International Workshop On Total Positivity and its Applications

An International Workshop On
Total Positivity and its Applications

Jaca, Spain, September 26--30, 1994

Organised by Departamento de Matematica Aplicada
University of Zaragoza, Spain

Total Positivity has proved to be a powerful tool in many areas of
pure and applied mathematics. However there has never been a meeting
which focused solely on this subject. In view of the diverse
applications of total positivity we feel that a meeting which
draws together experts whose lectures will cover the principal areas of
applications and participants whose research can benefit from these
techniques will be a timely and important scientific event.
Among the topics which we plan to have represented at the conference
are the applications of total positivity to Probability and Statistics,
Combinatorics, Integral and Differential Equations, Geometric Modeling,
Matrix Theory, Approximation Theory, Complex Analysis, Numerical Analysis
and Wavelets Analysis. In each of these fields there are problem
areas in which total positivity has proved to be useful, if not
indispensable. We intend to bring together as many researchers
as possible who use total positivity in their work or are
interested in learning about the latest developments in this subject.

The meeting will take place in the Residence of the University of
Zaragoza, located in the picturesque town of Jaca, in the foothills
of the Spanish Pyrenees, near the French border. Jaca has its historical
origin as the first capital of the medieval kingdom of Aragon, and it
was one of the main gateways to Spain for European pilgrims following the
(Camino de Santiago) to Santiago de Compostela. The cathedral of Jaca
was built in Romanesque style in the 11th century. Jaca now serves as
a year round resort center, because of its proximity to several ski
resorts, as well as for its hiking and camping facilities within the
Pyrenees. There are many possibilities for excursions from Jaca
to enjoy the natural scenery and historical sites within the
surrounding region. The town is accessible by public transportation from
Zaragoza, Madrid and Barcelona. The distance from Zaragoza is
approximately 160 Km. while from Madrid or Barcelona it is about 480 Km.
