and the matrix sign function.<br />
<br />
A new inverse scaling and squaring type algorithm employing a Schur decomposition and variable-degree Pade approximation is derived for computing acos, and it is shown how it can also be used to compute asin, acosh, and asinh.<br />

Title: Kazhdan's theorem on metric graphs<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will give an introduction to the concept of canonical (arakelov) metric on a metric graph, which is related to combinatorial questions like the counting of spanning trees, and generalizes the corresponding concept on Riemann surfaces. I will also present a recent result in collaboration with Farbod Shokrieh on the convergence of canonical metric under normal covers.<br />

Title: Geometry and analysis of degenerating Calabi-Yau manifolds<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk concerns a naturally occurring family of degenerating Calabi-Yau manifolds. A primary tool in analyzing their behavior is to combine the recently developed structure theory for Einstein manifolds and multi-scale singularity analysis for degenerating nonlinear PDEs in the collapsed setting. Based on the algebraic degeneration, we will give precise and more quantitative descriptions of singularity formation from both metric and analytic points of view.<br />

Title: Positive geometries and string theory amplitudes<br />
<br />
Abstract: Inspired by developments in quantum field theory, we<br />
recently defined the notion of a positive geometry, a class of spaces<br />
that includes convex polytopes, positive parts of projective toric<br />
varieties, and positive parts of flag varieties. I will discuss some<br />
basic features of the theory and an application to genus zero string<br />
theory amplitudes. As a special case, we obtain the Euler beta<br />
function, familiar to mathematicians, as the "stringy canonical form"<br />
of the closed interval.<br />
<br />
This talk is based on joint work with Arkani-Hamed, Bai, and He.<br />

Title: What can we compute from solutions to combinatorial problems?<br />
<br />
Abstract: This will be an introductory talk to an exciting current <br />
research area in mathematical logic. Mostly we are interested in <br />
solutions to Ramsey's Theorem. Ramsey's Theorem says for colorings <br />
C of pairs of natural numbers, there is an infinite set H such that <br />
all pairs from H have the same constant color. H is called a homogeneous <br />
set for C. What can we compute from H? If you are not sure, come to <br />
the talk and find out!<br />

<br />
Abstract: In this talk we will provide an introduction to phase field models. We will focus in models<br />
related to the Cahn-Hilliard (CH) type of partial differential equation (PDE). We will discuss the<br />
challenges associated in solving such higher order parabolic problems. We will present several<br />
new numerical methods that are fast and efficient for solving CH or CH-extended type of problems.<br />
The new methods and their energy-stability properties will be discussed and tested with several computational examples commonly found in material science problems. If time allows, we will talk about more applications in which phase field models are useful and applicable.<br />

Title: Hausdorff dimension and gap distribution in billiards<br />
<br />
Abstract: A classical “unfolding” procedure allows one to turn questions about billiard trajectories in a Euclidean polygon into questions about the geodesic flow on a surface equipped with a certain geometric structure. Surprisingly, the flow on the surface is in turn related to the geodesic flow on the classical moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces. Building on recent breakthrough results of Eskin-Mirzakhani-Mohammadi, we prove a large deviations result for Birkhoff averages as well as generalize a classical theorem of Masur on geodesics in the moduli spaces of translation surfaces. <br />

Title: Topological dynamics of countable groups and structures<br />
<br />
Abstract: We give an introduction to the abstract topological dynamics <br />
of topological groups, i.e. the study of the continuous actions of a <br />
topological group on a compact space. We are particularly interested <br />
in the minimal actions, those for which every orbit is dense. <br />
The study of minimal actions is aided by a classical theorem of Ellis, <br />
who proved that for any topological group G, there exists a universal <br />
minimal flow (UMF), a minimal G-action which factors onto every other <br />
minimal G-action. Here, we will focus on two classes of groups: <br />
a countable discrete group and the automorphism group of a countable <br />
first-order structure. In the case of a countable discrete group, <br />
Baire category methods can be used to show that the collection of <br />
minimal flows is quite rich and that the UMF is rather complicated. <br />
For an automorphism group G of a countable structure, combinatorial <br />
methods can be used to show that sometimes, the UMF is trivial, or <br />
equivalently that every continuous action of G on a compact space <br />
admits a global fixed point.<br />

Title: On Bourgain’s counterexample for the Schrödinger maximal function<br />
<br />
Abstract: In 1980, Carleson asked a question in harmonic analysis: to which Sobolev space $H^s$ must an initial data function belong, for a pointwise a.e. convergence result to hold for the solution to the associated linear Schrödinger equation? Over the next decades, many people developed counterexamples to push the (necessary) range of s up, and positive results to push the (sufficient) range of s down. Now, these ranges are finally meeting: Bourgain’s 2016 counterexample showed s < n/(2(n+1)) fails, and Du and Zhang’s 2019 paper shows that s>n/(2(n+1)) suffices. <br />
In this talk, we will give an overview of how to rigorously derive Bourgain’s 2016 counterexample, based on simple facts from number theory. We will show how to build Bourgain’s counterexample starting from “zero knowledge," and how to gradually optimize the set-up to arrive at the final counterexample. The talk will be broadly accessible, particularly if we live up to the claim of starting from “zero knowledge.”<br />

Title: Inverse Problems, Imaging and Tensor Decomposition<br />
<br />
Abstract: Perspectives from computational algebra and optimization are brought <br />
to bear on a scientific application and a data science application. <br />
In the first part of the talk, I will discuss cryo-electron microscopy <br />
(cryo-EM), an imaging technique to determine the 3-D shape of <br />
macromolecules from many noisy 2-D projections, recognized by the 2017 <br />
Chemistry Nobel Prize. Mathematically, cryo-EM presents a <br />
particularly rich inverse problem, with unknown orientations, extreme <br />
noise, big data and conformational heterogeneity. In particular, this <br />
motivates a general framework for statistical estimation under compact <br />
group actions, connecting information theory and group invariant <br />
theory. In the second part of the talk, I will discuss tensor rank <br />
decomposition, a higher-order variant of PCA broadly applicable in <br />
data science. A fast algorithm is introduced and analyzed, combining <br />
ideas of Sylvester and the power method.<br />

Title: Matroids, log-concavity, and expanders<br />
<br />
Abstract: Matroids are combinatorial objects that model various types of independence. They appear several fields mathematics, including graph theory, combinatorial optimization, and algebraic geometry. In this talk, I will introduce the theory of matroids along with the closely related class of polynomials called strongly log-concave polynomials. Strong log-concavity is a functional property of a real multivariate polynomial that translates to useful conditions on its coefficients. Discrete probability distributions defined by these coefficients inherit several of these nice properties. I will discuss the beautiful real and combinatorial geometry underlying these polynomials and describe applications to random walks on the faces of simplicial complexes. Consequences include proofs of Mason's conjecture that the sequence of numbers of independent sets of a matroid is ultra log-concave and the Mihail-Vazirani conjecture that the basis exchange graph of a matroid has expansion at least one. This is based on joint work with Nima Anari, Kuikui Liu, and Shayan Oveis Gharan.<br />

Title: Mass transfer through fluid-structure interactions<br />
<br />
Abstract: The advancement of mathematics is closely associated with new discoveries from physical experiments. On one hand, mathematical tools like numerical simulation can help explain observations from experiments. On the other hand, experimental discoveries of physical phenomena, such as Brownian motion, can inspire the development of new mathematical approaches. In this talk, we focus on the interplay between applied math and experiments involving fluid-structure interactions -- a fascinating topic with both physical relevance and mathematical complexity. One such problem, inspired by geophysical fluid dynamics, is the experimental and numerical study of the dissolution of solid bodies in a fluid flow. The results of this study allow us to sketch mathematical answers to some long standing questions like the formation of stone forests in China and Madagascar, and how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. We will also talk about experimental math problems at the micro-scale, focusing on the mass transport process of diffusiophoresis, where colloidal particles are advected by a concentration gradient of salt solution. Exploiting this phenomenon, we see that colloids are able to navigate a micro-maze that has a salt concentration gradient across the exit and entry points. We further demonstrate that their ability to solve the maze is closely associated with the properties of a harmonic function – the salt concentration.<br />

Title: Definable infinitary combinatorics under determinacy<br />
<br />
Abstract: The axiom of determinacy, AD, states that in any infinite two player integer game of a certain form, one of the two players must have a winning strategy. It is incompatible with the ZFC set theory axioms with choice; however, it is a succinct extension of ZF which implies many subsets of the real line possess familiar regularity properties and eliminates many pathological sets. For instance, AD implies all sets of reals are Lebesgue measurable and every function from the reals to the reals is continuous on a comeager set. Determinacy also implies that the first uncountable cardinal has the strong partition property which can be used to define the partition measures. This talk will give an overview of the axiom of determinacy and will discuss recent results on the infinitary combinatorics surrounding the first uncountable cardinal and its partition measures. I will discuss the almost everywhere continuity phenomenon for functions outputting countable ordinals and the almost-everywhere uniformization results for closed and unbounded subsets of the first uncountable cardinal. These will be used to describe the rich structure of the cardinals below the powerset of the first and second uncountable cardinals under determinacy assumptions and to investigate the ultrapowers by these partition measures.<br />

Title: Fluctuations for products of random matrices<br />
<br />
Abstract: Products of large random matrices appear in many modern applications such as high dimensional statistics (MANOVA estimators), machine learning (Jacobians of neural networks), and population ecology (transition matrices of dynamical systems). Inspired by these situations, this talk concerns global limits and fluctuations of singular values of products of independent random matrices as both the size N and number M of matrices grow. As N grows, I will show for a variety of ensembles that fluctuations of the Lyapunov exponents converge to explicit Gaussian fields which transition from log-correlated for fixed M to having a white noise component for M growing with N. I will sketch our method, which uses multivariate generalizations of the Laplace transform based on the multivariate Bessel function from representation theory.<br />

Title: On Chowla's Conjecture over F_q[T]<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Mobius function in number theory is a sequences of 1s, <br />
-1s, and 0s, which is simple to define and closely related to the <br />
prime numbers. Its behavior seems highly random. Chowla's conjecture <br />
is one precise formalization of this randomness, and has seen recent <br />
work by Matomaki, Radziwill, Tao, and Teravainen making progress on <br />
it. In joint work with Mark Shusterman, we modify this conjecture by <br />
replacing the natural numbers parameterizing this sequence with <br />
polynomials over a finite field. Under mild conditions on the finite <br />
field, we are able to prove a strong form of this conjecture. The <br />
proof is based on taking a geometric perspective on the problem, and <br />
succeeds because we are able to simplify the geometry using a trick <br />
based on the strange properties of polynomial derivatives over finite <br />
fields.<br />

Title: Riemann-Hilbert correspondence and Fukaya categories<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk I am going to discuss the role of Fukaya categories in the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence<br />
for differential, q-difference and elliptic difference equations in dimension one.<br />
This approach not only gives a unified answer for several versions of the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence but also leads to a natural formulation<br />
of the non-abelian Hodge theory in dimension one. It also explains why periodic monopoles<br />
should appear as harmonic objects in this generalized non-abelian Hodge theory.<br />
All that is a part of the bigger project ``Holomorphic Floer theory",<br />
joint with Maxim Kontsevich.<br />

Title: Algebra and geometry in the study of enzymatic cascades<br />
<br />
Abstract: In recent years, techniques from computational and real algebraic geometry have been successfully used to address mathematical challenges in systems biology. The algebraic theory of chemical reaction systems aims to understand their dynamic behavior by taking advantage of the inherent algebraic structure in the kinetic equations, and does not need the determination of the parameters a priori, which can be theoretically or practically impossible.<br />
I will give a gentle introduction to general results based on the network structure. In particular, I will describe a general framework for biological systems, called MESSI systems, that describe Modifications of type Enzyme-Substrate or Swap with Intermediates, and include many networks that model post-translational modifications of proteins inside the cell. I will also outline recent methods to address the important question of multistationarity, in particular in the study of enzymatic cascades, and will point out some of the mathematical challenges that arise from this application.<br />

Title: How to ``localize" the computation?<br />
<br />
It is often desirable to restrict the numerical computation to a local region to achieve best balance between accuracy and affordability in scientific computing. It is important to avoid artifacts and guarantee predictable modelling while artificial boundary conditions have to be introduced to restrict the computation. In this talk, we will discuss some recent understanding on how to achieve such local computation in the context of topological edge states and elliptic random media.<br />

Title: Character vs gender in mathematics and beyond<br />
<br />
Abstract: This presentation will be based on my experience of being a female mathematician, and teaching mathematics at all levels from elementary school to grad school. The question of why women are under-represented in mathematics is complex and there are no simple answers, only many many contributing factors. I will focus on character traits, and argue that if we focus on this rather than gender we can have a more productive and less divisive conversation. To try and focus on characters rather than genders I will introduce gender-neutral character adjectives "ingressive" and "congressive" to replace masculine and feminine. I will share my experience of teaching congressive abstract mathematics to art students, in a congressive way, and the possible effects this could have for everyone in mathematics, not just women.<br />

Title: Generic flat pregeometries<br />
<br />
Abstract: In model theory, the tamest of structures are the strongly minimal ones -- those in which every equation in a single variable has either finitely many or cofinitely many solution. Algebraically closed fields and vector spaces are the canonical examples. Zilber’s conjecture, later refuted by Hrushovski, states that the source of geometric complexity in a strongly minimal structure must be algebraic. The property of "flatness" (strict gammoid) of a geometry (matroid) is that which guarantees Hrushovski's construction is devoid of any associative structure.<br />
The majority of the talk will explain what flatness is, how it should be thought of, and how closely it relates to hypergraphs and Hrushovski's construction method. Model theory makes an appearance only in the second part, where I will share results pertaining to the specific family of geometries arising from Hrushovski's methods.<br />

Title: Harmonic Analysis on GL(n) over Finite Fields.<br />
<br />
Abstract: There are many formulas that express interesting properties of a finite group G in terms of sums over its characters. For evaluating or estimating these sums, one of the most salient quantities to understand is the character ratio:<br />
<br />
trace(ρ(g)) / dim(ρ),<br />
<br />
for an irreducible representation ρ of G and an element g of G. For example, Diaconis and Shahshahani stated a formula of the mentioned type for analyzing certain random walks on G.<br />
<br />
Recently, we discovered that for classical groups G over finite fields there is a natural invariant of representations that provides strong information on the character ratio. We call this invariant rank. <br />
<br />
This talk will discuss the notion of rank for the group GLn over finite fields, demonstrate how it controls the character ratio, and explain how one can apply the results to verify mixing time and rate for certain random walks.<br />

Determining the closest point to a model (subset of Euclidean space) is an important problem in many applications in science,<br />
engineering, and statistics. One way to solve this problem is by minimizing the squared Euclidean distance function using a gradient<br />
descent approach. However, when there are multiple local minima, there is no guarantee of convergence to the true global minimizer.<br />
An alternative method is to determine the critical points of an objective function on the model.<br />
In algebraic statistics, the models of interest are algebraic sets, i.e., solution sets to a system of multivariate polynomial equations. In this situation, the number of critical points of the squared Euclidean distance function on the model’s Zariski closure is a topological invariant called the Euclidean distance degree (ED degree).<br />
In this talk, I will present some models from computer vision and statistics that may be described as algebraic sets. Moreover,<br />
I will describe a topological method for determining a Euclidean distance degree and a numerical algebraic geometry approach for<br />
determining critical points of the squared Euclidean distance function.<br />

An abelian surface 'splits' if it admits a non-trivial map to some elliptic curve. It is well known that the set of abelian surfaces that split are sparse in the set of all abelian surfaces. Nevertheless, we prove that there are infinitely many split abelian surfaces in arithmetic one-parameter families of generically non-split abelian surfaces. I will describe this work, and if time permits, mention generalizations of this result to the setting of K3 surfaces, as well as applications to the dynamics of hecke orbits. This is joint work with Tang, Maulik-Tang, and Shankar-Tang-Tayou.<br />

