Nonlinear Dynamics Personnel

What a chimera, then, is man! What a novelty, what a monster, what a chaos, what a subject of contradiction, what a prodigy! A judge of all things, feeble worm of the earth, depositary of the truth, cloaca of uncertainty and error, the glory and the shame of the universe! - Blaise Pascal.

Washington Area Chaos Group photo

This October 15, 1998 photo of the Washington Area Chaos Group includes scientists, faculty, visitors, and graduate students from George Mason University, Howard University, The Naval Academy, Naval Research Laboratory, Naval Surface Warfare Center, University of Delaware, University of Maryland, including mathematicians, physicists, engineers, and biologists. The occasion of the photo? we sent out an email announcement that a chaos group photo would be taken after the seminar. A list of the people in the photo is available
