Description

This workshop will study the spectral theory of geometric operators, including:

  • spectral invariants
  • applications in conformal geometry
  • classification of 4-manifolds
  • index theory
  • scattering theory

The goal of this workshop is to encourage interaction among people working on these problems in partial differential equations, geometry, topology, harmonic analysis, number theory, representation theory, and probabilistic methods, and to assess future directions. Speakers will include:

  • Victor Guillemin (MIT)
  • John Lott (Michigan)
  • Jie Qing (UC - Santa Cruz)
  • Jean-Michel Bismut (Paris-Sud [Orsay])
  • Tom Branson (Iowa)
  • Richard Melrose (MIT)
  • Werner Müller (Bonn)
  • Peter Sarnak (Princeton)
  • Gang Tian (MIT)
  • Steve Zelditch (Johns Hopkins)
  • Jochen Brüning (Berlin)
  • Charles Fefferman (Princeton)
  • Matt Gursky (Indiana)
  • Tobias Colding (NYU)
  • Peter Li (UC - Irvine)
  • Kate Okikiolu (UCSD)
  • Percy Deift (UPenn)
  • Paolo Piazza (Rome)
  • Wei-Ming Wang (Paris-Sud [Orsay])
  • Kai Köhler (Bonn)
  • Bent Ørsted (Odense)
  • Paul Yang (USC)
  • Colin de Verdiere (Grenoble)
  • Christophe Soulé (IHES)
  • Rick Schoen (Stanford)
