3rd International Workshop on Nonlinear and Modern Mathematical Physics 9-11 April 2015, Cape Town, South Africa
This workshop is being held in Muizenberg, Cape Town, South Africa from 9 to 11 April 2015, and co-organized by AIMS South Africa, the University of South Florida and North West University. The primary goals of the workshop are to promote and encourage cooperation, understanding and collaboration in the nonlinear mathematical physics community and to bring together mathematicians and physicists that attempt to understand nonlinear phenomena and solve nonlinear problems. The workshop aims to survey recent advances on a wide range of topics of current interest in nonlinear and modern mathematical physics including: integrable and near-integrable equations, physical and engineering applications such as nonlinear optics, Bose-Einstein condensates and fluid dynamics, and numerical aspects of nonlinear phenomena. The workshop will provide a forum for scientists and researchers worldwide to present their latest results and a means to discuss their recent research with each other.
For further information on the workshop, please visit the related website.
