1.Quasilinear equations, inverse problems and their applications |

Dates | 30 Nov 2015 → 02 Dec 2015 | [ID=746548] |

Location | Dolgoprudny, Russia |

Abstract | The conference is devoted to modern mathematical methods of analysis of wave propagation and non-destructive testing. Related mathematical problems arise within different tomographies (acoustic tomography, tomographies using elementary particles, electro-magnetic tomographies), in analysis of Schumpeter dynamics in economic growth models, in analysis of wave motion, in general, and analysis of shock wave dynamics, in particular. In the framework of the conference the current state of the theory of quasi-linear equations and inverse problems will be discussed , as well as possible applications in medicine, geophysics, nano-physics, modeling of economic dynamics and traffic flows, and in physics of dispersive mediums. |

2.Moduli16 — Moduli spaces, integrable systems, and topological recursions |

Dates | 09 Jan 2016 → 13 Jan 2016 | [ID=710774] |

Location | Montreal, Canada |

Abstract | The computation and enumeration of invariants of moduli spaces took a sudden turn with the conjecture of Witten that they could be combined into a formal series that solved the KdV hierarchy. This conjecture, subsequently proven by Kontsevich, was motivated by considerations of quantum gravity. It was followed by a series of developments in the same direction, notably in the computation of invariants for Hurwitz spaces and for Gromov-Witten invariants, for example in the work of Okounkov and Pandharipande, tying Gromov-Witten theory to the 2-Toda hierarchy. Kontsevich's proof involved a detour through the theory of random matrices, and subsequently Eynard and Orantin proposed a vast generalization of the technique, with a wide variety of implications. The questions have physical motivations, and has advanced with the rapid mixture of calculation and heuristic reasoning which characterizes theoretical physics; mathematicians have in many but not all cases provided proof, and, it is hoped, some understanding. The theory of integrable systems seems to lie at the heart of the subject, providing a thematic link. It is fair to say, though, that the way in which it happens is still ill-understood. Indeed, so far, it is more the tools, computational devices, and actual functions that appear, rather than flows and conserved quantities. It is hoped that recent physical input, again from the theory of quantum gravity, will help develop understanding. |

3.Optimal and Random Point Configurations: From Statistical Physics to Approximation Theory |

Dates | 27 Jun 2016 → 01 Jul 2016 | [ID=748609] |

Location | Institut Henri Poincar�, Paris, France |

Abstract | This conference aims at bringing together the communities of probabilists, statistical physicists, approximation theorists, and analysts, who work with different points of view on issues of optimal and random point configurations such as Fekete sets, Coulomb gases, point processes arising in random matrices, and crystallization questions. Particular attention will be given to the lectures being accessible to young researchers and a poster session will be organized. |

7.London Mathematical Society -- EPSRC Durham Symposium Geometric and Algebraic Aspects of Integrability |

Dates | 25 Jul 2016 → 04 Aug 2016 | [ID=749751] |

Location | Durham, United Kingdom |

Abstract | The history of integrable systems goes back to 19th century work in classical mechanics, differential geometry, complex analysis, differential equations and nonlinear special functions. The modern theory is grew up around the study of KdV type equations, following the discovery of multi-soliton solutions, infinite number of conservation laws and the Inverse Scattering Transform in the 1960s and 1970s. In the 1980s new ideas came via integrable field theories and connections with harmonic maps and differential geometry were re-established. Links with other areas of mathematics - algebraic geometry, twistor theory, self-duality, representation theory, number theory, enumerative geometry, Gromov-Witten theory and Topological Quantum Field Theories grew in the 1990s and through into the 21st Century. The aim of the Symposium is to bring together leading international researchers in the various sub-fields of integrable systems, concentrating primarily on the mathematical aspects of the theory. |

9.ICERM Semester Program on Singularities and Waves In Incompressible Fluids |

Dates | 30 Jan 2017 → 05 May 2017 | [ID=734290] |

Location | Providence, United States |

Abstract | Incompressible fluids are an abundant source of mathematical and practical problems. The question of global-in-time regularity versus finite-time singularity formation for incompressible fluids, governed by the Navier-Stokes or Euler equations, has been one of the most challenging outstanding problems in applied PDE. There have also been new developments in the study of the onset of turbulence due to linear and nonlinear instabilities in incompressible fluids. Interfacial and surface water waves are physical phenomena that, in addition to the challenges outlined above, involve the evolution of free boundaries. These problems embody many of the mathematical challenges found in studies of nonlinear PDEs. Progress on these topics is possible because of advances in analysis, numerical computations and physical experiments. In addition, ocean field observations provide a reality test to all conclusions and invite new problems to be addressed. In this program, we provide a venue for interaction among researchers engaged in all of these problem-solving techniques to focus on topics arising in incompressible fluids. Topics of particular interest include: singularity formation, stability and bifurcation; the modeling and analysis of simplified phenomenological models for the description of coherent structures; and time-dependent and steady free boundary problems including water waves, vortex sheets, capillary problems with contact lines and viscous waves with boundary layers. |
