Hausdorff School: “Geometric Analysis”

Hausdorff School on Geometric Analysis and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations

August 08 - 12, 2022

Venue: Lipschitz-Saal (Endenicher Allee 60, Bonn) 

Organizers: Tim Laux (University of Bonn), Theresa M. Simon (University of Münster)

Topic: This school aims at presenting state-of-the-art techniques in geometric analysis and nonlinear PDEs to PhD students and young researchers. Its scope reaches from abstract theory to the rigorous analysis of problems originating in physics and materials science. In particular, the school will focus on the interaction of geometrical and analytical ideas in the study of nonlinear PDEs.

Format: The core of this 5-day school will be the lectures given by top researchers in the field, each of them consisting of four 1-hour classes. In a 90-minutes poster session, attending students and young researchers will have the possibility to present their research projects to their peers, the experienced speakers, and other senior participants.

Key Speakers: The following speakers will give a lecture series:

  • L. Craig Evans (UC Berkeley, USA):
    An overview of convergence methods for nonlinear PDE and some highlights
  • Inwon C. Kim (UC Los Angeles, USA):
    Density-constrained transport and interface motions 
  • Felix Otto (MPI MIS, Leipzig, Germany):
    A variational approach to the regularity theory for optimal transportation
  • Maria G. Westdickenberg (RWTH Aachen, Germany):
    Convergence, metastability, and saddle points: shape information in nonlinear PDE
