Henri Poincaré – X1873 Paris-Saclay University in Top 8 World Innovation Hubs infographic-the-worlds-technology-hubs/ A new Grammar of Information “Mathematics is the art of giving the same name to different things” – Henri Poincaré GROUP EVERYWHERE Elie Cartan Henri Poincaré METRIC EVERYWHERE Maurice Fréchet Misha Gromov “the problems addressed by Elie Cartan are among the most important, most abstract and most general dealing with mathematics; group theory is, so to speak, the whole mathematics, stripped of its material and reduced to pure form. This extreme level of abstraction has probably made my presentation a little dry; to assess each of the results, I would have had virtually render him the material which he had been stripped; but this refund can be made in a thousand different ways; and this is the only form that can be found as well as a host of various garments, which is the common link between mathematical theories that are often surprised to find so near” H. Poincaré Elie Cartan: Group Everywhere (Henri Poincaré review of Cartan’s Works) Maurice Fréchet: Metric Everywhere • Maurice Fréchet made major contributions to the topology of point sets and introduced the entire concept of metric spaces. • His dissertation opened the entire field of functionals on metric spaces and introduced the notion of compactness. • He has extended Probability in Metric space 1948 (Annales de l’IHP) Les éléments aléatoires de nature quelconque dans un espace distancié Extension of Probability/Statistic in abstract/Metric space GSI’15 & Geometric Mechanics • The master of geometry during the last century, Elie Cartan, was the son of Joseph Cartan who was the village blacksmith. • Elie recalled that his childhood had passed under “blows of the anvil, which started every morning from dawn”. • We can imagine easily that the child, Elie Cartan, watching his father Joseph “coding curvature” on metal between the hammer and the anvil, insidiously influencing Elie’s mind with germinal intuition of fundamental geometric concepts. • The etymology of the word “Forge”, that comes from the late XIV century, “a smithy”, from Old French forge “forge, smithy” (XII century), earlier faverge, from Latin fabrica “workshop, smith’s shop”, from faber (genitive fabri) “workman in hard materials, smith”.

Talk chaired by Daniel Bennequin Keynote Speakers Prof. Marc ARNAUDON (Bordeaux University, France) Stochastic Euler-Poincaré reduction Abstact: We will prove a Euler-Poincaré reduction theorem for stochastic processes taking values in a Lie group, which is a generalization of the Lagrangian version of reduction and its associated variational principles. We will also show examples of its application to the rigid body and to the group of diffeomorphisms, which includes the Navier-Stokes equation on a bounded domain and the Camassa-Holm equation. Biography: Marc Arnaudon was born in France in 1965. He graduated from Ecole Normale Supérieure de Paris, France, in 1991. He received the PhD degree in mathematics and the Habilitation à diriger des Recherches degree from Strasbourg University, France, in January 1994 and January 1998 respectively. After postdoctoral research and teaching at Strasbourg, he began in September 1999 a full professor position in the Department of Mathematics at Poitiers University, France, where he was the head of the Probability Research Group. In January 2013 he left Poitiers and joined the Department of Mathematics of Bordeaux University, France, where he is a full professor in mathematics. Talk chaired by Frank Nielsen Keynote Speakers Prof. Tudor RATIU (EPFL, Switzerland) Symmetry methods in geometric mechanics Abstact: The goal of these lectures is to show the influence of symmetry in various aspects of theoretical mechanics. Canonical actions of Lie groups on Poisson manifolds often give rise to conservation laws, encoded in modern language by the concept of momentum maps. Reduction methods lead to a deeper understanding of the dynamics of mechanical systems. Basic results in singular Hamiltonian reduction will be presented. The Lagrangian version of reduction and its associated variational principles will also be discussed. The understanding of symmetric bifurcation phenomena in for Hamiltonian systems are based on these reduction techniques. Time permitting, discrete versions of these geometric methods will also be discussed in the context of examples from elasticity.

The corresponding metrics are quantum analogs of the Fisher metric and have been classified by D. Petz. Two distances are particularly relevant physically: the Bogoliubov-Kubo-Mori distance studied by R. Balian, Y. Alhassid and H. Reinhardt, and the Bures distance studied by A. Uhlmann and by S.L. Braunstein and C.M. Caves. The latter gives the quantum Fisher information playing an important role in quantum metrology. A way to measure the amount of quantum correlations (entanglement or quantum discord) in bipartite systems (that is, systems composed of two parties) with the help of these distances will be also discussed.

Application to Hamiltonian systems Abstact: I will present some tools in Symplectic and Poisson Geometry in view of their applications in Geometric Mechanics and Mathematical Physics. Lie group and Lie algebra actions on symplectic and Poisson manifolds, momentum maps and their equivariance properties, first integrals associated to symmetries of Hamiltonian systems will be discussed. Reduction methods taking advantage of symmetries will be discussed. Biography: Charles-Michel Marle was born in 1934; He studied at Ecole Polytechnique (1953-1955), Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Paris (1957-1958) and Ecole Nationale Supérieure du Pétrole et des Moteurs (1957-1958). He obtained a doctor's degree in Mathematics at the University of Paris in 1968. From 1959 to 1969 he worked as a research engineer at the Institut Français du Pétrole. He joined the Université de Besançon as Associate Professor in 1969, and the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, first as Associate Professor (1975) and then as full Professor (1981). His resarch works were first about fluid flows through porous media, then about Differential Geometry, Hamiltonian systems and applications in Mechanics and Mathematical Physics.
