Seminar: Delay Equations

Schedule, Summer 2016

Seminar:
Thursday 10.00-12.00, Seminarraum 130, Arnimallee 3

Description

In this seminar, we want to learn about the theory of delay equations and apply the theory to some examples such as models in control theory, epidemics, or the growth of a sunflower.
