Event Details/Other Comments:

* Approximation: wavelets, polynomial and rational approximation, splines, orthogonal polynomials, interpolation, asymptotic analysis, radial basis functions, Fourier approximations, functional spaces and nonlinear techniques of approximation.
* Optimization: linear, non-linear, discrete, continuous, parametric, stochastic, multi-objective and global optimization; nonlinear equations and inequalities; convex, non-convex and non-smooth analysis; critical point theory, numerical methods for optimization; calculus of variation, optimal control, variational inequalities and game theory; numerical techniques for dynamic optimization.
* Mathematical economics: operations research, fixed-point theory, equilibrium for competitive economies, portfolio problems, cooperative and non-cooperative games.
* Applications: engineering and energy models, robotics, pattern recognition, image processing and restoration, interdisciplinary applications of approximation and optimization theory and methods in economics, engineering and general sciences.
