WOMASY – Geometric and Harmonic Analysis meets PDE

 In Workshop reports

Macquarie University, 17 February 2015

The WOMASY group was established by the geometric analysis group at the University of Wollongong; the harmonic analysis group at Macquarie University and the nonlinear analysis group at the University of Sydney. In March 2015, the group expanded to included the University of Newcastle, the Australian National University and the University of New South Wales and changed it’s name to the Analysis and PDE group.

The group has two fundamental aims: firstly to meet twice a year to report on research and foster contacts between related research groups in the wider Sydney region and secondly, to give early career researchers the opportunity to speak to a wider audience. These aims increase the research activity between the three participating universities in Sydney and to increase the chance of new job offers for early career researchers.

The 2015 event featured a wide range of topics including:

  • A simplified approach to the regularising effect of nonlinear semigroups (Dr Daniel Hauber, the University of Sydney)
  • Uniqueness for the biharmonic heat flow on Rn (Dr Glen Wheeler, University of Wollongong)
  • Singular integrals associated with zygmund dilations (Dr Ji Li, Macquarie University)
  • Partial differential equations arising in light reflection and optimisation (Special speaker: Professor Xu-Jia Wang, Australian National University)
  • Fully nonlinear curvature flow of axially symmetric hypersurfaces (Fatemah Mofarreh, PhD Student, University of Wollongong)
  • Non-linear elliptic equations with isolated singularities (Dr Florica Cirstea, The University of Sydney)
