Description

This two-day program will consist of a "crash course" in topics in PDE relevant to the Analysis on Singular Spaces main program, and in particular will attempt to get graduate students, postdocs, and even advanced undergraduates ready for the Introductory Workshop the following week. The focus will be topics in analysis on smooth manifolds whose generalizations to singular spaces will be the focus of the main program. Female researchers are particularly encouraged to attend this workshop and will be given priority for support of travel and lodging expenses. Accommodations: If you are staying over to attend the “Introductory Workshop on Analysis on Singular Spaces” (September 02, 2008 to September 05, 2008) please make your arrangements at the Rose Garden Inn. Please note the rates for weekend nights will increase and run from $165 + Tax a night.
