The 2012 Spring Semester will focus on various topics in geometric analysis, spectral theory, partial differential equations and mathematical physics, including:

–Geometric PDE
–Spectral geometry
–Probabilistic methods in geometry and analysis
–Quantum many-body systems
–Geometry and dynamics of fluids.

The goal of the semester is to highlight some remarkable recent developments and to foster collaboration between researchers working in these diverse and yet interrelated areas of mathematics.
