Dates: September 4 - 8, 2017

Venue: Lipschitz-Saal, Endenicher Allee 60

Organizer: Herbert Koch (Bonn)

Participants of Hausdorff School: Dispersive Equations, Solitons, and Blow-up (click to enlarge)



Nonlinear dispersive equations are models for nonlinear waves in a wide range of physical contexts. They display an interplay between linear dispersion and nonlinear interactions, which can result in a wide range of outcomes from finite time blow-up to solitons and scattering. They are linked to many areas of mathematics and physics, ranging from integrable systems and harmonic analysis to fluid dynamics, geometry and general relativity, probabilities.

This Hausdorff school is intended for motivated graduate and postdoctoral students who want to get acquainted with the recent developments in this field. There will be three mini-courses and several invited lectures by other experts in the field.
