This conference will offer talks by leading scientists within the field of Harmonic Analysis and Partial Differential Equations, with close context to the following research fields:

  1. Deterministic and Stochastic Dispersive PDE and Fluids
    Nonlinear dispersive PDE arise in  various contexts such as fluid mechanics, quantum mechanics, and mathematical relativity. Some of the prototypical nonlinear dispersive models are completely integrable and have solutions. The long-time behavior of generic solutions is one of the fundamental questions. By scaling considerations, large time-scales are connected to low spatial regularity.

  2. Nonlinear elliptic equations and free boundary value problems
    Free boundary value problems are inherently non-linear problems arise in many contexts in sciences and engineering. For instance, this includes the description of the melting of ice in water, the evolution of a thin fluid film or the shape of a membrane above some obstacle under the influence of gravity. The past ten years have in particular witnessed a major development in thin obstacle type problems driven by various linear and nonlinear elliptic operators.

  3. Inverse Problems
    The study of inverse problems seeks to recover unknown properties and parameters from indirect measurements, motivated, for instance, by the natural sciences, engineering or medicine. The study of PDE driven inverse problems includes prototypical problems such as the nonlinear, elliptic Calderon problem, the nonlinear, hyperbolic Gelfand problem, the nonlinear transport-type boundary rigidity problem or the inversion of the linear X-ray transform. These problems are situated at the interface of various disciplines of pure and applied mathematics involving the analysis of PDEs, harmonic analysis and geometry.

    Dear guests,

    some of our guests are currently receiving phishing messages from scam travel companies such as travellerpoint(dot)org asking about travel details. Unfortunately, there is very little we can do to prevent this. Please, do not share any personal, or payment data with persons contacting you from emails that you cannot identify as belonging to the organizers at the University of Bonn or the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics. And feel free to reach out, if you are unsure!
