International Conference on Dynamical Systems
Session of the Sharkovsky's Seminar
May 18 - 22, 1998, Institute of Mathematics, Kiev,
The conference will center on problems in low dimensional dynamics,
with some time devoted to other areas of dynamical systems.
This conference is planned as a seminar based on 1-hour reports and
will be similar to the traditional Sharkovsky's seminar existing since
1974 and taking place almost every week. Since the seminar was started,
many well-known mathematicians presented their reports at it - V. M. Alexeyev,
A. M. Blokh, Yu. Bogdanov, I. U. Bronshtein, K. Khanin, B. Khesin, G. Levin,
M. Yu. Lyubich, M. I. Malkin, M. Misiurewicz, Ya. Pesin, B. Sevryuk, L.
P. Shil'nikov, J. Smital, L. Snoha, M. V. Yakobson, X. Ye, and others.
However, because of the financial crisis in the Former Soviet Union countries,
the seminar works irregularly now. To stimulate the work, we decided to
organize an international session of the seminar hoping that similar sessions
may become regular in the future with, probably, a larger number of lecturers.

The conference will start on May 18 at 10:00 and finish on May 22 at 13:00.
Every day we plan to have 2-3 lectures from 10:00 to 13:00. Some time for
short announcements will also be planned.
The conference will be held at the Institute of Mathematics which is in
the centre of Kiev and is 5 minutes from the subway stations "Teatral'na"
or "L'va Tolstogo".
Kiev in May is typically warm, with average daily highs around 20 degrees
C, and overnight lows around 12 degrees C. Most days are sunny, but also
come prepared for the possibility of occasional rain.
Social events and excursions
Kiev is the capital of Ukraine and it is intellectual, economic and cultural
centre of the country. The conference will be held at the Institute of
Mathematics of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine located in the centre
of Kiev near Khreshchatyk street which is the central street of Kiev. Series
of excursions will be proposed to participants of the conference from the
As a social event, for interested participants we will organize a visit
of the famous Taras Shevchenko National Opera. A party is also planned.
