CRM Nirenberg Lectures in Geometric Analysis

The lecture series is named in honour of Louis Nirenberg, one of the most prominent geometric analysts of our time. Louis Nirenberg was born in 1925 in Hamilton, Ontario. After his family moved to Montréal, he attended Baron Byng High School, followed by McGill University, earning his B.Sc. there in 1945. In 1949 Louis Nirenberg received a Ph.D. from New York University, where he later became a professor at the Courant Institute. His fundamental contributions include the pioneering work on nonlinear PDE techniques in global differential geometry, the Gagliardo-Nirenberg inequalities in the theory of Sobolev spaces, the Agmon-Douglis-Nirenberg theory of elliptic boundary value problems, the John-Nirenberg space of functions of bounded mean oscillation (BMO), the Kohn-Nirenberg theory of pseudo-differential operators, and the Newlander-Nirenberg theorem in complex geometry. The research achievements of Louis Nirenberg were previously recognized by numerous prizes and awards, such as the National Medal of Science, the Chern Medal, the Crafoord Prize, the Steele Prize, the Jeffery-Williams Prize and the Abel Prize.
