The Department of Applied Mathematics of the University of Crete and the Archimedes Center for Modeling, Analysis and Computation (ACMAC) are organising a workshop with title:

The workshop will cover mathematical aspects of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation, and its applications in diverse physical settings such as optics and Bose–Einstein condensation both theoretically and experimentally. A list of topics related to the nonlinear Schrödinger equation that are expected to be coved include:

  • Nonlinear waves in periodic and inhomogeneous media
  • Solitons
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Bose–Einstein condensation
  • Riemann–Hilbert problems
  • Semi–classical limits of nonlinear wave equations
  • Stability theory of solitary waves
  • Curved beam dynamics
  • Randomness and disorder
