Hypocoercivity workshop04 Feb 2020, by Events in
Fry Building, 3-4th March 2020
Hypocoercivity is concerned with the characterisation of convergence to equilibrium of semi-groups acting on a L^2 space whose generators are degenerate i.e. admit a non-trivial kernel. In such scenarios classical Hilbert space techniques cannot be used to
establish e.g. exponential convergence to equilibrium and new approaches are needed. Such questions arise naturally in the context
of statistical physics and the study of associated PDEs and novel solutions, typically relying on a modification of the inner product involved, have emerged in the last 10-15 years. These ideas have recently attracted some attention in the context of the study of Markov processes arising in computational statistics, in particular Langevin dynamics and piecewise deterministic Markov processes (PDMP).
The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers from different communities with an interest in hypocoercivity ideas and techniques at a time where they find their way into new application areas, leading to new questions and challenges.
