Tim Gowers (Cambridge) - Chair
Vitali Milman (Tel Aviv)
Terry Tao (UCLA)

The aim of this 10-day course is to instruct young mathematicians in topics involving combinatorial ideas in mathematical analysis. The conference takes the form of a series of courses (each course being made up of between 2 and 4 one-hour lectures), the courses being structured so that the more basic material is presented during the first week, leading to more advanced lectures in the second week.

The following themes will be addressed:
  • Combinatorial Number Theory
  • Combinatorial Methods in Convexity
  • Combinatorial Methods in Harmonic Analysis
  • Concentration of Measure
  • Geometric Inequalities
  • Ramsey Methods in Banach Spaces.
Supporting institutions and organizations
The meeting is supported by the European Commission, DG XII, Human Potential Programme, High Level Scientific Conferences HPCF-CT-1999-00213 and by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) of the UK. The Organisers hope to provide financial support for the majority of younger participants.
