The minisymposium brings together four experimentalists working on spatio-temporal disorder/chaos (STC) in vastly different systems. This minisymposium will address STC in chemical oscillations, in the aggregation of slime mold amoebae, in optical resonators, and in thermal convection. Spatio-temporal chaos appears to be a generic state occurring in dynamical systems when the system size (aspect-ratio) is increased and spatial degrees of freedom become important. To date, no clear understanding of spatio temporal chaos has emerged. This minisymposium is set up to attract the attention of the "dynamical" community to the problem of spatio-temporal chaos. It will also show that we have well-defined and controllable experimental systems that allow quantitative comparison with theories.
Organizer: Eberhard Bodenschatz
