    A New Look at Nonlinear Dynamics - Fundamental Physics, Shocks and Metamaterials

    Nonlinear dynamics as a subject began in the late 1600s and matured into a broad based area in the late 20th century. The talk will shed light on the breadth of the subject, the characters that seem to inhabit the nonlinear world, how they interact, and the newly introduced quasi-equilibrium phase. What nonlinear dynamics gives us in terms of making novel metamaterials and technologies will be highlighted.
