Theory of Water Waves (Spitalfields Day)


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

As part of the programme “Theory of Water Waves” the Isaac Newton Institute will be holding a Spitalfields Day on 23 July 2014. This special event consists of four lectures surveying the state of the art in selected areas of the rigorous mathematical theory of water waves. The lectures will be accessible to a general mathematical audience, including graduate students.

Invited speakers will include:

  • Groves, Mark, (Loughborough, Saarland),
    Three-dimensional water waves

  • Schneider, Guido, (Stuttgart),
    Validity and non-validity of the NLS approximation for the water wave problem - Recent developments and open problems

  • Shkoller, Steve , (Oxford),
    Interface singularities for the Euler equations

  • Varvaruca, Eugene , (Reading),
    Singularities of steady free surface water flows

Financial Support

There are limited funds available to assist in the travel cost of research students. If you require support towards travel please advise an estimated amount in the space provided on the online Registration form.
