Organized as part of the IHÉS Lectures, this 2-week Summer School will be the last major scientific event of the special trimester on Non-Linear Waves that will start in the beginning of May 2016 at IHÉS. This school aims to provide an overview of recent developments in the field and to provide to post-docs and young researchers working in these domainsan an opportunity to interact with leading experts on the subject. Anther objectives is to gather researchers with different backgrounds whose research is much more converging today than 4 years ago. Last but not least, another objective would be the following: the advances have helped to solve classical problems from physics with new and very advanced methods based on analytical intuition thus not always understood or simply not well-known by the physicists. The idea would be to initiate a transfer to physicists interested in non linear waves phenomena and intensify the discussions on more realistic models, whether fluid, kinetic or of high-frequency waves.
