Colloquium Series Seminar

On the rigorous derivation of the wave kinetic equation
Tuesday, January 14, 2020
4:00-5:00 PM
1360 East Hall Map
A fundamental question in the theory of statistical mechanics of nonlinear waves (often called "wave turbulence theory"), is the rigorous justification of the so-called Wave Kinetic Equation (WKE) starting from Hamiltonian first principles (usually given by a nonlinear dispersive or hyperbolic PDE). This is a monumental mathematical problem featuring aspects from PDE analysis, probability, combinatorics, and even analytic number theory. We will discuss some recent advances on this problem, focusing on a recent joint work with Yu Deng (USC).
