Join us to listen to Visiting Professor Subhadip Chowdhury of the College of Wooster discuss rotation number and dynamics on the circle. 

The theory of Dynamical Systems is the study of how something evolves over time. This includes population growth models, viral epidemic projections, and fancier topics like Chaos Theory and fractals. We will discuss one of the simplest and most fundamental dynamical systems: maps from the circle to itself (as a simpler version of periodic processes), and introduce a numerical invariant called "rotation number" that encodes interesting dynamical properties of such maps.
