Upcoming Seminar

 

Math Journal Club: Critical transitions in the climate and in financial markets (part 2).

 

Time and place: Wednesday, 03/16/2011, 5:30-7:00 pm, Room BBH-135

 

Abstract: The theory of critical transitions uses differential equations and time series analysis to predict critical transitions in real-life systems ranging from the climate, ecology, medicine, and financial markets. We will continue discussing the article "Early-warning

signals for critical transitions", by Scheffer et al., Nature, Vol. 461, 2009, and "Tipping points in open systems: bifurcation, noise-induced and rate-dependent examples in the climate system" by Ashwin et al.
