02.-06.06.2014: Visit of Shmuel Fishman.

Shmuel Fishman (Technion, Haifa, Israel) visits us and will give a talk about "Chaotic Analysis of the Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation (NLSE)" on Tuesday @9.15 in room 4.18 in our group seminar.

Abstract:
The Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation (NLSE) with a random potential
exhibits competition between Anderson localization resulting of
randomness and spreading enhanced by the non-linearity. In spite of
extensive research it is not clear if a wave-packet that is initially
localized, spreads to infinity for asymptotically long time. The
various conflicting results that were obtained will be discussed
critically.
