# Colloquium: Lai-Sang Young (Courant) "Measuring Dynamical Complexity"

2:30pm to 3:30pm

## Location:

Manchester Building (Hall 2), Hebrew University Jerusalem

I will discuss, for differentiable dynamical systems, three ways to capture dynamical complexity:
hyperbolicity, which measures the sensitivity of dependence on initial conditions.
entropy, which measures the predictability of future dynamical events in the sense of information theory.
the speed of correlation decay or equivalently the rate at which memory is lost.
