The NOMA’13 International Workshop on Nonlinear Maps and Applications will be held on September 3 and 4, 2013 in Zaragoza, Spain. This is the fourth edition of a series of international conferences whose previous meetings were held in Toulouse (Noma’07), Urbino (Noma’09) and Évora (Noma’11). This workshop brings together researchers from theoretical and application areas (mathematics, physics, economy, engineering) who are pioneering in the study of nonlinear discrete systems. The conference is organized and hosted by the Universidad de Zaragoza, in the Faculty of Science, located in the south center of Zaragoza.
Nonlinear iterative processes play an important role in physical, biological and social phenomena. Nonlinear mappings can directly model many systems in different domains, as Engineering, Physics, Economics, Biology, etc., or they can be obtained via numerical methods permitting to solve differential non linear equations. In both cases, the understanding of specific behaviours and bifurcations of this type of systems is of the greatest interest. This workshop is open to theoretical studies as well as applicative ones. Contributions in the fields of Economics, Electronics, Biology, Computational methods, Engineering, Telecommunications, besides other more fundamental lectures, are wellcome. Mathematicians, Physicists, Engineers, Economists, and in general the specialists in the field of Nonlinear Systems, are invited to share their last contributions and developments in nonlinear discrete systems by participating in this conference.
