MA-UY 4474 Chaos and Dynamical Systems

4 Credits
Topics will include dynamics of maps and of first order and second-order differential equations, stability, bifurcations, limit cycles, dissection of systems with fast and slow time scales. Geometric viewpoint, including phase planes, will be stressed. Chaotic behavior will be introduced in the context of one-variable maps (the logistic), fractal sets, etc. Applications will be drawn from physics and biology. There will be homework and projects, and a few computer lab sessions (programming experience is not a prerequisite). | Offered in the spring.

Prerequisite(s): A grade of C or better in (MA-UY 1124  or MA-UY 1132  or MA-UY 1424 ) and (MA-UY 3044  or MA-UY 3054  or MA-UY 3113 )
Also listed under: MATH-UA 264 Chaos and Dynamical Systems
