and the title of his talk is
 
  The Reasons Behind of Some Classical Constructions in Geometry and
  Analysis
 
The abstract is given below. Tea and coffee at 12:00, same room.
 
Hope to see you there. For information about future colloquiua, see

Abstract:  The geometric part of this talk will be mostly a "hand-waving"
discussion on some very recent and, I believe, very surprising results (all
in collaboration with Shiri Artstein-Avidan), and on most of which Shiri
gave a colloquium a year ago. To get the flavor of the analytic part, please
try to give sense to the following statements (which only sounds
metamathematical):
 
(i) Derivation on C^1 functions is a "regularized" logarithm of the product;
(ii) The second derivative is a "regularized" logarithm of the first
derivative;
(iii) The entropy function is the derivation on C(R) (i.e. the only
derivation).
(The last statement is the easiest, which one may try to understand before
my talk.)
 
The analytic part is joint with Hermann Konig, but has a piece also joint
with Shiri Artstein.
