haskell.org now has a blog.

Hello there! What you're reading is a blog post. Where is it from? It's from https://blog.haskell.org. What's it doing? It's cataloging the thoughts of the people who run Haskell.org. That's right. This is our new adventure in communicating with you. We wanted some place to put more long-form ...

There's a lot of hype about chaos theory, but Predrag is a good physicist, and he's written a good free textbook on the subject, so this is the real deal.

To register, just go to his webpage here. The course started a week ago but you can still join in. It lasts 8 weeks. It'll use his book, links to explanatory videos, and weekly homework assignments, which include some computer programming. For the assignments you can use any computational tools you want, but he'll provide you with stuff written in Python. There are no tests.

He encourages you to register even if you won't do the homework: you can talk to other students on the course forum.

Some administrators from his university tried to shut this course down at the last minute, probably because it's

This course is called

Topology of flows - how to enumerate orbits, Smale horseshoes

Quantitative dynamics - periodic orbits, local stability

The role of symmetries in dynamics

There will also be a second, more advance 8-week course called

Transfer operators - statistical distributions in dynamics

Spectroscopy of chaotic systems

Dynamical zeta functions

Dynamical theory of turbulence

The prerequisites for this first course are a basic background in linear algebra, calculus, ordinary differential equations, probability theory, classical mechanics, and statistical mechanics. You'll need to able to work with equations involving vectors and matrices, differentiate simple functions, and understand what a probability distribution is. You will learn to write programs in Python.

Nonlinear Dynamics 1: Geometry of Chaos is a free online class taught by Predrag Cvitanović of Georgia Institute of Technology

You've seen the Apollo 11 Saturn V launch. But probably not at 500 frames/sec, with commentary.

This is fabulous, and not just because there's fire and steam and hellishly incomprehensible forces. Although that helps. It's also, you know, science. And history. It's the very first step in a journey that would land two human beings on a body that's more than a light-second away from Earth, and return them safely.

With fire. And steam. And hellishly incomprehensible forces.
