Title: Existence and regularity for a system of porous medium equations with small cross-diffusion and nonlocal drifts
 +
 
 +
Abstract: We prove existence and Sobolev regularity of solutions of a nonlinear system of degenerate parabolic PDEs with self- and cross-diffusion, transport/confinement and nonlocal interaction terms. The macroscopic system of PDEs is formally derived from a large particle system and models the evolution of an arbitrary number of (e.g. biological) species with quadratic porous medium interactions in a bounded domain of arbitrary dimension. The cross-interactions are scaled by a coefficient on which a necessary smallness condition is imposed. The strategy of our proof relies on a fixed point argument, followed by a vanishing viscosity scheme. This is joint work with Maria Bruna (Cambridge), Luca Alasio (Paris VI), and Simone Fagioli (Università degli Studi dell'Aquila).

Title: Volume-preserving crystalline and anisotropic mean curvature flow
 +
 
 +
Abstract: We consider the global existence of volume-preserving crystalline mean curvature flow in a non-convex setting. We show that a natural geometric property, associated with reflection symmetries of the Wulff shape, is preserved with the flow. Using this geometric property, we address the global existence and regularity of the flow for smooth anisotropies. For the non-smooth case, we establish global existence results for the types of anisotropies known to be globally well-posed. This is joint work with Inwon Kim (UCLA) and Norbert Požár (Kanazawa University).

Title: Variational formulation, well-posedness, and iterative methods for moist potential vorticity inversion: a nonlinear PDE from atmospheric dynamics with free boundaries
 +
 
 +
Abstract: To describe the atmosphere on a synoptic scale (the scale at which high- and low-pressure systems are apparent on a weather map, for example) one may use the quasi-geostrophic equations, which are derived as a limit of the classical Boussinesq system under the assumptions of fast rotation and strong stratification. When incorporating the dynamics of water content in the atmosphere, a.k.a. moisture, one may then study the moist Boussinesq equations and its limit, the precipitating quasi-geostrophic equations.
 +
 
 +
These models are important for atmospheric scientists in light of the role that the water cycle plays in atmospheric dynamics, notably through energy budgeting (such as for example when atmospheric circulations are driven by laten heat release in storms). Mathematically, these models present interesting challenges due to the presence of boundaries, whose locations are a priori unknown, between phases saturated and unsaturated in water (schematically: boundaries between clouds and their surroundings).
 +
 
 +
In particular, while the (dry) quasi-geostrophic equations rely on the inversion of a Laplacian, this becomes a much trickier adversary in the presence of free boundaries. In this talk we will discuss how this nonlinear equation underpinning the precipitating quasi-geostrophic equations can be characterized using a variational formulation and we will describe the many benefits one may derive from this formulation.

Title: Well-posedness of logarithmic spiral vortex sheets.
 +
 
 +
Abstract: We will discuss a family of 2D logarithmic spiral vortex sheets which include the celebrated spirals introduced by Prandtl (Vorträge aus dem Gebiete der Hydro- und Aerodynamik, 1922) and by Alexander (Phys. Fluids, 1971). We will discuss a recent result regarding a complete characterization of such spirals in terms of weak solutions of the 2D incompressible Euler equations. Namely, we will explain that a spiral gives rise to such solution if and only if two conditions hold across every spiral: a velocity matching condition and a pressure matching condition. Furthermore we show that these two conditions are equivalent to the imaginary part and the real part, respectively, of a single complex constraint on the coefficients of the spirals. This in particular provides a rigorous mathematical framework for logarithmic spirals, an issue that has remained open since their introduction by Prandtl in 1922, despite significant progress of the theory of vortex sheets and Birkhoff-Rott equations. We will also show well-posedness of the symmetric Alexander spiral with two branches, despite recent evidence for the contrary. Our main tools are new explicit formulas for the velocity field and for the pressure function, as well as a notion of a winding number of a spiral, which gives a robust way of localizing the spirals' arms with respect to a given point in the plane. This is joint work with P. Kokocki and T. Cieślak.

