American Institute of Mathematics, Palo Alto, California

organized by

Thomas Branson, Michael Eastwood, A. Rod Gover, and McKenzie Wang

Original Announcement

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.
