Dynamical Systems

Dynamical systems are systems which evolve over time according to fixed rules.

Image was created by B. Winn (Loughborough) (after E. Lorenz).

They can be used to mathematically model a wide range of natural phenomena, including celestial mechanics, plasma physics, atomic physics, and the dynamics of chemical reactions.

The dynamical systems group at Loughborough studies a wide range of aspects of dynamical systems theory, such as Hamiltonian and dissipative dynamics, dynamical chaos in classical and quantum systems, dynamics of multi-scale systems, ergodic theory, random matrix theory, and bifurcation theory.
