Dynamic Systems & Ergodic Theory

Dynamic Systems & Ergodic Theory is a branch of analysis that studies the statistical properties of the involvement over time for a point in an ambient space. This topic has applications in many areas both within mathematics and in the real world, including but not limited to combinatorics, number theory, physics, and differential equations.

The image shown on the right is a picture of the Lorenz attractor, which arises in the study of a dynamical system called the Lorenz oscillator.
