The Symposium will be centered on the work of Cédric
Villani (Fields Medal 2010), and its current and potential
The Program will focus on the many facets of entropy:
kinetic theory, optimal transport, geometry, such
as the role played by by entropy in physical, geometric,
and transport phenomena.
The scientific program is aimed at a wide audience, including graduate students, mathematicians in other research areas, and scientists who use mathematics in an important way.
The Symposium will feature a public opening with
lectures by Cédric Villani and antoher reknowned
mathematician, as well as a special program for high-school
and undergraduate students. All events will be broadcast
