New Methods in Finsler Geometry

Monday, May 21, 2018 - 9:00am to Friday, May 25, 2018 - 1:00pm

http://crm.sns.it/event/415/

DATE: May, 21 -- May, 25, 2018

LOCATION: Centro di Ricerca Matematica Ennio de Giorgi, Pisa

CONCEPT:
In the last decade a number of problems in Finsler geometry
were solved by mathematicians, who do not consider Finsler geometry
as their main field of expertise. These scientists usually work in
Riemannian geometry, dynamical systems or in metric or convex geometry.
We want to bring together these mathematicians with specialists
in Finsler geometry to enable new cooperations.

The conference is a continuation of the conference with the same name which took place in Leipzig in July 2016.

ORGANIZERS: Marco Abate (Pisa), Alberto Abbondandolo (Bochum),
Vladimir S. Matveev (Jena), Zhongmin Shen (Indianapolis)
