    • Abstract
      Suppose that you have a fortune of and seek to reach 0 by placing
      bets at fixed odds on repetitions of a given event such as the appearance of red(or black) on each spin of a roulette wheel. What is the best strategy for you to reach your goal? What strategy will get you there in the least expected time? What if you are competing with another player?
      I will discuss these and related problems in both discrete and continuous
      time.

    • Abstract
      The incompressible Euler equations were derived more than 250 years ago
      by Euler to describe the motion of an inviscid incompressible fluid.
      It is known since the pioneering works of Scheffer and Shnirelman that
      there are nontrivial distributional solutions to these equations which
      are compactly supported in space and time. If they were to model the
      motion of a real fluid, we would see it suddenly start moving after
      staying at rest for a while, without any action by an external force.
      A celebrated theorem by Nash and Kuiper shows the existence of C1 isometric
      embeddings of a fixed flat rectangle in arbitrarily small balls
      of the threedimensional space. You should therefore be able to put a
      fairly large piece of paper in a pocket of your jacket without folding
      it or crumpling it.

      In a first joint work with Laszlo Szekelyhidi we pointed out that these
      two counterintuitive facts share many similarities. This has become even
      more apparent in some recent results of ours, which prove the existence
      of Hoelder continuous solutions that dissipate the kinetic energy. Our
      theorem might be regarded as a first step towards a conjecture of Lars
      Onsager, which in his 1949 paper about the theory of turbulence asserted
      the existence of such solutions for any Hoelder exponent up to 1/3.
      Recently, the threshold 1/5 has been reached by Philip Isett in his PhD
      thesis and in a joint work with Tristan Buckmaster we show that the treshold
      1/3 can be achieved at the price of giving up the time-regularity.
