Field talk:Dynamic Systems

I welcome any feedback on this page!

A specific question I'd like answered: I already posted on the Site programming questions page, but might as well put a note here as well. The field category for dynamical systems is called dynamic systems, without the -al. Is there a way to change the name of the category that would also change the name on all the pages that link to it?

A nice, simple page. The only way I think it might be good to expand it is to illustrate state space with an example, say a 2-particle physics example that becomes a trajectory in 6 dimensions, or a small economy in 5 goods that becomes a trajectory in 5-D.

I'm thinking of adding a More Concepts section after the existing Major Concepts section. In this section I would discuss maps, flows, and perhaps Poincare Sections.
Also, should I add more about how dynamical systems theory is used in other fields?

How 'bout starting

Roughly speaking, dynamical systems theory is the study of the long-term behavior of evolving systems.

History:

Maybe a few words about who started it, major contributors, etc.?

Expanding Page

"For example, perhaps I should define more terminology besides just state space, trajectory, and attractor. Or perhaps I should write more about the field's applications to other areas. I would like advice about this. I'd also love any feedback about what I have already written."

I think you're off to a very good start with this. As time permits, more terminology or applications would both be welcome, but don't feel you have to do it all, right now!
