The development of adequate modeling tools for the dynamical evolution of market prices and interest rates is of strategic importance for the financial industry and is at the core of the interests of much academic research. These models are, for example, the first building blocks in the construction of pricing and hedging tools and of ... Read more about "School and Workshop on Dynamical Models in Finance"

The I-mode is an improved confinement regime of tokamak plasmas where an edge transport barrier is observed in the energy channel but not in the particle transport [1]. This is in contrast to H-mode confinement, which is characterized by transport barriers in both energy and particles. Consequently, in I-mode the impurity confinement time is low, ...

Physics is an experimental science where theories should be confronted with experimental results. This validation process requires the development of plasma diagnostics to show that a new model faithfully represent physics reality, including quantitative assessments of discrepancies between theoretical and experimental results. From this perspective the direct experimental characterization of zonal flows, quantifying their role ...

Résumé : Les conjectures de Manin et Peyre décrivent la répartition des points rationnels de hauteur bornée sur une variété de Fano en terme d'invariants géométriques de cette variété. S'inspirant de travaux récents de La Bretèche et de Blomer, Brüdern et Salberger, on s'intéressera au cours de cet exposé aux conjectures de Manin et de ...

Owing to their high surface areas, tunable pore dimensions, and adjustable surface functionality, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) can offer advantages for a variety of gas storage and gas separation applications. In an effort to help curb greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, we are developing new MOFs for use as solid adsorbents in post- and pre-combustion ...

We show the existence of independent random matching of a large population in a continuous-time dynamical system, where the matching intensities could be general non-negative jointly continuous functions on the space of type distributions and the time line. In particular, we construct a continuum of independent continuous-time Markov processes that is derived from random mutation, ... Read more about "Bernoulli Lecture - Continuous-time random matching"

Abstract: Families of automorphic forms have seen a lot of interest over recent years. An approach to study them is through their Hecke eigenvalues. In this talk I want to explain current and recent work on the distribution of those eigenvalues in families of spherical automorphic forms. (Joint work with T. Finis and N. Templier.)

The first principles computation of materials properties was once restricted to the investigation of a few structures at a time. The dramatic growth in the availability of computational resources now allows many thousands of computations to be performed independently and at the same time. One use of this power is to screen for novel or ... Read more about "Structure prediction and computational materials discovery"

Given a smooth family of quasiprojective complex varieties $f:X \rightarrow S$, one would like to understand the locus of points $s \in S$ whose fiber $X_s$ admits more Hodge classes than the very general fiber. In this talk I will describe a general conjecture (and some results) concerning this locus in terms of exceptional intersections. ...

(Joint work with Daniel Loughran.) Given a family of varieties over Q, we consider the problem of counting the number of varieties in this family which have a rational point. For suitable families over P^1, we will show how to obtain correct order lower bounds for this counting problem and thereby answer a question of ...

This talk will describe ongoing joint work, and some progress, with M. Dimitrov on the expected paucity of rational points on Picard modular surfaces of large level. There is an analytic component which involves non-vanishing of L-values and a geometric component involving intersections.
