Math Discussion to Explore New Type of Stability Property for Initial Value Problem Solution, March 31


Join NSU’s Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography for the next Mathematics Colloquium Series event: “Asymptotic Stability of Non-Unique Solutions of Initial Value Problems.” This talk is free and open to the public.

Speaker: Muhammad Islam, Ph.D., professor, University of Dayton

Thursday, March 31

12:10–12:50 p.m.

Mailman-Hollywood Building | Second Floor Auditorium


Muhammad Islam, Ph.D.

This talk will consider an initial value problem (IVP) of a first order nonlinear ordinary differential equation and will assume that the IVP can have more than one solution. The discussion will explore a new type of stability property of these solutions. This stability is not the standard Liapunov stability commonly studied in the field of differential equations.

Guest speaker Muhammad Islam received his M.S. in Applied Mathematics from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada, and his Ph.D. in Mathematics from Southern Illinois University. His primary research is in the field of ordinary and functional differential equations and qualitative analysis.
