Spring 2012 Meeting of the
Workshop on Dynamical Systems and Related Topics
The annual Maryland-Penn State Spring Dynamics Meeting will take place
in College Park, MD during the period from March 31 till April 3, 2012.
This year we will have an emphasis on applications of dynamics to
mathematical physics and related areas.
Saturday afternoon will features a session celebrating 70th
birthday of James Yorke.
banquet will be held on Saturday at 7pm in
Chef's Secret restraunt.
Banquet cost is $15 for graduate students and $30 for everyone
Please contact Michael Jakobson (mvy AT math.umd.edu)
before March 23 if you would like to
attend the banquet.
To register for the conference, please using the registration form at
Mathematics Coloquium talk on Friday, March 30, 3pm will
be given by Hakan Eliasson.
In addition shorter contributed talks will be given by
Jianyu Chen (Penn State),
Alexey Korepanov (Alabama), Kiran Parkhe (Northwestern),
Ilya Vinogradov (Princeton), Ben Webb (Brigham Young).

Conference program (with abstracts) is available
The conference motel will be the Quality Inn,
7200 Baltimore Blvd. (Route 1),
College Park MD 20740, 301-276-1000. It is
within walking distance of the Math department.
You can walk to Quality Inn
Park Metro Station by going west
along Calvert Road (exactly 1/2 mile, about 10-15 minutes);
alternately you can call
the hotel (301-276-1000) for shuttle pickup (we are not sure of
the reliability of this pickup).
We expect to provide lodging support at the Quality Inn
for conference participants,
at shared room rate (if you are willing to share
a room, we pay; if you request a single room,
we pay half). For this, please contact Dmitry Dolgopyat
(dmitry AT math.umd.edu) by March 15 indicating
the nights you want to stay; do not make
a reservation directly with the Quality Inn. If you
want to share a room and do not have a roommate, we
will find one for you.
To be added to the electronic mailing list for this and future
workshops at Maryland, send a message to
with the line "subscribe dswslist" in the message body.
Travel and parking information
directions to the math department by car and a map for parking.
Please note that this year's conference is NOT during our campus
spring break, so all parking rules must be followed strictly.
We CANNOT reimburse or waive parking tickets. On weekdays until 4:00
park in a visitor lot (expensive -- up to $15/day),
the closest of which is marked in yellow on the map
at the link above. The Math building, where the conference will be,
is also in yellow on that map.

department by public transportation.

three Washington-area airports. Dulles airport is the most inconvenient
of the three area airports.
The Maryland-Penn State Dynamics Workshop
This workshop has been hosted each fall since 1991 by Penn State
University and each spring since 1992 by the University of Maryland,
and is jointly sponsored by the two institutions.
We are grateful to the
National Science Foundation
and to our
Department of Mathematics
for their continued support of these workshops.

at Maryland, and the home page of the
Center for Dynamics and
at Penn State, which contains information on the Penn State meetings.
