Dynamical Data Analysis

1:30 PM-3:30 PM
Hibiscus & Ilima (Salon 3 & 4)

There is great interest in applying methods of nonlinear dynamics to physical and biological systems. In situations where mathematical modeling on first-principles is unsuccessful or impossible, techniques have been developed to reach conclusions about the system through measured data. The speakers will present contributions to the state of the art of system reconstruction and statisical inference, particularly in the presence of chaotic dynamics and noise.
