Microlocal analysis is an extremely active contemporary research topic. Although initially developed as a tool to solve linear partial differential equations, its influence is increasingly felt in a diverse range of fields, as illustrated for example by Hintz and Vasy’s recent proof of global nonlinear stability of the Kerr-de Sitter family of spacetimes in general relativity, or the recent applications of microlocal analysis to dynamical systems, led by advances due to Faure, Tsujii, Dyatlov, Zworski, and many others.
This workshop will bring together many of the leading international players to present the latest developments, and aims to provide the best possible environment for participants to plan new collaborations and new research directions.

Graduate minicourse in Microlocal Analysis
Venue: Australian National University, Canberra
Date: 16 - 17 March, 2018
There will be a 2 day graduate minicourse in Microlocal Analysis run at ANU on Friday March 16 and Saturday March 17, immediately before the Microlocal Analysis workshop at Murramarang Resort. This is intended for PhD students and postdocs in related areas (such as harmonic analysis or PDE), but are not currently working in microlocal analysis. The goal of the workshop is to acquaint the participants with basic concepts and techniques in microlocal analysis, sufficient for them to benefit from the talks in the Murramarang workshop. We plan to give 4 hours of lectures on each day of the minicourse.
This event is sponsored by the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI). AMSI allocates a travel allowance annually to each of its member universities (for list of members, see http://amsi.org.au/membership/members/). Students or early career researchers from AMSI member universities without access to a suitable research grant or other source of funding may apply to the Head of Mathematical Sciences for subsidy of travel and accommodation out of the departmental travel allowance.
