MATH Seminar: “The Fokas method for linear PDEs”, Konstantinos Kalimeris, 6:00PM April 14 (EN)

You are cordially invited to the Analysis Seminar organized by the Department of Mathematics.

Speaker: Konstantinos Kalimeris (Academy of Athens)
“The Fokas method for linear PDEs”

Abstract: In almost every textbook for Partial Differential Equations(PDEs), solutions of linear PDEs for specific initial and boundary value problems (IBVPs) are presented. Many of these problems are considered classical, since they provide a paradigm of how the several methods for solving linear PDEs are applied. In this talk we revisit some of these classical problems using the Unified Transform (UT) method, also known as the Fokas method. Our goal is twofold: (a) show some major limitations of the classical transform methods (b) give the outline of a new unified methodology which overcomes these limitations and provides effective pathways for the relevant analytical and numerical solutions. This talk is also appropriate for undergraduate students with basic knowledge in Complex Analysis and PDEs.
