Title: Hopf-Cole Transformation
Abstract: The Hopf-Cole transformation turning the strongly nonlinear Burgers equation into the linear heat equation plays an important role in the development of mathematical sciences. In this talk the transformation is viewed from historical perspective. Some open problems concerning the application of the Hopf-Cole transformation are also raised.
