Aims and scope


This workshop will address the interplay between boundary conditions and transport or dispersive phenomena. A central topic will be the modelling of physical processes in which wave propagation is mainly governed by dispersion, be it encoded either in the underlying governing equations or in the chosen numerical discretization, and wave breaking that comes from the nonlinear features of the physical process. The model equations that will be considered range from toy linear models such as the transport, Schrödinger or Airy equations, to complex, nonlinear systems such as the Euler-Korteweg, Boussinesq, Green-Naghdi or the full water wave equations, as arising in coastal oceanography. We wish to bring together experts in modelling issues, analysis of partial differential equations, numerical analysis and scientific computing in order to foster exchanges between various view points.


The workshop is part of the thematic semester Modelling, numerical analysis and scientific computing in PDEs organized by the Labex CIMI and will also serve as the closing conference of the ANR project NABUCO.
