Cookies or equivalent are served before and during the meeting. Some weeks participants give presentations. All presentations are informal. Questions and interactions are encouraged. If you have suggestions for speakers or are volunteering to give a talk please contact John Carter, Bernard Deconinck, Jeffrey DiFranco or Nathan Kutz . In other weeks, we read parts of classic papers.



The Nonlinear Waves Research Group deals with a variety of application areas, ranging from Bose-Einstein condensates and nonlinear optics to water waves. Mathematical methods useful in these areas and others are considered as well.
