Thematic Einstein Semester on
Energy-based mathematical methods for reactive multiphase flows

Final conference of the Einstein Semester

Structures in Evolution: Theory and Applications

In this 3-day final conference of the Thematic Einstein Semester, we will have lectures from renowned scientists on the topic of energetic-variational mathematical methods and their applications. Each day will feature 3 lectures that are followed by intensive discussions. Since we will send detailed information about the participation only to registered participants, we kindly ask you to register (free of charge).
