14th International Conference on Hyperbolic Problems (HYP2012)

25-29 June 2012, Padova


The Fourteenth International Conference on "Hyperbolic Problems: Theory, Numerics and Applications" (HYP2012) will be hosted at the University of Padova, on June 25-29, 2012. The objective of this conference is to bring together researchers and students with interests in theoretical and computational aspects of hyperbolic PDEs and of related time-dipendent models in the applied sciences.

The conference will keep the traditional balance of the HYP series, blending theory, numerics and applications. Particular attention will be devoted to the following topics:
Singular limits and dispersive equations in mathematical physics;
Nonlinear wave patterns in multi-dimensions;
Particle/molecular dynamics;
Theory and numerics of multiphases and interfaces;
Transport in complex environments;
Control problems for hyperbolic PDEs and differential games;
General relativity and geometric PDEs.
