There will be an active program of scientific activities, seminars and workshops throughout the March 11 - June 14, 2013 period and core participants will be in residence at IPAM continuously for these fourteen weeks. The program will open with tutorials, and will be punctuated by four major workshops and a culminating workshop at UCLA's Lake Arrowhead Conference Center. Several distinguished senior scientists will be in residence for the entire period. Between the workshops there will be a program of activities involving the long-term and short-term participants, as well as visitors.

Scientific Overview

Within mathematics, as within science in general, there is a need for greater communication between workers from different research specialties. The purpose of this program is to promote the interaction between two core areas of mathematics---analysis and geometry.

Sophisticated methods have been developed in complex analysis, harmonic analysis, partial differential equations, and other parts of analysis; many of these analytic techniques have found applications in geometry. However, research in analysis is often driven by intrinsic motives rather than by potential applications to other parts of mathematics. Geometers can give analysts new perspectives and focus for their research.

On the other hand, analysts often use ideas and tricks that are well-known to themselves, but mysteries to researchers in other areas; so geometers can benefit from an exchange of ideas with analysts by becoming more familiar with the powerful tools of their field.

Such fruitful interactions should not be left to serendipity. This program is intended to enhance communications between analysts and geometers by focusing on recent developments on the borderline of these subjects.

This long program will establish an interdisciplinary forum for junior and senior mathematical researchers working in the core areas geometry and analysis. The intent is to create a dialogue amongst participants so that powerful tools and new developments can be shared across disciplines and transported from one area to the other. This synergistic activity is expected to foster new research directions and collaborative research efforts amongst participants.

Full and partial support for long-term participants is available, and those interested are encouraged to fill out an online application at the bottom of this page. Support for individual workshops will also be available, and may be applied for through the online application for each workshop. We are especially interested in applicants who are interested in becoming core participants and participating in the entire program (March 11 - June 14, 2013), but give consideration to applications for shorter periods. Funding for participants is available at all academic levels, though recent PhD's, graduate students, and researchers in the early stages of their career are especially encouraged to apply.

Encouraging the careers of women and minority mathematicians and scientists is an important component of IPAM's mission and we welcome their applications.
