Asymptotic analysis of Riemann-Hilbert problems and applications

Presented by: 
Ken McLaughlin Colorado State University
Monday 28th October 2019 - 14:30 to 15:30
INI Seminar Room 1
It is hoped that 1/2 of this presentation will be introductory, explaining with examples how Riemann-Hilbert problems characterize solutions of some interesting questions in mathematical physics, and some of the complex variables techniques that are exploited. The presentation will end with an explanation of results with Manuela Girotti (John Abbot College, Montreal), Tamara Grava (Bristol and SISSA), and Robert Jenkins (Univ. of Central Florida) concerning the asymptotic behavior of an infinite collection of solitons under the Korteweg -de Vries equation.
