The Heidelberg Laureate Forum (HLF) is a networking conference where 200 carefully selected young researchers in mathematics and computer science spend a week interacting with the laureates of the disciplines: recipients of the Abel Prize, ACM A.M. Turing Award, ACM Prize in Computing, Fields Medal and Nevanlinna Prize. Established in 2013, the HLF is annually organized by the Heidelberg Laureate Forum Foundation (HLFF). Read more

The award is to work on the joint project

Picone type identities and their applications in the analysis of partial differential equations

Dr Abimbola Abolarinwa is from the Department of Mathematics, University of Lagos, Nigeria, having done his PhD at the University of Sussex, UK.

The IMU – Simons African Fellowship Program supports research sabbaticals for mathematicians from African developing countries employed in Africa to travel to an internationally renown mathematical centre of excellence (worldwide) for collaborative research. All travel and living expenses of the grantees will be covered by the fellowship up to 5,000 USD. See more here. Please also see Simons Foundation Website.

Trends in Calculus of Variations and PDEs

Dear Colleagues,
We are organising the joint conference with the University of Sussex, UK, via ZOOM online, on 18-20 May 2022, on the topic:

Trends in Calculus of Variations and PDEs

The past decade has witnessed enormous advances and progress in the fields of Calculus of Variations and Partial Differential Equations. The new research, along with the developments of novel tools, techniques and ideas, at the same time has led to the formation of many challenging and fundamental open problems, that as ever, point at interesting and deep connections inside and outside mathematics. These range from real and harmonic analysis, algebraic and differential topology on the one hand to geometric analysis, regularity theory for elliptic systems, geometric measure theory, nonlinear elasticity and fluid mechanics on the other. The aim of this conference is to address some of these developments through a series of lectures and talks by some of the leading researchers in the fields.

Confirmed Speakers:
Jonathan Bennett (University of Birmingham, UK)
Matteo Bonforte (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain)
Nicolas Burq (Universite Paris-Sud, France)
Gui-Qiang G. Chen (University of Oxford, UK)

Hyperbolic meeting on 9 December 2021

School of Mathematical Sciences, Queen Mary University of London

Linear and nonlinear hyperbolic partial differential equations (PDEs) arise in basically all sciences (physics, chemistry, medicine, engineering, astronomy, etc.). In physics, they model several important phenomena, from propagation of waves in a medium (for instance propagation of seismic waves during an earthquake) to refraction in crystals and gas-dynamics. The purpose of this UK network on hyperbolic equations and related topics is to bring together the expertise on hyperbolic equations of three different mathematics department (Edinburgh, Imperial, Loughborough), to strengthen the existing research collaborations and to create new ones. Three 1-day workshops per year are planned focused on different approaches to hyperbolic equations and related topics (inverse problems, kinetic theory, imaging, microlocal analysis, general relativity, etc.).
