AIM workshop - Mathematical questions in wave turbulence theory

15th May 2017 - 19th May 2017
American Institute of Mathematics, San Jose, Calif, United States


This workshop, sponsored by AIM and the NSF, will be devoted to mathematical questions in weak turbulence theory. This branch of equilibrium statistical physics tries to describe the dynamics of nonlinear waves over long time intervals, or in the presence of a random forcing. It was developed mostly by physicists and applied mathematicians in the past century, but very little is known rigorously in this field. It is our aim to advance its mathematical understanding.
