School of Mathematical Sciences hosts research workshop on “Nonlinear Dispersive Waves”

2 May 2023

A workshop featuring twelve leading international researchers from seven different countries took place at the School of Mathematical Sciences.

This event presented a number of exciting recent developments in the broad field of nonlinear dispersive waves, with a particular emphasis on waves arising in the ocean and atmosphere. The workshop, organised by Dr David Henry, was run on a hybrid-basis and achieved a global reach of over 60 participants from 17 countries and six continents—confirming the adage that mathematics is the universal language of science.

The workshop was formally launched by Dr Kevin Hayes (Head of School of Mathematical Sciences) and Professor Sarah Culloty (Head of College of SEFS), who warmly welcomed the attendees—in particular international visitors and participants—and who also emphasised the importance of fundamental mathematical research in providing us with the tools to better understand what is going on in the ocean environment, and its resulting impact on sustainability and climate issues.

Two days of stimulating and diverse presentations followed, with speakers spanning the spectrum from pure to applied mathematical research.

The invited speakers were: Prof. Didier Clamond (Université Côte d’Azur, France), Prof. Adrian Constantin (University of Vienna, Austria), Prof. Olivia Constantin (University of Vienna, Austria), Prof. Joachim Escher (Leibniz University Hannover, Germany), Prof. Delia Ionescu-Kruse (IMAR, Romania), Prof. Rossen Ivanov (TU Dublin), Prof. David Lannes (University of Bordeaux, France), Dr. Bogdan Matioc (University of Regensburg, Germany), Prof. Emilian Parau (University of East Anglia, UK), Prof. Jens Rademacher (University of Hamburg, Germany), Dr. Raphael Stuhlmeier (University of Plymouth, UK), and Prof. Samuel Walsh (University of Missouri, US).

These scientific talks and the resulting discussions and interactions were greatly enjoyed by a diverse audience of researchers ranging from graduate students, upwards.

This workshop was kindly supported by funding from the School of Mathematical Sciences, the Science Foundation Ireland, and the Irish Mathematical Society. The proceedings of this workshop will be published in a forthcoming book volume by Birkhäuser.
