CVGMT Eventshttp://cvgmt.sns.it/events/en-usSun, 24 Jun 2018 00:59:29 +0000An Analyst, a Geometer and a Probabilist Walk Into a Barhttp://cvgmt.sns.it/seminar/448/25 - 29 Jun 2018: Cardiff University. <p>This workshop aims to bring together mathematicians working at the crossroads of analysis, geometry and probability. More and more problems require solutions that invlove ingredients from these different fields, and this workshop will provide an opportunity for sharing novel techniques.</p><p>Allowing plenty of time for discussions, as well as funding for students and early career researchers, it is hoped that this workshop can inspire new projects and collaborations. Moreover, this is an opportunity to highlight the growing strength of the School of Mathematics at Cardiff University and establish further links in the UK, Europe and beyond.</p>http://cvgmt.sns.it/seminar/448/Calculus of Variations at Paris-Diderothttp://cvgmt.sns.it/seminar/452/25 - 27 Jun 2018: Paris. <p>The aim of this workshop is to bring together experts in Calculus of Variations working in geometric measure theory, optimal transport and analysis on singular sets such as graphs or branched structures. We will focus both on the theoretical and the numerical aspects of the topic. We hope that this workshop will be the occasion to foster the emergence of new ideas and interactions among the participants.</p><p>List of Speakers:</p><p>Elie Bretin, INSA Lyon, FranceMaria Colombo, ETH - ZurichGuido De Philippis, SISSA, Trieste, ItalyFlaviana Iurlano, UPMC, FranceBenoît Merlet, Université Lille, FranceMatteo Novaga, Università di Pisa, ItalyMatthias Röger, Universität Dortmund, GermanyBerardo Ruffini, Université de Montpelier, FranceFilippo Santambrogio, Université Paris-Sud, FranceEugene Stepanov, St. Petersburg State University, RussiaBozhidar Velichkov, Université Grenoble Alpes, FranceBarbara Zwicknagl, TU, Berlin, Germany</p><p>If you wish to attend the workshop, please register on the website before 1st June 2018.</p>http://cvgmt.sns.it/seminar/452/Youth Workshop on Analysishttp://cvgmt.sns.it/seminar/474/27 - 29 Jun 2018: Novosibirsk, Russia. <p>Youth Workshop on Analysis is organized by the Sobolev Institute of Mathematics SB RAS and Regional Mathematical Center NSU.

The theory spans across specific areas of mathematics ranging from probability (law of large numbers, percolation theory, etc.) to partial differential equations (Gamma-convergence and variational problems, viscosity solutions, geometry, etc.) and statistical mechanics and applications in, among others, composite materials, phase transitions, control theory and optimal designs. This workshop aims to bring the different approaches and communities working on random homogenisation together. We will cover a number of current aspects of random homogenisation, in particular with regards to elliptic and parabolic equations, as well as the aforementioned connections to statistical mechanics. We also make connections to modern questions in periodic homogenisation as well as applications and numerical methods.</p><p>Organising Committee: Pierre Cardaliaguet (Ceremade), Nicolas Dirr (Cardiff), Patrick Dondl (Freiburg), Panagiotis Souganidis (Chicago).</p>http://cvgmt.sns.it/seminar/490/New trends in the variational modeling of failure phenomenahttp://cvgmt.sns.it/seminar/442/20 - 24 Aug 2018: Vienna. <p>The workshop will take place at the Erwin Schrödinger International Institute for Mathematics andPhysics (ESI) in Vienna, during the week 20 August- 24 August 2018.
