Dynamical Data Analysis in Biology

10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Room: Ballroom III

The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss current applications of time series analysis and control techniques in biological settings. The applications include the control of a cardiac arrhythmia; a dynamical characterization of tremor; the dynamics of a network of neurons in the mammalian hippocampus; and identifying saddle periodic points in noisy experimental time series.

Organizers: Eric Kostelich
Arizona State University
Timothy Sauer
George Mason University

10:00-10:25 Dynamic Control of Cardiac Alternans
Kevin Hall and Leon Glass, McGill University, Canada; David Christini and James J. Collins, Boston University; and Jacques Billette, Université de Montréal, Canada
10:30-10:55 Cross-Spectral Analysis of Tremor Time Series
Jens Timmer, Michael Lauk and C. H. Lücking University of Freiburg, Germany; and G. Deuschl, University of Kiel, Germany
11:00-11:25 Using Control Blindly to Find Unstable Periodic Orbits
Daniel T. Kaplan, Macalester College
11:30-11:55 Shedding Light on Neuronal Dynamical "Dark Matter"
Steven J. Schiff, Joseph T. Francis, Bruce J. Gluckman, and Paul T. So, George Mason University
