Participant Testimonials

Oct 06 - Oct 11, 2019

This was a wonderful opportunity to have a focused relatively small workshop to learn the ins and outs of a more specialized but interesting area of application for my own more abstract work. This gave me additional perspective and context for how the application area fit in with my own more basic "pure math" research work. I hope to follow up on this with work concerning some open problems raised at the meeting.

It was an excellent conference, well organized and productive. I had interesting exchanges with the conference participants which can lead to more collaborative work on the conference subject and beyond. BIRS staff did an excellent job maintaining conference room and breaks. When there was an emergency, a cable problem with the projector, it was resolved in less than an hour. The food was excellent. Thank you.

Alexander Figotin Mathematics, University of California at Irvine

I thought the conference, in bringing together an incredibly diverse audience, ranging from engineering all the way to pure mathematics, was a great success. For someone close to the pure side it was amazing to see how Nevanlinna functions emerged in so many, totally different, circumstances. Independently from that: The food at cafeteria was just amazing!

Fritz Gesztesy Mathematics, Baylor University

Its a great place for math and to visit!

The high quality of the presentations was exceptional. I was especially appreciative of the interdisciplinary nature (combining mathematics with electromagnetics) of the workshop and expertise of the attendees. I returned home refreshed and excited about several new ideas and possible future directions to pursue. The beautiful peaceful venue enhanced the many in-depth interactions between the attendees.
