Final Program

The application of dynamical systems theory to areas outside of mathematics has proven to be an exciting and fruitful endeavor. The applications are highly diverse and interdisciplinary, ranging over such fields as Physics, Biology and Ecology, Engineering, Finance, Industrial Mathematics, Chemistry, Biochemistry and Genetics.

Fifth SIAM Conference on Applications of Dynamical Systems

This conference strives to achieve an exciting mixture of applications and mathematics.

The goals of the conference are a cross-fertilization between the different fields of the applications, and increased communication between the mathematicians who build the theory, and the scientists who use it.
