This book covers a wide spectrum of hot topics and current trends in mathematics, including noncommutative algebra via deformation theory, optimal transportation, nonlinear potential theory, kinetic theory and gas dynamics, geometric numerical integration, finite simple groups of small essential dimension, optimal control problems, extended Dynkin diagrams, spin glasses, aspherical closed manifolds, Boltzmann systems, birational geometry of projective varieties and directed graphs, nonlinear diffusion, geometric constructions of extremal metrics on complex manifolds, and Pell’s equation in polynomials. The book comprises a selection of contributions by leading international mathematicians who were speakers at the “INdAM Day”, an initiative dating back to 2004 at which the most recent developments in contemporary mathematics are presented.
