Llavefest: A broad perspective on finite and infinite dimensional Dynamical Systems (FIDDS-17).

​A conference to celebrate Rafael de la Llave contributions in his 60th birthday




General information 

From June 12 to 16, 2017


Location: Historical Building of the Universitat de Barcelona, located at Gran Via de les Corts catalanes, 585 (Aula Magna UB). 

A brief history




Organized by

Universitat de Barcelona
Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya
Centre de Recerca Matemàtica



The goal of this conference is to present new advances in different aspects on Dynamical Systems and Partial Differential Equations.

The conference aims to promote interactions between these and related fields, from analysis and geometry to numerical computations and simulations. Such kind of iterations has proven to be very fruitful and enlightening.

The Conference is dedicated to the 60th birthday of Professor Rafael de la Llave.

Topics include:

-  Dynamical systems and ergodic theory
-  Global dynamics in Hamiltonian systems
-  KAM theory
-  Arnol'd diffusion
-  PDEs and their applications
-  Lattice systems
-  Action-minimizing orbits and measures
-  Invariant manifold theory
-  Hyperbolic systems
-  Renormalization group methods
