#456 - Nonlinear Dynamics and Pattern Formation (10D01)
Pattern formation and nonlinear dynamics in chemical engineering encompass subjects of bifurcation, instability, and pattern formation in the areas of transport phenomena, biology, and chemical reaction engineering. The applications range from materials processing, biological processes, environmental studies, and microgravity physics. This session is about applied mathematical tools used to analyze nonlinear dynamical and pattern forming systems as well as experimental displays of phenomena.
