Nonlinearity and Randomness in Complex Systems
The State University of
New York at Buffalo, Department of Mathematics
March 31 - April 2, 2006
Important problems in applied mathematics
often possess both a rich mathematical structure and concrete physical
or technological applications. This interdisciplinary workshop aims at
bringing together researchers from academia,
industry and national laboratories
working on problems at the interface between science, engineering and
applied mathematics. Several topics will be addressed, both from
from practical perspectives. Particular emphasis will be given to
theory and applications in
nonlinear optics, lasers
and optical fiber communications.
The workshop is sponsored
by the Department of Mathematics and the College of Arts and Sciences,
State University of New York at Buffalo.
