Workshop on Dynamical Systems

GT MAP sponsored "Workshop on Dynamical Systems" to mark the retirement of Prof. Shui Nee Chow.

After nearly 30 years at Georgia Tech, Prof. Shui Nee Chow has officially retired.  This workshop will see several of his former students, post-docs, and friends, coming together to thank Shui Nee for his vision, service, and research, that so greatly impacted the School of Mathematics at Georgia Tech.

The workshop will be held in the Klaus building Room 1447

Poster can be found HERE.
