    • Abstract
      This lecture aims at providing an answer that can be given to the following five key questions:

      1) Why a crowd is a \social, hence complex,” system?
      2) How mathematical sciences can contribute to understand the \behavioral dynamics of crowds”?
      3) How the crowd behaves in extreme situations such as panic and how models can depict them?
      4) Can a crowd be subject to large deviations (black swan)?
      5) By which mathematical tools multiscale features of a crowd can be treated?

      The answer to the key question takes advantage of recent research activity documented in the five titles in the bibliography. The answer opens to challenging research perspectives.

    • Divergent series: from thomas bayes’s bewilderment to today’s resurgence via the rainbow

    • Abstract
      Following the discovery by Bayes in 1747 that Stirling’s series for the factorial is divergent, the study of asymptotic series has today reached the stage of enabling summation of the divergent tails of many series with an accuracy far beyond that of the smallest term. Several of these advances sprang from developments of Airy’s theory of waves near optical caustics such as the rainbow. Key understandings by Euler, Stokes, Dingle and Écalle unify the different series corresponding to different parameter domains, culminating in the concept of resurgence: quantifying the way in which the low orders of such series reappear in the high orders.

    • Abstract
      We review some Liouville type results from the classical Cauchy-Liouville theorem for harmonic functions up to some recent contributions related to quasilinear second order and semilinear higher order problems.
