MATH 489 P14 - Dynamics & Differential Eqns
Studies mathematical theory of dynamical systems, emphasizing both discrete-time dynamics and nonlinear systems of differential equations. Topics include: chaos, fractals, attractors, bifurcations, with application to areas such as population biology, fluid dynamics and classical physics. Basic knowledge of matrix theory will be assumed. Course Information: 3 or 4 undergraduate hours. 3 or 4 graduate hours. 4 hours of credit requires approval of the instructor and completion of additional work of substance. Prerequisite: One of MATH 284, MATH 285, MATH 286, MATH 441.
Graduate students requesting the 4 credit hour section must first register for the 3 hour section. If the instructor is willing to offer extra work to graduate students for the 4-hour section, students can get an approval form from 313 Altgeld Hall between the first day of the semester and the 8th week of the semester
