Subject outline

What is chaos? How does it arise in dynamical systems? What other dynamical phenomena exist, or to put it slightly differently: what are the different kinds of dynamical systems? If one has a differential equation that exhibits chaos, how should one solve it? These are some of the ingredients of this unit. The exact mix of ingredients is adjusted from year to year, depending on students' interest and background.
