Roger's favourite nonlinear wave:


Scope: The meeting will be devoted to all aspects of nonlinear waves in fluids, including water waves, internal waves, wave - current interactions, effects of variable environment and rotation, resonant wave interactions, wave instabilities, etc., with applications in established areas such as geophysical fluids dynamics and new areas such as thin films and complex fluids.
