- School on Dynamical Systems: From Crystals to Chaos,
29 June-4 July 1998.
- Marseilles, France
The field of dynamical systems is in constant evolution
in many directions.
This school focuses on interactions
between discrete and
geometric dynamical systems, and between dynamical
systems, theoretical physics, and computer science.
This summer school is followed by an international conference
on the same topic.
- Contact: Ricardo Lima
- Conference on Dynamical Systems
From Crystals to Chaos. 6-10 July 1998.
- Marseilles, France.
- Information: This conference will focus on the
interactions between discrete and
geometric dynamical systems, and between dynamical systems, theoretical
physics and computer science.
- Nonlinear Dynamics
of Electronic Systems, 16-18 July 1998.
- Technical University of Budapest, Hungary.
- Information. The workshop will address theoretical
and practical issues in nonlinear electronic devices, circuits and
systems, with an emphasis on dynamic behaviour, chaos and complexity.
The official language of the workshop will be English.
- Objectives: The goal of NDES is to bring together
engineers, mathematicians, and physicists from across Europe in
a low-cost informal setting to address open nonlinear problems in
Electronics. Recent successes of the NDES workshops include advances
in the theory of digital filters, sigma-delta modulators and
phase-locked loops, the development of computer-aided
analysis and synthesis tools for nonlinear systems, design rules for RF
oscillators, nonlinear signal processing techniques, novel chaotic
communications strategies, and nonlinear building blocks for analog
