COLLOQUIUM: Chaotic Dynamics in the Physical Sciences

Dr. Edward Ott
University of Maryland

 Chaos was discovered near the end of the 19th century in the seminal work of Henri Poincare. However, widespread impact of chaotic dynamics accompanied by rapid development of understand did not occur until a relatively long after Poincare's work (of the order of 90 years). This talk will review some this history and give some examples illustrating the broad range of these more recent developments and applications.