Title: Gradient Flows: From PDE to Data Analysis.<br />
<br />
Abstract: Certain diffusive PDEs can be viewed as infinite-dimensional gradient flows. This fact has led to the development of new tools in various areas of mathematics ranging from PDE theory to data science. In this talk, we focus on two different directions: model-driven approaches and data-driven approaches.<br />
In the first part of the talk we use gradient flows for analyzing non-linear and non-local aggregation-diffusion equations when the corresponding energy functionals are not necessarily convex. Moreover, the gradient flow structure enables us to make connections to well-known functional inequalities, revealing possible links between the optimizers of these inequalities and the equilibria of certain aggregation-diffusion PDEs.<br />
In the second part, we use and develop gradient flow theory to design novel tools for data analysis. We draw a connection between gradient flows and Ensemble Kalman methods for parameter estimation. We introduce the Ensemble Kalman Sampler - a derivative-free methodology for model calibration and uncertainty quantification in expensive black-box models. The interacting particle dynamics underlying our algorithm can be approximated by a novel gradient flow structure in a modified Wasserstein metric which reflects particle correlations. The geometry of this modified Wasserstein metric is of independent theoretical interest.<br />

Title: Affine geometry and the Auslander Conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Auslander Conjecture is an analogue of Bieberbach’s theory of Euclidean crystallographic groups in the setting of affine geometry. It predicts that a complete affine manifold (a manifold equipped with a complete torsion-free flat affine connection) which is compact must have virtually solvable fundamental group. The conjecture is known up to dimension six, but is known to fail if the compactness assumption is removed, even in low dimensions. We discuss some history of this conjecture, give some basic examples, and then survey some recent advances in the study of non-compact complete affine manifolds with non-solvable fundamental group. <br />
Tools from the deformation theory of pseudo-Riemannian hyperbolic manifolds and also from higher Teichm&uuml;ller theory will enter the picture.<br />

Title: Random matrix theory and supersymmetry techniques<br />
<br />
Abstract: Starting from the works of Erdos, Yau, Schlein with coauthors, the significant progress in understanding the universal behavior of many random graph and random matrix models were achieved. However for the random matrices with a special structure our understanding is still very limited. In this talk I am going to overview applications of another approach to the study of the local eigenvalues statistics in random matrix theory based on so-called supersymmetry techniques (SUSY). SUSY approach is based on the representation of the determinant as an integral over the Grassmann (anticommuting) variables. Combining this representation with the representation of an inverse determinant as an integral over the Gaussian complex field, SUSY allows to obtain an integral representation for the main spectral characteristics of random matrices such as limiting density, correlation functions, the resolvent's elements, etc. This method is widely (and successfully) used in the physics literature and is potentially very powerful but the rigorous control of the integral representations, which can be obtained by this method, is quite difficult, and it requires powerful analytic and statistical mechanics tools. In this talk we will discuss some recent progress in application of SUSY to the analysis of local spectral characteristics of the prominent ensemble of random band matrices, i.e. random matrices<br />
whose entries become negligible if their distance from the main diagonal exceeds a certain parameter called the band width. <br />

Title: Manifold Learning on Fibre Bundles<br />
<br />
Abstract: Spectral geometry has played an important role in modern geometric data analysis, where the technique is widely known as Laplacian eigenmaps or diffusion maps. In this talk, we present a geometric framework that studies graph representations of complex datasets, where each edge of the graph is equipped with a non-scalar transformation or correspondence. This new framework models such a dataset as a fibre bundle with a connection, and interprets the collection of pairwise functional relations as defining a horizontal diffusion process on the bundle driven by its projection on the base. The eigenstates of this horizontal diffusion process encode the “consistency” among objects in the dataset, and provide a lens through which the geometry of the dataset can be revealed. We demonstrate an application of this geometric framework on evolutionary anthropology.<br />

Abstract: A bounded domain in complex Euclidean space, despite being one of the simplest types of manifolds, has a number of interesting geometric structures. When the domain is pseudoconvex, it has a natural intrinsic geometry: the complete Kaehler-Einstein metric constructed by Cheng-Yau and Mok-Yau. When the domain is smoothly bounded, there is also a natural extrinsic structure: the CR-geometry of the boundary. In this talk, I will describe connections between these intrinsic and extrinsic geometries. Then, I will discuss how these connections can lead to new analytic results.<br />

Title: Singular sets in obstacle problems<br />
<br />
Abstract: One of the most important free boundary problems is the obstacle problem. The regularity of its free boundary has been studied for over half a century. In this talk, we review some classical results as well as exciting new developments. In particular, we discuss the recent resolution of the regularity of the singular set for the fully nonlinear obstacle problem. This talk is based on a joint work with Ovidiu Savin at Columbia University.<br />

Title: On Chowla's Conjecture over F_q[T]<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Mobius function in number theory is a sequences of 1s, <br />
-1s, and 0s, which is simple to define and closely related to the <br />
prime numbers. Its behavior seems highly random. Chowla's conjecture <br />
is one precise formalization of this randomness, and has seen recent <br />
work by Matomaki, Radziwill, Tao, and Teravainen making progress on <br />
it. In joint work with Mark Shusterman, we modify this conjecture by <br />
replacing the natural numbers parameterizing this sequence with <br />
polynomials over a finite field. Under mild conditions on the finite <br />
field, we are able to prove a strong form of this conjecture. The <br />
proof is based on taking a geometric perspective on the problem, and <br />
succeeds because we are able to simplify the geometry using a trick <br />
based on the strange properties of polynomial derivatives over finite <br />
fields.<br />

Title: Riemann-Hilbert correspondence and Fukaya categories<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk I am going to discuss the role of Fukaya categories in the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence<br />
for differential, q-difference and elliptic difference equations in dimension one.<br />
This approach not only gives a unified answer for several versions of the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence but also leads to a natural formulation<br />
of the non-abelian Hodge theory in dimension one. It also explains why periodic monopoles<br />
should appear as harmonic objects in this generalized non-abelian Hodge theory.<br />
All that is a part of the bigger project ``Holomorphic Floer theory",<br />
joint with Maxim Kontsevich.<br />

Title: Algebra and geometry in the study of enzymatic cascades<br />
<br />
Abstract: In recent years, techniques from computational and real algebraic geometry have been successfully used to address mathematical challenges in systems biology. The algebraic theory of chemical reaction systems aims to understand their dynamic behavior by taking advantage of the inherent algebraic structure in the kinetic equations, and does not need the determination of the parameters a priori, which can be theoretically or practically impossible.<br />
I will give a gentle introduction to general results based on the network structure. In particular, I will describe a general framework for biological systems, called MESSI systems, that describe Modifications of type Enzyme-Substrate or Swap with Intermediates, and include many networks that model post-translational modifications of proteins inside the cell. I will also outline recent methods to address the important question of multistationarity, in particular in the study of enzymatic cascades, and will point out some of the mathematical challenges that arise from this application.<br />

Title: How to ``localize" the computation?<br />
<br />
It is often desirable to restrict the numerical computation to a local region to achieve best balance between accuracy and affordability in scientific computing. It is important to avoid artifacts and guarantee predictable modelling while artificial boundary conditions have to be introduced to restrict the computation. In this talk, we will discuss some recent understanding on how to achieve such local computation in the context of topological edge states and elliptic random media.<br />

Title: Character vs gender in mathematics and beyond<br />
<br />
Abstract: This presentation will be based on my experience of being a female mathematician, and teaching mathematics at all levels from elementary school to grad school. The question of why women are under-represented in mathematics is complex and there are no simple answers, only many many contributing factors. I will focus on character traits, and argue that if we focus on this rather than gender we can have a more productive and less divisive conversation. To try and focus on characters rather than genders I will introduce gender-neutral character adjectives "ingressive" and "congressive" to replace masculine and feminine. I will share my experience of teaching congressive abstract mathematics to art students, in a congressive way, and the possible effects this could have for everyone in mathematics, not just women.<br />

Title: Generic flat pregeometries<br />
<br />
Abstract: In model theory, the tamest of structures are the strongly minimal ones -- those in which every equation in a single variable has either finitely many or cofinitely many solution. Algebraically closed fields and vector spaces are the canonical examples. Zilber’s conjecture, later refuted by Hrushovski, states that the source of geometric complexity in a strongly minimal structure must be algebraic. The property of "flatness" (strict gammoid) of a geometry (matroid) is that which guarantees Hrushovski's construction is devoid of any associative structure.<br />
The majority of the talk will explain what flatness is, how it should be thought of, and how closely it relates to hypergraphs and Hrushovski's construction method. Model theory makes an appearance only in the second part, where I will share results pertaining to the specific family of geometries arising from Hrushovski's methods.<br />

Title: Harmonic Analysis on GL(n) over Finite Fields.<br />
<br />
Abstract: There are many formulas that express interesting properties of a finite group G in terms of sums over its characters. For evaluating or estimating these sums, one of the most salient quantities to understand is the character ratio:<br />
<br />
trace(ρ(g)) / dim(ρ),<br />
<br />
for an irreducible representation ρ of G and an element g of G. For example, Diaconis and Shahshahani stated a formula of the mentioned type for analyzing certain random walks on G.<br />
<br />
Recently, we discovered that for classical groups G over finite fields there is a natural invariant of representations that provides strong information on the character ratio. We call this invariant rank. <br />
<br />
This talk will discuss the notion of rank for the group GLn over finite fields, demonstrate how it controls the character ratio, and explain how one can apply the results to verify mixing time and rate for certain random walks.<br />

Determining the closest point to a model (subset of Euclidean space) is an important problem in many applications in science,<br />
engineering, and statistics. One way to solve this problem is by minimizing the squared Euclidean distance function using a gradient<br />
descent approach. However, when there are multiple local minima, there is no guarantee of convergence to the true global minimizer.<br />
An alternative method is to determine the critical points of an objective function on the model.<br />
In algebraic statistics, the models of interest are algebraic sets, i.e., solution sets to a system of multivariate polynomial equations. In this situation, the number of critical points of the squared Euclidean distance function on the model’s Zariski closure is a topological invariant called the Euclidean distance degree (ED degree).<br />
In this talk, I will present some models from computer vision and statistics that may be described as algebraic sets. Moreover,<br />
I will describe a topological method for determining a Euclidean distance degree and a numerical algebraic geometry approach for<br />
determining critical points of the squared Euclidean distance function.<br />

An abelian surface 'splits' if it admits a non-trivial map to some elliptic curve. It is well known that the set of abelian surfaces that split are sparse in the set of all abelian surfaces. Nevertheless, we prove that there are infinitely many split abelian surfaces in arithmetic one-parameter families of generically non-split abelian surfaces. I will describe this work, and if time permits, mention generalizations of this result to the setting of K3 surfaces, as well as applications to the dynamics of hecke orbits. This is joint work with Tang, Maulik-Tang, and Shankar-Tang-Tayou.<br />

Title: Gradient Flows: From PDE to Data Analysis.<br />
<br />
Abstract: Certain diffusive PDEs can be viewed as infinite-dimensional gradient flows. This fact has led to the development of new tools in various areas of mathematics ranging from PDE theory to data science. In this talk, we focus on two different directions: model-driven approaches and data-driven approaches.<br />
In the first part of the talk we use gradient flows for analyzing non-linear and non-local aggregation-diffusion equations when the corresponding energy functionals are not necessarily convex. Moreover, the gradient flow structure enables us to make connections to well-known functional inequalities, revealing possible links between the optimizers of these inequalities and the equilibria of certain aggregation-diffusion PDEs.<br />
In the second part, we use and develop gradient flow theory to design novel tools for data analysis. We draw a connection between gradient flows and Ensemble Kalman methods for parameter estimation. We introduce the Ensemble Kalman Sampler - a derivative-free methodology for model calibration and uncertainty quantification in expensive black-box models. The interacting particle dynamics underlying our algorithm can be approximated by a novel gradient flow structure in a modified Wasserstein metric which reflects particle correlations. The geometry of this modified Wasserstein metric is of independent theoretical interest.<br />

Title: Affine geometry and the Auslander Conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Auslander Conjecture is an analogue of Bieberbach’s theory of Euclidean crystallographic groups in the setting of affine geometry. It predicts that a complete affine manifold (a manifold equipped with a complete torsion-free flat affine connection) which is compact must have virtually solvable fundamental group. The conjecture is known up to dimension six, but is known to fail if the compactness assumption is removed, even in low dimensions. We discuss some history of this conjecture, give some basic examples, and then survey some recent advances in the study of non-compact complete affine manifolds with non-solvable fundamental group. <br />
Tools from the deformation theory of pseudo-Riemannian hyperbolic manifolds and also from higher Teichm&uuml;ller theory will enter the picture.<br />

Title: Random matrix theory and supersymmetry techniques<br />
<br />
Abstract: Starting from the works of Erdos, Yau, Schlein with coauthors, the significant progress in understanding the universal behavior of many random graph and random matrix models were achieved. However for the random matrices with a special structure our understanding is still very limited. In this talk I am going to overview applications of another approach to the study of the local eigenvalues statistics in random matrix theory based on so-called supersymmetry techniques (SUSY). SUSY approach is based on the representation of the determinant as an integral over the Grassmann (anticommuting) variables. Combining this representation with the representation of an inverse determinant as an integral over the Gaussian complex field, SUSY allows to obtain an integral representation for the main spectral characteristics of random matrices such as limiting density, correlation functions, the resolvent's elements, etc. This method is widely (and successfully) used in the physics literature and is potentially very powerful but the rigorous control of the integral representations, which can be obtained by this method, is quite difficult, and it requires powerful analytic and statistical mechanics tools. In this talk we will discuss some recent progress in application of SUSY to the analysis of local spectral characteristics of the prominent ensemble of random band matrices, i.e. random matrices<br />
whose entries become negligible if their distance from the main diagonal exceeds a certain parameter called the band width. <br />

Title: Manifold Learning on Fibre Bundles<br />
<br />
Abstract: Spectral geometry has played an important role in modern geometric data analysis, where the technique is widely known as Laplacian eigenmaps or diffusion maps. In this talk, we present a geometric framework that studies graph representations of complex datasets, where each edge of the graph is equipped with a non-scalar transformation or correspondence. This new framework models such a dataset as a fibre bundle with a connection, and interprets the collection of pairwise functional relations as defining a horizontal diffusion process on the bundle driven by its projection on the base. The eigenstates of this horizontal diffusion process encode the “consistency” among objects in the dataset, and provide a lens through which the geometry of the dataset can be revealed. We demonstrate an application of this geometric framework on evolutionary anthropology.<br />

Title: On Chowla's Conjecture over F_q[T]<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Mobius function in number theory is a sequences of 1s, <br />
-1s, and 0s, which is simple to define and closely related to the <br />
prime numbers. Its behavior seems highly random. Chowla's conjecture <br />
is one precise formalization of this randomness, and has seen recent <br />
work by Matomaki, Radziwill, Tao, and Teravainen making progress on <br />
it. In joint work with Mark Shusterman, we modify this conjecture by <br />
replacing the natural numbers parameterizing this sequence with <br />
polynomials over a finite field. Under mild conditions on the finite <br />
field, we are able to prove a strong form of this conjecture. The <br />
proof is based on taking a geometric perspective on the problem, and <br />
succeeds because we are able to simplify the geometry using a trick <br />
based on the strange properties of polynomial derivatives over finite <br />
fields.<br />

Title: Riemann-Hilbert correspondence and Fukaya categories<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk I am going to discuss the role of Fukaya categories in the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence<br />
for differential, q-difference and elliptic difference equations in dimension one.<br />
This approach not only gives a unified answer for several versions of the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence but also leads to a natural formulation<br />
of the non-abelian Hodge theory in dimension one. It also explains why periodic monopoles<br />
should appear as harmonic objects in this generalized non-abelian Hodge theory.<br />
All that is a part of the bigger project ``Holomorphic Floer theory",<br />
joint with Maxim Kontsevich.<br />

