The CRM will be hosting a conference titled "Gauge Theories, Monopolies, Moduli Spaces and Intregrable Systems" in honour of Professor Jacques Hurtubise's 60th birthday. It will be taking place August 21-25, 2017. Please find info provided in the following link.


Abstract: The first subject of this talk is an isoperimetric inequality for the second non-zero eigenvalue of the Laplace-Beltrami operator on the real projective plane (based on a joint paper with N. Nadirashvili). For a metric of area 1 this eigenvalue is not greater than 20\pi. This value could be attained as a limit on a sequence of metrics of area 1 on the projective plane converging to a singular metric on the projective plane and the sphere with standard metrics touching in a point such that the ratio of the areas of the projective plane and the sphere is 3:2.
