This workshop provides a hands-on introduction and overview of EndNote, a reference management software. In this session, students will be introduced to the concept of bibliographic management software, learn to collect references from bibliographic databases and organize them efficiently in EndNote, and learn how to use EndNote in conjunction with Microsoft Word to generate citations and bibliographies.
Title: Arboreal structures on groups and the associated boundaries - II
Organizer : Joseph Khoury (University of Ottawa)
Title: Extension theorem for functions of bounded mean oscillation and its variations
Abstract: We make a brief overview of the class of functions called BMO and its role in some problems of analysis. The main question we discuss is “How to extend BMO functions (and variants thereof) defined on a domain to the entire Euclidean space?” Some results of a joint work with Galia Dafni are presented.