Title: Algebra and geometry in the study of enzymatic cascades<br />
<br />
Abstract: In recent years, techniques from computational and real algebraic geometry have been successfully used to address mathematical challenges in systems biology. The algebraic theory of chemical reaction systems aims to understand their dynamic behavior by taking advantage of the inherent algebraic structure in the kinetic equations, and does not need the determination of the parameters a priori, which can be theoretically or practically impossible.<br />
I will give a gentle introduction to general results based on the network structure. In particular, I will describe a general framework for biological systems, called MESSI systems, that describe Modifications of type Enzyme-Substrate or Swap with Intermediates, and include many networks that model post-translational modifications of proteins inside the cell. I will also outline recent methods to address the important question of multistationarity, in particular in the study of enzymatic cascades, and will point out some of the mathematical challenges that arise from this application.<br />

Title: How to ``localize" the computation?<br />
<br />
It is often desirable to restrict the numerical computation to a local region to achieve best balance between accuracy and affordability in scientific computing. It is important to avoid artifacts and guarantee predictable modelling while artificial boundary conditions have to be introduced to restrict the computation. In this talk, we will discuss some recent understanding on how to achieve such local computation in the context of topological edge states and elliptic random media.<br />

Title: Character vs gender in mathematics and beyond<br />
<br />
Abstract: This presentation will be based on my experience of being a female mathematician, and teaching mathematics at all levels from elementary school to grad school. The question of why women are under-represented in mathematics is complex and there are no simple answers, only many many contributing factors. I will focus on character traits, and argue that if we focus on this rather than gender we can have a more productive and less divisive conversation. To try and focus on characters rather than genders I will introduce gender-neutral character adjectives "ingressive" and "congressive" to replace masculine and feminine. I will share my experience of teaching congressive abstract mathematics to art students, in a congressive way, and the possible effects this could have for everyone in mathematics, not just women.<br />

Title: Generic flat pregeometries<br />
<br />
Abstract: In model theory, the tamest of structures are the strongly minimal ones -- those in which every equation in a single variable has either finitely many or cofinitely many solution. Algebraically closed fields and vector spaces are the canonical examples. Zilber’s conjecture, later refuted by Hrushovski, states that the source of geometric complexity in a strongly minimal structure must be algebraic. The property of "flatness" (strict gammoid) of a geometry (matroid) is that which guarantees Hrushovski's construction is devoid of any associative structure.<br />
The majority of the talk will explain what flatness is, how it should be thought of, and how closely it relates to hypergraphs and Hrushovski's construction method. Model theory makes an appearance only in the second part, where I will share results pertaining to the specific family of geometries arising from Hrushovski's methods.<br />

Title: Harmonic Analysis on GL(n) over Finite Fields.<br />
<br />
Abstract: There are many formulas that express interesting properties of a finite group G in terms of sums over its characters. For evaluating or estimating these sums, one of the most salient quantities to understand is the character ratio:<br />
<br />
trace(ρ(g)) / dim(ρ),<br />
<br />
for an irreducible representation ρ of G and an element g of G. For example, Diaconis and Shahshahani stated a formula of the mentioned type for analyzing certain random walks on G.<br />
<br />
Recently, we discovered that for classical groups G over finite fields there is a natural invariant of representations that provides strong information on the character ratio. We call this invariant rank. <br />
<br />
This talk will discuss the notion of rank for the group GLn over finite fields, demonstrate how it controls the character ratio, and explain how one can apply the results to verify mixing time and rate for certain random walks.<br />

Determining the closest point to a model (subset of Euclidean space) is an important problem in many applications in science,<br />
engineering, and statistics. One way to solve this problem is by minimizing the squared Euclidean distance function using a gradient<br />
descent approach. However, when there are multiple local minima, there is no guarantee of convergence to the true global minimizer.<br />
An alternative method is to determine the critical points of an objective function on the model.<br />
In algebraic statistics, the models of interest are algebraic sets, i.e., solution sets to a system of multivariate polynomial equations. In this situation, the number of critical points of the squared Euclidean distance function on the model’s Zariski closure is a topological invariant called the Euclidean distance degree (ED degree).<br />
In this talk, I will present some models from computer vision and statistics that may be described as algebraic sets. Moreover,<br />
I will describe a topological method for determining a Euclidean distance degree and a numerical algebraic geometry approach for<br />
determining critical points of the squared Euclidean distance function.<br />

An abelian surface 'splits' if it admits a non-trivial map to some elliptic curve. It is well known that the set of abelian surfaces that split are sparse in the set of all abelian surfaces. Nevertheless, we prove that there are infinitely many split abelian surfaces in arithmetic one-parameter families of generically non-split abelian surfaces. I will describe this work, and if time permits, mention generalizations of this result to the setting of K3 surfaces, as well as applications to the dynamics of hecke orbits. This is joint work with Tang, Maulik-Tang, and Shankar-Tang-Tayou.<br />

Title: Gradient Flows: From PDE to Data Analysis.<br />
<br />
Abstract: Certain diffusive PDEs can be viewed as infinite-dimensional gradient flows. This fact has led to the development of new tools in various areas of mathematics ranging from PDE theory to data science. In this talk, we focus on two different directions: model-driven approaches and data-driven approaches.<br />
In the first part of the talk we use gradient flows for analyzing non-linear and non-local aggregation-diffusion equations when the corresponding energy functionals are not necessarily convex. Moreover, the gradient flow structure enables us to make connections to well-known functional inequalities, revealing possible links between the optimizers of these inequalities and the equilibria of certain aggregation-diffusion PDEs.<br />
In the second part, we use and develop gradient flow theory to design novel tools for data analysis. We draw a connection between gradient flows and Ensemble Kalman methods for parameter estimation. We introduce the Ensemble Kalman Sampler - a derivative-free methodology for model calibration and uncertainty quantification in expensive black-box models. The interacting particle dynamics underlying our algorithm can be approximated by a novel gradient flow structure in a modified Wasserstein metric which reflects particle correlations. The geometry of this modified Wasserstein metric is of independent theoretical interest.<br />

Title: Affine geometry and the Auslander Conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Auslander Conjecture is an analogue of Bieberbach’s theory of Euclidean crystallographic groups in the setting of affine geometry. It predicts that a complete affine manifold (a manifold equipped with a complete torsion-free flat affine connection) which is compact must have virtually solvable fundamental group. The conjecture is known up to dimension six, but is known to fail if the compactness assumption is removed, even in low dimensions. We discuss some history of this conjecture, give some basic examples, and then survey some recent advances in the study of non-compact complete affine manifolds with non-solvable fundamental group. <br />
Tools from the deformation theory of pseudo-Riemannian hyperbolic manifolds and also from higher Teichm&uuml;ller theory will enter the picture.<br />

Title: Random matrix theory and supersymmetry techniques<br />
<br />
Abstract: Starting from the works of Erdos, Yau, Schlein with coauthors, the significant progress in understanding the universal behavior of many random graph and random matrix models were achieved. However for the random matrices with a special structure our understanding is still very limited. In this talk I am going to overview applications of another approach to the study of the local eigenvalues statistics in random matrix theory based on so-called supersymmetry techniques (SUSY). SUSY approach is based on the representation of the determinant as an integral over the Grassmann (anticommuting) variables. Combining this representation with the representation of an inverse determinant as an integral over the Gaussian complex field, SUSY allows to obtain an integral representation for the main spectral characteristics of random matrices such as limiting density, correlation functions, the resolvent's elements, etc. This method is widely (and successfully) used in the physics literature and is potentially very powerful but the rigorous control of the integral representations, which can be obtained by this method, is quite difficult, and it requires powerful analytic and statistical mechanics tools. In this talk we will discuss some recent progress in application of SUSY to the analysis of local spectral characteristics of the prominent ensemble of random band matrices, i.e. random matrices<br />
whose entries become negligible if their distance from the main diagonal exceeds a certain parameter called the band width. <br />

Title: Manifold Learning on Fibre Bundles<br />
<br />
Abstract: Spectral geometry has played an important role in modern geometric data analysis, where the technique is widely known as Laplacian eigenmaps or diffusion maps. In this talk, we present a geometric framework that studies graph representations of complex datasets, where each edge of the graph is equipped with a non-scalar transformation or correspondence. This new framework models such a dataset as a fibre bundle with a connection, and interprets the collection of pairwise functional relations as defining a horizontal diffusion process on the bundle driven by its projection on the base. The eigenstates of this horizontal diffusion process encode the “consistency” among objects in the dataset, and provide a lens through which the geometry of the dataset can be revealed. We demonstrate an application of this geometric framework on evolutionary anthropology.<br />

Title: Intrinsic and extrinsic geometries in several complex variables<br />
<br />
Abstract: A bounded domain in complex Euclidean space, despite being one of the simplest types of manifolds, has a number of interesting geometric structures. When the domain is pseudoconvex, it has a natural intrinsic geometry: the complete Kaehler-Einstein metric constructed by Cheng-Yau and Mok-Yau. When the domain is smoothly bounded, there is also a natural extrinsic structure: the CR-geometry of the boundary. In this talk, I will describe connections between these intrinsic and extrinsic geometries. Then, I will discuss how these connections can lead to new analytic results.<br />

Title: Singular sets in obstacle problems<br />
<br />
Abstract: One of the most important free boundary problems is the obstacle problem. The regularity of its free boundary has been studied for over half a century. In this talk, we review some classical results as well as exciting new developments. In particular, we discuss the recent resolution of the regularity of the singular set for the fully nonlinear obstacle problem. This talk is based on a joint work with Ovidiu Savin at Columbia University.<br />

Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />

Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).<br />

Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce a recent development in the global well-posedness of the Landau equation (1936) in a general smooth bounded domain, which has been a long-outstanding open problem. This work proves the global stability of the Landau equation in an $L^\infty_{x,v}$ framework with the Coulombic potential in a general smooth bounded domain with the specular reflection boundary condition for initial perturbations of the Maxwellian equilibrium states. Our methods consist of the generalization of the well-posedness theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equation (HJV-2014, HJJ-2018) and the extension of the boundary value problem to a whole space problem, as well as the use of a recent extension of De Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equations (GIMV-2016) and the Morrey estimates (BCM-1996) to further control the velocity derivatives, which ensures the uniqueness. This is a joint work with Y. Guo, H. J. Hwang, and Z. Ouyang.<br />

Title: <br />
Dislocations dynamics: from microscopic models to macroscopic crystal plasticity<br />
<br />
Abstract: Dislocation theory aims at explaining the plastic behavior of materials by the motion of line defects in crystals. Peierls-Nabarro models consist in approximating the geometric motion of these defects by nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations. We study the asymptotic limit of solutions of Peierls-Nabarro equations. Different scalings lead to different models at microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic scale. This is joint work with E. Valdinoci.<br />

Title: From the d'Alembert paradox to the 1984 Kato criteria via the 1941 $1/3$ Kolmogorov law and the 1949 Onsager conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: Several of my recent contributions, with Marie Farge, Edriss Titi, Emile Wiedemann, Piotr and Agneska Gwiadza, were motivated by the following issues: The role of boundary effect in mathematical theory of fluids mechanic and the similarity, in presence of these effects, of the weak convergence in the zero viscosity limit and the statistical theory of turbulence. As a consequence, I will recall the Onsager conjecture and compare it to the issue of anomalous energy dissipation.<br />
<br />
Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.<br />

Title: Two dimensional gravity waves at low regularity: Energy estimates<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider the gravity water wave equations in two space dimensions. Our focus is on sharp cubic energy estimates and low regularity solutions. Precisely, we will introduce techniques to prove a new class of energy estimates, which we call balanced cubic estimates. This yields a key improvement over the earlier cubic estimates of Hunter-Ifrim-Tataru, while preserving their scale invariant character and their position-velocity potential holomorphic coordinate formulation. Even without using Strichartz estimates, these results allow us to significantly lower the Sobolev regularity threshold for local well-posedness. This is joint work with Mihaela Ifrim and Daniel Tataru.<br />

Title: The Uniqueness of Asymptotically Conical Self-Shrinkers in High Codimension.<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider self-shrinking solitons of the mean curvature flow that are smoothly asymptotic to a Riemannian cone in $\mathbb{R}^n$. In 2011, L. Wang proved the uniqueness of self-shrinking ends asymptotic to a cone $C$ in the case of hypersurfaces (codimension 1) by using a backwards uniqueness result for the heat equation due to Escauriaza, Sverak, and Seregin. Later, J. Bernstein proved the same fact using purely elliptic methods. We consider the case of self-shrinkers in high codimension, and outline how to prove the same uniqueness result in this significantly more general case, by using geometric arguments and extending Bernstein’s result.</div>Hunghttps://www.math.wisc.edu/wiki/index.php?title=Colloquia&diff=18456Colloquia2019-11-20T17:17:28Z<p>Hung: /* Fall 2019 */</p>

Title: On Chowla's Conjecture over F_q[T]<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Mobius function in number theory is a sequences of 1s, <br />
-1s, and 0s, which is simple to define and closely related to the <br />
prime numbers. Its behavior seems highly random. Chowla's conjecture <br />
is one precise formalization of this randomness, and has seen recent <br />
work by Matomaki, Radziwill, Tao, and Teravainen making progress on <br />
it. In joint work with Mark Shusterman, we modify this conjecture by <br />
replacing the natural numbers parameterizing this sequence with <br />
polynomials over a finite field. Under mild conditions on the finite <br />
field, we are able to prove a strong form of this conjecture. The <br />
proof is based on taking a geometric perspective on the problem, and <br />
succeeds because we are able to simplify the geometry using a trick <br />
based on the strange properties of polynomial derivatives over finite <br />
fields.<br />

Title: Riemann-Hilbert correspondence and Fukaya categories<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk I am going to discuss the role of Fukaya categories in the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence<br />
for differential, q-difference and elliptic difference equations in dimension one.<br />
This approach not only gives a unified answer for several versions of the Riemann-Hilbert correspondence but also leads to a natural formulation<br />
of the non-abelian Hodge theory in dimension one. It also explains why periodic monopoles<br />
should appear as harmonic objects in this generalized non-abelian Hodge theory.<br />
All that is a part of the bigger project ``Holomorphic Floer theory",<br />
joint with Maxim Kontsevich.<br />

Title: Algebra and geometry in the study of enzymatic cascades<br />
<br />
Abstract: In recent years, techniques from computational and real algebraic geometry have been successfully used to address mathematical challenges in systems biology. The algebraic theory of chemical reaction systems aims to understand their dynamic behavior by taking advantage of the inherent algebraic structure in the kinetic equations, and does not need the determination of the parameters a priori, which can be theoretically or practically impossible.<br />
I will give a gentle introduction to general results based on the network structure. In particular, I will describe a general framework for biological systems, called MESSI systems, that describe Modifications of type Enzyme-Substrate or Swap with Intermediates, and include many networks that model post-translational modifications of proteins inside the cell. I will also outline recent methods to address the important question of multistationarity, in particular in the study of enzymatic cascades, and will point out some of the mathematical challenges that arise from this application.<br />

Title: How to ``localize" the computation?<br />
<br />
It is often desirable to restrict the numerical computation to a local region to achieve best balance between accuracy and affordability in scientific computing. It is important to avoid artifacts and guarantee predictable modelling while artificial boundary conditions have to be introduced to restrict the computation. In this talk, we will discuss some recent understanding on how to achieve such local computation in the context of topological edge states and elliptic random media.<br />

Title: Character vs gender in mathematics and beyond<br />
<br />
Abstract: This presentation will be based on my experience of being a female mathematician, and teaching mathematics at all levels from elementary school to grad school. The question of why women are under-represented in mathematics is complex and there are no simple answers, only many many contributing factors. I will focus on character traits, and argue that if we focus on this rather than gender we can have a more productive and less divisive conversation. To try and focus on characters rather than genders I will introduce gender-neutral character adjectives "ingressive" and "congressive" to replace masculine and feminine. I will share my experience of teaching congressive abstract mathematics to art students, in a congressive way, and the possible effects this could have for everyone in mathematics, not just women.<br />

