Numerical and Computational Aspects of Spectral Geometry

14 – 15 April 2011 

School of Mathematical Sciences

Loughborough University


Scientific Organizing Committee: E. Hunsicker, A. Strohmaier

This two day workshop will focus on areas around the computation of eigenvalues and resonances of non-trivial geometries such as planar domains in flat space but also compact and non-compact manifolds. Eigenvalue problems of this kind show up in different contexts such as number theory, quantum chaos, wave and inverse scattering, or simply in spectral geometry. The workshop aims at bringing together people from these different fields to discuss the most recent advances in both rigorous and non-rigorous numerical methods to compute the spectral data in different geometric situations.

Participants include: Timo Betcke (Reading), Jens Bolte (Royal Holloway), Lyonell Boulton (Edinburgh), Peter Buser (Lausanne), Simon Chandler-Wilde(Reading), Jo Dwyer (Bristol), Frederic Faure (Grenoble), Ilia Kamotski (Bath), Michael Levitin (Reading), Pat O'Mahony (Royal Holloway), Marco Marletta (Cardiff), Awodele Mojoyinola Kofoworola (Loughborough), Iannis Petridis (UCL), Roman Schubert (Bristol), Joerg Seiler (Loughborough), Eugene Shargorodsky (Kings College), Andreas Stroembergsson (Uppsala), Holger Then (Bristol), Ville Uski (Lougborough) (* to be confirmed)
