We are the CAPDE Millenium Nucleus Center for the Analysis of Partial Differential Equations (from spanish Núcleo Milenio Centro para el Análisis de Ecuaciones en Derivadas Parciales), a joint research group in Mathematics composed by researches from several Chilean universities and institutions.

Our research program is constituted by challenging problems of high current interest in the Partial Diferential Equations (PDE) community.

Its analysis is one of the most active branches of modern mathematics and it focuses on the continuous modeling of complex phenomena in nature. Seemingly simple PDEs hide an incredible richness in the structure of their solution sets. Finding a general theory that describes them may be impossible, given the high complexity of those objects. Natural, often difficult goals are to shed light on qualitative features of the equations and to find families of solutions that enjoy geometrically meaningful patterns.

Threatre play “Love, Equations and Geometry”

April 29th, 2016|0 Comments

The  threatre play “Love, Equations and Geometry ” is adressed to a general audience, especially young people.  This play, which is organized by the mathematician and Uruguayan playwright Omar Gil (also an expert in nonlinear PDEs ) and the Chilean theater company “La Coraje “, seeks to wake the interest in mathematics, scientific curiosity and appreciation of the beauty of this discipline. It represents human and daily situations through the sharp dialogues of a couple. The idea is to adapt, with emphasis on mathematical analysis and geometry, the hit play of the same name that has already been performed by this company in Chile . This activity is supported by the programme EXPLORA, which is carried out by Conicyt.
