University of Texas at Austin

This program will be a concentration period to include a school and a conference on “Calculus of Variations and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations” which will bring together research groups from the NSF funded program “Focused Research Group (FRG): “Vectorial and geometric problems in the Calculus of Variations”” with collaborative structures between Craig Evans, UC Berkeley; Ovidiu Savin, Columbia U and Alessio Figalli with Francesco Maggi at The University of Texas at Austin.

The entire two-week program will take place at UT Austin from May 18, 2015 until May 29, 2015 and will involve senior and junior researchers, postdocs and graduate students. During the first week, there will be a school consisting of three minicourses, each six hours, while the second week will host a conference with a series of one-hour lectures.
