Dynamical Systems
at Queen Mary



Dynamical Systems Seminar - Autumn Semester 2004

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 e-mail me if you want to be on the seminar's mailing list, or perhaps want to give a talk yourself.
