The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) will host the "Dirichlet-to-Neumann Maps: Spectral Theory, Inverse Problems and Applications" workshop from May 29th to June 3rd, 2016.

The Dirichlet-to-Neumann map is a fundamental object appearing widely in many branches of mathematics, physics and engineering. The main purpose of the proposed workshop is to bring together and foster novel interactions between diverse groups of people who are studying and using these maps in different (though interrelated) settings, such as the spectral geometry, inverse problems, and applications ranging from medical imaging to Earth sciences.

The Casa Matemática Oaxaca (CMO) in Mexico, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry.

The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT). The research station in Oaxaca is funded by CONACYT.
