2003 Workshop in Dynamical Systems and Related Topics

Semi-annual Workshop in Dynamical Systems and Related Topics


Fall 2003 Workshop October 23-26, Penn State University
Atherton Hotel, State College, PA

This is the 14th 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. We plan two major focuses this year.


[Sheldon Newhouse] 

We plan to celebrate achievements of Sheldon Newhouse in connection with his recent sixtieth birthday. Saturday and Sunday are devoted to this celebration.



Recently there have been many new results on applications of dynamics, especially in billiards and number theory. We plan to have a special session on Friday on this topic.




The workshop is funded by the National Science Foundation and The Center for Dynamical Systems at Penn State.

Most participants will stay at the Atherton Hotel .

The conference organizers are Bryna Kra and Yasha Pesin .  The conference staff assistant is Hope Shaffer. To request further information about participating in the workshop and/or giving a talk, please send email to dsws@math.psu.edu. A copy of your message will be sent to all organizers and the conference staff assistant.
