Organizers of this minisymposium are
We are planning this session as a continuation of the special session with the same title that we organized at the Karlsruhe Wave Conference in 2018. The first session was a great success that stimulated many further advances in the area.
We will bring together researchers working on various stability issues for such special solutions of partial differential equations as periodic and solitary waves. All aspects of stability/instability will be discussed, with a special emphasis on methods of spectral theory that lie at the heart of stability analyses. It will be expected of speakers that they will spend some time explaining the perspective underlying their work in order to stimulate further discussion and collaboration in the field.
