The meeting will concentrate on Analysis and Partial differential Equations, specifically in relation to the diverse set of topics Dr. Eric T Sawyer has worked on and influenced during his rich and prolific career:
  • Weighted norm inequalities
  • Several complex variables
  • Unique continuation
  • Singular integrals, fractional integrals
  • Elliptic equations and systems
  • Degenerate equations
  • Monge-Ampère equations
  • Number theory and Combinatorics

The objective of this event is to promote scientific exchange among the participants by celebrating Eric Sawyer’s contributions to mathematics. The participants would include Professor Sawyer's current and former students, collaborators and friends, as well as junior mathematicians working in the areas of interest. It will be of great value to the future development of these fields to make more widely known the mathematics touched on by this outstanding Canadian mathematician.
