An interview with Jacob Palis

An interview with Jacob Palis

Jacob Palis is world-famous for his work on the fundamental theory of hyperbolic dynamical systems and more recently for proposing a global scenario for a typical system in parameter space and a typical trajectory in the space of events. He is one of the most influential mathematicians in Latin America having advised more than 40 PhD theses of students from 11 different countries. He has gained additional stature as one of the most thoughtful advocates for the development of mathematics in the developing world. Henk W Broer (University of Groningen) interviewed him at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy.
