Variables, dimensions and dynamics: Order and Chaos in Physics

Course

Description

The central theme of this course is the analysis of dynamic processes in physics (and in other disciplines) using dimensional analysis, formulating and solving (analytically and numerically) the evolution equations for physical quantities. Especially vibrations, instabilities, catastrophe theory and chaos are topics to be discussed with corresponding attention to the necessary mathematics.
