The rigorous calculation of the ground state energy of dilute Bose gases has been a challenging problem since the 1950s. In particular, it is of interest to understand the extent to which the Bogoliubov pairing theory correctly describes the ground...

The Stefan problem, dating back to the XIX century, aims to describe the evolution of a solid-liquid interface, typically a block of ice melting in water. A celebrated work of Luis Caffarelli from the 1970's established that the ice-water interface...

We will discuss recent developments of the theory of a-contraction with shifts to study the stability of discontinuous solutions of systems of equations modeling inviscid compressible flows, like the compressible Euler equation.

For the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations, classical results state that weak solutions are unique in the so-called Ladyzhenskaya-Prodi-Serrin regime. A scaling analysis suggests that classical uniqueness results are sharp, but current...

An extension of Gromov compactness theorem ensures that any family of manifolds with convex boundaries, uniform bound on the dimension and uniform lower bound on the Ricci curvature is precompact in the Gromov-Hausdorff topology. In this talk, we...

In the theory of turbulence, a famous conjecture of Onsager asserts that the threshold Hölder regularity for the total kinetic energy conservation of (spatially periodic) Euler flows is 1/3. In particular, there are Hölder continuous Euler flows...

Motivated by some work of Thurston on defining a Teichmuller theory based on best Lipschitz maps between surfaces, we study infinity-harmonic maps from a manifold to a circle. The best Lipschitz constant is taken on on a geodesic lamination...

Given a set E of Hausdorff dimension s>d/2 in ?d , Falconer conjectured that its distance set ?(E)={|x?y|:x,y?E} should have positive Lebesgue measure. When d is even, we show that dimHE>d/2+1/4 implies |?(E)|>0. This improves upon the work of Wolff...

We will briefly review Kolmogorov’s (41) theory of homogeneous turbulence and Onsager’s (49) conjecture that in 3-dimensional turbulent flows energy dissipation might exist even in the limit of vanishing viscosity. Although over the past 60 years...

Lévy matrices are symmetric random matrices whose entries are independent alpha-stable laws. Such distributions have infinite variance, and when alpha is less than 1, infinite mean. In the latter case these matrices are conjectured to exhibit a...
