Hausdorff School: “PDE´s in Fluid Mechanics”

Dates: February 7 - 11, 2022

Venue: Lipschitz-Saal (Endenicher Allee 60, Bonn) 

Organizers: Diego Alonso-Orán (Universität Bonn), Juan J.L. Velazquez (Universität Bonn)

Topic:Fluid mechanics is one of the classical areas   in the study of Partial Differential Equations and has been a vast subject of research in the last centuries. The school intends to promote scientific exchange between leading experts and young researchers in fluid mechanics and possible future directions of research of this area. In particular the key topics to be covered are the analysis of both compressible and incompressible fluids (Euler flows, Navier-Stokes equations, MHD equations), free-boundary interface equations (water waves, Muskat problem) and other associated  model equations.


This Hausdorff school is mainly directed to graduate and postdoctoral students who want to get acquainted with the recent developments and new directions in this field. There will be three courses and some invited lectures by experts in the field.


Key Speakers: The following speakers will give a lecture series:

  •  Ángel Castro (ICMAT)
  •  Maria Colombo (EPFL)
  •  David Lannes (CNRS-Institute de Mathématiques de Bordeaux)

Please send applications using the form below. Limited financial support for PhD students and postdocs may be available.
To be considered for participation, a CV and Letter of Intent (1 page) are required, as well as the name and contact information of a potential reference. (At this time, do not request a letter of recommendation.) Only one document can be uploaded, so please combine all documentation into one PDF.

Please note: Everyone interested in participating - disregarding whether there is need for financial support or not - has to register so that the participation may be administered. Everyone will be notified in due time about whether participation and partial financial support is possible.

Late applications may be considered, but to be given full consideration, please complete all information before the deadline.

The deadline for applications is 31 October 2021.
