Conference Venue: Huxley Building, Imperial College London (see the schedule for exact rooms)

Address :     Department of Mathematics, Imperial College London, 180 Queen’s Gate, London SW7 2AZ, United Kingdom


Featured topics include:


Linear and nonlinear PDEs


Function spaces


Spectral theory


Microlocal analysis


Pseudo-differential operators


Related topics

The aim of the conference is to highlight the use of various function spaces in the modern analysis of linear and nonlinear partial differential equations. The function spaces include Sobolev space-time spaces, Colombeau’s algebras, modulation spaces, symbol classes, etc.

The program may include some survey lectures on the use of particular function spaces for various problems in PDEs.

The workshop is the second conference in the series of meetings devoted to “PDEs and Function Spaces”. The first meeting was an international symposium “Function Spaces and Partial Differential Equations” held on 18-20 February 2008 at Osaka University, Japan.
