The summer school and international workshop on water waves and related models is funded by NSF grant DMS- 1700416 and UC Davis. Our objective is the formation of an annual summer school and workshop on waves and fluid dynamics for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, as well as postdoctoral scholars. This event will take place at the Bodega Marine Laboratory (BML) which is part of the University of California at Davis.

BML is a small campus, situated in the Bodega Bay coastal reserve, just feet from the ocean, and about a one-hour drive from San Francisco International Airport. It is an ideal venue for a summer school and workshop on water waves.

This summer school and workshop will be organized around five main themes related to important mathematical and numerical problems in the theory of water waves and a variety of related free-surface problems, involving the Euler and Navier-Stokes equations, the surface quasi-geostrophic equations (SQG), magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), and other related models. These themes are as follows: Initial value problems, Weak solutions and convex integration, Water waves with vorticity and complex domain geometry, Model equations, and Important applications.

We hope to provide an educational opportunity for students and postdocs who are interested in research in water waves and in PDEs arising in fluid and gas dynamics, as well as networking opportunity for students to meet with their peers with diverse background and to interact with active researchers in the field.

The summer school offers three short courses by the following speakers:

  • Thomas Alazard (ENS, France)
  • Alexander Kiselev (Rice University, USA)
  • David Lannes (Universit´e de Bordeaux, France)
