I'd like to Pursue a Career related to chaos theory

  1. Mar 31, 2010 #1
    I have a BS in math and to think of it Chaos theory was why I got into this field to begin with.

    Which educational/career path should i follow from now on?

    The closest analog I've seen, at least at my school, would be work on PDEs and dynamical systems.

    I am an applied math major, so those are all math programs. I'm strongly considering going into dynamics as well. I have taken PDEs, ODEs, classical dynamics, and have signed up for my first official "dynamical systems" class next semester. This is a pretty common route.

    Many physicists study non-linear dynamics as well, for what it's worth. Both of my classical dynamics books contain entire chapters on chaos.

    Not enough info for ya? http://www.dynamicalsystems.org/ap/pg/" [Broken]
