Special Functions, Partial Differential Equations and Harmonic Analysis: a conference in honor of Calixto P. Calderón
Friday, November 16, 2012 at 9:00 AM - Sunday, November 18, 2012 at 4:00 PM (CST)
Luis Cafarelli (University of Texas, Austin)
Eduardo Gatto (DePaul University, Chicago)
Andy Carter (Roosevelt University, Chicago)
Wilfredo Urbina (Roosevelt University, Chicago)
Motivation: Calixto P. Calderón is part of what is known as the Calderón-Zygmund school of Harmonic Analysis (Alberto P. Calderón was his older brother). This school had its “epicenter” at the University of Chicago. Calixto obtained his Doctorate at Universidad de Buenos Aires in Argentina with the famous argentinian mathematician Alberto González-Domínguez. Then he came to the United States, were he wrote several papers in both singular integral theory, one of the main focuses of the Calderón-Zygmund school, and in applications of harmonic analysis to partial differential equations, an approach initially developed by his brother Alberto. Calixto is also a pioneer, together with Benjamin Muchkenhoupt, in the area of harmonic analysis for orthogonal polynomial expansions and he also has worked in ordinary differential equations and probability theory. His areas of expertise go beyond pure mathematics, including articles in the mathematical modeling of tumor growth and in the history of mathematics.
Calixto was a Professor of Mathematics at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) for almost 30 years (1974-2003). In 2003 he became Professor Emeritus. He had 8 doctoral students and 47 descendants according to the Mathematics Genealogy Project. Several of our faculty members in the Department of Mathematics and Actuarial Science at Roosevelt Universitywere students of Calixto at UIC.
