IDC402: Nonlinear dynamics, chaos and complex systems

        [Cr:4, Lc:3, Tt:1, Lb:0]

Course Outline

This aims to be a course in nonlinear dynamics and chaos with an interdisciplinary approach. The emphasis of the course will be on general concepts, illustrated by applications to problems in physics, chemistry and biology (ranging from mechanical vibrations to biological rhythms). In each illustration, the scientific background of the problem will be explained at an elementary level. The emphasis will be on the analysis of the dynamical equations that model the phenomena. The topic details are given below:
