Recent trends in optimal control and partial differential equations

Probabilistic methods in dynamics



Many physical systems have been studied in the last decades using the geometric theory of dynamical systems. However, the more recent interplay between Probability Theory and Dynamical Systems has been more successful in developing analytical tools to give a good description of such physical phenomena. This will be a broad meeting, covering most active topics and attracting many of the very best researchers in the field. We expect plenty of interesting new developments to be presented at the conference.
