Show List of Speakers

The first week of May 2010 coincides with the first year anniversary of Alan Weinstein's retirement from UC Berkeley; Weinstein has been one of the most influential figures in symplectic geometry, Poisson geometry and analysis in the past forty years. Weinstein's fundamental work inspired many others and led to the development of central concepts in symplectic and Poisson geometry, as well as to the establishment of symplectic geometry as an independent discipline within mathematics. This conference will be a forum to celebrate Weinstein's fundamental contributions to geometry and mathematics at large.
