The TRR 181 seminar is held by Carina Geldhauser (Technische Universität Dresden) on January 31, 11 am at Universität Hamburg, Bundesstr. 53, room 22/23.
In this talk we introduce a point vortex description for a class of inviscid generalized SQG models. We state some of it basic properties and show tools from probability theory and statistical mechanics, e.g. law of large numbers, central limit theorem and mean field limit, which are used to study such point vortex models. The content of this talk is based on work in collaboration with Marco Romito (Uni Pisa), the presentation tries to avoid technicalities and to be accessible to a mixed audience.
