Summer School “Singularities in Science and Engineering”

Summer School “Singularities in Science and Engineering”

22-31 August 2022

Ghent Analysis & PDE Center

Ghent University


The study topic for this school concerns methods in mathematical analysis for integro-partial differential equations which arise in physical modelling and include irregular coefficients and initial data, i.e. include singularities. The topics also span a range of mathematical tools used in such analysis. The topic of the school is of fundamental importance from both the theoretical perspective and the wide range of concrete applications in problems with strong singularities.

The main objective of the school is to significantly enrich student’s knowledge in both well-known and very new mathematical tools for modelling and treating strong singularities in evolutionary systems of equations which arise in modelling physical phenomena. The aim of the school is also to bring together experts in both theory and applications, to initiate and deepen the cooperation between different fields on important concrete problems, using latest theoretical developments in the field.

Planned Lecturers: in progress

Information for participants

For attending the school, the charge is 10 euro per day to cover organisational expenses. The participation of PhD candidates from Doctoral Schools at UGent, colleagues from UGent, and Lecturers is free of charge.

If you need administrative support (visa, accommodation, etc.) for your attendance, please let us know in advance.

Public Lecture

In the framework of the school, a public lecture is planned for a wide audience. The details will be announced shortly.
