Spring 2012 Meeting of the
Workshop on Dynamical Systems and Related Topics

March 31-3 (Saturday-Tuesday), 2012

Department of Mathematics
University of Maryland, College Park

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. Conference banquet will be held on Saturday at 7pm in Chef's Secret restraunt. Banquet cost is $15 for graduate students and $30 for everyone else.
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 http://ter.ps/dynsystems


Mathematics Coloquium talk on Friday, March 30, 3pm will be given by Hakan Eliasson.

Confirmed speakers:

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 here


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 from College 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.

Travel and parking information

Click here for 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 PM, you must 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.

Click here for directions from the 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.
