This is our second and apparently final announcement. You are all very welcome! Michael Cwikel, Simeon Reich and Alexander Zaslavski ============================================================================ FUNCTIONAL ANALYSIS A CONFERENCE IN HONOUR OF EVGENIY PUSTYLNIK May 18-19, 2011 Poster: <http://www.math.technion.ac.il/cms/decade_2011-2020/year_2010-2011/Functional-Analysis/> PROGRAM All lectures will be held in Room 232 of the Amado Building, Technion. Abstracts can be viewed at <http://www.math.technion.ac.il/~mcwikel/AbstractsEP511.pdf> The program is below and also at <http://www.math.technion.ac.il/~mcwikel/ProgramEP511.pdf> Wednesday 18 May. 13:30-14:20 Informal "pre-gathering" and coffee. 14:20-14:40 Welcome, and maybe a bit more coffee etc. (Faculty Lounge, Level 8, Amado Building) 14:40-15:30 Boris Paneah. On the general theory of linear functional operators. New problems and new methods. 15:40-16:30 Alexander Zaslavski. Inexact powers and infinite products of nonlinear operators. 16:40-17:30 Yuri Brudnyi, Lipschitz extension constants. At this stage Professor Brudnyi is not entirely certain that he will be available to give this lecture. If he has to cancel it, then it will be replaced by a 30 minute lecture by Michael Cwikel: A simple(?) geometric question with deep consequences for BMO functions. Thursday 19 May. 9:30-10:20 Jonathan Arazy. The Boundedness and the Spectrum of Averaging Operators on L^{p}(0,\infty). 10:20-11:00 Coffee. (Faculty Lounge) 11:00-12:00 Joaquim Martin. Symmetrization inequalities for Sobolev functions on Probability Metric Spaces. 12:00-13:30 Lunch. 13:30-14:20 Some remarks, by several speakers, about Evgeniy, our friend and our colleague, including some (all too brief) descriptions of some of his many contributions to many fields. 14:30-15:30 Teresa Signes. Real interpolation with symmetric spaces and slowly varying functions. 15:30-16:00 Coffee. (Faculty Lounge) 16:00-16:50 Pavel Shvartsman. The Sobolev-Poincare inequality and extensions of Sobolev functions. 16:50-17:40 Leonid Zelenko. Smoothness and holomorphy of continuous operator functions. 17:40-17:45 Closing Remarks. --------------------------------------------------------- Technion Math.
