Calculus of Variations and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations

This program will be a concentration period to include a school and a conference on “Calculus of Variations and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations” which will bring together research groups from the NSF funded program Focused Research Group (FRG): “Vectorial and geometric problems in the Calculus of Variations” with collaborative structures between Craig Evans, UC Berkeley, Ovidiu Savin, Columbia U, and Alessio Figalli with Francesco Maggi at UT Austin.

The entire two-week program will take place at Columbia University from May 16, 2016 until May 27, 2016 and will involve senior and junior researchers, postdocs and graduate students. During the first week, there will be a school consisting of four minicourses, each five lectures, while the second week will host a conference with a series of one-hour lectures.

Financial support for graduate students/early postdocs is available. Please register below and specify in the comment section whether you plan to attend the school and/or the conference. The deadline for the application is March 31st 2016.
