The fourth meeting within the Skew Products Network was held at at UMIST on Tuesday, August 11th.
Fifteen people attended from the universities of Manchester, UMIST and Southampton.
The talks were:
|C. Walkden||Manchester||The Livsic theorem for twisted cocycles|
|I. Melbourne||Houston||Symmetries of transitive sets|
|M. Field||Houston||Stably ergodic systems|
Professor Melbourne was supported by an EPSRC grant and Professor Field was supported partly by an LMS scheme 2 grant. Both grants were held jointly by P. Ashwin and M. Nicol.
We think that this series of meetings was very successful in stimulating interaction between the various members of the network, and also in fostering joint research. The exposure to current research (and personal contacts) it provided to PhD students was very valuable.
