The International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM) is the worldwide organization of societies which are dedicated primarily or significantly to applied and/or industrial mathematics. The ICIAM Congresses, held every 4 years, are run under the auspices of the Council with the aim to advance the applications of mathematics in all parts of the world. The Sixth ICIAM Congress was held in Zürich, Switzerland, July 16–20, 2007, and was attended by more than 3000 scientists from 47 countries.

This volume collects the invited lectures of this Congress, the appreciations of the ICIAM Prize winners' achievements, and the Euler Lecture celebrating the 300th anniversary of Euler. The authors of these papers are leading researchers in their fields, rigorously selected by a distinguished international program committee. The book presents an overview of contemporary applications of mathematics, new perspectives, and open problems. Topics embrace analysis of and numerical methods for:

linear and nonlinear partial differential equations

multiscale modeling

nonlinear problems involving integral operators

controllability and observability

asymptotic solutions of Hamilton–Jacobi equations

contact problems in solid mechanics

topology optimization of structures

dissipation inequalities in systems theory

greedy algorithms

sampling in function space

order-value optimization

parabolic partial differential equations and deterministic games

Moreover, particular applications involve risk in financial markets, radar imaging, brain dynamics, and complex geometric optics applied to acoustics and electromagnetics.
