Emerging Behavior in Collective Dynamics (E. Tadmor)

Eitan Tadmor (Universty of Maryland), laureate of the FSMP Chair of excellence in 2023, is giving a doctoral course entitled Emerging Behavior in Collective Dynamics on Wednesdays from 14:00 to 17:00 , from Frebruary 7th to March 27th 2024 at Institut Henri Poincaré (11 rue Pierre et Marie Curie), in room 314 (salle Pierre Grisvard), except March 27th when it will take place in room 201 (salle Maryam Mirzakhani).


Nature and human societies offer many examples of self-organized behavior: ants form colonies, birds flock, mobile networks synchronize, and consensus may emerge from interaction of diverse human opinions. These are simple examples of collective dynamic in which small scale interactions of so-called active particles, lead to emergence of high-order, larger-scale patterns. These lectures will survey recent mathematical developments in collective dynamics, starting with the influential works of Reynolds, Krause, Vicsek and Cucker & Smale. The dynamics is governed by different protocols of pairwise interactions. Collisions are avoided. There is a hierarchy of three levels of descriptions: agent-based description of swarm dynamics on a graph, a Vlasov-type kinetic description, and large-crowd hydrodynamic description. A main question of interest is how different classes of interaction kernels affect the large-time, large-crowd, non-equilibrium dynamics, leading to the emergence of different large-scale patterns.

Systems with Coulomb-type interactions: mean-field dynamics and statistical mechanics

Le cours de Sylvia Serfaty

Sylvia Serfaty (Courant Institute), lauréate d'une Chaire d'excellence FSMP-PSL en 2022, donne dans le cadre de sa chaire un cours intitulé Systems with Coulomb-type interactions: mean-field dynamics and statistical mechanics. Le cours se déroulera en 8 séances les lundis de 13h30 à 16h à partir du 13 février 2023. Il se tiendra au DMA de l'Ecole Normale Supérieure (45 rue d'Ulm, 75005, Paris).

Descriptif du cours

The goal of this course, targeted at the doctoral level, is to present recent progress in the analysis of statistical mechanics and dynamics of classical Coulomb systems. In order to arrive at those recent developments we will start by reviewing some classical notions and results, which can be instructive for students and young researchers. We will focus on the Coulomb case for simplicity, and explain how some of the results extend to more general singular (inverse power-like) interactions.

The course will be in two parts: one part on the dynamics and one on the statistical mechanics, and we will emphasize several notions that are common to both parts.

We hope the course will be of interest to both analysts and probabilists, as well as researchers interested in mathematical physics in general and in applied mathematics.
