Non Linear Cosmology Program
"Caustics and Cosmological Structures"
11-15 July 2005  Marseille

Bulletin (1)

The goal of the Non Linear Cosmology Program (NLCP) is to bring together specialists on nonlinear approaches in cosmology, physics, astronomy and mathematics, to work on the dynamics of cosmic structures. The previous workshops were held in Nice (2003, 2004), they were devoted to "reconstruction methods". This year's topic focuses on the formation and the analysis of Dark Matter Caustics.

The Organizers :

The International Scientific Committee : U. Frisch (Nice, France), S. Shandarin (Kansas,USA), R.Triay (Marseille, France)
The worshop : Any wish for presenting a lecture/seminar should be addressed to "triay at" by notifying title/abstract and  related papers identification codes on specified websites (spire,..). A small number of working-talks is envisaged in order to promote discussions and possible improvements instead.

Location : Centre International de Rencontres Mathématiques (CIRM) is located on University de la Méditerrannée Campus (Luminy) beside a pine-tree forest, and near the Calanques (famous cliffs on the Marseille-Cassis sea border). Within a 20 minutes walk from the sea, it might be wise to wear comfortable walking shoes (because of rocky ways) and to have a flashlight to make the walk easier by night.

Accommodation : Accommodation is provided at CIRM (shared or single rooms).  Please specify in the registration form with who you want to share the room. The cost of living per day depends is about  60 €  for a shared double room and 70 € for a single room, including 3 meals. See website CIRM for further informationst .
