eigenvaluesA dynamical system is a set of functions that depend on each other. For example, dynamical systems are often present in ecosystems: more plants mean more plant-eaters, and more plant-eaters mean fewer plants. These systems can be difficult to predict, as one thing affects another, which affects the first, which affects the other, and so on.

Fortunately, dynamical systems can be simplified. This lecture focuses on an important type of dynamical system that can be solved with some creative usage of matrices. We’ll also discuss the related concept of “eigenvalues,” a simple concept with some very interesting implications.

Please join us for the last math circle of the Spring Semester!
