Chaos and Non-Linear Dynamics

Graph of Lorentz equationsThe Sun workstation in Lindner Hall is used to model physical systems which are rather difficult to understand. Processes such as decay of particles can be studied. Dr. Marco Fatuzzo is most involved with this area of research, and new classes on complexity and astrophysics are being taught. Students have done research on pions and non-linear systems. The image on the right is a graph of the Lorentz equations.
