Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Chaos theory from a topological perspective
Date: Tuesday, October 17th
Time: 12:05 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Anda Xiong, UW Department of Physics
Abstract: I will talk about some phenomena in chaos theory and how can they be viewed by topology, such as the connection between fractals and topological subdivision, and calculating the self-linking number of attractors. Furtherly I will give an example for how persistence homology can be helpful to research in chaos theory.
