The workshop's aim is to introduce graduate and advanced undergraduate students to a variety of subjects of current research in Partial Differential Equations and Applied Mathematics.

The required prerequisites are familiarity with the basic material taught in undergraduate courses in mathematics.


Organizing committee:

Yehuda Pinchover, Koby Rubinstein, Lenya Ryzhik, Itai Shafrir and Gershon Wolansky




The  following six mini-courses will be given:


Henri Berestycki (EHESS Paris) and Lenya Ryzhik (Stanford University(

Reaction-diffusion equations and propagation phenomena


Leonid Berlyand (Pennsylvania State University)

Homogenization: the tale of scales and applications in active biosystems


Haim Brezis (Rutgers University and Technion)

Sobolev maps with values into the circle - analytical, geometrical and topological aspects


Gadi Fibich (Tel Aviv University(

The nonlinear Schrodinger equation: Theory and applications


Ross Pinsky (Technion(

Applying Stochastic Analysis to Elliptic and Parabolic Partial Differential Equations


Edriss S. Titi (Weizmann Institute and University of California at Irvine(
