Blow-up phenomena are ubiquitous in mathematical models in the sciences.
Virtually every model including nonlinear terms exhibits solutions which may
form singularities, such as "real" blow-up in chemical reactions, turbulence
in fluid flows, defects in liquid crystals,
formation of Bose-Einstein condensates, flows in porous media, fronts in
thin viscous flows, combustion, chemotaxis and also in geometric flows. The
interest in these phenomena, motivated by a wide variety of applications,
provides scientists from different backgrounds and using different
methodologies with an inspiring common research focus in which the main
language is that of nonlinear partial differential equations.
Based on developments in recent analysis on singularity formation in
semilinear and quasilinear parabolic equations, an area motivated in part by
the early attempts to understand singularity formation in the solutions of
the Navier-Stokes equations and the onset of turbulence in fluid flows, this
workshop reaches out to more general areas in which the occurrence or
non-occurrence of blow-up is a fundamental issue.
Once blow-up is established, the main questions are when, where and how does
it occur, as well as what happens after blow-up. More precisely, in order to
understand the respective mechanisms of singularity formation, it is natural
to determine the time and the spatial set where blow-up occurs, investigate
the blow-up profile in time and space, and decide whether or not an
exploding solution can be continued beyond its blow-up time.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together leading researchers in various
fields related to the analysis of blow-up phenomena, as well as junior
scientists. Among the aspects particularly focused on are the following.
Understanding blow-up phenomena in semilinear parabolic equations
Nonlinear diffusion and singularity formation
Systems of equations, higher order equations and non-dissipative problems
Blow-up in chemotaxis systems
This will be the 7th edition of a series of Euro-Japanese workshops on blow-up phenomena.
The first six editions of this series took place in