Title: Mean Curvature Flow Singularities with Bounded Mean Curvature
 +
 
 +
Abstract: Hypersurfaces moving by mean curvature flow often become singular in finite time. At this time, the flow may no longer be continued smoothly. The extension problem asks, "If M(t) is a solution to mean curvature flow defined up to time T, what conditions ensure that we may smoothly extend this solution to slightly later times?" For example, a result of Huisken says that if the 2nd fundamental forms of the evolving hypersurfaces remain uniformly bounded, then the mean curvature flow can be smoothly extended. One might then ask if a uniform bound on the mean curvature suffices to extend the flow. We'll discuss work that shows the answer is "no" in general, that is, there exist mean curvature flow solutions that become singular in finite time but have uniformly bounded mean curvature.

Title: The Benjamin-Ono approximation for 2D gravity water waves with constant vorticity
 +
 
 +
Abstract:  This article is concerned with infinite depth gravity water waves with constant vorticity in two space dimensions. We consider this system expressed in position-velocity potential holomorphic coordinates. We show that, for low-frequency solutions, the Benjamin-Ono equation gives a good and stable approximation to the system on the natural cubic time scale. The proof relies on refined cubic energy estimates and perturbative analysis.

Title: Well-posedness for the dispersion-generalized Benjamin-Ono equation
 +
 
 +
Abstract: In this talk we will consider the Cauchy problem for both low and high dispersive generalizations of the Benjamin-Ono equation. To address the nonlinear interactions, we use a pseudodifferential generalization of the gauge transform introduced by Tao for the original Benjamin-Ono equation. Further, we combine this with a paradifferential normal form. This approach allows for a much simpler functional setting, and improves the known low regularity well-posedness threshold across the range of the dispersive generalization. This is joint work with Grace Liu.

Title: Global wellposedness for the energy-critical Zakharov system below the ground state
 +
 
 +
Abstract: The Zakharov system is a quadratically coupled system of a Schroedinger and a wave equation, which is related to the focussing cubic Schroedinger equation. We consider the associated Cauchy problem in the energy-critical dimension d=4 and prove that global well-posedness holds in the full (non-radial) energy space for any initial data with energy and wave mass below the ground state threshold. The result is based on a uniform Strichartz estimate for the Schr\"odinger equation with potentials solving the wave equation. A key ingredient in the non-radial setting is a bilinear Fourier extension estimate.

Title: Quantitative homogenization of Hamilton-Jacobi equations
 +
 
 +
Abstract: We are interested in the rate at which solutions to a Hamilton-Jacobi equation converge, in the large-scale limit, to the solution of the effective problem. We'll describe prior work in various settings where homogenization occurs (periodic or random in space, coercive or only "coercive on average" in momentum as in the G equation). We'll also use a theorem of Alexander, originally proved in the context of first-passage percolation, to improve the rate of convergence when an optimal control formulation is available (for example, in the G equation or when the Hamiltonian is convex and coercive).

The Huisken-Hamilton-Gage theorem on compact convex solutions to MCF shows that in forward time all solutions do the same thing, namely, they shrink to a point and become round as they do so. Even though MCF is ill-posed in backward time there do exist solutions that are defined for all t<0 , and one can try to classify all such &ldquo;Ancient Solutions.&rdquo;  In doing so one finds that there is interesting dynamics associated to ancient solutions.  I will discuss what is currently known about these solutions.  Some of the talk is based on joint work with Sesum and Daskalopoulos.

Global $L^p$ well posed-ness of the Boltzmann equation with an angle-potential concentrated collision kernel.
 
