cantorsalta2015: DYNAMICS ON CANTOR SETS

2-13 nov. 2015 - Universidad Nacional de Salta - Salta - Argentine

 

About the school

Symbolic dynamics, tiling dynamical systems and dynamics on the set of p-adic integers share a common feature: they are defined or involve Cantor sets. This school will focus on these dynamical systems. Symbolic dynamics is an intensively studied area since the 70's that has a lot of strong connections with computer science, geometric dynamical systems, ergodic theory, numeration systems, number theory, automata theory, etc. The school will propose introductions to these topics and in particular to cellular automata, shift of finite type, substitutions, Bratteli diagrams, etc.

This school is mainly devoted to students wanting to start a PhD, to PhD students, and young researchers. The language for the school is English.

The lectures will be held at AULA VIRTUAL DE LA FACULTAD DE CIENCIAS EXACTAS, in the Campus of Universidad Nacional de Salta.
