Dynamical Systems at Queen Mary 
Time: Tuesday
at 4pm (except Special Seminars); tea is available
from 3pm
in the adjacent common room.
Location: Mathematics Seminar Room
(Room 103, first floor of the
Mathematical Sciences Building)
Some general remarks: Everybody is
invited to come to the
seminar. Ideally, the talks should be directed towards discussions of present lines of
research rather than covering as many details as possible in a
perfectly arranged presentation.
Organizer: Rainer Klages;
please email me if you want to be on
the seminar's mailing list, or perhaps want to give a
talk yourself.
