"A Conference in Analysis" was held at The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, from Tuesday, October 12, 1999 through Saturday, October 16, 1999.
Organizing Committee: Vitaly Bergelson, Dan Burghelea, Joe Diestel, and Paul Nevai [chair]
The purpose of the conference was to bring together distinguished mathematicians in a number of areas of analysis such as Complex Analysis, Harmonic Analysis, Operator Theory, Partial Differential Equations, Banach Spaces, and Approximation Theory, with young researchers and graduate students. The conference topics are closely related to the research subjects which our friend and colleague Boris Mityagin has studied during his forty year long mathematical career.
The speaker were Yuri Brudnyi, Ronald A. DeVore, Alexander Dynin, Per Enflo, Ciprian Ilie Foias, Theodore W. Gamelin, Evgenii A. Gorin, William B. Johnson, Thomas Kappeler, Yitzhak Katznelson, Boris Korenblum, Anatolii Kostioutchenko, Vitali Milman, Nikolai K. Nikolski, Sergey Novikov, Alexander Pelczynski, Vladimir M. Tikhomirov, Dietmar Vogt, Alexander Volberg, Vyaceslav Zahariuta, and Nahum Zobin.
The list of particpiants is given here.
The conference was supported by funds from the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications at Minnesota, the International Mathematical Research Institute at Ohio State, and the National Science Foundation.
Subject to availability of funds, we provided partial financial support for some of the participants. Priority was given to [North American based] graduate students and recent Ph.D.'s.
Those who wished to be placed on the e-mail list of the conference should have sent a message to email@example.com. Up-to-date information was [and will be] be posted on this web page.
N.B. All the talks were held in the 7th floor lounge of the math department [MW 724], and they lasted approximately 50 minutes each.

Yuri Brudnyi [B] The "Main Problem" of interpolation space theory: dreams and reality Ronald A. DeVore [P] The Averaging Lemma and new thoughts on interpolation of operators Alexander Dynin [P] Nuclear Spaces: Past, Present and Future Abstract: Among the initial subjects of the B. Mityagin mathematical research we find the nuclear vector spaces. They had been introduced by A. Grothendieck in 1951 (thus we are close to another anniversary to celebrate). In this non-technical lecture I shall highlight Boris' results about them in the context of the "golden years" of Moscow mathematical school. After the early fascination with the nuclear spaces, they have almost moved to limbo. However they are destined to have an essential role in the future analysis in infinite dimensions, rather than the less flexible Banach spaces. The lecture should be accessible for graduate students. Per Enflo [B] Extremal vectors and invariant subspaces Ciprian Ilie Foias [P] Ramsey Equilibria in Economics Abstract: This will be a survey of the work done by R.A. Becker and the speaker, on a model introduced by the former as a mathematical metaphor for the economical ideas of F. Ramsey. Theodore W. Gamelin Uniform algebras and Banach spaces Eugeni A. Gorin [B] Universal symbols on locally compact Abelian groups William B. Johnson [P] Affine approximation of Lipschitz functions Thomas Kappeler [B] Birkhoff coordinates for KdV and applications Yitzhak Katznelson [B] Chromatic numbers of Cayley graphs and recurrence Boris Korenblum [P/B] Jensen-type inequalities and radial null sets Anatolii Kostioutchenko Stability of the top with cavity filled with a [P] viscous fluid Vitali Milman [B] A concept of Concentration on Probability Spaces Nikolai K. Nikolski [B] Recent progress in the similarity problem Sergey Novikov [P] Graphs: Scattering and Solitons Alexander Pelczynski [P] Riesz-Sobolev projections Vladimir M. Tikhomirov Optimal methods of approximation and recovery of [P/B] smooth and analytic functions Dietmar Vogt [B] On the space of real analytic functions Alexander Volberg [P] Noncommutative weighted estimates and sharp bounds for vector paraproducts Vyaceslav Zahariuta [B] Linear topological invariants Nahum Zobin [B] Whitney's problem and Fourier Analysis in Fock space

If you were promised [partial] payment for your transportation, please see Ms. Radcliff during the conference and show her your ticket. Ms. Radcliff will need your home address and, maybe, your SSN or passport number. Please ask her directly about the information needed.
Ms. Radcliff will consult the organizers how much to pay. Eventually, if we are to reimburse you for some of your expenses, you will receive a check sent to your home address. If you don't get the monies within a reasonable period of time, say 6 weeks, then please consult Ms. Radcliff.
Please keep in mind that if we pay your hotel directly then it will be significantly cheaper since there will be no sales tax. Nevertheless, if you wish, we can pay directly to you the amount we promised you.
The organizers will be busy doing many things during and after the conference, including teaching their classes and attending the lectures so that they will have very little time if any at all dealing with matters of financial nature. Hence, all financial issues must be addressed directly to Ms. Radcliff.
On the other hand, Ms. Radcliff will deal only with financial matters so please do not ask her for any other favors.
