PANDA (Pattern Formation, Nonlinear Dynamics and Applications)

Coupled Cell and Network Dynamics

Friday 11th April 2008

Dept of Applied Mathematics, University of Leeds

The second PANDA (Pattern Formation, Nonlinear Dynamics and Applications) workshop of the 2007-08 series will be held in the School of Mathematics, University of Leeds, on Friday 11th April 2008. These meetings combine pedagogical talks with research-level presentations; research students and post-docs are warmly encouraged to attend. There is limited funding available to defray travel expenses.
