Focus of research:

Extended dynamical systems are equations on unbounded domains. For example, in the discrete space / continous time setting, they are systems of infinitely many equations - infinite lattices in 1d or higher dimensions. In the continous space/time setting, we consider partial differential equations on unbounded domains.

Such systems are important, as they model a number of physical phenomena for which the size of the domain is very large as compared to the local dynamics.

We developed a number of tools to deal with such systems. For example, for "extended gradient systems", i.e. systems which resemble gradient systems (more precisely, whose restriction to any finite domain has a Lyapunov function), we (jointly with Th. Gallay) described up to a large extend possible dynamics.

Recent results include application of these ideas to the Navier-Stokes equation, as well as to driven Frenkel-Kontorova model.
