Abstract:

The main goal of the research discussed in this conference is a mathematical understanding of nonlinear dynamics appropriate for models of continua which admit phase transitions. The mathematical problems that were discussed addressed the general questions. How do nonlinear systems relax to equilibrium How do interfaces and transition zones propagate The speakers represented different aspects of the subject. The group included theoreticians as well as numerical analysts. The conference was very well attended and quite successful.
