Mardi 23 Octobre

11h00      Petr Grinevich (Moscow, en visite au CMAP) - Fermi-Pasta-Ulam recurrence for anomalous waves in nonlinear optics and Nonlinear Schrodinger equation   

Résumé de P. Grinevich: One of the basic model for anomalous (rogue) waves generation in nonlinear medias including nonlinear optics and ocean waves is the focusing Nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLS) with special initial data. In the spatial-periodic setting generic NSL solutions are provided using the finite-gap approach, but the corresponding formulas are very complicated. Recently, for the Cauchy data corresponding to anomalous waves, we found very simple explicit approximate solution in terms of elementary functions. These formulas were used in our joint work with experimental group from university Roma-1, in which the recurrence of anomalous waves in photorefractive crystals was studied. The talk is based on joint papers [1], [2] with P.M. Santini.

Mardi 6 Novembre

10h15      Sophie Ramananarivo (LadHyX, Ecole polytechnique) - Handling flows to self-propel
11h15      Nathalie Ayi (LJLL) - Un schéma "Asymptotic Preserving" pour la limite de diffusion d'une équation cinétique stochastique linéaire

Résumé de S. Ramananarivo: Bird flight and fish swimming are fascinating examples of moving bodies interacting with a fluid. By flapping its wings or fins, the animal imparts momentum to the surrounding flow and creates a jet which in turn propels it forward. Those body/fluid couplings are complex owing to the unsteady nature of the flows involved and a better understanding offers promising routes for man-made propellers.
The first part of this talk will look into how flapping flight is affected by the shape of the wings. Here we use an evolutionary algorithm to improve the forward speed of 3D-printed wings that heave up-and-down and propel within water. This iterative process leads to marked improvement in relatively few generations, with faster swimmers sharing distinct shape features.
In a second part, I will discuss how the locomotion of an individual is affected by the flows produced by neighbors. Using physical experiments that mimic the movements of fins or wings, we discovered that flapping bodies not only swim or fly faster when grouped together but that the flows also organize the group into ordered patterns with specific spacings. These findings suggest an intriguing analogy between animal groups and states of matter, in that a school might be viewed as a ‘swimming crystal’ of fish organized by flows.

Résumé de N. Ayi: On présente un schéma AP basé sur la décomposition micro-macro pour une équation cinétique stochastique linéaire. On est alors capable d'établir la stabilité uniformément en le libre parcours moyen pour ce schéma. Quelques simulations numériques validant notre schéma seront présentées.
