SIAM Southeastern Atlantic Section Conference

September 18-19, 2021

Mini-symposium (MS)

MS5: PDE, Dynamical Systems and Applications

 Organizers: Selim Sukhtaiev, Auburn University

                      Maggie Han, Auburn University

                      Wenxian Shen, Auburn University

 Abstract: The topics to be discussed in this mini-symposium lie at the interface of partial differential equations, dynamical systems and their applications in mathematical physics, biology and engineering. Concretely, the following themes will be covered:

  1. Stability of nonlinear waves, patterns, on coherent structures arising in Hamiltonian systems
  2. Statistical behavior of thermodynamic systems via Boltzmann equation
  3. Mathematical modeling and analysis of the movement of biological cells in response to chemical gradients
