Nonlinear Waves and Relativity

29.04.2024 09:00 - 21.06.2024 18:00


The aim of the thematic programme is to present the state-of-the-art and to discuss future challenges in the areas of dispersive partial differential equations and mathematical relativity. In particular, we would like to stimulate interaction between these closely related but distinct fields.  General relativity is a classical but highly active area of research in mathematical physics with a long tradition in Vienna. The field of dispersive partial differential equations, on the other hand, is still relatively new but has become a cornerstone of modern analysis. Both areas have seen spectacular developments in the last 20 years. The overall goal of the program is to foster mutual stimulation and interaction in order to open new directions of research.
