SDG meeting: Andrey Shilnikov -- Symbolic quest into homoclinic chaos

Title: “Symbolic quest into homoclinic chaos” 

Abstract: We demonstrate how the original computational technique, based on the symbolic
description and kneading invariants, can disclose the complexity and universality of
parametric structures and their link with nonlocal bifurcations in a few of
representative systems with strange attractors.  We explore the multi-fractal,
self-similar organization of heteroclinic and homoclinic bifurcations of saddle
singularities in the parameter space of these models.
