Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to talk about and explain recent topics of partial differential equations, in particular dissipative and dispersive phenomena.

Moreover, they are able to give insight in modern questions of research and to give intelligible talks

about their own research.

Subject of course

Diffusive and dispersive effects in nonlinear partial differential equations, including e.g. diffusive quantum models, reaction-diffusion equations, financial models, Landau-Lifshitz-Gilbert equations, Schroedinger equations, Camassa-Holm equations, Maxwell equations, and Wigner equations

Teaching methods

Expert scientists and PhD-students will give weekly talks. The students prepare a talk about their research and present it to the plenum. They receive a feedback from the participants afterwards.
