PRIN Project "Calcolo delle Variazioni"
in Metric Spaces
Trento, May 22-27, 2005
The aim of the school is to offer an outline
of the present state of research
concerning geometric measure theory on Carnot-Caratheodory groups and on more general metric spaces. Analysis and Geometry on these structures has been object of extensive research in the last few years, with applications ranging from degenerate elliptic equations to optimal control theory and differential geometry.
It is intention of the organizers to put together young researchers and well-known researchers active in the field and to encourage informal discussion on current research trends and developments in the area.
Young researchers are encouraged to participate: it is possible to support some of them upon request.
The following speakers have agreed to give short courses:
