Leader: Nuria Fagella (click here for the address of the University of Barcelona)

The Spanish team is based at University de Barcelona (UB), and is formed by members from several research groups in the area, all of them with long term expertise in research and training activities. In recent years, these groups obtained several major research grants and have run two Marie Curie early stage training sites, hosting several MC fellows from different European countries. The team has plenty of experience hosting and organizing international conferences (PhD-Euroconferenc CAD2000, ``Discrete dynamics” 1999, joined AMS-RMSE meeting (2003), yearly DANCE winter schools, etc). The team's specific expertise is in low dimensional topological dynamics, holomorphic dynamics in one variable and the transition to several complex variables. There is also a very strong activity in Hamiltonian dynamics, KAM theory and planar vector fields. The team members have research links with plenty of research groups across Europe and the US (in particular with teams 1,2,4,6 and 7).
