Math department hosts 19th Prairie Analysis Seminar

Submitted by Virginia Naibo

The 19th Prairie Analysis Seminar will be hosted by K-State's mathematics department on Nov. 3-4, featuring leading experts in partial differential equations and harmonic analysis.

Ovidiu Savin of Columbia University will give two one-hour talks. Donatella Danielli of Arizona State University and Irina Mitrea of Temple University will each give one-hour talks. Savin's lectures will focus on "Free boundary problems with interacting boundaries." Danielli will speak about "Obstacle problems for fractional powers of the Laplacian," and Mitrea will talk about "The Radon-Carleman Problem in Uniformly Rectifiable Domains."

There will also be a poster session and a number of shorter talks presented by mathematicians in early stages of their careers.

The conference is organized by K-State Professors Virginia Naibo and Diego Maldonado, along with University of Kansas Professors Dionyssis Mantzavinos and Shuanglin Shao.

The seminar is part of a sequence of yearly analysis meetings organized each fall by the departments of mathematics at Kansas State University and the University of Kansas. The conference is supported by the National Science Foundation and by the mathematics department at K-State through the William J. Spencer Endowment. It is held in cooperation with the Association for Women in Mathematics and supports the Statements on Diversity, Inclusion and Welcoming Environment of the Association for Women in Mathematics.
