Title:Symbolic dynamics
Seminar:PMASS Colloquium
Speaker:Omri Sarig, The Pennsylvania State University
Abstract:
"Symbolic dynamics" is a technique for studying chaotic dynamical systems. The idea is to associate to every orbit a sequence of symbols and then study the combinatorial properties of the resulting sequences. I will describe a particular example: movement on a straight line on a negatively curved surface.
