10:00 AM-12:00 PM Ballroom III - Level B
The talks in this session discuss applications of control and shadowing. The applications include laboratory experiments with a bouncing ball and a double pendulum that use targeting to reach prespecified states; the control of pendulation in a crane attached to a rocking ship; theoretical and numerical results on control in a system whose phase space consists of chaotic sets and KAM surfaces; and a discussion of the limits of deterministic modeling. The notion of "control of chaos" has received a great deal of attention in recent years. The experiments to be discussed in this minisymposium are among the first to (1) deal directly with the "targeting of chaos" problem in a laboratory setting and (2) to discuss applications with real industrial/military importance.
