Dynamics Seminar

These seminars are generally on results related to dynamical systems.   This includes ergodic theory, invariant manifold theory, KAM theory, complex dynamics, topological dynamics, and many more.

Results in related fields, e.g. probability theory, theory of computations, statistical mechanics (to name a few), are also welcome.
