Organized by:  Department of Physics, UNAAB
Sponsored by: The University Management  and the Department of Physics
Guest Lecturer: Prof. S. K. Dana, Head of Central Instrumentation, Indian Institute of
Chemical Biology, Kolkata

Progrqamme outline:
1.    A general lecture introducing “Chaos and Synchronization: Rhythms of Living systems” etc as it affects participants from different field. Further Lectures on Experimental chaos in the form of seminars in different fields.
2.    Practical connections of electronic components on a circuit board for the visualization of the chaotic dynamics of certain chaotic systems on an oscilloscope or screen.
3.    Design of electronic circuit from a set of differential equations for its practical implementation.
4.    Introduction and installations of the soft ware used in experimental chaos.
5.    Connection of electronic components on circuit board by participants themselves.
