The 2010 Southern Ontario Dynamics Day is co-organized by the Departments of Mathematics & Statistics of the University of Guelph and York University and by The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Science. The workshop will be hosted by the Fields Institute.
The Southern Ontario Dynamics Day history dates back at least 20 years. The event is organized on a rotating basis by different Southern Ontario Universities. It was hosted at the Fields Institute in April 2006. The 2010 Dynamics Day program will consist of 15 invited lectures. The program will cover very diverse and exciting new areas of research in dynamical systems theory including bifurcation theory and applications.
