Programme Theme

Organisers: Adrian Constantin (Department of Mathematics, King's College London, UK, and Faculty of Mathematics, University of Vienna, Austria), Joachim Escher (Institute of Applied Mathematics, Leibniz University Hannover, Germany), Hisashi Okamoto (Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Kyoto University, Japan)

The purpose of this 4-week programme is to bring mathematical analysts and applied mathematicians together, along with engineers, in a venue which will focus on four very active areas of study of surface water waves of large amplitude, where considerable advances were achieved in the last few years:

  • well-posedness
  • regularity properties and the formation of singularities
  • the flow beneath the waves
  • tsunami modelling
