Analysis of Nonlinear Waves

in the frame of the International Conference “Mathematics Days in Sofia”


his mini-symposium is focused on a variety of problems concerning solutions of a large class of partial differential equations of mathematical physics. These equations support coherent structures like solitary or periodic traveling waves, as well as wave trains and multi-pulses. Such solutions are very important objects when modeling physical processes and their stability is essential in practical applications. Stable states of the system are key because they attract all nearby configurations, while the loss of stability or being able to control it is of practical importance as well. Speakers will showcase the use of dynamical systems, spectral and variational methods, as well as the techniques of Fourier analysis, to resolve an array of open problems in the theory of existence, long-time asymptotic and stability for nonlinear wave solutions.