  
We solve the Cauchy problem associated to an epsilon-parameter family of homogeneous Boltzmann equations for very soft and Coulomb potentials. Proposed in 2013 by Bobylev and Potapenko, the collision kernel that we use is a Dirac mass concentrated at very small angles and relative speeds. The main advantage of such a kernel is that it does not separate its variables (relative speed $u$ and scattering angle $\theta$) and can be viewed as a pseudo-Maxwell molecule collision kernel, which allows for the splitting of the Boltzmann collision operator into its gain and loss terms. Global estimates on the gain term gives us an existence theory for $L^1_k \capL^p$ with any $k\geq 2$ and $p\geq 1.$ Furthermore the bounds we obtain are independent of the epsilon parameter, which allows for analysis of the solutions in the grazing collisions limit, i.e., when epsilon approaches zero and the Boltzmann equation becomes the Landau equation.

Mean-Field Limits for Ginzburg-Landau vortices
 
  
Ginzburg-Landau type equations are models for superconductivity, superfluidity, Bose-Einstein condensation. A crucial feature is the presence of quantized vortices, which are topological zeroes of the complex-valued solutions. This talk will review some results on the derivation of effective models to describe the statics and dynamics of these vortices, with particular attention to the situation where the number of vortices blows up with the parameters of the problem. In particular we will present new results on the derivation of mean field limits for the dynamics of many vortices starting from the parabolic Ginzburg-Landau equation or the Gross-Pitaevskii (=Schrodinger Ginzburg-Landau) equation.

Supersonic Flow onto Solid Wedges, Multidimensional Shock Waves and Free Boundary Problems
 
  
When an upstream steady uniform supersonic flow, governed by the Euler equations,
+
1. James Stone - Astrophysical fluid dynamics https://youtu.be/SlPSa37QMeI
impinges onto a symmetric straight-sided wedge, there are two possible steady oblique shock
 
configurations if the wedge angle is less than the detachment angle -- the steady weak shock
 
with supersonic or subsonic downstream flow (determined by the wedge angle that is less or larger
 
than the sonic angle) and the steady strong shock with subsonic downstream flow, both of which
 
satisfy the entropy conditions.
 
The fundamental issue -- whether one or both of the steady weak and strong shocks are physically
 
admissible solutions -- has been vigorously debated over the past eight decades.
 
In this talk, we discuss some of the most recent developments on the stability analysis
 
of the steady shock solutions in both the steady and dynamic regimes.
 
The corresponding stability problems can be formulated as free boundary problems
 
for nonlinear partial differential equations of mixed elliptic-hyperbolic type, whose
 
solutions are fundamental for multidimensional hyperbolic conservation laws.
 
Some further developments, open problems, and mathematical challenges in this direction
 
are also addressed.

Title: Mean field limit for stochastic particle systems with singular forces
 
  
Abstract: We consider large systems of particles interacting through rough interaction kernels. We are able to control the relative entropy between the N-particles distribution
 
and the expected limit which solves the corresponding McKean-Vlasov PDE. This implies the Mean Field limit to the McKean-Vlasov system together with Propagation of Chaos
 
through the strong convergence of all the marginals. The method works at the level of the Liouville equation and relies on precise combinatorics results.

We consider a model for three-dimensional fluid flow on the torus that also keeps track of the local temperature. The momentum equation is the same as for Navier-Stokes, however the kinematic viscosity grows as a function of the local temperature. The temperature is, in turn, fed by the local dissipation of kinetic energy. Intuitively, this leads to a mechanism whereby turbulent regions increase their local viscosity and

dissipate faster. We prove a strong a priori bound (that would fall within the Ladyzhenskaya-Prodi-Serrin criterion for ordinary Navier-Stokes) on the thermally weighted enstrophy for classical solutions to the coupled system.

