Show List of Speakers


The aim of this workshop is to promote the interaction of researchers working on pure and applied aspects dynamical systems. It will feature a group of speakers from mathematics who are responsible for some of the ma advances in the theory of dynamical systems over recent years. They will be complemented with speakers working ispecific applied areas where dynamical systems ideas are used, such as neuroscience, atmospheric sciences, fluidschemical reactions. We plan to have overview talks the aim of which is for each of these groups to introduce thework and techniques to the other, and more specialized talks that center on specific recent advances.
