Results from BaBar, Belle and CLEONov 15 2003The BaBar experiment has discovered a narrow state, denoted as D*_{sJ}(2317)+, near 2.32 GeV/c^2 in the D+s pi^0 invariant mass distribution from inclusive $e^{+}e^{-}$ interactions at center-of-mass energies near 10.6 GeV. The same experiment has hinted ... More

Structure preserving noise and dissipation in the Toda latticeApr 10 2018In this paper, we use Flaschka's change of variables of the open Toda lattice and its interpretation in term of the group structure of the LU factorisation as a coadjoint motion on a certain dual of Lie algebra to implement a structure preserving noise ...

On numerical approximation schemes for expectation propagationNov 14 2016Several numerical approximation strategies for the expectation-propagation algorithm are studied in the context of large-scale learning: the Laplace method, a faster variant of it, Gaussian quadrature, and a deterministic version of variational sampling ...

On a deformation of the nonlinear Schrödinger equationJul 09 2015Aug 20 2015We study a deformation of the nonlinear Schr\"odinger equation recently derived in the context of deformation of hierarchies of integrable systems. This systematic method also led to known integrable equations such as the Camassa-Holm equation. Although ... More

On a Lagrangian reduction and a deformation of completely integrable systemsJan 12 2015Apr 05 2016We develop a theory of Lagrangian reduction on loop groups for completely integrable systems after having exchanged the role of the space and time variables in the multi-time interpretation of integrable hierarchies. We then insert the Sobolev norm $H^1$ ... More

Le capo du troupeau des séries de FourierNov 16 2012Jun 10 2013A glimpse at $\sum{{\sin(kx)}\over{k}}$ gives a few lines exposition of Fourier series's quadratic mean convergence for square integrable functions and Dirichlet's convergence theorem of the Fourier serie of a piecewise differentiable function with integrable ...

Quantitative form of certain k-plane transform inequalitiesMay 15 2012Nov 18 2014Let d > 1 and 0 < k < d. The k-plane transform satisies some Lp to Lq dilation-invariant inequality. In this case the best constant and the extremizers are explicitly known. We give a quantitative form of the inequality with respect to these extremizers, ... More
