Microlocal Methods in Geometric Analysis and Mathematical Physics

Microlocal Methods in Geometric Analysis

October 27 - November 2, 1997

This workshop is a part of the program Microlocal Methods in Geometric Analysis and Mathematical Physics (fall 97).
This workshop was devoted to the aspects of geometric analysis and partial differential equations in which microlocal methods (or more generally "phase space techniques") have been or are becoming useful. The specific topics included:
  • geometric scattering theory
  • eigenvalue asymptotics and "quantum chaos" on manifolds
  • degenerate elliptic boundary value problems
  • geometric study of hyperbolic equations
In conjunction with the workshop Professor R.B. Melrose of Massachusetts Institute of Technology delivered series of lectures as part of the Fields Institute Distinguished Lecture Series. List of participants and Program are available!
