Report on 15th Workshop - Wednesday, 18 July 2012

The 15th Internatrional Workshop for Young Mathmaticians has already come to an end. We've hosted 118 participants from Poland and from abroad. Our invitation was accepted by notable specialists:

Gilles Cassier (Université de Lyon I),
Piotr Sołtan (Uniwersytet Warszawski),
Ryszard Szwarc (Uniwersytet Wrocławski i Uniwersytet Opolski),
László Zsidó (Università degli Studi di Roma "Tor Vergata").

The Scientific Commitee consisted of the workers of Jagiellonian University:

Jan Stochel,
Franciszek H. Szafraniec,
Piotr Niemiec.

We would like to express our cordial thanks to our Guests and the Scientific Commitee for sharing their knowledge and experience.

The venue of the Workshop has been the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Robotics of the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków. The Workshop schedule was full of events. The participants had an opportunity to listen to a total amount of almost a thousand minutes of talks.

We would like to thank all the participants who gave lectures during the Workshop:

Gilles Cassier, Dilation curve associated with an operator and its applications
Piotr Sołtan, Quantum families of maps
Ryszard Szwarc, Orthogonal polynomials and symmetric linear operators
László Zsidó, Operator theoretical methods for dynamical systems

Piotr Niemiec, Certain aspects of functional calculus for bounded normal operators
Franciszek H. Szafraniec, Thirty years of unbounded subnormality in Kraków

Krzysztof Drachal, Simplicity and depth of the Banach fixed-point theorem
Dariusz Dudzik, Kakutani - Markov fixed point theorem
Mikołaj Frączyk, Structure of point spectra of bounded linear operators on Banach space
Joanna Garbulińska, On the Gurarii space

Magdalena Nowak, Application of the Hahn-Banach theorem in welfare economics
Piotr Pokora, Linear Maps on Operator Spaces Preserving Spectrum and Numerical Range
Łukasz Rzepnicki, Riesz-spectral operators
Michał Świętek, A note on Gowers’ Dichotomy theorem
Elwira Wawreniuk, Convex conjugate of the spectral exponent of analytic functions of weighted composition operators

In addition to that, two sessions were held - an open problem session (moderated by Professor Jan Stochel) and a poster session.

We would also like to thank all the poster authors:

Jowita Antoniuk i Monika Kosiorek, Existence of local solutions of some second-order nonlinear boundary value problem
Hasan Alkanjo, Extended spectrum of operators
Maciej Brzeski i Piotr Wójcik, Bases in Banach spaces
Tomasz Dedyk i Katarzyna Koźmin, Norm of a linear operator T : Rn → Rm

Anna Szumowicz, Different conditions for reflexivity
Martha Ubik, Antiunitary Operators
Michał Żurawski, Banach's theorem on inverse mapping and its generalizations

Beside the scientific events, several social meetings took place. Some of these have already become an annual tradition of our Workshop. Some of the most notable were the board games' evening, which, as usual, attracted scores of people to the nooks of the Faculty of Physics Astronomy and Applied Computer Science of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. On Tuesday we spent an evening bowling and playing billiards in the Fantasy Park Plaza. Another traditional attraction was Kraków sightseeing. This year's participants could choose from 5 trips:

This year's novelty was a yoga workshop.
After a 2 year break we reverted to organizing an evening in theatre. We watched a spectacle entitled "Fogg. Autobiography in 21 songs".

On the last day, a contest for the best lecture and poster took place. The winners were:

1. Tomasz Kołodziejski
2. Łukasz Rzepnicki
3. Przemysław Mazur

1. Łukasz Rzepnicki
2. Hasan Alkanjo
3. Maciej Brzeski i Piotr Wójcik
