Summer School

Hamiltonian PDE's and Variational Methods


Villa Orlandi 8-12 september 2008

Courses by: i faraglioni

The school is thought as an Introduction to the fascinating field of Hamiltonian Partial Differential Equations, whose knowledge requires tools of both local and global Bifurcation Theory, Variational Methods, Dynamical Systems.

We will have three courses of five lectures each. We also plan to organize Seminars on current research topics.

The school will start on Monday, September 8 at 10:00 and end on Friday, September 12, at 12:30. A detailed program will be available soon.

On a separate page you can find the schedule and the abstracts.

The center is located in a 18th century Villa in Anacapri, in the island of Capri. Restored in the outmost respect of the architectonic quality, this villa is a very pleasant place in which to hold Conferences.

The villa has a conference room which holds 40 persons and a smaller conference room for 26. A wi-fi connection and six on-line Personal Computers are available for the participants.

For more informations please see the web-page of Villa Orlandi

As of today (July 28, 2008) all registred participants have a room reserved by the organization in one of the following Hotels: Bellavista, Casa Mariantonia, Senaria, Da Gelsomina.

On the web-page of Villa Orlandi there is a list of Hotels in Anacapri which are situated close to Villa Orlandi and offer special rates (not always updated). Since september is still high season in Capri, we suggest to reserve well in advance.

the harbourTo reach Capri:

Fast boats for Capri (approximately 50 minutes, 17 euro) leave from Molo Beverello. Slower, larger boats (approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, 9.60 euro) leave from Calata di Massa. Look on this web site for a complete timetable.

To reach Molo Beverello:

To reach Calata di Massa (which is within walking distance from Molo Beverello, about 10 minutes walk): the taxi fare is the same as that for Molo Beverello. To reach it by bus you should go to Molo Beverello following the above directions, and then take a free shuttle that takes you to Calata di Massa.

To reach Anacapri from the harbour in Capri you can take a bus that leaves on the left (facing the sea) of the harbour.

The registration is now closed. For any information, please send an e-mail to Michela Procesi.

Thanks to our sponsors, we succeded in funding about 30 participants.
