Nonlinear dynamics: Chaos, and what to do about it? info

PHYS 7224   Fall semester 2008 
Is this chaos course for me?  I already took a chaos course?  How is the course graded? I have to skip next lecture? Dog ate my homework?  Updating my project?  How much programming needed?  Should I submit my code along with the computational exercises?  How much prior stat mech exposure?

P. Cvitanović et al.,
All chapter and section numbers refer to the version 12 of the web e-textbook, unless stated otherwise. This course is the last (?) prepublication test run of the web e-textbook. Your active participation in improving the book is very much encouraged.

START: Tuesday Aug 19 2008, 12:05 in Howey S204

PLACE AND TIMES: Howey S204, Tu,Th 12:05-1:25

PREREQUISITES: A basic background in calculus, ordinary differential equations, classical and statistical mechanics. Weekly homework assignments require both analytic and numerical work, so familiarity with a programming language is a necessity.

TEACHING METHOD: Two lectures and a homework problem set per week.

EVALUATION METHOD: Weekly homework assignments and a term project individually tailored to student's level and research interests. For inspiration, consult Grades will be determined from the homework (60%) and the term project (40%) which takes the place of a final exam.

PROBLEM SETS: Please deliver solutions to problem sets by Tuesday, at the lecture, or place them in Predrag's mailbox.
