Harmonic Analysis and PDEs Workshop
19th April 2018
University of Birmingham

Local Organisers: Susana Gutierrez, Alessio Martini, Diogo Oliveira e Silva, Maria Carmen Reguera


This workshop is a one day meeting of the LMS Harmonic Analysis and PDEs network, funded in part by an LMS Scheme 3 Grant and the ERC, and will take place at the University of Birmingham. All interested persons are welcome to attend.

There will be a total of four talks on Thursday 19th April. There will also be an informal dinner on Thursday evening.

Prospective participants may be interested in knowing that, on the previous day (Wednesday 18th April), the Young Mathematicians Colloquium is taking place at the University of Birmingham, including a talk by Kenneth Falconer (University of St Andrews).

The University of Birmingham is most easily reached via its own train station which is a short ride from Birmingham's main station (New Street station). Full campus maps and directions to the university can be found here. The School of Mathematics is based in the Watson Building (R15 on the campus map).
