Nonlinear waves act as information carriers in models of phenomena arising in areas ranging from neurobiology and optical communications to oceanography and geo-physics. Although linear and nonlinear waves are a well-studied subject in applied mathematics, the research area of nonlinear waves has in recent years gained renewed impetus through a cross-fertilization between classical analysis, dynamical systems theory, numerical simulations and the interaction with applications, especially in the earth and life sciences.
This workshop can be seen as the third in a sequence of workshops with the same title and subject (Oberwolfach, January 2003; CIRM Luminy, October 2004). The aim of this and the previous workshops is to focus on specific aspects of the rapidly developing field of nonlinear wave dynamics, such as
- Wave interactions
- Stability in higher spatial dimensions
