John von Neumann Lecture

On some (modern) Problems in Applied Differential Equations (MA 5323)

Contents:
We present snapshots from modern research in applied partial differential equations:
1) semiclassical limits in quantum mechanics: Wigner functions and Wigner measures, WKB (high frequency) asymptotics, Bohmian measures
2) modeling of price formation in economic markets: free boundaries, Boltzmann-type models and their scaling limits
3) network formation in biology: a reaction-diffusion system exhibiting turing instability and some other interesting phenomena
4) modeling of human crowds: the Hughes (fluid-type) model, its scaling limits and connection to mean field games.
