Software and Algorithms in Dynamical Systems

Numerical computations have provided inspiration for many significant discoveries about dynamical systems. Nonetheless, it is often difficult to directly compute interesting aspects of the dynamics of a system. Numerical analysis, symbolic computation, visualization and the design of interfaces that facilitate interactive exploration of a system's behavior all contribute to the study of dynamical systems. Powerful desktop facilitate the development of more sophisticated tools and the exploration of more complex systems. The speakers will discuss recent work in developing computational tools for the analysis of dynamical systems.
