Preface The Sixth International Conference on Complex Analysis and Dynamical Systems (CA&DS VI), sponsored by ORT Braude College (Karmiel, Israel), Bar-Ilan University (Ramat-Gan, Israel) and the University of Miami (Miami, FL, USA), took place at the Carlton Hotel, Nahariya, Israel, during May 19-24, 2013. The conference was devoted to the interaction between various branches of Mathematical Analysis and was organized into three main parallel sessions: Complex Analysis, Partial Differential Equations and General Relativity. Altogether, 154 participants from 21 countries attended the Conference, which was held in honor of Professor David Shoikhet’s sixtieth birthday. The Conference was held in conjunction with the ISF (Israel Science Foundation) Workshop on Integral Transforms and Spectral Theory in Analysis and Geometry. These proceedings, which comprise two volumes, are the tangible record of the Conference. Most of the papers collected here have been contributed by participants in the Conference. In some cases, they have chosen to submit manuscripts which depart from the texts of their lectures. Several invited speakers who were unable to attend the Conference also contributed papers to these proceedings. All submissions have been carefully refereed. The papers in this first volume are mainly devoted to Partial Differential Equations, Differential Geometry, and the Radon Transform while the papers in the second volume deal with Complex Analysis, Quasiconformal Mappings, and Complex Dynamics. They testify to the continued vitality of the interplay between classical and modern analysis. We acknowledge with thanks the support provided for the Conference by the US National Science Foundation, the Galilee Research Center for Applied Mathematics of ORT Braude College, the University of Miami, the Gelbart Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences of Bar-Ilan University, the Emmy Noether Research Institute for Mathematics of Bar-Ilan University, and the ISAAC– International Society for Analysis, its Applications and Computations. Finally, we thank Miriam Beller, who (as in previous volumes) served as Technical Editor. The Editors ix
