On the spinor representation of spacelike surfaces in 4dimensional Minkowski space
We will first talk about the following result: a spacelike immersion of a surface in 4dimensional Minkowski space may be represented by a spinor field solution of a Dirac equation on the surface. We will then apply this representation formula to the description of the flat surfaces with flat normal bundle and regular Gauss map in \(\mathbb{R}^{3,1}\).

On positivity of a class of conformal covariant operators
I will report on a recent joint work with Jeffrey Case in which we study the positivity of a class of nonlocal conformal covariant operators which are fractional GJMS operators defined via scattering theory on asymptotic hyperbolic manifolds, which includes the DirichletNeumann operator as a special case. When the order of the operator is higher than 2, we will explore the positivity property of this class of operators via Sobolev trace extension formulas in the setting of metric spaces with measures.

Upper bounds for spectrum of the Laplacian on weighted manifolds
I will discuss the existence of upper bounds for the spectrum of the Laplacian on a compact weighted manifold and how sharp they are. I will give an application to the spectrum of a Laplace type operator on a Riemannian vector bundle. Most of the talk is a join work with A. El Soufi and A. Savo.

AlexandrovFenchel type inequalities in the hyperbolic space
In this talk, we describe the various AlexandrovFenchel inequalities and weighted AlexandrovFenchel inequalities in the hyperbolic space. As an application, we obtain an optimal Penrose type inequality for the new GaussBonnetChern mass for a class of asymptotically hyperbolic manifolds. This talk is based on the joint works with Guofang Wang and Jie Wu.

On the constraint equations in general relativity
The initial data for the Cauchy problem in general relativity are the metric \(g\) induced on the Cauchy surface and its second fundamental form \(K\) in the spacetime solving the Einstein equations. It follows from the Einstein equations that \(g\) and \(K\) have to satisfy the socalled constraint equations. Solving the constraint equations then appears as an important problem in general relativity. Until recently, the known methods only allowed to construct solutions with constant or almost constant mean curvature \(g^{ij} K_{ij}\). In this talk I will review recent breakthroughs in the construction of far from constant mean curvature solutions to the Einstein constraint equations.

Some recent results on positive mass theorem
I will present some recent results obtained with Andreas Hermann concerning positive mass theorem. In particular, we reduced the problem to showing that the positive mass theorem holds on any fixed non spin simply connected manifold.

Solutions without any symmetry for some nonlinear problems in the plane
I will present a construction of entire solutions which are defined in the plane and have finite energy, for some nonlinear problems arising from physics. In particular, this yields the existence of solutions which have no symmetry. The construction is inspired from the construction of compact constant mean curvature surfaces in Euclidean 3space by N. Kapouleas.

Some results on the calculus of variations of Riemann surfaces
We shall present various aspects of the minimization of functionals for immersion of surfaces under constrained conformal class. We will focus in particular on the variations of the Willmore and the area functional in the class of weak conformal immersions of given Riemann surfaces.

On the HardySchrodinger operator with a singularity on the boundary
We consider borderline elliptic partial differential equations involving the HardySchrodinger \(L_\gamma:=\Delta \gamma \frac{1}{x^2}\) operator on a domain \(\Omega \subset {\bf R}^n\), when the singularity zero is on the boundary of the domain. This operator arises naturally when dealing with the CaffarelliKohnNirenberg inequalities and their associated EulerLagrange equations. Now, it is well known that the operator \(L_\gamma\) is nonnegative when \(0\) is in the interior of a domain as long as \(\gamma \leq \frac{(n2)^2}{4}\). The situation is much more interesting when \(0\in \partial \Omega\). For one, the operator is then nonnegative for all \(\gamma \leq \frac{n^2}{4}\). The problem of whether the Dirichlet boundary problem \begin{equation}\label{one} \hbox{\(\Delta u \frac{\gamma}{x^2}u=\frac{u^{2^*(s)1}}{x^s}\) on \(\Omega\)} \end{equation} has positive solutions is closely related to whether the best constants in the CaffarelliKohnNirenberg inequalities are attained. Here \(2^*(s)=\frac{2(ns)}{n2}\) and \(s\in [0, 2)\). BrezisNirenberg type methods were used by C.S. Lin et al. to show that this is indeed the case when \(\gamma < \frac{(n2)^2}{4}\) under the condition that the mean curvature of the domain at \(0\) is negative. Their results extend previous work by GhoussoubRobert who dealt with the case \(\gamma =0\). The case when \(\frac{(n2)^2}{4}\leq \gamma <\frac{n^2}{4}\) turned out to be much more delicate. A detailed analysis of the linear HardySchrodinger operator \(L_\gamma\) performed recently by GhoussoubRobert surprisingly show that \(\gamma=\frac{n^21}{4} \) is another critical threshold for the operator. While the C. S. Lin et al. results extend to the situation where \(\gamma <\frac{n^21}{4} \), the interval \(\gamma\in [\frac{n^21}{4},\frac{n^2}{4})\) requires the introduction of a notion of "mass" in the spirit of ShoenYau for the HardySchrodinger operator. The existence of solutions then depend on the sign of such a mass.

Constant mean curvature surfaces and overdetermined elliptic problems
In this talk I will discuss the deep relation between overdetermined elliptic problems and constant mean curvature surfaces, and how the theory of minimal and constant mean curvature surfaces can be used in order to deal with the construction of new solutions of overdetermined elliptic problems or their classification.

Teichmueller harmonic map flow into negatively curved targets
The Teichmueller harmonic map flow is a way of finding minimal surfaces by performing a gradient flow for the harmonic map energy that is different from the harmonic map flow. I will describe what the flow is, sketch the basic theory, and then go on to describe some recent regularity theory. Joint work with Melanie Rupflin.

Recent Results in \(L_{qp}\)Cohomology
I will recall the basic definition of (reduced and non reduced) \(L_{qp}\)Cohomology of a non compact Riemannian manifold, and survey relation with other notions of geometric analysis such the \(L_p\)Hodge theorem, quasiconformal structures or the topology at infinity. I will also present several notions of \(L_{qp}\)Cohomology on metric measure spaces and discuss conditions for invariance under quasiisometry.
