APPLIED AND COMPUTATIONAL MATHEMATICS SEMINAR

**Speaker:** Gabriel Prajitura, Mathematics, College of Brockport, SUNY

**Title: ***
Linear chaos
*

**Abstract:**
We will discuss some metric and topologic properties of orbits of linear operators (density, irregularity, types of hypercyclicity, self density). The behavior of an orbit is, in many ways, extreme. Usually, there is no "in - between" case. For exmple, an orbit is either dense or nowhere dense. We will show some other properties of the same type.

**Time:** Friday, Oct. 3, 2008, 1:30-2:30 p.m.

**Place:** Science and Tech I, Room 242
