Out of the following departments, which of them would you consider to be good graduate programs for me to look at if I were interested in dynamical systems? If none of them are particularly good programs for dynamical systems, which ones would you suggest instead?
Boston University Mathematics
Brown Applied Mathematics
Cornell Applied Mathematics
Georgia Tech Mathematics
Indiana University Mathematics
Penn State Mathematics
Which of these programs for dynamical systems?

Re: Which of these programs for dynamical systems?
I don't know about the other programs but Penn State has Dmitry Burago working on dynamical systems and he is very strong. So if you're interested in dynamical systems you should look him up, I think it is worth applying to Penn State to work with him.
Re: Which of these programs for dynamical systems?
Can you please be more specific about what you mean by dynamical systems? This phrase can mean a lot of different things: e.g. applied math, abstract topological dynamics, ergodic theory...
Re: Which of these programs for dynamical systems?
Most of the dynamical systems courses I've had so far have been pretty much limited to phase space topology of ODEs, but I'm also interested in the behavior of PDEs and more generally in mathematical physics (so, Hamiltonian systems, chaos theory, etc.).
