During a week period in Summer 2018, Research Center for Pure and Applied Mathematics (RCPAM) at Graduate School of Information Sciences (GSIS),Tohoku University invites highly regarded faculty from around the world to deliver graduate level courses in the mathematical sciences and their applications. This year our lecture series will focus on stochastic homogenization and the Workshop will focus on the applications of the homogenization theory. Our instructors and applicants come from a diverse set of countries, and our main goal is to broaden the education in the multicultural and international flavour of our School. Information about the last year can be found here.
