Flexibility and rigidity in dynamical systems: March 7-11, 2022

Organized by: Thomas Barthelmé, Aaron Brown, Alena Erchenko, and Ralf Spatzier. This workshop on flexibility and rigidity in dynamical systems will bring together people working on complimentary yet interacting directions in dynamics. While rigidity concerns itself with situations and conditions under which the dynamics becomes very special, even classifiable at times, flexibility studies how large […]
