Microlocal Analysis August 12, 2019 to December 13, 2019
Organizers Pierre Albin (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), Nalini Anantharaman (Université de Strasbourg), Kiril Datchev (Purdue University), Raluca Felea (Rochester Institute of Technology), Colin Guillarmou (École Normale Supérieure), LEAD Andras Vasy (Stanford University)

Microlocal analysis provides tools for the precise analysis of problems arising in areas such as partial differential equations or integral geometry by working in the phase space, i.e. the cotangent bundle, of the underlying manifold. It has origins in areas such as quantum mechanics and hyperbolic equations, in addition to the development of a general PDE theory, and has expanded tremendously over the last 40 years to the analysis of singular spaces, integral geometry, nonlinear equations, scattering theory… This program will bring together researchers from various parts of the field to facilitate the transfer of ideas, and will also provide a comprehensive introduction to the field for postdocs and graduate students.
