CIMPA School and Workshop on


Hammamet, Tunisia

March 22-31, 2012


The nonlinear evolution equations have many applications, in particular in physics, chemistry and biology. This domain interests a wide mathematical community in the world. Besides the theoretical aspects, the modelling has numerous applications and became a major tool in nonlinear evolution equations. It is now considered as about an important domain of development. The various recent mathematical methods and the last most significant progress in this domain need to be exchanged and developed with the countries of North Africa, the Mediterranean Basin and the other nearby countries.

The school aims at presenting the results and the recent developments on nonlinear evolution equations. It aims at allowing the researchers and the students of Master's degree level to acquire a basic training in the theory of evolution equations in its theoretical and practical aspects. This school will cover a wide class of evolution equations including parabolic PDE, hyperbolic PDE, fluid mechanics and the applications in biology. The school will constitute a very interesting thematic opening for the young researchers. It will also be a tremendous tool of exchange between researchers worldwide.
