IMJ-PRG Summer School 2023

“Microlocal and Probabilistic methods in geometry and dynamics”

Official website :

July 3-7, 2023

Microlocal analysis and probabilistic methods have encountered a large success in the past decade, both in hyperbolic dynamics and in geometry. These developments led to a number of spectacular results and, on one hand, this summer school aims to celebrate the success of such methods by bringing together the leading specialists as well as the young researchers starting their career in these fields. On the other hand, its goal is to serve as a fertile environment and to provide young participants with the state-of-the-art analytic and probabilistic techniques used in geometry and dynamics.

This summer school will consist of four mini-courses (of four hours each). Topics will include:

  • Geometric Inverse Problems (mini-course by Colin Guillarmou, Université Paris-Saclay)
  • Pollicott-Ruelle resonances in hyperbolic dynamics (mini-course by Malo Jézéquel, MIT)
  • Geometry and spectrum of random hyperbolic surfaces (mini-course by Laura Monk, University of Bristol)
  • Introduction to microlocal analysis (mini-course by Jared Wunsch, Northwestern University).

They will be complemented by research talks of one hour each by :

  • Viviane Baladi (Sorbonne Université)
  • Yannick Bonthonneau (Université Paris 13)
  • Viet Dang (Sorbonne Université)
  • Ursula Hamenstädt (Universität Bonn)
  • Bram Petri (Sorbonne Université)
  • Gabriel Rivière (Université de Nantes)
  • Gunther Uhlmann (University of Washington)
