Geometric Control Theory and Analysis on Metric Structures
Month: August 2014
Date: August 3--8
Name: Geometric Control Theory and Analysis on Metric Structures
Location: The Kumutkan Recreation Centre, Lake Baikal, Russia.
The conference is organized by the Geometric Control Theory Laboratory of the Sobolev Institute of Mathematics (SB RAS) in the frame of the grant "Geometric Control Theory and Analysis on Metric Structures". It is a satellite meeting to ICM 2014. Geometric control theory naturally describes mathematical models of various applied problems, mainly in physics, technology and economics. Arising complicated problems lead to necessity of creation of new fundamental concepts of (sub)riemannian geometry and geometric analysis, and inventing new methods to solve them.
The aim of the event is to bring researchers, working in the mentioned and related domains, to report recent progress and discuss further challenging problems in the fields with the purpose to formulate them for young participants also. As a satellite meeting to ICM2014 we want to provide an opportunity for both experts and young researchers from different countries to discuss their results and to start new collaborations.
