Physics 5413  Chaos, fractals, and nonlinear dynamics 


OverviewProjects
Examples and extra materialNote: Most of the Java applets are unsigned. If you wish to run them on your own computer, you may have to add Java security exceptions for the corresponding sites (and accept the resulting lower security). Chapter 1  What is chaos?
Logistic map: Time evolution Chapter 3  Dynamics in state space
Chemical oscillations, part of the IDEA project at Washington State Univ. Chapter 4  Threedimensional state space and chaos
Lorenz applet Chapter 5  Iterated maps
Lyapunov exponent of the logistic map Chapter 6  Quasiperiodicity and chaos
Periodic vs quasiperiodic motion Chapter 7  Intermittency and crises
Intermittency in the logistic map, and in the
Lorenz model Chapter 8  Fractal dimensions
