Noise-induced phenomena in stochastic heat equations
Stochastic heat equations (SHE) usually refer to heat equations perturbed by noise and can be a model for the density of diffusing particles under a random potential. When the irregularity of noise is dominating the diffusion, SHE exhibits ...
Non-commutative Lp-spaces and analysis on quantum spaces
In this talk we will take a look at analysis on quantum spaces using non-commutative Lp spaces. We will first review what a non-commutative Lpspace is, and then we will see few examples of quantum spaces where Lp analysis problems arise natu...
Noncommutative Geometry. Quantum Space-Time and Diffeomorphism Invariant Geometry
A general goal of noncommutative geometry (in the sense of A. Connes) is to translate the main tools of differential geometry into the Hilbert space formalism of quantum mechanics by taking advantage of the familiar duality between spaces an...
Many aspects of the differential geometry of embedded Riemannian manifolds, including curvature, can be formulated in terms of multi-linear algebraic structures on the space of smooth functions. For matrix analogues of embedded surfaces, one...
Empirical observations have shown that for an adequate description of many random phenomena non-Gaussian processes are needed. The paths of these Markov processes necessarily have jumps. Their generators are nonlocal operators which admit a ...

Normal form reduction for unconditional well-posedness of canonical dispersive equations
Normal form method is a classical ODE technique begun by H. Poincare. Via a suitable transformation one reduce a differential equation to a simpler form, where most of nonresonant terms are cancelled. In this talk, I begin to explain the not...
Unconditional results without an unproved hypothesis such as the generalized Riemann hypothesis (GRH) are very weak for an individual number field. But if we consider a family of number fields, one can prove just as strong results as we woul...

For each natural number k, the C^k diffeomorphisms of the circle form a group with function compositions. This definition even extends to real numbers k no less than one by Hölder continuity. We survey algebraic properties of this grou...
On function field and smooth specialization of a hypersurface in the projective space
In this talk, we will discuss two interesting problems on hypersurfaces in the projective space. The first one is the absolute Galois theory on the function field of a very general hypersurface in the projective space. The other one is the c...
On the distributions of partition ranks and cranks
To explain Ramanujan's integer partition function congruences, Dyson's rank and Andrews-Garvan's crank have been introduced. The generating functions for these two partition statistics are typical examples of mock Jacobi forms and Jacobi for...
Since Fourier introduced the Fourier series to solve the heat equation, the Fourier or polynomial approximation has served as a useful tool in solving various problems arising in industrial applications. If the function to approximate with t...
Coulomb Gases are point processes consisting of particles whose pair interaction is governed by the Coulomb potential. There is also an external potential which confines the particles to a region. Wigner introduced this toy model for the Gi...
Symplectic geometry has one of its origins in Hamiltonian dynamics. In the late 60s Arnold made a fundamental conjecture about the minimal number of periodic orbits of Hamiltonian vector fields. This is a far-reaching generalization of Poinc...
In this talk, I will talk about the definition Q-curvature and some of its properties. Then I will talk about the problem of prescribing Q-curvature, especially I will explain the ideas of studying the problem using flow approach.
Quantitative residual non-vanishing of special values of various L-functions
Non-vanishing modulo a prime of special values of various $L$-functions are of great importance in studying structures of relevant arithmetic objects such as class groups of number fields and Selmer groups of elliptic curves. While there hav...
Quantum Dynamics in the Mean-Field and Semiclassical Regime
The talk will review a new approach to the limits of the quantum N-body dynamics leading to the Hartree equation (in the large N limit) and to the Liouville equation (in the small Planck constant limit). This new strategy for studying both l...
