Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course gives an introduction into nonlinear dynamical processes with examples taken from physics, astronomy, chemistry, meteorology, ;geology, biology, and mathematics. It iprovides also the basis for a follow-up course (Deterministic Chaos II: From dynamical chaos to molecular chaos in Statistical Physics) on nonequilibrium processes far from equilibrium. Nonlinear processes appear everywhere in nature. They belong to the fastest-growing fields in science. The topics discussed include: solitons versus chaos, one-dimensional maps, bifurcations,renormalization and universality, intermitteny and 1/f noise, dynamical chaos in systems of differential equations, linear stability analysis, stable and unstable manifolds, dissipative systems, fractals, Lyapunov instability.

Assessment and permitted materials

Oral examination at the end of the course

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Examination topics

Corresponding to the type of the course, theoretical and numerical (simulation) methods are used. Computer graphics is important.
