The year 2000 session of the Fall Workshop on Geometry and Physics was organised by the research group on Differential Geometry, Dynamical Systems, and Applications of the Department of Applied Mathematics IV (formerly Department of Applied Mathematics and Telematics) of the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC).

This web page contains the information about the workshop.   The workshop finished, and the proceedings have been published (both in paper and electronic form), so the page is nearly in its final form. 
It keeps all the information it contained in the past, but note that the external links may have become unavailable.   Note also that the the email address of the Workshop (geomphys2000@mat.upc.es) as well as the CGI forms (for the inscription, the submission of posters, etc) are no longer active.

There are several informations spread through the page, but perhaps the most relevant ones are also here:

(most of) the participants


This series of workshops started in 1992, and since then they have been organised by different research institutions with a slight change of name.   Their aim is to enhance and stimulate cooperation between the various teams of researchers working in different fields of Differential Geometry and its applications to some areas of Physics.   They are also designed to give an opportunity to young researchers.   Talks on the latest issues in each field are delivered.

In the year 2000, as a satellite activity of the 3rd European Congress of Mathematics, the Fall Workshop celebrated a special session to convey the achievements of these years to a wider audience.   This resulted in a change of date (it will be held in summer, some days before the 3ecm), of language (mainly English) and of the structure of the programme.

Location and dates

Vilanova i la Geltrú, Catalonia, Spain 
6, 7 and 8 July 2000

Vilanova i la Geltrú is a coastal town, half a way between Barcelona and Tarragona, near the tourist village of Sitges.  It has a population of 50000, and is the capital of the Garraf region.

the town the college

The sessions were held at the lecture hall of the Technical College of Vilanova i la Geltrú from Thursday 6 July morning to Saturday 8 July noon. 
The college is in the centre of the town, near the train station, in the Avinguda de Víctor Balaguer.  It is between the Rambla and the Plaça d'Eduard Maristany on this map.  More information about the college is available here (in English).

The workshp consisted of 16 invited talks and a session of (10) posters.   The participants were encouraged to present posters.

The organising committee planned to publish the proceedings of the workshop, including the talks and short versions of the posters.   This was successfully done! 
Note however that, for different reasons, some of the contributions to the Workshop did not appear in the Proceedings.

More information


The IX Fall Workshop benefitted from the financial support of the following institutions:

  • Ministerio de Ciencia y Tecnología of the Spanish government
  • Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya
  • Departament d'Universitats, Recerca i Societat de la Informació of the Catalan government

We are indebted to the Technical College of Vilanova i la Geltrú and to our department fellows in Vilanova for the facilities during the workshop. 
Our colleague Carles Batlle at the Vilanova section gave us a warm collaboration that was instrumental to starting up the CGI forms in this web page. 
We are also grateful to the graduate students Eva Miranda and Javier Yániz for their enthusiastic collaboration during the preparation and development of the meeting, and also to the undergraduate fellow Enric Meinhardt for his help while preparing the publication of the Proceedings. 
Finally, we wish to acknowledge the willing attitude of all the participants.   In particular, we want to express our gratitude to the authors for their contributions to the Proceedings, to the members of the scientific committee for their permanent support, and to the referees for their generous and indispensable task.
