Vladimir Igorevich Arnold, 19372010, was one of the greatest mathematicians of the 20th century. He has made fundamental contributions to numerous fields of mathematics, including dynamical systems, classical mechanics, singularity theory, algebraic geometry, topology and catastrophe theory. In 1957, at the age of 19, Arnold, together with his teacher A. N. Kolmogorov, solved Hilberts 13th problem on representation of continuous functions. The results contained in his doctoral thesis Small denominators and stability problems in classical and celestial mechanics became one of the cornerstones of the famous KAM theory, named after its creators Kolmogorov, Arnold, and Moser. Arnold's monographs Mathematical Methods of Classical Mechanics and Ordinary Differential Equations became classical university textbooks.
The conference "Legacy of Vladimir Arnold" to be held
at the Fields Institute will celebrate the work and life of this
distinguished mathematician and remarkable human being. In addition
to research talks, it will host an evening session for high school
students on Tuesday, November 25 and an evening round table devoted
to open problems on Thursday, November 27.
Proceeding of the conference will be published in the "Arnold mathematical journal", a recently established journal based in the Stony Brook University, covering a broad range of mathematical domains. Deadline for submission: November 28, 2014.
