The Barcelona Dynamical Systems Prize is an international prize offered by the Societat Catalana de Matemàtiques, under the patronage of Prof. Carles Simó, to the author or authors of a paper or research work in the area of Dynamical Systems. The periodicity is two years (the first edition was 2015). The paper or work must be written in English.

Both discrete and continuous dynamical systems will be considered, whether finite or infinite-dimensional. The following aspects will be evaluated:

  • global rather than particular description of dynamics
  • new theoretical approaches
  • new methodologies and computational aspects, both numerical and symbolic
  • relevant applications to any domain of Science or Technology

In order to assess the aforesaid features, any previous work of the author or authors may be considered, if so requested in the submission letter and subject to the criterion of the Jury.

A Jury of five researchers in the area or neighbouring areas will be appointed by the SCM, and its composition will not be made public until after the resolution has been passed.

The amount of the prize is 4000€, subject to local withholding tax. The prize may not be awarded. Participation or presentation of candidates implies the acceptance of the present regulations.
