2009 Workshop in Dynamical Systems and Related Topics


Semi-annual Workshop in Dynamical

Systems and Related Topics

The 20th Fall meeting of the Workshop in Dynamical Systems and Related Topics

will take place on

OCTOBER 29 - November 1, 2009.

All lectures will be at the Mathematics Department (McAllister building)

at the Penn State University Park campus.

This workshop has been hosted each fall since 1991 by Penn State University and each spring since 1992 by the University of Maryland, and is jointly sponsored by the two institutions. The basic funding of the workshop is provided by an NSF grant. Additional funding for this meeting, is provided by the Center for Dynamics and Geometry at Penn State.
