The Second International Conference:

Nonlinear Waves--Theory and Applications

Beijing, June 26-29, 2010

The first international conference: ˇ°Nonlinear Waves -- Theory and Applicationsˇ± took place in Beijing, China (on Tsinghua University campus) from June 9-12, 2008. That conference was characterized by its high level of scientific content and attractive venue for collegial interactions. The conference had approximately 200 speakers delivering talks on a wide range of topics in nonlinear waves. (Click here to see detailed information on that conferece.)
Based on the success of the first conference, the second international conference: ˇ°Nonlinear waves -- theory and applicationsˇ± will continue to be held in Beijing, China from June 26-29, 2010. As before, 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 non-integrable 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 not limited to):
  • Bose-Einstein condensation
  • Continuous and discrete integrable equations
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Nonlinear waves in periodic and inhomogeneous media
  • Numerical computations of nonlinear-wave problems
  • Riemann-Hilbert problems
  • Semi-classical limits of nonlinear wave equations
  • Solitary wave interactions and collisions
  • Stability theory of solitary waves
  • Wave phenomena in biological systems
  • Wave phenomena in the atmosphere and the ocean
