Some mathematical papers
Quelques articles mathématiques
Fifty years ago, a theorem by Xavier Fernique
on stationary Gaussian random processes (1974) has been
quite important even ouside the field of Probability.
I recall here
a proof of it, together with the necessary background
(24 pages, PDF, June 15th, 2024).

Un texte très bavard concernant les
opérateurs sur un espace HI réel,

Entropy of spherical marginals and related inequalities,
preprint by Franck Barthe, Dario Cordero-Erausquin and B. Maurey,
(15 pages, PDF ; has appeared in
J. Math. Pures Appl. 86 (2006), 89-99).
Weakly null sequences in
L_{ 1 },
preprint by W.B. Johnson, B. Maurey and G. Schechtman,
(13 pages, PDF ; has appeared in
J. Amer. Math. Soc. 20 (2007), 25-36).
Easy Gaussian generic chaining
(7 pages, PDF;
posted on August 9th, 2005; last modified September 19th).
The aim of this rewriting of the "majorizing measure theorem" is to
convince the reader that the proof is, after all, relatively simple.
Easy Gaussian generic chaining, numerically oriented version
(7 pages, PDF; posted on September 13th, 2005;
last modified September 30th). This version aims to a reasonable
value of the constant involved; it is therefore not so simple
and should not be read before the "simple" version above.
Notes from a series of lectures on HI spaces
(held at Spetses, Greece, summer 1994)
I never completed this project, and I have not worked on this text since
1996; it contains therefore lots of gaps and errors.
However, a few people have mentioned these Notes in their work, so I
decided to post them here, although they are not (and probably will never
be) in decent or final form.
