BoND, granted by ANR

October 15, 2013 - October 14, 2017

BoND is a non-thematic ANR project granted by the French Agence Nationale de la Recherche (October 15, 2013 - October 14, 2017). The acronym BoND stands for Boundaries, Numerics and Dispersion.

The members of the ANR Project BoND belong to different partners.

First event: Winter school Nonlinear dispersive waves:
theory, numerics and applications
, Les Houches (Mont Blanc valley)

February 16-21, 2014

This winter school is concerned with the modeling of physical phenomena in which dispersion is predominant compared to other effects such as diffusion. Specific fields of applications are nonlinear optics, oceanography, hydraulics, and superfluidity. Mathematical and numerical issues include: determination and discretization of boundary conditions; propagation of interfaces; asymptotic models; qualitative properties of remarkable wave trains such as solitons, periodic waves like Stokes waves or roll waves, hydraulic jumps and tidal bores.

The program will consist of a series of mini-courses on the themes mentioned above, which will be intended for an audience of graduate students in applied mathematics or physics, a few, more specialized invited talks, some contributed talks.
