**Henryk Woźniakowski WWW**

**Tokio Matsuyama**

Professor Matsuyama is interested in various questions concerning the theory of linear and nonlinear
hyperbolic partial differential equations. These includes

- Global well-posedness of the Kirchhoff equation

- Strichartz estimates for evolution equations

- Scattering for wave equation with nonlinear dissipative term in exterior domains

**Rodrigo Banuelos (USA) WWW**

Rodrigo Banuelos is Professor of Department of Mathematics at Purdue University. His research is at the interface of probability,
harmonic analysis, and spectral theory.

**Grigori Panasenko (France) WWW**

The central research direction is concearned with homogenization of partial derivatives equations and mathematical
modeling of heterogeneous media. From mathematical point of view it is an asymptotic study of PDEs with rapidly oscillating
coefficients or boundaries; from mechanical point of view this asymptotic analysis is applied
to the mathematical modeling of composite materials, lattice structures, industrial installations, frames,
heterogeneous plates and rods, porous media.

Professor of Applied Mathematics , Head of Department of Mathematics Imperial College London

Richard Craster is Professor of Applied Mathematics at Imperial College.
He has research interests across a broad spectrum of fluid mechanics and elasticity
(fracture mechanics, diffraction theory, wave phenomena, applied complex analysis,
Newtonian thin-layer theories, viscoplasticity, guided elastic waves, surfactant driven flows,
instability theory, pattern formation) and is involved in their applications in engineering and physics.
He also has interests in asymptotic theories for differential equations (WKBJ methods, Fuchsian equations)
and in the development of techniques to solve free boundary problems and conformal mapping theory.