Title: Generic flat pregeometries<br />
<br />
Abstract: In model theory, the tamest of structures are the strongly minimal ones -- those in which every equation in a single variable has either finitely many or cofinitely many solution. Algebraically closed fields and vector spaces are the canonical examples. Zilber’s conjecture, later refuted by Hrushovski, states that the source of geometric complexity in a strongly minimal structure must be algebraic. The property of "flatness" (strict gammoid) of a geometry (matroid) is that which guarantees Hrushovski's construction is devoid of any associative structure.<br />
The majority of the talk will explain what flatness is, how it should be thought of, and how closely it relates to hypergraphs and Hrushovski's construction method. Model theory makes an appearance only in the second part, where I will share results pertaining to the specific family of geometries arising from Hrushovski's methods.<br />

Title: Harmonic Analysis on GL(n) over Finite Fields.<br />
<br />
Abstract: There are many formulas that express interesting properties of a finite group G in terms of sums over its characters. For evaluating or estimating these sums, one of the most salient quantities to understand is the character ratio:<br />
<br />
trace(ρ(g)) / dim(ρ),<br />
<br />
for an irreducible representation ρ of G and an element g of G. For example, Diaconis and Shahshahani stated a formula of the mentioned type for analyzing certain random walks on G.<br />
<br />
Recently, we discovered that for classical groups G over finite fields there is a natural invariant of representations that provides strong information on the character ratio. We call this invariant rank. <br />
<br />
This talk will discuss the notion of rank for the group GLn over finite fields, demonstrate how it controls the character ratio, and explain how one can apply the results to verify mixing time and rate for certain random walks.<br />

Determining the closest point to a model (subset of Euclidean space) is an important problem in many applications in science,<br />
engineering, and statistics. One way to solve this problem is by minimizing the squared Euclidean distance function using a gradient<br />
descent approach. However, when there are multiple local minima, there is no guarantee of convergence to the true global minimizer.<br />
An alternative method is to determine the critical points of an objective function on the model.<br />
In algebraic statistics, the models of interest are algebraic sets, i.e., solution sets to a system of multivariate polynomial equations. In this situation, the number of critical points of the squared Euclidean distance function on the model’s Zariski closure is a topological invariant called the Euclidean distance degree (ED degree).<br />
In this talk, I will present some models from computer vision and statistics that may be described as algebraic sets. Moreover,<br />
I will describe a topological method for determining a Euclidean distance degree and a numerical algebraic geometry approach for<br />
determining critical points of the squared Euclidean distance function.<br />
<br />

An abelian surface 'splits' if it admits a non-trivial map to some elliptic curve. It is well known that the set of abelian surfaces that split are sparse in the set of all abelian surfaces. Nevertheless, we prove that there are infinitely many split abelian surfaces in arithmetic one-parameter families of generically non-split abelian surfaces. I will describe this work, and if time permits, mention generalizations of this result to the setting of K3 surfaces, as well as applications to the dynamics of hecke orbits. This is joint work with Tang, Maulik-Tang, and Shankar-Tang-Tayou.<br />

Title: Gradient Flows: From PDE to Data Analysis.<br />
<br />
Abstract: Certain diffusive PDEs can be viewed as infinite-dimensional gradient flows. This fact has led to the development of new tools in various areas of mathematics ranging from PDE theory to data science. In this talk, we focus on two different directions: model-driven approaches and data-driven approaches.<br />
In the first part of the talk we use gradient flows for analyzing non-linear and non-local aggregation-diffusion equations when the corresponding energy functionals are not necessarily convex. Moreover, the gradient flow structure enables us to make connections to well-known functional inequalities, revealing possible links between the optimizers of these inequalities and the equilibria of certain aggregation-diffusion PDEs.<br />
In the second part, we use and develop gradient flow theory to design novel tools for data analysis. We draw a connection between gradient flows and Ensemble Kalman methods for parameter estimation. We introduce the Ensemble Kalman Sampler - a derivative-free methodology for model calibration and uncertainty quantification in expensive black-box models. The interacting particle dynamics underlying our algorithm can be approximated by a novel gradient flow structure in a modified Wasserstein metric which reflects particle correlations. The geometry of this modified Wasserstein metric is of independent theoretical interest.<br />

Title: Affine geometry and the Auslander Conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Auslander Conjecture is an analogue of Bieberbach’s theory of Euclidean crystallographic groups in the setting of affine geometry. It predicts that a complete affine manifold (a manifold equipped with a complete torsion-free flat affine connection) which is compact must have virtually solvable fundamental group. The conjecture is known up to dimension six, but is known to fail if the compactness assumption is removed, even in low dimensions. We discuss some history of this conjecture, give some basic examples, and then survey some recent advances in the study of non-compact complete affine manifolds with non-solvable fundamental group. <br />
Tools from the deformation theory of pseudo-Riemannian hyperbolic manifolds and also from higher Teichm&uuml;ller theory will enter the picture.<br />

Title: Intrinsic and extrinsic geometries in several complex variables<br />
<br />
Abstract: A bounded domain in complex Euclidean space, despite being one of the simplest types of manifolds, has a number of interesting geometric structures. When the domain is pseudoconvex, it has a natural intrinsic geometry: the complete Kaehler-Einstein metric constructed by Cheng-Yau and Mok-Yau. When the domain is smoothly bounded, there is also a natural extrinsic structure: the CR-geometry of the boundary. In this talk, I will describe connections between these intrinsic and extrinsic geometries. Then, I will discuss how these connections can lead to new analytic results.<br />

Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />

Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).<br />

Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce a recent development in the global well-posedness of the Landau equation (1936) in a general smooth bounded domain, which has been a long-outstanding open problem. This work proves the global stability of the Landau equation in an $L^\infty_{x,v}$ framework with the Coulombic potential in a general smooth bounded domain with the specular reflection boundary condition for initial perturbations of the Maxwellian equilibrium states. Our methods consist of the generalization of the well-posedness theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equation (HJV-2014, HJJ-2018) and the extension of the boundary value problem to a whole space problem, as well as the use of a recent extension of De Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equations (GIMV-2016) and the Morrey estimates (BCM-1996) to further control the velocity derivatives, which ensures the uniqueness. This is a joint work with Y. Guo, H. J. Hwang, and Z. Ouyang.<br />

Title: <br />
Dislocations dynamics: from microscopic models to macroscopic crystal plasticity<br />
<br />
Abstract: Dislocation theory aims at explaining the plastic behavior of materials by the motion of line defects in crystals. Peierls-Nabarro models consist in approximating the geometric motion of these defects by nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations. We study the asymptotic limit of solutions of Peierls-Nabarro equations. Different scalings lead to different models at microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic scale. This is joint work with E. Valdinoci.<br />

Title: From the d'Alembert paradox to the 1984 Kato criteria via the 1941 $1/3$ Kolmogorov law and the 1949 Onsager conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: Several of my recent contributions, with Marie Farge, Edriss Titi, Emile Wiedemann, Piotr and Agneska Gwiadza, were motivated by the following issues: The role of boundary effect in mathematical theory of fluids mechanic and the similarity, in presence of these effects, of the weak convergence in the zero viscosity limit and the statistical theory of turbulence. As a consequence, I will recall the Onsager conjecture and compare it to the issue of anomalous energy dissipation.<br />
<br />
Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.<br />
<br />

Title: Two dimensional gravity waves at low regularity: Energy estimates<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider the gravity water wave equations in two space dimensions. Our focus is on sharp cubic energy estimates and low regularity solutions. Precisely, we will introduce techniques to prove a new class of energy estimates, which we call balanced cubic estimates. This yields a key improvement over the earlier cubic estimates of Hunter-Ifrim-Tataru, while preserving their scale invariant character and their position-velocity potential holomorphic coordinate formulation. Even without using Strichartz estimates, these results allow us to significantly lower the Sobolev regularity threshold for local well-posedness. This is joint work with Mihaela Ifrim and Daniel Tataru.<br />

Abstract: In this talk, we will consider self-shrinking solitons of the mean curvature flow that are smoothly asymptotic to a Riemannian cone in $\mathbb{R}^n$. In 2011, L. Wang proved the uniqueness of self-shrinking ends asymptotic to a cone $C$ in the case of hypersurfaces (codimension 1) by using a backwards uniqueness result for the heat equation due to Escauriaza, Sverak, and Seregin. Later, J. Bernstein proved the same fact using purely elliptic methods. We consider the case of self-shrinkers in high codimension, and outline how to prove the same uniqueness result in this significantly more general case, by using geometric arguments and extending Bernstein’s result.</div>Hunghttps://www.math.wisc.edu/wiki/index.php?title=PDE_Geometric_Analysis_seminar&diff=18419PDE Geometric Analysis seminar2019-11-15T13:10:16Z<p>Hung: /* PDE GA Seminar Schedule Fall 2019-Spring 2020 */</p>

Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />

Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).<br />

Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce a recent development in the global well-posedness of the Landau equation (1936) in a general smooth bounded domain, which has been a long-outstanding open problem. This work proves the global stability of the Landau equation in an $L^\infty_{x,v}$ framework with the Coulombic potential in a general smooth bounded domain with the specular reflection boundary condition for initial perturbations of the Maxwellian equilibrium states. Our methods consist of the generalization of the well-posedness theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equation (HJV-2014, HJJ-2018) and the extension of the boundary value problem to a whole space problem, as well as the use of a recent extension of De Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equations (GIMV-2016) and the Morrey estimates (BCM-1996) to further control the velocity derivatives, which ensures the uniqueness. This is a joint work with Y. Guo, H. J. Hwang, and Z. Ouyang.<br />

Title: <br />
Dislocations dynamics: from microscopic models to macroscopic crystal plasticity<br />
<br />
Abstract: Dislocation theory aims at explaining the plastic behavior of materials by the motion of line defects in crystals. Peierls-Nabarro models consist in approximating the geometric motion of these defects by nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations. We study the asymptotic limit of solutions of Peierls-Nabarro equations. Different scalings lead to different models at microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic scale. This is joint work with E. Valdinoci.<br />

===Claude Bardos===<br />
Title: From the d'Alembert paradox to the 1984 Kato criteria via the 1941 $1/3$ Kolmogorov law and the 1949 Onsager conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: Several of my recent contributions, with Marie Farge, Edriss Titi, Emile Wiedemann, Piotr and Agneska Gwiadza, were motivated by the following issues: The role of boundary effect in mathematical theory of fluids mechanic and the similarity, in presence of these effects, of the weak convergence in the zero viscosity limit and the statistical theory of turbulence. As a consequence, I will recall the Onsager conjecture and compare it to the issue of anomalous energy dissipation.<br />
<br />
Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.<br />

Title: Two dimensional gravity waves at low regularity: Energy estimates<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider the gravity water wave equations in two space dimensions. Our focus is on sharp cubic energy estimates and low regularity solutions. Precisely, we will introduce techniques to prove a new class of energy estimates, which we call balanced cubic estimates. This yields a key improvement over the earlier cubic estimates of Hunter-Ifrim-Tataru, while preserving their scale invariant character and their position-velocity potential holomorphic coordinate formulation. Even without using Strichartz estimates, these results allow us to significantly lower the Sobolev regularity threshold for local well-posedness. This is joint work with Mihaela Ifrim and Daniel Tataru.</div>Hunghttps://www.math.wisc.edu/wiki/index.php?title=Applied/ACMS/Spring2020&diff=18411Applied/ACMS/Spring20202019-11-14T19:14:15Z<p>Hung: /* Spring 2020 */</p>

<br />
Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />
<br />
<br />
===Son Tu===<br />
<br />
Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).<br />

<br />
Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce a recent development in the global well-posedness of the Landau equation (1936) in a general smooth bounded domain, which has been a long-outstanding open problem. This work proves the global stability of the Landau equation in an $L^\infty_{x,v}$ framework with the Coulombic potential in a general smooth bounded domain with the specular reflection boundary condition for initial perturbations of the Maxwellian equilibrium states. Our methods consist of the generalization of the well-posedness theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equation (HJV-2014, HJJ-2018) and the extension of the boundary value problem to a whole space problem, as well as the use of a recent extension of De Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equations (GIMV-2016) and the Morrey estimates (BCM-1996) to further control the velocity derivatives, which ensures the uniqueness. This is a joint work with Y. Guo, H. J. Hwang, and Z. Ouyang.<br />

<br />
Title: <br />
Dislocations dynamics: from microscopic models to macroscopic crystal plasticity<br />
<br />
Abstract: Dislocation theory aims at explaining the plastic behavior of materials by the motion of line defects in crystals. Peierls-Nabarro models consist in approximating the geometric motion of these defects by nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations. We study the asymptotic limit of solutions of Peierls-Nabarro equations. Different scalings lead to different models at microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic scale. This is joint work with E. Valdinoci.<br />
<br />

===Claude Bardos===<br />
Title: From the d'Alembert paradox to the 1984 Kato criteria via the 1941 $1/3$ Kolmogorov law and the 1949 Onsager conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: Several of my recent contributions, with Marie Farge, Edriss Titi, Emile Wiedemann, Piotr and Agneska Gwiadza, were motivated by the following issues: The role of boundary effect in mathematical theory of fluids mechanic and the similarity, in presence of these effects, of the weak convergence in the zero viscosity limit and the statistical theory of turbulence. As a consequence, I will recall the Onsager conjecture and compare it to the issue of anomalous energy dissipation.<br />
<br />
Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.<br />
<br />
===Albert Ai===<br />
Title: Two dimensional gravity waves at low regularity: Energy estimates<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we will consider the gravity water wave equations in two space dimensions. Our focus is on sharp cubic energy estimates and low regularity solutions. Precisely, we will introduce techniques to prove a new class of energy estimates, which we call balanced cubic estimates. This yields a key improvement over the earlier cubic estimates of Hunter-Ifrim-Tataru, while preserving their scale invariant character and their position-velocity potential holomorphic coordinate formulation. Even without using Strichartz estimates, these results allow us to significantly lower the Sobolev regularity threshold for local well-posedness. This is joint work with Mihaela Ifrim and Daniel Tataru.</div>Hunghttps://www.math.wisc.edu/wiki/index.php?title=Research_at_UW-Madison_in_DifferentialEquations&diff=18237Research at UW-Madison in DifferentialEquations2019-10-24T01:35:54Z<p>Hung: </p>

Dislocations dynamics: from microscopic models to macroscopic crystal plasticity<br />
<br />
Abstract: Dislocation theory aims at explaining the plastic behavior of materials by the motion of line defects in crystals. Peierls-Nabarro models consist in approximating the geometric motion of these defects by nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations. We study the asymptotic limit of solutions of Peierls-Nabarro equations. Different scalings lead to different models at microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic scale. This is joint work with E. Valdinoci.<br />

Title: From the d'Alembert paradox to the 1984 Kato criteria via the 1941 $1/3$ Kolmogorov law and the 1949 Onsager conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: Several of my recent contributions, with Marie Farge, Edriss Titi, Emile Wiedemann, Piotr and Agneska Gwiadza, were motivated by the following issues: The role of boundary effect in mathematical theory of fluids mechanic and the similarity, in presence of these effects, of the weak convergence in the zero viscosity limit and the statistical theory of turbulence. As a consequence, I will recall the Onsager conjecture and compare it to the issue of anomalous energy dissipation.<br />
<br />
Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.</div>Hunghttps://www.math.wisc.edu/wiki/index.php?title=PDE_Geometric_Analysis_seminar&diff=18157PDE Geometric Analysis seminar2019-10-14T03:31:12Z<p>Hung: /* PDE GA Seminar Schedule Fall 2019-Spring 2020 */</p>

Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />

Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).<br />

Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce a recent development in the global well-posedness of the Landau equation (1936) in a general smooth bounded domain, which has been a long-outstanding open problem. This work proves the global stability of the Landau equation in an $L^\infty_{x,v}$ framework with the Coulombic potential in a general smooth bounded domain with the specular reflection boundary condition for initial perturbations of the Maxwellian equilibrium states. Our methods consist of the generalization of the well-posedness theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equation (HJV-2014, HJJ-2018) and the extension of the boundary value problem to a whole space problem, as well as the use of a recent extension of De Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equations (GIMV-2016) and the Morrey estimates (BCM-1996) to further control the velocity derivatives, which ensures the uniqueness. This is a joint work with Y. Guo, H. J. Hwang, and Z. Ouyang.<br />

Peierls-Nabarro models consist in approximating the geometric motion of these defects by nonlocal reaction-diffusion equations. We study the asymptotic limit of solutions of Peierls-Nabarro equations. Different scalings lead to different models at microscopic, mesoscopic and macroscopic scale. This is joint work with E. Valdinoci.<br />

Title: From the d'Alembert paradox to the 1984 Kato criteria via the 1941 $1/3$ Kolmogorov law and the 1949 Onsager conjecture<br />
<br />
Abstract: Several of my recent contributions, with Marie Farge, Edriss Titi, Emile Wiedemann, Piotr and Agneska Gwiadza, were motivated by the following issues: The role of boundary effect in mathematical theory of fluids mechanic and the similarity, in presence of these effects, of the weak convergence in the zero viscosity limit and the statistical theory of turbulence. As a consequence, I will recall the Onsager conjecture and compare it to the issue of anomalous energy dissipation.<br />
<br />
Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.</div>Hunghttps://www.math.wisc.edu/wiki/index.php?title=PDE_Geometric_Analysis_seminar&diff=18154PDE Geometric Analysis seminar2019-10-14T03:30:09Z<p>Hung: /* PDE GA Seminar Schedule Fall 2019-Spring 2020 */</p>

Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />

Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).<br />

Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will introduce a recent development in the global well-posedness of the Landau equation (1936) in a general smooth bounded domain, which has been a long-outstanding open problem. This work proves the global stability of the Landau equation in an $L^\infty_{x,v}$ framework with the Coulombic potential in a general smooth bounded domain with the specular reflection boundary condition for initial perturbations of the Maxwellian equilibrium states. Our methods consist of the generalization of the well-posedness theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equation (HJV-2014, HJJ-2018) and the extension of the boundary value problem to a whole space problem, as well as the use of a recent extension of De Giorgi-Nash-Moser theory for the kinetic Fokker-Planck equations (GIMV-2016) and the Morrey estimates (BCM-1996) to further control the velocity derivatives, which ensures the uniqueness. This is a joint work with Y. Guo, H. J. Hwang, and Z. Ouyang.<br />

Then I will give a proof of the local conservation of energy under convenient hypothesis in a domain with boundary and give supplementary condition that imply the global conservation of energy in a domain with boundary and the absence of anomalous energy dissipation in the zero viscosity limit of solutions of the Navier-Stokes equation in the presence of no slip boundary condition.<br />
<br />
Eventually the above results are compared with several forms of a basic theorem of Kato in the presence of a Lipschitz solution of the Euler equations and one may insist on the fact that in such case the the absence of anomalous energy dissipation is {\bf equivalent} to the persistence of regularity in the zero viscosity limit. Eventually this remark contributes to the resolution of the d'Alembert Paradox.</div>Hunghttps://www.math.wisc.edu/wiki/index.php?title=PDE_Geometric_Analysis_seminar&diff=17919PDE Geometric Analysis seminar2019-09-18T15:45:10Z<p>Hung: /* Abstracts */</p>

Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk with focus on quasi-linear parabolic equations with an irregular forcing . These equations are ill-posed in the traditional sense of distribution theory. They require flexibility in the notion of solution as well as new a priori bounds. Drawing on the philosophy of rough paths and regularity structures, we develop the analytic part of a small data solution theory. This is joint work with Felix Otto, Hendrik Weber, and Jonas Sauer.<br />

Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains<br />
<br />
Abstract: We study state-constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in a sequence of domains $\{\Omega_k\}$ in $\mathbb R^n$ such that $\Omega_k \subset \Omega_{k+1}$ for all $k \in \mathbb N$. We obtain rates of convergence of $u_k$, the solution to the state-constraint problem in $\Omega_k$, to $u$, the solution to the corresponding problem in $\Omega=\bigcup_k \Omega_k$. In many cases, the rates obtained are proven to be optimal (it's a joint work with Yeoneung Kim and Hung V. Tran).</div>Hunghttps://www.math.wisc.edu/wiki/index.php?title=PDE_Geometric_Analysis_seminar&diff=17918PDE Geometric Analysis seminar2019-09-18T15:44:56Z<p>Hung: /* Abstracts */</p>

Title: The theorem of characterization of the Strong Maximum Principle<br />
<br />
Abstract: The main goal of this talk is to discuss the classical (well known) versions of the strong maximum principle of Hopf and Oleinik, as well as the generalized maximum principle of Protter and Weinberger. These results serve as steps towards the theorem of characterization of the strong maximum principle of the speaker, Molina-Meyer and Amann, which substantially generalizes a popular result of Berestycki, Nirenberg and Varadhan.<br />
<br />
===Hiroyoshi Mitake===<br />
Title: On approximation of time-fractional fully nonlinear equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: Fractional calculus has been studied extensively these years in wide fields. In this talk, we consider time-fractional fully nonlinear equations. Giga-Namba (2017) recently has established the well-posedness (i.e., existence/uniqueness) of viscosity solutions to this equation. We introduce a natural approximation in terms of elliptic theory and prove the convergence. The talk is based on the joint work with Y. Giga (Univ. of Tokyo) and Q. Liu (Fukuoka Univ.) <br />

Title: Some recent results on mathematical analysis of Ericksen-Leslie System<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Ericksen-Leslie system is the governing equation that describes the hydrodynamic evolution of nematic liquid crystal materials, first introduced by J. Ericksen and F. Leslie back in 1960's. It is a coupling system between the underlying fluid velocity field and the macroscopic average orientation field of the nematic liquid crystal molecules. Mathematically, this system couples the Navier-Stokes equation and the harmonic heat flow into the unit sphere. It is very challenging to analyze such a system by establishing the existence, uniqueness, and (partial) regularity of global (weak/large) solutions, with many basic questions to be further exploited. In this talk, I will report some results we obtained from the last few years.<br />
<br />

Title: Finite energy methods for the 1D isentropic Euler equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will present some recent results concerning the 1D isentropic Euler equations using the theory of compensated compactness in the framework of finite energy solutions. In particular, I will discuss the convergence of the vanishing viscosity limit of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations to the Euler equations in one space dimension. I will also discuss how the techniques developed for this problem can be applied to the existence theory for the spherically symmetric Euler equations and the transonic nozzle problem. One feature of these three problems is the lack of a priori estimates in the space $L^\infty$, which prevent the application of the standard theory for the 1D Euler equations.<br />
<br />
===Anna Mazzucato===<br />
<br />
Title: On the vanishing viscosity limit in incompressible flows<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will discuss recent results on the analysis of the vanishing viscosity limit, that is, whether solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations converge to solutions of the Euler equations, for incompressible fluids when walls are present. At small viscosity, a viscous boundary layer arise near the walls where large gradients of velocity and vorticity may form and propagate in the bulk (if the boundary layer separates). A rigorous justification of Prandtl approximation, in absence of analyticity or monotonicity of the data, is available essentially only in the linear or weakly linear regime under no-slip boundary conditions. I will present in particular a detailed analysis of the boundary layer for an Oseen-type equation (linearization around a steady Euler flow) in general smooth domains.<br />
<br />
===Lei Wu===<br />
<br />
Title: Hydrodynamic Limits in Kinetic Equations with Boundary Layer Effects<br />
<br />
Abstract: Hydrodynamic limits concern the rigorous derivation of fluid equations from kinetic theory. In bounded domains, kinetic boundary corrections (i.e. boundary layers) play a crucial role. In this talk, I will discuss a fresh formulation to characterize the boundary layer with geometric correction, and in particular, its applications in 2D smooth convex domains with in-flow or diffusive boundary conditions. We will focus on some newly developed techniques to justify the asymptotic expansion, e.g. weighted regularity in Milne problems and boundary layer decomposition.<br />

Title: Global existence of small solutions to a model wave-Klein-Gordon system in 2D<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk deals with the problem of global existence of solutions to a quadratic coupled wave-Klein-Gordon system in space dimension 2, when initial data are small, smooth and mildly decaying at infinity.Some physical models, especially related to general relativity, have shown the importance of studying such systems. At present, most of the existing results concern the 3-dimensional case or that of compactly supported initial data. We content ourselves here with studying the case of a model quadratic quasi-linear non-linearity, that expresses in terms of « null forms » .<br />
Our aim is to obtain some energy estimates on the solution when some Klainerman vector fields are acting on it, and sharp uniform estimates. The former ones are recovered making systematically use of normal forms’ arguments for quasi-linear equations, in their para-differential version, whereas we derive the latter ones by deducing a system of ordinary differential equations from the starting partial differential system. We hope this strategy will lead us in the future to treat the case of the most general non-linearities.<br />

Title: Construction of solutions to a Hamilton-Jacobi equation with a maximum constraint and some uniqueness properties<br />
<br />
A biological evolution model involving trait as space variable has a interesting feature phenomena called Dirac concentration of density as diffusion coefficient vanishes. The limiting equation from the model can be formulated by Hamilton Jacobi equation with a maximum constraint. In this talk, I will present a way of constructing a solution to a constraint Hamilton Jacobi equation together with some uniqueness and non-uniqueness properties.<br />

Title: Low Regularity Solutions for Gravity Water Waves<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider the local well-posedness of the Cauchy problem for the gravity water waves equations, which model the free interface between a fluid and air in the presence of gravity. It has been known that by using dispersive effects, one can lower the regularity threshold for well-posedness below that which is attainable by energy estimates alone. Using a paradifferential reduction of Alazard-Burq-Zuily and low regularity Strichartz estimates, we apply this idea to the well-posedness of the gravity water waves equations in arbitrary space dimension. Further, in two space dimensions, we discuss how one can apply local smoothing effects to further extend this result.<br />

Title: Flocking Models with Singular Interaction Kernels<br />
<br />
Abstract: Many biological systems exhibit the property of self-organization, the defining feature of which is coherent, large-scale motion arising from underlying short-range interactions between the agents that make up the system. In this talk, we give an overview of some simple models that have been used to describe the so-called flocking phenomenon. Within the family of models that we consider (of which the Cucker-Smale model is the canonical example), writing down the relevant set of equations amounts to choosing a kernel that governs the interaction between agents. We focus on the recent line of research that treats the case where the interaction kernel is singular. In particular, we discuss some new results on the wellposedness and long-time dynamics of the Euler Alignment model and the Shvydkoy-Tadmor model.<br />
<br />

Title: Sufficient conditions for local solvability of some degenerate partial differential operators <br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk we will give sufficient conditions for the local solvability of a class of degenerate second order linear partial differential operators with smooth coefficients. The class under consideration, inspired by some generalizations of the Kannai operator, is characterized by the presence of a complex subprincipal symbol. By giving suitable conditions on the subprincipal part and using the technique of a priori estimates, we will show that the operators in the class are at least $L^2$ to $L^2$ locally solvable.<br />
<br />

Title: The role of Energy in Regularity<br />
<br />
Abstract: The calculus of variations asks us to minimize some energy and then describe the shape/properties of the minimizers. It is perhaps a surprising fact that minimizers to ``nice" energies are more regular than one, a priori, assumes. A useful tool for understanding this phenomenon is the Euler-Lagrange equation, which is a partial differential equation satisfied by the critical points of the energy.<br />
<br />
However, as we teach our calculus students, not every critical point is a minimizer. In this talk we will discuss some techniques to distinguish the behavior of general critical points from that of minimizers. We will then outline how these techniques may be used to solve some central open problems in the field.<br />
<br />
We will then turn the tables, and examine PDEs which look like they should be an Euler-Lagrange equation but for which there is no underlying energy. For some of these PDEs the solutions will regularize (as if there were an underlying energy) for others, pathological behavior can occur.<br />

Title: Inverse transport theory and related applications.<br />
<br />
Abstract: The inverse transport problem consists of reconstructing the optical properties of a medium from boundary measurements. It finds applications in a variety of fields. In particular, radiative transfer equation (a linear transport equation) models the photon propagation in a medium in optical tomography. In this talk we will address results on the determination of these optical parameters. Moreover, the connection between the inverse transport problem and the Calderon problem will also be discussed.<br />

Title: The propagations of uniform upper bounds fo the spatially homogeneous relativistic Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we consider the propagation of the uniform upper bounds<br />
for the spatially homogenous relativistic Boltzmann equation. For this, we establish two<br />
types of estimates for the the gain part of the collision operator: namely, a potential<br />
type estimate and a relativistic hyper-surface integral estimate. We then combine them<br />
using the relativistic counter-part of the Carlemann representation to derive a uniform<br />
control of the gain part, which gives the desired propagation of the uniform bounds of<br />
the solution. Some applications of the results are also considered. This is a joint work <br />
with Jin Woo Jang and Robert M. Strain.<br />

Title: A Morawetz inequality for water waves.<br />
<br />
Authors: Thomas Alazard, Mihaela Ifrim, Daniel Tataru.<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider gravity water waves in two space dimensions, with finite or infinite depth. Assuming some uniform scale invariant Sobolev bounds for the solutions, we prove local energy decay (Morawetz) estimates globally in time. Our result is uniform in the infinite depth limit. <br />
<br />

Title: Periodic homogenization of Dirichlet problems in perforated domains: a unified proof<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we present a unified proof to establish periodic homogenization for the Dirichlet problems associated to the Laplace operator in perforated domains; here the uniformity is with respect to the ratio between scaling factors of the perforation holes and the periodicity. Our method recovers, for critical scaling of the hole-cell ratio, the “strange term coming from nowhere” found by Cioranescu and Murat, and it works at the same time for other settings of hole-cell ratios. Moreover, the method is naturally based on analysis of rescaled cell problems and hence reveals the intrinsic connections among the apparently different homogenization behaviors in those different settings. We also show how to quantify the approach to get error estimates and corrector results.<br />

Title: Quantitative homogenization in a balanced random environment<br />
<br />
Abstract: Stochastic homogenization of discrete difference operators is closely related to the convergence of random walk in a random environment (RWRE) to its limiting process. In this talk we discuss non-divergence form difference operators in an i.i.d random environment and the corresponding process—a random walk in a balanced random environment in the integer lattice Z^d. We first quantify the ergodicity of the environment viewed from the point of view of the particle. As consequences, we obtain algebraic rates of convergence for the quenched central limit theorem of the RWRE and for the homogenization of both elliptic and parabolic non-divergence form difference operators. Joint work with J. Peterson (Purdue) and H. V. Tran (UW-Madison). <br />

<br />
Title: PDE aspects of the Navier-Stokes equations and simpler models<br />
<br />
Abstract: Does the Navier-Stokes equation give a reasonably complete description of fluid motion? There seems to be no empirical evidence which would suggest a negative answer (in regimes which are not extreme), but from the purely mathematical point of view, the answer may not be so clear. In the lecture, I will discuss some of the possible scenarios and open problems for both the full equations and simplified models.<br />
<br />

Title: Stability of vacuum for the Landau equation with moderately soft potentials<br />
<br />
Abstract: Consider the Landau equation with moderately soft potentials in the whole space. We prove that sufficiently small and localized regular initial data give rise to unique global-in-time smooth solutions. Moreover, the solutions approach that of the free transport equation as $t\to +\infty$. This is the first stability of vacuum result for a binary collisional kinetic model featuring a long-range interaction.<br />

