*Title: *
Dispersive equations and their role beyond PDE

Thursday, January 26, 2012
220 Guggenheim, 4:00 pm
(Reception to follow on 4th floor of Guggenheim)

*Arguably the star in the family of dispersive equations is the Schr
odinger equation. Among many mathematicians and
physicists it is regarded as fundamental, in particular to understand
complex phenomena in quantum mechanics.
But not many people may know that this equation, when defined in a periodic
setting for example, has a very reach and more
abstract structure that touches several fields of mathematics, among which
analytic number theory, symplectic geometry,
dynamical systems and probability.
In this talk I will illustrate in the simplest possible way how all these
different aspects of a unique equation have a
life of their own while interacting with each other to assemble a beautiful
and subtle picture.
