Dear All,

Please join the Department of Applied Mathematics for a

*Special Seminar* - “This Talk Assumes only Univariate Calculus”

When: Tuesday, February 14, 2017, 12:45 pm - 1:45 pm

Where: RE 104

*Title: Will an Insect Outbreak Occur?*

*Speaker: Kiah Wah Ong **Department of Mathematics*

*Indiana University, Bloomington*

Abstract:  *Nonlinear phenomena dominate the world of both living and
nonliving things, *

*these include lasers, biological rhythms, genetic control systems, and
systems biology, to name a *

*few. Nonlinear dynamics is a subject that deals with nonlinear systems
that evolve in time. Questions such as will the system settles down to an
equilibrium, keep repeating in cycles, or do something more complicated are
at the heart of the subject. In order to give you a taste in these studies,
an example of in insect outbreak will be used to introduce some central
ideas in nonlinear dynamics such as bifurcation and hysteresis. *
