This class gives an introduction to nonlinear dynamical systems as they arise in a wide range of areas of science and engineering. While the main goal of the class is to present the concepts and techniques needed for dealing with these systems it will do so from an applied perspective making contact with physical systems wherever possible. The course will build on the textbook Nonlinear Dynamics and Chaos: With Applications to Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Engineering by S. Strogatz.
Key topics to be discussed include
