10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Room: Ballroom I
Recent work on communicating with chaos has led to renewed interest in calculating topological entropy.The speakers will describe how reducing error rates in chaos communication schemes limits the allowed symbol sequences and thus decreases the topological entropy of the system, new numerical methods for calculating topological entropy in terms of average expansion rates, the identification of new desynchronization bifurcations in coupled chaotic systems using these methods, and discuss methods based on average expansion rates which permit efficient calculation of capacity dimension.
