Tel Aviv University, Mathematics Colloquium ******************************************* Hello everyone, The next colloquium talk will be held on: Monday, 29/10/2012, 12:15, Schreiber 006, Tel Aviv University. Speaker: Boris Dubrovin (SISSA & Steklov Math. Institute) Title: On geometrical structures and properties of solutions to Hamiltonian systems of partial differential equations The abstract is given below. Tea and coffee at 12:00, same room. Hope to see you there. For information about future colloqiua, see <http://www.math.tau.ac.il/~ostrover/colloquium/colloq2012.html> Yours, Yaron -------------- Abstract: In the talk we will consider Hamiltonian perturbations of hyperbolic systems of partial differential equations (PDEs) with one spatial variable. The deformation theory of integrable PDEs will also be discussed. We also consider the behaviour of solutions to such systems at the point of "phase transition" from regular to oscillatory behaviour. --------------------------------------------------------- Technion Math Net-2 (TECHMATH2) Editor: Michael Cwikel <techm@math.technion.ac.il> Announcement from: <ostrover@post.tau.ac.il>
