The project Jangada Dinâmica aims to boost the areas of dynamical systems and ergodic theory in the Northeast of Brazil, thus helping to strengthen basic science in a region that historically has lower percentage of development in the country.
With an expected duration of five years, the project make UFC as a hub between national and international researchers, via the following activities:
Marco Antonio Lopez obtained his PhD at The University of North Texas in 2018, under the supervision of Mariusz Urbanski, and later was a teacher scholar at Wake Forest University. His research focuses on problems about shrinking target sets.
Lopez worked at UFC from September 2021 until December 2022.
Luis Pedro Piñeyrúa is a Uruguayan mathematician. He obtained his PhD at Universidad de la República in 2022 under the supervision of Rafael Potrie and Martín Sambarino. His main interests are dynamical systems and ergodic theory, more precisely partially hyperbolic systems. He has been working on robust transitivity, dynamical coherence and accessibility.
Piñeyrúa arrived at UFC in September 2022.
Aline Melo obtained her PhD at Pontifícia Universidade Católica of Rio de Janeiro in 2023, under the supervision of Silvius Klein. Her research focuses on continuity of Lyapunov exponents.
Aline arrived at UFC in March 2023.
The 7th Brazilian School of Dynamical Systems will occur between 23-27 October, 2023, and it will occur in-person at UFC, Fortaleza. The information about minicourses and talks can be found in its official website.
The 2nd Jangada Dinâmica will 0ccur between 31st October and 4th November, 2022, at UFC, Fortaeza. We expect to have 16 talks of researchers covering different areas of dynamical systems and ergodic theory, see the official website.
