The 18th Harmonic Analysis and PDE International conference 2019 at HIT







The Harmonic Analysis and PDE International conference at HIT is already a tradition. Founded by Prof. Eduard Yakubov, President of HIT, this is the 18th year that it is being held and this year it is also part of the opening ceremonies of HIT's 50th Jubilee. 

Professor Maz’yaThis year's conference is in honor of Vladimir Maz'ya Maz'ya - a Russian-born Swedish mathematician, hailed as "one of the most distinguished analysts of our time" and as "an outstanding mathematician of worldwide reputation", who strongly influenced the development of mathematical analysis and the theory of partial differential equations. He is the author or coauthor of some 40 monographs and 500 research papers.

Professor Maz’ya was the first recipient of the "Young Mathematician" prize of the Leningrad Mathematical Society (1962). Subsequent honors include the Humboldt Prize (1999), the Verdaguer Prize of the French Academy of Sciences (2003), the Celsius Gold Medal of the Royal Society of Sciences in Uppsala (2004), and the Senior Whitehead Prize of the London Mathematical Society (2009).


Prof. Maz’ya is an elected member of the Royal Society of Edinburgh (2000) and the Swedish Academy of Science (2002), a foreign member of the Georgian National Academy of Science (2013), and an Inaugural Fellow of the American Mathematical Society (2012).


This conference will provide a forum for discussions and exchange of new ideas, perspectives and recent developments in the broad field of Modern Analysis.
The topics to be addressed include (but not restricted to)

  • Complex and Harmonic Analysis
  • Partial Differential Equation
  • Operator Theory and Nonlinear Analysis
  • Quasiconformal Mappings and Geometry


The following institutions have contributed to the organization of this conference: Bar-Ilan University, Holon Institute of Technology, and Peoples' Friendship University of Russia (RUDN).
