Spring 2003 Meeting of the
Maryland-Penn State Workshop on
Dynamical Systems and Related Topics

March 22-25 (Saturday-Tuesday)
Department of Mathematics
University of Maryland, College Park

Workshop focus

We welcome speakers from the all areas of abstract and applied dynamical systems. We do plan a focus this year in ergodic theory. Bernard Host and Bryna Kra will give a series of three lectures on their beautiful result that the liminf > 0 in Furstenberg's proof of Szemeredi's Theorem is actually a limit.

Sunday afternoon and evening we will have a series of lectures and a reception in celebration of the career of Professor Hsin Chu who retired from our faculty this year. All workshop participants and members of the Maryland community are welcome to the reception in the Rotunda at 5:30.

These workshops particularly welcome the participation of young investigators, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students.

Schedule Updated March 23.
Notes for the Lectures of Host and Kra are available in .pdf

The Maryland-Penn State Workshop

Beginning in Fall 1990, this workshop has been hosted each spring by the University of Maryland and each fall by Penn State University, and jointly sponsored by the two institutions. The Maryland meeting is supported by the University's Department of Mathematics and by the National Science Foundation.
