Background and activities
I am the Principal Investigator of the research project ("Toppforsk") Waves and Nonlinear Phenomena (WaNP). I am the Secretary General of the International Mathematical Union (IMU). On the occasion of my 60th anniversary in 2016 the conference Non-linear PDEs, mathematical physics, and stochastic analysis was hosted here at NTNU. See proceedings Non-Linear Partial Differential Equations, Mathematical Physics, and Stochastic Analysis, European Mathematical Society Publishing House.
Differential equations, mathematical physics; in particular hyperbolic conservation laws and completely integrable systems. Stochastic analysis and flow in porous media.
Spring 2020: MA8105 Nonlinear PDEs and Sobolov Spaces
Fall 2021: TMA4305 Partial Differential Equations
