International conference on Aymmetries, differential equations and applications begins

Islamabad: The inaugural session of International Conference on “Symmetries, Differential Equations and Applications, (SDEA-II)” was held at School of Natural Sciences, NUST here on Monday. Rector NUST Engr Asghar was the chief guest at the occasion.

In his address, Engr Asghar welcomed the international research scholars from Turkey, Qatar, Morocco, Oman, Srilanka, Italy, Canada, South Africa and Greece who managed to participate in this conference. The four-day conference program includes: parallel session program, Abdussalam commemoration, sister workshops, excursion and conference dinner.

It was the second conference in the series, the first being SDEA-I having been held in DECMA, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa at the bicentenary of Evariste Galois in 2012. SNS organizing faculty members dedicate SDEA – II to the 150 years of the presentation of James Clerk Maxwell on his Theory of Electromagnetism to the Royal Society in 1864

The conference is aimed at providing a unique platform for young researchers, faculty and especially students to interact/collaborate with distinguished researchers from all over the world working in the area of symmetries, conservation laws, bi-Hamiltonians, moving frames to study underlying geometrical structures and integral properties of differential equations.

Differential equations is one of the most important branches of Mathematics that helps understand the dynamics of real-life problems that appear in miscellaneous fields of science e.g., Physics, Chemistry, Biology, etc Over the last two decades there has been an enormous increase in the use of Lie and Noether symmetries to solve differential equations.
