Linear and nonlinear hyperbolic partial differential equations (PDEs) arise in basically all sciences (physics, chemistry, medicine, engineering, astronomy, etc.). In physics, they model several important phenomena, from propagation of waves in a medium (for instance propagation of seismic waves during an earthquake) to refraction in crystals and gas-dynamics. The purpose of this UK network on hyperbolic equations and related topics is to bring together the expertise on hyperbolic equations of three different mathematics department (Edinburgh, Imperial, Loughborough), to strengthen the existing research collaborations and to create new ones. Three 1-day workshops per year are planned focused on different approaches to hyperbolic equations and related topics (inverse problems, kinetic theory, imaging, microlocal analysis, general relativity, etc.).
