Many spatially extended physical systems exhibit complex behavior in time as well as space. Such spatio-temporal chaos has been observed in fluid convection, chemical reactions, wide-area lasers, biological aggregation patterns, etc. and can be described by deterministic PDE. Concepts appropriate for low-dimensional dynamical systems are of limited use in these high-dimensional systems. This minisymposium explores new approaches for characterizing and controlling the dynamics of such systems.The talks will focus on large-scale properties (phase diffusion), emerging localized objects (defects, spirals,...) and their dynamical relevance, as well as the stabilization of embedded periodic states by time-delay feedback.
Organizer: Hermann Riecke
