University of Leeds
Workshop on Variational Problems in Integrable Systems and Geometry

Friday 14th/Saturday 15th May, 2010


This is one of 4 meetings, jointly organised by the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot-Watt, Leeds, and Loughborough on Classical and Quantum Integrability ( CQI ).

These are partially funded by the London Mathematical Society , so there will be some support available to enable research students and post-docs to attend these meetings.

Abstracts (when available) are hyperlinked to the speakers below.
