Description: Research in the Center for Nonlinear Dynamics concerns complex dynamics, chaos, and pattern formation in systems driven far from thermodynamic equilibrium. Experimental, numerical, and theoretical studies have revealed chaotic behavior and complex spatial patterns in a wide variety of fluid, chemical, and solid systems. Diverse chaotic systems have been shown to exhibit markedly similar, even "universal," behavior. Problems currently being studied include turbulence, convection, instability in flow between concentric rotating cylinders, dynamics and transport in planetary-type flows, crack propagation, hysteresis and defect patterns in solids, pattern formation in chemical systems, and fractal electrodeposition.
