Show List of Speakers

This workshop will focus on the study of PDEs on singular spaces and their connections with the spaces' underlying geometry. Topics will be cohomology theory, index theory, and spectral geometry on the elliptic side; and wave propagation and associated inverse problems on the hyperbolic. A unifying theme will be asymptotic expansions of solutions in various regimes, as for instance high frequency eigenfunction expansions, which draws techniques from hyperbolic equations into the elliptic theory.
