Dynamical Systems
at Queen Mary

Dynamical Systems Seminar - Autumn Semester 2005

Time:  Tuesday at 4pm (except Special Seminars); tea is available from 3.15pm in the adjacent common room.
Location:  Mathematics Seminar Room (Room 103, first floor of the Mathematical Sciences Building)
Some general remarks: Everyone 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 perfectly arranged presentations.
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.
