Andrew’s research interests are in spectral and scattering theory, partial differential equations, microlocal analysis and semiclassical analysis.

Biography: Australian National University

Topic:  Mathematical Breakthroughs in Wave Propagation

Abstract: I will talk on aspects of my successful 2022 Laureate Fellowship application with the same title.
I will concentrate on one part of the proposal, concerning the nonlinear Schrödinger equation (NLS). Recently, new powerful techniques have been developed for solving nonlinear wave equations, and I will explain why I believe these can lead to breakthroughs in the study of NLS and other nonlinear wave equations.

Structure: 45 minutes seminar with 15 minutes question time
