Nonlinear Waves, Kinetic Theory and Related Topics: A Tribute to the Memory of Jean Ginibre


Jean Ginibre (4 March 1938 — 26 March 2020) was a French mathematical physicist. He was well known for his contributions to kinetic theory, nonlinear waves, mathematical physics and partial differential equations. This volume is a collection of articles in those areas, which are devoted to the memory of our former friend, colleague, and collaborator Jean Ginibre.

We are honored to have Minh-Binh Tran (Texas A&M University) as Lead Guest Editor and Yves Pomeau (École Polytechnique Paris & École Normale Supérieure Paris, France) and Martine Le Berre (CNRS and Université Paris-Saclay, France) as co-guest editors. 

  1. Here, we consider here Hyperbolic Nonlinear Schrödinger Equations (HNLS) that occur as asymptotic models in the modulational regime when the Hessian of the dispersion relation is not positive (or negative) defini...

  2. Self-similar finite-time singularity solutions of the axisymmetric Euler equations in an infinite system with a swirl are provided. Using the Elgindi approximation of the Biot–Savart kernel for the velocity in...

  3. We claim that human mathematics is only a limited part of the consequences of the chosen basic axioms. Properly human mathematics varies with time but appears to have universal features which we try to analyse...

  4. Although I had not previously been aware of Jean Ginibre’s work on random matrices, beginning in 1978 I became an admirer of his many papers on nonlinear waves in collaboration with Giorgio Velo. Their papers ...
