 The objective of this cycle of short courses is to introduce graduate/advanced undergraduate students in Mathematics or Physics to some classical topics, mainly from Mechanics and ODEs, giving also a glimpse of some recent trends.  

The three courses will be held in the period March-September 2016 at Departamento de Matemática da Faculdade de Ciências  da Universidade de Lisboa, and  will consist of   lectures of approximately one hour,  their number depending on the course. Participation is free of charge. To register, please send an e-mail to one of the addresses below. More information on each course will be available closer to its date following the links below.
