Semi-annual Workshop in Dynamical Systems and Related Topics

 

The 16th Fall meeting of the Workshop in Dynamical Systems and Related Topics
at Penn State will feature a special
Conference in honor of Michael Jakobson's sixtieth birthday.
The conference will take place on
OCTOBER 14-17, 2005 (Friday through Monday)
in room 114 of the newly renovated century old McAllister building of the Penn State Mathematics Department.

The workshop is sponsored by The Center for Dynamics and Geometry at Penn State.

 

Two of the four days of the conference will be dedicated to the real low-dimensional dynamics, the subject to which Jakobson made seminal contributions and where he exercised the strongest influence. The remaining two days will feature invited talks on a variety of subjects in dynamics and related areas by distinguished collaborators, colleagues and friends of Jakobson. There will be a banquet during the conference in Jakobson's honor.
