Quantum optical systems provides one of the best physical settings to engineer quantum many-body systems of atoms and photons, which can be controlled and measured on the level of single quanta. In this course we will provide an introduction to quantum optics from the perspective of control and measurement, and in light of possible applications including quantum computing and quantum communication.
The first part of the course will introduce the basic quantum optical systems and concepts as ’closed’ (i.e. isolated) quantum systems. We start with laser driven two-level atoms, the Jaynes-Cummings model of Cavity Quantum Electro-dynamics, and illustrate with the example of trapped ions control of the quantum motion of atoms via laser light. This will lead us to the model system of an ion trap quantum computer where we employ control ideas to design quantum gates.
In the second part of the course we will consider open quantum optical systems. Here the system of interest is coupled to a bosonic bath or environment (e.g. vacuum modes of the radiation field), providing damping and decoherence. We will develop the theory for the example of a radiatively damped two-level atom, and derive the corresponding master equation, and discuss its solution and physical interpretation. On a more advanced level, and as link to the mathematical literature, we establish briefly the connection to topics like continuous measurement theory (of photon counting), the Quantum Stochastic Schrödinger Equation, and quantum trajectories (here as as time evolution of a radiatively damped atom conditional to observing a given photon count trajectory). As an example of the application of the formalism we discuss quantum state transfer in a quantum optical network.

The freezing in the title refers to a property of point processes: let $\left ( X_i \right )_{i\geq 1}$ denote a point process which is locally finite and has finite maximum. For a function f continuous of compact support, define $Z_f=f\left ( X_1 \right )+f\left ( X_2 \right )+....$ We say that freezing occurs if the Laplace transform of $Z_f$ depends on f only through a shift. I will discuss this notion and its equivalence with other properties of the point process. In particular, such freezing occurs for the extremal process in branching random walks and in certain versions of the (discrete) two dimensional GFF.
Joint work with Eliran Subag

In spite of enormous success of the theory of integrable systems, at least three important problems are not resolved yet or are resolved only partly. They are the following:
1. The IST in the case of arbitrary bounded initial data.
2. The statistical description of the systems integrable by the IST. Albeit, the development of the theory of integrable turbulence.
3. Integrability of the deep water equations.
These three problems will be discussed in the talk.

Classifying regular systems of first order linear ordinary equations is a classical subject going back to Poincare and Dulac. There is a gauge group whose action can be described and an integrable normal form produced. A similar problem for higher order differential equations was never addressed, perhaps because the corresponding equivalence relationship is not induced by any group action. Still one can develop a reasonable classification theory, largely parallel to the classical theory. This is a joint work with Shira Tanny from the Weizmann Institiute, see http://arxiv.org/abs/1412.7830.

We consider "higher dimensional Teichmüller discs", by which we mean complex submanifolds of Teichmüller space that contain the Teichmüller disc joining any two of its points. We prove results in the higher dimensional setting that are opposite to the one dimensional behavior: every "higher dimensional Teichmüller disc" covers a "higher dimensional Teichmüller curve" and there are only finitely many "higher dimensional Teichmüller curves" in each moduli space. The proofs use recent results in Teichmüller dynamics, especially joint work with Eskin and Filip on the Kontsevich-Zorich cocycle. Joint work with McMullen and Mukamel as well as Eskin, McMullen and Mukamel shows that exotic examples of "higher dimensional Teichmüller discs" do exist.

I will explain how to bound from above and below the expected Betti numbers of a random subcomplex in a simplicial complex and get asymptotic results under infinitely many barycentric subdivisions. This is a joint work with Nermin Salepci. It complements previous joint works with Damien Gayet on random topology.

Algebraic and Complex Geometry

We proved that any K-semistable log Fano cone admits a special degeneration to a uniquely determined K-polystable log Fano cone. This confirms a conjecture of Donaldson-Sun stating that the metric tangent cone of any close point appearing on a Gromov-Hausdorff limit of Kähler-Einstein Fano manifolds depends only on the algebraic structure of the singularity. This is a joint work with Chi Li and Chenyang Xu.

'I am a geometric topologist, and I'm interested in problems in both geometric topology and geometric group theory. I study groups acting on spaces in a variety of contexts: groups acting on hyperbolic space with quotient the complement of a knot in S3, groups acting on trees, how to make a "good" space for a group to act on, and the many ways a particular group can act on a particular space. I also like to understand the geometry of these spaces.

