## Abstracts

### Scott Smith

Title: Recent progress on singular, quasi-linear stochastic PDE

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.

### Son Tu

Title: State-Constraint static Hamilton-Jacobi equations in nested domains

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).

### Jin Woo Jang

Title: On a Cauchy problem for the Landau-Boltzmann equation

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.
