Research
The 11th International Conference by Graduate School of Mathematics, Nagoya University
Topology and Analysis on Foliations
The main theme is a study on foliations from Topological and Analytic viewpoints. We also emphasize its interactions and connections to other fields such as ergodic theory, dynamical system, characteristic classes in a broad sense, global analysis and noncommutative geometry, etc.
