The Mathematics Research Center was established in 2011 with support from the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences at University of Pittsburgh. The MRC operates within the Department of Mathematics and its research activities encompass a broad range of areas, including algebra, combinatorics, geometry, topology, analysis, applied analysis, mathematical biology, mathematical finance, numerical analysis, and scientific computing. Ongoing activities include semester themes, distinguished lecture series, workshops, miniconferences, research seminars, a visitor program, and a postdoctoral program.
Upcoming Workshops and Mini Conferences
Professor Manuel Ritoré?Lectures
Please join the Mathematics Department in welcoming Professor Manuel Ritoré. Professor Manuel Ritoré from the University of Granada is well known for a complete classification of double bubbles in the 3-dimensional space. A "standard double bubble'' is made of three pieces of round spheres, meeting along a common circle at an angle of 120 degrees. Manuel Ritoré?in a joint work with M. Hutchings, F. Morgan and A. Ross (Ann. Math. 2002) proved the celebrated double bubble conjecture which asserts that the unique perimeter-minimizing double bubble enclosing regions of prescribed volumes is a standard double bubble. Prof. Ritoré?will be giving 2 special lectures in Septmeber.?More?
Local and Nonlocal Trends in Analysis and Geometry
This workshop aims to bring together mathematicians that are currently working on local and nonlocal differential equations and applications, particularly to geometry. In addition to established senior scientist, we plan for the participation of young researchers, including graduate students. The extremely fruitful interplay between geometry and analysis is as old as the two subjects, and in recent years nonlocal techniques have been developed that promise further applications in Geometric Analysis. It is our goal to bring together experts in these different fields, to foster the exchange of ideas and open problems.
