Talk on Soliton Theory


What: Special Lecture on SOLITON THEORY

When: Monday, 14 July 2008, 4:30 - 6:00 p.m.

Where: Ateneo de Manila University
(Room TBA)

Guest Speaker: Prof. Mikhail Kovalyov
Professor of Mathematics
University of Alberta


Prof. Mikhail Kovalyov will talk about some work in Soliton Theory. Solitons are stable formations of nonlinear systems some of which might be described by PDEs, integral equations, graphs, etc. Many "soliton equations" describe motions of fluids and find a great deal of applications in the description of water waves and atmospheric waves e.g. tsunami and rogue waves.Prof. Mikhail Kovalyov is a professor of Mathematics at the University of Alberta, Canada. He obtained his PhD in Mathematics from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. He was in Ateneo, as a visiting professor, in 1993-1994. And it was at this time when he started working on the theory of solitons.
