This volume presents original research papers and expository articles from the conference in honor of Walter A. Strauss's sixtieth birthday held at Brown University in Providence (RI). The book offers a collection of original papers and expository articles mainly devoted to the study of nonlinear wave equations. The articles cover a wide range of topics, including scattering theory, dispersive waves, classical field theory, mathematical fluid dynamics, kinetic theory, stability theory, and variational methods. The book offers a nice cross-section of current trends and research directions in the study of nonlinear wave equations and related topics.


Graduate students and research mathematicians and physicists interested in partial differential equations.
