Hannes Stuke

Additional information / Pre-requisites

The seminar will take place from 08.10.2016 - 13.10.2016 in the Sächsische Schweiz (Blockseminar).

The discussion of the topics will take place on 19.07.2016 at 12.15 in seminar room 140.



In this seminar we want to address the phenomenon of blow-up in ordinary differential and partial differential equations. Blow-up means, that solutions become unbounded in finite time, which leads to many interesting questions, e.g.

  • What is the mathematical framework to define “blow-up”?
  • Are there different types? Can we categorize them?
  • How does the blow-up look like? Can we quantify it?
  • Can we continue solutions after blow-up?
