Speaker: Prof. Albert Fathi (Georgia Institute of Technology, USA)
Title:    "Singularities of solutions of the Hamilton-Jacobi equation. A
toy model: distance to a closed subset "

Abstract:   This is a joint work with Piermarco Cannarsa and Wei Cheng. The
distance function $d_F$ to a closed subset $F$ of Euclidean space ${ f
R}^k$ is given by $$d_F(x)=inf_{fin F}|x-f|.$$ It is a Lipschitz, hence
differentiable almost everywhere. We will discuss some topological
properties of the set ${ m Sing}(d_F)$ of points where $d_F$ is not
differentiable. More generally, we will discuss properties of the set of
singularities of a viscosity solution of the Hamilton-Jacobi equation
$$partial_tU+H(x,partial_xU)=0,$$ when $H$ is a Tonelli Hamiltonian. We
will give applications in Riemannian geometry. We will explain during the
lecture all notions (beyond common knowledge) necessary to understand it.

N.B.: This talk is part of the activity of the MIUR Excellence Department

*-  At the end of the Colloquium, there will be a refreshment ---
