  • My notes (fr) for the seminar "Geometry of groups, symplectic and contact geometries", organised by Camille Horbez and Anne Vaugon.
  • Some notes (fr), titled "Billards, tours de Young et paires standards", written for the workshop in ergodic theory at the university of Orsay. They are a short and technical introduction to hyperbolic billiards, to some tools used in their study (Young towers and standard pairs), and to some applications of averaging methods to billiards. I presented a second talk on the averaging methods themselves, following the excellent introduction by Jacopo de Simoi and Carlangelo Liverani.

  • A Beamer (fr) for the lecture on "Volumes mixtes et théorème d'Hadwiger", Journées Louis Antoine on convexity, Rennes, April 5th, 2012.
