Mathematical Institute, Oxford 17-19 May 2018
A conference has been organized in celebration of Professor Sir John Ball’s 70th birthday and in honour of his impressive mathematical contributions. The conference will provide a unique opportunity for researchers and current PhD students to learn about recent exciting developments in some of the areas most associated with John Ball’s name and most influenced by his work, both in the UK and internationally.
The Conference will focus on aspects of John Ball’s research interests and wider mathematical interests including Analysis of Nonlinear PDEs, General Aspects of Mathematical Research, Calculus of Variations, Liquid Crystals and Materials Science.
- Days 1 and 2 - Analysis of Nonlinear PDEs and General Aspects of Mathematical Research. In addition on day one there will be a public lecture by Sir Michael Atiyah. In the evening there will be a drinks reception in the upper library of Queen's College. On day two there will be a joint colloquium lecture by Shigefumi Mori. In the evening there will be a dinner at Balliol (optional).
- Day 3 - Calculus of Variations, Liquid Crystals and Materials Science - speakers include Duvan A. Henao Manrique, Tomonari Inamura, David Kinderlehrer, Barbara Niethammer, and Arghir Zarnescu with a Distinguished ARMA Lecture by Fanghua Lin.
