Research

research overview

  • Professor Bradley's research focuses on numerical and experimental studies of chaotic systems, emphasizing in particular the comparison of mathematical models with real systems. Several of her projects explore practical improvements in engineering designs - e.g., spacecraft orbits, electronic circuits, combustion chambers - attained via intentional induction of chaotic behavior. Professor Bradley also explores nonlinear-dynamics based approaches to computer performance analysis and design and artificial-intelligence tools that help scientists make sense of complex data.

Teaching

courses taught

  • CSCI 4446 - Chaotic Dynamics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Explores chaotic dynamics theoretically and through computer simulations. Covers the standard computational and analytical tools used in nonlinear dynamics and concludes with an overview of leading-edge chaos research. Topics include time and phase-space dynamics, surfaces of section, bifurcation diagrams, fractal dimension and Lyapunov exponents. Recommended prerequisites: PHYS 1120 and CSCI 3656 and (MATH 2130 or MATH 2135). Same as CSCI 5446 and ECEN 4423 and ECEN 5423.
