### Theory and Applications of Model Equations for Surface Water Waves

- Series
- School of Mathematics Colloquium
- Time
- Thursday, October 22, 2009 - 11:00 for 1 hour (actually 50 minutes)
- Location
- Skiles 269
- Speaker
- Jerry Bona – University of Illinois at Chicago

After a brief account of some of
the history of this classical subject,
we indicate how such models are derived.
Rigorous theory justifying the models
will be discussed and the conversation
will then turn to some applications.
These will be drawn from questions
arising in geophysics and coastal
engineering, as time permits.
