Around scattering by obstacles and billiards

Thursday, March 29, 2012 - 6:00pm to Sunday, April 1, 2012 - 5:59pm

Scattering by obstacles:
There exist several groups of mathematicians working on problems of obstacle scattering. The range of considered problems and methods used to solve them vary from one group to another. The purpose of the workshop is to bring together these communities in order to communicate different approaches and the latest results. The talks will be aimed at non-specialists.

Billiards inside and outside bounded regions:
Our aim is, on the one hand, to bring together various groups and researchers working in the theory of mathematical billiards and, on the other hand, get them familiarized with new trends in the theory of wave scattering by obstacles.
