It is my great personal privilege and pleasure, as Conference Chairman, to inform you about the Fourth International Conference "Frontiers of Nonlinear Physics" and to invite you to attend it and to make it a great scientific event. The Conference will be held on board a comfortable boat cruising from Nizhny Novgorod up the Volga river and further to St.-Petersburg from July 13 through July 20, 2010.
Like the three previous FNP conferences held in 2001, 2004 and 2007, FNP 2010 will be focused on the hot topics of nonlinear dynamics and its most advanced applications to physical systems of different origins. Our previous conferences clearly demonstrated that, in spite of wide diversity of the specific problems and their origins, nonlinear physics still unifies the interrelated fields of modern science. Nonlinear approaches and techniques provide a powerful research tool to study different processes ranging from nonlinearities in laser-matter interactions to nonlinear phenomena in environment or in the astrophysical objects.
Coming back to the last FNP 2007 Conference (www.fnp.sci-nnov.ru/2007), we would like to
emphasize the set of its focus issues such as coherent phenomena in
quantum systems; optoelectronics and THz physics; nonlinear physics of the ultrahigh-power
laser and high-field optics; nonlinear phenomena in high-energy plasma;
weak turbulence, flows and solitons in fluid dynamics;
nonlinear acoustics and freak waves in the upper ocean; nonlinear problems in astrophysics and cosmology. More than150 scientists from 18 countries took part
in the Conference. The plenary talks were given by world-famous experts and provided
a good opportunity to catch up the most recent results and trends from neighboring areas.
If you intend to take part in the Conference and if it does not interfere with your schedule for the next year, please fill in and return to us the enclosed Pre-registration Form.
I am looking forward to seeing you at FNP 2010.
