2012 Winter School: Wrap Up

The 2012/13 Winter School focused on recent progress in non-linear partial differential equations and their applications. In particular, the program emphasised three interlocking themes.

The first week comprised introductory lecture courses by Professors Min- Chun Hong, Ben Andrews and Neil Trudinger, and the second week focused on key topics in recent research and contemporary applications.


Program – Introductory and Advanced Courses 

Nonlinear Ellipptic Equations, Optimal Transportation and Geometric Applications

Ricci and Mean Curvature Flow and their Applications

Minimal Surfaces and External Eigenvalues Problems

Harmonic Map and Applications
