Eenhoorn, Jasper (author)
The (nonlinear) behaviour of laser beams can be described with Nonlinear Schrödinger equations (NLS). The purpose of this thesis is to shed light on two mathematical papers that give existence and uniqueness results for an NLS equation called the soliton equation. The contribution is to expand the level of detail with which the analysis and some...

In this thesis we consider orbital stability of certain patterns in stochastic partial differential equations. We study two examples: a rotating wave in a two-dimensional reaction-diffusion equation and a soliton in a parametrically forced nonlinear Schrödinger equation. In both cases, we show that, for small noise, solutions to the stochastic...

Roodenburg, Floris (author)
In this thesis we consider the incompressible and stationary Stokes problem with Navier-slip boundary conditions on an infinite two-dimensional wedge with opening angle θ. As is common for differential equations on domains with corners, the problem is decomposed into a singular expansion near the corner (polynomial problem) and a regular...

Wisse, Anouk (author)
This thesis treats the thin-film equation which models the film height $h$ for a viscous film in the complete wetting regime. We show existence and uniqueness to the thin-film equation with mobility m(h) = h<sup>n</sup> and mobility exponent n∈ (1,3/2)∪ (3/2,3). The thin-film equation is rewritten as an abstract Cauchy problem and usage of semi...

This thesis considers solutions to the discrete Nagumo equation u˙ n = d(un−1 − 2un + un+1) + f(un), n ∈ Z. For sufficiently large d, the solutions are of the form un(t) = U(n + ct) with c &gt; 0. This thesis contains the proof of existence of traveling wave solutions of the discrete Nagumo equations and originates from...

Westdorp, Rik (author)
In this thesis, a variation on the nonlinear Schrödinger (NLS) equation with multiplicative noise is studied. In particular, we consider a stochastic version of the parametrically-forced nonlinear Schrödinger equation (PFNLS), which models the effect of linear loss and the compensation thereof by phase-sensitive amplification in pulse...

Hoogendijk, Jochem (author)
This master's thesis introduces a new $p$-dependent coercivity condition through which $L^p(\Omega; L^2([0, T]; X))$ estimates can be obtained for a large class of SPDEs in the variational framework. Using these estimates, we obtain existence and uniqueness results by using a Galerkin approximation argument. The framework that is built is...

Vural, Asya (author)
The porous medium equation $\dv{t}u=\dv{x}(k(u)\dv{x}u)$ is a non-linear degenerate parabolic partial differential equation. Consequently, existence and uniqueness of its solutions is not immediately evident.<br/>This bachelor thesis presents a detailed discussion of Atkinson's and Peletier's 1971 article ``Similarity profiles of flows through...

Wisse, A.C. (author)
This thesis considers the thin-film equation in partial wetting. The mobility in this equation is given by h<sup>3</sup>+λ<sup>3-n</sup>h<sup>n</sup>, where h is the film height, λ is the slip length and n is the mobility exponent. The partial wetting regime implies the boundary condition dh/dz&gt;0 at the triple junction....
