2002 Workshop in Dynamical Systems and Related Topics

  Semi-annual Workshop in Dynamical Systems and Related Topics


Fall 2002 Workshop October 12-15, Penn State University
Thomas Building


This is the 13th Penn State meeting in the series of regular meetings dedicated to recent results in the theory of smooth dynamical systems, ergodic theory, symbolic dynamics, topological dynamics, Hamiltonian mechanics and related areas in differential geometry, differential equations, Lie theory and partial differential equations, and is sponsored by Penn State and the University of Maryland. It is intended to provide a focus of activities and a meeting place primarily for mathematicians from the northeast region working in this field.

This year's meeting is the first part of John Mather's fest organized on the occasion of his 60th birthday to be followed by a conference at Princeton University on October 17-20. We plan to have talks related to Mather's work given by some prominent mathematicians.

The workshop is funded by the National Science Foundation and The Center for Dynamical Systems at Penn State. Beginning in the Fall 2000, NSF support has been increased from $6,000 to $8,000.

The meeting will start on Saturday, Oct 12 at 9:00 am (please, note that the start time has changed) and will end by the lunchtime on Tuesday, Oct 15th.  Please, note that this year's meeting will be held  in  the Thomas Building located on Penn State campus, and not at the Atherton Hotel. Most participants will stay at the Sleep Inn Hotel.

The conference organizers are Svetlana Katok and Yasha Pesin. The conference staff assistant is Hope Shaffer. To request further information about the workshop please send email to dsws@math.psu.edu. A copy of your message will be sent to all organizers and the conference staff assistant.
