International Conference on Integral Geometry, Harmonic Analysis and Representation Theory in honor of Sigurdur Helgason's 80th birthday will take place at the University of Iceland August 15 through August 18.
The history of harmonic analysis goes back to the eighteenth century work of Fourier on the heat equation. But it is also closely related to the modern development of number theory, geometry, operator algebras, representation theory and physics, in particular quantum mechanics. The emphasis of this conference is on abstract harmonic analysis, integral geometry and representation theory of Lie groups and the interplay between those fields. This includes generalizations of well known integral transform like the Radon transform to compact and noncompact symmetric spaces, applications of complex methods in real harmonic analysis on homogeneous spaces and algebraic methods in representation theory and its connection to analysis.
