Description

This volume presents original research papers and expository articles from the conference in honor of Walter A. Strauss' sixtieth birthday held at Brown University in Providence (RI). The book offers a collection of original papers and expository articles mainly devoted to the study of nonlinear wave equations. The articles cover a wide range of topics, including scattering theory, dispersive waves, classical field theory, mathematical fluid dynamics, kinetic theory, stability theory, and variational methods. The book offers a nice cross-section of current trends and research directions in the study of nonlinear wave equations and related topics.
