UCL London

The aim of the research summer school is to present several different modern perspectives on the rigidity and deformability of optimum point configurations. Three main points of view are presented in the lecture courses: the point of view of material science and elasticity; the point of view of approximation theory; and the point of view of the methods of Viazovska, based on linear programming bounds.

Funding covering local expenses is available for students and early carrer researchers, see the conference webpage for a link to the application form.

Organizers: Codina Cotar, Mircea Petrache.

Speakers: Keith Ball, Gero Friesecke, Douglas Hardin, Werner Krauth, Franz Merkl, Danylo Radchenko, Edward Saff, Sylvia Serfaty.
