NonLinear Dynamics Group


The NonLinear Dynamics Group is a multidisciplinary research unit in the areas of mathematical physics, dynamical systems and mathematical biology. We are involved in research projects in the areas of mathematical biology, dynamical systems, control theory and modeling and simulation of complex life phenomena (systems biology, bioinformatics and computational biology). Our research work involves the development and analyses of mathematical models and the associated numerical simulations. We have special interests in the calibration and validation of models of natural phenomena, where we use mono-objective and multi-objective optimization techniques. We maintain a basic research activity in the foundations of dynamical system theory and mathematical physics.
