GEOMETRIC EVOLUTIONS AND NONLINEAR ELLIPTIC EQUATIONS
26 March - 6 April 2001
Organisers: BH Andrews and NS Trudinger
Themes: This workshop will treat the most recent developments in nonlinear elliptic and parabolic equations and their applications. This subject has seen quite spectacular advances recently with applications of fully nonlinear equation theory to outstanding problems in geometry, relativity and optimisation, and there is great potential for further advances in the near future.
Particular goals are to encourage increased interaction between the areas of fully nonlinear elliptic equations and geometric evolution equations, to provide an introduction for young researchers and to help experienced researchers moving into these areas. Organisation: The EuroWorkshop will be organised in two parts. The first (26 to 30 March) will emphasise Geometric Evolution Equations; the second (2 to 6 April) will emphasise Fully Nonlinear Elliptic Equations.
Speakers to include: BH Andrews, Y Brenier, L Caffarelli, HD Cao, K Ecker, G Huisken, T Ilmanen, P Topping, NS Trudinger, JLL Velazquez, XJ Wang.
Location and cost: The EuroWorkshop will take place at the Newton Institute and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study bedrooms with shared bathrooms at Wolfson Court, a hall of residence adjacent to the Institute. The workshop package costs £650, which includes registration fee, accommodation, breakfast, lunch and dinner from dinner on Sunday 25 March until breakfast on Saturday 7 April, and refreshments on the days that lectures take place. For those attending just one week of the workshop, the cost will be £300. Limited financial support will be available to young researchers from EC Member States and Associated States (see below). Self-supporting participants of any age and nationality are welcome to apply.
Completed application forms should be sent to Maureen Clark at the Newton Institute. Applicants are requested to express a preference for either the first part of the EuroWorkshop on Geometric Evolution Equations or the second part on Fully Nonlinear Elliptic Equations, even if they wish to attend both parts.
The closing date for the receipt of applications is 31 January 2001.
Scientific enquiries may be addressed to BH Andrews or NS Trudinger.
