Title:Mean-Field limits for systems with singular interactions


Lecture 1, Lecture 2, Lecture 3 , Lecture 4,Lecture 5 , Lecture 6 , Lecture 7, Lecture 8

Abstract:This course will be concerned with recent developments in the derivation of mean-field evolution PDEs from discrete systems of particles with pair interaction potentials, with or without noise terms. Motivations are numerous and come from physics, biology and social sciences, convergence of particle methods and stochastic gradient descent, neural networks, etc. We will discuss the relative entropy based methods and the modulated energy approach for singular interactions.

Brief biography: Professor Sylvia Serfaty is the Silver Professor of Mathematics at the Courant Institute, New York University. She earned her PhD from Université Paris-Sud. Her previous positions include appointments at Université Pierre et Marie Curie and the École Normale Supérieure de Cachan. A large part of her work has focused on the Ginzburg-Landau model of superconductivity and on understanding why and when vortices form triangular lattices. She has more recently turned her attention to questions of statistical mechanics of systems with Coulomb-type repulsion, also arising in approximation theory and random matrices, and which turn out to be generalizations of the questions addressed for the behavior vortices in superconductors. She was a plenary speaker at the ICM Rio in 2018, and is the recipient of the EMS and Henri Poincaré prizes and of the Mergier-Bourdeix prize of the French Academy of Sciences.
