Title1: Surface plasmons of geometrically singular nanostructures
Abstract: Surface plasmons, which are optical resonances supported by metallic nanostructures, are extremely useful for manipulating light on the nanoscale. When the nanostructures have geometric singularities such as corners and two close-to-touching surfaces, their surface plasmons exhibit extreme light concentration and singular spectral shifts. In this talk, we shall discuss our recent works (S. Yu and H. Ammari SIAM Review 60 (2018), and S. Yu and H. Ammari PNAS (2019)) on understanding of these singular plasmons and their applications to the effective design of plasmonic metamaterials. This talk is based on joint works with Habib Ammari (ETH).

Title2: The inverse problem for wave equations based on optimal transportation theory and deep learning
Abstract: The wave-based inverse problems aiming at geological imaging is often accompanied by nonlinearity, significant ill-posedness, and high computational cost. It usually uses the iterative method based on gradient descent to solve the corresponding optimization problem and is easy to fall into local minimums. Therefore, improving the convexity of the objective function of the optimization problem, avoiding the local minimization, and improving the efficiency of the large-scale inversion are the key issues in the study of the inverse problem of the wave equation.
First, with the aid of optimal transport theory, we propose a new data transformation method, improve the stability and convexity of the inverse problem, and expand the convergence radius of the inverse problem. At the same time, we also study the noise in the data and the inaccuracy of the measurement to the disturbance of the optimal transport metric, and systematically propose a fast and stable solution. Second, convolutional neural networks are also used to improve the performance and accuracy of the algorithm further. The network architecture we use is modified from the deep class aware model. This model does not use a fully connected layer, so fewer training samples are needed in the training step, and less memory and lower arithmetic complexity are required in the inference step. We use only a small amount of representative data during the training of the network, and the trained model can be used to extract the main features from the high-dimensional intermediate results automatically. This approach provides a novel platform for data-driven inversion/imaging methods.

Title3: Layer Potential Techniques in homogenization of perforated domains
Abstract: We present some recent results on periodic layer potentials, and their applications in solving the cell problems associated to homogenization of Dirichlet problems on periodically perforated domains. In particular, it can be used to quantify the rate of convergence of certain rescaled cell problems, and, as a result, yield quantitative homogenization result and new correctors.

Title4: Inverse random source problems for time-harmonic acoustic and elastic waves
This talk concerns the random source problems for the time-harmonic acoustic and elastic wave equations in two and three dimensions. The goal is to determine the compactly supported external force from the radiated wave field measured in a domain away from the source region. The source is assumed to be a microlocally isotropic generalized Gaussian random function such that its covariance operator is a classical pseudo-differential operator. Given such a distributional source, the direct problem is shown to have a unique solution by using an integral equation approach and the Sobolev embedding theorem. For the inverse problem, we demonstrate that the amplitude of the scattering field averaged over the frequency band, obtained from a single realization of the random source, determines uniquely the principle symbol of the covariance operator. The analysis employs asymptotic expansions of the Green functions and microlocal analysis of the Fourier integral operators associated with the Helmholtz and Navier equations.
