On Wednesday 4th of October at 4pm in the MathLab, Ale Jan Homburg (UvA) will give an Amsterdam Dynamics seminar.
This talk also marks a special occasion: after a decade as professor by special appointment in our department, he is leaving us (and joining Leiden).
Title: Iterated function systems of linear expanding and contracting maps on the unit interval
Abstract: Classical iterated function systems, used to construct fractals, are built from finitely many contracting maps that are iterated randomly. We consider iterated function systems on the interval built from both expanding and contracting maps. We discuss how the dynamics depends on the Lyapunov exponent.
