research overview

  • James Meiss has published 118 refereed articles and four books. His research is on Hamiltonian, symplectic and volume preserving dynamics, the transition to chaos, the theory of transport, and computational topology. Problems studied include the break-up of invariant tori in conservative systems, the structure of tangles in stable and unstable manifolds, transport in a dynamical system through a complex mixture of regular and chaotic regions, quantifying and optimizing mixing in laminar, time-dependent fluids, and categorizing the topological properties of simplicial complexes approximating the invariant sets and motion of a dynamical system.


  • dynamical systems, Hamiltonian and Volume preserving dynamics, transition to chaos, transport and mixing, piecewise smooth dynamics and bifurcations, nonautonomous dynamics, computational topology
