Chaos, Waterwheels, and the Lorenz Equations

Philip Treesh '13

Mathematics and Statistics Department Colloquium


Abstract:  In this talk, we will discuss the importance of the Lorenz Equations and their representation of chaotic systems.  In particular, we’ll show that a simple physical model of a waterwheel is a chaotic system represented by the Lorenz Equations.
