ICERM workshop: Illustrating Dynamics and Probability

Illustrating Dynamics and Probability

ICERM (The Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics)

November 11-15
Brown University
Providence, Rhode Island

This workshop will focus on the theoretical insights developed via illustration, visualization, and computational experimentation in dynamical systems and probability theory.

Topics from complex dynamics:

  • Dynamical moduli spaces and their dynamically-defined subvarieties
  • Degenerations of dynamical systems as one moves toward the boundary of moduli space
  • The structure of algebraic data coming from a family of dynamical systems

Topics from classical dynamical systems:

  • Flows on hyperbolic spaces and Lorentz attractors
  • Simple physical systems like billiards in two and three-dimensional domains
  • Flows on moduli spaces

In probability theory, the workshop features random walks and continuous-time random processes like Brownian motion, SLE, and scaling limits of discrete systems.
