From elliptic islands to hyperbolic waves

Celebrating Pedro Duarte's 60th birthday

PUC-Rio / UFRJ, Rio de Janeiro - Brasil

This event, consisting of an international conference on Dynamical Systems and a special edition of the EDAÍ seminar, celebrates Pedro Duarte's 60th birthday by focusing on his research interests.

The main topics covered in this meeting are: the standard map with its challenges, including the existence of elliptic islands; isospectral reduction theory and stationary measures on infinite graphs; hyperbolic billiards; statistical properties of linear cocycles presenting hyperbolic waves, as well as positivity and continuity of their Lyapunov exponents; the study of ergodic Schrödinger operators in mathematical physics.

The (spectral) gap between the two-day conference at the beginning of the week and the one-day EDAÍ seminar (a traditional carioca event in dynamics) at the end of the week, will allow speakers and participants to collaborate with local researchers.


  • The conference: 29 and 30 August 2022, from 10:00 to 18:00
  • The EDAÍ seminar: 02 September 2022, from 10:00 to 18:00


  • In order to help the organizers with the practicalities of the event, all participants have to register in advance.

The objective of this course is to provide students with basic knowledge of R programming, allowing them to manipulate and visualize data with R.

The course aims at enabling the participants to use different methods to measure the impacts of pollutants on ecosystems. Basic knowledge will be provided through theoretical and practical lessons on how to select and use the most suitable metrics based on the analysis of multiple compartments of the ecosystems.

This course offers an overview of the different ways to measure biodiversity, and provides tips for the stratification of primary biodiversity data and the construction of variables that describe its various facets. It also includes an in-depth review of the different types of data used to measure biodiversity and their problems and limitations.

The goal of this course is to provide participants with current and practical knowledge on urban ecology, including its ecological and social aspects.
