Book Description

This book presents the texts of selected lectures on recent work in the field of nonlinear partial differential equations delivered by leading international experts at the well-established weekly seminar held at the Collège de France. Emphasis is on applications to numerous areas, including control theory, theoretical physics, fluid and continuum mechanics, free boundary problems, dynamical systems, scientific computing, numerical analysis, and engineering. Proceedings of this seminar will be of particular interest to postgraduate students and specialists in the area of nonlinear partial differential equations.
