5th Women in Mathematics Summer School on Mathematical Theories towards Environmental Models, 27 May -1 June 2013, Trieste - Italy
Our planet is the setting for dynamical systems of all sorts, including geophysical, atmospheric, biological and the human processes. It is an excellent example of a forced, dissipative non-equilibrium system dominated by highly nonlinear processes and featuring multi-scale interactions, so that its understanding can be approached using the tools of dynamical systems and partial differential equations theories. The school aims at approaching different core problems of pure and applied mathematics in a multidisciplinary perspective. It will consist of short courses focusing on four topics of the current research: Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations, Dynamical Systems and Bifurcation Theory with Applications to the Dynamics of Planet Earth, Isogeometric Analysis and Numerical Analysis of Environmental Flows.
