Conformal structure in geometry, analysis, and physics
August 12 to August 16, 2003
American Institute of Mathematics,
Palo Alto, California
A. Rod Gover,
and McKenzie Wang
This workshop This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to
differential invariants of conformal and analogous structures,
and their applications in Geometric Analysis and Physics.
This workshop will bring together researchers in Differential
Geometry, Representation Theory, Geometric Analysis, and Mathematical
Physics. We especially hope to advance the understanding of the
Q-curvature, and to set an agenda for communication among geometers,
analysts, and physicists.
