This volume presents the state of the art in several directions of research conducted by renowned mathematicians who participated in the research program on Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations at the Centre for Advanced Study at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, Oslo, Norway, during the academic year 2008-09.

The main theme of the volume is nonlinear partial differential equations that model a wide variety of wave phenomena. Topics discussed include systems of conservation laws, compressible Navier-Stokes equations, Navier-Stokes-Korteweg type systems in models for phase transitions, nonlinear evolution equations, degenerate/mixed type equations in fluid mechanics and differential geometry, nonlinear dispersive wave equations (Korteweg-de Vries, Camassa-Holm type, etc.), and Poisson interface problems and level set formulations.


Graduate students and research mathematicians interested in partial differental equations and nonlinear analysis.
