From irreversibility in physics to optimal convergence rates in: 50 years of research in Dauphine: yesterday, today and tomorrow 1968 / 2019

Jean Dolbeault
The explanation of irreversibility by L. Boltzmann at the end of the 19th century raised the attention of mathematicians to the notion of entropy, which was later reinvented several times in various areas of science ranging from probability theory to information theory. The issue of quantitative estimates is fundamental for applications: what is the rate of convergence of a solution to an equilibrium, if there is any ? First results on this issue were obtained...