Title: Convergence to the complex balanced equilibrium for some reaction-diffusion systems with boundary equilibria.<br />
<br />
Abstract: We first analyze a three-species system with boundary equilibria in some stoichiometric classes and study the rate of convergence to the complex balanced equilibrium. Then we prove similar results on the convergence to the positive equilibrium for a fairly general two-species reversible reaction-diffusion network with boundary equilibria.<br />
<br />
===Jingrui Cheng===<br />
<br />
Title: Gradient estimate for complex Monge-Ampere equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider complex Monge-Ampere equations on a compact Kahler manifold. Previous gradient estimates of the solution all require some derivative bound of the right hand side. I will talk about how to get gradient estimate in $L^p$ and $L^{\infty}$, depending only on the continuity of the right hand side.<br />

Title: Radial symmetry of stationary and uniformly-rotating solutions in 2D incompressible fluid equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss some recent work on radial symmetry property for stationary or uniformly-rotating solutions for 2D Euler and SQG equation, where we aim to answer the question whether every stationary/uniformly-rotating solution must be radially symmetric, if the vorticity is compactly supported. This is a joint work with Javier Gómez-Serrano, Jaemin Park and Jia Shi.<br />
<br />

Title: Speeds and Homogenization for Reaction-Diffusion Equations in Random Media<br />
<br />
Abstract: <br />
The study of spreadings speeds, front speeds, and homogenization for reaction-diffusion equations in random heterogeneous media is of interest for many applications to mathematical modelling. However, most existing arguments rely on the construction of special solutions or linearization techniques. In this talk, I will present some new approaches for their analysis which do not utilize either of these. This talk is based on joint work with Andrej Zlatos.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
===Beomjun Choi===<br />
In this talk, we first introduce the inverse mean curvature flow and its well known application in the the proof of Riemannian Penrose inequality by Huisken and Ilmanen. Then our main result on the existence and behavior of convex non-compact solution will be discussed. <br />
<br />
The key ingredient is a priori interior in time estimate on the inverse mean curvature in terms of the aperture of supporting cone at infinity. This is a joint work with P. Daskalopoulos and I will also mention the recent work with P.-K. Hung concerning the evolution of singular hypersurfaces.</div>Hunghttps://www.math.wisc.edu/wiki/index.php?title=PDE_Geometric_Analysis_seminar&diff=17302PDE Geometric Analysis seminar2019-04-10T21:54:01Z<p>Hung: /* Abstracts */</p>

Title: The theorem of characterization of the Strong Maximum Principle<br />
<br />
Abstract: The main goal of this talk is to discuss the classical (well known) versions of the strong maximum principle of Hopf and Oleinik, as well as the generalized maximum principle of Protter and Weinberger. These results serve as steps towards the theorem of characterization of the strong maximum principle of the speaker, Molina-Meyer and Amann, which substantially generalizes a popular result of Berestycki, Nirenberg and Varadhan.<br />

Title: On approximation of time-fractional fully nonlinear equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: Fractional calculus has been studied extensively these years in wide fields. In this talk, we consider time-fractional fully nonlinear equations. Giga-Namba (2017) recently has established the well-posedness (i.e., existence/uniqueness) of viscosity solutions to this equation. We introduce a natural approximation in terms of elliptic theory and prove the convergence. The talk is based on the joint work with Y. Giga (Univ. of Tokyo) and Q. Liu (Fukuoka Univ.) <br />

Title: Some recent results on mathematical analysis of Ericksen-Leslie System<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Ericksen-Leslie system is the governing equation that describes the hydrodynamic evolution of nematic liquid crystal materials, first introduced by J. Ericksen and F. Leslie back in 1960's. It is a coupling system between the underlying fluid velocity field and the macroscopic average orientation field of the nematic liquid crystal molecules. Mathematically, this system couples the Navier-Stokes equation and the harmonic heat flow into the unit sphere. It is very challenging to analyze such a system by establishing the existence, uniqueness, and (partial) regularity of global (weak/large) solutions, with many basic questions to be further exploited. In this talk, I will report some results we obtained from the last few years.<br />

Title: Finite energy methods for the 1D isentropic Euler equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will present some recent results concerning the 1D isentropic Euler equations using the theory of compensated compactness in the framework of finite energy solutions. In particular, I will discuss the convergence of the vanishing viscosity limit of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations to the Euler equations in one space dimension. I will also discuss how the techniques developed for this problem can be applied to the existence theory for the spherically symmetric Euler equations and the transonic nozzle problem. One feature of these three problems is the lack of a priori estimates in the space $L^\infty$, which prevent the application of the standard theory for the 1D Euler equations.<br />

Title: On the vanishing viscosity limit in incompressible flows<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will discuss recent results on the analysis of the vanishing viscosity limit, that is, whether solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations converge to solutions of the Euler equations, for incompressible fluids when walls are present. At small viscosity, a viscous boundary layer arise near the walls where large gradients of velocity and vorticity may form and propagate in the bulk (if the boundary layer separates). A rigorous justification of Prandtl approximation, in absence of analyticity or monotonicity of the data, is available essentially only in the linear or weakly linear regime under no-slip boundary conditions. I will present in particular a detailed analysis of the boundary layer for an Oseen-type equation (linearization around a steady Euler flow) in general smooth domains.<br />

Title: Hydrodynamic Limits in Kinetic Equations with Boundary Layer Effects<br />
<br />
Abstract: Hydrodynamic limits concern the rigorous derivation of fluid equations from kinetic theory. In bounded domains, kinetic boundary corrections (i.e. boundary layers) play a crucial role. In this talk, I will discuss a fresh formulation to characterize the boundary layer with geometric correction, and in particular, its applications in 2D smooth convex domains with in-flow or diffusive boundary conditions. We will focus on some newly developed techniques to justify the asymptotic expansion, e.g. weighted regularity in Milne problems and boundary layer decomposition.<br />

Title: Global existence of small solutions to a model wave-Klein-Gordon system in 2D<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk deals with the problem of global existence of solutions to a quadratic coupled wave-Klein-Gordon system in space dimension 2, when initial data are small, smooth and mildly decaying at infinity.Some physical models, especially related to general relativity, have shown the importance of studying such systems. At present, most of the existing results concern the 3-dimensional case or that of compactly supported initial data. We content ourselves here with studying the case of a model quadratic quasi-linear non-linearity, that expresses in terms of « null forms » .<br />
Our aim is to obtain some energy estimates on the solution when some Klainerman vector fields are acting on it, and sharp uniform estimates. The former ones are recovered making systematically use of normal forms’ arguments for quasi-linear equations, in their para-differential version, whereas we derive the latter ones by deducing a system of ordinary differential equations from the starting partial differential system. We hope this strategy will lead us in the future to treat the case of the most general non-linearities.<br />

Title: Construction of solutions to a Hamilton-Jacobi equation with a maximum constraint and some uniqueness properties<br />
<br />
A biological evolution model involving trait as space variable has a interesting feature phenomena called Dirac concentration of density as diffusion coefficient vanishes. The limiting equation from the model can be formulated by Hamilton Jacobi equation with a maximum constraint. In this talk, I will present a way of constructing a solution to a constraint Hamilton Jacobi equation together with some uniqueness and non-uniqueness properties.<br />

Title: Low Regularity Solutions for Gravity Water Waves<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider the local well-posedness of the Cauchy problem for the gravity water waves equations, which model the free interface between a fluid and air in the presence of gravity. It has been known that by using dispersive effects, one can lower the regularity threshold for well-posedness below that which is attainable by energy estimates alone. Using a paradifferential reduction of Alazard-Burq-Zuily and low regularity Strichartz estimates, we apply this idea to the well-posedness of the gravity water waves equations in arbitrary space dimension. Further, in two space dimensions, we discuss how one can apply local smoothing effects to further extend this result.<br />

Title: Flocking Models with Singular Interaction Kernels<br />
<br />
Abstract: Many biological systems exhibit the property of self-organization, the defining feature of which is coherent, large-scale motion arising from underlying short-range interactions between the agents that make up the system. In this talk, we give an overview of some simple models that have been used to describe the so-called flocking phenomenon. Within the family of models that we consider (of which the Cucker-Smale model is the canonical example), writing down the relevant set of equations amounts to choosing a kernel that governs the interaction between agents. We focus on the recent line of research that treats the case where the interaction kernel is singular. In particular, we discuss some new results on the wellposedness and long-time dynamics of the Euler Alignment model and the Shvydkoy-Tadmor model.<br />

Title: Sufficient conditions for local solvability of some degenerate partial differential operators <br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk we will give sufficient conditions for the local solvability of a class of degenerate second order linear partial differential operators with smooth coefficients. The class under consideration, inspired by some generalizations of the Kannai operator, is characterized by the presence of a complex subprincipal symbol. By giving suitable conditions on the subprincipal part and using the technique of a priori estimates, we will show that the operators in the class are at least $L^2$ to $L^2$ locally solvable.<br />

Title: The role of Energy in Regularity<br />
<br />
Abstract: The calculus of variations asks us to minimize some energy and then describe the shape/properties of the minimizers. It is perhaps a surprising fact that minimizers to ``nice" energies are more regular than one, a priori, assumes. A useful tool for understanding this phenomenon is the Euler-Lagrange equation, which is a partial differential equation satisfied by the critical points of the energy.<br />
<br />
However, as we teach our calculus students, not every critical point is a minimizer. In this talk we will discuss some techniques to distinguish the behavior of general critical points from that of minimizers. We will then outline how these techniques may be used to solve some central open problems in the field.<br />
<br />
We will then turn the tables, and examine PDEs which look like they should be an Euler-Lagrange equation but for which there is no underlying energy. For some of these PDEs the solutions will regularize (as if there were an underlying energy) for others, pathological behavior can occur.<br />

Title: Inverse transport theory and related applications.<br />
<br />
Abstract: The inverse transport problem consists of reconstructing the optical properties of a medium from boundary measurements. It finds applications in a variety of fields. In particular, radiative transfer equation (a linear transport equation) models the photon propagation in a medium in optical tomography. In this talk we will address results on the determination of these optical parameters. Moreover, the connection between the inverse transport problem and the Calderon problem will also be discussed.<br />

Title: The propagations of uniform upper bounds fo the spatially homogeneous relativistic Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we consider the propagation of the uniform upper bounds<br />
for the spatially homogenous relativistic Boltzmann equation. For this, we establish two<br />
types of estimates for the the gain part of the collision operator: namely, a potential<br />
type estimate and a relativistic hyper-surface integral estimate. We then combine them<br />
using the relativistic counter-part of the Carlemann representation to derive a uniform<br />
control of the gain part, which gives the desired propagation of the uniform bounds of<br />
the solution. Some applications of the results are also considered. This is a joint work <br />
with Jin Woo Jang and Robert M. Strain.<br />

Title: A Morawetz inequality for water waves.<br />
<br />
Authors: Thomas Alazard, Mihaela Ifrim, Daniel Tataru.<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider gravity water waves in two space dimensions, with finite or infinite depth. Assuming some uniform scale invariant Sobolev bounds for the solutions, we prove local energy decay (Morawetz) estimates globally in time. Our result is uniform in the infinite depth limit. <br />

Title: Periodic homogenization of Dirichlet problems in perforated domains: a unified proof<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we present a unified proof to establish periodic homogenization for the Dirichlet problems associated to the Laplace operator in perforated domains; here the uniformity is with respect to the ratio between scaling factors of the perforation holes and the periodicity. Our method recovers, for critical scaling of the hole-cell ratio, the “strange term coming from nowhere” found by Cioranescu and Murat, and it works at the same time for other settings of hole-cell ratios. Moreover, the method is naturally based on analysis of rescaled cell problems and hence reveals the intrinsic connections among the apparently different homogenization behaviors in those different settings. We also show how to quantify the approach to get error estimates and corrector results.<br />

Title: Quantitative homogenization in a balanced random environment<br />
<br />
Abstract: Stochastic homogenization of discrete difference operators is closely related to the convergence of random walk in a random environment (RWRE) to its limiting process. In this talk we discuss non-divergence form difference operators in an i.i.d random environment and the corresponding process—a random walk in a balanced random environment in the integer lattice Z^d. We first quantify the ergodicity of the environment viewed from the point of view of the particle. As consequences, we obtain algebraic rates of convergence for the quenched central limit theorem of the RWRE and for the homogenization of both elliptic and parabolic non-divergence form difference operators. Joint work with J. Peterson (Purdue) and H. V. Tran (UW-Madison). <br />

Title: PDE aspects of the Navier-Stokes equations and simpler models<br />
<br />
Abstract: Does the Navier-Stokes equation give a reasonably complete description of fluid motion? There seems to be no empirical evidence which would suggest a negative answer (in regimes which are not extreme), but from the purely mathematical point of view, the answer may not be so clear. In the lecture, I will discuss some of the possible scenarios and open problems for both the full equations and simplified models.<br />

Title: Stability of vacuum for the Landau equation with moderately soft potentials<br />
<br />
Abstract: Consider the Landau equation with moderately soft potentials in the whole space. We prove that sufficiently small and localized regular initial data give rise to unique global-in-time smooth solutions. Moreover, the solutions approach that of the free transport equation as $t\to +\infty$. This is the first stability of vacuum result for a binary collisional kinetic model featuring a long-range interaction.<br />

Title: Convergence to the complex balanced equilibrium for some reaction-diffusion systems with boundary equilibria.<br />
<br />
Abstract: We first analyze a three-species system with boundary equilibria in some stoichiometric classes and study the rate of convergence to the complex balanced equilibrium. Then we prove similar results on the convergence to the positive equilibrium for a fairly general two-species reversible reaction-diffusion network with boundary equilibria.<br />

Title: Gradient estimate for complex Monge-Ampere equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider complex Monge-Ampere equations on a compact Kahler manifold. Previous gradient estimates of the solution all require some derivative bound of the right hand side. I will talk about how to get gradient estimate in $L^p$ and $L^{\infty}$, depending only on the continuity of the right hand side.<br />

Title: Radial symmetry of stationary and uniformly-rotating solutions in 2D incompressible fluid equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will discuss some recent work on radial symmetry property for stationary or uniformly-rotating solutions for 2D Euler and SQG equation, where we aim to answer the question whether every stationary/uniformly-rotating solution must be radially symmetric, if the vorticity is compactly supported. This is a joint work with Javier Gómez-Serrano, Jaemin Park and Jia Shi.<br />

Title: Speeds and Homogenization for Reaction-Diffusion Equations in Random Media<br />
<br />
Abstract: <br />
The study of spreadings speeds, front speeds, and homogenization for reaction-diffusion equations in random heterogeneous media is of interest for many applications to mathematical modelling. However, most existing arguments rely on the construction of special solutions or linearization techniques. In this talk, I will present some new approaches for their analysis which do not utilize either of these. This talk is based on joint work with Andrej Zlatos.<br />

===Beomjun Choi===<br />
In this talk, we first introduce the inverse mean curvature flow and its well known application in the the proof of Riemannian Penrose inequality by Huisken and Ilmanen. Then our main result on the existence and behavior of convex non-compact solution will be discussed. <br />
<br />
The key ingredient is a priori interior in time estimate on the inverse mean curvature in terms of the aperture of supporting cone at infinity. This is a joint work with P. Daskalopoulos and I will also mention the recent work with P.-K. Hung concerning the evolution of singular hypersurfaces.</div>Hunghttps://www.math.wisc.edu/wiki/index.php?title=PDE_Geometric_Analysis_seminar&diff=17273PDE Geometric Analysis seminar2019-04-02T13:27:01Z<p>Hung: /* Abstracts */</p>

Title: Global existence of small solutions to a model wave-Klein-Gordon system in 2D<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk deals with the problem of global existence of solutions to a quadratic coupled wave-Klein-Gordon system in space dimension 2, when initial data are small, smooth and mildly decaying at infinity.Some physical models, especially related to general relativity, have shown the importance of studying such systems. At present, most of the existing results concern the 3-dimensional case or that of compactly supported initial data. We content ourselves here with studying the case of a model quadratic quasi-linear non-linearity, that expresses in terms of « null forms » .<br />
Our aim is to obtain some energy estimates on the solution when some Klainerman vector fields are acting on it, and sharp uniform estimates. The former ones are recovered making systematically use of normal forms’ arguments for quasi-linear equations, in their para-differential version, whereas we derive the latter ones by deducing a system of ordinary differential equations from the starting partial differential system. We hope this strategy will lead us in the future to treat the case of the most general non-linearities.<br />

