Most systems are nonlinear, but the nonlinearities are often ignored. This course’s objective is to provide tools for analyzing and simulating nonlinear systems. This course provides an introduction to geometrical concepts, analytical methods, Poincaré maps, strange attractors, bifurcation, normal forms, center manifold theory, Lyapunov stability, Lyapunov exponents, linearization about periodic orbits, Floquet theory, bifurcation analysis.
