APPLIED AND COMPUTATIONAL MATHEMATICS SEMINAR

**Speaker:**Greg Byrne, George Mason University

**Title: ***
Differential Dynamical Systems: Biofluids and Chaos in Higher Dimensions
*

**Abstract:**
A useful class of autonomous dynamical systems exist in which each phase space coordinate except the first is the time derivative of the previous. In this talk I will show how such differential dynamical systems have been used to describe the dynamics of blood in intracranial aneurysms and study the structure of chaos in higher dimensions.

**Time:** Friday, April 5, 2013, 1:30-2:30 p.m.

**Place:** Planetary Hall (formerly S & T I), Room 242
