Symplectic Dynamics

Mon, 09/19/2011 (All day) to Wed, 08/15/2012 (All day)
2011-2012

The mathematical theory of dynamical systems provides tools to understand the complex behavior of many important physical systems.  Of particular interest are Hamiltonian systems.  Since Poincaré's fundamental contributions many mathematical tools have been developed to understand such systems.  Surprisingly these developments led to the creation of two seemingly unrelated mathematical disciplines: the field of dynamical systems and the field of symplectic geometry.  In view of the significant advances in both fields, it seems timely to have a program that aims at the development of the com
