## Climate models: their functioning, projections, and uncertainties

Climate models have been the focus of much attention in the past three decades; indeed, they have been instrumental in highlighting the causes and consequences of anthropogenic climate change, and their results have largely contributed to climate policy and, in particular, the 2015 Paris Climate Accord. In this talk, we shall briefly outline the underlying ...

## Structure and dynamics of Polish groups conference

Polish topological groups comprise all locally compact second countable groups, but also most interesting topological transformation groups such as homeomorphism and diffeomorphism groups of compact manifolds, isometry groups of separable complete metric spaces, and automorphism groups of countable model theoretical structures. While all of these classes had been intensively studied separately, there has recently been ...

## Large scale geometry of Polish groups workshop

The topic of this workshop will be geometric group theory in a larger context. As is well known, there are close links between geometric group theory of finitely generated or locally compact groups and geometric non-linear functional analysis, i.e., the non-linear geometry of Banach spaces. While this has for a long time been seen as ...

## Professor Mikhail Gromov Bernoulli Lecture - What is Probability?

The success of the probability theory in mathematics and theoretical physics is due not so much to its measure theoretic foundation but because it exploits and enhances symmetries of the structures it applies to. We shall describe in this lecture two alternative approaches to the concept of probability, where the first one is motivated by ...

## Ideals and exceptional sets in Polish spaces

Exceptional sets play an important role in numerous branches of mathematics, for instance in measure theory, topology, harmonic and complex analysis, Banach space theory, algebraic geometry, combinatorics, probability and ergodic theory, set theory and descriptive set theory, just to mention a few. Exceptional sets describe notions of smallness from various points of view, some notable ...

## Descriptive set theory conference

This is the last conference of the semester and will be of a more general nature than the earlier more specialized conferences and workshops of the program. It will cover broad aspects of descriptive set theory and its connections with other areas of mathematics.
