Advanced Course on Piecewise Smooth Dynamical Systems
General Information

Dates: April 11 to 15, 2016

This course will give a postgraduate level introduction to piecewise smooth (or nonsmooth) dynamical systems. We cover the central concepts and key methods for maps or flows with discontinuities, from the fundamental theory to recent advances.
​The advanced course is part of the Intensive Research Program being held at the CRM (Intensive Research Program: Advances in Nonsmooth Dynamics)
