differential equation (PDE) is fully nonlinear if it is nonlinear
with respect to the highest order derivatives. Fully nonlinear PDEs
arise in many different areas in geometry and physics. The most
well-known examples are the Monge-Ampere equation, which relates to
curvature problems in geometry, and the Bellman equation, which
arises in stochastic control theory. The study of fully nonlinear
PDEs has been a very active area in the last two decades and
remarkable advances have been made. This program will emphasize
recent new developments in this field.
