Grant for Brazil-EU partnership in dynamical systems

The Mathematics Department at Surrey is part of a EU team that has been awarded an International Research Staff Exchange Scheme (IRSES) by the Marie Curie EU FP7 program.  The project title is “Brazilian-European Partnership in Dynamical Systems“.  The other EU partners are Imperial, Warwick, Augsburg, Dresden, ICTP, Pisa, CNRS, Porto, St Andrews, Paris, IM-Poland, Sevilla, Queen Mary, Porto, IST  & UBI (Portugal),  KTH (Sweden), Amsterdam, and Liverpool.  The coordinator for the Surrey node is Mark Roberts.  The grant provides 40 mission-months of funding for collaborative visits between nodes, as well as funding for focused meetings and workshops. The principal areas of research collaboration are nonautonomous dynamical systems, ergodic theory, low-dimensional dynamics, Hamiltonian systems and bifurcation theory.  The grant runs for four years and starts in January 2013.
