HY2W04 - Statistical mechanics, integrability and dispersive hydrodynamics

The prediction of climate change and its impact on extreme weather events is one of the great societal and intellectual challenges of our time. It has three parts: 1. Make the distinction between weather and climate.2. Understand the dynamics of the fluctuations of the physical variables. 3. Predict how the variances of the fluctuations are affected by statistical correlations in their fluctuating dynamics. This seminar investigates a stochastic geometric mechanics framework called LA SALT which can formally meet all three parts of the challenge for the problem of climate change, given a deterministic fluid theory derived from the variational principles of geometric mechanics.
