LMS Invited Lecture Series 2017: Function Theory by Hilbert Space Methods

Tuesday, April 18, 2017 (All day) to Saturday, April 22, 2017 (All day)

The Society is pleased to announce Professor Jim Agler (UC San Diego) will visit Newcastle from 18-22 April 2017 to give a series of lectures on Function Theory by Hilbert Space Methods.

The topic will be a powerful machinery that has been developed in the last 60 years both to discover and to prove theorems about analytic functions in one and several complex variables through the construction of operators on Hilbert space. 

There will be supplementary lectures by:

  • Professor John McCarthy (Washington University in St. Louis, USA). 
  • Associate Professor Greg Knese (Washington University in St. Louis, USA). 
  • Assistant Professor Kelly Bickel (Bucknell University, Lewisburg, PA, USA). 

The annual Invited Lecturers Series aim to bring a distinguished overseas mathematician to the United Kingdom to present a small course of about ten lectures spread over a week. Each course of Invited Lectures is on a major field of current mathematical research, and is instructional in nature, being directed both at graduate students beginning research and at established mathematicians who wish to learn about a field outside their own research specialism.