Analysis of Velázquez's solution to the mean curvature flow with a type II singularity
 
  
Velázquez discovered a solution to the mean curvature flow which develops a type II singularity at the origin. He also showed that under a proper time-dependent rescaling of the solution, the rescaled flow converges in the C^0 sense to a minimal hypersurface which is tangent to Simons' cone at infinity. In this talk, we will present that the rescaled flow actually converges locally smoothly to the minimal hypersurface, which appears to be the singularity model of the type II singularity. In addition, we will show that the mean curvature of the solution blows up near the origin at a rate which is smaller than that of the second fundamental form. This is a joint work with N. Sesum.

Title: 
Generalized Kahler Ricci flow and a generalized Calabi conjecture
 
  
Generalized Kahler geometry is a natural extension of Kahler geometry with roots in mathematical physics, and is a particularly rich instance of Hitchin's program of `generalized geometries.'  In this talk I will discuss an extension of Kahler-Ricci flow to this setting.  I will formulate a natural Calabi-Yau type conjecture based on Hitchin/Gualtieri's definition of generalized Calabi-Yau equations, then introduce the flow as a tool for resolving this.  The main result is a global existence and convergence result for the flow which yields a partial resolution of this conjecture, and which classifies generalized Kahler structures on hyperKahler backgrounds.

Title: Existence and regularity for a system of porous medium equations with small cross-diffusion and nonlocal drifts

Abstract: We prove existence and Sobolev regularity of solutions of a nonlinear system of degenerate parabolic PDEs with self- and cross-diffusion, transport/confinement and nonlocal interaction terms. The macroscopic system of PDEs is formally derived from a large particle system and models the evolution of an arbitrary number of (e.g. biological) species with quadratic porous medium interactions in a bounded domain of arbitrary dimension. The cross-interactions are scaled by a coefficient on which a necessary smallness condition is imposed. The strategy of our proof relies on a fixed point argument, followed by a vanishing viscosity scheme. This is joint work with Maria Bruna (Cambridge), Luca Alasio (Paris VI), and Simone Fagioli (Università degli Studi dell'Aquila).

Title: Volume-preserving crystalline and anisotropic mean curvature flow

Abstract: We consider the global existence of volume-preserving crystalline mean curvature flow in a non-convex setting. We show that a natural geometric property, associated with reflection symmetries of the Wulff shape, is preserved with the flow. Using this geometric property, we address the global existence and regularity of the flow for smooth anisotropies. For the non-smooth case, we establish global existence results for the types of anisotropies known to be globally well-posed. This is joint work with Inwon Kim (UCLA) and Norbert Požár (Kanazawa University).

Title: Variational formulation, well-posedness, and iterative methods for moist potential vorticity inversion: a nonlinear PDE from atmospheric dynamics with free boundaries

Abstract: To describe the atmosphere on a synoptic scale (the scale at which high- and low-pressure systems are apparent on a weather map, for example) one may use the quasi-geostrophic equations, which are derived as a limit of the classical Boussinesq system under the assumptions of fast rotation and strong stratification. When incorporating the dynamics of water content in the atmosphere, a.k.a. moisture, one may then study the moist Boussinesq equations and its limit, the precipitating quasi-geostrophic equations.

These models are important for atmospheric scientists in light of the role that the water cycle plays in atmospheric dynamics, notably through energy budgeting (such as for example when atmospheric circulations are driven by laten heat release in storms). Mathematically, these models present interesting challenges due to the presence of boundaries, whose locations are a priori unknown, between phases saturated and unsaturated in water (schematically: boundaries between clouds and their surroundings).

In particular, while the (dry) quasi-geostrophic equations rely on the inversion of a Laplacian, this becomes a much trickier adversary in the presence of free boundaries. In this talk we will discuss how this nonlinear equation underpinning the precipitating quasi-geostrophic equations can be characterized using a variational formulation and we will describe the many benefits one may derive from this formulation.

Title: Well-posedness of logarithmic spiral vortex sheets.

