The Erwin Schroedinger Institute for Mathematical Physics

Modern theory of wave equations

The Programme will focus mainly on the following aspects of the theory:

  1. Asymptotic behavior of waves on Lorentzian spacetimes and related resolvent estimates
  2. Scattering Theory, Resonances and Semi-classical Analysis 
  3. Distinguished parametrices and Hadamard states in connection with Quantum Field Theory
