The geometry of chaos

The school of mathematical sciences colloquium continues with a talk on "the geometry of chaos in the Lorenz system", by Bernd Krauskopf (University of Auckland), on Friday April 17, 12pm in WGB_G02.

The geometry of chaos in the Lorenz system Bernd Krauskopf, The University of Auckland The three-dimensional Lorenz equations, featuring the famous butterfly attractor, are arguably the best known example of a system with chaotic dynamics. We will discuss how the transition to chaos is organised geometrically throughout phase space by smooth surfaces known as invariant manifolds. These objects have amazing topological and geometric properties; for example, in the chaotic regime the so-called Lorenz manifold lies dense in three-space.
