Resonances of complex dynamics

ICMS, 15 South College Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9AA

9-13 July 2018

Scientific organisers

Simon Albrecht, University of Liverpool 
Lasse Rempe-Gillen, University of Liverpool 
Gwyneth Stallard, Open University

Additional organisers

Patrick Comduehr, University of Kiel
Alexandre Eremenko, Purdue University
Dierk Schleicher, Jacobs University, Bremen

This workshop will enable progress in one-dimensional complex dynamics and connected areas, such as function theory, dynamics of quasiregular mappings, higher-dimensional complex dynamics, fractal geometry and continuum theory, by focusing on fundamental interactions between them. There will be a particular focus on influences and resonances of the iteration of transcendental functions with this diverse set of areas. Leading experts will present overviews of such connections, and discuss outstanding problems of major significance where this point of view might lead to fundamentally new insights. The workshop will celebrate the 60th birthday of Professor Walter Bergweiler, one of the world leaders in transcendental dynamics, whose work has had a profound influence on a range of mathematical disciplines.


Invited speakers and participants will receive an email invitation from ICMS in March 2018.


There will be a limited number of places available at this workshop for public applicants. If you wish to attend, please complete this application form. The closing date for applications is Friday 20 April 2018.  All applications will be reviewed by the scientific organisers and applicants notified of decisions after that date.
