DSWeb Dynamical Systems Software aims to collect all available software on dynamical systems theory. This project was originally launched during the special year Emerging Applications of Dynamical Systems, 1997/1998, at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications. The information here includes functionality, platforms, languages, references, and contacts.

DynamicalSystems.jl (Julia)

Prize Winner - DSWeb 2018 Software Contest, Undergraduate/Graduate Student Category

By George Datseris

DynamicalSystems.jl is a software library for the exploration of chaos and nonlinear dynamics. It is written entirely in Julia, a new programming language with large potential. From a technical viewpoint, DynamicalSystems.jl is composed of (currently) four packages for the Julia language and is not an independent application. DynamicalSystems.jl is available via Julia's package manager or via Download on GitHub, where you also find a complete documentation.

The ultimate goal for DynamicalSystems.jl is to be a useful library for students and scientists working on chaos, nonlinear dynamics and in general dynamical systems. The authors do not provide ‘‘just code’’, but also detailed descriptions and references for as many methods as possible. In addition, we strive for conciseness, transparency, performance, accuracy and reliability.

All information is contained within the .pdf file "GeorgeDatseris_DSWeb2018.pdf". There you fill find the description of the software DynamicalSystems.jl, along with everything else necessary for this application.

Some examples are contained in the "supplement.zip".
