Workshop on open problems in low complexity dynamics
8-9 Jul 2021 Amiens (France)


This meeting will concern dynamical systems, ergodic theory and relations with discrete mathematics, arithmetics and computer science with a special focus on open problems on low complexity dynamics.

This will be the occasion to present the state of the art of some (still)  open problems. Each  lecture will only last 30 min.  We plan an hybrid conference, i.e. in a conference room and at the same time online via Zoom.

A collection of the presentations of the problemswill be available online and  will be published in Hal/ArXiv. In the future, if  a relevant  progress is done on one  of these problems and after the agreement of the author, the document will be updated to mention the advances.



Important dates

The workshop is from

the 8th  to the 9th of July 2021
