UK Nonlinear News, May 2002
This meeting was held to mark the establishment of the Centre for Nonlinear Mathematics and Applications in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Loughborough University. (see http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/ma and follow links). The meeting was attended by between 70-80 people from all parts of the UK, who were privileged to hear four excellent one-hour talks from the invited speakers.
|Professor Thanasis Fokas||University of Cambridge|
|A new method for boundary-value problems|
|Dr. Franco Vivaldi||Queen Mary , University of London|
|Piece-wise affine dynamical systems|
|Professor John Hogan||University of Bristol|
|Theory and applications of piece-wise linear dynamical systems|
|Professor John Toland||University of Bath|
|Mathematical developments in Stokes-wave theory|
The meeting concluded with a brief reception at which the Vice-Chancellor of Loughborough University, Professor David Wallace, formally opened the Centre. It is planned to hold several similar meetings on various specific themes which involve nonlinear mathematics and applications during this and subsequent years.
