Conference on Singular and Oscillatory Integrals

First announcement

January 7-11, 1999

Department of Mathematics

University of Wisconsin - Madison

The subject of Singular and Oscillatory Integrals is central to modern analysis. The methods and results have been applied in partial differential equations, integral geometry, complex analysis and mathematical physics. The conference will provide an opportunity for consolidation of recent progress and an easy exchange of new ideas.
The formal scientific activity of the conference will focus on a series of invited one hour talks by a distinguished list of mathematicians. The following have already agreed to speak:
There will also be opportunities for informal seminars and other communication. The participation of advanced graduate students and recent Ph.D.'s is strongly encouraged. There will be two instructional lectures by Anthony Carbery and James Wright targeted in particular at this group.

This conference will be dedicated to the mathematical contributions of Professor
Stephen Wainger
during his distinguished career at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The organizing committee consists of Anthony Carbery (University of Edinburgh), Alexander Nagel (UW Madison), Andreas Seeger (UW Madison) and James Wright (University of New South Wales).
