PIMS CRG Workshop on Geometric Analysis

  • Start Date: 05/18/2019
  • End Date: 05/19/2019

University of British Columbia


Recently there have been several new developments in geometry as a whole and particularly in geometric analysis. Due to new techniques in the area, and resurgence of old ones, there have been many breakthroughs on long standing problems. This workshop aims to have young researchers present their current research and showcase modern trends in geometric analysis. Some of the topics in focus are, but not limited to, minimal surfaces, geometric flows, eigenvalue problems and geometric PDEs.
