BGSMath Spring Colloquium 2022
🕒 12:00 and 15:30 / Central European Time (CET)
Xavier Tolsa (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona-CRM)
On the occasion of the Kick-Off Meeting for the Maria de Maeztu distinction awarded to Centre de Recerca Matemàtica, Helen M. Byrne from the University of Oxford and Xavier Tolsa from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona will be giving two scientific talks. The topics and the zoom link will be posted soon.
Helen M. Byrne is a professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Oxford. Her work considers mathematical models to describe biomedical systems. She also serves as Director of Equality and Diversity in the Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences (MPLS) Division. She was awarded the 2019 Society for Mathematical Biology Leah Edelstein-Keshet Prize, being appointed a fellow of the society in 2021. Byrne is an investigator on the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council Cyclops Healthcare Network as well as the University of Liverpool 3D BioNet.
Xavier Tolsa is a professor at the Autonomous University of Barcelona and at the the Catalan Institute for Advanced Scientific Studies (ICREA). Tolsa does research on harmonic analysis (Calderón-Zygmund theory), complex analysis, geometric measure theory, and potential theory. Specifically, he is known for his research on analytic capacity and removable sets. He solved the problem of A. G. Vitushkin about the semi-additivity of analytic capacity. This enabled him to solve an even older problem of Paul Painlevé on the geometric characterization of removable sets.
