New Trends in Dirichlet Forms and Optimal Transport

Dates: August 29 - September 2, 2022

Venue:  TBA, Bonn

Organizers: Matthias Erbar, Martin Huesmann, Eva Kopfer, Max von Renesse, Hendrik Weber

Scientific Advisor: Karl-Theodor Sturm

Description:This conference is embedded in the conference "From Dirichlet forms to Wasserstein geometry". It is devoted to highlight recent developments in the theory and applications of Dirichlet forms and optimal transport.

The conference program will consist in three afternoons with parallel sessions dedicated to topics ranging from singular behavior in stochastic systems, partial differential equations, and analysis and geometry of singular spaces.