Abstract: We will discuss a family of 2D logarithmic spiral vortex sheets which include the celebrated spirals introduced by Prandtl (Vorträge aus dem Gebiete der Hydro- und Aerodynamik, 1922) and by Alexander (Phys. Fluids, 1971). We will discuss a recent result regarding a complete characterization of such spirals in terms of weak solutions of the 2D incompressible Euler equations. Namely, we will explain that a spiral gives rise to such solution if and only if two conditions hold across every spiral: a velocity matching condition and a pressure matching condition. Furthermore we show that these two conditions are equivalent to the imaginary part and the real part, respectively, of a single complex constraint on the coefficients of the spirals. This in particular provides a rigorous mathematical framework for logarithmic spirals, an issue that has remained open since their introduction by Prandtl in 1922, despite significant progress of the theory of vortex sheets and Birkhoff-Rott equations. We will also show well-posedness of the symmetric Alexander spiral with two branches, despite recent evidence for the contrary. Our main tools are new explicit formulas for the velocity field and for the pressure function, as well as a notion of a winding number of a spiral, which gives a robust way of localizing the spirals' arms with respect to a given point in the plane. This is joint work with P. Kokocki and T. Cieślak.

Title: Mean Curvature Flow Singularities with Bounded Mean Curvature

Abstract: Hypersurfaces moving by mean curvature flow often become singular in finite time. At this time, the flow may no longer be continued smoothly. The extension problem asks, "If M(t) is a solution to mean curvature flow defined up to time T, what conditions ensure that we may smoothly extend this solution to slightly later times?" For example, a result of Huisken says that if the 2nd fundamental forms of the evolving hypersurfaces remain uniformly bounded, then the mean curvature flow can be smoothly extended. One might then ask if a uniform bound on the mean curvature suffices to extend the flow. We'll discuss work that shows the answer is "no" in general, that is, there exist mean curvature flow solutions that become singular in finite time but have uniformly bounded mean curvature.

Title: The Benjamin-Ono approximation for 2D gravity water waves with constant vorticity

Abstract: This article is concerned with infinite depth gravity water waves with constant vorticity in two space dimensions. We consider this system expressed in position-velocity potential holomorphic coordinates. We show that, for low-frequency solutions, the Benjamin-Ono equation gives a good and stable approximation to the system on the natural cubic time scale. The proof relies on refined cubic energy estimates and perturbative analysis.

Title: Well-posedness for the dispersion-generalized Benjamin-Ono equation

Abstract: In this talk we will consider the Cauchy problem for both low and high dispersive generalizations of the Benjamin-Ono equation. To address the nonlinear interactions, we use a pseudodifferential generalization of the gauge transform introduced by Tao for the original Benjamin-Ono equation. Further, we combine this with a paradifferential normal form. This approach allows for a much simpler functional setting, and improves the known low regularity well-posedness threshold across the range of the dispersive generalization. This is joint work with Grace Liu.

Title: Global wellposedness for the energy-critical Zakharov system below the ground state

Abstract: The Zakharov system is a quadratically coupled system of a Schroedinger and a wave equation, which is related to the focussing cubic Schroedinger equation. We consider the associated Cauchy problem in the energy-critical dimension d=4 and prove that global well-posedness holds in the full (non-radial) energy space for any initial data with energy and wave mass below the ground state threshold. The result is based on a uniform Strichartz estimate for the Schr\"odinger equation with potentials solving the wave equation. A key ingredient in the non-radial setting is a bilinear Fourier extension estimate.

Title: Quantitative homogenization of Hamilton-Jacobi equations

Abstract: We are interested in the rate at which solutions to a Hamilton-Jacobi equation converge, in the large-scale limit, to the solution of the effective problem. We'll describe prior work in various settings where homogenization occurs (periodic or random in space, coercive or only "coercive on average" in momentum as in the G equation). We'll also use a theorem of Alexander, originally proved in the context of first-passage percolation, to improve the rate of convergence when an optimal control formulation is available (for example, in the G equation or when the Hamiltonian is convex and coercive).
