Doc-course: Stability and Bifurcation in Piecewise Linear System. Sevilla, January 30th - February 10th, 2012




The IMUS (Instituto de Matemáticas de la Universidad de Sevilla) and the Dynamical System group of the Departamento de Matemática Aplicada II (US) organize, with the collaboration of SICC (Società Italiana Caos e Complessità), the DOC-COURSE "Stability and Bifurcations in Piecewise Linear Systems", which will be held from January 30th to February 10th, 2012, in the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería de Sevilla (SPAIN).

The main goal is to review both the theoretical results and some actual applications in the very active field of piecewise linear (PWL) differential systems, including certain discontinuous cases as the reemerging Filippov systems. The course represents a natural entrance door in the exciting world of piecewise smooth systems, which nowadays are pervading not only all the modern engineering problems but models from life sciences as biology or medicine.

Expected audience includes (but not limited to) recent postgraduates and/or potential Ph. D. students willing to enter into the challenging disciplines related to nonlinear science.

Accepted participants will have some financial help to cover their living expenses.
