MAGIC: Dynamical Systems II (Maps) (MAGIC060)
There are no announcements
This course is part of the MAGIC core.Description
The course provides an introduction to the topological dynamics of iterated maps: circle maps, unimodal maps, Smale's horseshoe, Hyperbolic toral automorphisms, and polynomials C → C. There is an emphasis on symbolic techniques (kneading theory, Markov partitions, etc.) The aim is to provide an introduction to a broad range of topics, rather than to discuss any of the topics in great depth.Semester
