Modern Maximal Monotone Operator Theory: From Nonsmooth Optimization to Differential Inclusions

The programme aims to bring together leading researchers to synthesize advances in areas related to the theory of monotone operators, and explore new directions and applications. Having its historical roots in the area of PDEs, the theory of monotone operators has flourished in functional and numerical analysis with the goal of answering deep theoretical questions on one hand and, on the other hand, with a focus on the development of algorithms. Monotone operators stand at the junction between the study of variational problems, with particular instances related to optimization, game theory and control, on one side, and partial differential equations or quasi-variational inequalities on the other. The expected results catalyzed through this thematic programme have the potential to improve our understanding, industrial processes and ultimately our lives. Special focus of this thematic programme is also given to train the next generation of scientists with an awareness of the interconnections between these important areas.

 

The programme contains two main Workshops and several Lecture Series:
