Dedicated to Professor Michael Oberguggenberger‘s 65th birthday

Happy Birthday Michael!

Aims and scope

This conference continues a long-standing tradition of international conferences on generalised functions gathering researchers working in all branches of generalised functions. The most recent conferences were held in Dubrovnik (Croatia, 2016), Southampton (United Kingdom, 2014), Martinique (France, 2011), Vienna (Austria, 2009), Bedlewo (Poland, 2007), Novi Sad (Serbia, 2004), Guadeloupe (France, 2000), …

Topics include, but are not limited to: Distribution theory, hyperfunctions, algebras of generalised functions, integral transforms, Linear and nonlinear partial differential equations, regularity, stochastic analysis Pseudodifferential operators and microlocal analysis, function spaces, Applications in mathematical physics, and other sciences, Geometric problems and nonlinear distributional geometry, Harmonic analysis, modulation spaces, time-frequency analysis

2018 Young Functional Analysts Workshop, Newcastle University, 21-23 March 2018

Newcastle LogoYFAW is an annual conference for PhD students and other early-stage researchers in Functional Analysis. YFAW offers participants an opportunity both to present their own work in front of a sympathetic audience and to get to know less familiar areas of current research. We encourage all participants to give a talk, but those who prefer not to give a talk are still welcome to attend. We specially encourage female PhD students to present their research in the form of a contributed talk or a poster.

The meeting will consist of short talks from participants and longer talks from our invited speakers.

The invited speakers are:

Prof. Robert Archbold (Aberdeen University, Scotland)
Prof. Eva Gallardo-Gutierrez (Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain)
Dr David Kimsey (Newcastle University, England)
Prof. Alexander Pushnitski (King’s College London, England).

Further information, including titles and abstracts, will appear on website

We are grateful to be supported by the London Mathematical Society through a scheme 8 grant, which will enable us to subsidise accommodation and subsistence costs for  participants. We also welcome international participants, and encourage those interested to contact us at the email address below to discuss possible funding availability.

We are committed to providing help with the organization of any special arrangements regarding those participants with children, such as arranging accommodation for them and their dependants within close proximity to the university.

Registration will open on the 20th January 2018.

International Master in Mathematical Physics, Université de Bourgogne

Poster  International Master in Mathematical Physics

Institut de Mathematiques de Bourgogne
Universite de Bourgogne
Dijon, France

Academic year: 2018-2019

The Department of Mathematics of the Universite de Bourgogne offers a two-year master program in Mathematical Physics.

Advanced students may be admitted to the 2nd year of the Master.

Students who will successfully complete the M.Sc. program will be encouraged to apply to one of the Ph.D. fellowships that will be available for pursuing their studied in Dijon at the doctorate level.

The main aim of this program is to provide advanced lectures on the mathematical methods of modern theoretical physics in the framework of mathematics curriculum. We offer lecture courses for the students with background in mathematics or mathematical physics giving an introduction to the mathematical methods used for such branches of theoretical physics  as quantum field theory, statistical mechanics, general relativity,  gauge theories, string theory etc. The coursework will cover different  fields of mathematics (algebra, geometry, analysis) and will highlight their applications to the problems of theoretical and mathematical physics.

The student will be integrated from the very beginning into the mathematical physics group of the IMB (Institut de Mathematiques de Bourgogne)  and will have to prepare by the end of their 2nd year a  master dissertation under the supervision of a member of the Institute.

The offered courses will include:

1st year of the Master (M1)

Differential geometry
Fourier analysis
Functional analysis
Groups and representations
Mathematical methods of classical mechanics
Partial differential equations
Quantum Mechanics
Numerical methods

2nd year of the Master (M2)

Mathematical methods of quantum physics
Riemann geometry and integrable systems
Lie groups and Lie algebras
Quantum groups
Cohomological field theories
Mathematical methods of gravitation

All the lectures will be given in English.

We will also provide several mini courses by the research visitors of the IMB  as well as by invited professors in the framework of the Erasmus program.

We expect to have up to 10 fellowships for students.

The interested candidates are strongly advised to already get in touch
with us, and send a cv to:
