WORKSHOP "Collective dynamics in coupled oscillator systems"
Berlin, November 24 - 26, 2014

Main page
Registration / Abstract

Recent research showed that systems of coupled oscillators can exhibit a huge variety of collective behavior and complex dynamical regimes. The understanding of such phenomena, as e.g. the emergence of various types of coherence incoherence patterns, sometimes called "chimera states", implicates intriguing questions from various fields of mathematics. The workshop is intended to discuss approaches including dynamical systems theory, statistical physics, stochastic phenomena, applications, and experiments.
