AE 554 - Dynamical Systems Theory
|Dynamical Systems Theory||ONL||62445||ONL||4||-||Cedric Langbort|
Fundamental concepts of nonlinear oscillations, structural stability, local and global bifurcations in the context of ordinary and partial differential equations; dynamic systems, structural stability and Lyapunov-Schmidt Reduction, bifurcations of equilibrium points, limit cycles and tori, the center manifold and Poincare normal forms, co-dimension two and higher order bifurcations, bifurcation theory of maps, the Birkhoff-Smale homoclinic theorem and horseshoes, Melnikov's method and Silnikov phenomena, period doubling, and other routes to chaos are covered in this course. Applications to engineering problems, such as aircraft at high angles of attack, pipes conveying fluid, and panel flutter are covered as well.
