Response Theory and Its Applications in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics

October 14-16, 2019 Institut Henri Poincaré

11, rue Pierre et Marie Curie, 75005 Paris (metro/RER Luxembourg)
Amphi Darboux, ground floor of IHP

Organisers: V. Baladi, W. Bahsoun, S. Galatolo, V. Lucarini

Goals:
In recent years, a great deal of effort across mathematics and natural sciences has been devoted to understanding the foundations of response theory in deterministic and stochastic dynamical systems and its actual range of applicability in a variety of complex systems of interest for applications. One of the most promising areas of application is related to geophysical systems. Specifically, response theory seems well suited for predicting climate change, studying the conditions leading to tipping points, investigating multiscale systems, and, possibly studying how extremes change as a result of climate change. While the foundation of response theory for time-independent perturbations has been thoroughly examined using the formalism of transfer operators, there is no rigorous basis for the applicability of response theory when time dependent perturbations are applied. This is an important open question for a myriad of applications.
This three-day workshop will bring together mathematicians and natural scientists to explore theoretical and applied aspects of response theory.
