Nonlinear Dispersive Waves, Solitons, and Related Topics

10 June - 14 June 2019

One of the most important challenges in the modern theory of nonlinear dispersive PDEs is to understand the structure of global solutions for large times. During the last 30 years, a universal picture has emerged: asymptotically, solutions decompose in a combination of coherent structures, each with its own dynamical features, plus a dispersive remainder. Despite being a difficult and ambitious conjecture, recent progress has shown that it is not beyond reach, at least for several special important models. These advances required a combination of tools from the most diverse areas of mathematics, including nonlinear Fourier analysis, geometry, spectral theory and nonlinear elliptic PDEs. The purpose of the Conference is to gather the leading experts in the field to update on recent developments and to outline the key questions in future research.

Warning regarding possible accommodation scam

It has come to our knowledge that someone posing as a representative for Institut Mittag-Leffler and the organisers of our summer conferences 2019, has been contacting participants regarding accommodation.

This is not supported by the institute or our organisers, and we would like to warn anyone being contacted in this matter to not share any credit card or personal details.

Please contact the administration at Institut Mittag-Leffler if any questions would arise.
