3rd IMA Conference on Nonlinearity and Coherent Structures


Northumbria University

Nonlinearity plays an important role in many fields of Science, Engineering and Technology. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers working on aspects of nonlinear phenomena and to encourage interaction between experts from different areas such as Applied Mathematics, Mathematical Analysis, Fluid Dynamics, Engineering and Physics.  Recent theoretical developments, new computational methods and experimental findings will be presented and discussed. We plan to avoid parallel sessions and foster as much as possible communication across the different communities.

Topics of interest

  • Integrable systems and soliton theory
  • Nonlinear waves and nonlinear evolution equations
  • Dispersive hydrodynamics
  • Rogue waves and extreme wave phenomena
  • Instability in nonlinear media
  • Orthogonal polynomials
  • Mathematical biology
  • Coherent structures in shear flows and transition to turbulence


Invited Speakers

  • Professor Gennady El (Northumbria University, UK)
  • Dr Karima Khusnutdinova (Loughborough University, UK)
  • Professor Paul Milewski (University of Bath, UK)
  • Dr Barbara Prinari (University at Buffalo and University of Colorado Colorado Springs, USA)
  • Dr Laurette Tuckerman (PMMH-ESPCI, France)
  • Professor Ken McLaughlin (Colorado State University, USA)
