La géométrie stochastique est l'étude d'objets issus de la géométrie euclidienne dont le comportement relève du hasard. Si les premiers problèmes de probabilités géométriques ont été posés sous la forme de casse-têtes mathématiques, le domaine s'est considérablement développé depuis une cinquantaine d'années de part ses multiples applications, notamment en sciences expérimentales, et aussi ses liens avec l'analyse d'algorithmes géométriques. L'exposé sera centré sur la description des polytopes aléatoires qui sont construits comme enveloppes convexes d'un ensemble aléatoire de points. On s'intéressera plus particulièrement aux cas d'un nuage de points uniformes dans un corps convexe fixé ou d'un nuage de points gaussiens et on se focalisera sur l'étude asymptotique de grandeurs aléatoires associées, en particulier via des calculs de variances limites. Seront également évoqués d'autres modèles classiques de la géométrie aléatoire tels que la mosaïque de Poisson-Voronoi.

We will give a survey of recent research progress on ancient or eternal solutions to geometric flows such as the Ricci flow, the Mean Curvature flow and the Yamabe flow.
We will address the classification of ancient solutions to parabolic equations as well as the construction of new ancient solutions from the gluing of two or more solitons.

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).

Post-edited  My favorite groups
Ghys, Etienne (Auteur de la Conférence) | CIRM (Editeur )

The world of groups is vast and meant for wandering! During this week, I will give seven short talks describing seven groups, or class of groups, that I find fascinating. These seven talks will be independent and I will have no intention of being exhaustive (this would be silly since there are uncountably many groups, even finitely generated!). In each talk, I will introduce the hero, state one or two results, and formulate one or two conjectures. The world of groups is vast and meant for wandering!

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 $II_1$.

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.

Recently, Armstrong, Reiner and Rhoades associated with any (well generated) complex reflection group two parking spaces, and conjectured their isomorphism. This has to be seen as a generalisation of the bijection between non-crossing and non-nesting partitions, both counted by the Catalan numbers. In this talk, I will review the conjecture and discuss a new approach towards its proof, based on the geometry of the discriminant of a complex reflection group.

A sub-Riemannian distance is obtained when minimizing lengths of paths which are tangent to a distribution of planes. Such distances differ substantially from Riemannian distances, even in the simplest example, the 3-dimensional Heisenberg group. This raises many questions in metric geometry: embeddability in Banach spaces, bi-Lipschitz or bi-Hölder comparison of various examples. Emphasis will be put on Gromov's results on the Hölder homeomorphism problem, and on a quasisymmetric version of it motivated by Riemannian geometry.

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

There are already too many introductory articles on Khovanov homology and certainly another is not needed. On the other hand by now - 15 years after the invention of subject - it is quite easy to get lost after having taken those first few steps. What could be useful is a rough guide to some of the developments over that time and the summer school Quantum Topology at the CIRM in Luminy has provided the ideal opportunity for thinking about what such a guide should look like.
It is quite a risky undertaking because it is all too easy to offend by omission, misrepresentation or other. I have not attempted a complete literature survey and inevitably these notes reflects my personal view, jaundiced as it may often be. My apologies for any offence caused.
I would like to express my warm thanks to Lukas Lewark, Alex Shumakovitch, Liam Watson and Ben Webster.

In this lecture I will describe a framework for the Fredholm analysis of non-elliptic problems both on manifolds without boundary and manifolds with boundary, with a view towards wave propagation on Kerr-de-Sitter spaces, which is the key analytic ingredient for showing the stability of black holes (see Peter Hintz' lecture). This lecture focuses on the general setup such as microlocal ellipticity, real principal type propagation, radial points and generalizations, as well as (potentially) normally hyperbolic trapping, as well as the role of resonances.

I will describe joint work with Thomas Kragh proving that closed exact Lagrangians in cotangent bundles are simply homotopy equivalent to the base. The main two ideas are (i) a Floer theoretic model for the Whitehead torsion of the projection from the Lagrangian to the base, and (ii) a large scale deformation of the Lagrangian which allows a computation of this torsion.

Reidemeister torsion was the first topological invariant that could distinguish between spaces which were homotopy equivalent but not homeomorphic. The Cheeger-Müller theorem established that the Reidemeister torsion of a closed manifold can be computed analytically. I will report on joint work with Frédéric Rochon and David Sher on finding a topological expression for the analytic torsion of a manifold with fibered cusp ends. Examples of these manifolds include most locally symmetric spaces of rank one. We establish our theorem by controlling the behavior of analytic torsion as a space degenerates to form hyperbolic cusp ends.

Multi angle  Logarithms and deformation quantization
Alekseev, Anton (Auteur de la Conférence) | CIRM (Editeur )

We prove the statement$/$conjecture of M. Kontsevich on the existence of the logarithmic formality morphism $\mathcal{U}^{log}$. This question was open since 1999, and the main obstacle was the presence of $dr/r$ type singularities near the boundary $r = 0$ in the integrals over compactified configuration spaces. The novelty of our approach is the use of local torus actions on configuration spaces of points in the upper half-plane. It gives rise to a version of Stokes' formula for differential forms with singularities at the boundary which implies the formality property of $\mathcal{U}^{log}$. We also show that the logarithmic formality morphism admits a globalization from $\mathbb{R}^{d}$ to an arbitrary smooth manifold. We prove the statement$/$conjecture of M.

The characteristic Cauchy problem for linear wave equations consists of imposing initial values for the solution on a characteristic hypersurface instead of initial values for the function and its normal derivative on a spacelike Cauchy hypersurface. After a general introduction to the relevant notions we show that this problem is well posed on globally hyperbolic Lorentzian manifolds under suitable assumptions. This is joint work with Roger Tagne Wafo and it generalizes classical results by Hörmander.

Erdös and Rényi introduced a model for studying random graphs of a given "density" and proved that there is a sharp threshold at which lower density random graphs are disconnected and higher density ones are connected. Motivated by ideas in geometric group theory we will explain some new threshold theorems we have discovered for random graphs. We will then explain applications of these results to the geometry of Coxeter groups. Some of this talk will be on joint work with Hagen and Sisto; other parts are joint work with Hagen, Susse, and Falgas-Ravry.
