Santander (Spain)

Professor Luis Caffarelli has been a key figure in the last four decades in the field of PDEs, and his mastery is widely recognized, for which he has been awarded the Abel 2023 prize, on top of many other prestigious distinctions (Wolff, Steele, etc.). The school brings together leading figures in the field, collaborators of Luis. The main target audience is researchers in their early stages of training, both doctoral and postdoctoral, as well as more advanced researchers.

School format: The main courses will be taught by Xavier Cabré (ICREA-UPC, Barcelona) and Alessio Figalli (ETH Zürich, FIM Director). The lectures will be given by renowned researchers in the fields of nonlinear PDE and free boundaries. These two blocks aim to give a broad picture of the mathematical topics investigated by Luis Caffarelli, from the turn of the century to the present time, highlighting his vitality.
