Conference on Singular and Oscillatory Integrals
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.
