Title: Competing Forces in Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations
Abstract: Nonlinear PDE’s are interesting and challenging because usually there are competing forces appearing in the phenomenon modeled by the equations. In order to elaborate this point of view, I will discuss several physical models and explain the competition of damping and sources in nonlinear wave equations, the interaction of dispersion and nonlinearity in nonlinear dispersive equations, as well as the relation of diffusion and convection in Navier-Stokes equations. This talk is suitable for mathematicians working in any field.
