In cooperation with the CRM (Centre de Recherches Mathematiques), the Fields Institute, and the PIMS (Pacific Institute for Mathematical Sciences), MSRI will sponsor a summer graduate workshop on Metric measure spaces: geometric and analytic aspects in Montreal, Canada.

In recent decades, metric-measure spaces have emerged as a fruitful source of mathematical questions in their own right, and as indispensable tools for addressing classical problems in geometry, topology, dynamical systems and partial differential equations.  The purpose of the 2011 summer school is to lead young scientists to the research frontier concerning the analysis and geometry of metric-measure spaces, by exposing them to a series of mini-courses featuring leading researchers who will present both the state-of-the-art and the exciting challenges which remain.

Details are available on the SMS Homepage.

Special restrictions:

  1. In addition to the nomination at MSRI, a separate application via the SMS Homepage is required to participate in this workshop.
  2. Participation is subject to selection by the organizers, see Description of the SMS.
  3. MSRI can only support students from US institutions.
  4. Due to the small number of students supported by MSRI, only one student per institution will be accepted.
