welcome to Toruń and our Conference!
In 1991 a group of Toruń mathematicians took the initiative in organizing the Juliusz Schauder Center for Nonlinear Studies which was founded at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń and whose most important aims are: supporting mathematical research in Nonlinear Analysis and Fixed Point Theory, editing an international journal Topological Methods in Nonlinear Analysis, Lecture Notes Series, and popularising of mathematics (in particular among young people).
As a part of its activity in 1996 the Schauder Center together with the Faculty of Mathematics of the Lodz University organized the first Symposium on Nonlinear Analysis which succeeded in integrating the community of Polish researchers dealing with widely understood nonlinear problems in mathematical sciences.
In 1999 the second Symposium
was organized to commemorate the centenary of the birth of Juliusz Schauder, one of the most eminent members of the famous Polish School of Mathematics. Over one hundred mathematicians from twenty four countries participated in the conference.
The present fifth Symposium on Nonlinear Analysis will also have an international range. Several specialists in different branches of Nonlinear Analysis, Fixed Point Theory, topological and variational methods in differential equations are expected as plenary lecturers. The meeting will take place in a new well-equipped building of The Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń.
We hope for offering the participants good opportunities for research, personal contacts, informal meetings and discussions.
