Controlled structures for partial differential equations

Abstract : The thesis project has various possible directions: a) Improve the understanding of the relations between the theory of Regularity Structures developed by M.Hairer and the method of Paracontrolled Distributions developed by Gubinelli, Imkeller and Perkowski, and eventually to provide a synthesis. This is highly speculative and at the moment there are no clear path towards this long term goal. b) Use the theory of Paracontrolled Distributions to study different types of PDEs: transport equations and general hyperbolic evolution equation, dispersive equations, systems of conservation laws. These PDEs are not in the domain of the current methods which were developed mainly to handle parabolic semilinear evolution equations. c) Once a theory of transport equation driven by rough signals have been established it will become possible to tackle the phenomena of regularization by transport noise which for the moment has been studied only in the context of transport equations driven by Brownian motion, using standard tools of stochastic analysis. d) Renormalization group (RG) techniques and multi-scale expansions have already been used both to tackle PDE problems and to define Euclidean Quantum Field Theories. Paracontrolled Distributions theory can be understood as a kind of mul- tiscale analysis of non-linear functionals and it would be interesting to explore the interplay of paradifferential techniques with more standard techniques like cluster expansions and RG methods.
