From Dynamics to Complexity
A conference celebrating the work of Mike Shub

Bahen Centre
, Room 1180

Organizing Committee:
Jean-Pierre Dedieu (University Paul Sabatier)
Teresa Krick (Department of Mathematics, University of Buenos Aires)
Charles Pugh (Department of Mathematics, Chicago University)
Amie Wilkinson (Department of Mathematics, Northwestern University)

Supported by the National Science Foundation
Registration n Fees $100, Students and PDF $40 Workshop


This conference aims to follow-up on the Fields Institute Fall 2009 Thematic Program on Foundations of Computational Mathematics, which was organized by Peter Borwein (Simon Frazer University), Stephen Cook (University of Toronto), Teresa Krick (University of Buenos Aires), Adrian Lewis (Cornell University), Richard Schwartz (Brown University) and Michael Shub (University of Toronto).

There were three major themes, centered on three different workshops: Discovery and Experimentation in Number Theory, Complexity of Numerical Computation and Computational Differential Geometry, Topology and Dynamics.

In this conference we will mainly focus on the second theme, giving account in particular on all the progress achieved on Smale's 17th problem: "Can a zero of n complex polynomial equations in n unknowns be found approximately, on the average, in polynomial time with a uniform algorithm?"

This conference aims to cover as well the evolution of some of the themes, mainly on Partially Hyperbolic Dynamics, Laminations, and Teichmuller Flow, of the Spring 2006 Thematic Program on Holomorphic Dynamics, Laminations, and Hyperbolic Geometry, of which Mike Shub was also an organizer.
