Stability of Solitary Waves (School)

Partially supported by Contract FIRB "Dinamiche Dispersive: Analisi di Fourier e Metodi Variazionali.", 2012, NSF Contract No. 1419217, Centro di Ricerca Matematica Ennio De Giorgi, Universita' di Pisa and and Comenius project "Dynamat"

19 May 2014 - 23 May 2014


• Objectives:
to provide an up-to-date intensive course on methods to establish stability of solitary waves for Schrodinger and wave type equations. The equations and models of this type have important applications in different fields: quantum mechanics, biology, medicine. The main goal of the school is to introduce Master Degree Students and PhD Students to the main math tools to study the asymptotic behavior (stability and instability) of the solitary and travelling wave and to have contact and to make mini projects in collaboration with established specialists in the field from Europe, USA, China and Japan.

• Target:
the Course is oriented preferentially to students and PhD students in Mathematics and Physics

• Format:
Daily intensive lecturing (6 hours day from May 19th to May 23th, Monday to Friday) and working groups. The school will provide an overall number of 6 credits (after attendance of the overall Course and submission of a small project within December 31st, 2014). Partial attendance to the Course will give right to a number of credits proportionally reduced.

Some funds are available to offer financial support to a limited number of selected students (up to 20 in shared double rooms) and young researchers (post-docs in studios for two persons). Please note that the deadline for application has been postponed to 11 April 2014.Updated info about this workshop can also be found at
