Room: Golden Cliff
A quick glance at the literature might suggest that the tools of modern nonlinear dynamics have only a few significant applications to communications, chiefly the Pecora-Carroll protocols for secure communication via chaotic synchronization. The speakers in this symposium will touch on synchronization, but will also explore a wider range of applications. They will discuss the use of dynamical systems to generate novel codes, the interplay between nonlinear time series analysis and cryptographic assault, and the self-similar structure of telephone traffic.
