Proposal for the session ``Dynamical Systems and Variational Methods” 7.5-9, 2018, Taipei In recent years, the variational methods have played an important role in the study of finite and infinite dimensional dynamical systems. Existence, multiplicity and stability problems on periodic, homoclinic, heteroclinic as well as other type solutions have been deeply studied via variational and other methods. Such methods have also been applied to the study of partial differential equations. The aim of this session is to bring together active researchers from different fields in dynamical systems and variational method, to report most recent research results, and to stimulate communications and cooperation among them. The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics to be discussed in this session. • N-body problems in celestial mechanics • Geodesic flows and closed geodesics on compact manifolds • Periodic orbits in Hamiltonian systems • Homoclinic and heteroclinic orbits in Hamiltonian systems • Reaction-diffusion systems • Patterns and waves in gradient or skew-gradient systems Organizers of session Yiming Long (Nankai University) Chao-Nien Chen (Tsinghua University in Taiwan) Huagui Duan (Nankai University) Speakers in the session Tentatively we are planning to invite 12-14 speakers from Taiwan and the mainland of China as well as in the other parts of the world.
