Local Organisers: Malcolm Brown, Marco Marletta
Logo of Cardiff

This meeting is a half-day program of seminars on topics at the interface between complex analysis, differential equations and operator theory, partially funded by a Leverhulme Lectureship for Professor Heinz Langer and by a grant from Sefydliad Gwyddorau Mathemategol a Chyfrifiannol Cymru, and will take place at Cardiff School of Mathematics.


If you would like to attend please send an email with the subject Analysis Octoberfest stating your name and affiliation and whether or not you will come to lunch.

Cardiff School of Mathematics is at 21-23 Senghennydd Road and is 200m south-east of Cathays railway station. It takes 20-25 minutes to walk to the School from Cardiff Central railway station. In the Google Map, Senghennydd Road (the street where the Mathematics Building is located) is mis-named as 'Woodville Road'.


13:00-14:00 Lunch, sponsored by Sefydliad Gwyddorau Mathemategol a Chyfrifiannol Cymru.

14:00-15:00 Heinz Langer (Technische Universitšt Wien)
Extension theory of symmetric operators and applications

15:30-16:30 James Langley (University of Nottingham)
Non-real zeros of derivatives of real meromorphic functions.

16:30-17:30 Ian Wood (University of Kent)
The abstract M-function and its relation to the spectrum


Cardiff School of Mathematics is close to all the main tourist attractions in Cardiff city centre, so there is plenty of choice if you want to book yourself accommodation. Two large hotels less than 500m from the Mathematics Building are:
  • Hilton, 1 Kingsway, Cardiff CF10 3HH, tel: 029 2064 6300, web: www.hilton.com
  • Parc Hotel, Park Place, Cardiff, CF10 3UD, tel: 0871 376 9011, email: theparchotel@thistle.co.uk

There are many other hotels online, including a number of Bed and Breakfast guesthouses in Cathedral Road and on Newport Road, approximately 20-30 minutes' walk from the Mathematics Building. Concerning guesthouses/small hotels, recent visitors have indicated that this small hotel and this small hotel are good.
