  • School - Flows and Limits in Kähler Geometry
    Apr 18, 2017 to Apr 22, 2017

    Nantes, from April 18th to April 22nd

    Organization board: Sébastien Boucksom, Yann Rollin, Carl Tipler

    Scientific board: Claudio Arezzo, Olivier Biquard, Paul Gauduchon, Michael Singer

    Kähler geometry is a very active research field, at the crossroads between algebraic and Riemannian geometry. Important breakthrough, that lead to solve the Yau-Tian-Donaldson conjecture in the Fano case, have been achieved recently. A spring school involving mini-lectures and talks around this thread of new ideas in Kähler geometry is organized at Nantes University. The goal of the school is to develop certain technical skills, useful to address a variety of important questions in algebraic geometry and global analysis on manifolds, aimed for PhD students and young researchers. Geometric flows, like the Kähler-Ricci flow for instance, and the associated quantification by the Donaldson dynamical system, will be among the essential tools dealt with during the school.

  • Conference - Infinite measure Dynamics
    Jun 6, 2017 to Jun 9, 2017

    Brest, from June 6th to June 9th

    Organization board: Yves Coudène, François Maucourant, Françoise Pène, Barbara Schapira, Samuel Tapie

    Scientific board: Jon Aaronson, Jean-Pierre Conze, Gilles Courtois, Domokos Szasz

    This conference will focus on dynamical systems which naturally preserve a measure with infinite mass. These systems appear in a geometric or probabilistic context, or may come from natural sciences. When the invariant measure has infinite mass, recurrence is no longer automatic, usual mixing properties disappear and new asymptotical properties (such as rationnal ergodicity) may occur. Such systems may develop various and subtil behaviours, which could not exists in finite measure dynamics.

    This conference will gather international experts on this topic, and will allow young researcher to have an easy access to the large recent developpment on such questions.

  • Conference - Families of algebraic dynamical systems
    Jun 12, 2017 to Jun 16, 2017

    Rennes, from June 12th to June 16th

    Organization board: Serge Cantat, Christophe Dupont

    Scientific board: Matthew Baker, Eric Bedford, Serge Cantat, Christophe Dupont, Mattias Jonsson

  • Conference - Random walks on algebraic structures-On honour of Yves Guivarc'h
    Jun 19, 2017 to Jun 23, 2017

    Rennes, from June 19th to June 23rd

    Organization board: Bachir Bekka, Nizar Demni

    Scientific board: Bachir Bekka, Emmanuel Breuillard, Nizar Demni, Alex Lubotzky

    The conference deals with themes around random walks on algebraic structures. Dynamical sytems on groups, homogeneous spaces, and related structures (graphs, quantum groups , groupoids,...) are rich objects, involving various fields of mathematics (probability, group theory, topology, number theory, operator algebras, Banach space geometry, etc). They are also useful as modelling tools for other sciences (physics, computer science, economics, etc); for instance, expander graphs, which are of interest in theoretical computer science, are graphs for which the associated random walk has special spectral properties and their explicit construction involves sophisticated tools such as Kazhdan's property (T) or Selberg's inequality. The conference aims to give a flavor of the various aspects of the subject by bringing together some experts with major contributions to the field. This conference will also be the opportunity to celebrate the 80th birthday of Yves Guivarc'h, who played a major part in the development of probability on algebraic and geometric structures, a subject with an ever growing interest for the last 30 years.

  • Conference - Dynamics on representation varieties
    Jun 26, 2017 to Jun 30, 2017

    Rennes, from June 26th to June 30th

    Organization board: Ian Biringer, Ludovic Marquis, Juan Souto

    Scientific board: Uri Bader, Jeffrey F. Brock, Jean-Marc Schlenker

    Numerous areas of mathematics are touched by what could be called Dynamics on representation varieties. For instance one could mention ergodic theory, Riemannian geometry, low-dimensional topology, Teichmüller theory, and so on... The aim of this workshop is to bring together graduate students, recent graduates and experts in these different areas, giving everybody ample time for discussions and collaborations. Next to a number of research talks, three mini-courses by Tsachik Gelander, Francois Labourie and Julien Marché will take place.







    We the organizers of this conference affirm that scientific events must be open to everyone, regardless of race, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, pregnancy, immigration status, or any other aspect of identity. We believe that such events must be supportive, inclusive, and safe environments for all participants. We believe that all participants are to be treated with dignity and respect. Discrimination and harassment cannot be tolerated. We are committed to ensuring that the Conference Dynamics on representation varieties follows these principles. For more information on the Statement of Inclusiveness, see this dedicated web page.

Thematic semester 2015 - PDE and Large Time Asymptotics

Partial differential equations arise in a wide range of problems that model physical phenomena. The thematic semester organized by the Centre Henri Lebesgue will focus on recent advances in various areas of both fundamental and applied research in this field: quantum mechanics and mathematical physics, fluid dynamics equations, kinetic theory. Specific attention will be paid to the mathematical techniques that allow for a decsription of the large time behavior of solutions.

Program

Master Program

The universities of Nantes and Rennes propose a specific Master program strengthened in analysis of partial differential equations and numerical analysis, related to the topics of the thematic semester. More information can be found here.
