International Conference:

Nonlinear Waves--Theory and Applications

Beijing, June 09- 12, 2008


The goal of this conference is to survey recent advances on a wide range of topics of current interest in nonlinear waves and related phenomena including: integrable and nonintegrable equations, physical applications such as optics, Bose-Einstein condensates and fluid dynamics, and numerical computations. The conference will provide a forum for mathematicians and physicists worldwide to present their latest results and a means to discuss their recent research with each other. Themes of this conference include(but are not limited to):
  • Continuous and discrete integrable equations
  • Algebraic methods of integrable equations
  • New types of solutions in integrable equations
  • Riemann-Hilbert problems
  • Semi-classical limits of integrable equations
  • Solitary wave interactions and collisions in non-integrable systems
  • Stability theory of solitary waves
  • Numerical computations of nonlinear-wave problems
  • Nonlinear waves in periodic and inhomogeneous media
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Bose-Einstein condensation
  • Wave phenomena in the atmosphere and the ocean
