Mathematical challenges of nonlinear waves and interfacial dynamics


This Special Interest Group develops and promotes new mathematical approaches and techniques to model nonlinear phenomena in waves and interfacial dynamics. Our strong interdisciplinary expertise offers a unique opportunity to create a UK group of excellence in research on nonlinear waves and interfacial phenomena, from microscopic to macroscopic scales.

MATLAB Mini-Workshops

Here you can find the lecture notes and problem sheets of the MATLAB mini-workshop we are running throughout our SIG meetings.

1. MATLAB INTRO (Loughborough, 25th Sept. 2017)
This is a general introduction to MATLAB: variable definition, arrays, functions, plotting, "for" loops and numerical solutions of differential equations.

Problem Sheet


KdV Solver


2. KDV AND OSTROVSKY EQUATIONS (Loughborough, 23rd June 2018)
These are more advanced codes to solve nonlinear partial differential equations
