"Statistical physics of social dynamics: opinions, semiotic dynamics and language"
Directors: Vittorio Loreto and Luc Steels
Satellite Workshop of STATPHYS 2007 (9-13 July 2007).

Statistical mechanics has proven to be a very fruitful framework to describe phenomena outside the realm of traditional physics. The last years have witnessed the attempt by physicists to study phenomena which heavily rely on human behavior, like the dynamics of financial markets and the emergence of collective organization in social systems. Social interactions are usually local: every individual interacts with a limited number of its peers, which is negligible as compared with the total number of people inside a community. In spite of that, human societies are characterized by a number of stunning global regularities. There are remarkable transitions from disorder to order, like the emergence of a common language/culture or the creation of a consensus about a specific topic. The conference will specifically focus on three major research lines, i.e. opinion dynamics, cultural dynamics and the evolution of language.

Technical University of Graz (Austria)
July 9 - 13, 2007

This summer school is supported by the Austrian Science Foundation (FWF) and is part of the National Research Network "Analytic Combinatorics and Probabilistic Number Theory".

The summer school is designed for PhD-students and young Post-Docs with some background in ergodic theory and number theory. We kindly ask you to distribute this announcement among young mathematicians that are interested in these topics.

In particular, the program provides four courses on recent developments in the interplay between dynamical systems and number theory:

○ Vitaly Bergelson: Ramsey Theory, Uniform Distribution, and Ergodic Theory
○ Manfred Einsiedler: Dynamics on Locally Homogeneous Spaces
○ Douglas Lind: Dynamics, Algebra, and Number Theory
○ Thomas Ward: Dynamical Properties of Commuting Automorphisms

International Conference in honor of Yakov Pesin on his 60th birthday
Lisbon, Portugal
June 25-29, 2007

To celebrate Yakov Pesin's 60th birthday, the Conference "Nonuniformly Hyperbolic Dynamics and Smooth Ergodic Theory" will be held in Lisbon in June 25-29, 2007. You are cordially invited to participate.

Topics will include the subjects of his landmark works and those on which he exerted the strongest influence (including nonuniform hyperbolicity, smooth ergodic theory, partial hyperbolicity, thermodynamic formalism, dimension theory in dynamics, and related subjects).

In addition to the purely mathematical talks, Anatole Katok will speak with some recollections on the Moscow mathematical school in the seventies, early stages of Yakov Pesin's mathematical career and early
impact of his work.

Organizers: Luis Barreira and Anatole Katok

Centro di Ricerca Matematica Ennio De Giorgi, Pisa, Italy
June 11 - July 6, 2007

The CMI school will take place within the framework of a research trimester on dynamical systems and number theory at the De Giorgi Center. The trimester begins on Apr 16. Please refer to the De Giorgi Center for more information about the trimester  (

Summer School Program Description

Designed for graduate students and mathematicians within five years of their Ph.D., the program is an introduction to the theory of flows on homogeneous spaces, moduli spaces and their many applications.

These flows give concrete examples of dynamical systems with highly interesting behavior and a rich and powerful theory. They are also a source of many interesting problems and conjectures. Furthermore, understanding the dynamics of such concrete system lends to numerous applications in number theory and geometry regarding equidistributions, diophantine approximations, rational billiards and automorphic forms.

The school will consist of three weeks of foundational courses and one week of mini-courses focusing on more advanced topics.

Foundational Courses

The following 3 week lecture series will be held:

     ● "Unipotent flows and applications" Alex Eskin & Dmitry Kleinbock
     ● "Diagonalizable actions and arithmetic applications" Manfred Einsiedler & Elon Lindenstrauss
     ● "Interval exchange maps and translation surfaces" Jean-Christophe Yoccoz

Shorter courses will be given by Svetlana Katok and Shahar Mozes. Advanced minicourse will be given by Nalini Anantharaman, Artur Avila, Hee Oh, Akshay Venkatesh and others.

 The Association for Women Mathematicians (AWM) is holding a workshop for women grad students and recent PhDs in conjunction with the SIAM applied dynamical systems meeting at the end of May 2007. The deadline for applications has been extended to January 15, 2007. Info on applying can be found at

This is a fantastic meeting for people working in dynamical systems and/or applied mathematics. (See .) The AWM workshop will give women students and postdocs a chance to meet up with potential professional mentors and peers, and to showcase their research. Please pass this on to women students & postdocs who might benefit from this opportunity.
