Unit IV: First-order Systems

Limitations of the Linear: Limit Cycles and Chaos

« Previous | Next »

In this session we give a brief summary of further topics connected to differential equations. We start with the question of when nonlinear systems have closed trajectories. This is a hard question to answer and not much is known about it. We end with a brief (and very incomplete) description of some “chaotic” systems.
