UK Dynamical Systems Graduate School

Bifurcation, Symmetry and Pattern Formation

7-11th April 2008

Dept of Applied Mathematics, University of Leeds

The final UK 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: The last day of the meeting (Friday 11th April) will be a PANDA workshop on Coupled Cell and Network Dynamics, which will include pedagogical lectures on this topic by Mikhail Ivanchenko and Jonathan Dawes.

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.

If you would like to come to the School, please do let me know by the 14th March.

Please circulate this announcement to anyone who may be interested in coming.
