Dalhousie University Mathematics Colloquium, 2013/14Mathematics Colloquiums are on Mondays, 3:30pm in room 319 in the Chase Building, unless otherwise indicated. There is an alternate time on Thursdays, 2:30pm.
Abstract: Wave phenomena occur on an enormous range of scales, from the sub-quantum mechanical to the astrophysical. This talk will discuss some of the common scale independent features of wave propagation and wave interaction, including detailed descriptions of nonlinear wave collisions and a proposal of a kinetic theory for a regime of wave turbulence.
This talk is jointly organized by Oceanography and Mathematics, and co-sponsored by AARMS.
