The workshop ALEX2018 has been held at WIAS and HU Berlin, Germany, from September 24-28, 2018. It addressed new aspects for evolutionary PDEs with a wide range of applications in physics, biology, chemistry, and engineering. The focus has been put on four main topics:
  • Variational methods for continuum mechanics,
  • Gradient and Hamiltonian structures,
  • Dynamical systems,
  • Multiscale problems.
Contributions included modeling of smart materials, interrelation between stochastics and PDEs, multi-particle systems, transition from discrete to continuum, quantum mechanics, and reaction-diffusion systems.

On Wednesday, September 26, a social event took place in the morning and a workshop dinner in the evening.

In the afternoon of the 26th, a special colloquium in honor of the 60th birthday of Professor Alexander Mielke took place at the Humboldt University building Hegelplatz.
