Nonlinear Analysis of Continuum Theories: Statics and Dynamics

8th April 2013 to 12th April 2013

Organisers: John Ball (University of Oxford), Fanghua Lin (Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences) and Epifanio Virga (Università degli Studi di Pavia).

Workshop Theme

This workshop will discuss recent advances in the nonlinear analysis of both static and dynamic models of liquid crystals, focussing on such issues as existence, regularity, multiplicity, asymptotic behaviour and stability of solutions, how different models are related, and the description of defects.
