Lecture abstract: This presentation will focus on an integrated numerical model to simulate the cardiac function. Physics-based models will represent the backbone of our approach, however their synergistic use with data driven models will be addressed as well. Applications to several problems of clinical relevance will be discussed. References [1] A. Quarteroni, L. Dede’ and F.

Anne Moreau
Laboratoire de Mathématiques d’Orsay, Paris-Saclay University
Quasi-lisse vertex algebras

About the lecturer: Anne Moreau is a full professor at the Laboratoire de Mathématiques d’Orsay and a scientific director of the Jacques Hadamard Library in Orsay (Paris-Saclay University). Her scientific expertise consists of several diverse topics, including representation theory, vertex algebras and algebraic geometry. She gave numerous courses on those topics, organized a few workshops, supervised several doctoral students, while currently she is preparing a book “Arc spaces and vertex algebras” with Tomoyuki Arakawa. She also manages or serves in editorial boards of several prestigious journals, such as “Algebras and Representation theory”, “Collection Panaromas et Synthèses de la SMF”, and “Publications Mathématiques de Besançon”.

Lecture abstract: To any vertex algebra one can canonically attach a certain Poisson variety called the associated variety. It is an important invariant which plays a role analogous to associated varieties of primitive ideals of the enveloping algebra for simple Lie algebras. Vertex algebras whose associated variety has only finitely many symplectic leaves are called quasi-lisse. They enjoy remarkable properties and appear in the 4D/2D duality in physics. This talk will give an introduction to the theory through various examples and applications.
