Differential Geometry and Numerical Analysis

The UNESCO Chair in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at Birzeit University is organizing a Mathematics Summer School in “Differential Geometry and Numerical Analysis” to be held at Birzeit University, June 29 - July 4, 2013. This school is intended for graduate students and faculty members/researchers in Mathematics and related fields from all Palestinian universities.
The lecturers will be:Dr. Francis Lazarus (GIPSA-Lab, Grenoble) : Spline Curves and SurfacesDr. Romain Tessera (ENS-Lyon) : Curves and Surfaces in R3Dr. Boris Thibert (U. Joseph Fourier, Grenoble) : Discrete Curvatures Dr. Max Wardetzky (U. Goettingen) : Discrete LaplacianDr. Vincent Borrelli (U. Lyon I) : Convex Integration TheoryDr. Ahmed Khamayseh (PPU) : Curve and Surface Mesh Generation and Optimization.
There will also be talks by Professors Etienne Ghys and Cedric Villani (Fields Medal, 2010). Professor Edriss Titi will also be participating for the full duration of the school. Further details about the school will be announced later. Registration for the school should be done through your Department Chairman.
