Winter School & Workshop Wisla 20-21 [ONLINE!]

Online
January 25 - February 5, 2021

The topic of the forthcoming school:
Groups, invariants, integrals, and moving frames.

The goal of the forthcoming school is to present recent results in differential geometry related to nonlinear PDEs, mathematical physics, and moving frames.

The lectures will focus on Lie groups and pseudogroups which play an important role in these fields, and we will discuss different ways of studying their orbit spaces. Two main topics are Poisson algebras and differential invariants. The theory will be illustrated by examples from algebraic and differential geometry, fluid dynamics, and thermodynamics.

The third main topic is moving frames. The lectures will center on the basic theory, computational techniques, and applications of the new, equivariant approach to the method of moving frames, concentrating one the case of finite-dimensional Lie group actions.  The methods will be illustrated by examples chosen from an ever-expanding range of applications, including differential geometry, partial differential equations, calculus of variations, geometric flows, integrable systems, classical invariant theory, numerical analysis, and image processing including the automatic reassembly of broken objects: jigsaw puzzles, egg shells, and bone fragments.

The school will provide young researchers with an opportunity to interact with their colleagues and well-known researchers in the field. Selected materials of the school and workshop will be published by Springer Nature.

The speakers will be:

Valentin Lychagin  (University of Tromsø, Norway)
Differential contra algebraic invariants.

Peter J. Olver (University of Minnesota, USA)
The Theory and Applications of Moving Frames.

Volodya Roubtsov  (University of Angers, France)
Poisson algebras.

Eivind Schneider  (University of Hradec Králové, Czech Republic)
Differential invariants of Lie pseudogroups.

Materials of the school and workshop will be published by Springer Nature. The school will provide young researchers with an opportunity to interact with their colleagues and well-known researchers in the field:
- each participant could make a talk about recent research or present a poster
- each participant will get independent and constructive feedback on her/his current research and future research directions
- a decision about including participantwork to the book will be made based on experts feedback
- each participant will also be given an opportunity to improve her/his work during the school
