Aims, contents and method of the course

ECTS Points: 1,5
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 (From dynamical chaos to molecular chaos in Statistical
Physics II, SS04) 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
