Samose Seminar Series : Symmetries and Dynamics

Date & Time: Friday, May 5th at 4pm (Tea/Coffee at 3:45pm)

Venue: Simons Centre, Ground Floor.

Speaker: Amit Vutha, ICTS and NCBS


Abstract:

Simply put, a symmetry of a dynamical system is any transformation that
takes solutions to solutions. Although symmetries constrain dynamics, the
symmetries of a dynamical system can be used in a systematic way to
analyze, predict, and understand general properties of these systems.
After reviewing definitions and major results, I will explore applications
of symmetry methods in various contexts. Some familiarity with the notion
of a group will be useful, but not necessary.
