2023 Brauer Lectures by Carlos Kenig
We are delighted to announce the return of the Brauer lectures within the Department of Mathematics at UNC. The 2023 lectures will be given by Carlos Kenig, Louis Block Distinguished Service Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Chicago.
Carlos earned his PhD at the University of Chicago in 1978 under the direction of Alberto Calderon. After holding positions at Princeton and Minnesota, he returned to the University of Chicago in 1985. Carlos’s recognitions include the Salem Prize (1984), the Bocher Prize (2008), three time ICM speaker (1986, 2002, 2010), elected member of the National Academy of Sciences (2014), and current President of the International Mathematical Union. Carlos is an expert in harmonic analysis and partial differential equations, and he is an excellent expositor and lecturer for both specialized and general audiences.
The lectures will take place February 6-8, 2023. And the titles of the talks are:
Lecture 1: Asymptotic simplification for solutions of nonlinear wave equations
- Lecture 2: Wave maps into the sphere
- Lecture 3: Soliton resolution and channels of energy
Stay tuned to the Events page for more specifics on the times and locations of the lectures.
