Blow-up and Global Dynamics in Nonlinear Dispersive PDEs

Organizers of this minisymposium are

This minisymposium focusses on the behaviour of solutions of nonlinear dispersive equations for large times. There is the fundamental dichotomy of global existence vs. blow-up in finite time. In the first case, one aims at describing the asymptotic behaviour of global solutions, such as scattering or resolution into solitons. In the second case, the objective is a precise description of the blow-up behaviour, including stable blow-up mechanisms and threshold phenomena.
