Numerous mathematicians will meet to discuss the most recent advances in nonlocal operators and applications at The Banff Centre April 27 - May 2, 2008 for the workshop hosted by the Banff International Research Station. Nonlocal operators form a particular class of mathematical tools that are extremely useful in a wide range of applications (mathematical finance, formation of crystals etc.). This workshop will gather mathematicians from around the world to discuss the recent progress of mathematics concerning those operators and their applications.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the US National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnologí­a (CONACYT).
