  1. A broadly applicable method for the identification of bifurcations in complex, multi-parameter dynamical systems

    16 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Daniel K Wells, Adilson Motter, William L Kath

    Traditional numerical bifurcation methods seek to identify and classify solutions in systems with small numbers of parameters. These methods have become canonical tools in determining how solutions of dynamical systems depend upon parameters. Of particular interest are bifurcation points, which...

  7. ICMS Tipping Points: Fundamentals and Applications

    13 Jun 2015 |

    Objectives: This workshop (September, 2013) brings together mathematicians and statisticians, whose research expertise is relevant to investigating threshold behaviour in complex environmental systems, with the climate scientists and ecologists who exploit mathematical modelling in their research...

  11. Midwest Mathematics and Climate Conference - Day 2 Afternoon Session

    12 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Colin James Grudzien

    Charles Jackson, University of Texas, AustinDual-state Behavior of the Community Climate System ModelIce age climate between 80,000 and 11,000 years ago experienced abrupt (< 10 year) global-scale climate transitions every few thousand years. Evidence and theory suggests such behavior may be...

  12. NBRIT Webinar 1/19/16: Peter Ashwin presents on Tipping Points for Parameter Shifts

    20 Jan 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Ashwin

    Abstract: It seems that a mathematical definition for tipping points or critical transitions in general may be very difficult owing to the wide range of phenomena that are usefully classified as tipping points. However in some contexts a definition that goes beyond classical bifurcations may be...

  13. New averaging results motivated by climate models: fat tails, oscillations, and tipping

    10 Dec 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Rachel Kuske

    We review recent results where new averaging approaches are developed and applied in the context of systems with multiple time scales and fat tails  and in non-autonomous multiple scale systems with oscillatory forcing.  These types of systems appear in a variety of higher dimensional...

  17. Vegetation patterns in mathematical models, and vegetation patterns in Horn of Africa

    21 Apr 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Mary Silber, Karna Gowda

    Visually striking large-scale spatial patterns of vegetation have been observed in semi-arid regions in the Americas, Africa and Australia. These have led to suggestions by theoretical ecologists that certain characteristics of the patterns may serve as early-warning signs of desertification....
