La théorie des valeurs extrêmes décrit le comportement du maximum d'une suite de variables aléatoires i.i.d. à valeurs réelles. L'une des distributions limites possibles, la loi de Gumbel, apparaît également dans l'asymptotique en bruit faible du temps de transition réactive pour des équations différentielles stochastiques métastables. Nous décrivons des résultats récents en dimension 1 et leur interprétation, et donnons un résultat en dimension 2, motivé par le phénomène de synchronisation d'oscillateurs couplés.

These lectures will address the dynamics of vector fields or diffeomorphisms of compact manifolds. For the study of generic properties or for the construction of examples, it is often useful to be able to perturb a system. This generally leads to delicate problems: a local modification of the dynamics may cause a radical change in the behavior of the orbits. For the $C^1$-topology, various techniques have been developed which allow to perturb while controlling the dynamics: closing and connection of orbits, perturbation of the tangent dynamics...

The notion of singular hyperbolicity for vector fields has been introduced by Morales, Pacifico and Pujals in order to extend the classical uniform hyperbolicity and include the presence of singularities. This covers the Lorenz attractor. I will present a joint work with Dawei Yang which proves a dichotomy in the space of three-dimensional $C^{1}$-vector fields, conjectured by J. Palis: every three-dimensional vector field can be $C^{1}$-approximated by one which is singular hyperbolic or by one which exhibits a homoclinic tangency.

Post-edited  Which geodesic flows are left-handed?
Dehornoy, Pierre (Auteur de la Conférence) | CIRM (Editeur )

Left-handed flows are 3-dimensional flows which have a particular topological property, namely that every pair of periodic orbits is negatively linked. This property (introduced by Ghys in 2007) implies the existence of as many Bikrhoff sections as possible, and therefore allows to reduce the flow to a suspension in many different ways. It then becomes natural to look for examples. A construction of Birkhoff (1917) suggests that geodesic flows are good candidates. In this conference we determine on which hyperbolic orbifolds is the geodesic flow left-handed: the answer is that yes if the surface is a sphere with three cone points, and no otherwise.

The aim is to describe the distribution of immune status in an age-structured population on the basis of a within-host sub-model [1] for continuous waning and occasional boosting. Inspired by both Feller's fundamental work [2] and the more recent delay equation formulation of physiologically structured populations [3,4], we derive, for a given force of infection, a linear renewal equation that can be solved by successive approximation, i.e., by generation expansion (with the generation number corresponding to the number of times an individual became infected).
In joint work in progress with Wilfred de Graaf, Peter Teunis and Mirjam Kretzschmar we want to use either the generation expansion or an invariant/stable distribution as the starting point for the efficient computation of coarse statistics.

I will discuss recent applications of microlocal analysis to the study of hyperbolic flows, including geodesic flows on negatively curved manifolds. The key idea is to view the equation $(X + \lambda)u = f$ , where $X$ is the generator of the flow, as a scattering problem. The role of spatial infinity is taken by the infinity in the frequency space. We will concentrate on the case of noncompact manifolds, featuring a delicate interplay between shift to higher frequencies and escaping in the physical space. I will show meromorphic continuation of the resolvent of $X$; the poles, known as Pollicott-Ruelle resonances, describe exponential decay of correlations. As an application, I will prove that the Ruelle zeta function continues meromorphically for flows on non-compact manifolds (the compact case, known as Smale's conjecture, was recently settled by Giulietti-Liverani- Pollicott and a simple microlocal proof was given by Zworski and the speaker).

We will consider (sub)shifts with complexity such that the difference from $n$ to $n+1$ is constant for all large $n$. The shifts that arise naturally from interval exchange transformations belong to this class. An interval exchange transformation on d intervals has at most $d/2$ ergodic probability measures. We look to establish the correct bound for shifts with constant complexity growth. To this end, we give our current bound and discuss further improvements when more assumptions are allowed.

Post-edited  A universal hypercyclic representation
Glasner, Eli (Auteur de la Conférence) | CIRM (Editeur )

For any countable group, and also for any locally compact second countable, compactly generated topological group, $G$, there exists a "universal" hypercyclic representation on a Hilbert space, in the sense that it simultaneously models every possible ergodic probability measure preserving free action of $G$. I will discuss the original proof of this theorem (a joint work with Benjy Weiss) and then, at the end of the talk, say some words about the development of this idea and its applications as expounded in a subsequent work of Sophie Grivaux.

