Post-edited  The Onsager Theorem
De Lellis, Camillo (Auteur de la Conférence) | CIRM (Editeur )

In the fifties John Nash astonished the geometers with his celebrated isometric embedding theorems. A folkloristic explanation of his first theorem is that you should be able to put any piece of paper in your pocket without crumpling or folding it, no matter how large it is.
Ten years ago László Székelyhidi and I discovered unexpected similarities with the behavior of some classical equations in fluid dynamics. Our remark sparked a series of discoveries and works which have gone in several directions. Among them the most notable is the recent proof of Phil Isett of a long-standing conjecture of Lars Onsager in the theory of turbulent flows. In a joint work with László, Tristan Buckmaster and Vlad Vicol we improve Isett's theorem to show the existence of dissipative solutions of the incompressible Euler equations below the Onsager's threshold.

There is a very general story, due to Joyce and Kontsevich-Soibelman, which associates to a CY3 (three-dimensional Calabi-Yau) triangulated category equipped with a stability condition some rational numbers called Donaldson-Thomas (DT) invariants. The point I want to emphasise is that the wall-crossing formula, which describes how these numbers change as the stability condition is varied, takes the form of an iso-Stokes condition for a family of connections on the punctured disc, where the structure group is the infinite-dimensional group of symplectic automorphisms of an algebraic torus. I will not assume any knowledge of stability conditions, DT invariants etc. There is a very general story, due to Joyce and Kontsevich-Soibelman, which associates to a CY3 (three-dimensional Calabi-Yau) triangulated category equipped with a stability condition some rational numbers called Donaldson-Thomas (DT) invariants.

I will give an introductory talk on my recent results about $p$-adic differential equations on Berkovich curves, most of them in collaboration with J. Poineau. This includes the continuity of the radii of convergence of the equation, the finiteness of their controlling graphs, the global decomposition by the radii, a bound on the size of the controlling graph, and finally the finite dimensionality of their de Rham cohomology groups, together with some local and global index theorems relating the de Rham index to the behavior of the radii of the curve. If time permits I will say a word about some recent applications to the Riemann-Hurwitz formula.

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.

Two important examples of the determinantal point processes associated with the Hilbert spaces of holomorphic functions are the Ginibre point process and the set of zeros of the Gaussian Analytic Functions on the unit disk. In this talk, I will talk such class of determinantal point processes in greater generality. The main topics concerned are the equivalence of the reduced Palm measures and the quasi-invariance of these point processes under certain natural group action of the group of compactly supported diffeomorphisms of the phase space. This talk is based partly on the joint works with Alexander I. Bufetov and partly on a more recent joint work with Alexander I. Bufetov and Shilei Fan.

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.

We consider "higher dimensional Teichmüller discs", by which we mean complex submanifolds of Teichmüller space that contain the Teichmüller disc joining any two of its points. We prove results in the higher dimensional setting that are opposite to the one dimensional behavior: every "higher dimensional Teichmüller disc" covers a "higher dimensional Teichmüller curve" and there are only finitely many "higher dimensional Teichmüller curves" in each moduli space. The proofs use recent results in Teichmüller dynamics, especially joint work with Eskin and Filip on the Kontsevich-Zorich cocycle. Joint work with McMullen and Mukamel as well as Eskin, McMullen and Mukamel shows that exotic examples of "higher dimensional Teichmüller discs" do exist.

Post-edited  Stable rationality - Lecture 1
Pirutka, Alena (Auteur de la Conférence) | CIRM (Editeur )

Let X be a smooth and projective complex algebraic variety. Several notions, describing how close X is to projective space, have been developed: X is rational if an open subset of X is isomorphic to an open of a projective space, X is stably rational if this property holds for a product of X with some projective space, and X is unirational if X is rationally dominated by a projective space. A classical Lüroth problem is to find unirational nonrational varieties. This problem remained open till 1970th, when three types of such examples were produced: cubic threefolds (Clemens and Griffiths), some quartic threefolds (Iskovskikh and Manin), and some conic bundles (Artin et Mumford). The last examples are even not stably rational. The stable rationality of the first two examples was not known.
In a recent work C. Voisin established that a double solid ramified along a very general quartic is not stably rational. Inspired by this work, we showed that many quartic solids are not stably rational (joint work with J.-L. Colliot-Thélène). More generally, B. Totaro showed that a very general hypersurface of degree d is not stably rational if d/2 is at least the smallest integer not smaller than (n+2)/3. The same method allowed us to show that the rationality is not a deformation invariant (joint with B. Hassett and Y. Tschinkel).
In this series of lectures, we will discuss the methods to obtain the results above: the universal properties of the Chow group of zero-cycles, the decomposition of the diagonal, and the specialization arguments.

