|Title:||Baire category, the bang-bang theorem, and the Euler equations of inviscid flow|
|Seminar:||Slow Pitch Seminar|
|Speaker:||Alberto Bressan, Penn State University|
|The Baire category theorem (1899) is primarily used as a tool
for proving results in functional analysis, such as the open mapping
theorem or the closed graph theorem.
One century later, surprising connections have emerged between
Baire's theorem and other branches of nonlinear analysis.
In this talk I shall discuss a number of applications
touching the theory of nonlinear ODE's in Banach spaces,
the bang-bang theorem for control systems, and
the existence of a huge family of weak solutions to
Euler's equations of inviscid (compressible or incompressible)
