Original Announcement

This workshop will focus on the interplay between several topics related to optimal discrete configurations for Riesz potentials: linear programming techniques, Coulomb gases techniques, classical analysis and geometric measure theory techniques. Based on recent very exciting new results in the field, we will tackle several important problems, such as:
