We survey work on a class of nonlinear elliptic PDEs that was initiated by Moser. Methods from PDE, dynamical systems, and geometry set in the framework of the calculus of variations are used to construct a rich collection of solutions.

A fundamental problem in differential geometry is to characterize intrinsic metrics on a two-dimensional Riemannian manifold M2 which can be realized as isometric immersions into R3. This problem can be formulated as initial and/or boundary ...

We will introduce the behavior of zeros of linear combinations of zeta functions. Those linear combinations are related to the Riemann zeta function, the Eisenstein series, Periods, etc.
Limit computations in algebraic geometry and their complexity
Given a one-parameter family of algebraic varieties, its point-wise limit is usually too small whereas its algebraic limit is usually too big. I will introduce a notion of meaningful geometric limit and explain how it can be effectively comp...
Ward's identities and the related concept of the stress-energy tensor are standard tools in conformal field theory. I will present a mathematical overview of these concepts and outline relations between conformal field theory and Schramm-Loe...
Hamiltonian dynamics, Floer theory and symplectic topology
In this lecture, I will convey subtle interplay between dynamics of Hamiltonian flows and La-grangian intersection theory via the analytic theory of Floer homology in symplectic geometry. I will explain how Floer homology theory (`closed str...

Global result for multiple positive radial solutions of p-Laplacian system on exterior domain
Global result for multiple positive radial solutions of p-Laplacian system on exterior domain In this talk, we consider p-Laplacian systems with singular indefinite weights. Exploiting Amann type three solutions theorem for the singular syst...
국제수학자대회(ICM, International Congress of Mathematicians)는 1897년 쮜리히에서 처음 개최되었고, 매 4년마다 개최된다. 100여국 4천여 명 정도의 규모로 9일 동안 계속된다. 우리시대 최고의 수학자들이 참여하며, 필즈상(Fields Medal)을 개막식에서 ...
We will show that the averaging formula for Nielsen numbers holds for continuous maps on infra-nilmanifolds: Let M be an infra-nilmanifold with a holonomy group Phi and f : M -> M be a continuous map. Then N(f ) = 1/| Phi | Sum_{A in Phi} | ...
Fitch is a formal proof system recently gaining momentum in logic education due to its structural similarity to human reasoning. We introduce Fitch via its web-implementation at http://www.proofmood.com. Then we compare Fitch with more well-...
