Nonlinear Dynamics and Control

Lupe [1]

Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Eckehard Schöll, PhD [2] In the center of the activities of the group are theoretical investigations and computer simulations of nonlinear dynamic systems and complex networks. We study self-organized spatio-temporal pattern formation and its control by time-delayed feedback methods, and stochastic influences and noise. Our current research focusses on the deliberate control and selection of complex, chaotic, or noise-induced space-time patterns as well as dynamics of complex delay-coupled networks. As state-of-the-art applications we investigate power grids, optoelectronic and neural systems, in particular neuronal network dynamics, semiconductor lasers, and nonlinear dynamics in semiconductor nanostructures.
