Working Group on Nonlinear Evolution Equations

Meetings take place Wednesdays, 2:10pm - 3:30 pm in The Fields Institute Boardroom (Room 210)
Summer Meetings: Wednesdays, 10:30am - 12:00 pm in The Fields Institute Boardroom (Room 210)

Organizers: Jim Colliander, University of Toronto, Robert Jerrard, University of Toronto, Robert McCann, University of Toronto

The Fields Working Group on Nonlinear Evolution Equations is an informal group of students and researchers in analysis, applied mathematics, and partial differential equations, who convene once a week to discuss mathematical research of common interest. It functions partly as a journal club and partly as a venue for presenting work in progress, especially by young researchers. The 2002-03 research theme centers around nonlinear heat flows and models for fluid mechanics. Participants are welcome, as are suggestions for presentations. Background readings for upcoming seminars can be found at http://www.math.toronto.edu/hmaroofi/seminar/seminar.html
