Workshop on Methods in Nonlinear Analysis

Kennesaw State University Department of Mathematics will be hosting a mini-course research workshop on Methods in Nonlinear Analysis on November 14-15, 2020. Registration is free, but required. Before the workshop begins, all registered participants will receive an email to the Zoom meeting where all workshop activities will take place.

The workshop will be focused on methods (including topological and variational) for analyzing a diverse class of nonlinear partial differential equations, as well as methods of solutions of differential equations on quantum graphs.

The workshop will be composed of series of lectures delivered by the following three leading experts in a wide variety of methods in nonlinear analysis.

Speakers

Alfonso Castro is a leading expert on semilinear equations and their multiple solutions by using topological and variational methods. He is also an expert in inverse problems and water waves (solitons).

Evans Harrell is a leading expert on the mathematics of quantum mechanics and on problems connecting geometry to eigenvalues of differential equations. His recent contributions are in spectral theory on combinatorial and quantum graphs.

Ratnasingham Shivaji is a leading expert in nonlinear elliptic boundary value problems with nonlinearities of positone and semipositone types. His recent contributions are in the existence and uniqueness of solutions for a class of infinite semipositone 𝑝-Laplacian problems in a ball.
