CalTitle1: Robust Mechanisms for Chaos
Auth: leo@ (ltzo2369) in SMS-WASM

Joint Colloquium: Wilkinson -- Robust mechanisms for chaos

What are the underlying mechanisms for robustly chaotic behavior in smooth dynamics? In
addressing this question, I’ll focus on the study of diffeomorphisms of a compact
manifold.  I’ll describe recent advances in constructing and using tools called
"blenders" to produce robustly chaotic behavior with arbitrarily little effort.
