Extension of Liouville’s theorem to the case of RDS
The case without first integrals:
X_1, …, X_p are p generators of RDS on a compact manifold M of dimension p, which commute with each other, and whose deterministic parts are linearly independent everwhere. Then M is a p-dimensional torus T^p with a periodic coordinate . . . → Read More: Notes on random systems 3: Liouville theorem for RDS
What is a random fixed point ?
A reference: Ochs – Oseledets: Examples of RDS on a closed unit ball without random fixed points. (So the topological fixed point theorem is NOT valid for RDS)

These series of notes are for a research project that I’m doing with a student of mine. Some of what I write here will look quite stupid, because I myself know little about random dynamical systems.
I’ll explain why we’re interested in these systems later. But first, here . . . → Read More: Notes on random systems 1: RDS vs NDS
We just got a rather surprising result in our joint research project with Christophe Wacheux (currently post-doc at EPFL) about the intrinstic convexity of singular affine spaces.
The problem is to study the intrinsic local and global convexity of the affine structure of the base space of integrable Hamiltonian systems whose singularities are nondegenerate . . . → Read More: Monodromy can kill global convexity!
Có một bài toán “khá đơn giản” sau về vấn đề thuật toán, tôi biết chắc chắn là giải được (vì có định lý về vấn đề này), có điều tôi thử tự tìm lời giải mà loay hoay mãi chưa ra:

Our paper with Truong Hong Minh entitled “Commuting Foliations” has been accepted for publication in a special isue dedicated to Alain Chenciner in the journal Regular and Chaotic Dynamics
The most imporant part of this paper is actually the exposition of the relationship between singular foliations and Nambu structures: how to go from a . . . → Read More: Commuting Foliations
Next year I’ll come to Sanya, Hainan, China to attend “GAP XII”, an international conference on geometry and physics.
The organizers said they would have money to cover local expenses for a number of participants, so if anyone is interested in visiting Sanya, please contact them (or contact me if you don’t know them)

There seems to be a lot of confusion (among my colleagues, and also of myself) concerning the relationships between singular foliations and integrable p-vector fields (a.k.a. Nambu structures). The aim of this note is to make some clarifications.
1) How to construct a singular foliation from an integrable p-vector field ?
The obvious (but . . . → Read More: Integrable p-vector fields and singular foliations
This week I’m at the AlanFest in EPFL, Switzerland, on the occasion of Alan Weinstein’s 70th birthday. I gave a talk on Thursday entitled:
A normalization toolbox, with applications to singular foliations
Here are the slides of my talks (with some typographical errors), for people who might be interested:

I’m writing down here the ideas for proving that smooth nondegenerate integrable dynamical systems are smoothly linearizable. The analytic case can be proved using analytic torus actions (my paper about that will appear in Ergodic Th Dyn Sys). I think the smooth case is also true, but the proof is much more complicated than . . . → Read More: Linearization of smooth integrable systems
Take a singular foliation say of dimension k.
Locally at each point there exists $k$ vector fields X1, …, Xk which are tangent to the foliation and which are linearly independent almost everywhere (we will only consider foliations which satisfy this property)
The wedge product L = X1…Xk is a Nambu structure tangent to . . . → Read More: Anti-canonical bundle of singular foliations
This is the topic that I want to talk about in the conference in honor of Alan Weinstein’s 70th birthday in EPFL (Lausanne) in July. This post is the place in keep the preparation for my talk.
A work of mine on the linearization of proper Lie groupoids was directly influenced by Alan (it . . . → Read More: Linearization and stability of singular foliations

The “tail of the cat”, which was drawn 3 times there on the blackboard, was an example (of an exotic symplectic R^2n) that intrigued many people
