Hyperbolic & Dispersive PDE Seminar

The mathematics of wave turbulence, from microscopic systems to turbulent spectra

Pierre Germain, Imperial College London

Location:  Online (zoom)
Date & time: Thursday, 20 October 2022 at 2:00PM - 3:00PM

The theory of wave turbulence has been developed by physicists to describe the turbulent behavior of (weakly) nonlinear wave equations. Much like the famous Kolmogorov theory, this theory is able to predict the distribution of energy in turbulent systems; but it is much more precise, in that it gives a kinetic equation governing energy exchanges. From a mathematical viewpoint, this is a very attractive entry point into the mysterious world of turbulence. I will present recent progress on these questions.
