Multivariate Approximation and Interpolation with Applications

26-30. August 2019


MAIA 2019 (Multivariate Approximation and Interpolation with Applications) will take place at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute for Mathematics and Physics (ESI) in Vienna, Austria.

Scope of MAIA:

The conference covers classical topics in approximation theory, such as
  • Multivariate approximation and interpolation,
  • Spline theory, Radial basis functions, polynomial approximation,
  • Wavelets theory and applications,
  • Numerical Methods for approximation,
  • ...
In the last decades approximation theory has evolved into several independent fields that no longer labeled approximation theory. However, the mathematical foundations and conceptual ideas of these fields are invariably based on approximation theory. The goal of this conference is to reconnect and harmonize the classical directions of approximation theory with some of its modern reincarnations, such as
  • Learning theory,
  • Compressed sensing,
  • Computational harmonic analysis,
  • Geometry processing, Subdivision schemes,
  • Meshless approximation, Numerical Methods for PDEs,
  • Sparse approximation,
  • ....
The special feature of MAIA is the emphasis on conceptual unity and enriching, friendly and professional interactions.


is by invitation only with approximately 60 participants. Official invitations will be sent out by ESI in summer/fall 2018.
