This course aims to introduce and demonstrate mathematical and computational methods that can be applied to complex dynamical systems. The course will cover advanced topics including areas of current research interest in dynamics. Most of the techniques will build upon mathematical knowledge in Linear Algebra (MATH2501) and Differential Equations (MATH2120). At the end of the course students should be able to read research papers
from journals such as Physical Review E, Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and Theoretical and Physica A relating to Nonlinear and Statistical Dynamics. Students should also be able to apply methods from Nonlinear and Statistical Dynamics to interdisciplinary research problems.
