2nd Workshop on Time-Reversal Symmetry in Dynamical Systems

Imperial College (London) (1-3 December 1999)

(On Wednesday 1 December the meeting will coincide with the London Dynamics Seminar and a meeting of the Southeastern Bifurcation Theory Group).

The 2nd workshop is a small scale follow-up of the 1st Workshop organised in December 1996 at Warwick (see Physica D 112 for its proceedings), and will deal with various aspects of time-reversal symmetry in dynamical systems, in Hamiltonian and in non-Hamiltonian systems. The main aim is to review recent developments in the field, including bifurcation theory for reversible equivariant (Hamiltonian) systems, reversible homoclinic orbits, reversible heteroclinic cycles, normal form theory, etc.

Invited speakers
Richard Cushman Utrecht, Netherlands
Igor Hoveijn Groningen, Netherlands
Eric Lombardi Nice, France
James Montaldi Nice, France
John Roberts Melbourne, Australia
Mark Roberts Warwick, UK
Andre Vanderbauwhede Gent, Belgium
Claudia Wulff Berlin, Germany

(most of them confirmed) Furthermore, we anticipate the participation and contributions of many other active researchers in the field.

Funding to support the attendance of participants is pending, but will be very limited. Please contact me in case funding is playing a key-role in deciding your attendance, or if you have any other questions. e-mail:
