Non-uniqueness of differential equations

Abstract

Differential equations are an important tool in modelling many phenomena in the real world. However, these mathematical abstractions may exhibit behaviours that are not physically reasonable, such has admitting multiple solutions for a given initial condition, raising questions their validity as models.

In this gentle talk I will discuss the issues of non-uniqueness of Ordinary and Partial Differential Equations in several frameworks, and some recent work to establish uniqueness for differential equations with sufficiently regular coefficients.
