Room: Superior B
Lattice Dynamical Systems (LDS) emerged since mid-eighties as a new tool to study space-time dynamics. LDS also serve as an extremely useful tool for numerical modeling of spatially extended dynamical systems. More recently LDS were successfully used for a control of chaos in extended systems and for the studies of selforganization in spatially discrete systems. The speakers will discuss thermodynamics of LDS, control of extended dynamical systems, and order-chaos transitions and collective behavior in LDS.
