College Colloquium Friday, Feb 8


The next college colloquium will be a presentation with Zhijun (George) Ojao, Ph. D., Professor of Mathematics, Graduate Program and GAANN Fellowships Program Director at UTPA, with a lecture titled "Integrable Peakon Equations"

Date: Friday, February 8, 2013
Time: 1:00 p.m.
Location: SETB 2.336

Faculty and students are invited to attend.


In this talk he will introduce a peaked soliton (peakon) equation, a typical shallow water wave equation, and present a basic approach how to get peakon solutions. the peakon equation is called the Camassa-Holm(CH), which is actually able to be derived from the well-known Navier-Stokes alpha model. He will show the background of the CH equation with some integrability properties. Interesting thing is that an integrable equation may have non-classical solutions. In the talk, he will illustrate this feature through the integrable CH equation. Later, he will take the CH equation as a typical example to show how the peakon solutions.
