XVIII International Conference on 
WAVES AND STABILITY IN CONTINUOUS MEDIA

June 1, 2015 - June 5, 2015

Grand Hotel San Michele, Cetraro (CS)

The International Conference on Waves and Stability in Continuous Media (WASCOM), now in its XVIII edition, is a biennial international conference on Mathematical Physics.

Since its first edition organized in 1981, this meeting aimed at gathering Italian and foreign researchers interested in stability and wave propagation problems in continuous media.

The meeting will encompass different fields concerning wave propagation, stability problems and modeling problems such as acceleration and shock waves, diffusion processes in biology and in continuum mechanics, kinetics models, irreversible thermodynamics, stochastic processes, group methods, numerical techniques.

The previous conferences were organized in Catania (1981), Cosenza (1983), Bari (1985), Taormina (1987), Sorrento (1989), Acireale (1991), Bologna (1993), Palermo (1995), Bari (1997), Vulcano (1999), Porto Ercole (2001), Villasimius (2003), Acireale (2005), Scicli (2007), Mondello (2009), Brindisi (2011), Levico (2013).

The XVIII WASCOM conference is organized under the auspices of Physics Department and Environmental and Territorial Engineering and Chemical Engineering Department of the University of Calabria, Gruppo Nazionale per la Fisica Matematica (GNFM) of INDAM.

Main Topics

  • Dynamical Systems
  • Linear and Nonlinear Stability for Reaction-Diffusion Systems and in Fluid Dynamics
  • Wave Propagation and Non-equilibrium Thermodynamics
  • Classic and Quantum Formulation of Extended Thermodynamics with Applications to Real Gases and Solid State Physics
  • Numerical Applications in Fluid dynamics

A Special Session of the Conference will be in honour of prof. Tai-Ping Liu in the occasion of his 70th birthday.

Conference fee for this edition is 100 see Registration and Submission.
