The Second International Conference:Nonlinear Waves--Theory and Applications

The first international conference: “Nonlinear Waves -- Theory and Applications” 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: “Nonlinear waves -- theory and applications” 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
