IUTAM Symposium on New Applications of Nonlinear and Chaotic Dynamics in Mechanics

Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, USA

27th July-1st August 1997


The meeting is strictly by invitation only. To be considered for invitation, please contact the chairman Prof Francis C. Moon (


The field of nonlinear and chaotic dynamics has had significant impact in the last decade. Yet the field is in transition from single degree of freedom problems toward high-dimensional, spatio-temporal phenomena and multi-body problems. Other emerging areas include transient chaos, control of chaos, and problems with more realistic nonlinearities such as dry friction, fracture and materials processing dynamics. New methods of data analysis are now emerging based on nonlinear and chaotic dynamics that will allow one to reconstruct models of dynamical systems from experimental data.

Evidence of this transition was presented at the successful IUTAM meeting in London in 1993. The goal of the current IUTAM symposium is to bring together both theoreticians and experimentalists to discuss new problems and applications of nonlinear and chaotic dynamics that treat emerging areas of the field related to mechanics.

Some of the areas include:

The Symposium aims to attract dynamicisits with technological applications of nonlinear dynamics in areas such as:
