The mini-symposium will be delivered as a virtual event so as the participants will be able to attend it from their desktops. This event is part of ICNAAM 2014, the 12TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF NUMERICAL ANALYSIS AND APPLIED MATHEMATICS http://www.icnaam.org/ to be held in Rhodes, Greece, at the Rodos Palace Hotel, 22-28 September 2014.
http://www.icnaam.org/sessions_minisymposia.htm. This ""Invariants associated with highly nonlinear optical Schrödinger equations" mini-symposium is No86.
The mini-symposium deals with highly nonlinear optical Schrödinger equations (beyond the optical cubic-quintic Schrödinger equation), whose solutions are temporal solitary waves.
·Invariants associated with the optical cubic-quintic Schrödinger equation, whose solutions are temporal solitary waves.
·Variational techniques related to the above invariants.
·Operator formalisms relative to the optical cubic-quintic Schrödinger equation and to the associated invariants.

The workshop is devoted to the following problem of fundamental importance throughout science and engineering: how to approximate, integrate, or optimize multivariate functions.
The breakthroughs demanded by high dimensional problems may be at hand. Good methods of approximation arise as solutions of optimization problems over certain function classes that are now well understood in small and modesty large dimensions.

The aim of the school is to bring together 20/30 young researchers in a cosy contest to show them both the new current ideas on the classification of Fano manifolds coming from the theory of mirror symmetry, and the present state of the theory of Fano varieties after the breakthrough work by Shigefumi Mori.

One of the first results in Additive Combinatorics is the so-called Freiman-Ruzsa Theorem, which states that a set with small sumset is in fact a subset of a generalized arithmetic progression. This theorem has emerged as an important cornerstone of the field, and many related questions are still unknown.
==Topics and lecturers==
Week 1: Giorgis Petridis (University of Rochester): Classical and new results in Additive Combinatorics
6 - 10 October 2014
Week 2: Julia Wolf (University of Bristol): Analytic techniques in Additive Combinatorics
13 - 16 October 2014
Week 3: Tomasz Schoen (Adam Mickiewicz University): The Polynomial Freiman-Ruzsa Conjecture

The event will gather experts in the noncommutative geometry community, with Kasparov's bivariant K-theory as the unifying theme. A focal point of the workshop will be the Baum-Connes conjecture, which for three decades has been a central problem in this field, bringing together geometry, topology and analysis. This has lead to both new fundamental ideas as well as interactions with other fields of mathematics. Notable applications encompass index theory, mathematical physics, dynamical systems and the classification of C*-algebras.

Multiphase flow phenomena are frequently encountered in industry in the traditional fields of the chemical, nuclear and oil industry. Multiphase flow encompasses a number of subjects, from nearly homogeneous flow, as developed in long transport lines of gas-liquid-solid mixtures or in short in-plant circuits, to completely separated flows, as in the case of nuclear or gas fluidised reactors. The scientific background of multiphase flow technology is composite and includes fluid mechanics, transport phenomena, equipment design and other fundamentals, such as surface thermodynamics and sprays.
The Workshop focuses on:
Oil & Gas Industry
Thermohydraulics for Nuclear Energy
Chemical and petrochemical industry
Rarefied mixture of gases
Sloshing of liquids in tanks
Shock attenuation by aqueous foams.

In the framework of the special trimester "Geometric and non-commutative methods in functional analysis" at Université Franche-Comté (Besançon, France) we organize this "Autumn school on Nonlinear geometry of Banach spaces and applications" in the nearby village of Métabief in Jura mountains. The school will propose 5 short courses delivered by mathematicians working in this domain.

Non-Hermitean random matrices introduced by Jean Ginibre nearly half a century ago have made a long way from oblivion to a flourishing research field. Born out of mathematical curiosity and lacking immediate applications at the time, non-Hermitean random matrix models have appeared in various disciplines and systems – quantum chaology and mathematical statistics, statistical and condensed matter physics, quantum chromodynamics and the theory of random functions – continuing to challenge both mathematical and theoretical physicists.

Discrepancy theory deals with the problem of distributing points uniformly over some geometric object and evaluating the inevitably arising errors. The theory was ignited by such famous early results as Herman Weyl's equidistribution theorem and Klaus Roth's theorem on the irregularities of point distributions.
Université de Franche-Comté, Besançon, France
In the framework of the special trimester "Geometric and non-commutative methods in functional analysis" at Université de Franche-Comté (Besançon, France) we organize this "Conference on Geometric Functional Analysis and its Applications" in order to bring together researchers and students with common interest in this field.
This is bringing together young and some venerable researchers in above areas in order to get acquainted, to communicate and to understand what directions are actual and perspective. The word "young" in the title means a general direction of the conference but doesn't mean any age limitations for participants.
The conference is named by an outstanding mathematician, talented pedagogue and organizer, Academician of NAS of Ukraine Yaroslav Borisovich Lopatinskii who was a founder of both the Department of Differential Equations in Donetsk National University and the Department of Partial Differential Equations in the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics of NAS of Ukraine. The forthcoming conference continues the series dedicated to the 100-th anniversary from the day of Yaroslav Borisovich Lopatinskii birth (started from December, 2006). The main focus of the conference will be in areas:
Kuwait University, Kuwait City, Kuwait
The Conference on Mathematics and its Applications-2014 (CMA-2014) is broad-based spanning Algebra, Analysis, Discrete Mathematics, and Inverse Problems and Imaging. The aim is to highlight the latest advances in different areas of mathematics and emphasis their applications to other disciplines.
The conference will gather renowned scholars in mathematics from around the world and provide a forum to exchange ideas and discuss research findings, as well as to form new inter-disciplinary connections among the participants.
University of Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province, Papua New Guinea
