## My Conclusions from the SIAM DS 05 Conference

#### 'Applications of Dynamical Systems' conference held May 22-26 in Snowbird, UT

##### Interesting people

Peter Kramer Stochastic stuff Tony Roberts Normal Forms, Holistic model, Central Manifold Theorm [Bob Pego] -- working on same Aggregation problem from the analiticasl point of view. other collaborators: Jonathan Wattis, Barbara Niethammer as people also working on the Becker-Doring equations from the analytical point of view Michael Ward mensioned Andy Bernoff and Robert Kohn in connection with some of the problems I'm facing.

##### Interesting topics to read

Absorbtion/desorbtion -- M. Katsoulakis (U Mass) KPZ Equation fluid dynamics with fluctuations fluctuation dissipation theorm screening effect help with instability in mean-field Singular Value Decomposition (aka Principal Component Analysis, Principal Orthogonal Decomposition, Factor Analysis?, Leading Principal Component) Normal Forms, Central-Manifold Theorm
