PDEs @ Essex 2024

We are very excited to bring researchers to discuss Problems in potential theory of nonlinear PDEs in this three-day meeting. The aim of this event is to motivate discussions that would lead to fruitful connections between different approaches in the study of PDEs. We hope this meeting will inspire new collaborations and build bridges between the participants. This workshop is part of the activities of the Analysis and Mathematical Physics group of the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Actuarial Science at the University of Essex.

Problems in potential theory of nonlinear PDEs 

Solvability of the Dirichlet for Laplacian is an old problem and (probably) the first work is due to G. Green (1828). Since then this problem has been studied in various type of domains including Lipschitz and non-tangentially accessible domains with Ahlfors regular boundaries and for many other PDEs. Although the Neumann problem is relatively new, it has also been extensively studied in various settings for many PDEs. The second day of the workshop will focus on different aspect of analysis of PDEs including solvability of Dirichlet and Neuman problems for certain PDEs in rough settings.

Accommodation and travel


If your accommodation will be covered by us, we will contact you and provide further details. Otherwise, the following hotels are a good option. Those who have their own funding are very welcome to attend our workshop but they should arrange their own travel and accommodation.

These hotels are in Colchester and it would take about 40 to 50 minutes to walk to the campus. There are direct buses from Colchester to the campus or you can take a taxi which would cost around £12 depending on the location.


  • By train: Greater Anglia provides frequent trains from London Liverpool Street to Colchester (also known as Colchester North). The train journey from Liverpool Street takes just under an hour and you can get a bus or taxi from the station to the campus.
  • By driving: The postcode is CO4 3SQ, however when you arrive in Colchester, follow road signs to the University (off the A133) to access to main visitor car parks, which is via the B1028, Colchester Road.
  • By flying: The closest airport is Stansted Airport. The quickest way to travel is by National Express using the 250 service which runs directly to and from our campus. Alternatively, there is a local bus x133 to Colchester town centre, but this can take longer and you will need to get a bus or taxi from the town to campus.
