Periodic and Ergodic Spectral Problems
Month: January 2015
Date: January 5--June 26
Name: Periodic and Ergodic Spectral Problems
Location: Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Cambridge, United Kingdom.
The main objective of the programme is to bring together specialists in three major themes: periodic, almost-periodic, and random operators, to discuss recent developments and deep connections between the methods intrinsic for each of these research areas. Operators on manifolds or graphs and more general ergodic operators will also be considered, as well as problems that lie at the interface of the main topics (e.g. "sheared" periodic operators), and applications in other areas of mathematics (e.g. geometry). At the beginning of the programme, there will be a two-week long instructional conference with six mini-courses of about ten lectures each, which will be designed for students and non-specialists. Further there will be three workshops evenly spread over the period of the programme to cover more advanced results, each centred on one of the main themes. Several workshops will take place during the programme. For full details please see
