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
