The group studies a wide range of aspects of dynamical systems theory, such as Hamiltonian and dissipative dynamics, dynamical chaos in classical and quantum systems, dynamics of multi-scale systems, ergodic theory, random matrix theory, and bifurcation theory.
Applications include problems of celestial mechanics, plasma physics, semi-classical methods, atomic physics, and the dynamics of chemical reactions.
