Recent Developments in the Theory of Elliptic PDE

Version française


Report by Ahmad El Soufi and François Murat

Objectives :

The Analysis of Partial Differential Equations one of the main fields of the today research in Mathematics. It concerns a great number of researchers from the Near and Middle East, even if there is no structure, institutional or not, which allows them to meet, exchange and collaborate. Organizing a CIMPA school on “Recent Developments in the Theory of Elliptic Partial Differential Equation is therefore a way to bring together researchers and graduate students from the region working in this field and to promote collaborations between them and mathematicians from Europe as well as to encourage the establishment of professional relationships and collaborative projects between mathematicians from the Middle East area.
