Subject: Study Analysis and Geometry - 2012 Summer Program at Princeton

Dear Math Colleague/Department Administrator,

We would greatly appreciate if you would share (and post) this 
information with your undergraduate juniors and seniors as well as 
first-year graduate students! Thank you.

*************

SUMMER PROGRAM AT PRINCETON

Study Analysis and Geometry

Program Dates: July 23 - August 10, 2012
Application Deadline: April 15, 2012

A three-week intensive program for 30 advanced undergraduates and 
first-year graduate students consisting of two related courses in 
analysis and geometry. Each course will consist of nine lectures spanning 
1.5 weeks. Daily lectures will be complemented by review and problem sessions.

On-campus accommodations and meal allowance provided from Sunday, July 22 
(check-in) through Saturday, August 11 (check-out).

Travel reimbursement provided up to $500. (Only original receipts will 
be accepted.)

Early and/or extended stays are not permitted.

Courses

Harmonic Analysis: Some basic operators and the role of curvature
(A. Israel, Courant Institute/NYU and E. Stein, Princeton University)

Week 1 into Week 2: Monday, July 23 - Wednesday, August 1

The course provides and introduction to Fourier transform, Lp spaces, 
and several essential operators, such as the Hardy-Littlewood maximal 
function, fractional integrals, and singular integrals. This will be 
followed by a presentation of such topics as:
1. The Radon and X-ray transform
2. Spherical averaging operators and the corresponding maximal functions
3. Generalizations of the above where "non-vanishing" curvature plays a role
4. Restriction theorems

Nonlinear Evolution Equations
(A. Ionescu and S. Klainerman, Princeton University)

Week 2 into Week 3: Wednesday, August 1 - Friday, August 10

The course provides an introduction to applications of Fourier analysis 
to the study of certain nonlinear evolution equations. The course will 
cover the following topics:
1. Restriction theorems, \Lambda(p) problems, Strichartz estimates
2. Applications to nonlinear Schroedinger equations
3. Geometric wave equations and classical field theory
4. Applications to Yang-Mills and wave maps in the Minkowski space
