Introduction:
This session will concentrate on the contemporary geometric techniques in ordinary and partial differential equations, finite and infinite dimensional mechanics, and control. The geometric viewpoint provides a unified and systematic framework for addressing a broad range of questions arising in variational calculus, variational geometry, fluid dynamics, mechanics of coupled systems, and mathematical physics. Geometric method include structure-preserving integration, symmetry reduction, moving frame calculus, and integrability. This session will become a venue for mathematicians, applied mathematicians, and engineers to explore their common interest in the geometric approach to mechanics, and more generally to non-linear differential equations.
