Theme of Workshop:

The purpose of this workshop will be to discuss mathematical issues concerned with high oscillations. These include harmonic analysis, integral operators and Maslow's theory, and the asymptotics of integrable equations and Hamiltonian systems. An important aim of the workshop is to foster interdisciplinary interactions and to promote mathematical research under the encompassing principle of high oscillations. Applications include nonlinear optics, imaging and multiscale computation.

Location and Cost:

The workshop will take place at the Newton Institute and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study bedrooms with shared bathroom at Wolfson Court. The conference package, costing £520, includes accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on Sunday 25 March 2007 to breakfast on Saturday 31 March 2007, and lunch and refreshments during the days that lectures take place. Participants who wish to attend but do not require accommodation or meals will be charged a registration fee of £90. Self-supporting participants are very welcome to apply.

Application Forms:

Are available here. Invited participants to the semester long programme whose dates coincide with those of the workshop need not apply or pay any registration fee.

Scientific Enquiries:

Should be sent to Professor T Fokas.
