Course Descriptions

The curriculum of the program in the Department of Mathematics is designed to provide a broad education in both theoretical and applied mathematics. It also develops the scientific knowledge and the problem solving, computing, and communications skills that are critical to a successful mathematically based career.

MA 325 - Fractals and Chaotic Dynamical Systems

  • Credit Hours: 4R-0L-4C
  • Term Available: Arranged
  • Graduate Studies Eligible: No
  • Prerequisites: CSSE 220, and either MA 212 or MA 221
  • Corequisites: None

Emphasis on the mathematical and computer graphics foundations behind fractal images and the relationship between chaotic dynamics and fractal geometry. Self-similar fractals, random fractals with Brownian motion, and fractals generated from dynamical systems. Fractal dimensions. Iterated function systems. Chaos in one-dimensional maps.
