International Conference on Dynamical Systems

Session of the Sharkovsky's Seminar

May 18 - 22, 1998, Institute of Mathematics, Kiev, Ukraine

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 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 followings ones As a social event, for interested participants we will organize a visit of the famous Taras Shevchenko National Opera.
