#10 Meeting: Workshop on Self-Similar Systems

International Workshop "SELF-SIMILAR SYSTEMS"
Dubna, Russia, July 30 - August 7, 1998

GENERAL INFORMATION:
The Bogoliubov Laboratory of Theoretical Physics of the Joint
Institute for Nuclear Research organizes an International Workshop
`Self-similar systems'. The workshop will be held in Dubna, a
small quiet town surrounded by forest on the bank of the Volga
river, 120 km north of Moscow. It will start on Thursday morning
July 30 and end Friday August 7, 1998.

The Workshop will be devoted to diverse aspects of self-similar
systems. The main attention will be paid to mathematically justified
theories (the wavelet analysis, solvable models of self-organized
criticality, quasicrystals, etc). There will be a special session
(around 5-6 August) devoted to the commemoration of the centenary of
Ya.L. Geronimus. This will put a particular emphasis upon orthogonal
polynomials (general theory and classical, semi-classical,
Laguerre-Hahn polynomials, etc).

An expected number of participants is 50-60, including a number of
people invited by organizers and students. There will be review
lectures of 45 min and shorter special seminars for
experts. Selection of talks is by the advisory and organizing
committees. Due to the interdisciplinary character of the workshop,
there will be introductory mini-courses: ``Time-frequency analysis
and wavelets" by B. Torresani, ``Wavelets and multifractals" by
S. Jaffard and ``Discretizations in Lie groups" by A. Iserles.

TOPICS TO BE COVERED:
- Wavelets and other self-similar functions
- Self-organized criticality
- Multifractals
- Orthogonal polynomials
- Eigenvalue problems with the singular continuous spectra
- Quasicrystals
- Self-structuring phenomena and turbulence
- Difference equations and numerical methods

ADVISORY COMMITTEE:
R. Askey (Madison) D. Dhar (Bombay)
A. Iserles (Cambridge) S. Jaffard (Paris)
V.K. Mel'nikov (Dubna) J. Patera (Montreal)
M. Schroeder (Gottingen) A.N. Sharkovsky (Kiev)
K. Sneppen (Copenhagen)
