Title: Lattice Structures in Dynamics
Abstract: The attractors in a dynamical system have a natural lattice structure, which provides an algebraic characterization of Conley’s decomposition of dynamics. The motivation for studying these structures is to develop algorithms to study global dynamics computationally.
In this talk I will present some recent work which shows that
there is no theoretical obstruction to computing these lattice
structures by using set-based, topological methods to
compute attracting neighborhoods. I will also describe some
ways in which these computational ideas may be applied.
