Mostly Maximum Principle

The Banff International Research Station will host the "Mostly Maximum Principle" workshop from April 2nd to April 7th, 2017.

The thematic focus of this 5-days workshop will be on recent developments and applications of advanced methods and techniques related to the Maximum Principle. The aim is gathering world leading experts as well as a number of junior researchers active in the broad field of nonlinear elliptic partial differential equations. We expect to welcome during the workshop the 2015 Abel's Prize recipient Prof. Louis Nirenberg, a universally recognized master of the field.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disc iplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineeri ng Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
