Topic #8 ------------ OP-SF NET 8.2 ---------------- March 15, 2001 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ From: Anatoly Kilbas (email@example.com) and Sergei Rogosin (firstname.lastname@example.org) Subject: Report on AMADE-2001 International Conference "Analytical Methods of Analysis and Differential Equations" (AMADE-2001), Minsk, Belarus, February 15-19, 2001 The international conference "Analytical Methods of Analysis and Differential Equations" (AMADE-2001) took place February 15-19, 2001 in Minsk, Belarus. It continues the series of the international conferences "Boundary Value Problems, Special Functions and Fractional Calculus" devoted to the 90th birthday of academician F.D.Gakhov (Minsk, Belarus, February 15-20, 1996), and "Analytical Methods of Analysis and Differential Equations" (AMADE) (Minsk, Belarus, September 14-18, 1999). AMADE-2001 was organized by the Belarusian State University, the Belarusian National Academy of Sciences together with Moscow State University. It was held at the Olympic Sport Center "Staiki" which is situated 10 km from Minsk, the capital of Belarus. 262 mathematicians from 21 countries confirmed their interest in the Conference. Abstracts of their reports were published in "Abstracts of AMADE-2001". 138 scientists from Algeria, Belarus, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Kasakhstan, Kuwait, Lithuania, Macedonia, Poland, Russia, Ukraine and Yugoslavia took part in AMADE-2001. The work of the conference was divided into four sections: 1. Integral transforms and special functions. 2. Differential equations and applications. 3. Integral, difference, functional equations and fractional calculus. 4. Real and complex analysis. There were 20 plenary invited lectures and 124 sectional talks devoted to different problems of analysis and differential equations. Plenary invited lectures were given by the following mathematicians: Antonevich A.B. (Minsk, Belarus) Homogeneous Banach algebras and algebraic fibering Begehr H.

His former students and successors gave talks. Participants remarked on the high scientific level of the conference. The Proceedings of AMADE-2001 will be published in special issues of the Journal "Proceedings of Institute of Mathematics" of the Belarusian National Academy of Sciences. Some of the reports were recommended for publication in the Journal "Integral Transforms and Special Functions".
