Dynamics of Structured Systems

The "Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach" is an international research centre situated in the middle of the Schwarzwald in the south-western part of Germany. The Institute organizes around 50 one-week workshops per year where about 60 people gather for talks, research, and the famous walk through the woods for the Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte. This is an excerpt of the official report on the workshop held December 14-20, 2003 that was organized by Wolf-Jürgen Beyn, Bernold Fiedler, and John Guckenheimer.
