Eikonal and transport PDE


Speaker: Craig Evans, Berkeley
Location: 202 Wellman
Start time: Fri, Dec 1 2000, 4:10PM

Formal WKB type asymptotics generate a paired nonlinear first order PDE and a linear transport PDE from Schrodinger's equation. I will discuss some completely different settings in which these two PDE come up together and explain some consequences.
