About the course
Most processes in nature are complex and dynamical. This is also true for many problems encountered by engineers and scientists in their professional life. In this course you will get tools to analyse such dynamical systems. You will learn to determine if, when and how chaotic behaviour occurs. The course will focus on applications in fields such as physics, biology, chemistry and engineering. The previous experience of the participants will be taken into account and made use of in the course and the examples studied.
