Interacting with Chaos
home logistic map Hénon Lorenz pendulum glossary bibliography links
German version

Welcome to the website of Robert H. Doerner!

This site is dealing with non-linear dynamics or chaostheory, resp. Characteristics of deterministic chaotic systems are presented using four sample systems, starting with the logistic map and ending with the driven damped pendulum. Each chapter contains a Java applet, where the user can adjust  parameters and explore the systems behaviour. Further there is a short explaining text for each of the systems and  a bibliography.  Important and frequently used terms (chaos, e.g.) are listed in a glossary. Finally, there is a list of links to sites which are dealing with nonlinear dynamics, too.

Have fun!!!

Two technical remarks: in order to display the pages correctly, please activate Java and Javascript in your browser options. A fast PC with a fast graphics adapter is recommended especially when rotating the 3D-Applets.
