Bilateral French-Russian Seminar
ASYMPTOTIC METHODS IN SPECTRAL THEORY AND APPLICATIONS dedicated to the 70th birthday of V.S.Buslaev
June 30 - July 2, 2007 Saint-Petersburg, Russia
Co-organizers: F. Klopp and A.Fedotov
Summary: The workshop will bring together French and Russian specialists in the asymptotic theory of differential operators and PDE's. These themes are traditional strong points in both Russian and French mathematical schools. They include , in particular, the development and applications of the semi-classical, adiabatic and the homogenization asymptotic methods. The list of applications where one uses these methods is extremely large. During the conference, discussing this classical field, we will concentrate on the modern applications related for example to the spectral theory of periodic and quasi-periodic equations, the study of orthogonal polynomials, the study of Ginzburg Landau equation, the theory of spectral resonances, scattering theory for the homogenization problems.
The conference will contribute to the fruitful collaboration between the French and Russian groups which has begun after the conference hold in Euler Institute in 1993.
