Mini-symposium (MS)

MS6: Recent Developments on Partial Differential Equations and Applications

Organizers: Loc Nguyen, University of North Carolina at Charlotte

                     Dinh-Liem Nguyen, Kansas State University

Abstract: The area of Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) is an important research topic in both pure and applied mathematics. It is also an interdisciplinary area that involves Physics, Engineering, Biology, and many other fields. The goal of this mini-symposium is to bring together researchers working on different aspects of the field to discuss recent and new results in the field such as (1) the existence of unique or multiple solutions to PDEs, (2) regularity theory for PDEs, and (3) inverse problems for PDEs. Another goal of the mini-symposium is to promote idea exchange as well as potential future collaborations.
