Abstract: In this talk, we try to understand elements of chaos theory in dynamical systems numerically and graphically. We also try to understand the the various properties like period doubling and chaos of the famous Logistic Map. Along with it some other less known maps, the Tent Map and the Gauss Map will also be analyzed. In particular Gauss Map shows very interesting properties like coexisting attractors and reverse period doubling.The principal aim is to explore the deep relationship among dynamical systems, chaos and fractals, and to uncover structure even when order seems to be absent.Prerequisite :Mathematical Background till class 12.
