Title: Noisy Competing Dynamics and Its Applications
Directors: Mark Iwen, Hyejin Kim, Tsvetanka Sendova
Dates of Program: May 12 - June 20, 2014
Mathematical models are powerful tools for understanding and exploring the meaning and features of dynamical systems, and they have been extensively used in various fields such as biology, physics, ecology, finance, economics and many others. Mathematical models are usually categorized into two groups - deterministic and stochastic. Since noise can play a significant role in the dynamics of some systems, stochastic dynamics can sometimes provide additional insight into real world applications. In this project students will model and simulate the competing dynamics of systems in the areas of biology and economics.
