The theory of dynamical systems describes the changes that occur in real physical as well as man-made ‘systems’ over time. Examples of such systems include e.g. planetary motions, weather, crystal growth, stock prices, and traffic jams. These phenomena can be unified conceptually in the mathematical notion of a dynamical system. To study dynamical systems at a sophisticated level, ergodic theory has emerged as an important tool. Historically, ergodic theory dealt primarily with averaging problems that appeared to be of largely technical nature and addressing general qualitative questions. By now, however, this area has become a powerful combination of methods that can be leveraged for the analysis of deeper statistical properties of dynamical systems. The aim of this session is to bring together scientists including the young researchers to discuss and exchange ideas in the areas of Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems.
