Workshop "Geometric Analysis",em parceria com o Institut Fourier (Grenoble)

IMPA, Rio de Janeiro, de 16/11 até 26/11

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together specialists from Brazil and from France, and their PhD students, to report on recent developments in geometric analysis and in particular in the domains of Ricci Flow and Conformal deformations and their applications to geometry. The workshop will take place at IMPA, and aims at developing the scientific interactions between Institut Fourier (Université de Grenoble) and the Brazilian community. It will consist of four mini-courses and some invited lectures. Ample time will be left for interactions and discussions. We hope to be able to provide financial support to some Ph.D. students.
