The insurgence of turbulent vs integrable behavior is a classical topic of fundamental importance in physics, mathematics. The goal of this school/ workshop is to bring together different communities working in nearby topics of wave dynamics to foster interactions which can benefit each group.
The relevant equations describing these phenomena come from dispersive partial differential equations and fluid dynamics, describing propagation and interaction of nonlinear wave phenomena in dispersive media, encompassing both dynamic and stochastic aspects of wave propagation. Recently, several theoretical and experimental outcomes in the field of dispersive and fluids equations have opened up new areas for research, with intriguing open issues in both theory and applications. On one side, experimental and theoretical physicists working on insurgence of turbulent dynamics, rogue wave formations, experimental fluid dynamics.  On the other side, mathematicians working analytically on integrable systems, soliton gases, stability and perturbation  theory, KAM and normal forms of dispersive and fluids equations, and rigorous derivations of wave kinetic equations and (generalized) hydrodynamic equations.

  • Turbulent dynamics and wave kinetic equations
  • Rogue wave formations
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Soliton gas and  generalized hydrodynamic
  • KAM  theory and normal forms
