Workshop on Nonlinear Waves and Hyperbolic Equations.

Understanding properties of nonlinear partial differential equations modeling nonlinear wave phenomena is a fundamental challenge in pure and applied mathematics. In recent years the field has seen many advances in theory, numerics and applications. Long-established open problems have been successfully handled with new techniques, and new phenomena and models have been discovered. The workshop brought together leading experts in an informal setting presenting current trends in the field, relevant to the CAS program. Themes included hyperbolic conservation laws, free boundary problems, transport equations, wave equations, Camassa-Holm and related equations, and compressible fluid flow.
