School in Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory
Month: June 2014
Date: June 4--14
Name: School in Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory
Location: Cheikh Anta Diop University, Dakar, Senegal and African Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Mbour, Senegal.
The fields of Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory constitute very active areas of research with connections to many other areas of mathematics, such as topology, differential geometry, control theory, functional analysis and probability theory. They also have strong connections to several areas of mathematical physics and other disciplines such as biology and engineering. This school will be an introduction to some current topics in the modern theory of Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory, and is aimed primarily at students at the Master's level. Specific background in Dynamics or Ergodic Theory is preferred but not required, whereas a very strong general mathematical background and maturity is essential. The places at the school are very limited and the selection will be competitive.
