CONFERENCE

Geometric Evolution Problems and Related Topics

Tue, 15th Jan 2019 — Fri, 18th Jan 2019
Noah's On the Beach (Newcastle, NSW)

Geometric evolution problems form an important area of modern mathematical research with far-reaching applications within mathematics and beyond. This workshop will gather together many leading Australian researchers and some key international guests to discuss latest developments, build on existing collaborations and initiate new ones. Topics will include second and higher order geometric flow and semilinear and fully nonlinear elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations. Further information will appear on the conference webpage.

ABSTRACT

In this paper we present a Douglas–Rachford inspired teration scheme which can be applied to N-set convex feasibility problems in Hilbert space. Our main result is weak convergence of the method to a point whose nearest point projections onto each of the N sets coincide. In the case of affine subspaces, norm convergence is obtained.

MEMBERSHIP

Membership to CARMA offers many benefits and is available by invitation to all University of Newcastle academic staff. Associate membership, also by invitation, is available to external researchers and practitioners for three-year renewable terms. Associate members are expected to visit CARMA with some frequency, typically for a total of three to four weeks in a year, and to be involved in one or more ongoing research projects with CARMA members. CARMA is able to assist with the travel and living costs of such visits.
