Nonlinear dispersive equations is one of the most active areas of research in PDEs in
which a variety of methods and techniques is used to study evolution problems
representing physically meaningful objects such as nonlinear waves. Because of its
physical roots it is perhaps the most “interdisciplinary” field within Partial Differential
Equations (PDEs) and tools used come from real analysis, harmonic analysis, nonlinear
analysis, theory of integrable systems and other mathematical disciplines. The models
studied include: the Korteweg-de Vries (KdV) equations and its variants in the shallow
waves theory, the nonlinear Schrödinger, Klein-Gordon and wave equations, Yang-Mills
system, wave maps, Einstein and Maxwell equations.
The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers working both in nonlinear
dispersive equations and in some of the related areas to present recent developments and
directions in their respective fields.
We plan three minicourses led by the following confirmed invited speakers
Patrick Gérard, Université Paris-Sud
Wilhelm Schlag, Yale University
