NSF-CBMS Regional Research Conference in the Mathematical Sciences, June 17-21, 2013

The Global Behavior of Solutions to Critical Nonlinear Wave Equations

Carlos Kenig

Principal Lecturer

Professor Carlos Kenig (University of Chicago)

The main topic of the lectures will be about issues of local and global well-posedness, scattering, finite-time blow-up and soliton resolution for a class of non-linear dispersive equations, namely the focusing, energy-critical nonlinear wave equation and the related energy-critical co-rotational wave maps into the sphere. In addition to the 10 main lectures by Professor Kenig, lectures will be presented by other experts in these fields.
