2014 Semi-annual Workshop in Dynamical Systems and Related Topics

The 25th Fall meeting of the  Semi-annual Workshop in Dynamical Systems and Related Topics  will take place on October 16 - 19, 2014.

The workshop will be dedicated to the 70th birthday of Anatole Katok and his 50 years of research in dynamical systems.


All lectures will be held at the Mathematics Department (114 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 and by Penn State Department of Mathematics.
