Prof. Mikhail Lyubich 
May 31- June 4, 1999 
Universitat de Barcelona
This is a series of five lectures taught by Professor Mikhail Lyubich, from the State University of New York at Stony Brook, USA. The course is entitled ``Real and Complex Dynamics''. Professor Lyubich has been elected as the ``European Mathematical Society Lecturer'' of 1999. His series of lectures are given in three places in Europe, see http://www.mat.ub.es/EMIS/etc/lecture.html for further information.
This event will be partially supported by EMS and the Vicerectorat de Recerca de la UB.

Real and complex one-dimensional dynamics have been in the focus of research for the past 20 years. The ideas of dynamics, statistical physics, geometric function theory and hyperbolic geometry (supported by computer experiments) came together to reveal many rich and fascinating structures. As a result, several central problems have been recently resolved. Among them are the proofs of the real Rigidity Conjecture, the Feigenbaum Universality Conjecture and the Regular or Stochastic Conjecture. Altogether it gives a complete picture of dynamics in the real quadratic family.
The subtitles of the five lectures are
