Dalhousie-AARMS AAMP Seminar: Manuela Girotti (Saint Mary’s Uni.)
March 25, 2022 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Title: Asymptotic Analysis of the Interaction Between a Soliton and a Regular Gas of Solitons (a.k.a. Gulliver and the Lilliputians)
Abstract: N. Zabusky coined the word “soliton” in 1965 to describe a curious feature he and M. Kruskal observed in their numerical simulations of the initial-value problem for a simple nonlinear PDE. The first part of the talk will be a broad introduction to the theory of solitons/solitary waves and integrable PDEs (the KdV and modified KdV equation in particular), describing classical results in the field.
The Dalhousie-AARMS Analysis-Applied Math-Physics Seminar takes place on Fridays from 4 – 5 pm Atlantic Time over Zoom. If you would like to attend, please email the organizers for connection details.
