Statistical mechanics, integrability and dispersive hydrodynamics


we have been made aware of a very convincing phone scam that is focusing on our workshop participants. Participants may be contacted by phone by a firm called Business Travel Management to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes.  This includes a request to enter credit card information.

Please note, INI will never contact you over the phone requesting card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store

If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.

Workshop theme:

The overarching purpose of the workshop is  to generate new collaborations between researchers working in experimental, computational and analytical aspects of nonlinear  dispersive hydrodynamics, randomness and statistical mechanics. In particular, the workshop will focus on the growing field of integrable turbulence, which aims at combining the concepts of randomness and of integrability.

The workshop will be sampled from experimental approaches in optics and hydrodynamics through to theoretical and mathematical questions concerning integrable systems. The main topics will be the statistical description of integrable turbulence, kinetic theory, soliton gases, space-time correlations in integrable and non-integrable lattice systems, thermodynamic properties of random matrix ensembles and nonlinear dispersive systems, the use of inverse scattering transform with random initial data… These problems are of particular interest in the fields of nonlinear optics and of hydrodynamics. The central models discussed in this workshop will be integrable equations such as the one dimensional nonlinear Schrodinger or the Korteweg-de Vries equations. The analysis of non-integrable perturbations induced by high order terms is also a fundamental question.

We expect a balance of researchers from the experimental, computational, and analytical communities, all of whom are committed to considerable time for discussion, with a possibly smaller number of presentations that are designed to address the complementary groups.
