2013 Southern Ontario Dynamics Day
Co-organized by York University and the Fields Institute

Held at Fields Institute, 222 College St., Toronto

Organizer: Huaiping Zhu, York University


The 2013 Southern Ontario Dynamics Day is co-organized by the Department of Mathematics & Statistics of York University and The Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Science. The workshop will be hosted at The Fields Institute.

The 2013 Dynamics Day program will consist of 15 invited lectures, including a session for selected postdocs and graduate students. The program will cover very diverse and exciting new development of research in dynamical systems theory including bifurcation theory and applications in ecology and epidemiology.
