Thematic online trimester and international conference « Fifty Years of Kruzhkov Entropy Solutions, and Beyond »

In 1970, appeared the classical paper First-order Quasilinear Equations in Several Independent Variables  by Stanislav N. Kruzhkov, establishing the notion of entropy solutions to scalar conservation laws. Fifty years later, a double scientific event is organized in order to discuss the historical development, the state-of-the-art and the modern trends in study of scalar conservation laws and related systems, as well as the posterity of the ideas and techniques of Kruzhkov entropy solutions.

  • An international conference was initially planned for December 2020 in Tours (France). Due to the world pandemic situation, it is postponed to the period August-December 2021 .

    The Scientific Committee consisting of Alberto Bressan (Penn State University, USA), Constantine Dafermos (Brown University, USA), Edwige Godlewski (Sorbonne University, France), Helge Holden (NTNU Trondheim, Norway), Evgueni Panov (Novgorod State University, Russia), Denis Serre (ENS Lyon, France), Eitan Tadmor (University of Maryland, USA)
    and the Organizing Committee consisting of Boris Andreianov, Guy Barles, François James, Vincent Perrollaz, Abraham Sylla (Institut Denis Poisson, Orléans-Tours, France), Carlotta Donadello (Bourgogne-Franche-Comté University, Besançon, France), Paola Goatin (INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, Nice, France), Siddhartha Mishra (ETH Zürich, Swiss), Nicolas Seguin (Rennes University, France)
    will announce the new dates of the conference in early 2021.

    The financial support to the conference is provided in particular by Institute Denis Poisson (CNRS UMR7013, Orléans-Tours), Seminar for Applied Mathematics ETH Zürich, ANR Nabuco, ANR MFG, GDR MaNU, University of Tours, Region Centre-Val-de-Loire, Tours Metropole,…
  • A thematic trimester consisting of a series of online talks will open the celebration in October-December, 2020.

The talks will take place via the platform BigBlueButton, two times per month, on Tuesdays. Most of the talks will be recorded. The recordings will be made available to the participants of the trimester.
