Schedule


15:50 -- 16:00 Registration and welcome coffee.

           
16:00 -- 17:00 Sergey Gonchenko, Institute for Applied Mathematics & Cybernetics,
               N. Novgorod, Russia
               
               Title: "Shilnikov heritage: review of his classical and pioneering works"
              
               Abstract: I will try to fulfil an impossible task: to give a more or less intelligible
               overview of the pioneer classical  L.P.Shilnikov works of  60-80th years.
               The main Shilnikov results  obtained in this period can be grouped into 5 main
               topics: 1) bifurcations of separatrix loop in multidimensional systems;
               2) homoclinic loop of a saddle-focus and mathematical theory of spiral chaos;
               3)  homoclinic chaos; 4) mathematical theory of synchronization, and chaos;
               5) Lorenz attractor. In the talk,  all these topics will be considered, but,
               of course, with varying degrees of completeness.

17:00 -- 17:25 Coffee break.


17:25 -- 18:25 Dmitry Turaev, Imperial College, UK.
               
               Title: "A positive metric entropy conjecture"   
                   
               Abstract: We prove that any area-preserving diffeomorphism with an elliptic periodic
               point can be perturbed, in C-infinity topology, to one exhibiting a chaotic
               island with positive metric entropy (a joint work with P.Berger).Contact information
