Place: Research I Seminar Room

Abstract: The Hénon map is one of the most studied examples of dynamical systems that exhibit chaotic behavior. Of particular dynamical interest is the set of points which stay bounded under repeated iteration. The Hénon map depends on a parameter, and as you moves the parameter, you can follow these bounded points, and use this to understand the parameter space.
