Elite program for dynamical systems? **Mathwonk Which school has an elite program for dynamical systems? I currently go to school in NY, and if possible, I would like to go to a grad school not in the Northeastern region. If I had to guess I would say: Penn State, Cornell, Stony Brook and Boston University since they all specific research groups dedicated to dynamics. But I checked UCLA, Berkeley and Stanford (three schools I was looking to attend possibly) and none of them seem to be extremely strong in dynamics. I also checked Harvard, only 1 senior faculty member is interested in dynamics. PSU, Cornell, SBU, BU are all on the east coast.
