Applications of Nonlinear Dynamics to Problems from Industry and Nature

10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Room: Wasatch A/B

This minisymposium will focus on applications of nonlinear dynamics to industrial problems. Although the speakers will discuss a broad range of work, all of the talks satisfy three criteria: (1) the problem originated from outside the nonlinear dynamics community, (2) the methods used to successfully solve the problem come from the nonlinear dynamics community, and (3) the criteria used to measure success come from the community that originated the problem. The last criterion is important because the originator of a problem often gauges success using criteria that are different from those used by the nonlinear dynamics community.
