We are excited to announce the continuation of our PDE mini-schools.  Each mini-school features 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 “satellite” talks are given by additional invited participants, often the principal speaker’s graduate students, postdocs, or young collaborators. For information on our previous mini-school, check out the link: 2023 Mini-School.

Our upcoming mini-school “Recent developments in wave turbulence theory” will take place April 5-6, 2024. There will be three lectures given by Gigliola Staffilani (MIT). The mini-school is supported by NSF RTG grant “Partial Differential Equations on Manifolds” NSF DMS 2135998, and it is being organized by Yaiza Canzani, Casey Rodriguez, and James Rowan. For any questions please write to
