PHYS 280: Nonlinear Dynamics


[4 units]

Most processes encountered in nature are inherently nonlinear. This course introduces the main topics of low-dimensional nonlinear systems, with applications to a wide variety of disciplines, including physics, engineering, mathematics, chemistry, and biology. Specific topics include maps and flows in one and two dimensions, phase portraits, bifurcations, chaos, and fractals.

Prerequisite: (PHYS 008  or PHYS 008H ) and MATH 023  and MATH 024 . Normal Letter Grade only. Discussion included. Conjoined with PHYS 180 .
