  • Scientific program

Recent years have witnessed a strong development in the analytical study of complex fluids (such as liquid crystals or polymeric fluids) through non-trivial extensions of techniques used in classical fluids.

On the other hand questions motivated by the study of complex fluids have raised new and non-trivial questions in the analysis of classical fluids, such as the ones related to singular forcings.

The aim of the workshop is to further stimulate these type of interactions focusing in particular on topics such as: weak solutions for complex physically relevant systems, regularity issues and long-term behaviour.
