An elementary higher topos is a higher category that is defined using only elementary conditions, yet behaves similar to the category of spaces. The goal of this talk is to illustrate this connection by proving classical results from algebraic topology in this abstract setting. Concretely, we will use the fact that it satisfies descent, which ... Read more about "An Axiomatic Approach to Algebraic Topology"

An incentive to use coarse-grained models is to use them for inference and control instead of the original (often intractable) model. Since coarse-grained models are always “wrong”, questions such as inference under model misspecification or goal-oriented uncertainty quantification (e.g. for control) come into play. This workshop will address such topics, with a special focus on ...

The workshop will address computational and theoretical issues in stochastic modeling and model reduction in molecular and complex systems. In particular, the program will include topics ranging from quantum to mesoscale modelling, with focus on uncertainty quantification, machine learning and approximate inference method, methods using both quantum and classical models, semiclassical limits and their computational ...

The Young Topologists Meeting is an annual event for graduate students, recent PhDs and other junior researchers in topology (both pure and applied). Previous editions were organised by the University of Copenhagen, jointly by Stockholm University and the Royal Institute of Technology, and the EPFL. The Young Topologists Meeting 2019 will take place July 22-26 ... Read more about "Young Topologists Meeting"

This workshop brings together specialists working on various crossroads through conservative dynamics. It will highlight cutting edge research involving methods from symplectic topology, as well as interactions with other fields including smooth ergodic theory and PDEs.

The phenomenon of KPZ (Kardar-Parisi-Zhang) universality was a very active research area in the last 10 years. One can say that it describes universal statistical properties of long directed optimal paths (geodesics) in 2D disordered environment. Apart from many physical applications, it is remarkable for extremely strong universality properties in very general setting, as well ...

The summer school will provide courses from experts in the areas of the scope of the program ''Dynamics with Structures''. It is intended to provide surveys of modern directions in the theory of dynamical systems on the level of graduate students and junior researchers. The goal is to propagate modern directions of research to younger ... Read more about "Summer School - Dynamical Systems"

This workshop brings together dynamicists who use techniques from, and are motivated by, combinatorics, geometry, and number theory. The topics cover a broad swath of dynamics, including ergodic theory, homogeneous dynamics, symbolic dynamics, Teichmuller theory, and billiards, and the aim of the workshop is to highlight the common features across these subjects. Part of the ... Read more about "Dynamics, Geometry and Combinatorics"

Nous présenterons dans notre leçon un bref historique des grands problèmes du calcul des variations comme l'inégalité isopérimétrique, le problème de la brachistochrone, le principe de Dirichlet ou le problème des surfaces minimales. Puis nous parlerons très brièvement de quelques problèmes ouverts. Programme: 18:00 Introduction par le professeur M. Picasso, MATH 18:10 Leçon d'honneur du ...
