List of participants and talk

The onset and  dynamics of  a   magnetic  field  sustained  by  the  motion of  an electrically  conducting   fluid   (the  dynamo  problem),is  typically  one in  which a  multidisciplinary  expertise  is  very  important  in  order to solve  even  the  most  basic   questions.   The aim  of the   workshop  is  to  facilitate  interaction  and discussions  among  three major research areas  related to the dynamo problem:
                    1) large scale simulations
                    2) nonlinear dynamics - bifurcations, chaos and spatio-temporal data analysis
                    3) laboratory scale experiments.
         A major goal of the workshop is to relate theoretical developments in astrophysics, MHD  and dynamical systems  theory to recent simulation experiments and to the real experiments currently coming on line.
