Dynamical systems

Master’s level
7,5 credits (ECTS)


The aim of the course is to give an understanding of theoretical concepts and practical aspects arising in the description of nonlinear dynamical systems: How is chaos measured and characterised? How can one detect deterministic chaos in an experimental time series? How can one control and predict chaotic systems? Applications in physics, biology, and economics are described.
