Annual international conference «Days on Diffraction»

The conference «Days on Diffraction» is a representative international forum that mirrors the up-to-date state-of-the-art in the theory of diffraction and wave propagation and related mathematical topics. It is the only annual conference of this kind held in the Russian Federation. The conference serves as the progress in the fundamental research in wave physics and the corresponding areas of mathematics such as mathematical problems of diffraction and wave propagation theory; boundary-value contact problems arising in acoustics and electrodynamics; propagation of waves in inhomogeneous, stochastic, and composite media; wave phenomena in meta-materials and nano-structures; theory of wave-guides and resonators; numerical methods; nonlinear waves. During the past few years several new topics were added, namely: water waves; homogenization; spectral theory of operators; wavelet analysis. The participants come from all over the world.

 There are always many university students and postgraduate students giving talks at the conference, they present results of their research and publish them in the proceedings of the conference. The conference attracts young scientists to the reasearch.

Usually, the conference takes place in the beginning of each summer. It lasts five days, and there are plenary, sectional, and poster sessions.

The «Days on Diffraction» have been held since 1968.
