19-20 MT3280: Non-Linear Dynamical Systems: Routes to Chaos

In this course, you'll study the behaviour of mathematical systems known as dynamical systems. These can be used to analyse the mechanism of spread of a disease, the stability of the universe or even the exciting world of the evolution of an economic system. You will be shown some of the secrets of the nonlinear world and the appearance of chaos. You will be introduced to significant developments achieved just in the last quarter of the 20th century in this subject area.
