From May 25 to 27, 2011, we are organizing a conference on the applications of the operator theory to the study of boundary value problems arising in quantum mechanics and other areas. The boundary value problems are understood not only in the classical sence of PDE, but include also systems with singularities or structures composed of pieces of different nature and involving boundary conditions at the interaction set. We are planning to have three days of talks, May 24 being the arrival date and May 28 being the departure date. The aim of the conference is to bring together experts working on various aspects of the topic and to present the state of art to the local mathematical community. The conference is supported by the grant «Attractivity 2011» of the University Paris-Sud.

Conference site

The conference will take place at the Orsay campus of the University Paris-Sud situated in the Chevreuse Valley about 20 km to the south-west from Paris (location on the map). The campus has several dining halls and cafeterias. There are several hotels in the towns around the campus (Orsay, Bures-sur-Yvette, Gif-sur-Yvette, Les Ulis), see below.

There is a regular train service (a train approx. every 15 minutes from 05:30 to midnight) to Paris and the airports Charles de Gaulles and Orly by the line RER B. It takes about 30 minutes to get from the campus (RER B station "Orsay-Ville", the 5th transport zone) to Paris city center, the one way ticket costs 3.80 euro (january 2011). A night bus service is also available.

The talks will take place in the lecture hall «Salle de conférence Edgar Lederer» situated in the ground floor of the building 430 of the campus (campus map).
