2nd IMA Conference on Nonlinearity and Coherent Structures

Date:  Monday 19 – Wednesday 21 June 2017

Location:  University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK

Call for Papers

Nonlinearity plays an important role in many fields of Science, Engineering and Technology.

The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers working on aspects of nonlinear phenomena and to encourage interaction between experts from different areas such as Applied Mathematics, Mathematical Analysis, Fluid Dynamics, Engineering and Physics.  Recent theoretical developments, new computational methods and experimental findings will be presented and discussed. We plan to avoid parallel sessions and foster as much as possible communication across the different communities.

Conference topics:

  • Integrable systems
  • Nonlinear waves in fluids
  • Soliton theory
  • Nonlinear evolution PDEs
  • Orthogonal polynomials
  • Mathematical biology
  • Coherent structures in shear flows and transition to turbulence

Invited Speakers

Professor Mariana Haragus (Université de Franche-Comté, France)

Professor Diane Henderson (Penn State University, USA)

Professor Arno Kuijlaars (KU Leuven, Belgium)

Professor Beatrice Pelloni (Heriot-Watt University)

Professor Jean-Luc Thiffeault (University of Wisconsin)

Professor Jean-Marc Vanden-Broeck (University College London)

Call for Papers
