Participants will be required to prepare a 2h lecture on some topic in advance (during the summer), and submit a 4-6 page summary of their topic, at the latest by September 15 2009. The topics are listed here.
The Summer School is one of a series of Summer Schools funded by NSF grants. It is co-sponsored by DMS 0701302 and by the RTG grant Analysis and Applications at UCLA.
Sunday October 03. will be the arrival day. >From Monday to Friday the participants will give the lectures that they have prepared in advance. Departure will be after lunch on Friday October 08. Directly following the Summer School there will be a Special Session on Harmonic Analysis at the AMS Western Sectional meeting October 9-10 at UCLA, organizerd by the same organizing team as the summer school, see Program. The Special Session will focus on topics related to the Summer School. Participants are strongly encouraged to stay on for that meeting, which will be on Saturday and possibly Sunday morning.
