August 22-29, the faculty of Science will host VII International conference on differential and functional-differential equations organized by RUDN University, Steklov Mathematics Institute and MSU. The Peoples' Friendship University of Russia (RUDN University), with the cooperation of the Steklov Mathematical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Lomonosov Moscow State University, is organizing the Seventh International Conference on Differential and Functional Differential Equations, August 22–29, 2014. In the framework of the conference, the International Workshop “Spatio-temporal dynamical systems” will take place, August 26–28, 2014. The Conference is a satellite of the International Congress of Mathematicians 2014, August 13–21, Seoul, Korea. The scientific program will consist of invited 45-minute lectures, invited 30-minute lectures, and 20-minute communications. A special session will be dedicated to the memory of Prof. S.I. Pohozaev. The conference will be devoted to classical topics of the theory of differential equations and different kinds of nonlocal interactions: ordinary differential equations, dynamical systems, partial differential equations, semigroups of operators, nonlocal spatio-temporal systems, functional differential equations, applications.
