A Newton Institute Workshop
APPLICATIONS OF SINGULARITY THEORY TO WAVE PROPAGATION THEORY AND DYNAMICAL SYSTEMS
25 September - 29 September 2000
Organisers: RM Roberts (Warwick); VM Zakalyukin (Moscow State Aviation Institute)
1 Singularities in Symplectic and contact spaces:Caustics and wavefronts, shock-waves, Hamilton-Jacobi equation, Lagrangian intersections, Legendre knots
2 Applications to control theory and differential equations, game theory. Singularities in subriemannian geometry, optimization, Pfaffian systems.
3 Singularities of momentum maps, energy-momentum maps and integrable Hamiltonian systems. Monodromy in Hamiltonian systems, applications to physics.
4 Bifurcations of (relative) equilibria of Hamiltonian systems and time-reversible equivariant dynamical systems. Singularity theory and KAM theory.

The conference will take place at the Newton Institute and accommodation for participants will be provided in single study bedrooms at Wolfson Court, a hall of residence adjacent to the Institute. The conference package costs £250, which includes registration fee, accommodation, breakfast and dinner from dinner on Sunday 24 September until breakfast on Friday 29 September, and lunches and refreshments on the days that lectures take place. Limited financial support may be available. The conference will be restricted to about 50 participants.
