Geometric and Physical aspects of Trudinger-Moser type inequalities

27 June - 01 July 2016

2016 EWM-EMS Summer School





Hajer Bahouri, Université Paris-Est Créteil Val-de-Marne
Sun-Yung Alice Chang, Princeton University
Gabriella Tarantello, Università di Roma Tor Vergata


Brief Description

Starting from the state of art, the school aims at promoting new directions in sharp limiting inequalities of Trudinger-Moser type and applications to problems arising from Geometry and Physics. Three internationally renowned experts will present three courses focusing on this topic, along with additional talks given by some of the participants and a poster session. These supplementary research activities are meant to complement the main courses and motivate further discussions among participants. The provisional titles of the main courses are the following
- Study of Sobolev embedding in Orlicz spaces and applications to nonlinear PDE by Hajer Bahouri
- Application of Moser-Trudinger inequalities in conformal geometry by Sun-Yung Alice Chang
- The role of singular Liouville systems in the study of non-abelian Chern-Simons vortices by Gabriella Tarantello
PhD-students, postdocs and other young researchers will have the opportunity to get up to date with new research advances or enter this fascinating field of research. The school will encourage the participation of women.
