Previous NEEDS Workshops

The previous 11 Workshops of this series have taken place in the same venue in Crete in 1980, 1983, 1989 and 1997; in Gallipoli (Italy) in 1985, 1991 and 1993; in Balaruc-les-Bains (France) in 1987; in Dubna (Russia) in 1990 and 1992; in Los Alamos (USA) in 1994. Information on these 10 Workshops have been reported in: 1. Physica 2D, 545-548 (1981); 2. Physica 11D, 389-391 (1984); 3. Physica 29D, 431-436 (1988); 4. Inverse Problems 3, 775-779 (1987) and Nonlinear Evolutions, edited by J. J. P. Leon, World Scientific, 1988; 5. Nonlinear Evolution Equations and Dynamical Systems, edited by S. Carillo and O. Ragnisco, Research Reports in Physics, Springer, 1990; 6. Inverse Problems 7, 167-173 (1991) and Nonlinear Evolution Equations and Dynamical Systems, NEEDS '90, edited by V. G. Makhankov and O. K. Pashaev, Research Reports in Physics, Springer, 1991; 7. Nonlinear Evolution Equations and Dynamical Systems, edited by M. Boiti, L. Martina and F. Pempinelli, World Scientific, 1992; 8.

Phys. 99,no 2,3, 495-802 (1994); 10. Nonlinear Evolution Equations & Dynamical Systems, NEEDS '94, edited by V. G. Makhankov, A. R. Bishop and D. D. Holm, World Scientific, 1995.

Scope and Topics

The Workshop will, as usual, be interdisciplinary in character, focusing on integrable, near integrable and non integrable dynamical systems (nonlinear ODEs, PDEs, integral equations, maps, automata, etc.), both on their theory and on applications in classical and quantum physics (condensed matter, fluids, plasmas, elementary particles, statistical mechanics, etc.) and in other fields (oceanography, biophysics, population dynamics, etc.). The methods discussed will range from pure mathematics and numerical computations to applicable theories and experiments.
