|Title:||Robust mechanisms for chaotic dynamics|
|Seminar:||Department of Mathematics Colloquium|
|Speaker:||Amie Wilkinson, University of Chicago|
|What are the underlying mechanisms for robustly chaotic behavior in smooth dynamics? In addressing this question, I'll focus on the study of diffeomorphisms of a compact manifold, where "chaotic" means "mixing" and "robustly" means "stable under smooth perturbations." I'll describe recent advances in constructing and using tools called "blenders" to produce stably chaotic behavior with arbitrarily little effort.|
