Interdisciplinary Seminar in Nonlinear Science

Title: Coupled oscillator arrays
Speaker: Bard Ermentrout
Speaker Info: University of Pittsburgh
Brief Description:
Special Note: More current information may be available at Plan-it Purple

This will be in some sense a continuation of the first talk in that I will focus specifically on a class of reduced models which arise with weakly coupled oscillators. I will use the reduction to first explain a psychophysical experiment in finger tapping. I will then briefly discuss 1-dimensional oscillator chains and applications to the olfactory lobe of the mollusk. I then describe general results in two- and three dimensions. The results in two-dimensions may apply to certain classes of waves seen in imaging of cortical networks.
