Fields Institute Workshop on Nonlinear Wave Dynamics
August 20-22

at Carleton University, Ottawa

.Organizers: David Amundsen, Lucy Campbell (Carleton University)


Nonlinear wave interactions lie at the heart of numerous physical phenomena and the mathematical modelling of these systems has driven the development of a broad and vibrant field of mathematical research. The study of nonlinear wave equations has lead to the development of numerous mathematical techniques including aspects of scattering theory, asymptotic expansions, perturbation theory, as well as substantial advances in numerical simulation methods for wave propagation. This workshop will bring together researchers with expertise both in the numerical and analytic aspects of nonlinear wave problems and provide opportunity for students and other researchers to share in the latest developments in these areas.

The format of the workshop will be 4 short courses each consisting of 3-4 hours of lectures over 3 days. Students and other researchers will be invited to present their work as short lectures.

Invited Speakers:

Triantaphyllos R. Akylas, Dept of Mechanical Engineering, MIT
Simon Clarke, School of Mathematical Sciences, Monash University, Australia.
Gordon Swaters, Dept of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, University of Alberta.
Jianke Yang, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Vermont.
