Colloquium-Some almost sharp scattering results for the cubic nonlinear wave equation

Title: Some almost sharp scattering results for the cubic nonlinear wave equation

Speaker:   Benjamin Dodson, John Hopkins University

Date and Time: Tuesday, January 31,  2017, 3:00-4:00pm

Place: Rome 771

Abstract: In this talk we will discuss some scattering results for the cubic nonlinear wave equation. We will prove these results for radial data nearly lying in the critical Sobolev space. We prove this using hyperbolic coordinates. 

Short Bio: Prof. Ben Dodson is an assistant professor of mathematics at John Hopkins University who made a breakthrough in the scattering theory of global solutions in the nonlinear wave-like equations when he was at UC-Riverside for a year after graduating from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 2009. His did his postdoctoral studies at UC-Berkeley.
