Recent Developments and Challenges in Interface and Free Boundary Problems

University of Warwick,
Tuesday 25 - Friday 28 March 2014

Organisers: C. Elliott, B. Stinner, G-Q Chen

Free boundary and interface problems are ubiquitous in models using partial differential equations. They are considered as one of the most important directions in the mainstream of the analysis of partial differential equations (PDEs), with an abundance of applications in various sciences and real world problems. In the last two decades, various new ideas, techniques, and methods have been developed, and new important, challenging problems in physics, engineering, industry, finance, biology, and other areas have arisen.

This workshop focuses on recent developments and challenges. It is a satellite meeting of the Newton Institute Programme
