**Gradient Systems**

Organization: Dott. Michele Miranda, Departiment of Mathematics and Math4Tech Center, University of FerraraThe 13th International Internet Seminar on Evolution Equations is intended to be an introduction to the analysis of evolution equations with gradient structure, with an emphasis on nonlinear parabolic equations. Gradient systems arise naturally in many physical models such as diffusion models, phase separation models and in surface evolution, but they also arise artificially as steepest descent methods in root finding algorithms, in various optimisation problems or in image analysis. The dissipation of some physical or abstract energy has an influence on the wellposedness of these gradient systems and on the qualitative behaviour of their solutions, including parabolic regularity, order preserving properties, or long-time behaviour. In this introductory course, starting from finite dimensional models, we will discuss some of these aspects. The lectures are at a beginning graduate level and assume only basic familiarity with Functional Analysis. The lectures are posted weekly starting from the middle of October 2009 and ending in February 2010.

**Ergodic Theory: an Operator-Theoretic Approach**

Organization: Dott. Michele Miranda, Departiment of Mathematics and Math4Tech Center, University of FerraraThe 12th Internet Seminar on Evolution Equations is devoted to an operator-theoretic approach to the long-term behaviour of dynamical systems on topological and/or measure spaces. The field itself — Ergodic Theory — arose from Boltzmann’s work on statistical mechanics and is classical by now. During the 1970s Furstenberg developed an interesting and powerful link with combinatorial number theory, a link that also established a new field in Mathematics — multiple ergodic theory — whose later development forms a cornerstone in the proof of the stunning recent results of Tao and Green on arithmetic progressions in the primes. Beside these striking applications, ergodic theory comprises a lot of beautiful results from functional analysis.

The lectures are at a beginning graduate level and assume only basic familiarity with Functional Analysis.

Organised by the German-Italian consortium "International School on Evolution Equations", the annual Internet Seminars introduce PhD students and postdocs to varying subjects related to Evolution Equations. The course consists of three phases. In Phase 1 (October-February), a weekly lecture is provided via the ISEM website. In Phase 2 (March-May), the participants form small international groups to work on projects. The projects complement the theory of Phase 1 and provide some applications of it. Phase 3 (7-13 June 2009) consists of the final one-week workshop in Blaubeuren (Germany). The teams present their projects, and lectures will be delivered by leading experts in the field.
