Non Linear Analysis, Geometry and Applications Project
The main focus of NLAGA is to strongly contribute to the development of Non Linear Analysis, Geometry and their Applications in West Africa, by creating a community of mathematicians working on problems directly related to this field. This network aims to provide an attractive and stimulating scientific environment for graduate students in West Africa and give them the opportunity to work with high quality specialists.
In the next ten years, We plan to build a strong school in Non Linear Analysis, Geometry and their Applications by promoting interactions and collaborations with the international community of mathematicians working in fields directly related to the focus of the NLAGA project.
In addition to the real opportunity to create a West African community on Non Linear Analysis and Geometry and their Applications, our aim is to speed up the dynamic of doing high-quality research in mathematical subjects directly related to sustainable development of West Africa.
The NLAGA project has been awarded a five year grant by the SIMONS FOUNDATION. This grant supports networks of resourceful young mathematicians working in Sub-Saharan Africa. The NLAGA project has been chosen among 33 others, after a competition in two rounds after which three projects were selected.
The NLAGA project is suported by the Unversity Cheikh Anta Diop of Dakar. UCAD is the fisrt and the biggest Senegalease University with approximately 80, 000 students and 1, 500 teacher-researchers. The NLAGA project is based at UCAD and special logistical efforts have been done by UCAD to ease and improve the project's efficiency and success.