The performance of numerical algorithms, both regarding stability and complexity, can be understood in a unified way in terms of condition numbers. This requires to identify the appropriate geometric settings and to characterize condition in geometric ways.
A probabilistic analysis of numerical algorithms can be reduced to a corresponding analysis of condition numbers, which leads to fascinating problems of geometric probability and integral geometry. The most well known example is Smale's 17th problem, which asks to find a solution of a given system of n complex homogeneous polynomial equations in $n$ + 1 unknowns. This problem can be solved in average (and even smoothed) polynomial time.
In the course we will explain the concepts necessary to state and solve Smale's 17th problem. We also show how these ideas lead to new numerical algorithms for computing eigenpairs of matrices that provably run in average polynomial time. Making these algorithms more efficient or adapting them to structured settings are challenging and rewarding research problems. We intend to address some of these issues at the end of the course.

Cubic surfaces in affine three space tend to have few integral points .However certain cubics such as $x^3 + y^3 + z^3 = m$, may have many such points but very little is known. We discuss these questions for Markoff type surfaces: $x^2 +y^2 +z^2 -x\cdot y\cdot z = m$ for which a (nonlinear) descent allows for a study. Specifically that of a Hasse Principle and strong approximation, together with "class numbers" and their averages for the corresponding nonlinear group of morphims of affine three space.

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.

Retrieving an arbitrary signal from the magnitudes of its inner products with the elements of a frame is not possible in infinite dimensions. Under certain conditions, signals can be retrieved satisfactorily however.

Let $p$ be a prime number and $F$ be a non-archimedean field with finite residue class field of characteristic $p$. Understanding the category of Iwahori-Hecke modules for $SL_2(F)$ is of great interest in the study of $p$-modular smooth representations of $SL_2(F)$, as these modules naturally show up as spaces of invariant vectors under the action of the standard pro-$p$-Iwahori subgroup. In this talk, we will discuss a work in progress in which we aim to classify all non-trivial extensions between these modules and to compare them with their analogues for $p$-modular smooth representations of $SL_2(F)$ and with their Galois counterpart in the setting of the local Langlands correspondences in natural characteristic.

The alternating direction method of multipliers (ADMM) is an optimization tool of choice for several imaging inverse problems, namely due its flexibility, modularity, and efficiency. In this talk, I will begin by reviewing our earlier work on using ADMM to deal with classical problems such as deconvolution, inpainting, compressive imaging, and how we have exploited its flexibility to deal with different noise models, including Gaussian, Poissonian, and multiplicative, and with several types of regularizers (TV, frame-based analysis, synthesis, or combinations thereof). I will then describe more recent work on using ADMM for other problems, namely blind deconvolution and image segmentation, as well as very recent work where ADMM is used with plug-in learned denoisers to achieve state-of-the-art results in class-specific image deconvolution. Finally, on the theoretical front, I will describe very recent work on tackling the infamous problem of how to adjust the penalty parameter of ADMM.

We present heuristics that suggest that there is a uniform bound on the rank of $E(\mathbb{Q})$ as $E$ varies over all elliptic curves over $\mathbb{Q}$. This is joint work with Jennifer Park, John Voight, and Melanie Matchett Wood.

Post-edited  25+ years of wavelets for PDEs
Kunoth, Angela (Auteur de la Conférence) | CIRM (Editeur )

Ingrid Daubechies' construction of orthonormal wavelet bases with compact support published in 1988 started a general interest to employ these functions also for the numerical solution of partial differential equations (PDEs). Concentrating on linear elliptic and parabolic PDEs, I will start from theoretical topics such as the well-posedness of the problem in appropriate function spaces and regularity of solutions and will then address quality and optimality of approximations and related concepts from approximation the- ory. We will see that wavelet bases can serve as a basic ingredient, both for the theory as well as for algorithmic realizations. Particularly for situations where solutions exhibit singularities, wavelet concepts enable adaptive appproximations for which convergence and optimal algorithmic complexity can be established. I will describe corresponding implementations based on biorthogonal spline-wavelets.
Moreover, wavelet-related concepts have triggered new developments for efficiently solving complex systems of PDEs, as they arise from optimization problems with PDEs.

The SYZ fibration is a conjectural geometric explanation for the phenomenon of mirror symmetry for maximal degenerations of complex Calabi-Yau varieties. I will explain Kontsevich and Soibelman's construction of the SYZ fibration in the world of non-archimedean geometry, and its relations with the Minimal Model Program and Igusa's p-adic zeta functions. No prior knowledge of non-archimedean geometry is assumed. These lectures are based on joint work with Mircea Mustata and Chenyang Xu.
