Thematic programs 2020

Each calendar year Leonhard Euler International Mathematical Institute hosts thematic programs gathering recognized experts in the respective fields as well as early career researchers and postdocs to carry out investigations with a special emphasis on collaborative activities. Every program features a summer school as well as one or two conferences or workshops. The stays of the visitors and speakers are fully or partially financially covered by the Institute.

The themes of the programs are open to suggestion via the application process. The selection criteria for accepting a proposal are its scientific strength and the degree to which the program would benefit mathematical research and post-graduate training in the Russian Federation.

Spectral Theory and Mathematical Physics

rescheduled to 2021 due to COVID-19 pandemic

Organizers:

Alexander Fedotov, SPbU
Nikolai Filonov, PDMI
Alexander Its, IUPUI and SPbU
Alexander Sobolev, University College London
Tatiana Suslina, SPbU
Dmitri Yafaev, University of Rennes 1 and SPbU

The program is devoted to spectral theory and its applications. The spectral theory is one of the domains where the Saint Petersburg mathematical school is traditionally very strong, the names of L.D. Faddeev, M.S. Birman and V.S. Buslaev are among the names of the world-known leaders in the field.

The following activities will be organized during the program:

New Trends in Mathematical Stochastics

rescheduled to 2021 due to COVID-19 pandemic

Organizers:

Ildar Ibragimov, PDMI
Yana Belopolskaya, SPbUACE
Andrei Borodin, PDMI
Yury Davydov, SPbU
Mikhail Lifshits, SPbU
Yakov Nikitin, SPbU
Maria Platonova, PDMI and SPbU
Natalia Smorodina, PDMI and SPbU
Yuri Yakubovich, SPbU
Andrei Zaitsev, PDMI
Dmitry Zaporozhets, PDMI

The general idea of the program is to strengthen interactions between experts and young researchers working in the areas of probability theory, stochastic processes and their applications. Visits of leading scientists in these areas will serve to enrich the mathematical education in St. Petersburg and to develop possibilities for future collaboration.
