Participant Testimonials

Apr 09 - Apr 14, 2017

The workshop gave me an opportunity to see developments in the area I had been working in. It was extremely interesting to see some of the stuff that I did not pay too much attention before, now became a very hot topic, that has applications to variety of areas that cover from geometric optics to economics. I also was able to find a new collaborator in a new research direction, and started another new project with one of my old collaborators. I am very much thankful for BIRS to let me participate in the wonderful meeting!

The workshop in the BIRS helped me broaden my horizon and build connections with other mathematicians in this field. It provided the environment that people could fully focus on problems and communicate thoughts freely.
