The goal of this meeting is to gather researchers interested in the study of elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations via techniques which find their roots in the Maximum Principle.

This conference will be in spirit a sequel to the conferences Positivity: a key to fully-nonlinear equations (Vietri 2010) and Mostly Maximum Principle (Roma 2012, Agropoli 2015, Banff 2017 and Cortona 2022).

The Mostly Maximum Principle – 5th edition will take place at the Auditório do Rio DataCentro (RDC), Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio), Brazil, from June 24 to June 28, 2024.
