We are excited to announce the continuation of our PDE mini-schools.  Each school will feature a series of three to four lectures by a principal speaker.  The talks are tailored to an audience of graduate students and are intended to introduce the audience to a modern and important class of research problems.   Complementary talks will be given by additional invited participants, often the principal speaker’s graduate students, postdocs, or young collaborators.


Our upcoming mini-school “Geometric singular analysis and black holes” will take place on March 24-26, 2023. There will be four lectures taught by Peter Hintz (ETH).

We will also have three satellite talks by

The mini-school is supported by NSF RTG grant “Partial Differential Equations on Manifolds”. NSF DMS 2135998.

The meeting is organized by Yaiza Canzani and Jian Wang. For any questions please write to
