Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Wada basins and distributed fields of determination
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (Refreshments will be served)
Speaker: UW Department of Asian Languages and Cultures, Steve Ridgely
Abstract: Wada Basins are spaces containing three or more subregions in which each boundary is shared by all subregions. This topological concept, attributed to Takeo Wada and described by his Kyoto University colleague Kunizō Yoneyama in 1917, has gained an afterlife through application to complex systems in which a “basin” of initial conditions might be said to exhibit the “Wada property.” The topological form of a Wada basin would seem to map determination across a distributed field such that indeterminacy would be inherent to the spatial form, well beyond a metaphor for systems about which we have insufficient information.
