ROGUE AND SHOCK WAVES IN NONLINEAR DISPERSIVE MEDIA

SUMMER SCHOOL IN CARGESE

July 6 - 17, 2015

 
 

Rogue waves and shock waves are ubiquitous in various branches of the physical sciences and engineering, ranging from hydrodynamics to optics, acoustics and plasma. Such phenomena have an universal character, i.e., most of the times, they can be described on a common mathematical and physical background. The scope of the school is to get together top-level theoretical physicists, mathematicians and experimentalists working in different fields with the aim of presenting to students and young researchers a unifying concept of rogue and dispersive shock waves. Special attention will be given to the nonlinear dynamics of ocean waves and nonlinear optics where the field of rogue/shock waves has been mostly developed.
