In this course, students will be introduced to the modern study of dynamical systems, the interdisciplinary field of applied mathematics that studies systems that change over time. Topics to be covered include: phase space, bifurcations, chaos, the butterfly effect, strange attractors, and pattern formation. The course will focus on aspects from dynamical systems that are particularly relevant to complex systems. Students will complete group explorations and a substantial independent project. Prerequisites are the Calculus in Context sequence (or equivalent).
