Spring Mini Courses in Analysis and Geometry 2018

February 8-11, 2018

Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Program Description:

The purpose of the Spring Mini Courses in Analysis and Geometry is to bring attention to the advances made to the Falconer, Feichtinger, and Fuglede conjectures, and will consist of three lecture courses:

Peter G. Casazza - University of Missouri, will give a three-day lecture course on the Feichtinger conjecture.

Alex Iosevich - University of Rochester, will give a three-day lecture course on the Falconer conjecture.

Palle Jorgensen - University of Iowa, will give a three-day lecture course on the Fuglede conjecture.

Each lecture will be followed by a discussion seminar; the Spring Mini Courses will give all participants the opportunity and the time to discuss the advances made as well as the drawbacks encountered, and to discuss possible new approaches. A substantial part of the funds will be devoted to support participation by individuals who do not have other federal support. We target participation of a diverse audience, including women, faculty at smaller, mainly undergraduate institutions with limited financial and networking resources, undergraduate and graduate students, recent PhDs, and under-represented minorities.

The proposed workshop falls under the broad umbrella of analysis, harmonic analysis and geometric analysis in particular, frame theory, Fourier analysis and fractal geometry, and geometric measure theory.

The workshop is supported by NSF grant DMS-1800823. It provides partial support for participants.




The conference hotel is Staybridge Suites Baton Rouge - University at Southgate where we have saved a block of rooms. Before you make a reservation, contact one of the organizers.
