Research

research overview

  • Professor Bradley's research focuses on numerical and experimental studies of nonlinear and 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.

  • CSCI 4446 - Chaotic Dynamics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020 / Spring 2021
    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.
  • CSCI 4950 - Senior Thesis
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Spring 2019
    Provides an opportunity for senior computer science majors to conduct exploratory research in computer science. Department enforced restriction, successful completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours of Computer Science coursework and approved WRTG. May be repeated up to 8 total credit hours.