I will present results of three studies, performed in collaboration with M.Benli, L.Bowen, A.Dudko, R.Kravchenko and T.Nagnibeda, concerning the invariant and characteristic random subgroups in some groups of geometric origin, including hyperbolic groups, mapping class groups, groups of intermediate growth and branch groups. The role of totally non free actions will be emphasized. This will be used to explain why branch groups have infinitely many factor representations of type $II_1$.

I will discuss recent progress on understanding the dimension of self-similar sets and measures. The main conjecture in this field is that the only way that the dimension of such a fractal can be "non-full" is if the semigroup of contractions which define it is not free. The result I will discuss is that "non-full" dimension implies "almost non-freeness", in the sense that there are distinct words in the semigroup which are extremely close together (super-exponentially in their lengths). Applications include resolution of some conjectures of Furstenberg on the dimension of sumsets and, together with work of Shmerkin, progress on the absolute continuity of Bernoulli convolutions. The main new ingredient is a statement in additive combinatorics concerning the structure of measures whose entropy does not grow very much under convolution. If time permits I will discuss the analogous results in higher dimensions. I will discuss recent progress on understanding the dimension of self-similar sets and measures.

An endomorphism of a finitely generated free group naturally descends to an injective endomorphism on the stable quotient. We establish a geometric incarnation of this fact : an expanding irreducible train track map inducing an endomorphism of the fundamental group determines an expanding irreducible train track representative of the injective endomorphism of the stable quotient. As an application, we prove that the property of having fully irreducible monodromy for a splitting of a hyperbolic free-by-cyclic group G depends only on the component of the BNS invariant $\sum \left ( G \right )$ containing the associated homomorphism to the integers. In particular, it follows that if G is the mapping torus of an atoroidal fully irreducible automorphism of a free group and if the union of $\sum \left ( G \right ) $ and $\sum \left ( G \right )$ is connected then for every splitting of $G$ as a (f.g. free)-by-(infinite cyclic) group the monodromy is fully irreducible.
This talk is based on joint work with Spencer Dowdall and Christopher Leininger.

In this international farewell address about 35 years of research on Dynamic energy Budget theory, I review the ontogeny of the theory, and discuss background, motivation, start, milestones and outlook from a personal perspective. The effort is framed as a case study in Theoretical Biology.

The classic mean ergodic theorem has been extended in numerous ways: multiple averages, polynomial iterates, weighted averages, along with combinations of these extensions. I will give an overview of these advances and the different techniques that have been used, focusing on convergence results and what can be said about the limits.

Post-edited  Darcy problem and crowd motion modeling
Maury, Bertrand (Auteur de la Conférence) | CIRM (Editeur )

We describe here formal analogies between the Darcy equations, that describe the flow of a viscous fluid in a porous medium, and some problems arising from the handing of congestion in crowd motion models.
At the microscopic level, individuals are identified to rigid discs, and the dual handling of the non overlapping constraint leads to discrete Darcy-like equations with a unilateral constraint that involves the velocities and interaction pressures, and that are set on the contact network. At the macroscopic level, a similar problem is obtained, that is set on the congested zone.
We emphasize the differences between the two settings: at the macroscopic level, a straight use of the maximum principle shows that congestion actually favors evacuation, which is in contradiction with experimental evidence. On the contrary, in the microscopic setting, the very particular structure of the discrete differential operators makes it possible to reproduce observed "Stop and Go waves", and the so called "Faster is Slower" effect.

We study cascades of bifurcations in a simple family of maps on the circle, and connect this behavior to the geometry of an absolute period leaf in genus $2$. The presentation includes pictures of an exotic foliation of the upper half plane, computed with the aid of the Möller-Zagier formula.

In particular, I will present results about computability of topological entropy for SFTs and measure-theoretic entropy.

Theory of persistence modules is a rapidly developing field lying on the borderline between algebra, geometry and topology. It provides a very useful viewpoint at Morse theory, and at the same time is one of the cornerstones of topological data analysis. In the course I'll review foundations of this theory and focus on its applications to symplectic topology. In parts, the course is based on a recent work with Egor Shelukhin arXiv:1412.8277
