Last month, Yitzchak Shmalo of Passaic presented original research at a key international conference on chaos theory, the area of mathematics that studies nonlinear topics that are impossible to predict or control effectively because of the complexity of the systems involved — think weather or the stock market.  The conference, “Llavefest: A Broad Perspective on Finite and Infinite Dimensional Dynamical Systems,” was in Barcelona, Spain, and drew many of the field’s most accomplished researchers.

Mr. Shmalo, who studied mathematics and philosophy at Yeshiva College and is now working toward a master’s degree in mathematics at YU, presented a paper that provides a simple proof of the existence of fixed points and periodic orbits in dynamical systems when certain conditions are satisfied.
