report in LMS Newsletter

Lectures: Erwan Faou (INRIA and ENS Paris)
Christian Lubich (Tuebingen)
Additional speakers: Claudia Wulff (Surrey)
Jonathan Sherratt (Heriot-Watt)
David Siska (Edinburgh)

Registration: h.gimperlein at

Jointly organized by Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh, the school aims to expose postgraduate students and interested faculty to some of the recent developments in the analysis of evolution equations and prepare them for research in these fields. Erwan Faou and Christian Lubich have agreed to give short courses on the analysis of stochastic evolution equations, respectively the long-time behavior of oscillatory Hamiltonian ODEs und PDEs and their numerical discretizations.
We have some funding for British postgraduate students, and in particular for students from Scottish universities.
There will be a registration fee of £ 20, which will be waived for funded postgraduate students.
Information about travel to Edinburgh and local accomodation can be found here.
