Dynamical systems becomes an important field when we try understanding the interaction of observables in a large system. Linear systems are quite well understood but building up a complete theory for nonlinear systems is more difficult. In this course simple nonlinear maps are studied and they are characterized by the fact that they have a quite typical behavior and that they change in a typical way as the environmental conditions change. We conclude that it is relatively simple to provide examples of interesting phenomena provided the system is sufficiently complicated but considerably more difficult to limit the possible behavior.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
