Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Categorizing and visualizing basins of attraction
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Anda Xiong, UW Department of Physics
Abstract: With chaos research, the attention has been most often been given to topics like the chaotic attractor and the Lyapunov exponent, while less attention has been paid to the basin of attraction, yet the latter is essential for determining and calculating the multi-stability of a dynamical system. I will explain the concept of a basin of attraction and show a means for classifying basins into four different types and quantifying their size. I will show examples of attractor basins produced using a 3-D printer including the famous Lorenz system in an unusual regime where three attractors coexist.<br>
