Linear and nonlinear elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations have been deliberated by continuous, discrete, and computational methods. There are deep connections between the geometry and analysis of Riemannian and Kähler manifolds. The topics of function theory and the analysis of the Laplace and heat equations on manifolds include harmonic function theory on complete Riemannian manifolds, the spectrum of the Laplacian operator, spaces of holomorphic functions on complete Kähler manifolds, partial differential equations on complete manifolds and their relation with the geometry of complete Riemannian and Kähler manifolds. Nonlinear elliptic and parabolic methods in geometry and analysis to be considered include Kähler-Einstein metrics, Yamabe problem, and the porous medium equation.
