Leerdoelen  The learning goal of the course Caput Dynamical Systems and Chaos is to familiarize the student with advanced subjects from the theory of dynamical systems touching in particular on the aspect of chaotic motion. 1. The student is able to study an advanced subject from the field of dynamical systems by him/herself guided by the lecturer 2. The student is able to give a professional oral presentation on a specific subject from dynamical systems theory and explain the subject to his/her peers 3. The student is able to answer questions by others concerning his/her presentation 4. The student can explain and is able to relate a specific advanced subject area from dynamical systems theory to a broader context which might also include applications 

Omschrijving  In the Caput Dynamical Systems and Chaos special subjects from the theory of dynamical systems are studied. The subjects may vary from one academic year to the next academic year the course is given. Dynamical systems theory concerns the question of how systems evolve in time. This first of all concerns the longterm behaviour of systems which comprise stationary, periodic, multiperiodic and chaotic dynamics, but also transient behaviour is of interest. Moreover bifurcations or transitions between asymptotic states  in particular transitions between regular and chaotic motions  under variation of parameters are of great importance. Special stationary solutions or more generally invariant manifolds can also form the organizing centers for the dynamics in the state space of a dynamical system. The applications reach from molecular dynamics to celestial mechanics and extend to the life sciences, oceanography, climatology and other fields. The course will be given partly in the form of lectures and partly in the form of student presentations.
