25-27 August 2010

IMBM*, Istanbul, Turkey



This conference aims to bring together researchers working mainly in the mathematical theory of the Nonlinear Dispersive Equations. This class of equations includes but is not restricted to Nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation, Korteweg-de Vries equation, Klein-Gordon equation, Davey-Stewartson system, coupled NLS equations, long wave-short wave resonance equations, Gross- Pitaevskii equations, etc. Existence and stability of wave solutions as well as the long time behavior of solutions, blow-up profiles will be addressed both analytically and numerically as well as their use as modeling tools.
