International Conference

New perspectives in the theory of function spaces and their applications


September 17-23, 2017, in Będlewo (Poland)

Second Announcement

The aim of the conference is to concentrate on new developments and results in the theory and its applications. The topics we have in mind are:
  • new smoothness and regularity concepts,
  • high-dimensional approximation and integration,
  • approximation of solutions to operator equations,
  • existence and regularity of solutions of (non)-linear PDE,
  • compactness and concentration phenomena in function spaces,
  • function spaces in complexity.
We intend to bring together many young and established scientists from various fields and from countries all over the world to present their latest results, to exchange new ideas and to step forward collaboration. The conference is co-organised and sponsored by the Stefan Banach International Mathematical Center, the Warsaw Center of Mathematics and Computer Science, the Friedrich Schiller Ujiversity Jena, and the Adam Mickiewicz University Poznań.
  1. Lectures
    The programme of the conference consists of invited lectures (50 minutes) and further talks given by the participants. The main lectures are the following (preliminary titles):

    • Monique Dauge (Université de Rennes 1/France)
      Convergence of asymptotic series in singular perturbation problems
    • Lars Diening (Universität Bielefeld/Germany)
      Nonlinear Calderon-Zygmund theory

    • Aicke Hinrichs (Johannes Kepler Universität Linz/Austria)
      Discrepancy and Integration in Function Spaces
    • Thomas Kühn (Universität Leipzig/Germany)
      Optimal approximation of smooth functions on high-dimensional domains

      A new approach to parabolic Morrey spaces for PDE’s
    • Pencho Petrushev (University of South Carolina/USA)
      Hardy spaces associated with non-negative self-adjoint operators
    • René L. Schilling (TU Dresden/Germany)
      Function Spaces as Probability Spaces
    • Andreas Seeger (University of Wisconsin, Madison/USA)
      Square functions with independent increments and Sobolev spaces on the real line
    • Winfried Sickel (Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena/Germany)
      Approximation of Mixed Order Sobolev Functions: Asymptotics, Preasymptotics, and d-Dependence
    • Hans Triebel (Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena/Germany)
      The use of function spaces in hydrodynamics and chemotaxis
    • Jan Vybíral (Charles University Prague/Czech Republic)
      From function spaces to machine learning
    • Dachun Yang (Beijing Normal University/China)
      Pointwise and Ball Average Characterizations of Function Spaces

    We received many further applications for talks and try to arrange the program as convenient as possible. But surely we cannot avoid parallel sessions taking place in the afternoons. Moreover, a small number of talks will be selected in advance and granted an extended length.

    We ask all participants (who have not yet done this) to send us titles & abstracts of their talks by June 15, 2017 (titles) and by August 15, 2017 (abstracts), at latest. There will also be an opportunity for ad hoc -seminars.

    The lecture rooms will be equipped with overhead projector, data projector + laptop, and a small board.

    You can have a look at the (preliminary) list of participants and (in due time) on the corresponding abstracts via our web-site.

  2. Venue
    The Conference will take place in the Mathematical Research and Conference Center in Będlewo situated in a beautiful countryside not far from Poznań.
  3. Registration
    You will receive a separate Email within the next days where we ask you to confirm and complete your details for the registration. As soon as you reply to this email to us npfsa2017@uni-jena.de your registration becomes binding and we shall reserve the accommodation according to your wishes then. You should reply to this confirmation message by

    June 15, 2017

    at latest.

    Please note, that we cannot guarantee that everyone who applied for a single room can have it, because the total number of rooms is restricted (and we shall have a lot of participants). So please read your confirmation message carefully ! We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you in advance.

  4. Lecture Notes
    We plan to offer all speakers of this conference the possibility to send us their material, slides etc. afterwards (preferably in pdf). Alternatively also a (closely linked) paper would be welcome.

    We collect all this material (or links to your personal web pages) and “publish” it on a special web page of this conference such that participants can download the files.

    You may contact us if you have any question.

  5. Costs & Payment
    The accommodation is arranged in single and double rooms with full board (buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner).

The deadline for transferring the money to our conference account is

    August 15, 2017.

    A reduced price of 280 € (single room) and 265 € (double room) applies to participants who pay

    before June 15, 2017.

    In any case it must be paid by bank transfer only and in advance, where bank charges have to be paid by the registrant.
