Chaos in Dissipative Systems University of Sao Paulo
This discipline complement the study of evolution of dissipative dynamical systems presented during the graduation in Mechanics and other disciplines. The presented concepts and procedures are applied to non linear systems in classical physics and interdisciplinar science.
Study the main chaotic dissipative systems in classical physics and their applications in interdisciplinary areas, applying the theory of chaos to characterize them. Reproduce numerical examples of the main results described in text books.
Final grade determined by the average between grades from three numerical exercise lists and a seminar
Chaotic trajectories in dynamical systems described by maps. Chaotic trajectories in dynamical systems described by differential equations. Fractals. Periodic, quase-periodic, and chaotic attractors. Linear stability. Routes to chaos: crisis, bifurcations, intermitency. Control of chaos.
