MATH 27 Dynamical Systems with Applicaitons

Dynamical systems theory is the branch of mathematics that studies the properties of time-evolving phenomena. It finds a great variety of applications in areas spanning physics, engineering, ecology, finance, among many disciplines.

Math 27 is an introductory course, studying aspects of dynamical systems that evolve in discrete time, as well as continuous-time systems described by ordinary differential equations. A primary objective will be to explore and understand the qualitative properties of dynamics, such as the existence of attractors, periodic orbits and chaos. We will do this by means of mathematical analysis, as well as simple numerical experiments.

Degree Requirement Attributes


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
