UK Dynamical Systems Graduate School
Bifurcation, Symmetry and Pattern Formation
7-11th April 2008
Dynamical Systems Graduate School of 2007-08 will be held in the School of
Mathematics, University of Leeds, 7-11th April 2008. This school is intended
for PhD students interested in Nonlinear Dynamics, Bifurcation Theory, Pattern
Formation, and other applications where nonlinearity and/or symmetry is an
important feature. The courses are directed at Nonlinear Dynamics graduate
students of all levels, and have no non-standard prerequesites. Prior knowledge
is not required, but there should be something interesting in the courses even
for those students who already have a good background in the field. Research
students and post-docs are warmly encouraged to attend.
A list of participants and
School photo is available.
A programme is available.
The first four days of the School will comprise lectures covering a variety of
topics in Bifurcation, Symmetry and Pattern Formation:
Speakers will include:
- Local and global bifurcation theory
- Equivariant bifurcation theory and pattern formation
- Global bifurcations with symmetry
- Examples and applications
The last day of the meeting (Friday 11th April) will be a
workshop on Coupled
Cell and Network Dynamics, which will include pedagogical lectures on this
topic by Mikhail Ivanchenko and Jonathan Dawes.
- Mikhail Ivanchenko
- Paul Matthews
- Alastair Rucklidge
- Thomas Wagenknecht
The meeting will begin in the early afternoon of 7th April, and will finish
around 4:30 on Friday 11th April, after the PANDA meeting.
