Summer School & Workshop Wisla 19

Monday, August 19, 2019 (All day) to Thursday, August 29, 2019 (All day)

Dear enthusiasts of nonlinear PDEs, geometry and critical phenomena, we would like to invite you to participate in Summer School & Workshop Wisla 19 that will take place in Poland on August 18 – August 29, 2019. Details can be found at:


The goal of the forthcoming school is to present recent results in the theory of nonlinear PDEs, their geometry, and applications. The coursers will stress a role of geometrical methods and especially methods of contact geometry to study nonlinear PDEs and methods of their integrability. Various methods of finding and using symmetries and conservation laws will be presented. Especially the following topics will be emphasized: methods of integrability and finding smooth and singular solutions (shock waves). All these methods will be illustrated by applications.


Baltic Institute of Mathematics
43-460 Wisła

The topic of the forthcoming school:
Differential Geometry, Differential Equations, and Mathematical Physics

The speakers will be:

Lychagin Valentin (University of Tromsø, Norway)
How to integrate differential equations.
A survey on various methods of integration nonlinear differential equations based on symmetries, invariants, and differential constrains.

Roubtsov Volodya (University of Angers, France)
Introduction to symplectic and Poisson geometry of integrable systems.
A survey of methods of symplectic and Poisson geometries using to integrate mechanical and Hamiltonian systems.

Slovák Jan (Masaryk University, Czech Republic)
Traktor calculi. An elementary introduction based on classical examples to modern invariant differential calculus related to Cartan geometries.

The topic of the forthcoming workshop:
Geometrical methods in nonlinear PDEs and critical phenomena
Scientific committee:
Lychagin Valentin., Laudal Arnfinn., Krasilshchik Joseph., Kushner Alexei.,  Roubtsov Volodya., Slovák Jan., Roulstone Ian.
The workshop is devoted to various geometrical, analytical and asymptotic methods to study solutions of nonlinear PDEs and especially to various critical phenomena such as shock waves, wavefronts, phase transitions etc. 

The ARRIVAL DAY is August 18.

The DEPARTURE DAY is August 29.
