The main goal of the workshop "Hamiltonian Dynamics and Celestial Mechanics. To honour Professor Kenneth Meyer in his 75th year" is doing honour to Professor Kenneth R. Meyer for his incredible career on the occasion of his 75th birthday.
Professor Meyer has been a guiding influence in Celestial Mechanics and Hamiltonian Systems for more than 40 years and has produced a voluminous and celebrated opus of work in Dynamical Systems in general, and Celestial Mechanics, in particular.
Celestial Mechanics and Hamiltonian Dynamics have been at the forefront of mathematical and physical research for 300 years. In the last decade there have been enormous strides in fundamental theory and in the physical applications. This conference brings together theorists and practitioners to discuss their current results.
May 30 to June 3, 2011 is the first week of Ken's 75 year (he will turn 75 in May 26th, 2012), so we want to start the celebration of this special date by gathering his friends, collaborators, students and all the people who have learned and shared interests with Ken. He loves Mathematics, he loves research, he loves teaching, he loves being with friends and colleagues. So we think that our best way to make a birthday celebration is to do Mathematics having fun with Ken during some days. This meeting is only a token of gratitude of the Mathematics community for his great contribution to it.
It is for us a great pleasure to have the opportunity of welcome to Spain a meeting with such a high scientific level. It is believed that speakers and participants will make this event one of the most relevant in Dynamical Systems during this year.
