Modern Perspectives in Applied Mathematics: A Meeting in Honor of Andrew J. Majda
May 18-22, 2009, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, WWH 109

A conference in honor of Andrew J. Majda on his 60th birthday. Stochastic and multi-scale modeling is becoming a main driving force in many scientific and engineering disciplines. Many problems in sciences involve quantifying the behavior of complex systems with a very large number of degrees of freedom. These systems interact on a large span of scales and require to incorporate stochastic effects to account for model errors and/or disturbances from under-resolved scales. This conference will discuss recent advances in this area by bringing together leading experts in nonlinear partial differential equations, atmosphere and ocean dynamics, turbulence, combustion, and data assimilation.
