An important class of physical systems has been called superintegrable because they admit more integrals of motion than degrees of freedom. These integrals form interesting nonabelian algebras, usually finitely generated polynomial ones. Historically the best known superintegrable systems were the Coulomb-Kepler system and the harmonic oscillator. Presently, infinite families of such systems are known and have applications in areas ranging from elementary particle physics to semiconductors and aeronautical engineering. Their mathematical applications mainly concern special function theory, and in particular orthogonal polynomials of continuous and discrete variables.

The participation fee will be US$200 for researchers and US$50 for graduate students.
The monies will be administrated by the Centro Internacional de Ciencias AC.
This page will be updated according to progress in the organization.

During the following week, February 27 – March 2, there will be a Gathering at CIC,
for a smaller number of participants interested in continuing interaction with their colleagues,
in a relaxed atmosphere, conducive to joint work.
