Summer School: Bifurcations, Chaos, Non-invertible maps and Applications. (Grenoble, Sept 4-8th 1995).

School Program

Monday September 4.

Tuesday 5 September

Wednesday 6 September

Thursday 7 September

Friday 8 September


This school is intended for researchers coming across Non Linear Dynamics through work in Engineering (Control, Electronics, Signal Processing, etc), Physics, and even in Economics, Populations Dynamics...

Taking into account the wide "spectrum" of potential participants, the lectures will be aimed at researchers who do not have a background in Nonlinear Dynamical theory. In particular sophisticated mathematical developments and considerations will be avoided. Our aim is to give the participants a basic understanding of nonlinear dynamics, sufficient for them to analyse and synthesis problems in their own speciality.

One of the aims of the School is to provide basic information and present significant, and recent, applications, for example the synchronisation of chaos in circuits. Our other aim is to present the general properties of models in the form of non-invertible maps. Until recently research in this area has been limited to a few groups, but applications are now being found in in theoretical and applied fields.

More details on theoretical aspects, and complementary applications, and a wide bibliography will be provided during the course of the School. In addition video supports and computer diskette will be furnished by some lecturers.

The Friday afternoon has been reserved for presentation of computer programs, video films and discussions on problems related to the school matter.