I was trained (if a mathematician can be trained) as a 3-manifold topologist. Work that came out of my thesis showed that hyperbolic 2-bridge knot complements are virtually fibered. The relevant point is that every 2-bridge knot complement has a finite cover which is very nice geometrically: it is the complement of a link of great circles in S3. I've studied when a 3-manifold has a cover which contains an embedded incompressible surface, by using eigenspaces of covering group action. That every closed hyperbolic 3-manifold has such a cover is known as the virtually Haken conjecture. My current research on knot complements studies the question of commensurability: When do two manifolds or orbifolds have a common finite-sheeted cover? Commensurability is an equivalence relation on manifolds and orbifolds which is very rich even when restricted to knot complements. It tells us a lot about the geometry of the knot complement. For example, the shape of the cusp of a knot complement restricts its commensurability class.

Recently, I've been working on some questions about groups generated by involutions and the type of spaces they can act on. When does a right-angled Coxeter group act by reflections in hyperbolic space? When does the automorphism group of a reflection group act on a CAT(0) space? My approach to these group theoretical questions is deeply influenced by 3-dimensional hyperbolic manifolds and orbifolds. In turn, geometric group theory informs my research on manifolds and orbifolds.'

A new type of a simple iterated game with natural biological motivation is introduced. Two individuals are chosen at random from a population. They must survive a certain number of steps. They start together, but if one of them dies the other one tries to survive on its own. The only payoff is to survive the game. We only allow two strategies: cooperators help the other individual, while defectors do not. There is no strategic complexity. There are no conditional strategies. Depending on the number of steps we recover various forms of stringent and relaxed cooperative dilemmas. We derive conditions for the evolution of cooperation.
Specifically, we describe an iterated game between two players, in which the payoff is to survive a number of steps. Expected payoffs are probabilities of survival. A key feature of the game is that individuals have to survive on their own if their partner dies. We consider individuals with simple, unconditional strategies. When both players are present, each step is a symmetric two-player game. As the number of iterations tends to infinity, all probabilities of survival decrease to zero. We obtain general, analytical results for n-step payoffs and use these to describe how the game changes as n increases. In order to predict changes in the frequency of a cooperative strategy over time, we embed the survival game in three different models of a large, well-mixed population. Two of these models are deterministic and one is stochastic. Offspring receive their parent’s type without modification and fitnesses are determined by the game. Increasing the number of iterations changes the prospects for cooperation. All models become neutral in the limit $(n \rightarrow \infty)$. Further, if pairs of cooperative individuals survive together with high probability, specifically higher than for any other pair and for either type when it is alone, then cooperation becomes favored if the number of iterations is large enough. This holds regardless of the structure of pairwise interactions in a single step. Even if the single-step interaction is a Prisoner’s Dilemma, the cooperative type becomes favored. Enhanced survival is crucial in these iterated evolutionary games: if players in pairs start the game with a fitness deficit relative to lone individuals, the prospects for cooperation can become even worse than in the case of a single-step game.

Birch gave an extremely efficient algorithm to compute a certain subspace of classical modular forms using the Hecke action on classes of ternary quadratic forms. We extend this method to compute all forms of non-square level using the spinor norm, and we exhibit an implementation that is very fast in practice. This is joint work with Jeffery Hein and Gonzalo Tornaria.

De nombreux problèmes d’optimisation sont NP-complets. Nous ne connaissons pas de problème NP-complet qui admette un algorithme optimal de résolution s’exécutant en temps polynomial en la taille de l’instance (sinon P=NP serait établi), et l’intuition commune est que P =/= NP. Pour ces problèmes, la recherche de solutions optimales peut donc être prohibitive. Les algorithmes d’approximation offrent un compromis intéressant: par définition, ils s’exécutent en temps polynomial et fournissent des solutions dont la qualité est garantie. Nous introduirons la notion d’algorithme d’approximation et de schéma d’approximation en temps polynomial, et nous illustrerons ces notions sur de nombreux exemples. Nous montrerons également comment établir qu’un problème n’admet pas d’algorithme d’approximation (à moins que P=NP), ou comment établir une borne inférieure au facteur d’approximation de tout algorithme d’approximation (sauf si P=NP).

The $p$-adic Igusa zeta function, topological and motivic zeta function are (related) invariants of a polynomial $f$, reflecting the singularities of the hypersurface $f = 0$. The first one has a number theoretical flavor and is related to counting numbers of solutions of $f = 0$ over finite rings; the other two are more geometric in nature. The monodromy conjecture relates in a mysterious way these invariants to another singularity invariant of $f$, its local monodromy. We will discuss in this survey talk rationality issues for these zeta functions and the origins of the conjecture.

In this lecture I will describe a framework for the Fredholm analysis of non-elliptic problems both on manifolds without boundary and manifolds with boundary, with a view towards wave propagation on Kerr-de-Sitter spaces, which is the key analytic ingredient for showing the stability of black holes (see Peter Hintz' lecture). This lecture focuses on the general setup such as microlocal ellipticity, real principal type propagation, radial points and generalizations, as well as (potentially) normally hyperbolic trapping, as well as the role of resonances.
