AUSTRALIAN-GERMAN WORKSHOP ON DIFFERENTIAL GEOMETRY IN THE LARGE – Conference

Jo L

  • 4 February 2019 - 8 February 2019
    8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Organisers: Owen Dearricott ( University of Melbourne), Diarmuid Crowley (University of Melbourne), Thomas Leistner (University of Adelaide), Yuri Nikolayevsky (LaTrobe University), Wilderich Tuschmann (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology).

Program Description: 
In this week long international conference we plan to highlight recent advances in global Riemannian and metric geometry, topology, and geometric analysis to foster communication between experts and early career researchers from Australia and abroad and identify directions to set the stage for future advances. In particular, we plan to have a problem session towards the end of the conference that will emphasise known problems in the field, but will go beyond to zero in upon new problems emerging from our discussions during the workshop. This will be beneficial to young mathematicians wanting a comprehensive overview and keep abreast of up to the minute developments and open problems.

Keynote Speakers: 
Ben Andrews, Australian National University
Christoph Boehm, University of Muenster
Robert Bryant, Duke University
Fuquan Fang, Capital Normal University
Thomas Farrell, Tsinghua University
Rod Gover, University of Auckland
Karsten Grove, University of Notre Dame
Frances Kirwan, University of Oxford
Claude LeBrun, Stony Brook University
Peter Petersen, University of California Los Angeles
Neil Trudinger, Australian National University
Guofang Wei, University of California Santa Barbara
