Analysis of dispersive systems


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

Workshop theme

The workshop will bring an in-depth focus on analytical methods used in the study of dispersive shock waves (DSW) and related phenomena in dispersive systems.  Several areas of current interest will be covered:

(i) The development of the inverse scattering transform (IST) and the Riemann-Hilbert approach to semi-classical limits for integrable partial differential equations (PDEs) with non-zero initial boundary conditions.

(ii) Analysis of perturbed periodic waves in dispersive systems with connections to rigorous modulation theory, dynamics, and stability.

(iii) Multidimensional dispersionless systems, their dispersive deformations, and dispersive regularisation of multidimensional wavebreaking.

(iv) Rigorous dispersive hydrodynamic research in connection with other programme themes including numerical analysis of dispersive systems and relationships to conservation law theory.

Deadline for applications: 5th June 2022

HYD22 programme participants DO NOT need to apply, programme participants with visit dates during H22W02 will automatically be added to the attendee list.

Please note members of Cambridge University are welcome to turn up and sign in as a non-registered attendee on the day(s) during the workshop and attend the lecture(s). Please note that we cannot provide you with any support including name badge, meals or accommodation.

In addition to visiting the INI, there are multiple ways in which you can participate remotely.
