Nonlinear Dynamics

Using systems of ordinary differential equations for a wide range of phenomena. 

Nonlinear dynamics is an interdisciplinary area of study that provides a mathematical framework for analysing phenomena, especially where there are many variables at work. Systems of ordinary differential equations are used as models for phenomena such as predator-prey dynamics, population growth, planetary orbits and climate patterns. This field has immense applicability in systems level thinking for analysing complex phenomena, especially in constructing meaningful solutions. 

In this course, you will learn the how to find fixed points of a system of nonlinear ODEs, how to use and modifying computer programmes to find solutions, and to use nonlinear models for your disciplinary area.
