PI Math Club and Actuarial Students Club Events, 2016-17

  • Prof. A. Downs, IPFW Department of Political Science, When Math Mattered in Indiana, Dec. 7, 2016, at noon in KT 216
    • Math and politics collided in Indiana in 1897. The result almost was a new way to square the circle.
  • Prof. D. Vasquez, IPFW Department of Physics, Chaos in Dynamical Systems, November 16.  PDF
    • Systems that evolve with time, such as insect populations or fluid flows, sometimes present erratic and seemingly random behavior. Nevertheless, the systems are fully deterministic: the future can be completely determined from the current state of the system. In this talk, we will present two models that exhibit this type of behavior. We will explore a very simple model population model that shows a transition to chaos from a steady state, as we vary a single parameter. We will also present a combustion model that exhibits chaotic behavior as we vary the size of the domain.
