Workshop "Trends in variational evolution"

Wednesday, February 21st 2018

BZ 9th floor
Faculty of Mathematics, University of Vienna
Oskar-Morgenstern-Platz, 1
Variational evolution problems are almost ubiquitous in applications and have been considered in connection with fluid dynamics, phase transitions, thin films, quantum models, nonlinear diffusion and transport problems, chemical reactions, rate-independent phenomena, and material modeling, just to mention a few hot topics. The workshop is intended to present contemporary research directions in variational evolution models and methods.
