Aim and scope

The goal of this workshop is to bring together physicists and mathematicians studying the dynamics of systems with a very large or infinite number of degrees of freedom, be it experimentally, numerically or analytically. More specifically, the following topics will be addressed:

  • Ensembles of relativistic electrons in interaction in accelerators and Free-Electron Lasers

  • Nonlinear waves in optics

  • Stationary states of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation: soliton turbulence, integrable turbulence

  • Kinetic equations: derivations and range of validity; stationary solutions and their stability.


10 speakers are confirmed:

  • Dmitry Agafontsev, (Moscow, Russia): Integrable turbulence and formation of rogue waves: new results;
  • Enrico Allaria, (Trieste, Italy): Electron beam qualities required for FELs and seeded FEL;
  • Nathalie Ayi, (Paris, France): High-field limit of a stochastic BGK model;
  • Julien Barré, (Orléans, France): Bifurcations de l'équation de Vlasov;
  • Clément Evain (Lille, France): Microbunching Instability in Storage Rings;
  • Thierry Goudon (Nice, France): Modeling of Magneto-Optical Traps; from Vlasov-Poisson equations to the Incompressible Euler system, the case with finite mass;
  • Maxime Hauray, (Marseille, France): Propagation of chaos for the 3D homogenous Landau equation with moderalty soft potential;
  • Maxime Herda, (Paris, France): Massless electron limit of the magnetized Vlasov-Poisson-Fokker-Planck equation;
  • Jani Lukkarinen, Helsinki (Finland): Thermalization and prethermalization in anharmonic oscillator chains;
  • Clément Mouhot, (Cambridge, United Kingdom)
