NONLINEAR SCIENCE FESTIVAL III
June 12-15, 2001
The Technical University of Denmark, bldg. 306
The conference is following the Nonlinear Science Festival I, held at the
Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen, December 1998, and the
Nonlinear Science Festival II, held at Risø National Laboratory,
Roskilde, December 1999.
