Description

Download the workshop announcement (PDF file format). This workshop is jointly sponsored by the Association for Women in Mathematics and MSRI. As with previous AWM/MSRI workshops, this is a celebration of careers of women in mathematics, on this occasion those of Olga Ladyzhenskaya and Olga Oleinik. The seminal work of Ladyzhenskaya and Oleinik in PDE and physical applications has generated many fascinating developments in the US, Russia and throughout the world. Some of these developments will be discussed in lectures at the workshop. Experts in PDE, numerical analysis and mathematical fluid dynamics will lecture about their work which is in the spirit of the achievements of Ladyzhenskaya and Oleinik. The primary goals of the Celebration are to assist, encourage, and inspire the junior participants, and to promote the achievements of women in mathematics. Talks and discussions by established mathematicians with careers in government, business, industry and academia will focus on contemporary issues of concern. Senior participants will provide role models and offer mentoring to their younger colleagues. Featured lectures will showcase the research and other contributions of outstanding women in mathematics, from the honorees to the present; poster sessions will give junior participants an opportunity to present and discuss their work. There will be many opportunities during the three days of the conference mix informally and to discuss research and career issues. Panel presentations will include:

  • How to choose a thesis advisor; the role of a thesis advisor, advice on what to strive for, and what to avoid, for advisor and advisee (note that both Ladyzhenskaya and Oleinik had many successful students).
  • Good and bad postdoctoral positions. Opportunities for research at the various Institutes in the US and elsewhere, how to apply, what happens at workshops, short courses, and programs.
  • The "two body" problem and strategies for solving it. (One might note that Ladyzhenskaya and her husband Kiselev worked together and had joint papers even though they eventually separated.)
  • Issues related to funding agencies: advice in preparing grant proposals; reviewing and being reviewed; the job of a rotator.
  • How to "defend" one's research time from competing demands.
  • Exploring an eventual move to administration.
