The field of Evolution Equations on Networks has received growing interest in recent years, with research topics and contributions ranging from Operator Theory to Theoretical Physics, from Computer Science to Neurobiology.
An interdisciplinary workshop will take place in Blaubeuren, near Ulm (southern Germany) from April 28 to May 1, 2006, mainly with the aim of bringing together researchers of different backgrounds (Mathematics, Physics, Computer Sciences, Biology) possibly working in similar fields. Topics to be covered in this meeting include
The meeting will start on Friday, 28.4.2006 at 3:30pm, and will end on Monday, 1.5.2006 at 4pm.
Five main mini-courses of two lectures each will be given:
"From random walks to quantum walks",
"Some spectral problems on 1-d networks and applications",
"Structure-dynamics relations in neuronal networks of the brain",
"Can one hear the shape of a graph?",
"The Laplacian on infinite networks".
Besides the invited talks, guests are encouraged to give a short communication of 25 minutes. Here you can find the program of the meeting. Additional time will be devoted to informal discussion. Here you can find an updated list of participants.
The meeting will be held at the Heinrich-Fabri Institute with support of the Graduate School "Mathematical Analysis of Evolution, Information and Complexity" of the Land Baden-Württemberg at the University of Ulm. Local expenses will be covered by the organization.
