Head of the laboratory prof., habil. dr. Kęstutis Pyragas
The laboratory performs theoretical investigations in the fields of nonlinear dynamics and nanophysics. The analysis of nonlinear systems is a complicated problem, because they do not satisfy the superposition principle. Even very simple nonlinear systems may reveal chaotic behaviour. Chaos is usually an undesired phenomenon and one needs to develop the control algorithms in order to overcome it. Now the methods of nonlinear dynamics are widely used in such fields as biology and medicine. For example, it has been revealed that the Parkinsonian decease arises due to the pathological synchronization of a certain type of neurons. This synchronization can be suppressed by external or feedback signals. The laboratory deals with development of algorithms for the desynchronization of neural networks.
