Description and aim
The mathematical theory of singular perturbation has always been and still is developing in direct interaction with real world applications. As a consequence, many of the numerous recent developments in the theory of singular perturbations have been achieved in special contexts driven by specific applications.
However, the impact of these novel mathematical insights typically goes way beyond the setting of the original application. It is the aim of this workshop to bring together a core group of internationally renowned mathematicians who have, in recent years, been leading the development of the field of singular perturbations – some of them by (also) working in neuroscience, others in ecology or in climate research.
