7th Bremen Summer School and Symposium

Dynamical systems - pure and applied, August 5-9, 2019
This is the homepage for the 7th Bremen Dynamics Summer School and Symposium on Dynamical systems -- pure and applied to be held at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Bremen. It will consist of lecture courses, a number of research talks and a poster session. The meeting will take place in room MZH 1470.
All participants are invited to present a poster at our poster session.
We are happy to announce that there will be no conference fee, thanks to a grant from the DFG (German Research Funding Organisation).
For snacks and coffee during the conference, we ask for 10 EUR from each participant.
Summer School Lecture Courses:
Public Lecture:
Paradoxical decompositions, groups and growth rates
Richard Sharp (University of Warwick, UK)

The Banach-Tarski paradox says that it is possible to decompose a 3-dimensional ball into a finite number of pieces and rearrange them to form two copies of the original ball. This is perhaps the most striking example of the type of paradoxical decompositions that were discovered in the early 20th century. It was already realised in the 1920s that these decompositions are intimately related to the structure of the underlying symmetry groups. Perhaps even more surprising, the last 60 years have seen that this theory is related to an apparently very different set of problems: understanding some of the growth (or decay) rates that occur in probability, geometry and chaotic dynamics. I will discuss some of these topics and the connections between them.

Wednesday, August 7, 18:00 - 19:00, Haus der Wissenschaft, Sandstraße 4/5, 28195 Bremen