Title: Construction of solutions to a Hamilton-Jacobi equation with a maximum constraint and some uniqueness properties<br />
<br />
A biological evolution model involving trait as space variable has a interesting feature phenomena called Dirac concentration of density as diffusion coefficient vanishes. The limiting equation from the model can be formulated by Hamilton Jacobi equation with a maximum constraint. In this talk, I will present a way of constructing a solution to a constraint Hamilton Jacobi equation together with some uniqueness and non-uniqueness properties.<br />

Title: Low Regularity Solutions for Gravity Water Waves<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider the local well-posedness of the Cauchy problem for the gravity water waves equations, which model the free interface between a fluid and air in the presence of gravity. It has been known that by using dispersive effects, one can lower the regularity threshold for well-posedness below that which is attainable by energy estimates alone. Using a paradifferential reduction of Alazard-Burq-Zuily and low regularity Strichartz estimates, we apply this idea to the well-posedness of the gravity water waves equations in arbitrary space dimension. Further, in two space dimensions, we discuss how one can apply local smoothing effects to further extend this result.<br />

Title: Flocking Models with Singular Interaction Kernels<br />
<br />
Abstract: Many biological systems exhibit the property of self-organization, the defining feature of which is coherent, large-scale motion arising from underlying short-range interactions between the agents that make up the system. In this talk, we give an overview of some simple models that have been used to describe the so-called flocking phenomenon. Within the family of models that we consider (of which the Cucker-Smale model is the canonical example), writing down the relevant set of equations amounts to choosing a kernel that governs the interaction between agents. We focus on the recent line of research that treats the case where the interaction kernel is singular. In particular, we discuss some new results on the wellposedness and long-time dynamics of the Euler Alignment model and the Shvydkoy-Tadmor model.<br />

Title: Sufficient conditions for local solvability of some degenerate partial differential operators <br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk we will give sufficient conditions for the local solvability of a class of degenerate second order linear partial differential operators with smooth coefficients. The class under consideration, inspired by some generalizations of the Kannai operator, is characterized by the presence of a complex subprincipal symbol. By giving suitable conditions on the subprincipal part and using the technique of a priori estimates, we will show that the operators in the class are at least $L^2$ to $L^2$ locally solvable.<br />

Title: The role of Energy in Regularity<br />
<br />
Abstract: The calculus of variations asks us to minimize some energy and then describe the shape/properties of the minimizers. It is perhaps a surprising fact that minimizers to ``nice" energies are more regular than one, a priori, assumes. A useful tool for understanding this phenomenon is the Euler-Lagrange equation, which is a partial differential equation satisfied by the critical points of the energy.<br />
<br />
However, as we teach our calculus students, not every critical point is a minimizer. In this talk we will discuss some techniques to distinguish the behavior of general critical points from that of minimizers. We will then outline how these techniques may be used to solve some central open problems in the field.<br />
<br />
We will then turn the tables, and examine PDEs which look like they should be an Euler-Lagrange equation but for which there is no underlying energy. For some of these PDEs the solutions will regularize (as if there were an underlying energy) for others, pathological behavior can occur.<br />

Moreover, the connection between the inverse transport problem and the Calderon problem will also be discussed.<br />

Title: The propagations of uniform upper bounds fo the spatially homogeneous relativistic Boltzmann equation<br />

Abstract: In this talk, we consider the propagation of the uniform upper bounds<br />
for the spatially homogenous relativistic Boltzmann equation. For this, we establish two<br />
types of estimates for the the gain part of the collision operator: namely, a potential<br />
type estimate and a relativistic hyper-surface integral estimate. We then combine them<br />
using the relativistic counter-part of the Carlemann representation to derive a uniform<br />
control of the gain part, which gives the desired propagation of the uniform bounds of<br />
the solution. Some applications of the results are also considered. This is a joint work <br />

Title: Periodic homogenization of Dirichlet problems in perforated domains: a unified proof<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we present a unified proof to establish periodic homogenization for the Dirichlet problems associated to the Laplace operator in perforated domains; here the uniformity is with respect to the ratio between scaling factors of the perforation holes and the periodicity. Our method recovers, for critical scaling of the hole-cell ratio, the “strange term coming from nowhere” found by Cioranescu and Murat, and it works at the same time for other settings of hole-cell ratios. Moreover, the method is naturally based on analysis of rescaled cell problems and hence reveals the intrinsic connections among the apparently different homogenization behaviors in those different settings. We also show how to quantify the approach to get error estimates and corrector results.<br />

Title: Quantitative homogenization in a balanced random environment<br />
<br />
Abstract: Stochastic homogenization of discrete difference operators is closely related to the convergence of random walk in a random environment (RWRE) to its limiting process. In this talk we discuss non-divergence form difference operators in an i.i.d random environment and the corresponding process—a random walk in a balanced random environment in the integer lattice Z^d. We first quantify the ergodicity of the environment viewed from the point of view of the particle. As consequences, we obtain algebraic rates of convergence for the quenched central limit theorem of the RWRE and for the homogenization of both elliptic and parabolic non-divergence form difference operators. Joint work with J. Peterson (Purdue) and H. V. Tran (UW-Madison). <br />

Title: PDE aspects of the Navier-Stokes equations and simpler models<br />

Abstract: Does the Navier-Stokes equation give a reasonably complete description of fluid motion? There seems to be no empirical evidence which would suggest a negative answer (in regimes which are not extreme), but from the purely mathematical point of view, the answer may not be so clear. In the lecture, I will discuss some of the possible scenarios and open problems for both the full equations and simplified models.<br />

Abstract: Consider the Landau equation with moderately soft potentials in the whole space. We prove that sufficiently small and localized regular initial data give rise to unique global-in-time smooth solutions. Moreover, the solutions approach that of the free transport equation as $t\to +\infty$. This is the first stability of vacuum result for a binary collisional kinetic model featuring a long-range interaction.<br />

Title: The theorem of characterization of the Strong Maximum Principle<br />
<br />
Abstract: The main goal of this talk is to discuss the classical (well known) versions of the strong maximum principle of Hopf and Oleinik, as well as the generalized maximum principle of Protter and Weinberger. These results serve as steps towards the theorem of characterization of the strong maximum principle of the speaker, Molina-Meyer and Amann, which substantially generalizes a popular result of Berestycki, Nirenberg and Varadhan.<br />

Title: On approximation of time-fractional fully nonlinear equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: Fractional calculus has been studied extensively these years in wide fields. In this talk, we consider time-fractional fully nonlinear equations. Giga-Namba (2017) recently has established the well-posedness (i.e., existence/uniqueness) of viscosity solutions to this equation. We introduce a natural approximation in terms of elliptic theory and prove the convergence. The talk is based on the joint work with Y. Giga (Univ. of Tokyo) and Q. Liu (Fukuoka Univ.) <br />

Title: Some recent results on mathematical analysis of Ericksen-Leslie System<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Ericksen-Leslie system is the governing equation that describes the hydrodynamic evolution of nematic liquid crystal materials, first introduced by J. Ericksen and F. Leslie back in 1960's. It is a coupling system between the underlying fluid velocity field and the macroscopic average orientation field of the nematic liquid crystal molecules. Mathematically, this system couples the Navier-Stokes equation and the harmonic heat flow into the unit sphere. It is very challenging to analyze such a system by establishing the existence, uniqueness, and (partial) regularity of global (weak/large) solutions, with many basic questions to be further exploited. In this talk, I will report some results we obtained from the last few years.<br />

Title: Finite energy methods for the 1D isentropic Euler equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will present some recent results concerning the 1D isentropic Euler equations using the theory of compensated compactness in the framework of finite energy solutions. In particular, I will discuss the convergence of the vanishing viscosity limit of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations to the Euler equations in one space dimension. I will also discuss how the techniques developed for this problem can be applied to the existence theory for the spherically symmetric Euler equations and the transonic nozzle problem. One feature of these three problems is the lack of a priori estimates in the space $L^\infty$, which prevent the application of the standard theory for the 1D Euler equations.<br />

Title: On the vanishing viscosity limit in incompressible flows<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will discuss recent results on the analysis of the vanishing viscosity limit, that is, whether solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations converge to solutions of the Euler equations, for incompressible fluids when walls are present. At small viscosity, a viscous boundary layer arise near the walls where large gradients of velocity and vorticity may form and propagate in the bulk (if the boundary layer separates). A rigorous justification of Prandtl approximation, in absence of analyticity or monotonicity of the data, is available essentially only in the linear or weakly linear regime under no-slip boundary conditions. I will present in particular a detailed analysis of the boundary layer for an Oseen-type equation (linearization around a steady Euler flow) in general smooth domains.<br />
<br />

Title: Hydrodynamic Limits in Kinetic Equations with Boundary Layer Effects<br />
<br />
Abstract: Hydrodynamic limits concern the rigorous derivation of fluid equations from kinetic theory. In bounded domains, kinetic boundary corrections (i.e. boundary layers) play a crucial role. In this talk, I will discuss a fresh formulation to characterize the boundary layer with geometric correction, and in particular, its applications in 2D smooth convex domains with in-flow or diffusive boundary conditions. We will focus on some newly developed techniques to justify the asymptotic expansion, e.g. weighted regularity in Milne problems and boundary layer decomposition.<br />

Title: Global existence of small solutions to a model wave-Klein-Gordon system in 2D<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk deals with the problem of global existence of solutions to a quadratic coupled wave-Klein-Gordon system in space dimension 2, when initial data are small, smooth and mildly decaying at infinity.Some physical models, especially related to general relativity, have shown the importance of studying such systems. At present, most of the existing results concern the 3-dimensional case or that of compactly supported initial data. We content ourselves here with studying the case of a model quadratic quasi-linear non-linearity, that expresses in terms of « null forms » .<br />
Our aim is to obtain some energy estimates on the solution when some Klainerman vector fields are acting on it, and sharp uniform estimates. The former ones are recovered making systematically use of normal forms’ arguments for quasi-linear equations, in their para-differential version, whereas we derive the latter ones by deducing a system of ordinary differential equations from the starting partial differential system. We hope this strategy will lead us in the future to treat the case of the most general non-linearities.<br />

Title: Quantitative homogenization in a balanced random environment<br />
<br />
Abstract: Stochastic homogenization of discrete difference operators is closely related to the convergence of random walk in a random environment (RWRE) to its limiting process. In this talk we discuss non-divergence form difference operators in an i.i.d random environment and the corresponding process—a random walk in a balanced random environment in the integer lattice Z^d. We first quantify the ergodicity of the environment viewed from the point of view of the particle. As consequences, we obtain algebraic rates of convergence for the quenched central limit theorem of the RWRE and for the homogenization of both elliptic and parabolic non-divergence form difference operators. Joint work with J. Peterson (Purdue) and H. V. Tran (UW-Madison). <br />

Title: PDE aspects of the Navier-Stokes equations and simpler models<br />
<br />
Abstract: Does the Navier-Stokes equation give a reasonably complete description of fluid motion? There seems to be no empirical evidence which would suggest a negative answer (in regimes which are not extreme), but from the purely mathematical point of view, the answer may not be so clear. In the lecture, I will discuss some of the possible scenarios and open problems for both the full equations and simplified models.<br />

Title: Stability of vacuum for the Landau equation with moderately soft potentials<br />
<br />
Abstract: Consider the Landau equation with moderately soft potentials in the whole space. We prove that sufficiently small and localized regular initial data give rise to unique global-in-time smooth solutions. Moreover, the solutions approach that of the free transport equation as $t\to +\infty$. This is the first stability of vacuum result for a binary collisional kinetic model featuring a long-range interaction.<br />

Title: Convergence to the complex balanced equilibrium for some reaction-diffusion systems with boundary equilibria.<br />
<br />
Abstract: We first analyze a three-species system with boundary equilibria in some stoichiometric classes and study the rate of convergence to the complex balanced equilibrium. Then we prove similar results on the convergence to the positive equilibrium for a fairly general two-species reversible reaction-diffusion network with boundary equilibria.<br />

Title: Gradient estimate for complex Monge-Ampere equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider complex Monge-Ampere equations on a compact Kahler manifold. Previous gradient estimates of the solution all require some derivative bound of the right hand side. I will talk about how to get gradient estimate in $L^p$ and $L^{\infty}$, depending only on the continuity of the right hand side.<br />

Title: The theorem of characterization of the Strong Maximum Principle<br />
<br />
Abstract: The main goal of this talk is to discuss the classical (well known) versions of the strong maximum principle of Hopf and Oleinik, as well as the generalized maximum principle of Protter and Weinberger. These results serve as steps towards the theorem of characterization of the strong maximum principle of the speaker, Molina-Meyer and Amann, which substantially generalizes a popular result of Berestycki, Nirenberg and Varadhan.<br />

Title: On approximation of time-fractional fully nonlinear equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: Fractional calculus has been studied extensively these years in wide fields. In this talk, we consider time-fractional fully nonlinear equations. Giga-Namba (2017) recently has established the well-posedness (i.e., existence/uniqueness) of viscosity solutions to this equation. We introduce a natural approximation in terms of elliptic theory and prove the convergence. The talk is based on the joint work with Y. Giga (Univ. of Tokyo) and Q. Liu (Fukuoka Univ.) <br />

Title: Some recent results on mathematical analysis of Ericksen-Leslie System<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Ericksen-Leslie system is the governing equation that describes the hydrodynamic evolution of nematic liquid crystal materials, first introduced by J. Ericksen and F. Leslie back in 1960's. It is a coupling system between the underlying fluid velocity field and the macroscopic average orientation field of the nematic liquid crystal molecules. Mathematically, this system couples the Navier-Stokes equation and the harmonic heat flow into the unit sphere. It is very challenging to analyze such a system by establishing the existence, uniqueness, and (partial) regularity of global (weak/large) solutions, with many basic questions to be further exploited. In this talk, I will report some results we obtained from the last few years.<br />

Title: Finite energy methods for the 1D isentropic Euler equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will present some recent results concerning the 1D isentropic Euler equations using the theory of compensated compactness in the framework of finite energy solutions. In particular, I will discuss the convergence of the vanishing viscosity limit of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations to the Euler equations in one space dimension. I will also discuss how the techniques developed for this problem can be applied to the existence theory for the spherically symmetric Euler equations and the transonic nozzle problem. One feature of these three problems is the lack of a priori estimates in the space $L^\infty$, which prevent the application of the standard theory for the 1D Euler equations.<br />
<br />

Title: On the vanishing viscosity limit in incompressible flows<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will discuss recent results on the analysis of the vanishing viscosity limit, that is, whether solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations converge to solutions of the Euler equations, for incompressible fluids when walls are present. At small viscosity, a viscous boundary layer arise near the walls where large gradients of velocity and vorticity may form and propagate in the bulk (if the boundary layer separates). A rigorous justification of Prandtl approximation, in absence of analyticity or monotonicity of the data, is available essentially only in the linear or weakly linear regime under no-slip boundary conditions. I will present in particular a detailed analysis of the boundary layer for an Oseen-type equation (linearization around a steady Euler flow) in general smooth domains.<br />
<br />

Title: Hydrodynamic Limits in Kinetic Equations with Boundary Layer Effects<br />
<br />
Abstract: Hydrodynamic limits concern the rigorous derivation of fluid equations from kinetic theory. In bounded domains, kinetic boundary corrections (i.e. boundary layers) play a crucial role. In this talk, I will discuss a fresh formulation to characterize the boundary layer with geometric correction, and in particular, its applications in 2D smooth convex domains with in-flow or diffusive boundary conditions. We will focus on some newly developed techniques to justify the asymptotic expansion, e.g. weighted regularity in Milne problems and boundary layer decomposition.<br />

