M.C. Luis Javier Ontañón García Pimentel (Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí, MX): Scrolls, multistability and data encryption with chaotic unstable dissipative systems
Thu, 01/16/2014

Everyone is welcome at the seminar/lecture given by our guest. The lecture will start at 11am at K14 seminar room at KN:E and will take about 1 hour.

Abstract: Chaos, an extremely studied area which yet unveils a huge variety of unknowns, has taken scientists for the last decades to develop different methods and approaches in order to suppress or induce its behavior in our surrounding environment. So far it is known that there are two possibilities to acquire a chaotic system:

i) Through the multiplication of variable states (as in the Lorenz or Rössler systems).
