School of Mathematics Colloquium
Thursday, February 25, 2016 - 11:05am
1 hour (actually 50 minutes)
From theoretical to applied, we present curiosity driven research which goes beyond classical dynamical systems theory and (i) extend the notion of chaos to actions of topological semigroups, (ii) model how the human bone renews, (iii) study transient dynamics as it occurs e.g. in oceanography, (iv) understand how to protect houses from hurricane damage. The talk introduces concepts from topological dynamics, mathematical biology, entropy theory and mechanics.
