Winter 2020/2021 BMSCourse Dynamical SystemsRecitation sessions: Alejandro Lopez Schedule, Wintersemester 2020/2021Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:1512:00If you are planning to attend, we would be really grateful if you let us know by joining the KVV site of the course, so that we can have a rough idea of how many students to expect. Information on how to join the lectures will be released via KVV. Additional materials will be provided for download. Pass CriteriaSolve correctly at least 25% of the assignments. Hand in solution attempts for at least 50% of the assignments. Present a correct solution to an assignment on the blackboard in the recitation session at least once. Pass the written exam.Written ExamThe written exam will take place on Tuesday February 23, 10:0012:00 Berlin time.More information in the KVV site of the course! Resit Exam (Nachklausur)The resit written exam will take place on Tuesday April 13, 10:0012:00 Berlin time.More information in the KVV site of the course! AudienceStudents of mathematics or physics, including teachers, from semester 3. Direct access to thesis projects: bachelor, master, dissertation. Students interested in dynamical systems are also welcome to participate in the seminar Geschichte(n) der Dynamik.TopicsDynamical Systems are concerned with anything that moves. Through the centuries, mathematical approaches take us on a fascinating voyage from origins in celestial mechanics to contemporary struggles between chaos and determinism. The three semester course, aimed at graduate students in the framework of the Berlin Mathematical School, will be mathematical in emphasis. Talented and advanced undergraduates, however, are also welcome to this demanding course, as are students from the applied fields, who plan to really progress to the heart of the matter. Although the course is offered as part 2 in the series, having a very basic knowledge on ODE theory should suffice in order to follow it. Here is an outline of the first semester:

TutorialsWednesdays 16:0018:00, via WebEx! More information in the KVV site.Homework assignmentsForm teams of two, work on four problems per week, submit at least two, get one right each week (on average). Submission procedure: email a .pdf or .jpg file of your solutions to your assigned tutor, before the deadline. Be prepared to explain any of your solutions (no matter whether your own or the solution by your team partner!) during any tutorial, live.
