Inaugural Chicago Summer School In Analysis

June 17 - July 11, 2014

This summer school consists in three parts. In the period of June 16th to June 27th there will be minicourses aimed at preparing undergraduate students and starting graduate students to enter the field of analysis. In the period of June 30th to July 11th, there will be minicourses aimed at introducing graduate students and postdocs to current topics in analysis and PDE. The third component of this summer school is the intensive study program Adventures in Analysis .

Organizers: M. Csornyei, C. Kenig, R. Fefferman, W. Schlag, L. Silvestre, P. Souganidis.

Lodging information:

We have some accomodation available at the max P dorm in the University of Chicago main campus.

If you are interested in participating, please fill the registration form.
