July 48, 2016 — Workshop at the CRM
Complex Boundary and Interface Problems: Theoretical models, Applications and Mathematical Challenges
Problems involving interfaces or boundaries are ubiquitous in mathematics and in models from physics and engineering. These problems are present in many applications such as fluid dynamics, electromagnetism, and generally multiphase and multiphysics systems in science and engineering. Much of the effort surrounding computation of boundary and computations of interface problems and the consideration of complex boundary now falls within different communities. Read more  

July 4 14, 2016 — The CRM Summer School at the Université laval
2016 CRM Summer School: Spectral Theory and Applications
The goal of the 2016 CRM Summer School in Quebec City is to prepare students for research involving spectral theory. The school will give an overview of a selection of topics from spectral theory, interpreted in a broad sense. It will cover topics from pure and applied mathematics, each of which will be presented in a 5hour minicourse by a leading expert.  Read more