Title: Global existence of small solutions to a model wave-Klein-Gordon system in 2D<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk deals with the problem of global existence of solutions to a quadratic coupled wave-Klein-Gordon system in space dimension 2, when initial data are small, smooth and mildly decaying at infinity.Some physical models, especially related to general relativity, have shown the importance of studying such systems. At present, most of the existing results concern the 3-dimensional case or that of compactly supported initial data. We content ourselves here with studying the case of a model quadratic quasi-linear non-linearity, that expresses in terms of « null forms » .<br />
Our aim is to obtain some energy estimates on the solution when some Klainerman vector fields are acting on it, and sharp uniform estimates. The former ones are recovered making systematically use of normal forms’ arguments for quasi-linear equations, in their para-differential version, whereas we derive the latter ones by deducing a system of ordinary differential equations from the starting partial differential system. We hope this strategy will lead us in the future to treat the case of the most general non-linearities.<br />

Title: Construction of solutions to a Hamilton-Jacobi equation with a maximum constraint and some uniqueness properties<br />
<br />
A biological evolution model involving trait as space variable has a interesting feature phenomena called Dirac concentration of density as diffusion coefficient vanishes. The limiting equation from the model can be formulated by Hamilton Jacobi equation with a maximum constraint. In this talk, I will present a way of constructing a solution to a constraint Hamilton Jacobi equation together with some uniqueness and non-uniqueness properties.<br />

Title: Low Regularity Solutions for Gravity Water Waves<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider the local well-posedness of the Cauchy problem for the gravity water waves equations, which model the free interface between a fluid and air in the presence of gravity. It has been known that by using dispersive effects, one can lower the regularity threshold for well-posedness below that which is attainable by energy estimates alone. Using a paradifferential reduction of Alazard-Burq-Zuily and low regularity Strichartz estimates, we apply this idea to the well-posedness of the gravity water waves equations in arbitrary space dimension. Further, in two space dimensions, we discuss how one can apply local smoothing effects to further extend this result.<br />

Title: Flocking Models with Singular Interaction Kernels<br />
<br />
Abstract: Many biological systems exhibit the property of self-organization, the defining feature of which is coherent, large-scale motion arising from underlying short-range interactions between the agents that make up the system. In this talk, we give an overview of some simple models that have been used to describe the so-called flocking phenomenon. Within the family of models that we consider (of which the Cucker-Smale model is the canonical example), writing down the relevant set of equations amounts to choosing a kernel that governs the interaction between agents. We focus on the recent line of research that treats the case where the interaction kernel is singular. In particular, we discuss some new results on the wellposedness and long-time dynamics of the Euler Alignment model and the Shvydkoy-Tadmor model.<br />

Title: Sufficient conditions for local solvability of some degenerate partial differential operators <br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk we will give sufficient conditions for the local solvability of a class of degenerate second order linear partial differential operators with smooth coefficients. The class under consideration, inspired by some generalizations of the Kannai operator, is characterized by the presence of a complex subprincipal symbol. By giving suitable conditions on the subprincipal part and using the technique of a priori estimates, we will show that the operators in the class are at least $L^2$ to $L^2$ locally solvable.<br />

Title: The role of Energy in Regularity<br />
<br />
Abstract: The calculus of variations asks us to minimize some energy and then describe the shape/properties of the minimizers. It is perhaps a surprising fact that minimizers to ``nice" energies are more regular than one, a priori, assumes. A useful tool for understanding this phenomenon is the Euler-Lagrange equation, which is a partial differential equation satisfied by the critical points of the energy.<br />
<br />
However, as we teach our calculus students, not every critical point is a minimizer. In this talk we will discuss some techniques to distinguish the behavior of general critical points from that of minimizers. We will then outline how these techniques may be used to solve some central open problems in the field.<br />
<br />
We will then turn the tables, and examine PDEs which look like they should be an Euler-Lagrange equation but for which there is no underlying energy. For some of these PDEs the solutions will regularize (as if there were an underlying energy) for others, pathological behavior can occur.<br />

Title: Inverse transport theory and related applications.<br />
<br />
Abstract: The inverse transport problem consists of reconstructing the optical properties of a medium from boundary measurements. It finds applications in a variety of fields. In particular, radiative transfer equation (a linear transport equation) models the photon propagation in a medium in optical tomography. In this talk we will address results on the determination of these optical parameters. Moreover, the connection between the inverse transport problem and the Calderon problem will also be discussed.<br />

Title: The propagations of uniform upper bounds fo the spatially homogeneous relativistic Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we consider the propagation of the uniform upper bounds<br />
for the spatially homogenous relativistic Boltzmann equation. For this, we establish two<br />
types of estimates for the the gain part of the collision operator: namely, a potential<br />
type estimate and a relativistic hyper-surface integral estimate. We then combine them<br />
using the relativistic counter-part of the Carlemann representation to derive a uniform<br />
control of the gain part, which gives the desired propagation of the uniform bounds of<br />
the solution. Some applications of the results are also considered. This is a joint work <br />
with Jin Woo Jang and Robert M. Strain.<br />

Abstract: We consider gravity water waves in two space dimensions, with finite or infinite depth. Assuming some uniform scale invariant Sobolev bounds for the solutions, we prove local energy decay (Morawetz) estimates globally in time. Our result is uniform in the infinite depth limit. <br />

Title: Periodic homogenization of Dirichlet problems in perforated domains: a unified proof<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we present a unified proof to establish periodic homogenization for the Dirichlet problems associated to the Laplace operator in perforated domains; here the uniformity is with respect to the ratio between scaling factors of the perforation holes and the periodicity. Our method recovers, for critical scaling of the hole-cell ratio, the “strange term coming from nowhere” found by Cioranescu and Murat, and it works at the same time for other settings of hole-cell ratios. Moreover, the method is naturally based on analysis of rescaled cell problems and hence reveals the intrinsic connections among the apparently different homogenization behaviors in those different settings. We also show how to quantify the approach to get error estimates and corrector results.<br />

Title: The theorem of characterization of the Strong Maximum Principle<br />
<br />
Abstract: The main goal of this talk is to discuss the classical (well known) versions of the strong maximum principle of Hopf and Oleinik, as well as the generalized maximum principle of Protter and Weinberger. These results serve as steps towards the theorem of characterization of the strong maximum principle of the speaker, Molina-Meyer and Amann, which substantially generalizes a popular result of Berestycki, Nirenberg and Varadhan.<br />

Title: On approximation of time-fractional fully nonlinear equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: Fractional calculus has been studied extensively these years in wide fields. In this talk, we consider time-fractional fully nonlinear equations. Giga-Namba (2017) recently has established the well-posedness (i.e., existence/uniqueness) of viscosity solutions to this equation. We introduce a natural approximation in terms of elliptic theory and prove the convergence. The talk is based on the joint work with Y. Giga (Univ. of Tokyo) and Q. Liu (Fukuoka Univ.) <br />

Title: Some recent results on mathematical analysis of Ericksen-Leslie System<br />
<br />
Abstract: The Ericksen-Leslie system is the governing equation that describes the hydrodynamic evolution of nematic liquid crystal materials, first introduced by J. Ericksen and F. Leslie back in 1960's. It is a coupling system between the underlying fluid velocity field and the macroscopic average orientation field of the nematic liquid crystal molecules. Mathematically, this system couples the Navier-Stokes equation and the harmonic heat flow into the unit sphere. It is very challenging to analyze such a system by establishing the existence, uniqueness, and (partial) regularity of global (weak/large) solutions, with many basic questions to be further exploited. In this talk, I will report some results we obtained from the last few years.<br />

Title: Finite energy methods for the 1D isentropic Euler equations<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, I will present some recent results concerning the 1D isentropic Euler equations using the theory of compensated compactness in the framework of finite energy solutions. In particular, I will discuss the convergence of the vanishing viscosity limit of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations to the Euler equations in one space dimension. I will also discuss how the techniques developed for this problem can be applied to the existence theory for the spherically symmetric Euler equations and the transonic nozzle problem. One feature of these three problems is the lack of a priori estimates in the space $L^\infty$, which prevent the application of the standard theory for the 1D Euler equations.<br />

Title: On the vanishing viscosity limit in incompressible flows<br />
<br />
Abstract: I will discuss recent results on the analysis of the vanishing viscosity limit, that is, whether solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations converge to solutions of the Euler equations, for incompressible fluids when walls are present. At small viscosity, a viscous boundary layer arise near the walls where large gradients of velocity and vorticity may form and propagate in the bulk (if the boundary layer separates). A rigorous justification of Prandtl approximation, in absence of analyticity or monotonicity of the data, is available essentially only in the linear or weakly linear regime under no-slip boundary conditions. I will present in particular a detailed analysis of the boundary layer for an Oseen-type equation (linearization around a steady Euler flow) in general smooth domains.<br />

Title: Hydrodynamic Limits in Kinetic Equations with Boundary Layer Effects<br />
<br />
Abstract: Hydrodynamic limits concern the rigorous derivation of fluid equations from kinetic theory. In bounded domains, kinetic boundary corrections (i.e. boundary layers) play a crucial role. In this talk, I will discuss a fresh formulation to characterize the boundary layer with geometric correction, and in particular, its applications in 2D smooth convex domains with in-flow or diffusive boundary conditions. We will focus on some newly developed techniques to justify the asymptotic expansion, e.g. weighted regularity in Milne problems and boundary layer decomposition.<br />

Title: Global existence of small solutions to a model wave-Klein-Gordon system in 2D<br />
<br />
Abstract: This talk deals with the problem of global existence of solutions to a quadratic coupled wave-Klein-Gordon system in space dimension 2, when initial data are small, smooth and mildly decaying at infinity.Some physical models, especially related to general relativity, have shown the importance of studying such systems. At present, most of the existing results concern the 3-dimensional case or that of compactly supported initial data. We content ourselves here with studying the case of a model quadratic quasi-linear non-linearity, that expresses in terms of « null forms » .<br />
Our aim is to obtain some energy estimates on the solution when some Klainerman vector fields are acting on it, and sharp uniform estimates. The former ones are recovered making systematically use of normal forms’ arguments for quasi-linear equations, in their para-differential version, whereas we derive the latter ones by deducing a system of ordinary differential equations from the starting partial differential system. We hope this strategy will lead us in the future to treat the case of the most general non-linearities.<br />

Title: Construction of solutions to a Hamilton-Jacobi equation with a maximum constraint and some uniqueness properties<br />
<br />
A biological evolution model involving trait as space variable has a interesting feature phenomena called Dirac concentration of density as diffusion coefficient vanishes. The limiting equation from the model can be formulated by Hamilton Jacobi equation with a maximum constraint. In this talk, I will present a way of constructing a solution to a constraint Hamilton Jacobi equation together with some uniqueness and non-uniqueness properties.<br />

Title: Low Regularity Solutions for Gravity Water Waves<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider the local well-posedness of the Cauchy problem for the gravity water waves equations, which model the free interface between a fluid and air in the presence of gravity. It has been known that by using dispersive effects, one can lower the regularity threshold for well-posedness below that which is attainable by energy estimates alone. Using a paradifferential reduction of Alazard-Burq-Zuily and low regularity Strichartz estimates, we apply this idea to the well-posedness of the gravity water waves equations in arbitrary space dimension. Further, in two space dimensions, we discuss how one can apply local smoothing effects to further extend this result.<br />

Title: Flocking Models with Singular Interaction Kernels<br />
<br />
Abstract: Many biological systems exhibit the property of self-organization, the defining feature of which is coherent, large-scale motion arising from underlying short-range interactions between the agents that make up the system. In this talk, we give an overview of some simple models that have been used to describe the so-called flocking phenomenon. Within the family of models that we consider (of which the Cucker-Smale model is the canonical example), writing down the relevant set of equations amounts to choosing a kernel that governs the interaction between agents. We focus on the recent line of research that treats the case where the interaction kernel is singular. In particular, we discuss some new results on the wellposedness and long-time dynamics of the Euler Alignment model and the Shvydkoy-Tadmor model.<br />

Title: Sufficient conditions for local solvability of some degenerate partial differential operators <br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk we will give sufficient conditions for the local solvability of a class of degenerate second order linear partial differential operators with smooth coefficients. The class under consideration, inspired by some generalizations of the Kannai operator, is characterized by the presence of a complex subprincipal symbol. By giving suitable conditions on the subprincipal part and using the technique of a priori estimates, we will show that the operators in the class are at least $L^2$ to $L^2$ locally solvable.<br />

Title: The role of Energy in Regularity<br />
<br />
Abstract: The calculus of variations asks us to minimize some energy and then describe the shape/properties of the minimizers. It is perhaps a surprising fact that minimizers to ``nice" energies are more regular than one, a priori, assumes. A useful tool for understanding this phenomenon is the Euler-Lagrange equation, which is a partial differential equation satisfied by the critical points of the energy.<br />
<br />
However, as we teach our calculus students, not every critical point is a minimizer. In this talk we will discuss some techniques to distinguish the behavior of general critical points from that of minimizers. We will then outline how these techniques may be used to solve some central open problems in the field.<br />
<br />
We will then turn the tables, and examine PDEs which look like they should be an Euler-Lagrange equation but for which there is no underlying energy. For some of these PDEs the solutions will regularize (as if there were an underlying energy) for others, pathological behavior can occur.<br />

Title: Inverse transport theory and related applications.<br />
<br />
Abstract: The inverse transport problem consists of reconstructing the optical properties of a medium from boundary measurements. It finds applications in a variety of fields. In particular, radiative transfer equation (a linear transport equation) models the photon propagation in a medium in optical tomography. In this talk we will address results on the determination of these optical parameters. Moreover, the connection between the inverse transport problem and the Calderon problem will also be discussed.<br />

Title: The propagations of uniform upper bounds fo the spatially homogeneous relativistic Boltzmann equation<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we consider the propagation of the uniform upper bounds<br />
for the spatially homogenous relativistic Boltzmann equation. For this, we establish two<br />
types of estimates for the the gain part of the collision operator: namely, a potential<br />
type estimate and a relativistic hyper-surface integral estimate. We then combine them<br />
using the relativistic counter-part of the Carlemann representation to derive a uniform<br />
control of the gain part, which gives the desired propagation of the uniform bounds of<br />
the solution. Some applications of the results are also considered. This is a joint work <br />
with Jin Woo Jang and Robert M. Strain.<br />

Title: A Morawetz inequality for water waves.<br />
<br />
Authors: Thomas Alazard, Mihaela Ifrim, Daniel Tataru.<br />
<br />
Abstract: We consider gravity water waves in two space dimensions, with finite or infinite depth. Assuming some uniform scale invariant Sobolev bounds for the solutions, we prove local energy decay (Morawetz) estimates globally in time. Our result is uniform in the infinite depth limit. <br />

Title: Periodic homogenization of Dirichlet problems in perforated domains: a unified proof<br />
<br />
Abstract: In this talk, we present a unified proof to establish periodic homogenization for the Dirichlet problems associated to the Laplace operator in perforated domains; here the uniformity is with respect to the ratio between scaling factors of the perforation holes and the periodicity. Our method recovers, for critical scaling of the hole-cell ratio, the “strange term coming from nowhere” found by Cioranescu and Murat, and it works at the same time for other settings of hole-cell ratios. Moreover, the method is naturally based on analysis of rescaled cell problems and hence reveals the intrinsic connections among the apparently different homogenization behaviors in those different settings. We also show how to quantify the approach to get error estimates and corrector results.<br />

===Beomjun Choi===<br />
In this talk, we first introduce the inverse mean curvature flow and its well known application in the the proof of Riemannian Penrose inequality by Huisken and Ilmanen. Then our main result on the existence and behavior of convex non-compact solution will be discussed. <br />
<br />
The key ingredient is a priori interior in time estimate on the inverse mean curvature in terms of the aperture of supporting cone at infinity. This is a joint work with P. Daskalopoulos and I will also mention the recent work with P.-K. Hung concerning the evolution of singular hypersurfaces.</div>Hung
