Dynamics with Symmetry

25th-26th March 2002

University of Leeds

This meeting is will bring together two LMS-funded networks: PANDA (Patterns, Nonlinear Dynamics and Applications) and the Nonlinear Pennine Triangle, and will be held on Monday and Tuesday 25th-26th March 2002, in the Department of Applied Mathematics, University of Leeds. These networks are affiliated with the Leeds Centre for Nonlinear Studies.

The meeting will be held in the Roger Stevens Building Lecture Theatre 24, on level 10 of the building marked '83' on the top left-hand corner of this map. Tea and coffee will be on level 9 of the School of Mathematics, across the footbridge from the Roger Stevens Building. The School of Mathematics is marked '75' in the lower right-hand corner of this map.

For those walking up from the rail station, this map might help. Aim for the bridge on Calverley Street, just beyond the Leeds General Infirmary, above the word 'Tunnel'. This bridge leads to the South Entrance of the University (see yet another map). The Roger Stevens Building is behind a large square pool.
