Mini-symposia

Mini-symposia


In this moment, we have accepted two mini-symposium proposals:

I. On Multivariate Orthogonal Polynomials and their Applications

Organizers:

Francisco Marcellán, Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain

Teresa E. Pérez Fernández, Universidad de Granada, Spain

Invited Speakers:

Antonia Delgado, Universidad de Granada, Spain
Herbert Dueñas, Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Colombia
Lidia Fernández, Universidad de Granada, Spain
Fátima Lizarte, Universidad de Granada, Spain
Misael Marriaga, Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Spain
Ester Pérez Sinusia, Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain
Miguel Piñar, Universidad de Granada, Spain
Franciszek Szafraniec, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Krakow, Poland

II. Riemann-Hilbert method and its applications in approximation theory and beyond

Organizers:

Alexander Tovbis, University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL, USA

Marco Bertola, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada and SISSA, Trieste, Italy

Preliminary list of participants:

Maurice Duits, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden
Arno Kuijlaars, KU University of Leuven, Leuven, Belgium
Abey Lopez-Garcia, University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL, USA
Marco Bertola, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada and SISSA, Trieste, Italy
Alexander Tovbis, University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL, USA

Topics of the mini-symposia include orthogonal polynomials, approximation theory and, possibly other subjects, where one of the main research tools is the method of Riemann-Hilbert problem (RHP). Many problems in these area can be expressed in terms of the corresponding RHPs. The nonlinear steepest descent method of Deift and Zhou has proven to be very effective in calculating large/small parameter asymptotics of RHPs, leading to an array of new interesting asymptotic results.



Participants interested in the mini-symposia must contact with their organizers.
