Some Computational Changes in Dynamical Systems

10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Hibiscus & Ilima (Salon 3 & 4)

This minisymposium brings together software developers with mathematical biologists who have a need for advanced computational tools. The software is aimed at the numerical bifurcation analysis of (currently mostly ordinary) differential equations. One goal of the minisymposium is to expose software developers to the current and the anticipated future computational needs in a very important research area. Another goal is to make researchers in mathematical biology and other research areas aware of current capabilities and directions in software development. The intended audience includes anyone interested in the development or use of algorithms and software for the analysis of nonlinear phenomena.
