Spectral Analysis on noncompact Manifolds

Conference in Honor of Werner Müller

Time: Thursday, June 24 - Saturday June 26, 2010
Location: Mathematik-Zentrum, Lipschitz Lecture Hall, Endenicher Allee 60, Bonn
Organizers: Clara Aldana (Bonn), Daniel Grieser (Oldenburg), Eugenie Hunsicker (Loughborough), Matthias Lesch (Bonn), Alexander Strohmaier (Loughborough)

Conference Description

Analysis on manifolds and in particular spectral analysis of geometric operators on manifolds has been an extremely fruitful area of mathematics with many wide ranging applications in physics. The conference will focus on spectral analysis on non-compact manifolds, which is an active and vibrant area of research.

Talks will be organized around three main themes:

L2 Index theory and eta invariants,

Trace formulas and determinants,

Spectral analysis of geometric operators on noncompact manifolds

The conference is timed to honor Werner Müller on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
