Welcome to the Fourteenth International Conference devoted to Theory, Numerics and Applications of Hyperbolic Problems – HYP2012. The objective of the conference is to bring together scientists with interests in the theoretical, applied, and computational aspects of hyperbolic partial differential equations and of related mathematical models appearing in the area of applied sciences. Highlight Topics include:
- Singular limits (zero-viscosity, relaxation, incompressible limit, semi-classical limits) and dispersive equations in mathematical physics.
- Nonlinear wave patterns in multi-dimensions.
- Particle/molecular dynamics (kinetic methods, passage from microscopic to macroscopic, numerical issues in transitional regimes, magneto-hydrodynamics).
- Theory and numerics of multiphases and interfaces (boundary layers, phase boundaries, multiphase wave propagation).
- Transport in complex environments (homogenization, semiclassical limits, scattering in random media, porous media, biological applications, network and traffic flows).
- Control problems for Hyperbolic PDEs (controllability/stabilizability properties, optimal control) and Hamilton-Jacobi related problems.
- General relativity and Geometric PDEs.
As it has been done in the past, a special effort will be made to enable young scientists to attend and to promote their interaction with the more senior researchers. Partial financial support will be available for young mathematicians.
The conference program will include 45-minute plenary lectures, 40-minute invited presentations, and 25-minute contributed presentations. A poster session presentation will be also organized. For details on the submission procedure see the section Call for papers.
