From September 3 to September 7, 2018 — Summer School

Dissipative dynamical systems and applications

The aim of the school is to draw an up-to-date picture of the research in the field of infinite dimensional dissipative dynamical systems. This geometric approach allows to analyze many models in mathematics, physics, economics, engineering and other disciplines, where the dissipation results in the confinement of the relevant long term dynamics in small portions of the phase-space. The three lecturers are expert on both the theoretical and the applied treatment of this research topic, as they all contributed in the assesment of the more suitable objects in the description of the longterm dynamics, as well as they applied their abstract results to interesting and challenging models, for instance, in material sciences and image reconstruction.

The program of the school will consist of three mini-courses of six hours each and selected contributed talks. The courses are:

  • “Equations with memory” by Monica Conti (Politecnico of Milano)
  • “The Cahn-Hilliard equation in phase separation” by Alain Miranville (Université de Poitiers, France, and University of Xiamen, China)
  • “Evolution equations with singular nonlinear terms” by Giulio Schimperna (University of Pavia)

The School is sponsored by

  • FAR2017 (Scientific Coordinator: Stefania Gatti)
  • MIUR (FFABR) “Fondo per il Finanziamento delle Attività Base di Ricerca” Michela Eleuteri (2018)

Organizers: Michela Eleuteri (UNIMORE) and Stefania Gatti (UNIMORE)
