Mathematics Colloquium

Blow-Up Global Existence for Dispersive Critical Problems

Speaker: Frank Merle, Universite Cergy-Pontoise & IHES

Location: Warren Weaver Hall 1302

Date: Monday, February 7, 2011, 3:45 p.m.


We will give a review on various problems to relate existence of soliton for dispersive problems to dynamical properties of solutions of the equation. We will illustrate this relation in the case of nonlinear Schrodinger, wave, and generalised KdV equations.
