Name: Free Boundary Problems and Related Topics
Location: Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, United Kingdom.
Free boundary problems are today considered as one of the most important directions in the mainstream of the analysis of partial differential equations (PDEs), with an abundance of applications in various sciences and real world problems. In the last two decades, various new ideas, techniques, and methods have been developed, and new important, challenging problems in physics, engineering, industry, finance, biology, and other areas have arisen. The topics of this programme are directed towards theory, numerics and applications. The study of free boundary problems is an extremely broad topic due to the abundance of applications. This breadth presents challenges and opportunities! Many problems treated by applied scientists and numerical analysts are not well known amongst theoretical people, and vice versa. The aim of this programme is to enhance links and unifying techniques by bringing together the relevant specialists.
