Subject: HYP. Conf. in Aachen

Hyperbolic Problems, Theory, Numerical Methods and Applications -
Second International Conference, RWTH Aachen, March, 14-18, 1988
2nd Announcement and 1st Call for Papers

The first international conference on Hyperbolic Problems was held
in St. Etienne, in 1986. The proceedings were published in the
series: Lecture Notes in Mathematics (Springer, Heidelberg 1987).
Systems of nonlinear hyperbolic problems play an important role in
science and technology, e.g. aerodynamics, multiphasic flows with
cavitation, nonlinear waves in solids, flow in porous media, plasma
physics, astrophysics, combustion problems, nonequilibrium flows,
extraction, biology. In the last few years, significant advances
have been made in the exact and approximate solution of systems of
nonlinear hyperbolic equations and their applications. The aim of
the conference is to bring together scientists in the field for a
presentation of recent results and to discuss future research. The
main topics are:
1. Theory of nonlinear hyperbolic systems
2. Numerical methods for solving these systems
3. Applications.

Call for Papers
At the conference we will have invited 40 minutes lectures and
contributed 40 minutes lectures and 20 minutes talks. Contribu-
tions are sought in the above mentioned areas. The abstract should
be at least two pages and at most 4 pages including figures and
references. 40 minutes lectures have to be of interest for all par-
ticipants of the conference. The scientific committee will select
the papers. When submitting the abstract please note that we intend
to provide the participants at the beginning of the conference with
the abstracts. Hence it would be helpful to give pertinent referen-
ces as well as information which is difficult for the audience to
write down during your presentation.
If after the refereeing process changes of the abstracts are neces-
sary the final version should be in our hands by January 20, 1988.
