Progress and Problems in Dynamics

May 14 - May 16, 2012

The aim of the workshop is to review progress and potential topics ripe for cross fertilization and development in the areas of probabilistic dynamics, network dynamics and hybrid dynamical systems. Participants include a core of experts in the modern statistical theory of dynamical systems complemented by experts in specific areas in dynamics and applications (heteroclinic phenomena, cycling chaos, adaptive networks, control, spatially extended systems, and piecewise smooth dynamics).

A priority of the workshop is to involve graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty interested in dynamics and applications. We anticipate being able to fund travel and accommodation for members of this group (see under support below and note that we expect to know the funding situation in the very near future; we strongly recommend applying now for support).

The workshop will take place at the Hilton, Houston Medical Center . So as to encourage interactions between participants, there will be no parallel sessions and talks will be structured so as to give ample time for discussion (see also under accommodation below).
