23 may 2003 - 26 may 2003   [open in google calendar]

Short Description

The symposium will focus on recent developments in partial differential equations and geometric measure theory. It will consist of two 5-hour minicourses presented by the principal lecturers, and ten 1-hour lectures given by the invited speakers. There will also be time allocated for contributed talks. The aim of this initiative is, on the one hand, to introduce students and young researchers to a larger mathematical community and help them to establish professional connections with key figures in their areas of interest. On the other hand, it will provide an opportunity to summarize some of the most recent progress in the fields, exchange ideas towards the solution of open questions, and formulate new problems and avenues of research.

Principal Lecturers

L. Ambrosio (Scuola Normale Superiore, Pisa, Italy): Sets of finite perimeter, BV functions, and currents in metric spaces; L. Caffarelli (Univ. of Texas at Austin): Some PDEs in periodic media: Minimal surfaces, fully nonlinear equations, and the Monge Ampere equation. Invited Speakers

Z. Balogh (Univ. of Bern, Switzerland), P. Hajlasz (Univ. of Warsaw, Poland, and Univ. of Michigan), F. Hamel (Univ. of Aix-Marseille III, France), R. Hardt (Rice Univ.), I. Holopainen (Univ. of Helsinki, Finland), K.-A. Lee (Seoul National Univ., Korea), Y. Li (Rutgers Univ.), T. Souganidis (Univ. of Texas at Austin), J. Tyson (Univ. of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), J. Viaclovsky (MIT).
