Reflecting a Langevin process at an absorbing boundary
We consider a Langevin process with white noise random forcing. We suppose that the energy of the particle is instantaneously absorbed when it hits some fixed obstacle. We show nonetheless, the particle can be instantaneously reflected, and study some properties of this reflecting solution.

On ultrametricity in spin glass theory
One of the crucial issues in spinglass theory is the supposed ultrametricity structure of the socalled "pure states". Despite of the recent progress on the SherringtonKirpatrick model, this is still an open question. We discuss some simple examples where ultrametricity can be proved, and which (hopefully) shed some light on the issue.

A stochastic variational derivation of the NavierStokes equation
A stochastic variational principle for the (two dimensional) NavierStokes equation is established. The velocity field can be considered as generalized velocity of a diffusion process with values on the volume preserving diffeomorphism group of the underlying manifold. NavierStokes equation is reinterpreted as a perturbed equation of geodesics for the L^{2} norm.

Transition path theory
Transition Path Theory is the statistical theory of the reactive trajectories between two prespecified sets A and B, i.e. the portions of the path of a Markov process during which the path makes a transition from A to B. We show that various probability distributions on the reactive trajectories can be expressed in terms of the equilibrium distribution of the process and the socalled committor functions which give the probability that the process reaches first B before reaching A, either backward or forward in time.

Multiplicative large deviations and turbulent transport
Many characteristics of the transport in turbulent flows important for a range of applications from chemical reactivity of admixtures to time scale for rain onset or treshold for drag reduction in polymer solutions may be related to the statistics of large deviations of the finitetime Lyapunov exponents in the flow. Examples of such characteristics include the long time behavior of the density fluctuations or multifractal dimensions of the attractor measures. I shall discuss how in the Kraichnan model of turbulent flow a relation to known integrable models permits to establish the existence of the multiplicative large deviation regime for the finitetime Lyapunov exponents and to calculate the corresponding rate function.

Heat kernel measures and Riemannian geometry in infinite dimensions
We will consider several different examples of infinitedimensional manifolds: HilbertSchmidt groups which are natural infinitedimensional analogues of matrix groups, loop groups and the homogeneous space Diff(S1)/S1 associated with the Virasoro algebra. We will list what is known about the Ricci curvature in each of the case, and how its boundness (or unboundenss) is reflected in the heat kernel measure behaviour.

On the derivation of Fourier law
We discuss the problem of deriving Fourier law of heat conduction for a Hamiltonian system consisting of a lattice of coupled anharmonic oscillators with noise on the boundary of the domain.

Some combinatorial aspects of YangMills theory
YangMills theory in two dimensions is almost a topological theory because it is invariant under areapreserving diffeomorphisms. Once it is discretized, it becomes a combinatorial theory closely related to fat graphs on surfaces. I will explain how this point of view allows one to compute rigorously and in a simple manner the partition function. I will also describe a new discrete YangMills theory which, unlike the usual one, allows one to include the topology of the bundle at the discrete level. In other words, this is a discrete theory of connections on nontrivial bundles over surfaces. The continuum limit of this theory exists and provides a decomposition into mutually singular parts of the continuum limit of the usual discrete theory.

Brownian motion on volume preserving diffeomorphisms group and existence of global solutions of 2D stochastic Euler equation
A geometric Brownian motion performs a continuous time infinitesimal perturbation of the state of the system; this perturbation conserves the energy; exact expression for the energy transfer towards high modes is obtained ensuring existence for all time of the solution.

On quantum contiguity
Lucien Le Cam introduced contiguity in Probability Theory as part of his work on the mathematical foundations of asymptotic statistical analysis. The author extended this notion to the analysis of open system dynamics (classical or quantum) in [2] and [1]. The conference is aimed at giving a survey of recent results on contiguity and its applications to Quantum Information, namely, the relation of contiguity with fidelity.

Mathematical aspects of QCD in two dimensions
Two dimensional quantum gauge theory, studied originally as a warmup for the four dimensional theory, has proved to be rich in mathematical ideas and thereby interesting in its own right. This talk will present an overview of some of the history, central ideas, and mathematical results and directions in quantum chromodynamics in two dimensions. The quantum field theory here involves stochastic analysis in formulating the functional integrals rigorously, it involves topology and symplectics when considering the gauge field on compact surfaces, and connects up with free probability theory when the symmetry group is taken to be U(N) with large N.

On the disconnection of discrete cylinders
In this talk we will report on some recent results obtained in part with A. Dembo concerning simple random walk in a discrete cylinder with a base which is a large finite graph of bounded degree. The main focus lies in understanding the time it takes the walk to disconnect the cylinder or expressed in a more picturesque language, we consider the problem of a "termite in a wooden beam".

Some results on differential operators with random elements
The talk deals with localization of the principal value of an elliptic operator with random elements and asymptotic behavior of solution to some parabolic equations including nonlinear terms with random coefficients.
