Conference

Applied Nonlinear Dynamical Systems and Chaos

Celebrating Stephen Wiggins’ 65th birthday
Royal Academy of Sciences, Madrid, Spain, 1-3 July 2024

Welcome

Welcome to the «Applied Nonlinear Dynamical Systems and Chaos» conference, a satellite event of the 9th European Congress of Mathematics.

Applied Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos has proven its relevance in recent decades due to its fruitful applications in many domains. This conference presents new advances in theory and applications in the field, encompassing among others: Transport and mixing in fluids and geophysical flows, dynamical systems, Hamiltonian systems, KAM theory, phase space geometry, chaos theory, chemical reaction dynamics, bifurcation theory, astrodynamics, etc.



Stephen Wiggins’ work has been dedicated to these topics since the early ’90s, and his research has left a lasting impact on these disciplines. This conference is an opportunity to commemorate his 65th birthday and pay tribute to his legacy.

Stephen Wiggins has been a Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Bristol since 2001, and currently holds the William R. Davis ’68 Distinguished Chair in Mathematics at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis. Before he served as Professor of Applied Mechanics at Caltech. Between 2012-2015 he chaired one of the ICMAT Severo Ochoa Laboratories.

His research has identified areas of science and engineering where new mathematical and/or computational advances are required to move the area forward, which has led to the synergistic development of science in different branches. He was one of first applied mathematicians to develop the area of chaotic advection, which began in the 1980s and still remains a very active area of research. Based on his work, in the early 90s, Prof. Wiggins was invited by the Office of Naval Research to explore ways of applying dynamical systems techniques to Lagrangian transport in oceanic flows.

He is the author of several influential books on dynamical systems, including “Introduction to Applied Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos”, a leading book in the field. He has explored further applications of dynamical systems resulting in books such as “Mathematical Foundations of Mixing: The Linked Twist Map as a Paradigm in Applications: Micro to Macro, Fluids to Solids”, “Lagrangian Transport in Geophysical Jets and Waves: The Dynamical Systems Approach”, or “Chemical Reactions: A Journey into Phase Space” among others. All of them describe significant breakthroughs in both mathematics as well as applications.
