The Banff International Research Station will host the "Connections in Infinite Dimensional Dynamics" workshop in Banff from May 17 to May 22, 2020.

Changes in dynamics define many of the important phenomena we see around us, such as the passage from normal heart beat to arrhythmia, the collapse of the stock market, and the shedding of vortices from airplane wings. Mathematically such dynamic transitions are modelled by connections in nonlinear dynamical systems, mainly in the form of ordinary differential equations, partial differential equations and delay differential equations. This workshop focuses on combining computational techniques with abstract mathematics to improve our fundamental understanding of transitions in dynamical systems.

The Banff International Research Station for Mathematical Innovation and Discovery (BIRS) is a collaborative Canada-US-Mexico venture that provides an environment for creative interaction as well as the exchange of ideas, knowledge, and methods within the Mathematical Sciences, with related disciplines and with industry. The research station is located at The Banff Centre in Alberta and is supported by Canada's Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC), the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), Alberta's Advanced Education and Technology, and Mexico's Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología (CONACYT).
