Rand 60

From Nonlinear Dynamics to Systems Biology: in celebration of David Rand's 60th birthday, achievements and influencegry_scale_dar_cropp.jpg

Monday 1 and Tuesday 2 December 2008

Organisers: Robert MacKay, Sebastian van Strien, Nigel Burroughs, and Matt Keeling


This London Mathematical Society and EU Research Training Network CODY supported workshop will address renormalisation of dynamical systems, singularities and bifurcations, time series analysis, game theory in economics, finance, epidemiology, ecology, biophysics and biological regulation.

All are welcome to attend. Research students are especially welcome. Please follow this Registration link on the right to register, by 1 November if you would like assistance with reserving accommodation and in any case by 21 November so that we can plan catering. There will be a registration fee of £20 (UK pounds) payable on arrival.
