The Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics will host the "New Trends and Emerging Techniques in Compressible Fluid Dynamics" workshop in Hangzhou, China from August 27 to September 1, 2023.

Compressible flows are ubiquitous in nature with a broad spectrum of applications and they are important objects of the study in mathematical and physical sciences and engineering. Despite the old history and physical importance, mathematical understanding of the system of partial differential equations describing dynamics of inviscid compressible fluids such as the Euler equations remain challenging.

In recent years, several deep and unexpected results were obtained by using a variety of elaborate techniques from distinct communities, which generated significant interests in the field and led to major advances in the mathematical study of inviscid compressible flows including non-uniqueness of weak solutions, the stability of very rough solutions, the formation of singularities, and the study of free boundary problems.

The workshop brings together experts in compressible fluid dynamics from diverse communities, creates an inclusive atmosphere where the latest developments, ideas and techniques are vigorously discussed, and provides a unique opportunity to foster a new community with a large set of skills. Another important goal of the workshop is to introduce early career researchers to this active area of research and to provide a training and networking opportunity.

The Institute for Advanced Study in Mathematics (IASM) in Hangzhou, China, and the Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) in Banff, are collaborative Canada-US-Mexico ventures that provide an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station in Banff is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
