Nonlinear PDE’s @ IMPA - 2008

IMPA, Rio de Janeiro, de 04/08 até 08/08, 2008

The field of nonlinear partial differential equations has experienced a striking evolution over the last fifteen years in Brazil. The number of PhD’s and students has increased creating a critical mass. In this process it is fundamental to have a scientific interchange with researchers leaders in the field. The aim of the workshop is to continuing this process by allowing the community to attend to lectures of recent and important progress in the field delivered by renowned specialists. The workshop will bring together leading experts in nonlinear dispersive equations and nonlinear hyperbolic systems of conservation laws. Graduate students and young PhD’s are encouraged to participate of this meeting.

The main themes in the workshop “Nonlinear PDE’s @ IMPA” will be:

  • Nonlinear Dispersive Equations
  • Nonlinear Hyperbolic systems of Conservation Laws

The meeting will also include related topics such as:

  • Equations of Fluid Mechanics
  • Kinetic Equations
  • Optimal Transport
  • Variational Problems
  • Homogenization



Organizing Committee:

  • Hermano Frid (IMPA)
  • Rafael Iorio (IMPA)
  • Felipe Linares (IMPA)
